November rolls in and October comes to an end. Witches rode their Broomsticks high and ghosts and goblins filled the sky. Thanks to everyone that participated in this year’s Ghosts of Portables Past Event. There was a lot of participation with participants from the Bitfix Gaming Community Forums. While no projects were completed and ghosts vanquished, it was a successful campaign with plenty of work accomplished for each of the contestants. To round out the Event, here is he summary roundup of progress from this year’s four Bitfix Gaming entries, and you can of course check out the progress of our own project, the 80′s NEStop entry here.

The project which we will be working on for this year’s Ghost of Portables Past is the 80′s NEStop, an NES portable in a laptop design, with the intent of having it look like the old Sony TV I used to play it on growing up.

This worklog will be abbreviated showing the highlights of this month’s progress; a more in-depth worklog (and the worklogs of other GHOSTS projects from other contestants) can be found on the Bitfix Forums.
