OpenEMU

intro-list

OpenEMU looks incredible. It reminds me a little of the Rom Collection Browser plugin for XBMC (soon to be Kodi) except it seems easier to use but with less features. It looks like it’s combined a lot of open source emulators into one application, similar to MESS but with a very nice GUI in front. It looks very user friendly and seems to support a large number of emulators (they call them cores) and game pads for your gaming pleasure. I will download and do a more in depth review, but I figured I’d give ya’ll the chance to check them out too. The only thing I see being a small issue for me is that the great emulators by Richard Bannister and the awesome n64 emulator sixty force probably aren’t ever going to be in there, but it’s still one of the coolest things to hit the Mac Emulation scene in a long long time. I’m extremely excited to try this.

About Mac Emulators
I am an Old School gamer with roots in emulation and gaming. I love video games, but mostly I love the old ones from our past. Emulation is a way to experience all these old games on your personal computer.
