Let's Spend an Afternoon With the NES Classic Edition [Archived]

Our mini-NES has arrived, and Jeremy will be streaming it for a few hours beginning at 1:30 ET (4:30 PT).

The NES Classic Edition console — "Mini NES" if you're nasty — has arrived at long last! Well, almost. You won't find it in stores until next Friday... but we have an early review unit here at USgamer.

Naturally, there's nothing to be done for it but stream games for the afternoon. And that's precisely what I aim to do, as I take the mini-console to the mats for our full review.

The Mini NES (that's right: I'm nasty) comes with one controller and 30 games, and I will play as many of these games as people in the stream chat demand. I can only play the games on the system itself, obviously! I'm not a miracle worker! But please join the stream over the next few hours and toss any questions or requests you may have my way. I'll do my darnedest to oblige.

If you want to get an early start on the fun, you can check out this quick and dirty unboxing video:
