    N64 emulation has always been kind of sketchy. Even on a good PC, it still isn't perfect, some games still artifact badly.

    Ps1 emulation is something i'd love to see on the Wii U. I absolutely think it has the power to do it, but I don't see that anyone will make a proper emulator for Wii U since the Wii's homebrew is so mature.

    Nope, not enough ponies under the hood for good ps1 emulation, unfortunately

    I don't know about that. IT was alright on the wii, slowdowns galore but it was playable.

    There was a time I would've said rawksd for Wii (import tracks from other guitar hero or Rick band games into Rick band 2... One version only loaded from sd and another working beta had a date restriction) but seeing how regular sd cards can now hold more than ten times the size, it doesn't matter much.

    I go with fat 32 support for wiiu. Mocha came close but the implementation is just too buggy. Runner-up is gamepad support for wii and GameCube games on wiiu (though I'm not sure if this ever was a full project rather than people tinkering with it).

    dunno if is been done before but a Mega man battle network game with online mode. :)

    Either that or Streets of Rage Remake and Mega man universe. (Not really a homebrew project but one of many cancelled mega man games)

    In that bara manga ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Wire3D, it had a lot of potential for the Wii, especially since it worked with Unity, but it was too good to be true (hopefully something like that comes out for the Wii U/3DS/Switch)

    People dedicated enough to fix the common problems with PS1 and N64 emulation in very specific games, like Goldeneye for example... Most emulators don't even try drawing the sky, they just make it solid red or black. Like wow... Lazy much? Or textures that are 17 feet in front of you will somehow cover your guns and hands. The hell kind of fuckery is that?

    This looks epic. I don't suppose there's any way to play it other than waiting for an invite to the developer's house?
