I was just pulling your plonk ;) They're fantastic machines, and I also reckon an "in-depth" look at some of the better emulators would be a cool idea for an article.

Never really understood why they didn't shift more units; as well as all the magical pretend 8 and 16 bit goodness, they also make cracking video/music players... many a time mine's accompanied me on a trip to be hooked up to the telly in a cabin on a campsite... most of last year's Doctor Who was watched in this way...

Well, we used to have Emulation Nation in Retro Gamer, but I'm guessing that column's dead. I've certainly pitched an NDS episode a few times (including interviews with a couple of the devs), but it's never been commissioned.

On the subject of emulators, has anyone on here managed to get Nuance (the Nuon emulator) running at a half decent speed?

If so what sort of specs does the system you're running it on have? It runs like a tortoise on my setup. :(

Note for the uninformed: the Nuon was a semi-console (souped up dvd player that you could play games on) that is most famous for the Jeff Minter shmup Tempest 3000.

There used to be. It was tacked on the back of a "retrospection" where RG would recommend an emulator to use.
