      I could never get used to that low dpad on the 3DS’s

        These always looked surprisingly comfy. Even if I don’t use the 3D, I don’t think I’d be comfortable not having it, though. You’d never have the ability to experience everything a game has to offer, if only once just to go, “Hey, that’s neat.”

        It does kind of suck. It’s a shame, because it’s a nice clicky pad.

          I too would like some evidence.

          Though it’s not retro Pokemon Sun and Moon ran pretty rough in certain segments. Things like totem battles lowered frames noticeably or when a lot of pokemon were on the screen. I remember people really tried pushing the system and if you did that 4 person battle and everyone used Moltres you dropped to under 10 frames second. Other than the sequel I never saw one run that poorly.

            To be fair, GameFreak are amazingly incompetent coders, the Pokémon are high poly, more than the games should be, there’s a ton of poor optimization and 2GBs of those games are *multiple* Lillie models, hence the "Lillie Island" in that fan hack spawning all of them in a single island as a gag

                Pretty much, yeah. My New 3DS XL runs it far better than my OG 3ds, but it’s still slow at times. They’re horribly unoptimized games.

            I had a 2DS where the B button felt like shit, I wouldnt be surprised if Nintendo used cheap rubber for the membrane. Go on aliexpress and buy membranes for it, make sure it’s for the original and not new 2DS. Isnt that hard to replace just a few screws and ribbon cables.

          Not him, but on the Nintendo Official Store, 2DS go for $50 and 2DSXL go for $100. I bought several of them because Nintendo refurbs are basically brand new. The inventory was empty from last December until around June. They restocked all through June, and have been out of stock since. I’m guessing they refurb huge batches and then list them. Hard telling if they’ll come back or not.

            Swelling batteries can put pressure on and damage other components. I believe PSPs can crack the screen because of a swollen battery.

              I have 2 out of 15+ psp’s that haven’t got swolen batteries. Not one of them has a cracked screen because of the battery. The Battery pops the battery cover off.
              My wife’s cellphone’s batter balloned in her sealed case. The whole phone is bulged and it still hasn’t cracked the screen. We keep the phone in a clay pot outside in case the battery ever decides to ignite. Thanks LG. I’m glad they don’t make phones anymore.

      I recently hacked my Switch and I’m starting to play retro shit there. There’s something nice about being able to play it while taking a dump and the next second playing them on my TV.
      Retroarch on Switch works nice with shaders, my personal favorite is ntsc-320px-gauss-scanline. Dunno if there’re better shaders for a CRT look.

      I prefer the new systems because you get better SNES coverage, TGCD, and some PSX. You can even configure PSX to run some games smoother. I finished Castlevania SotN on mine with no performance issues but text would sometimes display funny or not at all in cutscenes but you could hear it anyway. I wouldn’t play to many 3D games on it though as those are kind of choppy.

They gave me shit about not being able to put video games down as they browsed their facebook feeds endlessly at the airport. When I pointed out the irony I was ignored, which with boomers, is as good as a victory.

            Consider this: they are both, in fact, quite gay. I can’t really think of any reason to play games outside of the house, especially since there’s no public transportation where I live. Maybe as a kid when I couldn’t put down Pokemon Yellow for two seconds, but I just don’t see the point in pulling out a dedicated handheld to play games while I’m out of the house.

            What are you on about your not emulating DS games on a 3DS with twilight menu it has the same compatibility or better because it natively runs them. Feel free to spend money on something you don’t need but let others know there is a free option.

              There’s more to compatibility than whether or not it uses emulation. Using clean binaries instead of patching the shit out of them to run a loader matters, for example.

      Almost every model of 3DS is over priced now, back in Gamestop’s heyday when the original DS came out everything GBA but Pokemon went dirt cheap, I remember OG GBA being $30 and SP $50, flash forward to today and some 3DS models are selling for more than a new Switch.

      What is it Ganker?

        Combination of things really, now instead of having to put up with Gamestop everyone is selling on Amazon/eBay where people tend to give more. Also the 3DS had eshop games which makes became seller think "Oh I bought like 10 games on it for $30 each which means I need to add $100 to the price tag." Even if its shitty games no one wants. We also leave in the era of scalping, anyone with money knows when Nintendo products are on close out buy as many as you can because you’ll make a profit at sometime. Not to mention how easy this thing is to hack it makes it even more sought after.
