    Dolphin also plays Wii games, not just GCN... but you'll still need an actual Wii Plus remote for Skyward Sword and possibly MP3.

    I'm currently playing Castlevania CotM on a 3DS via virtual console injection. That and an installed DS emulator allow me to play what feels like Nintendo's entire 80s-90s and handheld 00s library on one device.

    That would be because Dolphin has now been, and still is, benefiting from years of regular optimization, while most older emulator stop at "good enough".

    I knew 3DS emulation was deep, but I wasn't expecting this. A jailbroken system can play the following:

    • NES games through a couple different emulators
    • SNES games (O3DS needs to run these through an emulator - Snes9x - but N3DS doesn't)
    • GB/GBC games through a couple different emulators
    • GBA games through VC injection. Every 3DS ever built has the GBA hardware already included as a holdover from the Ambassadors promotion, so it's just a matter of installing the games.
    • Sega Genesis / Master System / Mega Drive / CD games through PicoDrive (the only Sega-only series I even know is Sonic, and those were all eventually ported to GBA anyway :/ )
    • Turbografx-16/PC-Engine games through TemperPCE (I never had this system and have no idea what it offered)
    • DS roms through the TwilightMenu (Zelda PH and ST won't progress past their openings, and Pokemon's multiplayer aspect means you're always better off with actual cartridges and save editing, but CV DOS/POR/OOE are just fine)
    • 3DS roms, if you convert them into .cia executables first
    • some PSX games, including FF7, FFT, Spyro 1-2, SOTN, and Valkyrie Profile 1, through PSCX (the emulator devs are only testing it on N3DSs)
    I'm installing Bravely Default right now.

    So I'm looking at a playthrough of Shining Resonance Refrain, I think I like it, despite the mediocre music for a music being so important and the blatant fanservice DLCs.

    Edit: Mostly because of how seemingly reasonable everyone is.

    Please tell me the main character stop being angsty. The demo killed any and all interest I had in the game because of that guy alone.

    Same. It's pretty bad when the best character is the voice in the MC's head that keeps calling him a weenie.

    Incidentally, Master Blaster Zero 2 also came out yesterday, for those that care. The plot is, basically, going to find a cure for your waifu.

    Some, of course, already joked the infection seemed to have had one nice side-benefit at least. Or two. ^_^;
