It’s been almost a month since I’ve had my Ouya, the upstart open-source game console I backed on Kickstarter, and I’ve been wanting to share my thoughts about it–mainly how, despite being a little rough around the edges, it’s well worth its $99 pricetag and why it’s amazing for emulators.

Concurrently, my pal Mark Stevens “soft launched” a new gaming blog called RunJumpFire for which I’m a contributing editor and author, so I took the opportunity to review Ouya for my inaugural post. As someone who plays a lot of games across many different platforms, I wrote my review from the perspective of trying to figure out how Ouya fits into my already crowded gaming life. If you’re curious, head on over there and check it out to find out why I love this thing.

Also, here are some Ouya “unboxing” shots, if you’re into that sort of thing. From what I understand, this is like porn to gadget geeks.
