I have been an apple user since a good amount of time. I started off with a MacBook Pro for my development purposes. Yes, it’s was expensive but I wanted the best. So I spent a lot of money and Got this laptop. Mac is fast, there is no denying that.
A year later, I purchased my first iPhone, completing the first step to obtain an apple ecosystem. If you ask me: yes, it’s great and amazing. Apple indeed is something.
A few days ago, I was cleaning my hard-drive and found old Gameboy games sitting in a corner. I started playing Super Mario Bros and Yoshi’s adventures for hours. It was a good time playing some old school games on my techy MacBook .
Suddenly I realized, I used to struggle a lot to play emulator games on my computer. Slow rendering speed, lots of lags and availability of games. But it was 2010.
7 years have passed by and almost everything has changed.
But how much things have evolved?
There was a time when people were so afraid of machines that almost every government shutdown projects on Artificial Intelligence. But now almost every tech giant is developing on AI one way or another.
There is an AI that taught itself to walk.
The World is still facing some serious issues like poverty, shortage of resources and education and employment, global warming and so on. But this aspect of reality is almost invisible to the almost entire population. And, why not? Why would we care about something in development?
We need the end product. I mean how this video of an animated AI is helpful. I’d rather watch the trailer of Sony PlayStation VR.
Yes, it is not important to stay updated with technology that still is not on the market yet. But if you’re aware of what is coming, you’ll stay prepared and take the best out of it (if it does).
Technology is supposed to help with issues we’re facing and it is doing its job well. Better than human beings to be honest.
You made life so better, oy’ Technology
Perhaps, far beyond human’s Appreciation
Yes, technology has its harms but with this dying world, it is our only hope besides mercy of the God. Consider the exponential rise in population. Asia soon would become a network of congested people (which already is to some extent). With good technology, we can build buildings higher than the sky, safer even in the deadliest of the natural disaster like the earthquake. Now, consider the asteroid shower and interstellar randomness, we could all die any second. Consider the pollution. Consider the corruption and its consequential human extinction.
We ultimately had to leave earth at some point in future to sustain human race, and that’s only possible with one tool to mankind: Technology. I’ll produce videos and useful articles on the “actual” and feasible technology and everything you need to know.
Technology is fire, it keeps you warm but fiddle wrongly, and you shall burn.
Do you like playing Gameboy games like Pokemon Fire Red or Emerald Green or some PlayStation 2/3 games like Assasin’s Creed or WWE Smackdown? Do you want to know, how to play console games on your PC or Android.
Well, this is a guide you need to read, 5 minutes for hours of fun every day?
Note: I do not promote playing console games on PC illegally using emulators, this guide is for educational purpose only.
What would you need
Emulator of the console, you need to simulate. There’s a website called “Emulator Zone”, just google it or click here.
You need a Rom for the game you wish to play. There’s website where you can download roms for free and there are thousands of them! (Rom is just a fancy word for game, noobs). Download Roms here.
A PC or an Android phone.
How to play the game?
Just download the emulator and open it. Set your controller if needs to be. And load from the menu and it is done. Some emulators are hard to setup (like PSP and PS3).
These emulators were initially developed to test the games but there are now used by geeks all over the world.
You can also search for emulators you like on Android’s Play Store. But in my experience, playing on PC is much smoother. But you can enjoy some lightweight games on your portable device.
My personal favorite emulator is Gameboy Advance which is absolutely free to download and there are hundred of roms available for you to play. Some emulators like PSX (PlayStation Emulator) needs bios to run. You need to own a console for that. But of course, since it is downloadable, you can get a bios for free online (I am not suggesting you that) and load that bios like you would do to a rom.
Hope this blog helped you if you’re new to gaming.
