Anyone remember the Sega Tower of Power? it's the amount of power bricks you would need to have when plugging in the Genesis, Sega CD and the 32x all at the same time. A bit of a fire hazard if you ask me.
Sega originally had planned to release a version of the Genesis with the 32x built into it called a Sega Neptune. It was even supposed to come in a nice looking case but because the 32x would of been in direct competition for their new console - the Sega Saturn - Sega of America were forced to forget the 32x and all derivatives and focus on the Saturn and its launch.
This is a whole other story in itself as it was an absolute mess.
Macho Nacho Productions has a run down of how to make a Sega Neptune using Genesis and 32x parts and you can now buy a case for the Neptune and shove everything in there.
Have to admit, it's a pretty nice looking little system.

I've been watching Invincible recently. It sparked my interest because of OmniMan more than anything else.
Amazon pulled an amazon and went kind of woke with it, with some flamboyantly gay stuff just for the sake of being gay and a couple race swaps but if you look past the changes the show isn't that bad. It's a basic teen drama / teen coming of age comic book with super heroes flying around as a norm in the background.
The art style is pretty basic and really bad in some places where they suddenly throw in low resolution cg characters near the end for some reason. Not sure why exactly, but have a feeling it ran out of money or something.
It starts with a after the credits thing with a lot of gore, was kind of surprising. There's gore throughout the rest of the season, but not like later on in season one. Just, wow. And almost as if they're doing just for the shock of it more than anything.
I recommend season one, but with the way it ends, I'm not sure I'll bother with season two. Again, OmniMan is the most interesting part of the show, Invincible and the teen drama stuff is just tiring. And it makes you wonder who the show is supposed to target. Adults, most adults anyway, won't care for it, but the fights are just so gore filled that it can't be for kids.

I'm almost tempted to get one of these. I already have a rom cart for the N64 but playing it on a modern screen is becoming a problem. These devices would solve this problem.
FPGA is basically fitting the entire mobo of the N64 on a single chip. Essentially turning these modern machines, which can output 4k resolution, connect to wifi and bluetooth, can play Nintendo 64 games natively meaning no emulation. It's actually really impressive.
