Looks like he hasn't left that room since the turn of the century. The sad thing is looks like he's in his mid to late 30's too if not early 40's.

Find another hobby besides gaming, find a woman, or at least get some damn sun holy crap. Dude looks like Ted Kaczynski


This makes me want to support LRGs more. Typing in his address? This guy has never tried to get a rare item before apparently.... need to send him a copy of the 'how to get amiibo' guide from 2014.

i just got this email from amazon. is there anything i can do to get my snes classic from the UK.

Unfortunately, due to delivery restrictions on such items, we won’t be able to send you B071G84PFQ Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System from your order.This is because this item contains flammable, pressurised, corrosive, environmentally hazardous or otherwise harmful substances classified as dangerous goods under the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Air.

Although the amount of these substances in these products is usually quite limited, these products need to be transported in a certain way to ensure that they are handled with care and are therefore assigned to a specialist carrier. Unfortunately this means that we can’t dispatch it to any destination outside of mainland UK, PO Box addresses, or pickup locations.


Please update your address for this order by selecting "Order Details" when you click on the following link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/yourorders

If you don't update the delivery address for this order within 5 days, it will be automatically cancelled and you won't be charged.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience caused and hope to see you again soon.

I read a similar story on reddit/r/minisnes Hopefully this isn't a replay of the Walmart disaster where they trickle cancellations out then cancel them all a couple days later.

they already got 100K from winning a tv show http://abc.go.com/sh...episode-5-recap

also those guys reviewed the emulator part of it, they didn't mess with ANY of the outlandish other features they say they will have.
I don't think i can even list how many things are wrong with that one statement alone.

100 dollar Windows 10 gaming machine? what part of this sounds legit to you?


Oh, I agree that I don't see all those features happening. For my part, I am just hoping for a faster retropi, possibly with steam in-house streaming (ala steam box). I read that windows 10 is available at a ridiculously cheap license for the mini-pcs, but haven't looked into its actual license cost in that scenario.

The low price does concern me as I've priced out low-end Nuc style pcs to use in my bartop arcade and they all end up being about 160ish. I'd be fine with an upgrade to the eventual raspberry pi 4, but reports are that won't be released until at least 2019.

that thing is the biggest scam ever. its their 2nd try kickstarting it, first time the units were supposed to cost 300 each, how are they magically 200 dollars less now? a lot of their features are impossible/illegal/lies

this is going to be the next Kickstarter scandal lol.


I hope you're not correct. I've been lucky with kickstarter so far (except spaceventure... that $20 is long gone) and between shipwreck, rgt, and eta prime all saying it works as advertised I was willing to gamble on it, but there is no guarantee they don't drop the CPU specs on the final product making it no better than a raspberry pi. I would hope their company name is more valuable than a scam to make $30,000 though, especially as they have been in business selling arcade cabinets for many years now. I am less concerned about them being a scam and more worried that Nintendo and co. Cease and desist them into oblivion before the product is delivered.

Is this even legal? Seems super sketch in so many different aspects.


Not sure honestly. They say that lawyers have reviewed it and such but I would not want to be a producer/investor in it. That said, I look forward to playing with one. :)
