I'm Phil and Im trying to get into this whole RPI thing, a bit later than I should have it seems ?

Im a gamer and a dad and Im trying to get my son into the same things I grew up with, so far he loves what Virtualman007's 128gb build has to offer.

Ill be looking into making a build for a 'front room build' with Kodi/amazon/iplayer/etc and consoles that I can see myself and wife and son mainly using such as  snes/n64,dreamcast/ps1 but without older systems such as spectrum/c64/amiga stuff on it as I dont think they will use them (I will keep a build for myself in my games with those on for nostalgia purposes of course).

So I just wanted to say hi and thanks for the source if information, some of the builds on here are crazy! Ill deffinitely look into making my own, and I guess this is the place to look, but im no where near there yet ?

Catch you soon!

Hi Phil

Welcome to Arcade Punks, there is never a right time for retro gaming, so your all good to go ?

My personal advice is if you are going to go wiht N64/DREAMCAST I would go for something a bit stronger than a Pi, I would go with a PC, or at a push the Odroid, although there are not many pre-made images for the Odroid yet

Holler if you need some help ?
