Analogue and 8Bitdo Give NES the Bluetooth I Never Knew It Needed

I Beat Super Mario Bros. 2 over Bluetooth, and You Can, Too

The Xbox 360 improved the quality of my console life in two notable ways. Firstly, I absolutely love having all my console games loaded right on the system at any given time. Playing Adventures of Lolo but having to get up and walk over to the NES to switch it out for some Kickle Cubicle? […]
