    I just recently picked one up from a freind, he barely used it and he gave me 10 brand unopened games too...

    Anyway I was just wondering who else still has one? Whats your opinion on it? What games are good?

    Anyone that can hook me up with emulators for it?

    I still use my n-gage(original not the qd) as my everyday phone lol, I even bought better mobile phones after it, but I just keep on returning to it. I just love it for sms.
    As to games, I would say rayman a and pathway to glory are pretty decent [​IMG]

    Glimmerati is a great overhead racing game. Out of all the game for my QD that one got the most playtime.

    My mate used to have one but he hated it! Mind you it isn't too bad for emulation

    You can find most of the emulators for megadrive, gameboy etc from google (I would give you directly links but don't want to be told off for supplying roms!)

    @decept

    Love the pic for your myspace background! Transformers rule!

    Peace

    Glimmerati I feel was a bit overrated.

    A lot of people say N-gage games were shit, these people probably haven't played most of the games, especially the later titles which were brilliant.

    Warhammer 40,000
    Civilization (amazing version)
    Pathway to Glory
    Pathway to Glory Ikusa Islands
    Call of Duty
    Rayman 3
    Roots: Gates of Chaos (Besst RPG on it)
    Catan
    System Rush
    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Jungle Storm
    Xanadu Next
    King of Fighters: Extreme
    Rifts: Promise of Power
    Snakes (Brilliant free game, basically a 3D snakes)
    High Seize

    A lot of people rate One highly but I think its a crap fighter. I really hope some of these games get converted to other consoles as they were very good. For a system that didn't have much support its games were pretty good.

    The handheld itself I feel was poorly designed, it was the best phone to play mobile games on up until developers decided not to allow their games to be played on it.

    Emulation side was ok, PicoDrive, is very good on it much better than the DS version. GoBoy is a pretty good GBC emulator. fMSX is great for MSX.

    You can download the emulators here:http://www.zophar.net/consoles/ngage.html

    I recommend you sign up to some mobile forums as you can get cracked versions of some emulators.

    I personally played Worms World Party the most, but there are definitely some other great titles out on the N-Gage, Sonic N was pretty good too.

    You can do the free games thing with N-Gage as well btw, in a similar way to R4s and the like.

    Also the fact that the n-gage is built on the Series60 platform means there's a whole host of other extremely cool stuff you can do on it, loads and loads of programs for it.

    yep, ive still got my trusty n-gage qd somewhere

    its an awesome phone imo with loads of good games, if nokia bring out another gaming phone id probably buy it as id rather carry a phone and a gaming station together instead of a DS and a N95.

    i had the first one too, i remember amazing my friends with all the games i stored on a memory card, about 4 of them bought one after that and we used to play fifa and ashen all the time

    ashphalt was a wkd 2 player game too

    the first one was a wkd phone, the only thing missing was an infrared port and camera, it even had a headphone socket so you could plug any earphones in and the sound used to be good quality

    its a shame people slagged it off so much as it was good imo

    well that took me back a few years

    regards

    1gb.

    Another decent thing is that it can also play 3gp files with Realplayer (some use smart movie though) theres loads of 3gp files all over the net and P2P. Do a search for noeman gsm and sign up there, theres some films on that forum, there are better forums though but its not bad to start. Also should have some good emulators too.

    Also try and get hold of a program called FExplorer, its a file managing thing and its much better to install stuff with that than it is with the regular N-gage manager when using MMC cards.

    I sold my n-gage a few months ago. Only games were tony hawks and tomb raider, the first 2 games released. It was capable of ps1 graphics yet they insisted on sticking with games you could play on the GBA. Only good thing about the n-gage was you could download cracked games and copy them to mmc card. You didn't have to hack the n-gage in any other way [​IMG]
