I was expecting the worst with the controller after reading everyone's reactions on here, but I'm actually pleasantly surprised by it so far. Honestly surprised with how solid an experience everything with the console has been so far. Aside from the tight grip in the Genesis slot. That thing is no joke.

Haven't spent a ton of time with it yet, but already feel like this was $99 very well spent. Still can't believe it's actually here. Firmware update and cheat code downloads next on the list...

I had to go on urban dictionary to see what shade meant.

Removed the 32x again, left the Sega CD intact, and got the Power Base Mini to boot up master system games without any issues. No clue what was different this time, but nice to get some Hang On and Choplifter time in!

...and no sooner do I say that, that I find a PDF users guide online for the power base mini that clearly states it won't work with a 32x because it prevents the Master System Mode when attached. Bummer, doesn't explain why it did the same when I detached the 32x though, unless it somehow doesn't play well with the Sega CD attached too.

All of this could be avoided if Hyperkin would just release the Retron 5 already! They did at least respond to someone on twitter asking for a release date since its officially Q2 now.

"soon, friend."
