Dammit, I'm buying videogames again 

Its a shame that pico-8 isn't running on the Odroid Go.

I'm currently pretty far into Ratchet & Clank PS4 and getting sucked into Cave Story on PSP. I also grab the Odroid Go pretty regularly for shorter and more casual stuff. I love older interesting puzzle games for quick pick up and play.

Best overall?

Pico-8 and Love 2D games would be perfect for the Odroid Go Advance. I wish there was some easy and consolidated way to play a bunch of the neat indie stuff that gets released. Homebrew stuff for retro systems, retro style indie games made for more modern systems etc..

Exercise, self-esteem 

@kensp Ahh :). Well emulating that is way more affordable anyway. But they have cracked down on the ROM sites which makes it harder to get some decent ROMs :thinkhappy:

A few years back I've modded an NES controller and put a raspberry pi 0w into there: magpi.raspberrypi.org/articles

It's actually pretty cool, since the modded controller is connected to the gpio of the Rpi so that you can still use it!

Odroid Go Advance has potential to do a lot of cool portable computing things beyond gaming which is a big reason why I got one and am excited about it. I hope it will eventually get PSP nearly perfect after devs have time to optimize the emulator some more.

The PSP is such a great handheld. Retro gaming handhelds have become pretty popular but the PSP I think outdoes them all in gaming capabilities and is very inexpensive. It is neck and neck with the Odroid Go Advance. Advance wins in shear number of systems it can emulate and other capabilities but PSP isn't far off and even wins in the specific cases of PS1 and PSP(obviously). PSP wins on affordability and convenience.

I find I post a lot more when I'm fediversing on a computer with a real keyboard. It isn't only that I prefer a physical keyboard. I also have a harder time turning my thoughts into words. I think it is because I can't keep up with my brain on touch screen keyboards and then I get frustrated.
