alright so this is a review of the Retron 3 by hi perkin I know there are a lot of reviews out there for the hyper can three but mine's going to be a little bit different mine is going to be done with smooth jazz this next test is very dangerous if you help you remain tranquil in the face of almost certain death smooth jazz would be deployed even three alright so now that we got the
00:32
jazz going let's talk about what you get in the package so essentially you get two wireless controllers they look similar to the Sega Genesis controllers with the six buttons instead of the three which is what I have I don't actually have a 6 button Genesis controller they are infrared so they're not too responsive but right now there's
01:06
the only thing I have four Super NES until my Super NES controllers come in and they'll work fine for that the only the big issue is this right here as you can see this is the button mapping and a is B & B is a and I mean so it gets kind of confusing but for the nes is a little bit easier to deal with but I mean Genesis and SNES it gets kind of confusing because I think x and y is
01:36
switched around the only thing that's the same for the Genesis is Z and see so I mean that that has to be frustrating i've never played it with those two system than the NASA and the Genesis because I have those controllers so I don't have to use these they do take to triple-a batteries so I mean it's kind of worth it they're kind of need to have but you don't have to use them all right so now let's focus on the console itself as you can see
02:08
it has three spots here the SNES the Genesis and the NES and then you to change them you have three lights here so you know what's on but you have the styler so you turn it to any s if you want to play this and then Genesis and then SNES now on the earlier models there was a fourth click but on this newer model that I just got it does not have that fourth click over so they did
02:40
fix that the power button is really smooth and the reset button has a nice click to it as well as you can see on the front here you have the receiver for the on their real we have the receiver for the wireless controllers along with the SNES slots as well on this side we have the NES controllers I will tell you it's a tight fit so that's nice and
03:12
won't be falling out but with the Sega Genesis controllers it's kind of loose you don't know that they're if they're in tight or not or in at all but they are so it's really not that big of a deal as long as they work and they do now with the games you can play games like this like sonic and knuckles all right it's kind of further for the
03:47
genesis part and the nes part the games are just really really hard to get in and out they won't be flopping around or anything so I mean that's nice but um you're going to hear like a little crunching sound which is just the sensors the connectors picking it up and so I guess that's how you know what's in but that it kind of does bother me because I feel like it's going to
04:18
scratch the brass that's on the inside of the games but I don't think it'll be that big of a deal so like with Sonic and Knuckles it has this piece right here at the top so you can play sonic 3 & knuckles that attachment does work I tested it out it has no problem reading it so if you have games like this don't worry it'll work fine also if you have
04:50
games like duck hunt the gun does work for that so you won't have to worry about that either so let's look at the back here the console pretty basic the one big thing that separates it from others along with allowing you to use the original controllers most other clone consoles don't allow you to do that is the s-video along with the
05:24
composite the s-video though is only for Sega Genesis and SNES nes does not pick up on that also you can see the switch right here I don't know the camera will focus you can kind of see oh and a Jake this is for the different types of games so you can play Japanese games on this console as well which is another great feature a lot of
05:58
people complain about different sounds and the color being a little bit off the only issue that I had so far is with altered beast there was this blue line like right here the whole time I was playing the game and I think it it's probably the game because it has kind of a little broken its rattles and makes noise and it's not the best it's not in
06:28
the best condition either so I think it was the game's fault because I did play like i said this game and that issue didn't come up so I wouldn't worry too much about that now I'm going to show you how to properly maintain your games I've done a lot of research on this because I had an original NES and I kept
07:00
on thinking it can't be the console I mean the consoles in good shape but I did clean the games and you know it really didn't help and it did end up being the console that's why I got this but still even with this when I first put them in the it didn't want to read the NES games that well as well so I've done a lot of research on this I looked up how to do it and I'm I don't have to
07:32
say the brasso technique either opening it and if you can open your game because some games have a they don't have regular flat head screws in the back they have a different type of style and you better you have to spend money on a kid to even get the part I mean it's a pain the butt so you can just take a q-tip and put a little bit of brasso on it and clean it that way and I will tell you after I did
08:03
that my rad racer that I got just didn't play at all I mean it it just wouldn't it wouldn't play the sound if it showed the video I mean it just wouldn't do anything so after I cleaned it with the brass Oh though first time in worked like a charm so I'm going to show you how to do that and hopefully you can use it on your games and it'll turn out real
08:34
well now there's another technique that I that I read about that a lot of people are against but I mean you you can't fight the results on that and if you use scotch brite pad not the heavy duty ones get the you know the lightest you can get in just a little bit of water you can you rub it on the brass and that gunk comes right off now the reason that it works is because you're not going to
09:05
be doing it more than once because you're not going to have to because it does it can't eventually take off the brass but if you only do it one time you won't have to do it for the rest of your life time because it just it just won't happen again as long as you keep your games in the right type of environment but i'm going to say go with the brass oh it's cheaper and it's safe because it is designed to clean brass so now i'm
09:38
going to switch over to a different style camera so we can better see this and i'll teach you how to clean your nes games SNES games as well are good for it and but i'm not sure if the genesis games are but i will look that up and when I do the cleaning thing I may even clean a sega genesis game because i have one that doesn't want to work so alright alright so i did a
10:08
little research and I found that you can use the same technique that I use for the NES for the sega genesis game so this game crackshot has been giving me a lot of problems it'll play but then eventually it'll just be like and then not work and now um I looked inside here and you probably can't see us i'm not going to show you there is quite a bit of dirt in there because it was a game that was used at a video rental store so
