    Anthony, you are now my favourite tech guy. I still love Linus... But... Ummm... Sorry Linus, you're now my number 2. This is my second video seeing Anthony and I just can't get enough of him. You both actually made a great team on this video.

    The tactile feeling of this handheld is irrelevant because you can use parts that you like. So the only reason it may feel foreign or strange is if you use the wrong parts. YOU are building this console. It's a work in progress that you can keep upgrading and changing as you like.

    Sean O'Farrell25 days ago

    Good news is that Nintendo's agreement doesn't really factor in when it comes to the legality of this stuff. Ripping and burning copies of physical for personal use is a guaranteed consumer right in many countries, and no EULA can limit that. Americans might have issues since they have laws against bypassing DRM for this kind of use, even if the use itself isn't illegal.
