Retro Is Cool

Modding Project by @WiiuGold, turning an Amazon DIY Mini-Cab into nice finished box for your Retro Switch Gaming!

The other day, I was chatting with @WiiUGold from GBATemp, helping him out with some info on getting his ESP8266 device working on his Switch using the @RetroGamer_74 payloads, and he posted some cool 'Mario Cab' photos, and then decided to show his thanks for our MaxConsole UnderGround help, by making another 'Switch Cab' this time with an skin matching our site, so check out the cool photos below of the whole building, sanding process, and the finished artwork afterwards, then all you got to do is slide in your Nintendo Switch console like shown in his early Mario one and enjoy some cool-ass Retro Gaming in pure Arcade style! :)

The internet was on fire last night after two big announcements were made by Sega, first we are happy to report all the details on their upcoming new Sega Genesis Mini, now originally the news was 'only in Japan', but PolyGon has gotten the low-down on all this 'sudden mini craze' by Sega, and it seems the failed AtGames flashback people are still involved, but its all new hardware, emulation, features and other regions might also get the 'cartridge port' like the previous attempts of Sega Mini that AtGames was doing via previous license agreements, but this all new with more official Sega marketing and team behind it, so hopefully it all works out better.
