Master Chief joins the Atari age in Halo 2600

As I've probably said before, demakes are a pretty cool thing. The idea of playing Halo on an Atari 2600 won't cause anybody to cancel their pre-order of Reach but it might give you a few minutes of amusement. Halo ...

Dig these miniature cocktail-style MAME cabinets

Growing up playing arcade machines every opportunity I could find, there were two types of machine that I've always wanted. The first is a Neo-Geo cabinet, which has been fulfilled. Which means that I now must work on convinc...

Awesome arcade made of Legos is nerdtastic

I like Legos well enough. I also obviously like videogames. As well, it has been proven that, like peanut butter and chocolate, Legos and videogames have gone well least in the digital realm. Not so much has bee...

PlayStation emulator running smoothly on HTC HD2 phone

HTC's new HD2 phone is a beauty...except for that whole Windows OS crap. It's a processing beast, though, and that makes it a prime candidate for emulation. PlayStation emulation, anyone? That's the dream. A portable playing...

Nintendo 64 emulator on iPhone looks great

There's not much to go off here, but from what we can see, this N64 emulator looks like it's shaping up to be solid. The strangely named 3G4 was developed by a 14-year-old, believe it or not. I don't know what mojo this teen...

HD Wii emulator is actually better than the Wii ... a bit photo
HD Wii emulator is actually better than the Wii ... a bit
by Jim Sterling

This really is quite remarkable. Not only has the Wii been successfully and competently emulated on the PC, but the graphics are being brought to us in shiny 720p HD. While it does have a few issues, the Dolphin emulator currently makes Wii games look far better than they do on the console itself, and gives you a taste of what could have been if Nintendo had bothered to make the Wii a bit more powerful.

Looking at the images, all I can think is that this is what the Wii really should have been from the start. Fair play to the Nintendo designers, they've managed to make some really good looking games despite the Wii's limitations, but it could have been so much more. If emulation is your thing, perhaps you can enjoy this for yourself, but those of us who aren't emulation geeky geeks who like to whine and moan that emulation isn't illegal and stomp their feet and have tantrums over it will have to simply dream of what might one day be real. 

There are loads of shots on NeoGAF. Check them out and imagine a world with Wii HD.

Worst emulation video ever: Dreamcast Shenmue running on PSP

Trying to keep the Dreamcast alive is a noble cause. And trying to make the beloved game system portable in some form is commendable. But seeing this example of not quite there is both sad and funny.I'm not picking on the em...

SNES emulator for iPhone looks promising

A few months back we came across a PlayStation emulator for the iPhone. It was a pretty nifty proof of concept, but as an actual gaming solution it looked to be pretty weak. There are too many buttons on the PlayStation cont...
