Thoughts on the Retron 5?
>>
May as well just emulate.
>>
>>322575452
Bad because you cant play undertale on it
>>
>>322575452
I've held that controller. While the buttons and analog stick are nice, the overall ergonomics are about as shit as you'd expect from something shaped like that.

Overall, it's a decent machine. Waiting on the Retron 6 to add N64 support. Someday...

That controller looks cancerous

Shit. Pick up the actual console at a thrift store instead.

>>322575452
left my wife cause she didn't like it
>>
it's fucking awful just get the real consoles or emulate
>>
>>322575641
I don't know where you live, but the retro gaming craze has stripped thrift stores of anything cool, gaming wise.
I remember going into thrift stores 6 years ago and easily finding N64 and SNES carts, but good fucking luck, unless you live in some hick town.

>all the inconvenience of consoles
>with all the inconsistency of emulation

I mean unless you really desperately want to give some chink on alibaba your money just get an original console
>>
It's literally just emulators packed into a console

I live in the north east

80% of my room is thrift store finds, including every console that isnt from this gen or last.

My most recent "big" find was R-type for 10 bucks, and Tales of Destiny for $20

just went to NYC last year. So much price gouging in the retro games market, it kills my motivation.
>>
>>322576661

That's the city, where it costs 1.5k a month to live in a box. I live a half hour east of NYC.
>>
>>322575452
It's just phone hardware with (illegally used) emulators on it.
>>
Got it for my husband for christmas after his original nintendo broke. He loves it!

You live in the Atlantic Ocean?

Question!

Are any other controllers compatible with this? A game shop near has these in stock and I will be damned if I don't kinda want to get one

Retrofreak is infinitely better, but useless since its basically a glorified expensive emulator
>>
>>322577116

No, I live on that massive landmass east of the tiny little peninsula that is manhattan.
>>
>>322577576
And or if I wanted to get the older consoles should I just find a cheap fat TV to play it on?

I have no idea how any of this shit works in terms of using it on newer tvs

you plug them in retard. if your TV doenst have the inputs, then you need an adpater or switcher.
>>
>>322577863

Non-HD consoles look like shit on HDTVs. CRTs are the way to go for old consoles.

Newer TVs will also give you massive amounts of input lag, and anything using a lightgun will just not work.

I suggest a Sony Trinitron

>>322575452
my wife over on /vr/ loves it.
>>
Letterbomb your fucking Wii and install some emulators.

>>322578004
