If you like Final Fight and Streets of Rage (Bare Knuckle), you should get Streets of Rage 4. I played the version on on the Anbernic RG556 (and RG5405M, note9 + Gamesir X2 Pro) and it is a blast!

If you want to join the OpenShift Local (CRC) team as a QE engineer, please take a look at:


You do not need to be in Spain, although it would make it slightly easier. Also, it will be a QE position which will allow you to contribute directly to the codebase as you will be part of the engineering team.

@gbraad@mastodon.social avatar

the RP2040 has been a gamechanger

is such an awesome company...

too bad I never owned a MegaDrive in the 90's. Was too much into the , which I do not regret, as it created me the person I am (as a software engineer/engineering manager). Though, I would wonder what this would have been if I had a Sega instead... ;-)
