Super Mario Odyssey Switch Emulator

Earlier this year a Nintendo Switch emulator called Yuzu entered headlines, aiming to allow people to play Switch games on PC. While it was in the very early stages, today we’re getting some updates that show that the emulator is progressing nicely.

It has been revealed that this emulator is now able to get Super Mario Odyssey in-game, meaning that it can boot it up and get into gameplay. However, it’s still not in a playable state, as the gameplay has many issues that need to be ironed out before it reaches that stage. Still, this is huge progress that shows that the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight.

While Super Mario Odyssey will require more work to get into a playable state, there’s actually other games that are almost entirely playable. One example is One Piece: Unlimited World Red. There are still some issues, but this emulation is close to being complete.

The developer provided an update back in April on what they were focusing on, saying the following:

“Currently, yuzu has two major development fronts that are ongoing: First, we are trying to get more games booting further, to the point that they are trying to render frames, and second, to try to emulate the Nvidia Maxwell GPU. Even for simple games such as these, Maxwell emulation has shown to be quite challenging – and we suspect that this will be our biggest focus in the coming months.”

You can check out a video of Super Mario Odyssey running through the Yuzu emulator below.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
