    It’s The MSneXt - The MSX3 Is On Its Way! - This Week In Retro 82

    For the first time ever we have 4 presenters! A guest from The Retro Hour pops in for a chat this week. Join us for about an hour of chat about old computers. The MSX is back for a 3rd round! Classic hardware returns but it's not another Mini it's a full blown system. Can't wait! We talk about gaming accessibility as 8BitDo show off their controller for gamers with limited mobility (we salute you 8BitDo). Finally, would you switch to a modern recreation of your old hardware in order to preserve it?

    Raspberry Pi Sings Like A PiGUS - This Week In Retro 81

    Another great week for Retro Computing fans. Fancy recreating the unique sounds of the Gravis Ultrasound audio card without having to locate one of the old cards on eBay? No problem, Ian Scott has created the PiGUS which is exactly what you are probably thinking it is. Forget Nemesis from Resident Evil, the real terror that stalks you is Rex from 3D Monster Maze VR! Finally, are you a tech hoarder or a collector? Is there a fine line between and where do you draw it? All that and what might have been our most popular Community Question Of The Week!
