    Did he just say the original nes games were $15-20? I think that soul patch has leeched into his brain

    Be careful or you’ll Linus Tech tip your equipment and i think you voided the warranty. Lol. I had to play one game and stick another game on top to keep it from popping up.

    Nestalja, I don't remember the 80's that well but I still remember my original game boy and nentendo game councle. I'm to old, this makes me feel old and nestalja XD. Funny side story, I stopped playing my original Nintendo game councle once I got my saga dream cast, it was so much better and it could play CD's, I never did find out how to connect it to the internet though but South Park ralley was my favorite game on it and after that was fighting force 2.

    I really miss Bill's sole crack open clips. This partnering is really taking Bill's charisma away!

    Too much talking, also, use a Raspberry Pi 3 and save some money

    Retro Nintendo accessories you say?
    You have just attracted r/gaming and r/games to this video. I could already hear their heavy breathing.

    Why is the audio so bad? This is c|net, buy a boom mic.

    Guy on the left of the video keeps talking over the guy on the right, very annoying. If they let each other speak without interrupting this would be an incredible video.
