The scene has been through things like this before. It isn't the end of the world. I guess no one was around when Megaupload got taken down back in 2012 and some other file hosting services like (The original) Rapidshare which was going downhill before it shutdown anyway. We lost a lot of ISOs and other games when that happened since everyone depended on it. I remember when everyone was pissed that they could not get their own files and backups off of there that they uploaded after that happened.

Oh and by the way, Nintendo didn't threaten Vale, Vale asked Nintendo permission for Dolphin to be on steam and they said no. I have no idea why on earth would one attempt to put it on steam of all places. All this overexposer of emulators is one of the big things that lead to all of this trouble to begin with. I remember back then when people didn't go around blabbing about emulating games to randoms out there which is dumb to me plus it was more taboo back then anyway to do so. I heard people on places like twitter bragging about playing switch games on their PC to angry hardcore Nintendo fans who don't like to hear about people pirating Nintendo games. Reemember, lockpick_PCM was reported to Nintendo by one of these crazed fans who bragged about it getting taken down on twitter to help stop pirates from playing TOTK early. Why is it a shock they were going to get looked into? I bet many people were reporting Yuzu this and Yuzu that to Nintendo on a regular basis I imagine, though this is all speculation on my part since Nintendo very likely has been waiting for the right moment to strike at them by using the circumvention argument which is a no-no thanks to the DCMA along other allegations that were seen on the lawsuit doc.

I mean, its going to be alright. We will move on like always. I been on the internet long enough to see crap like this happen time and time again. This is just apart of the cycle of things. That is all I have to say.

It depends on what you want to keep, but I'll say that's pretty good for the six generation and anything below.
All GB,GBC and GBA, N64, NES, SNES, Master System and MegaDrive take very little space, about 30 GB for all of that.

Unless the game was released on multiple discs/cartridges or whatever which are very few:
GameCube games are up to 1.5 GB
Wii goes from very low like 400MB to 5,6,7 GB
PS2 is up to 4.7 GB
PS1 about 700 MB
DreamCast I don't remember frankly, I'll say about 1GB, same for PSP
XBOX I don't know because PCSX2 is way ahead of Xemu.

PS3, 360 and Wii U are a whole different story that could go from I don't know even as low as 400MB for some Wii U and 30,40 GB for some PS3 games.
