Let's Play PCSX2... Again!

My Thoughts On: April 7th, 2009

An update to my previous PCSX2 review shows the progress the emulator has made in the last year or so.

Just thought I'd pop on for a moment and do a quick video to followup on my previous review of PCSX2, a Playstation 2 emulator for the PC. It is coming along smoothly and works much better than it did back in my review of it a little over a year ago.

The Pitch: A little over a year and a half ago I reviewed PCSX2, a Playstation 2 emulator, and it was of a middling quality. During the initial review it even crashed on me a couple of times. While it was playable, it was very painful to play. Well, development on the project has picked up quite a bit, and speeds and compatibility are very noticably improved. Still using the same machine, I decided to record my latest results. Version featured is 0.9.6. (I have finished both Shadow of the Colossus - speed hack settings a must for that game - and We Love Katamari using this emulator.)

Also featured: my strategy for using emulator save states for hunting metal slimes. Now if I could just figure out a way to make that alchemy pot work faster...
