The Genesis of another FPGA legend

Source code for Hardcore recovered from a single ailing harddrive
When Analogue released its modern reimagining of the NES, the Analogue Nt, it was a thing of beauty. The premium $500 price, though, meant it was destined for the serious enthusiast market only. Its follow up, the Analogue Nt Mini, trimmed a couple of features but came in at a far...
"We've got no interest in nostalgia gimmicks or making toys"

You can now run SNES ROMs from an SD card

A new level! New enemies! Better sound! Improved graphics!
If you cast your mind back a short while you'll remember we reported on a story relating to the SNES run-and-gun classic Super Turrican, originally released in 1993. While the game was critically acclaimed at the time, it wasn't the version that developer Factor 5 wanted to release...

Now you're playing with current-gen power
Quite often nowadays talk of playing retro games drifts to emulators - and arguments over them - and services like the Virtual Console.
