Another completely online NES emulator

I don’t know if this post will help or hurt Nintendo’s efforts with the Virtual Console because I’m having too much damn fun this morning playing NES titles in an online emulator to care.

Another NES online emulator has joined the ranks of, and it’s pretty slick. It offers multiple languages, although the majority of the games posted so far are in English. That didn’t stop me from trying to play Shadowgate in French, however.

Question is, ROMS are *ahem* not so legal, so could an informed reader tell me how this and stays afloat given Nintendo’s track record for coming down hard on these kinds if things?

UPDATE: This may be older news, but I’m an older, slower gamer. So there.
