And Boom, Jackass/Vita/SNES Prophecy Fulfilled

"Will we ever truly be able to leave the past behind us, or will the ghosts of 16-bit haunt every new system for as long as we live. I have to admit, it's nice to see certain games still getting attention, and that if I were dead, I would also haunt everyone possible, but at the same time, this trend is disturbing." -GR (Culture, PS Vita, Retro)

So true, the SNES is great. I bought a foreign Android tablet with buttons (JXD s7100) primarily to play SNES games (especially Super Mario World)

how fast is that tablet?
I'm pretty sure that it will have no problems running emulators, but I was wondering more on the performance side of the android OS.
Does the internet browser run smoothly? can i flick through pages or apps without it stuttering with slowdown?
I have one of those chinese android tablets and it does not run smooth at all.

Here's the thing, spec wise it's great and really powerful for the price (when I bought it last year anyway) but nearly no apps on Google Play support it. I'm not sure why exactly, I'm sure they would run if downloaded directly, but GPlay just won't list tons of them for the device. There's ways to work around this, but it's a huge buzz kill for sure.

Like I said, spec wise it's decent, so the UI is very smooth.

For some games I can't leave the past behind me (Looking at you ToeJam & Earl one day I shall beat you). Though I would like it if some companies didn't forget the past and bring back a few old favorites *Cough* F-Zero *Cough*. I kind of wish a lot of SNES games could be played on the 3DS. While I do enjoy playing them every now and again on the Wii I would like to be able to play them on the handheld.

I loved the NES as much as I loved the Atari 2600, which was a lot. It's great to be nostalgic but, at the same time, newer games are much more fun to play.

I'm pretty sure I can play these on my Droid Bionic, and I know I can play them on my PC. I'll keep my PSP's and PS Vita on original firmware thank you.

Whether it's the SNES or another platform, I'm just happy people remember the classics and are willing (and desiring) to play them still. ^_^

A very good point.
Hopefully people are also using this to get the ones that I can kind of justify, like Earthbound (out of print and can't be remade) and the first Star Ocean (didn't come to NA, so it's a fanslation).
