Hello! How is your late spring/early summer going?

Yeah, it's been a while, not to mention that you don't seem to show up so frequently here like you used to.

It's considered summer here, with school out. I'm good.

Three day vacation over (I took one day annual leave, due to feeling burnt out). 4 More days to my next planned vacation.

I never thought I would end up with so many GB handhelds. The newest additions were two DMG-01 GBs from a rummage sale... $10 for both! One of them came with a neat carrying case shaped like a DMG-01 GB, containing one of the handhelds, some third-party rechargeable battery thing, a manual, and a "Side Pocket" game cart. The handheld inside is rather scratched and beat up but it does work. The other GB is almost pristine with hardly no scratches and a brilliant LCD display. It didn't turn on at all when I first tried to, using the other GB's batteries. I put in fresh batteries a few days ago, and the near-pristine GB does work now. Smile I might use the GB case with this particular unit and sell off the working-but-worn GB.

I never played GB games on an original DMG-01, since I never owned a GB until I got a GBC as a Christmas present in 2000. I have seen other people's DMG-01 units over the years though, and was mystified by the slightly blurry soup green LCD. Tongue

As for the GBA consoles... I could name them if I wanted to. The pink one would be Flo, and the blue one Zo. Clifford's Puppy Days was on the air during the golden days of the GBA, so such names I find very fitting. I would like to use the pink GBA more, but I worry about getting strange looks from people. Ah well, the blue one is nice too. Unsure about what to do with the AGB-001 GBA. Ashens is 100% right about the inability to see these screens without very good light.

Addendum to my GBA post, and something SSC related. Tongue

David, have you played the GBA SSC games before? I know there are at least two GBA games based on 2004 SSC. There is also a GBA Video cartridge as well, containing two stories also from the 2004 version.

The latter cartridge's largely a mixed bag imo. It doesn't run at all on a GBA Player presumably due to copyright concerns, but that would be moot as the quality's sub-par anyway.

And that's just the GBA/DS ones...

I applaud Majesco for not region-locking their videos /* angry stare at Leapfrog */

Long overdue benchmark results of that Android TV stick I purchased...

Yep, the box was right. This stick does have a Rockchip CPU as indicated in the pictures above. It's also at the bottom rung of performance in comparison to the ASUS Zen Phone 5, but I think it's on par with a budget dual-core tablet. It won't be blazing fast like Hazel, but for video streaming and occasional gaming, the stick should run well.

To that end, I did take note that when you stream a lot of video, the Android stick does get very hot to the touch, though it cools off once streaming is done. I wonder if this will reduce the lifespan of the device in the long run, but it does have a large air vent along the bottom with a heatsink visible.

Oh, and because of this streaming stick, Netflix is becoming more enticing. I'll explain my reasons later. Wink

At least Drastic should run fine there with some frameskip used. Wink

I guess nothing can defeat the Meizu MX4, with it's retina sound system :/

(what the heck is retina sound anyway? What does a retina sound like? The mind boggles...)
