Nintendo has hit those nostalgic notes with its latest NES Classic console. It is basically the old console in a whole new packaging with built in classic 8-bit games. Gone are those days…. Okay let me stop myself right there. Revived are those days when you would not care about the graphics but play the game for solely the fun of it.

The NES Classic connects with an HDMI connection with your TV and has different visual modes. CRT filter: looks like an old TV, scan lines and all. 4:3: Gives you the original NES game look, with a slight horizontal stretch.
Pixel Perfect: Each pixel is a perfect square, so you see the games exactly as designed.. The console is powered by a micro USB cable. The controller is the same old classic.
