Yes, an old dream is about to come true! We are giving the final touches to our online store, and we will have many surprises for the classic gamer! Our store will offer classic retro games that are tested and guaranteed to work, and those will be displayed on the site in a different way than other retro game online stores. You’ll be able to see images of the actual game you’ll be buying instead of a stock photo of the cover of the game with no way to know if the game has a nice label, has any scratches or if the case is cracked and how big the crack is! Most sites only list the game and if it comes with manual or case, but you can’t see the actual game.
The Raspberry Pi foundation released a new Raspberry Pi today to celebrate Pi day! A few improvements were made in the specs of the micro single board computer, but do not expect a huge increase in performance from the Pi 3 Model B. The Model B+ that just released has a slightly faster 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, Bluetooth 4.2, dual-band Wi-Fi and 3x faster ethernet port, even though not by much, this version is a clear update from the previous version, and expect everyone to be using this one from now on, specially because it comes at the same $35 base price.
This is great news for gamers that use Raspberry Pi for their emulation needs! Right now, you can get the Super Tinytendo Case for Raspberry Pi 3, 2 and Model B with a large cooling fan for only $13.14 at Amazon. We don’t know for how long this sale will last, but it’s 56% off right now on a pretty cool Raspberry Pi case for your gaming setup! You can also fit an ASUS Thinkerboard on the case on this SNES Inspired Raspberry Pi case.
As always, we recommend you to act fast if you want to guarantee one of those, because at this price, it will not last long!
Mark Bussler, from Classic Game Room, one of the oldest gaming channels on YouTube, is moving away from the platform and going into Amazon Video. His move was reported to his Patreon subscribers a few weeks ago, but the news of the move came out last week as reported by Pat the NES Punk on his “Completely Unnecessary Podcast“.
Following the move from Mark, Pat interviewed him again for the “Not So Common Podcast” a YouTube program in which Pat Contri interviews other YouTubers, mainly gaming-related content creators and personalities. This is one of my favorite podcasts, since we can get a glimpse on what other gaming chanel’s creators are thinking, a bit of their history, how they work and their plans for the future.

WinUAE v3.6.1 Final is released. WinUAE is the commodore amiga emulator for Windows. WinUAE is a mostly complete software emulation of the hardware of the Commodore Amiga 500/1000/2000. A Commodore Amiga, for those who don’t know, is a 16/32 bit computer system based on the Motorola 680×0 CPU and a few specially designed custom chips that provide very good graphics and sound capabilities. Its first incarnation, the A1000, appeared in 1985, followed by the highly successful A500 and A2000 models.
WinUAE is a port of the originally written for Unixish systems UAE; but over time, it seems the Windows port, WinUAE has become the best version available on any platform. WinUAE is free software: you are welcome to distribute copies of it and/or modify it, under certain conditions. There is no warranty of any kind for UAE.
