An emulator that converts NES games into full 3D is now on Steam

Emulators have finally arrived on Steam - and they've landed on Valve's storefront with a bang. This week, developers Geod Studios brought their long-running NES emulator 3DSen PC to Steam. The twist? This virtual console turns old-school pixel pushers - whether they're modern homebrew throwbacks or legitimately-acquired Marios - into adorable, fully-playable 3D dioramas.

Mario 64’s unofficial PC port is being buttstomped by Nintendo lawyers

Mariomaniacs recently completed the astonishing task of reverse-engineering Super Mario 64 and making an unofficial PC version. It doesn't need an emulator or anything, it's just Super Mario 64 running on PC. Nintendo are less than wholly impressed with this technical feat, sending in their lawyers to try to shut down downloads. A wholly unsurprising conclusion to a whole lot of work.

Rip and tear with Animal Crossing’s Isabelle in this Doom II mod

If you're anything like me, you're currently going through some intense Animal Crossing: New Horizons FOMO. These sort of lifestyle sims aren't for me, but I'll admit - watching my mutuals posting their island adventures non-stop has me a little jealous. Where's my Tanuki landlord? Why can't I have a best friend who is also a dog? For the Doom marine, the latter is only…

Feature: Doomed... to be best friends!

The Doom and Animal Crossing fandoms wish each other luck, are wholesome and lovely

We don't really get the chance to write about Animal Crossing here in the PC gaming wasteland, even though several members of the team are avowed fans of Nintendo's build a lovely village and make friends 'em up. Happily, the somewhat unlikely crossover between Animal Crossing's fans and those of gory demonslaying FPS Doom has given me a valid reason.Doom Eternal's release was delayed to…

Windows Solitaire, Mortal Kombat among the most recent inductees into the Video Game Hall Of Fame

Mind out if you run into Windows Solitaire or Mortal Kombat down the shops, ‘cos they’re famous now and I bet it’s gone right to their heads. Specifically, they’ve been inducted into the World Video Game Hall Of Fame, a list operated by The Strong, a New York based “museum of play.” I assume it was Alec’s fairly recent Have You Played? about the digital…

The Binding Of Isaac’s tribute to Satoru Iwata is sweet, for Isaac

Every year on December 6th, the birthday of former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata (who died in 2015), The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth pays tribute to him and the Nintendo games which inspired Isaac in a special daily challenge run. We get to play as a wee Iwata, clad in his smart suit and clutching the 'Gamekid' item, while loot pools are slanted towards many of…

Nintendo’s lawyers shut down tool used to make Pokémon fan games

We don't hear much Nintendo news round these PC parts, and when we do it's usually bad. The latest nintenews is that their lawyers have shut down Pokémon Essentials, a set of tools which have been instrumental in many unofficial fan-made Pokémon games on PC, as well as the Wiki containing information on how to use them. A video games company aggressively going after after…

When and where to watch the big E3 livestreams

Publishers are lining up to announce and show off their upcoming games at their big annual press conference-o-market-o-ramas, starting today. This is all livestreamed nowadays, and it's certainly more comfortable to be watching from home than the conference rooms (sorry, Brendy), and it's always a lark.Cars descend from the rafters for no reason, lights flash, music plays, terrible terrible just awful jokes are told, YouTubers…

Steam Input adds native Switch Pro Controller support

While one of the best things about having a gaming-spec PC is the sheer freedom you have in input devices, it really does help to have a reliable, widely supported gamepad. My current go-to is the XBox One controller, but there might be another competitor on the horizon. You'll have to opt in to the latest Steam beta to use it, but you can now…

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice swept the BAFTA game awards

The 14th British Academy Games Awards were handed out this week and, while the awards themselves may be a bit disconnected from where the rest of us in Games Proper see the industry, they are a good measurement of how The Establishment sees interactive entertainment at this point. To that end, it is both shocking and a bit exciting to see the awards highlight a…

A Game By Its Cover jam offers Famicase fun

Last month, this year's 'A Game By Its Cover' game jam invited designers to make games based off of fictional NES cartridge artwork. The covers themselves come from the annual Famicase exhibition, where Japanese game store Meteor asks artists from around the world for submissions. Its a fun project in itself, and you can mosey around the entries for 2017 here. If you prefer to…

Fan-made Metroid II Remake Shut Down By Nintendo

A fan-made remake of Metroid 2 has been scrubbed off the internet just two days after it was released, when Nintendo sent the developers a takedown order. It was finished and offered as a free game on Saturday on the creator’s website, Project AM2R, but quicker than you could say “legal team” Nintendo had sent a DMCA order to those responsible. The creators have since…

You Can Play Pokémon GO On PC, Sort Of

If you're anything like me, you're surrounded by people - and an internet - that won't stop talking and writing and buzzing about new Niantic/Pokémon Company/Nintendo mobile game Pokémon GO [official site]. Perhaps, like me, you're feeling a little left out because you had resolved to wait for the game's release in your country rather than using a workaround to get it early. Perhaps you…

E3 2016 Press Conference Streams: What, When, And Where To Watch

E3 isn't nearly as central to video games as it once was, given how many splendid games are now released without big publishers or marketing budgets, but it's still a lark innit? All those fancy video games, all in one place, all on stage singing and dancing, all in one week so dense with announcements that you'll miss most and only discover weeks later that…

John Romero Reveals Super Mario 3’s PC Port

Yesterday, on the 25th anniversary of the first Commander Keen release, id Software co-founder John Romero revealed a video of the studio's Super Mario Bros. 3 demo. Created in a single week back in 1990, the year of Commander Keen, the demo was presented to Nintendo to show the viability of a PC port of the game. The second level has been redesigned to ask…

Game In A Game: Super Mari-CS:GO

If you're in the middle of a game of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and suddenly get the urge to play Super Mario Bros., there are a few options open to you. You could stop playing CS: GO. You could grab a nearby 3DS, perhaps yanking it from the hands of a passing four year-old, and balance it under your monitor, using a series of elaborate poking…
