    Topic. Of course not the fancy (AAA) titles or even 3D games.

    There are a few small visual novels - with really really low hardware requirements- i would like to play on the couch, on a portable device, not on my Desktop PC. But purchasing a windows tablet just for this? :unsure: I got a DSi, PSP, 3DS, PS Vita and a cheap Leagoo M8 smartphone. Is there a way to play windows games on anyone of these devices? :grog:

    I remote in to my desktop from my phone, and/or tablet often. Setting up in bed and playing whatever from my PC is fun.

    There's a way to have games hardware rendered on your computer or desktop, and then stream the video and sound back to the 3DS (New series only). Your n3DS(XL) sends controller feedback to the desktop.
    If you want to play Crysis, Dark Souls, N64 games, Zelda - BotW [with Cemu emulator], or almost anything on the (new) 3DS, hell yah it can be done. *

    * Conditions apply in having a good router, computer rig, etc.

    For visual novels, look up LovePotions for the 3DS.

    If you have an Nvidia GPU, look into "Moonlight" If not, Remotr works well too.

    Got a Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti.

    So it all flow's over WLAN, right? Then it should only be a software-thing... will take a closer look at it tommorow. Sounds very intresting! Thanks a lot! :grog:

    NP. It's all pretty straight forward.
