Just got me an Odroidgo yesterday. Made me realize that there has never been a better time for playing + developing 8-bit games:

- A massive catalogue of ROMs to play + nintendo looking the other way
- Several competing retro gaming handhelds (Bittboy, Odroid-go, LDK gamer, etc)
- Even more ROM emulators to choose from
- Well documented specs on gameboy hardware + software
- An active homebrew community for these older platforms
- New open-source hackable consoles like the Arduboy
- Dev tools like GBDK that can actually run on modern hardware

Hell of a hole to fall into these past few days. Hope I didn't hit my head too hard ;)
