Flash Carts, Everdrives & Nintendo NES Bootlegs (The Future of Collecting!) – Cygnus Destroyer

Subscribe for great justice! ► http://bit.ly/LJNDefender

Retro game collecting just isn’t fun anymore. Local thrift store & flea market finds are becoming few & far between and the prices are raising through the roof on eBay & other online re-sellers. Fortunately, there are alternatives available that allow fans of the NES & other classic Nintendo & Sega cartridge based consoles to play rarities like Little Samson & Wild Guns on the legit hardware without breaking the bank. In this Cygnus Destroyer special, we’re going to take a closer look at the wonderful world of bootleg compilations & Everdrive flash carts. Thanks for watching:)

WARNING: Since the production of this video, I’ve seen an article about how the pirate multi-carts and some of the Everdrives could potentially be harmful to your systems. For those who are curious, here’s a link to that article: http://db-electronics.ca/2017/07/05/the-dangers-of-3-3v-flash-in-retro-consoles/

As a counterpoint, Krikzz, the creator of the Everdrive, addressed this issue on his forum and said that he’s never had any issues with his products in over seven years of heavy use: http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=6614.msg51195#msg51195

Long story short, I’ve personally had no issues with my Everdrives, so you should be fine, too, but I’d recommend staying away from the CoolBoy carts & the Super 150 in 1 to be safe. Anyway, I’m rambling…if this is your first experience with my channel, you should check out my three shows, Cygnus Destroyer, The LJN Defender, and Innocent Until Proven Guilty.

Have a retro title that you’d like to see me review or a “bad” game that you’d want to see me give a fair trial on Innocent Until Proven Guilty? Feel free to suggest one in the comments.

Also, if you want to know what video games I own, I keep track of most of my collection on Nintendo Age. Feel free to consult it when making a request:
