Tech Demo: Raspberry Pi/RetroPie as an Emulation Machine

Were you also one of the unlucky saps who never even got a chance to see a NES Classic Mini in real life, much less buy one from someone who wasn’t an asshole scalper? Here’s the thing, though: You don’t have to be left out in the cold simply because you aren’t rolling in Benjamins!

This video tests out the awesome emulation capabilities of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, in 1080p! Even better, the Pi uses a MicroSD card as its primary storage, and I managed to get an actual 128GB card that wasn’t a cheap knockoff!

From the NES all the way to the Playstation One, the Pi can definitely do what the Mini Nintend-can’t! After a solid month of programming, I now have:

  • a dedicated capture device that blows away the original consoles and easing the burden on my already taxed PC.
  • a new heart for my XArcade-powered home arcade cabinet that’s leaps and bounds ahead of the Windows XP computer that used to run it.
  • a highly portable and customizable console that can output into HD and SD monitors with ease.

My total investment into the Raspberry Pi project is around $70 for the kit and the 128GB MicroSD card. If you’re looking for something that you can truly make your own, I highly suggest getting yourself a Raspberry Pi and get gaming!

Thanks for watching, and Lumpz the Clown OUT!

Not Dead Yet…

Hey hey, folks! Lumpz the Clown here, and it’s been a hot minute since I’ve updated you illustrious folks with an update from the painted gamer himself!

In other words, paying homage to the hard work of my fellow gamers (you know who you are!) and deciding what direction Lumpz the Clown Entertainment will take next!

So…what’s coming up? Peep below and find out! Continue reading
