    Heres another great release for Snes homebrew fans and rememeber that you can play Snes Homebrew on any Snes Emulator for any system:

    Merry Christmas everyone! We here at D-D always try our best to give you a holiday ROM goodie, and this year we even made our Christmas release window! Santa says he hopes you like this little gem just in time for Christmas 2017!
    Princess Minerva is a really interesting game. You control a squad of nine female warriors trying to stop a another group of female warriors from turning every young girl in the kingdom into a monster girl. Your party is divided into three sub parties which all fight battles at random. All Nine girls must be used in battle and you can’t control which team gets put into battle except in boss fights. It is a pretty fun and quite silly little turn based RPG that we hope you enjoy.
    We highly recommend that you read the readme file as it will inform you about a few bugs to expect to encounter from the original Japanese rom and other things to expect during gameplay.

    You cant beat the Xmas season for great Homebrew releases, well heres a translation of a classic Snes game that will get your mouth watering:

    Almost 20 years after its original Japanese release, the immediate ancestor to the beloved tactics game Advance Wars is finally playable in English.
    Super Famicom Wars was developed by Intelligent Systems, published by Nintendo and first released on May 1 1998. The game was available exclusively via the Nintendo Power rewritable cartridge system, making it one of the hardest Super Famicom titles to obtain.
    The game was followed up by two titles for Game Boy Advance then yet another two for Nintendo DS in relatively quick succession. Since then, not much has been heard about the series’ future from either Nintendo or Intelligent Systems. This is a shame, really, since the Wars series’ upbeat take on turn-based military strategy is uniquely charming and accessible. So, in a way, releasing this translation makes a new game in the Wars franchise available to the English speaking world for the first time in almost ten years.

    Heres a new release of one of the iconic Snes Emulators for Windows, this is an emulator i remember from the days when i started checking out emulation sites and was amazed that computers could emulate consoles, heres the release info:

    Snes9x v1.55 is released. Snes9x is a portable, freeware Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) emulator. It basically allows you to play most games designed for the SNES and Super Famicom Nintendo game systems on your PC or Workstation; which includes some real gems that were only ever released in Japan. Snes9x is the result of well over three years worth of part-time hacking, coding, recoding, debugging, divorce, etc. (just kidding about the divorce bit). Snes9x is coded in C++, with three assembler CPU emulation cores on the i386 Linux and Windows ports.

    Snes9x changelog:
    - Added support for the MSU-1 coprocessor. (qwertymodo)
    - Added support for MSU-1 distribution pack. (qwertymodo)

    - Win32: Split Patch/Rom directory. (OV2)
    - Win32: Simplified compilation by removing or including some dependencies (included CG headers, completely removed FMOD and FMOD_EX, moved direct draw to compile switch) and reworking solution/configurations. (bonimy, OV2)
    - Win32: Fixed crash with movie dialog (OV2)
    - Win32: Changed hotplugging (OV2)

    For the last year ive been away from DCEmu and once you step away its hard to get back but I decided a while back that its time to go back to basics and condense all the sites as far as I can, get rid of meaningless sites and then when I have it all as I want it, get back to newsposting like I used to years ago, with that in mind, all our Nintendo News is now going to be under one site, that means all the DS, 3DS, Wii, Wii U, Gamecube, N64, Snes, GBA, NES, GBC, GB and any future news will all be together.

    When I start posting news again we will host our files also and get back to the good old days.

    While everyone knows that the Mario games series has been popular since it launched during the 1980s, not everyone knows that even the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog drew inspiration from it. This long-running success is down to innovative worlds and levels like these 10.

    1. Level 8 Crown

    This is the really hard final secret level in the Super Mario 3D Land game and requires you to claim no less than 290 Star Medals, beat each stage with Luigi as well as Mario and grab the Golden Flag Pole to make this level your own.

    2. Negative World

    The most well-known secret level in the original Super Mario Bros instalment of the series, Negative World is an underwater level and includes some unlikely company for Mario – such as a goomba.

    3. Castle Roof Trick

    The accepted way to reach the roof of the castle owned by Peach in Super Mario 64 is by dutifully securing all 120 Stars first – but you can speed things up if you are skilled in executing the Mario triple jump move. Go to the right end of the castle’s courtyard and start triple jumping using the hill and walls to help you reach the top.

    4. Grate Guy’s Casino

    One of the secret casino levels in Mario games, you get to the casino controlled by Grate Guy in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars by using the Bean Valley hidden passage, beating the waiting Chomp Chomp and entering with a Bright Card. You can then win the Star Egg or Frog Coins by playing slots, blackjack and other games.

    5. Star World

    Super Mario World offered five Star World secret levels with Yoshis to be collected for use later and culminated in Star World 5, where the secret exit to the final Special World was hidden.

    6. Special World

    A really hard level to claim, this finale to Super Mario World had lots of incredibly hard stages – with the last being the ‘Awesome’ one featuring angular, icy slopes to be negotiated while avoiding Bullet Bills.

