Hey guys sorry for being Missing In Action for so long real life tends to get a strangle hold and it can be hard to get back in the swing of things. I am hoping to be bringing more content and some more fun stuff in the near future, finishing some of my earlier projects, and just generally being more active around here. Thanks for putting up with down time.

Gaming Gadget Reviews - NES to PC USB Adapter

Gadget: Nes to USB Adapter
Made by:
Cost: $19-$22

This my friends is probably one of the coolest gadgets I have ever had the pleasure of buying. If you have ever tried to play a vintage video game rom on your PC you know how tired your fingers can get pressing keys on the keyboard instead of holding an actual controller. Emulation is booming with the advent of retro gaming becoming popular and our friends over at have brought us a little bit of geek happiness.

What you get is a very simple little black NES controller port which runs through to a USB end that plugs nice and neat into your PC. The amazing thing about this is it has all the drivers buildt in so its usable with Windows, Mac, and Linux. Once plugged in it is automatically read as an additional joystick and all that's left is to plug in your favorite NES controller and your ready to rock. My only complaint and its a very minor one with this is that when you first place the controller into the adapter its kind of a rough fit and might take you a minute or two to get it nestled in where it belongs, but once you do prepare for hours of gaming as it was meant to be. did not stop at just the NES, they also created adapters for SNES, Sega, Atari, and a NES or SNES adapter for your Wii or Game Cube. With the feature of playing what are essentially roms on your Wii this small investment can go a long ways for bringing back the good ol days of gaming with your friends. I know ill be getting an additional SNES version for my PC in the near future.

Lastly on the PC side of things this controller works great with a little freeware program called joy2key which allows you to use any joystick you have for any application. Having tested this myself I found some arcade classics much more enjoyable while running M.A.M.E. using this setup to use a controller it would not have otherwise recognized. Think of the applications of an SNES controller being used for your WoW raids.

Overall definitely one of the best simple to use gadgets I have ever bought and I look forward to being a repeat customer.
