You could build a Raspberry Pi and it would do all the things, and more, than a SNES Classic would do.

I've been wanting to do this for a while, and I even bought all the parts. I just never took the time to put it all together. I think I'll give it a go this weekend.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is reviewing very well.

Not surprising since it is a better version of an already great game with more content.

Either way though, sounds like Switch has its second 'killer app'.

Something tells me it won't have the over 100% attach rate that Breath of the Wild does.

I'm surprised someone doesn't just sell those.

Still waiting for a switch to be in stock near me. I won't be actively searching until after exam season is over anyway so I guess it doesn't matter

You can find them online, but the parts costs about $60-70 dollars on amazon and they sell for around $100 or more. My guess is that most people interested in buying one have enough technical ability to put one together. Everything I've read makes it sounds like a very easy process.

I got one of the amazon kits that comes with all the basics you need. It's all really easy to do and you can just google "retropie installation" and get step by step instructions. I think I got the whole thing going in half an hour and most of that time was downloading software.

Manipulating women...now THAT's hard. Probably because most woman have no clue what they like.

I've rarely played 8 since I never owned the WiiU. Looking forward to having this on my Switch.

Up to 3 divine beasts now in BotW, 71 shrines taken down. I still need to head over to the desert for the Gerudo one, but taking my time trying to hammer out all the shrines. I may cheat in the end to see where the last few are if I can't find them.

I've done all the Divine Beasts and Memories and have 72 shrines. I'm working on some of the side quests with the hopes that they have be bump into some new shrines. I'll probably hit the internet to see where some of my missed shrines are (at least get an idea of general area).
