A couple of months ago I found myself at the local Goodwill. I wanted to find a monitor or TV that I could connect the NES Classic to. I searched through piles of monitors and at the bottom found an old Samsung 19" TV. It showed signs of heavy use but as they were only asking $7 it seemed like a good buy. I paid for it and brought it home. I cleaned up the TV and started testing the inputs. It was then I started to realize all the features this little TV has.

Over the years, I've invested a lot of time and money into streamlining my game room. I strongly believe that it shouldn't take more than five minutes to have a game and system ready to play. To accomplish this, I spent hours measuring, researching and arranging all my consoles and TVs into zones. Each zone has a specific purpose such as a retro corner with a CRT for light gun games, or an RF cart for pre-NES consoles. I recently set up a combination PC Gaming/SHMUP Station and here's how I did it.

A couple of months ago I found myself at Goodwill. As I browsed through the layers upon layers of cables, keyboards, and DVD players I noticed what appeared to be an XBOX logo. Sure enough, there were two Duke XBOX controllers and at five bucks each they seemed like a good deal. As I paid for the controllers and walked out the door I assumed all the controllers needed was a little cleaning. Little did I know they would turn in to the next Retro Repairs project.

As long as video game consoles have been around so too has the 3rd party controller. They can be better in quality than first party controllers but often fall far below expectations. The PS2 has been around for almost 19 years now and finding new 1st party controllers is difficult and expensive. 3rd party alternatives like the Logitech Cordless Action are great but are increasingly difficult to source working units. So I set out to find a PS2 controller with features similar to the Logitech Cordless Action.

Thanks to third parties it is easier than ever to find the right adapter. Today we will be looking at a versatile AC adapter manufactured by Power Plus that can be modified to support a large number of consoles.

Pictured: When the best graphics were in your imagination.

I'm going to forgo the endless "winter is coming" jokes about the fall gaming release season, and just get to the point: lottsa big AAA games are here and on the way, and that means many nifty games with a smaller budget are swept up in the crowd and I'm here to champion the under-the-radar releases.  These are the ones that personally caught my eye (OW!) over the last few months and I wanted to bring more awareness.

Posted under My method for cleaning Retro Game controllers, Hidden Gems, Retro Gaming


When it comes to gaming a good controller can make or break the experience. This is especially true for Retro Gaming where split-second timing is required. Sourcing parts for controllers can also be difficult such as the button membranes for the NES Advantage so keeping controllers clean and in good shape is paramount. I have a standard procedure I follow for cleaning my controllers and wanted to share in the hope that we can bring some controllers back to life.

Posted under Homebrew, NES, Hidden Gems


Following a successful Kickstarter Campaign in 2014, Lizard is the latest NES focused homebrew from developer Brad Smith who previously released chiptunes cartridges, Moon8 and 2A03 Puritans. Lizard forgoes powerups, lives, and timers and instead opts for an open-world, platforming adventure. It's an adventure four years in the making, so let's put on our Lizard suit and take a look.

I play a lot of games these days and it takes a special game for me to spend more than a couple hours on. I hadn't followed any media on Kingdom Come Deliverance so I didn't know anything about it going in. What I found was a historically grounded first-person RPG whose gameplay loop is akin to the Elder Scrolls series. Join me as I take a look at the good, the bad, and the buggy in Kingdom Come Deliverance.

Many of us have memories of flipping through the pages of our favorite gaming magazines eagerly digesting every word and picture to find out what was happening in gaming. Publications such as EGM, Nintendo Power, Gamefan, and GamePro gave us reason to frequently check our mailboxes and news stands. Flipping through the pages of these magazines can take us back to the times of our youth, but collecting gaming magazines presents it's own share of issues and takes up valuable space that could be used for games. So what can you do? Many of us have an old tablet lying around, so with a little work, we can turn that old E-reader in to an EGM reader!

Posted under Disney Afternoon, Disney, Capcom, Hidden Gems


I am a child of the 80's/90's and all of the nostalgia that comes with it. The Disney Afternoon was a staple of my childhood and the Capcom developed games were a great way to play in the worlds of DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, and Talespin. Frank Cifaldi and Mike Mika of Digital Eclipse showed their love of these properties when they released the Disney Afternoon Collection on XB1, PC, and PS4. Everybody get ready, it's time for the Disney Afternoon.
