New Year 2020 Retro Resolutions

Another year, another Retro Resolution thread.

My resolutions:

Go full FPGA full platforms supported (either Analogue or MISTER)
Explore Gameboy/GBC libraries
Continue to support quality retro collections (M2, etc)

What are yours?


I want to beat a few JRPGs. I always quit. But some FF games, Dragon Quest and maybe Earthbound Beginnings.

Put out more gaming Youtube vids than 2019(which that year had the lowest amount of vids I put out since I started in 2014) along with putting the vids on Youtube alternatives.

Finish making a game and ship it.


I have a thread where I’m tracking the games I’ve beaten this year. Ya’ll can join :sonic:

Otherwise, I plan on bringing sanity to my arcade setup and diving into mister.

Tell us more

!!! I would definitely play a game you make.


Re-buy a lot of the stuff I sold to buy a house :joy:


I’m keeping things simple this year.

  1. Work as much as I can on Ketsui
  2. Organize and finish the Shmup Station
  3. Purchase a FM Towns or X68k
  4. Buy more shmups (especially Cave)
  5. Buy a RAM expansion for my Mister.

I’m interested in the PS5 and Xbox Series X but probably won’t buy either for a couple years.

  • Sell more games and the extra consoles I have
  • Get my setup finished (moved in July and have barely spent anytime on it)
  • Get my Mister up and running
  • maybe buy a Switch

I’ve got a few things and since I prodded @entremet to create a thread I need to chime in…

  • Stream retro on Twitch regularly with my newly purchased Elgato HD60 S and the RetroTINK-2X. Sega Genesis mostly but also Neo Geo games.
  • Finally add Thunder Force V for Saturn to my collection. It’s one of the few games I don’t own that still haunts me.
  • Go back to Galloping Ghost Arcade in Chicago for more than just an evening and visit their pinball location too.
  • Check out the Retro scene in Charleston, SC when I go to visit my son there sometime this year.
  • Play a ton of TurboGrafx-16 when the Mini launches in March.
  • Play the hell out of all the stuff I already own instead of adding to the pile every week! This should be relatively easy when I get things set up for streaming.

Super niche, perhaps, but I’m making a Hanafuda (Japanese flower cards) game for the Playdate console! Still a ways to go but I’m building it in such a way that I can extend it easily and port it to pretty much any platform. Would love to have it on Switch. First thing first, though!

I don’t usually talk about things before I have something to show, so forget I’ve said any of this! :joy:

Really hope to grab a Playdate system, myself and it doesn’t sell out. I am on the notification list.

I forgot about the polymega. I have interest in that platform, especially as legacy hardware starts breaking down, especially disc based stuff.

Nice, hope you do it.

That’s super cool. I’m interested in hanafuda but it has always overwhelmed me whenever I’ve sat down to play.


This year I plan to focus on collecting PCBs and NeoGeo AES/MVS/Pocket Stuff. Maybe get another candy cab and a super gun.
