I love Centipede and this looks great but it's a little more than I would want to spend.

It would be something!  Better than just having the joypad to try to work with a paddle game.

A small rotating disc around the base of the thumbstick would be nice.
Not perfect but usable at least.

That is a good question.  It's almost as if they don't know that those games are not meant to be played with a paddle.

Looks OK but WHY do these people insist on including paddle-control games???

It looks really nice and the controllers are good.
But did Ghouls & Ghosts slow down that badly?

I have added Atari 2600/Megadrive/PC Engine and Gameboy Advance - all seem to work fine.
But...........since I hacked it I'm feeling more annoyed that I paid £70 for it.
I could've got a raspberry pi setup with a wireless controller for less.

You may all have read that it can now dual boot the NES Classic as well so you can choose between SuperNES or NES and play both systems. I happened to pick one up on launch day. I was coincidentally walking in a mall before opening and I saw two people standing outside of a GameStop, not thinking anything of it I walked by. A couple minutes later it occurred to me that it was launch day and they were probably in line for the system. I went back and got in line and there was a sign posted outside saying they had 10 in stock for walk-in purchase. I was #4 in line so I figured I would pick one up. I think the system is great, the controllers are right on and a good value for the cost. The games run so well, and the rewind and save point feature adds a lot of enjoyment to play through games that you've probably played before in the past and now just want the enjoyment of playing as much as the challenge.
