Grasshopper Manufacturer’s 2012 satirical hack-and-slash game, Lollipop Chainsaw, was one of the last comically sexy games aimed at the mainstream Western audience before the censorious efforts by the Leftist SJWs took over and all games had to be sanitized of sexy content, fun, and crass humor. 2012 was also the year where Feminist Frequency really took off, and the SJW game journalists made it their goal to demonize lascivious depictions of females in games, and to start coercing cultural opinions into the cookie jar of political correctness.
Anyway, if you want to dabble in the cultural greatness of the yesteryears when women were allowed to be depicted as sexy and dangerous in media, and games were allowed to be fun and not just poor agitprop imitations of equally insufferable Hollywood blockbusters, you can actually play Lollipop Chainsaw right now on any 4K-ready GPU via the RPCS3 PS3 emulator.
RPCS3 developers Nekotekina and kd-11 posted up a video showcasing the gameplay of Lollipop Chainsaw running without any crashes, and with the cinematics working, and on the ultra-HD resolutions without any graphical artifacts or hanging. You can check out the video below.
As pointed out in the Reddit thread, the RPCS3 emulator could previously play Lollipop Chainsaw but the game suffered from hang-ups and crashing, especially after the third stage. With the latest version of the RPCS3, the game no longer crashes and the 4K mode works as intended.
I was never a fan of Lollipop Chainsaw, but if you enjoyed the simplistic hack-and-slash gameplay and raunchy humor, you can play the game right now on your mid-ranged PC. Yes, a mid-range PC can play the game decently enough at 720p and 60fps.
If Lollipop Chainsaw isn’t your jam, the RPCS3 crew also confirmed that more than 33% of the PS3’s library is currently playable on the RPCS3 emulator.
According to the compatibility list, 40% of the games can be played to some degree in-game but either performance issues or glitches prevent them from being played through from start to finish.
The real snazzy part about the advancements being made on the emulator is that there are now more playable games via the RPCS3 than there are games that are not playable beyond the loading screen or the intro. So the team is making massive headway in turning their emulator into a very viable alternative for owning a PS3, nearly stultifying any need to actually own the hardware.
Now if you’re interested in playing PS3 games on your PC, there’s no parlous measures you’ll have to overcome or trudge through to make it happen. Just follow the instructions and download a copy of the RPCS3 from over on the official RPCS3 website and you’ll be good to go.