10:41
what you're going to need is some brass oh you can buy it at any hardware store i think they sell it at kmart as well walmart more than likely and target but if you for some reason can't find it that's okay you can use rubbing alcohol as well I wouldn't go anything past seventy percent just for precautionary reasons so what you're going to do is you're going to take q-tips since you can't open the Sega Genesis games that
11:12
easily because of these little bolts right here you're just going to use a q-tip with the NES games some of them you can't open and I would recommend that you do that way you can get everything and see it real well and it'll be easier to clean so what you do is you just open up the brass Oh kind of squeeze it so it's coming out of the top just kind of roll the q-tip like that you don't need too much but if you get
11:43
too much that's fine and then you're just going to take it like this kind of rub it this kind of roll it and what this bra so does this is just going to get the little grime off as you can see if you can see that it's kind of hard for me to do this it's all black and Dunkey I'm going to do this on both
12:13
sides this just keep on going normally what I do is after it starts to get too bad so I'll turn it over and I'll still do that same side because you never know what you might have missed and like I said you can't have too much and you can rub this thing all day and it'll still produce black or green gunk but that's fine you just need to get it sort of
12:51
good now if you have a game though that after you clean it still doesn't work try to get a light in there and see because there may just be like one or two contacts that are a little bit worse than the other ones were and that's what's causing the problem I know with Super Mario too that's the problem that I have and I found like one or two contacts that were a little bit worse
13:22
than the other put a little bit of brass so on not too much like I said just for that one contact and just focused in on it it's a little bit easier to do on those but you can kind of do it on these sega genesis games as well it's not too hard to do and it's not going to damage it like I said you can rub it all day and you're still going to get nasty stuff like this mine were
13:58
probably worse than what they should be because they were kept in a basement and didn't have cases but surprisingly this one did have a case and it's still pretty bad probably from its days has a video rental game so I can do a lot of damage to these games they get played more than usual so after you do that and
14:28
you deal with a bra so just take a plain one and just rub it over it again because that you are going to have excess brasso sitting on top and you don't want that getting in your console too much because well it's not brass so so and it can it does dry up and get all nasty and it can cause problems if it does that so you just swipe it until
15:04
it's all gone see it on the edges they're just you know get it out you want to do this until it you don't see any green coming off or there's not too much so that's good enough I recommend that you let this sit for a little bit if you don't they could damage your system so you just let it sit for a little bit not too long because I mean you did wipe it if you did wipe it down and didn't let it sit
15:41
it should be okay but it should work like I said I cleaned nes games that just didn't work at all and one cleaning and sorry the brass Oh smells is bothering me and it worked just fine first time in I mean nes games never worked the first time you put them into the console I mean that's just a fact so the technique that I just showed you you
16:15
can do the same thing with rubbing alcohol but it doesn't work as well it will get the top layer of gunk off and that does help so I mean that's that's a start but the brass oh isn't isn't that much it's about three bucks and you can get a lot of use out of it just like this this is like two bucks and you can get a lot of use out of this as well you
16:47
only use it for cleaning your games I wouldn't okay whoa my camera ran out of memory so that's how that happens but yeah basically that's it the console the Retron three I recommend it highly recommend it it's great there are a few games that do not work but those are few and far between I know that Virtua racer for the Sega Genesis
17:17
not work I want to say street fighter 2 alpha doesn't work I don't know that like I said they have updated the console just a little bit so I don't know if they fix those issues on these newer models so if you're worried about a game locum forums and whatnot and see what games work and do not work but the majority of the games do work pretty much every game it's just like 10 at
17:52
most for each console but all the popular games work so I wouldn't worry too much about it if you're on the fence get it because it's not that big of an issue because you are going to be able to play in most the time but the good thing about it is is that it does have the original controllers that you can use so that capability just blows
18:23
everything else out in the water because there's nothing like using the original controllers and accessories with the game's most things like the FC twin you have to use their controller and so but awkward sometimes and doesn't respond very well and you can't use accessories but with the Retron three you can so it's a by definitely use this technique with the brass o to clean your games got
18:57
to take care of them because they don't last forever but anything you can do to extend the life of these games is important because these are the foundations for the games we have today and we really need to keep a hold of these these are special I'm not this game I don't care but this came but i'm saying you know like the main titles are really important to keep
19:27
an eye on and keep in good condition except for et everybody knows that ET can and Fester's quest that one too i'm sure there's a couple other ones that i can think of but yeah yeah so that's it i'm simon for wolves simon craft and this is a review of the Retron 3 which is the beginning of this video and then
20:00
how to properly clean your old video game consoles also side note last thing you can use both the rubbing alcohol and the brass o to clean the contacts on the nes the original nes you take the alcohol and you scrub it on the 17 pin
20:30
connector both sides with a toothbrush and then the part that the one side slides into the chip you use the brass oh and apparently that works really well it didn't work for mine because there was other issues with it not just that the 17 pin connector was actually in really great shape i'm pretty sure it was a replacement but yeah that technique does work sometimes with connectors that aren't that bad of shape
21:02
but still need a little bit of help so yeah that's it for this video look forward to our review of Skyward Sword should be coming out whenever I have time and my friend cody has time to do it it's just really busy right now but we may be able to get something out there holiday season and look forward to more reviews like this and also now sorry old
