    Yuck Tiger Handhelds are back in all their shittyness!

    https://gizmodo.com/hasbro-is-bringi...lcd-1841794271

    Hasbro brought them back including Sonic 3. $15 at Gamestop. But where the fuck is the R-Zone? Why deny to go blind in one eye?


    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    To be fair, it's not like they're setting unrealistic expectations or anything.

    The people selling them know they're shitty. The people buying them know they're shitty. We all know that they're shitty. Still, there is a certain novelty I guess. I wouldn't drop $15 on one, but it's a little neat seeing these things having a second release.
    Modded consoles:
    Master System (v7040) with s-video & direct AV out
    Model 1 with 10mhz overclock & halt switches
    Model 1 with 10mhz 68010
    Model 2 VA2.3 with unfiltered Mega Amp, & s-video
    Model 3 VA1 with compatibility fixes & s-video
    32X with s-video

    Or my collection of homebrew Genesis games, programs, and music on SEGA-16!

    Eh, The Oregon Trail handheld from a couple of years back I'd call a novelty. This is just like bringing back Bubsy. They may be remembered but not fondly.

    No. There is another. Let's hope they don't revive it too.

    Yeah, I knew someone with one of those. I could not see shit playing it. Some of the worst ghosting ever. Sound sucked. I know it's not Tiger Electronics but the other handheld that is a notorious piece of shit that was from a company called Tiger Telematics. Gizmondo. Is it me or are gaming systems branded after a cat just cursed? Lynx. Jaguar, Tiger anything?

    I think they are severely overestimating the appeal of these things.

    Yup. Seen some reviews on them. Functional but useless at their size.

    If Konami jumps in I would love to get Splinter Speaks again.

    Tiger handhelds were the bane of my childhood.

    I'd buy one of these just to f*cking smash it.

    Tiger handhelds remind me of going on vacation back in the day and playing one of these things and getting carsick.

    I want to mod the wooden one with a better screen and a mini raspberry pi, then put it on the shelf above my computer and have it nonstop play old shows like the honeymooners.

    I actually enjoyed Bubsy. Thought it was a creative concept for the time, I beat both games on the Genesis and the first one on the SNES. It was only when I got on the Internet and started reading forums I discovered everyone hated it! I also owned a couple Tiger handhelds back in the day but wouldn't buy another.
