Emulation in the news today.

Currently Technology has risen to a level that enables us to return to the places we have been before. Retro gaming has become a new trend, a direct result of this is that emulators are becoming better and more prominent in today's society.

I would like to tell you a little bit about some of the top emulators for consoles today, and give you some links to these emulators as well as where to get some "shhhh" roms.

So what are emulators? Emulators are programs which allow your computer to pretend to be something else for instance a playstation, SNES, NES, Genesis, or even NeoGeo.


First we have the PlayStation emulator ePSXe if it sounds sexy, it's because it is sexy. Coming in both windows, and linux flavors, this emulator is by far the best looking emulator for all your PlayStation needs.

You can find this emulator at Emuparadise just check out their Emulators section. Many of the best plugins for this emulator can be found at Petes page. There is some setup involved with this emulator however once you have it properly configured it will give you PS2 quality gameplay with your old psx games, on your computer!


The next emulator I'd like to talk about is Zsnes. This emulator has a massive compatibility rating, many shaders(shaders help give your games a better look), and other features. You can also download this Emulator from Emuparadise in the emulators section.

 What about NES, Genesis, Gameboy, Arcades, Sega Saturn, Sega CD, and Nintendo 64?

You can find an emulator for each of these consoles it's all at Emuparadise. I just wanted to detail a couple of my favorites that I use regularly if you would like to get some games to play on these emulators drop by the "ROMs" section of Emuparadise.


As fun as all this sounds a word worth mentioning, you need to own the original of every game you download in order to be legally entitled to download that game. If you love emulation drop by and let Obama know what you think about the new DMCA peace treaty which would take away all our downloading rights.

Enjoy your retro gaming!
