Everdrive N8 Review

Posted by in Reviews

With the rarity of some NES games and the prices starting to get out of hand it can be really difficult to find those old games that have been calling out to you from your childhood. You’ve probably used emulators, and while they’re fun, they just don’t feel right. I’m not speaking of ethics but the feeling you get when you play a physical game. If you’ve got a Steam account, then you probably know what I mean; how many of those games have you actually played? Compare that to…read more

Finding a Gyromite Famicom Adapter

Posted by in Guides

If you’ve ever wanted to start importing Famicom games and play them on your NES you’ll find that not only do the cartridges have completely different dimensions, but the number of pins on the contained boards are completely different as well. To play them you’ll need a Famicom to NES adapter. The simplest solution would be to find an adapter that let’s you connect the Famicom cartidge directly to the adapater, without disassembly, such as the Honey Bee.

Opening an NES Cartridge

Posted by in Guides

If you’ve been collecting NES games for any length of time you’ve probably come across some cartridges that could use a good cleaning, but when you go to open them up you find that these aren’t any ordinary screws.

There’s an ongoing discussion over at the discussion boards on Krikzz’s website about Nintendo 64 Disk Drive (64DD) games that have been dumped to rom files and have been modified in order to run on the Everdrive 64. Currently, you’ll need to install a custom OS on the Everdrive 64, but that is as simple as copying a few files to…read more

Everdrive 64 Review

Posted by in Reviews

The Nintendo 64 had some of the best multiplayer/party games of all time, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, just to name a few, but some of these games can be a lot harder to come by lately and the prices are going up. Nintendo’s Virtual Console have been a great way to play these classics, but there are still many games that simply won’t be re-release any time soon. As far as emulation goes, while there has been great progress (with many games now playable) they’re not accurate…read more
