Have had my GPD X D GamePad for a few weeks now and run RetroArch on it.  So far and very happy that I bought it.  Being able to play the old games away from the TV is pretty cool.  It will come in handy this winter.  Because more than likely we will loose the power a few times.  It runs Android OS so you can all so get stuff off the Google Play store.  Haven’t tried that yet.  But thinking about get Minecraft PE (Pocket Edition).  Enjoy this game so be able to play on the good would be nice.   If you are looking to get one Gear Best is were I got mine.  They have put in on a Flash Sale many times.  So if see it a full price. Check back a different day.  The is the model I got > here.

The GPD X D GamePad I ordered GearBest came in the mail yesterday (Aug 28, 2017).  I must say that was super fast shipping.  It shipped from China on August 13th.  Was thinking it wouldn’t be here until some time in September.  It comes with some preinstalled games and apps.  Some of which are kind sketchy.  So will be deleting those.   There are some other apps I would never use so deleted them.  There are some emulators built in.  Being an Android device you download others.

Went on the Play store and downloaded RetroArch.  Have watched a few videos on this in the past.  It is pretty good and can run on just about every device going.  The first game I tested out of Crash Bandicoot 2.  Once I got the all the files in place.  The game run and looked great.  Now to test out others.   So will be back in an impressions post later on. Below are some pictures.

A few posts back talked about the GPD X D GamePad and how GearBest.com has an awesome deal (flash sale).  I couldn’t past the the deal up.  They were asking $181.11 Canadian.  Got and email saying it has shipped.  It said it could take 15 to 25 days to get here.  Thinking it will the the longer date.  Since it is coming from half way around the world.  So should have it my hands some time in September?.  When I do get it.  Will be back with another post and pictures.
