But what makes this project special is that this inexpensive board has hardware that's capable enough to be interesting. The result is a lo-fi game console built on an FPGA that gives you retro graphics without being, you know, too retro. Games actually look good."
The most difficult thing in the world is to know how to do a thing and to
watch someone else doing it wrong, without commenting.
