    I'd hazard a guess that it's not a video of a physical Lynx.

    I got my two done before the BennVenn was a thing, but yes - amazing how it brings the console a new life. Also I too have spent a stupid amount of time playing Blockout, it's a lot of fun discovering games you didn't buy back in the day.

    Well to be honest, I have the McWill too on the Lynx I (and a game gear). I have another 10 game gears awaiting repair (I've actually got a McWill for sale on eBay at the moment) and a similar number of Lynx units (I & II) in various working condition. I lusted after these systems as a kid but my parents could never afford them. It's great to have them now, and funnily enough my kids like them too (rampage is a favourite).

    If you don't already have it and it sounds like you might I can recommend the new Gamedrive cart.

    Oh do proceed! Like an Everdrive? I have the El CheapoSD from BV - keen to get something for the Game Gear and I was thinking about making one for my Vectrex units.

    Rollcage Stage II - have to pretty much sit still to take a 'decent' photo.
    crusty old 68CM Tevion with the sharpness at 15 to make the ps1 dithering go away.

    Only just retro but FarCry 2 seems to be my go-to shooter these days - I know it's just the same shit over and over but it's good shit :D The devs came up with a core set of mechanics and tuned them to perfection, and the clever AI and fire / destructible environment means endless chaos and fun. Love it.

    I play with a few mods to turn off the non-story malaria BS, better FOV, reshade, etc. 60 FPS or more causes the physics to wig out at times but I'll take the high frames and and the lols when the occasional body goes flying.

    I've spent a little while now dumping, preserving and remastering Sega SC-3000 tape games on my site. After a recent "Australia Preserves" presentation, I've been motivated to have a crack at archive.org style "MAME in a web browser" to make these games work. Proving a little tricky due to tape images (rather than just disk/rom/cartridge).

    Today's progress was getting MAME built to a ECMAScript target, building an Emularity wrapper and lunching it in a browser with the Sega SC-3000 BIOS and SEGA-BASIC cartridge loading. Next step is hopefully getting save states to work, as that will be much faster than loading in a tape image realtime (2 minutes for a few KB of data!).

    Hopefully the next picture I post is more interesting than just a BASIC startup screen, and shows a real game. :)

    It's alive!

    Compiled up the ECMAscript version of MAME, combined it with Emularity, sought help from fellow OCAUers on how to grab some data I needed.

    This is running with previous Sega SC-3000 cassette tape games that I recorded to wav files, edited until they worked, pulled into a MAME version of a virtual SC-3000, and wrote back out to a clean digital wav file.

    Many years of work, all so you can play it in your browser for 30 seconds. :)
