Running DOS classics? Well, there's plenty of ways to choose from with multiple projects looking to speed up the development on DOSBox with both DOSBox-X and DOSBox Staging seeing new releases.
The highly respected developer known as Near, creator of emulators like bsnes, higan and more has died.
Do you love retro gaming and emulation? How about pocket sized devices, powered by Linux that you can take anywhere? The FunKey S looks like a really sweet bit of kit.
The team behind the RetroArch application have announced the Open Hardware project, their attempt to make things easy for you and they also recently added a new fantasy console core to play with.
Keeping a classic Sony console alive is the PPSSPP emulator for the original PlayStation Portable (PSP) and it continues to see development with a 1.11 release out now.
Sega Mega Drive (Sega Genesis)? That's not a piece of Linux gaming hardware last I checked? No but Irena Genesis Metal Fury is a new game coming for the retro console and will provide the rom file for your favourite emulators.
While still highly experimental and quite a hassle to setup legitimately, the Nintendo Switch emulator yuzu is still another fine example of open source.
Looking for a little gaming on the go or perhaps something in bed? The upcoming ODROID-Go Super sounds like quite a useful little Switch-styled device.
Want to play old DOS games easily on whatever Linux machine you're using? RetroArch now has a new fork named DOSBox Pure and you can give it a test now.
DOSBox Staging is the fork of the original emulator with an aim to modernize it and give it some more advanced features, with the latest release out now.
With the awesome RetroArch application for running emulators and all sorts coming to Steam, they now have a Playtest available you can opt into to try it out.
Feel the need to run some classic PlayStation 2 games? It's set to get a lot easier, as the RetroArch team have reported on their work with PCSX2.
Still can't believe my eyes as I try out games with 3dSen PC, with it converting classic NES games into 3D and it just feels like magic.
If you find the RetroArch a little overwhelming and want something different as a front-end for Libretro, have a look at the newly announced Ludo.
Back in June, the awesome emulator 3dSen PC was released, which gave us a whole new way to play classic NES titles into fully 3D environments. Now, you can make profiles for your favourites.
The people working on RPCS3 sure do some amazing work, this PlayStation 3 emulator is truly the stuff of dreams for game preservation and another big title is now playable.
In an announcement, the Libretro / RetroArch mentioned how the Libretro / RetroArch organization on GitHub was attacked by hackers and they managed to do quite a bit of damage.
It seems a very exciting development will be coming to the next release of the PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3.
RetroArch is practically the go-to for all your emulation needs under one roof and the project just release the latest major upgrade with RetroArch 1.9.0.
The quest for better emulation is never quite done, it seems. The open source PS2 emulator saw its first major stable release in years a few months ago and since then more exciting stuff has been under development.
