This thread of mine was initially about common interests and DS games, but because I accidentally said some things which relate to pirating and roms, this thread of mine got much more controversial then I imagined it would.

I will no longer be active on this peculiar thread because I will be focusing on my new one. I also have deleted any messages I said on this thread because I felt uncomfortable with the messages I said here.

This new thread of mine that I made somewhere else should hopefully replace the purpose of my old one successfully, but without any problems or controversy.

I didn't have a whole bunch of DS games, but I had a few I really liked.
Mario Kart DS and New Super Mario Bros were probably among my most-played.
The Mario Vs. Donkey Kong games - Mini Land Mayhem. Spent a lot of time making levels on that.
Lego Star Wars, The Complete Saga. I recall playing with one of my friends on this a bit.
Scribblenauts.
Oh, a signature. What to put in a signature.

please don't overtly talk about piracy!

I was (and still am) quite a Pokemon nerd, but if there's one thing I learned as an emudev is that there are a ton of great games out there besides Pokemon. There are a ton of people who only use emulators to play Pokemon once again, and while this is fine, they're missing out on a lot. Dealing with all sorts of issues with different games opened by eyes a bit in the regard (for Wario Ware to give an example). Also Pokemon popping up so often is also a bit tiresome…

And there's this stupid Pokemon freeze which needs to be fixed and it annoys me so much arg! arg! arg!

In general if you need recomendation on which games to play for any system I can recommend /v/'s Recommended Games wiki (it seems like for every mega ton of trash something worthwhile comes from 4chan)

I'm gonna stand by Phoenix Wright trilogy and I'll add to it Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, because I absolutely love that series. And has a killer soundtrack.

Of course, I'll also stand by every DS Pokemon game, including Ranger series and Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. In the same genre as the main games, Digimon World Dusk/Dawn, which I think are far more complicated than Pokemon, but hella lot of fun. To that effect, I'll also recommend Fossil Fighters. Really good, underrated Pokemon-like game, which sadly didn't translate all that great on 3DS.

There are also couple of Megaman ports, such as Megaman Battle Network 5: Double Team DS, which is a direct port of GBA versions (and have some compatibilities with GBA cartriges) and Megaman Zero Collection, which include all four Zero games from GBA. Both ports include some DS bonuses.

you did it again, don't admit you're pirating and don't talk about pirate sites. Contrary to popular belief independent emulation and piracy are two separate issues. And for this to stay this way we need to keep it clean.

It's an open secret that emulators and piracy are intertwined, but we can't endorse piracy as an emulator, which means we can't give people a platform who directly link to piracy.

Pushing all questions of preservation, practicality and moral besides, the only legal way to access ROMs is to dump them from your private collection of games. You don't need to pretend you're doing it, just keep the acquisition of your ROM files out of the picture.

1. So maybe I can talk about the DS games I like on this website as long I do not speak about topics, related to the P word or R word?

there's not much more to say. You don't need to say "the p word", it's not a slur, you don't need to pretend it doesn't exist (the same even more for ROM as it's a completely neutral word as long it's not in a sentence with "where can I find free romzz" ;) ). Just don't mention places which host ROMs they don't have the legal right to host or admit you're visiting them and use common sense.

2. I would be interested to learn more from you about how independent emulation and the P word are different types of issues. Could this be the reason why most emulation sites create engines for games but not actually provide stuff, related to the R word?


yes. On some shady sides you might see emulator download links right next to ROMs (downloading software from a secondary source is always a bad idea anyway), but anybody who developes an emulator and doesn't want to receive a cease and desist letter doesn't distribute or link to files which they don't have the right to.

3. You seem to be a pretty open person who likes to try out different games besides the usual popular titles, so I would be interested to know what DS games you like too?


Unfortunately I have to disappoint you here, as I don't really have a sophisticated taste for video games (half of the time I'm playing Tetris :) ). I spent a surprisingly small amount of time in actually playing video games and I haven't really played many DS games besides Tetris DS.

why do you need to constantly make these big overcomplicated posts with no linebreaks? it's kind of painful to read.

to be fair, I'm not that big of a pokemon fan either. heartgold was my first DS game and first pokemon game though, so I couldn't help recommending it.
