    2. Nintendo 3DS News

    Now, the 3DS has just received a new piece of homebrew called uae3DS which is a port of uae4all letting you emulate the Amiga 500.
    This port, which was released by Badda this weekend, is currently work in progress but performance is said to be pretty good on both the Old and New 3DS which allows many titles to be playable according to the developer. In the future, there are plans to add quite a few features including:

    • A CIA version
    • Some form of auto-updater presumably making use of an internet connection
    • Keyboard and mouse functionality on the bottom screen
    • Key mapping with the ability to save combos to SDCard
    • Autofire functionality
    • An option to get rid of black borders and do screen scaling/zooming
    • Other stuff like moving the status bar to the bottom and attaching/mounting a directory on the SDCard as an emulated hard drive

    You may read more about uae3DS and find its download links on its GBATemp thread.

    2. Wii U News

    Cemu v1.17.2b is released. Cemu is a Nintendo Wii U emulator that runs commercial games. Highly experimental software to emulate Wii U applications on PC.

    Cemu Changelog:
    # New in 1.17.2b:

    general: Improved robustness of settings.xml parser to avoid crashes when loading bad or outdated settings files
    general: Display CPU menu if Cemuhook is installed (for Cemuhook affinity settings)

    OpenGL: Fixed a regression which broke depth-stencil texture formats when graphic packs were enabled

    gfxPacks: Added support for @h suffix in patch parser (Used by XCX 60FPS pack)

    # New in 1.17.2:

    general: Fixed an issue where the game list would display updates/dlc instead of the base game, if no base game was found
    general: Removed redundant global options for cpu and vertex cache in the menu bar
    general: Removed precompiled shaders option from game profiles since there isn't really a reason to configure it per-game
    general: Added a new debug option to the general settings to enable the creation of crash dumps

    coreinit: Overhauled MP task queue API. The previous implementation required a game-specific workaround for Toyko Mirage Sessions which is now no longer necessary
    coreinit: Fixed several race conditions which could lead to deadlocks in multi-core recompiler mode
    coreinit: The default PowerPC thread for core 1 is now also the thread that begins execution in the game's main() method. Some games rely on this behavior.
    This change fixes crashes in Paper Mario Color Splash

    Vulkan: Fixed a rare crash that could occur in any game due to a hash collision in the pipeline runtime cache
    Vulkan: Fixed custom shaders not being applied for V5 graphic packs (#270)
    Vulkan: Several minor tweaks to increase stability

    nn_boss: Fixed a crash that could occur when the game requested to run an invalid task

    Aiguanachein is working on a very nice Game Boy Color platform game named Powa! The game will feature different worlds, music by sergeeo and certainly final bosses. After exchanging emails with the main author there might be physical carts, once the game is final.
    We at PDRoms already had the pleasure to play the game and it plays solid and is fun, we would really love to see this game in final stage.

    A Fairy Without Wings is a rather fresh Game Boy game by Nekete, developed using ZGB/GBDK



    You are a tooth fairy who was born without wings. When she collects enough teeth, she gains the power to shoot lightning (which helps to free the fairies!), but a simple contact will make her teleport away because she doesn’t control her powers completely.

    When it was released in 1988, Ultima: Exodus was revolutionary, and proof that the RPGs that were already popular on microcomputers could be ported to home consoles. However, the original game had its flaws, and the NES version added its own.
    This patch not only fixes bugs and restores missing text and clues, but also updates the graphics, reintroduces enemies that were only found in the computer versions, and improves the gameplay without completely altering it.
    Gone are the days of grinding low level monsters for 95% of a playthrough: now levelling up is actually rewarding and encouraged. Higher level characters receive buffs and special abilities, magic users become more powerful and their spells have better chances to succeed, and more dangerous monsters and dungeons also give the best loot.
    Note that this isn’t an “easy mode” patch: the game is still punishing, but not in an unfair and unfun way. The player will progress through their quest to defeat Exodus.
    A partial list of what’s on offer in Ultima: Exodus Remastered (see the Release Notes for an extensive list):

    • Updated, more user-friendly UI
    • Bug fixes
    • Many Quality-Of-Life changes
    • Improved “3D” dungeon view
    • Graphics inspired to Ultima IV-VI
    • NPC portraits in dialogues
    • Lootable weapons/armour
    • New enemy AI makes battles faster and more tactical
    • Battle/magic systems rebalance
    • More distinct Professions, each with their own stats and abilities
    • Horses actually make map movement faster over certain terrain types and are not just cosmetic

    Note that this hack does not alter sound/music and is aimed at being compatible with future sound/music hacks.
    Have fun exploring Sosaria again!

    The tenth anniversary bundle of Bayonetta & Vanquish was the biggest new boxed release of the week in the UK.
    The action titles from developer Platinum and publisher Sega were bundled together for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and reached No.10 in its first week at retail.
    On the surface, this week's UK physical retail charts look familiar with the classic trio of FIFA 20 at No.1, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at No.2 and Grand Theft Auto V at No.3.
    But there are a number of returning games to the charts as a result of some Half-Term deals at major games retailers.
    Deals around Team Sonic Racing at stores including Smyths sees the Sega kart racer reach No.7 -- a 99% increase in sales week-on-week. Microsoft's Forza Horizon 4 jumps 229% in sales and returns to the charts at No.8. Meanwhile, some deals around Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (including a Call of Duty bundle at GAME) sees the 2018 shooter re-enter the charts at No.11 (up 169% week-on-week).

    2. Xbox One

    Microsoft has revealed a few new details surrounding the Xbox Series X.
    In an Xbox Wire post, Xbox head Phil Spencer today said "the next console generation will be defined by more playing and less waiting," and some of the Series X features were designed with that in mind.
    For example, the system will have a Quick Resume feature that lets players have multiple games in a suspended state for a near-instant return to action. Like the Xbox One X, the Series X will also support HDMI 2.1, which will let the console automatically set the connected TV or monitor to the mode with the lowest latency and synchronize refresh rates between the display and the game. Spencer also listed previously announced features like the system's SSD storage, 120 frames per second support, and optimized wireless communications with the controller as contributing to a focus on instant immersion.
    Under the hood, Spencer said the Series X will have 12 teraflops of GPU performance. That's twice the Xbox One X's total and more than eight times the original Xbox One's capabilities.
