The Libretro Team and other emulators are being ripped off by companies trying to make a quick buck

ElectricPrismIs he implying they are literally selling the emulators at a extra cost beyond the hardware?
AFAIK, some of the libretro cores are ports from emulators that simply cannot be sold, due license. So these shouldn't be shipped with any paid hardware ever.

I love Advance Wars, but 3D is a big con for me when I know it's totally unnecessary (gameplay wise). Plus, it seems to lack many features that Wargroove will have like campaign editor, modding in general and online multiplayer out-of-box (not 1v1 as "free DLC" what the...).

Didn't expect to see this here, but I'm glad it's here. RetroArch and GOG stuff were the main factors behind my smooth transition from Windows to Linux.

In the past, I used to write something like "if you paid for it, you got scammed" in some of my projects that I knew someone would try to sell. I know the same can't be done with these projects, but that was the solution I found back then...

Nowadays, it's how you recognise a game published by Nicalis

I only see this one game from them on steam
What else did they publish ?
1001 Spikes, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (and Afterbirth+), Toribash, VVVVVV and Ikachan for 3DS, along others.

They apparently are known for some overpriced stuff and delays...

Also, if the legends are true, they will keep re-publishing Cave Story until the end of the times.
