That's nice.... but you should really focus your attention on making the sound less buggy...

The emulator was first released in October, they've made some amazing progress in only a few months.

Emulators are usually multiple year long projects.

On top of what jmc8888 mentioned, sound emulation can be surprisingly tricky and performance impacting. As a nice example, the N64 emulator for PSP, while hardly more than proof of concept, games that worked somewhat decently like OoT still took a performance hit with sound enabled.

With that in mind, I think that sound emulation is relatively low priority and is only focused on once performance is otherwise at a point where any problems caused by sound are easily identified without holding back primary functionality.

Sweet I was waiting for the new version of cemu to drop.

I'd rather see a kernal hack for Wii U which enables offtv play for GameCube and Wii games in the hacked vWii OS. They currently will display on the gamepad but the actual buttons on it won't work.

Then create consoles that can support 60 fps and 1080p? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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...

Yi-Long246d ago (Edited 246d ago )

I don’t think it needs ‘a gimmick’ so much, because gameplay is pretty much perfect right now, but I would like the next Mario Kart to do either a ‘track-builder’ thing, so you just get access to the tools and make your own tracks (think Modnation Racers or LBP Karting), and/or expand upon ‘Mario’ Kart and open it up to the rest of Nintendo IPs, and just do a ‘Nintendo Kart’, so we’d see more of Zelda, but also Starfox, Kirby, Metroid, Valkyria Chronicles*, etc.

* I know, technically not ‘Nintendo’.
