I recently picked up a custom @retrogamingnow Gameboy powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero. The picture has it sitting next to my recently modded GBA. I waited a long time for this thing and was thrilled to finally get it in my hands. I’m still putting it through its paces but it hasn’t been all rainbows and good vibes so far. The overall build quality is really great. Everything is clean and it looks very polished. But I have run into some laggy performance, lackluster battery life and there are some issues with the screen that are really bothering me. I’m not sure if this is par for the course or if the issues are exclusive to my build or the limitations of the Zero. The price of the console isn’t cheap and I guess I thought the overall performance would better reflect that premium price. I’m still troubleshooting and trying to test out stuff that might help remedy my issues. Once I’ve had more time with it I’ll definitely update with a more in depth write up. It does look cool tho! Have any of you built or bought one of these setups? Any tips or thoughts?
X is for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on the Switch and my choice for today’s #rcea2z post. I own the first one on the Wii but just never seem to get a chance to play it because, well to be honest I have my Wii boxed up. This one has impressed me so far with its style, gameplay and story. I was a little disappointed with the massive amount of texture mapping and screen blurring that happens when you’re moving around but that appears to be a common Nintendo Switch performance issue. I’m not a graphics whore but the old pcgamer in me can’t help but to cringe at those imperfections. All in all I’ve enjoyed what I’ve played so far and look to actually play this game through hopefully making it my second game I finish on the switch. #nintendoswitch#nintendo#xenobladechronicles2#monolith#jrpg#nes#snes#nintendolife#gameboy#3ds#superfamicom#retrogamer#collector#igersnintendo#instagamer
