    Hi I tried finding my favourite rom downloading site and it seems to have either gone completely or down temporarily. Does anyone know what has happened to https://www.romuniverse.com/ ?

    Man, I didn't even know about this site till now!
    Howcome they get to take down whole sites rather than just removing Nintendo content?

    I don't see any Sega court cases against these sites for instance..... (I could be wrong of course.) They need to come up with better names in order to stay hidden.

    *chuckling* More roms sites publics are easily take down.

    Good thing that there are better private sites for roms that can't be take down. :)

    Imagine not having all the files you'd need already backed up :rofl2:

    the point of pirating is to not pay money :teach:

    Maybe you shouldn’t pirate stuff in the first place...
