Being the first installment of a phone book that we hope will please you, we start with a small presentation.

Send your articles to the email address possibly in format doc or at most pdf, it's fine also a paste copy in the body of the mail, but no alien format for courtesy. Remember to specify Name e Surname as well as the 'subject of review in itself accompanied by the eventuality allowed to publish with your name (if you prefer it is a good one too nickname or publication in form anonymous).

As the community is very large, we can in no way guarantee the publication of every single item we will receive for both quantity and quality of the same. That said, welcome to "Editor for a Day"And let's start right away in the first article Vincenzo Paolo Esposito! (ndR Articles will be redrafted to a minimum to ensure proper layout and good readability by reviewing any errors. The logical sense of the writings will not be affected in any way. I also add that what you will read does not in any way reflect the thought of talking about video games, in this particular address book we only think of a way. So go slowly with flames and insults, because personal opinions are sacrosanct)

Emulators: Best Consoles?

It has never been for the mind to want to rethink or find an old man Super Mario? But obviously you! Just rubbing the old man NES daddy, plug the cartridge and ... what? Do not you have a cartridge? Sis it broken? Or worse ... Do not have the hardware you need to play? Well, there are two ways you can follow.

La before (the most expensive and long) turns out to be eBay where with a hundred euros you bring home one NES yellowed with super mario cartridge and a working medium pad ... ah do not forget long shipping times! When you arrive at the destination parcel you are convinced that everything will go for the best, for good! Just ... you have a modern TV with VGA, HDMI, SCART sockets and also the RF antenna attachment, that's where you'll have to connect the video output of your console. Thing? Does not work? Will you have to spend 10 € for a decent adapter? But it is obvious! Now that you have anything that could go wrong? Ops, you find yourself playing on the TV with a flicker of distraction. Here's how you wasted time and money.

La second (the absolute best) is the use of an emulator. What is a Emulator? An emulator, [...] is a component that replicates the functions of a given system on a second system other than the first -Wikipedia.

Now that we know what it is enough to simply googlare "PC emulator" plus the name of the platform to be emulated. Simple! Then you just need to find a copy of your online game.

Stop! we are pirating by chance the games? Um ... maybe. In Italy, emulating a game is legal only if you have a physical copy of the game. And if that game is unavailable or does one eye out of the head? Does it really worth it? Just remember the Mame (Acronym for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator), is nothing more than a universal emulator of the infinite game room cabinets, its purpose, along with other emulators is to keep alive the games of previous eras, non-profit! So emulating is not a crime if nobody gets it. (Editor's note As a good law editor, I think it's worth adding that in any case the emulation is legal ONLY and uniquely if you have the original physical support containing the game. Basically playing with a rom is the equivalent of having a backup copy for personal use so as not to spoil the original media)

Clarified this aspect, it's just enough to find our game and start it with the emulator to find out the huge differences compared to when you were playing on consoles! Well, in addition to time and cost, another advantage is the good execution of the game, which can be determined by a better frame rate (frame per second or fps), better texture and game resolution, all accompanied by the choice of any Filters, Shaders and Antialiasing. A paradise is not it? But if you have a PC that is more than decent and has no depression Intel Graphics (chills).

Today, with the recent production stop WiiU e PlayStation3 (peace of mind to them) are further affirmed by their respective emulators: Cemu e RPCS3 (still working with some titles, but at the same time both in a testing state). Now also the PC MASTER RACE it can boast of playing titles like 5 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to a better quality (if you have a 1080Ti SLI).

In conclusion, who wins between emulator and console? You will surely understand it.
