Zophar used to be the defacto standard when it came to emu news. I remember I used to visit that site everyday after work.
When most classic consoles where emulated I think many people got bored because there where no challenges anymore and they realized old games sucked bad in comparison to GTAIII.
Now the emu scene is abit different, we have emulators for consoles and emulators for phones and PDA's, so there is a lot of new scenes. I would be happy if there was a Zophar site again that could run news updates everyday on all emulator scenes.
