    due to space problem and the frequent of moving out from one house to another, I have embraced the digital download for my gaming life.

    The image seems broken in the OP, but it loads fine on the front page.

    Nothing beats gaming on original hardware.
    Emulation is fun but it'll never beat the true experience.

    Maybe her name is Mariko and she can't run homebrew. :ninja:

    Old But Gold, huh? This was an interesting comic. I like it! Made me think about stuff.

    Emulation is a lot more convenient. It may enhance the experience with increased resolution, savestates, romhacks and what not. It takes up less space in your room.

    But that feeling of playing on real hardware. Probably a combination of nostalgia, the proper controller and just seeing the games displayed the way the devs envisioned them, it's wonderful. No emulator can fully replace that.

    Hey, that logo! I remember using Daedalus to play Mario 64 on my PSP, haha. The PSP was my first emulation machine. What a joy. I used it more for emulators than actual PSP games.

    It's weird, I rarely play my old consoles nowadays because I'm afraid of wearing them out and one day being unable to replace them. Hmm, nothing lasts forever.

    I guess it doesn't really matter how we enjoy the games, the good thing is we keep enjoying them. ;)

    Edit:
    What kind of person would want Tingle in their room? Nonono.

    Edit2:
    In some cases savestates ruin the experience for me. I cheat myself by using them, it deprives me of any feeling of accomplishment.

    I'm guessing I'm the only one having trouble getting the post to load. Tried on Firefox as well which has 0 history/data, and still no.

    Excuse me, why wouldn't you want a Gizmondo? I've been on the lookout for one of those for a while, as well as a Tapwave Zodiac. :P

    What's wrong with having a Gizmondo?
    I even have 2 of them (:

    The device itself has a very nice homebrew/emulator support. There are also some nice games on it. The Gizmondo has a very great historical background.
    Besides, it's also a nice collectors item, since there isn't many of them sold.

    I'll take all of the above for more money than anyone should rightfully spend on gaming, Alex.
