This never ceases to amaze me. Despite what the naysayers were saying, they have come a long way. Keep up the hard work ;)

It looks like crap. If this amazes you I cant imagine how you would react to the real version.

LOL_WUT2685d ago

I own the game dude. What I meant was, for an emulator, this looks awesome. ;)

Wow. Surprised at how much progress they have made in such a short time. The PS3 emulator can barely run Ace Combat, let alone a high quality exclusive like MK8. Although the progress is very slow, we know it is because of how hard it is to emulate the Cell, RSX and SPUs. That is why Sony can't do BC on the PS4.

I wonder if the team can make a separate window to run the emulated game pad by clicking the mouse to simulate a tap on the scteen? Simillar to what the DS emulators have done. There are a few games that will be unplayable without game pad emulation.

Exactly but NOPE, according to the average internet guy Sony just doesn't want to give people backward compatibility cause they are focused on selling Playstation Now...

I refuse to believe that Sony, with all of their professional paid programmers and money, couldn't figure out a way to do it if they had actually tried.

freshslicepizza2686d ago

of course they could but they are waging need versus costs and there really is no pressure on them to do it. microsoft managed to do it on the xbox 360 and it was a totally different design from the first xbox but it wasn't easy. they also had to pay royalties to nvidia because they didn't use their chips after the first xbox.

The Next Mario Kart Desperately Needs A Good Gimmick

Mario Kart 8 has been out for nine years now if you include the Wii U version. Despite the Switch port continuing to sell insane numbers since it came out in 2017, many people believed that a new installment was way past due. When the Booster Course Pass was announced instead, it was a bit controversial, with one side of people stating that it was time for a new game, and the other side believing that this was the best course of action and that there's nothing else Nintendo can do to innovate the franchise.

There's nothing wrong with the games, but after most of them being very samey, I got a bit bored. I liked MKDS because it added a mission mode, yeah it didn't have maybe as many as I'd like but it was decent for variety.

I really prefer the new Mario Party for the different types of games in it.

Mario Kart doesn't really feel fresh because you know what to expect for every new game pretty much. The single player mode of DKR was far more in depth a game vs Mario Kart IMO, MK is probably better for multiplayer though.

It needs a campaign mode like Crash Team Racing with open hubs, driving around the Mushroom Kingdom, selecting your races and the like. Have a system like the CTR tokens within the races that then unlock secret racing cups later on or the time relics to unlock other things.

There's nothing wrong with the games but when you've had the same set up for so many games it just gets a bit samey after a while.

They could even have something like a track creator like Modnation Racers or something.

I always enjoyed the single player aspect of Diddy Kong Racing myself.

After starting with the first game on SNES, I think the last one I bought was on the DS.

I think the next gimmick should be interactive tracks with obstacles and traps such as maybe throwing a shell ahead to make something fall on another player Also have water and mud parts that effect handling more also fire parts that can cause you to over heat if you stay in it to long etc...