    7. Secret of Casino Delfino

    There is a complex secret casino level on Delfino Island in Super Mario Sunshine. Accessed via the Hotel Casino’s fifth floor, scoring 777 on the twin slots and making a Shine Sprite from the question marks on the board provides entry to the next secret level where you can claim a Shine.

    8. Retro Mario

    Super Mario RPG features a secret level where Mario goes back in time to become an 8-bit animation, and is accessed by taking Mario behind one of the curtains in a small room within Booster Tower.

    9. Autumn Re-skin

    Having overcome the hard challenges of Super Mario World’s Special World, you will have the option of ‘re-skinning’ the entire game – changing everything from world map to colour scheme and taking on enemies wearing fresh masks in an autumnal Yoshi’s Island.

    10. Negative Warp Zones

    Found within Super Mario Bros 2, these are accessed by avoiding the standard World 3-1 exit by jumping over it using the trampoline. It is something of a mixed blessing though, as the Negative Warp Zone can only be escaped from through suicide or going back to the very start!

    March the 10th will see the annual Mario Day created to honour this games series, and you can always mark it by seeking out these secret levels. ...

    When a mysterious "Nintendo PlayStation" prototype with both an SNES cartridge slot and a CD drive made the rounds back in July, many remained skeptical. Not even Sony PlayStation's head of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, wanted to confirm its authenticity. Or perhaps he just didn't want to bring up the bad blood between his company and Nintendo over this failed collaboration.

    Back in 1988, Sony inked a deal with the legendary gaming giant to add its then new CD-ROM technology to the upcoming SNES console. But when it came to money, they couldn't reach an agreement: Sony allegedly wanted to keep all the money from CD licenses and then figure out royalties with Nintendo later. As you'd imagine, Nintendo didn't take to this arrangement too kindly. Eventually, just a day after Sony unveiled this "Play Station" at the Chicago CES in 1991, Nintendo retaliated with a surprise move by publiclybreaking up with Sony in favor of Philips. Well, that partnership didn't work out for Nintendo, either. But this infamous rupture did lead to the birth of Sony's very own PlayStation, which went on to become one of the company's most profitable assets today.

    The "Nintendo PlayStation" is now the stuff of gaming legend, with reportedly only about 200 prototypes ever produced. But, as luck would have it, one of those systems fell into the hands of a father and son: Terry and Dan Diebold. We met up with the Diebolds in Hong Kong, where they were in town for a retro gaming expo, to hear how it ended up in their possession. Most importantly, we got to turn the "Nintendo PlayStation" on, play a couple of SNES games on it, and even take it apart to see if we could fix the dormant CD drive.

    For those who know me know ive been a fan of emulation for 20 years or more, the reason i started a videogames website was purely because i like to play emulators of old consoles on a single device.

    Recently the homebrew/emulation scene has been stagnant, no real breakthroughs means that the best way is to buy a device that is made for emulation fans like myself, i reviewed the JXD S7300 Android Tablet and for a fan like me i loved it. The Android tablet was for me perfect, the mixing of old style controls and touchscreen inside an Android OS and with Gamecenter X you could download games onto your console with no messing around, the console/tablet game with Android/N64/Megadrive/Arcade/GBA and Nes Emulators with games built in, beyond awesome.

    But JXD since then have brought out a new and improved JXD S7800b Gaming Tablet which features PS1, MAME, Dreamcast, N64, NeoGeo, Atari, NES, SNES, Gameboy, Gameboy Colour, Gameboy Advance, SEGA Master System, SEGA Mega Drive, CPS1, CPS2, Amiga, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum Emulation to name just a few, am i salivating ?, hell yes.

    The JXD S7800b Gaming Tablet has a 7" 1280x800 IPS 5 Point Multi-Touch Capacitive Screen, RockChip RK3188 QuadCore 1.8GHz CPU - 2GB DDR3 RAM - 8GB Memory, Network Wi-Fi(802.11 b/g/n), External Ethernet,3G with Dongle and runs Android 4.2.2 Jellybean OS.


    So this Android Tablet runs one of the latest versions of the Android OS plus comes built in with all them emulators and you can do what you would expect from a normal Android Tablet.

    If i can snag one for review ill put it through its paces but for now check out the JXD S7800B at Funstock in the UK

    You know, when we were kids playing Monopoly, all we had to choose from were the thimble, shoe, top hat, car, wheelbarrow, dog and battleship, and cousin Johnny always took the battleship! Hmph! Well, kids today won't have to suffer such indignities thanks to USAopoly, the company behind custom versions of classic board games; they're releasing Monopoly: The Legend of Zelda Edition, complete with way cooler player tokens.

    Customers who pick up this special version of Monopoly will be able to choose from such Zelda series staples as the Bow, Hookshot, Boomerang, Triforce and Hylian Shield to represent their progress. If you're picking up the board game from GameStop, you'll also be able to choose the Ocarina of Time. The GameStop edition also comes with six "Power Cards" to tweak gameplay and a Hyrule map lithograph, all packaged inside an exclusive square box.

    A GameStop pre-order page for Monopoly: The Legend of Zelda Edition lists September 15 as a release date. If nothing else, it might not be a bad way to pass the time until Hyrule Warriors hits shelves on September 26.
