I recently contacted David Yu, the Marketing Director for Hyperkin, they are the creators of the SupaBoy, a portable Super Nintendo system, as well as the previous line of RetroN products (currently up to the RetroN3). Hyperkin is preparing to release the RetroN5, a sleek system capable of playing NES, SNES, Genesis, Famicom, Game Boy, and GBA games via HDMI with the ability to use packaged wireless controllers or the original system controllers. The RetroN5 is an all-in-one package that caters to the modern retro gamer. If you grew up with these systems, you've most likely moved on to others and don't have the ability to keep all of these systems plugged in at once. The busy life of being middle age also hurts your game time, as these classic games usually didn't have saves, meaning completing one took hours. With the RetroN5, Hyperkin plans to fix all of your woes with a unit that will make you literally dust off your old cartridges so they can look suave sticking out of the slim RetroN5, with ease of connection to your HDTV, as well as the ease of fitting into your busy schedule by adding save state capability to your classic games! Below, you will find my interview with David:

Some gamers have waited years to play Earthbound. The re-release of Earthbound for the Wii U Virtual Console is coming in 2013. What does it mean? Will the price drop on the physical game? Will Wii U sales start to pick up? GoozerNation looks at all of this and wonders what this means for the future of other rare games and re-releases.
I’ve been a Star Wars fan for the vast majority of my life. I suppose most of you could say that too. After all, you clicked through to read a review of a Star Wars book. Let me say right now that you won’t go wrong with the latest novel in the Star Wars universe, the full title being, “Into the Void: Star Wars (Dawn of the Jedi)” written by Tim Lebbon and published by Random House.
Dead Island Riptide is the kind of game people will remember Deep Silver for. This series is how they got their start and it makes sense to continue to move forward with the series. The question is, should gamers play the game solo or attempt to play it co-op? How many hours should gamers expect to invest in the game?
