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! Continue reading

Autosaves, long-grinding sessions, mind-numbing statistics, OH MY! Guess who decided to hell with that in the name of children, whilst also keeping the average overworked adult gamer in mind years later? SQUARE DID!

Summer Brutality 2016 Playlist

Change is inevitable, but some things are timeless. Summer Brutality is no exception! Unofficially started two years ago and picking up a little more clout in 2015, this annual livestream event has grown into something I could scarcely imagine was possible!

This year, I’ve upped the ante to include Continue reading

My Top Five Most Nostalgic Games

Ye ask, and ye shall receive! Recently called out by my fellow YouTube compatriots Heavy Metal Gamer and Alex Pleasant, I go back to where it all began and fondly remember the games that gave birth to the painted menace before you today!

And to give you an idea as to why I chose these particular games over all of the rest, here’s the definition of nostalgia according to Merriam-Webster:

a wistful or excessively sentimental yearning for return to or of some past period or irrecoverable condition;

Bottom line, I’m proud that these games came into my life, regardless if I think they’re still playable today or ones that I’d recommend to anyone else. We all started somewhere, and this is where I happened to start my own journey into one of the most rewarding pastimes in recent history!

Thanks for watching and strolling down memory lane with me. Lumpz the Clown OUT!

The Great Duck Hunt Experiment

Heya, folks! Lumpz the Clown here, and I have to say that I had a blast making this. We as retrogamers need to understand that one day, CRT televisions will no longer be readily available. And when that day finally comes, retro greats like Wild Gunmen and Duck Hunt may no longer be playable!

In anticipation of this shortage, I find it my duty to not only stockpile my own collection of CRT televisions (most of which can be found for free on Craigslist), but to also inform my fellow retrogamers before it’s too late.

This video aims to inform you of which monitors work with Duck Hunt and other lightgun games, and which ones don’t. It’s quite possible that these will disappear in our life time, so get them while you can! Lumpz the Clown OUT!
