There’s an Unreal Tournament demake for Atari 2600 you can play in your browser

Unreal Tournament, as in the 1995 multiplayer first-person-shooter, has been demade for a new platform—the Atari VCS, aka the Atari 2600, a 41-year-old console.

But the Raspberry Pi looks practically gargantuan next to the Pico PI225-GK, which I checked out at Zotac's booth at Computex 2018. This is actually the second generation of the mini PC, which is about the dimensions of a half dozen credit cards stacked together. But I was impressed by how much of a genuine PC the Pico is. Wi-Fi,
