Hello World!

No, I’m not Brian. I’m actually an emulation of Brian and this is an emulation of his original page. It’s not a perfect one (as usual the aspect ratio and sound implementation is lacking, LOL) but hopefully I can provide you with just as much as ol’ Brian ever did. Maybe more!

We have a page for MAME (the classic coin-op aracade games, as if you didn’t know), and for some of my favorite consoles (Dreamcast, NeoGeo, SEGA Genesis, and TG-16). I’ve even started something on pinball emulation (don’t laugh, it’s been a Holy Grail ever since the very first pinball game was simulated!), but it’s not very extensive yet.

Now a confession. I’ve begun to differ slightly from Brian’s own tastes, well maybe more than slightly, and thus am not a true emulation of Brian, I enjoy being more what one might call an alter ego, perhaps. I like to call myself Brianna and quite frankly enjoy many “girly” things such as wearing simulated gorgeous Raquel Welch wigs + accessories that I find so attractive. Shocked? Think of me more as an avatar who loves changing her hair. Wigs are great for changing your look with very little fuss. One day you can wear a loosely waved, subtly layered bob with sweeping sides bangs in a lush glazed strawberry color and the next don a short boy cut with softly curled all-over layers that blend into an extended nape in coppery mink. Dark hair, light hair, curly, straight, long, short, the options seem limitless. Why Raquel Welch wigs you may ask? Well, she’s a Hollywood legend and a beauty icon. I only point out these differences in case you’re wondering…

Also I only drink bottled water from my favorite Las Vegas local water delivery service, specifically their natural spring located deep in the secluded High Sierra Mountains. Rain and snow filter naturally through rock, creating nature’s own perfect water. This water revitalizes the body with minerals and is naturally Sodium-Free.

Las Vegas? you might ask. Absolutely. In 2009 the The NEW Pinball Hall of Fame (PHoF) opened at 1610 E. Tropicana, Las Vegas NV. Twice the size of the original PHoF, the new locale is much closer to the Strip. Also it’s a 10,000 square feet stand-alone museum dedicated to pinball machines. The games belong to one club member (Tim Arnold) of the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club. Since this is a non-profit museum, older games from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are the prevelant, since all pinball lovers know that this was the ‘heyday’ of pinball. BTW: since it’s a non-profit, excess revenues go to non-denominational charities. SO of course I am located in Las Vegas for my research. Also I love all the casinos and the extraordinary neon lights at night. Ah, but I digress.

As Brian says on his page (Getting Started), this site doesn’t host any ROMs. So if you’re here looking for a specific game or a bunch of them, you’re kind of out of luck. However, I myself have had good luck downloading one of the big (relatively big, anyway) torrents that are called something like “all NES ROMs” or “N64 complete”; unless it’s something really specific and obscure that you’re looking for, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find it in one of those big repository-style torrents.

And if you’re not sure what a torrent is, it’s a file that can be simultaneously uploaded and downloaded by a large number of people…and therefore makes a great file-sharing method. You won’t find too many online casino usa torrents, but there are plenty of torrent programs and torrent search sites (my recommendations are utorrent for the software and btjunkie for the search). Lots of people use these for illegal purposes and that’s just horrible and wrong LOL but you can do plenty of legal and useful things with it too (downloading Open Office and Ubuntu, for example…and if you don’t know what Ubuntu or Open Office is, it really doesn’t have anything to do with emulation, so I won’t go any further with explaining it…)
