Website Updating. - 09 Jun 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

Slowly going through my old technical notebook page, found above, and updating the files where I can. Since the last time I accessed or dealt with those files we're back in uh.. 2005-6! So. Yes! Doing my best to find updated versions when possible!

Also, you'll notice the name of the site has changed a little. A Retrocade Romp! Sounds better in my head. I Also got rid of the wanted section, combined the Misc and Contact section and added new sections with more... actual content that may be updated more often.

I may move over to a new URL. I'll redirect if that happens.

Woah, PS2 Extravaganza - 06 Jun 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

A friend sent me a modded PS2 Slim and a WHOLE boatload of PS2 and PSX games- many imports, and some burned games and some official copies. This is a large mess to sort through so It'll be a bit for me to add it all to the collection. laughing

Also, my Model Lynx 2 came back from being recapped. The person who did it, tpugmire on AtariAge, did a lovely job. The screen is nice and bright, and he caught other issues that he offered to fix. It works really great now! He also kept in communication well.

If he offers to fix your console, he does a good job. I recommend, 5/5 stars.

Switch It On! - 08 May 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

I now own a Switch Lite! This is the first time in a long while I've owned a console while it was still relevant and being actively developed for. I did have a 3DS for about eight months before Nintendo more or less stopped supporting it, so I don't actually count it that much.

That being said, I'm looking forward to many enjoyable gaming hours on it!

Lynx sent to the Vet - 06 May 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

My Poor Model 2 Lynx is sick with a weak screen, evident of most capacitor issues and has been sent off to get recapped by tpugmire on Atari Age!

Hopefully this will fix the issue!

Ewwww.... - 01 Apr 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

So I got the right GameBit screwdriver to open the Toploader NES I got to clean it inside, and as I suspected, It'd been a roach nest one time. No live activity, but dead bugs and dried bug 'dirt' angry. Cleaned it out, gave the exterior another clean and bam, much better. And sounds less like a cockroach maraca when you shake it. tongue

Also no April Fools jokes. Those are lame.

(UN)-Wanted List. - 25 Mar 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

Think it's time to replace the Wanted List with something else. A lot of what I want nowadays are rare things or pipe dreams, such as a Neo-Geo AES or Vextrex, etc. Since I have most of the things you'd consider 'pedestrian' I wanted.

Maybe just make it the 'Blog' section. Or maybe a reviews section. Though I think I wanna keep the reviews for the Youtube channel I'm working on, too. Hrm. I'll think of something!

Toploader NES!? Toploader NES. :D - 15 Mar 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

ToploaderGot myself a toploader NES for a good price. Downside? Was dirty as heck. Goodside? Cleaned really easily. Works fine, too. Just waiting for a power supply replacement, the one it came with was like... for a dustbuster vacuum. It worked, but the wattage is too low on it.O

Oh. That picture? Just a stock image~ I might aswell make my posts look fancy, right?~ tongue

The No Swear Gamer - 12 Mar 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

Check out The No Swear Gamer on Youtube.. He does a lot of fun reviews and doesn't rely on 'angry reviews' or crass jokes. Very informative and fun to watch. Here's a recent video about Frogger II: Three Deep on the Atari 2600 I enjoyed a lot.

Super Famicom - It's So Pudgy! n.n - 11 Mar 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

It's so pudgy!Let me talk about the Super Famicom I got recently! I have a Super Nintendo, but I'm starting to think I enjoy the Super Famicom more for a few reasons. Why? Well. For the dumbest reason. I just like hiw pudgy it looks. I like how the front face looks. I like that clicky power button and eject button. I like the the clink sound carts make going in.

I also enjoy the look of the Super Famicom controllers too, with those multicolored buttons. Albeit. I don't like the much shorter cord. Basically. I'm not gonna lie. ALL my enjoyment comes from how this console looks and feels physically. In the end, it's just the same hardware as the Super Nintendo.

I guess there are dumber reasons to enjoy a retro console!

Super Famicom on the Way! :D - 10 Mar 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

I bought myself a Super Famicom. I've kind of always liked the design of the Super Famicom over the SNES in America. I have no idea why, I just do. I got some China-Knockoff Everdrive clone to run some games off it!

I have thoughts on Everdrives, but I'll save them for a different post soon. tongue

New News System - 09 Mar 2020 - by: Rocky Raccoon
 
 

I've setup a new news system. The bad part, is that the old news is lost! But really, I'll sum it up. 'I got some new systems, and updated my collection list'. That's about it.

Thank you, as I grow accustomed to this new system that'll make it easier for me to keep news than editing an HTML file all the time!
