DAILY MANIFESTO

And Boom, Jackass/Vita/SNES Prophecy Fulfilled

Earlier this year, I wrote a joke piece about Vita homebrew intended as nothing more than harmless joking.

So is the SNES confirmed to be the greatest system of all time? With the release of every single new piece of game hardware comes a frantic scramble to mak it play Super Nintendo games as quickly as possible. If you really want to play those games for free, regardless of location, there's been PC-based emulation of these things for over a decade. If you really crave them portable, and their being "free" is another appealing factor, there's been a PSP-1000 for that, for like seven years now.

Will we ever truly be able to leave the past behind us, or will the ghosts of 16-bit haunt every new system for as long as we live. I have to admit, it's nice to see certain games still getting attention, and that if I were dead, I would also haunt everyone possible, but at the same time, this trend is disturbing.
