Well, it was only a matter of time, but SNES emulators are here!

You know it was coming. Linux opened so many doors and windows with its Yellow Dog iteration, this shouldn't be such a big surprise. I mean, Snes9x operates in Linux, so... you know. While the video on YouTube has a guy going really, really slow in loading Chrono Trigger (he's really typing like he's eating a hot dog with one hand and balancing a soda in the other), the truth of the matter is that it works! It runs nearly at full speed and with those fun little 16-bit sounds. The sounds are, however, slightly off-kilter. No biggie, though.

Personally, I'd rather play all my SNES emulator games for free than download the classics on that virtual library thingy. But for all you perfection buffs, know that it's not a completely, absolutely perfect rendition of your classic SNES titles. So, take your pic. If I had a PS3 right now, I'd be loading up... hmm... probably the translated Seiken Densetsu 3... A.K.A. Secret of Mana 3 (let me break that down right quick: the first game was titled Final Fantasy Adventure for the Game Boy, the second was actually Secret of Mana and this was the third! Ta-da!).

[thanks MiKE!]
