This is After Burner Climax, a PlayStation 3 game, running on a PC courtesy of the RPCS3 emulator. And running pretty damn well, all things considered.
When a company like Sony or Nintendo or Microsoft designs a console (or handheld), they have a few things to worry about, like keeping prices as low as possible while ensuring everything still works. But what if that wasn’t an obstacle for games hardware? What if they could be as beautiful as any other piece of…
This is a video of 2006’s Sonic the Hedgehog for Xbox 360. Running on a PC. Well, “running”.
Before the world knew him as Mario, Nintendo's iconic plumber had a simpler name: Jumpman. That name makes sense, when you think about it: Mario is defined by his ability to jump. But lately, I've become fascinated by the people who play—and beat—Super Mario 64 without jumping a single time.
Do you remember the first computer game you played? What about the first program you downloaded? Unless you've just emerged Brendan-Fraser-in-Encino Man-style from the earth, wholly unaware of computers (in which case, I have several questions for you), your early digital distractions are probably years, if not…

You might think emulators only exist for retro consoles, and for the most part that's true, but we might some day be seeing PS4 and Xbox One games - regardless of the legality of the move - on a PC near you.
Unlike, say, Android, Apple is pretty strict in how it polices its online store, outlawing any app that lets people play emulated (read: usually illegal copies of old games) titles on their iOS device. But it can do little to stop this one.
As soon as the Oculus Rift came out, you knew it was going to happen. This guy (Cymatic Bruce) is running a Virtual Boy emulator on the headset, playing Insane Mouse Mansion.
Yesterday on the unofficial Ouya console forums, forum administrator Ed Krassenstein announced that several emulators will officially be available on or near the launch (March 28) of the Android-based console. The additions of said emulators to the upcoming console have been in discussion since as early as July of…
We've all used an emulator at one stage in our lives. Whether to replay some classic old arcade games or play an obscure console title you missed first time around, they're a dime a dozen.
You finally have a purpose for all those oscilloscopes that have surely piled up in your basement, now that one man has hacked together a way to play your original Game Boy games using its monochromatic powers of display.
