The Gamers Lounge Podcast Retro Edition Ep 3: "Have You Heard of Retroscribe?"


Any retro games we have played?

John - My entire collection tested on the RetroN 5

Erik -  Super Mario World

The RetroN 5: Our Thoughts


Pro’s: Works great, looks and sounds great, firmware updates are nice, save to SD a plus, classic controller ports are perfect.

Con’s: Cheaply made, pins are very tight at first, controller is good but should have a D-pad


Pro’s: Great way to play all carts easy way to test all games I pick up at garage sales. Saving to SD is great lots of sound and graphic options

Con’s:  I agree with John carts are way too snug. Controller could use a dpad. Some games don't work (EA games/repo carts)
