    Interesting.

    I had seen many people asking for a more legit way to play older games but did not expect much to come from it.

    I will have to keep an eye on this.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Emulator is called MESS. No kidding, lol.

    Maybe if it was named something else, it would work.

    Wonder how this could play out for other media, or is this "strictly" intended for digital stuff only?

    It's like that for added authenticity.

    Remember the 90s? The 90s were so much better.

    Only 90s kids will get this.
