    I was curious if anyone was using the PocketGo.
    I don't have a PocketGo, but I am waiting in the mail for a PowKiddy RGB10. The Retroid Pocket 2 seems rather popular, BTW. But it runs Android and I prefer how ODroid Go Advance clones like the RGB10 use emulation-focused Linux distributions. Plus, the OGA clones are probably more powerful anyways, and I don't need the Retroid's multiplayer features since I'm not gonna know anyone with their own device.

    You'll have to let me know how the PowKiddy RGB10 is. I ended up buying two Pocket Go V2 and one of them had an issue with the SD card slot, so I had to return it. What sucks is that it takes almost 4-6 weeks to get the device since its literally shipped from China.

    As for multiplayer, I've actually never played multiplayer on these retro devices. I really don't have the desire for it either.
