@redpillschool The pocket 2+ should be able to run the very easiest Gamecube games (and not the others) without an issue. The older chips like in this RG280V and pretty much everything else can run the easiest N64 games perfectly, but would hiccup on harder N64 games like Golden Eye. With the Retroid Pocket 2+ you get flawless N64 and some Gamecube.
The problem is that the larger devices like 2+ are just begging to run Wii games through the same Dolphin emulator as Gamecube, but are just a bit shy. For me the RP 2+ is the best for the newer chipset since it doesn't try to go too big, too soon like almost every other newer model. Those will need another huge bump and then minor revision on top of that to be able to utilize their screens for what they offer.
I'd like to own either a Pocket 2+ or RG280V. I'm leaning towards RG280V since it would fit in many more jacket pockets, and it's as close to a complete experience in terms of what is possible at it's size as is available. Also we're not kids anymore so finding six hours to game isn't likely to happen too often, and so the smaller size of the RG280V isn't going to be much of an issue for holding it. It's probably also more child friendly as well.Read More
Realistically the RG280V is the best emulator device that you can own. It's easy to fit into a pocket to kill some awkward waits. These new wide devices are becoming huge, but they're not powerful to have longevity. At least you'll be wanting to have a two versions newer model for enhanced capability. However the RG280V is close to the pinnacle of compactness and power for running these games.
@TiberiusBravo87 Meanwhile I'm just sitting here clothing-optional making money. However, I could lose all this superior entitlement in an instant if I were to have a brain aneurysm due to the clot shot. Why would I do that when I'm over here not feeling the squeeze? Besides I don't even want to.
@TiberiusBravo87 I think that I'd want one of those if it was in the same exact body as the RG551 series that can max out the N64. It's just smaller. I guess the Retroid Pocket 2+ does that though. Between the slim offerings with the new chips and the possibility of picking one up direct shipping from a nearby region, it's not looking too good. Fortunately I hardly need one of these.
@destraht Cedar kills bugs and is a great repellent, which is why too many people make the mistake of using cedar chips for their animals and busting their livers and killing them in short order. Now cedar boards, those would make a fantastic dog house. People use them to line interiors of closets here in the midwest to prevent bugs and moths from gathering in your clothes. Worked in 1800, still works today.
@TiberiusBravo87 This is another reason in a long list why I really like the local street dog breed here. I wouldn't call them mutts but rather the local breed. They're well suited for the climate, and food sources. All of the known breeds that I could find available are either really a lot of work, or not suitable for indoors or outdoors. These dogs also have an innate understanding of cars because it's a huge selection pressure on them. They also need to have better senses about what foods or resins are going to kill them, probably with stronger stomachs as well. If they could eat it and die then that problem would have been solved fifty years ago. If any dog breed is going to develop a natural immunity to parvo it will be these ones.
There are other stray dogs running around here, but I think that they're mostly first generation. They don't seem to do well in comparison at procreating compared to the local breed.Read More
@destraht I get pine chips cheap but I live 3 miles from an industrial-scaled plant that makes them by the 50lb bag. The cedar chips spread around your yard to kill bugs in a radius, but the spot the pooches sleep I'd use pine or straw. Straw has it's own issues of sticking to the dogs and getting drug in the house while also collecting small bugs occasionally, so pine chips has been the best overall for my 2 indoor/outdoor dogs.
