    Loved playing the GameCube. I actually went and bought. Then resprayed a Wavebird, golden like the triforce. Because I was a bit of a zelda fan. Used to play WW special edition with OoT Master Quest. Fuck that version was tricky.

    I'd hate to recommend downloading roms for free... but I just download roms to differing old systems. NES roms are just a few kb per game. You'll need an emulator, which acts like the "box" which plays the game. I can play any NES game (as well as Sega Genesis, SNES, Gboy Advance and many, many others). And yes, Mike Tyson's Punchout is still a blast, and yes Mr. Sandman is still the toughest opponent to me :D

    Well, considering I don't have a TV, a gameboy would certainly make sense.

    I have my old xbox modded and run emulators. Every ROM ever. Bionic Commando on NES is my favorite atm, Mario 64 and Kart are up there as well. Turok the dinosaur hunter pretty much defined the FPS controller.

    From the way your talking I'd guess we are closer in age, think I might be a little bit older. Is it hard to get your box modded? I just download via PC, use my xbox controller (with cord) to play. Nothing like playing some old GBA Pokemon games via PC :P You haven't lived until you get super baked and play The Adventures of Lolo 1 & 2 8-)

    ROMs are life, don't let any fool tell you otherwise. I busted my back, mowed lawns, and hustled my ass off for those damned NES, Atari, and Sega games back in the day - oftentimes $49.99 a pop - so I'll DAMNED well enjoy ALL the ROMs I'd like, guilt free. (Steps away from podium)

    And yush, Tyson's is my favorite NES game of all time, so much so that I've got four hard copies, 'just in case'. ;)

    Speaking of, here is a shot of (the great) Ronald Isley next to Sandman....if you can find a shot of Ron grimacing the likeness is even more apparent. Teeth, nose, forehead structure, hairline, chin....

    Its the original black xbox, and no, not hard at all. My college Networking teacher some years back had a plug-n-play chip he gave me for it. Its been a while so bear with me. Once installed I used a patch cable to sideload a new OS to the xbox. It's called Slayer 2.7 (pretty sure). Once loaded it can take emulators and whatever other file really, flash drive on any controller port via adapter, or ftp from home network.

    I had a pretty massive collection of original Nintendo gear. Like 60+ games in box and instructions, the console with controls, guns, pads, gyro, etc, all in boxes. Then I sold them, like a dumbass.

    I'm definitely getting the NES Mini when it comes out.

    I've dabbled in 3d printing a case for the Raspberry Pi and ran some emulations. It's fun and all, but it's not like the real thing.
