‘Emulation’ - Playboy discusses the world of Retro Gaming and Emulators like Dolphin!

Sex is the one of the most popular things in the world, and believe it or not, Video Games is the second most popular thing in the world, so it makes sense that the Porn Mag Playboy would run a large in-depth News Article about Emulation and the Love of Nintendo.


Playboy off and on, has an love-hate relationship with Nintendo, infact back in the day we discussed it before on MaxConsole, big 'N' themselves even placed ads for their popular video games, even some little porn little shows like Mario and Nude Showers?

So it makes sense now that Retro Gaming is a big time thing, that Playboy would interview the author of Dolphin one of the best Nintendo emulators out there and uncover the dirt behind 'Emulation' and what makes it so much fun me might even forgot about our first love, sex itself!...
