    Just curious about everyone here who's a flashcart owner (Most of us [​IMG]). Have you gotten any retail games since getting yours? Why? Was there any game you just felt absolutely compelled to own a copy of? Have you bought any games simply because of incompatibility with your flashcart?

    ps. please don't vote if you don't own a flashcart!

    Same here. I only buy games which are worth the money. Games that have little to zero effort will not get my money.

    It's unfortunate that there are so many DS games worth playing but not buying.

    But I assume most of you have bought trauma center/phoenix wright/mario kart/new super mario/castlevanias/warioware/ouendan/eba
    and that's all that matters.

    I feel sorry for anyone that had to buy that's so raven.

    I've had the supercard since the beginning when it started to play DS roms. 32mb roms only and you had to save to a DS game with the same save size [​IMG] I still buy the games but refuse to pay full price. Not just on nintendo games, any games. They are far too over priced.

    I get them when I see them in the shops second hand at a good price. I also look at websites to see if they have any special offers on the games. Buy 2 for £25 or somewhere like amazon that sometimes sell the xbox games for about £3 each new. I do buy the odd new game, but it has to be a game I really want.

    I only buy games that I absolutely love and play all the time. And because I'm the type of person who gets tired of games real quickly, I dont buy games much. That's also thanks to me getting my M3. Now I can try out as many games as I want and if I cant play it more than 3 days in a row then I aint buying it.

    I'm going to attempt to get a DS on Tuesday (yay!). For the moment I'm buying games (under RRP or second-hand), but being the owner of an old flashcart that (I think) can only hold 1 DS game at a time I don't think it's fair to actually vote.

    And when Tesco.com are selling Trauma Center for the ridiculously cheap price of £9.97 I'm certainly not complaining [​IMG] UK buyers should definitely check out that site, they've got lots of DS titles under £20 on there.

    I bought Phoenix Wright AFTER I completed it on the flashcart which is something I never did before.

    I never bought a single DS game before or after. Me and friend were talking about getting DS's(es?) and flashcarts for several months. Then one day I finally decided to just do it and ordered both at the same time.

    I voted no, I haven't bought any DS games since I got my flash cart, but only because I just got the thing, and it'll be a little while before I have any money again.

    i bought mario superstars for the mini games and then got a superkey+supercard shortly after.
    after flashing my nds it then became my sleep mode cart
    then i realized that i never use sleep mode
    and i sold it.

    i almost bought castlevania por
    and i bought ff III however i played it for a few minutes and thought it was crap so i traded it in for mario. playing it again now on the flashcart i realize how stupid of a decision that was for i would probabally still own that game if i gave it chance.

    I voted 5+ since I still buy all games worth the money.

    My games so far:
    Animal Crossing: Wild World
    Mario 64 DS
    Mario Kart DS
    Metroid Prime Hunters
    Nintendogs
    Star Fox Command
    Zoo Keeper (my sleep mode card [​IMG]) (Eurotrash release)

    All my games are imported except for Zoo Keeper. The price of the games in Europe is just too high and releases too slow [​IMG]. The ugly case design in Europe doesn't help either.

    I will soon import Final Fantasy III, but don't really know where to buy games after Lik-Sang got shut down.
