    Hey guys,

    I really wanted to bring this up. I looked at the downloads section they have over at ds-scene and they almost have 400 Homebrew games extra then this site. SO why do users go here and not ds-scene!? Just a question??

    EDIT: I like Gbatemp because of the quick answers on the forums which = great community. [​IMG]

    GBAtemp is more kickass with exclusive releases, a group of people that grab news quicklike (woot Another World), hosts competitions for prizes, and most of the stuff in the DS-Scene's download section is a mess with duplicates and other files.

    -edit-
    Yeah...and the community too. We all act pro and love poking at each other (except for the noobs).

    We have over 1000 homebrew games in our download section (FileTrip.net), each game is "categorized" to include all versions/revisions, which I believe is unlike DS-Scene's download section which counts each version as a seperate homebrew game entry.

    GBATemp is older...

    GBATemp already had tons of members and active community before DS-scene even existed.
    And with a bigger community comes more sponsors. Which gives the hosts more money to spend on features, prizes, ect...

    Because one is bigger than the other, DS-Scene will always be in Temp's shadow no matter how hard the Scene mods work at collecting homebrews, news, information, ect...
    Temp has 2500+ users a day, Scene has 100 at best?

    Personally I favor DS-Scene (For social/community reasons). But I'm sane enough to admit that GBAtemp has more to offer to more people.

    I prefer DS-Scene, but... my comparison:
    DS-Scene
    - faster release news
    - less noobs

    GBATemp
    - more tutorials/howtos
    - much bigger community

    I must be a Newbie..... Whats 'DS-Scene' ??? [​IMG]








    [​IMG]
    Actually I've been with GBATemp for a long time - because of the help, info & general community 'feel' about it - & although I have popped over to DS-Scene a couple of times (out of curiosity - mind you)... there's just something that doesn't 'feel' right about the site.. but I can't put my finger on what it is

    DS-Scene is indeed faster with releases and they announce cracks and all too, unlike GBAtemp.
    Community here is way better though.

    I like both, but acctually I found Gbatemp more "openmind".. I mean, you can talk about every console. Not only DS (like DS-SCENE). The community is great!. I started to getting used with the Emuforums community (wich sucks)... so when I found this site was.. WOA.. this is great!!!
    Emuforums is like Ds-Scene.... everyone spread shit when someone ask about a rom download link. People in gbatemp dont do that. Much bether and bigger community!!!!!!!!!!!!

    EDIT: I know that asking for download link goes against the rules. I never ask for it. But I hate when everyone goes off-topic when someone ask about it.

    sorry for my atrocius english

    Actually I have never heard of this thing you are calling "DS-Scene".
    So I can't imagine it could be any better than GBAtemp.

    Also, I think GBAtemp has one of the greatest community's on the internets.

    No one really cares about how many downloads are available on a site.
    Only one thing really matters on a site;
    Communism!

    I mean, community! :3

    DS-Scene is a copy of GBAtemp, simple as that.

    They are only faster at posting releases recently, GBAtemp has lacked in this area for some time due to few staff posting releases. I would say we are faster on major releases, as Chanser, granville and I, post them seconds after they pre. Obscure JPN or shovelware releases don't get posted here as quickly as no one cares to post them. Correct me I'm wrong, staff.

    Its probably because GBATemp is full of some of the nicest funniest people on the net. We all get along and its a great community. Thats why I'm still here at least.
