    Ok, we all know that GBAtemp is the best resource for DS news and info, but dare I ask what other sites people use?

    Ive been out of the loop for a while and have lost my Favorites folder which had the majority of my DS related links.

    The last games I remember being releaesed were about numbers 700-750, have I missed anything amazing while ive been away?

    Thanks all.

    Custom Robo Arena
    Spectrobes
    and maybe, Diddy Kong Racing, depends what your into, gets boring after a while though [​IMG]
    Hotel Dusk
    Phoenix Wright Justice for All

    I think they're after 700.

    And GBAtemp is the best!

    There is no alternative!

    Onto games erm some that havent been mentioned...

    Puzzle Quest DS is bloody brilliant, as is Theme Park, Garfields Nightmare wasnt bad, some people liked Wario Master of Disguise, New Zealand Story is nice

    Starting at 750 and going onwards, this was mainly region dupes and a few not especially noteworthy Japanese games:
    OK 735 but Castlevania - Portrait of Ruin US release.
    0782 Hiite Utaeru DS Guitar - M-06
    0820 Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney - Justice For All (if you did not play it as Gyakuten saiban 2)
    0823 Hotel Dusk - Room 215 (if you like phoenix wright chances are you will like this)

    0836 Diddy Kong Racing DS, actually not played it yet myself but it apparently does not hold much to mario kart or it's N64 forebear.
    0838 New Zealand Story Revolution, most people remember new zealand story and this is an update to it
    Several EU dupes: contact, magical starsign
    0847 Lunar Knights
    0848 Winning Eleven Pro Evolution Soccer 2007, not my thing but hey

    0858 Death Note - Kira Game
    0856 Bleach DS 2nd - Kokui Hirameku Requiem
    Those two are not especially noteworthy for me but to each their own and some people enjoyed them.

    0864 Sim City DS
    0870 Super Robot Taisen W, big robots meets advance wars and shining force, what could be better.
    Nothing that interesting follows (some region dupes mainly) but Wario - Master of Disguise may be of interest.

    Theme Park DS also dropped as did Konami Classics Series - Arcade Hits
    Bomberman Land Touch! and Gunpey DS also appeared which pretty much rounds off the releases. My list is sure to upset a few people but hey.

    Homebrew wise, a fair few things happened: SnesemulDS getting very good probably being the biggest, a few new moonshell versions, new SCUMMVMDS and several noteworthy homebrew apps/games, I will leave you to fish through the news posts.

    GBATemp generally is a good news source, as is lurking on IRC. But if I want to go further afield GBADev seems to be the meeting place of most devs so new alphas get posted there, Drunken coders is also not bad, DCEmu also does a good line in GBA and DS homebrew.

    Oh and read up on DLDI if you missed it as it is a very important concept these days.
    Homepage although I suggest you search the forum for some posts

    If I can't find it here I usually use http://www.gbatemp-alternative.net,
    you can also find hentai versions of the GBAtemp members there and also free food. Some people also get there ROMs from there. It's awesome!

    "Alternatives to GBAtemp?"

    How dare you! The internet evolves around GBAtemp. Its what the internet was made for.

    www.gbadev.org is good though.

    This guy just started a Dutch NDS Scene site. I'm moderating it a bit, it's not yet really pumping.
    It's good up-to-date though.

    That thing isn't an alternative. It's a carbon copy. I feel sorry for the owners and the members.
    We've been watching them for ages, they've been copying our news using two useful key combinations, CTRL+C and CTRL+V (see what I mean?). They also copied almost every single idea we've had, they even copied the releases layout, everything.
    The owners created it just so they could receive free sample kits.
