Hallelujah flash carts

March 27, 2007


There is nothing as satisfying as not having to buy games. Spending your hard earned cash on a game thats almost 5 years old for a system that is soon to be discontinued. Why spend your days searching every awful gamestop or browsing ebay looking for that perfect copy of Pinball Tycoon when you can find a pal with the rom to dL for free??? Also i dont’ know about you but i despise the idea of carrying around a pocketful of those rather pointy gba cartridges.

Except maybe for Drill Dozer, that game is fantastic! and the cart has rumble, which is so this generation! Yes flash carts are rather expensive, but when you think about how much money you’ll be saving in the end not buying all those cartridges (they run from $6 to about $18 used) plus the space you’ll save in that room in your parents basement(you know what i’m talking about).

    Anyway, I indeed have been wanting to get one of those ROM catridges for a while now, mostly for homebrew applications for the GBA… which one do you recommend??

    for gba i have the EFA linker II, i have a mac and it even works. its 512mb but you can only have 32mb in the nor part (or whatever its called) basically you can load up a ton of games into it. but to play one you move it to this other part of the card while its in the gba. takes about 30 sec. i don’t really know much about any of them. i know i wanted one that was the same size as the gba cart, didn’t want anything sticking out.

    My girlfriend and I have a pair from this manufacturer:

    We’re both very happy with ours. They play DS and GBA games (The latter will even work on the GAME BOY PLAYER!)
    I even have Monkey Island 2 running on mine via SCUMM for DS.


    Folax. If you haven’t already done so, do yourself a favor and download Rythm Tengoku. You’ll thank me.

    There´s just no talking me out of downloading games. These companies make a lot more money than i do, and they have plenty of other bums willing to fork over those paychecks. My broke ass chooses not to buy DS games if they are free.

    If, hypothetically speaking, one wished to run unsecured applications or game ROM images on one’s Nintendo DS, they might like to try the R4DS or M3 Simply, which are brand names for essentially the same product: a single DS cart which has a slot for a microSD card. The only problem is that you’ll need a GBA/Slot-2 flashcart to run GBA roms.

    Well, not illegal in Canada. I’m glad I got an R4 DS this week, I’ve spent around 800 on DS games….imported ones too. Quite awesome, it is.
