  Summertime Blues 7/13/2024    
       
  It's been pretty slow around here lately - updates to the site always slow down in the warmer months and this year has been no exception. I do have some things to add though, in addition to the steady flow of NES-related news (which is amazingly consistent, all these decades later), so hopefully the updates will be a bit more frequent in the coming weeks.

  Nintendulator 0.985 beta 1/17/2024    
       
  It feels like the NES emulator news is very slow these days, probably due to some combination of maturity and lack of interest. As a result, it's always to see an NES emulator updated. With that in mind...
