Portable N64

Moore's law makes sure that computing power grows exponentially so that the strength of the cutting edge game consoles of the 1990s like the Nintendo 64 is eclipsed by today's handhelds. That doesn't mean that the games from that era shouldn't still be enjoyed, and what better way to do so than modded an N64 that fits in the palm of your hand. If it has a nifty blue casing and can fit any cartridge, all the better.

My dreams have come true! A user called "Biggi" from Modded By Bacteria forums put this gem together and it seems to work perfectly. I was amazed to learn that this handheld N64 was Biggi's first modding project, it looks like it was created by a master.

Also, props for using Goldeneye as your demo. I freaking loved that game. Now I have to fire up the remake when I get home now. Thanks, Biggi.
