The Retron 5 is ink-licious

Two new things to add to the collection this week and neither are actual video games. The first thing is a new Amiibo, this time it's the Inkling Girl from Splatoon. I really love the game so I decided having an Amiibo from it is only right. The next thing is a new console for me but not to play new games on it. It's the Retron 5 from Hyperkin, a console that allows me to play NES, Super Nintendo, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games through HDMI output. It looks very good, the sound is great and it allows me to play with the original controllers. It was always a bit of a hassle to connect one of those consoles. Getting it out, finding the cables and connecting them,... Now I can play all those on one console and it looks amazing. Very glad with this purchase! It's also a nice bonus that it allows games from all regions so I can start looking into import games more, especially for Mega Drive because I didn't have an import adaptor for that one before.
