Retroid Pocket 3+

I ordered one of these handheld Android gaming devices recently, and it will be arriving soon. As processors in the mobile phone space rapidly improve, it’s interesting how other use cases become feasible - enough power/different form-factor and a device focused on emulating a vast range of older gaming systems even up to the PlayStation 2/GameCube/Dreamcast is realistic. I’ll also be trying out builds of Mini vMac and DOSBox, hopefully they’ll be usable also. TBH, I will probably get more jollies from setting it up and tweaking things than I will from actual game time…

I chose “Clear Purple” pictured as it resembles the classic “Atomic Purple” colour-way that sets off a whole bunch of old school Nintendo nostalgia vibes :)

Currently listening: Peshay Studio Set (1996)
