🎮 Book Update: Chapter 3 is done, including live in-browser emulator (jsnes)! Very excited to use this infrastructure going forward. This chapter is about setting up and testing your development environment, if you try it out please let me know how it went!


More PS1 Classic that would be nice to see if it had more than 20 games:

Syphon Filter
Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (and hey, why not the English translation of Innocent Sin while we're at it?)
Crash Bandicoot
Spyro series
Strider 2
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

PlayStation Classic! They've only announced 5 of the 20 games on it; what other PS1 games would be must-haves for you?

Here's my list:
I.Q. - Intelligent Qube
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy Tactics
Metal Gear Solid
Parasite Eve (any)
Tecmo's Deception (any)
Resident Evil II
Devil Dice
PaRappa the Rapper
Threads of Fate
Chrono Cross
Misadventures of Tron Bonne
Wipeout (any)
Twisted Metal (any)

I love that the default Emacs scratch buffer text got into Mario Golf (GBC) somehow. I wonder if this was a mis-copy-and-paste from a developer, or if it was another case of a compiler taking random memory contents and using them for padding in the ROM...
