+1 on this most reviews I read were negative as the reviewer didn't want to put ANY effort in when something didn't work out of the box.
Yeah Ashens is more about providing entertainment than facts.I was thinking of ashens, but after that post I went to watch his Pandora review. Within 3 minutes I already had a handful of bad info. Didn't feel like watching the whole thing again.
How do you mean, bad info? I'm not sure he got the GPU frequency right, but who really cares? It's clearly a fanboyish review, or perhaps he was lucky and got a unit with decent nubs, but it impressed me how much the old Pandora was able to run that early on. I'd forgotten that all those emulators were usable that quickly (he skips over some games on some systems that were problematic to get running).I was thinking of ashens, but after that post I went to watch his Pandora review.

Basically, he said it was entirely designed and made in the UK, including the case. I don't remember exactly what was said, but most of it related to that was wrong, what I call bad info, and not in the "I am trying to be funny" way. It doesn't matter much, but a lot has changed since then, and that bad info could be confusing for those that don't know the full story of the issues with the Pandora and such. Those people might point at the Pyra and ED and say "why trust him/them to do it right now?" when it was ED that kept the Pandora alive and tried to get the community through those times, and to fix some of the things that were done.How do you mean, bad info?
Yes, a lot has changed since then. At the time of the review, he wasn't entirely off though, basically by nothing more than understandable marketing spin, so I fail to see the problem. Seems to me that if you're so worried about "those people" getting confused then you should be very much in favour of Ashens getting a Pyra so he has a chance to set them right.It doesn't matter much, but a lot has changed since then
Not worried. Also, I was the one that mentioned sending him one. I just commented that I didn't remember the bad info before watching a few minutes of it again, and wasn't sure if I had forgotten more. I thought I remembered it being more thorough and detailed than many others (plus I think he can put a lot of eyes on the Pyra). Overall, I remember enjoying his video about the Pandora, which is why I thought of him when fair video reviews were mentioned.Seems to me that if you're so worried about "those people" getting confused then you should be very much in favour of Ashens getting a Pyra so he has a chance to set them right.
