After cashing in on Gen X retro nostalgia last year with the NES Classic Edition, Nintendo has inevitably revealed its next-gen (ha) SNES Classic Edition, launching on 29 September with 21 pre-installed games including Star Fox 2. That’s the same Star Fox 2 that was cancelled in 1995, so it’s kind of a big deal.
… But those references have since been removed, apparently, so you’ll have to take my word for it, but you totally can because my dad’s ex-cousin’s girlfriend’s cat works at Nintendo. Or because this guy on the Overwatch forums swears that he saw an error in the current PTR build’s crashlog, citing its version as “Overwatch – 220.127.116.11 Doomfist / Summer Games”, and even posted a screenshot to prove it. A number of other forum users were able to reproduce the same crashlog entry, so that’s… intriguing.
Blizzard isn’t confirming or denying it for the moment (obviously), but last year’s Summer Games event started in August and it’s already almost July, so that part also isn’t entirely implausible. Huh.
For the last few years a team of developers have been trying to get PlayStation 3 emulation working on the PC platform. Sony’s PS3 has been the most difficult platform to emulate fully because of how exotic the hardware is, and a lot of brute force power has been necessary to play even the most basic PS3 games at 30 frames per second. The project, called RPCS3 Emulator, recently got into its stride thanks to several breakthroughs in the last two years, and many games are now fully playable. God of War Collection has been a stalling point for the project for a while, but it too has been seeing progress.
