The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Buying retro console hardware/software
This post is specifically about controllers for the NES and SNES but I leave the thread open to you for discussion about all kinds of retro hardware and software.
I find myself in need of NES and SNES pads; I already have an Advantage for both consoles so luckily I don't need those now. Sellers at Amazon have pads. $20 new for NES, which seems fine to me, but $60 new for a SNES pad is right out. I'd like to get these new but used is alright if I can get it from somewhere a little less anonymous than Amazon. Are there any sources specifically dedicated to retro hardware? General googling usually leads to Amazon, Ebay, or various old specialty sites that may or may not work when you try to order something.
Where do you fine people buy your retro hardware? I'd be glad to know.
