My X-ROM arrived over the weekend and it’s all kinds of wonderful.

I upgraded from a first-generation battery-sucking 128M parallel port linker that was a little taller than an actual GBA cartridge, and this new energy-efficient USB-enabled 512M wonder has changed my portable gaming life for the better.

PocketNES and Goomba were of course loaded on right away, but Mario vs Donkey Kong and Mario Pinball Land are tons of fun too.

They’re not going to be available forever, and at just $69 a pop the XROM is going to bring you hours and hours of fun.
