    A little about my background:

    I grew up with PlayStation and Sega simply because that's what my older brothers and cousins all played. Never been exposed to Nintendo games until recently.

    I want to go through as much of the Nintendo Library as I can, which is why I am choosing to buy a DS2 over the other flash carts, since it can emulate GBA and SNES games.

    Here are my concerns and questions:

    1. How solid are emulators? Can I at least play the majority of the games listed on there? Can I legit play most games from GBC, GBA, NES, SNES, DS, all on DS2?

    2. Reliability. I know playing all these great games will take a long time to finish. I have the time. It will be my only gaming console for a long time(other than PC). How reliable are these cards? If I take good care of it, will it last me years?

    3. The reason I'm buying a 3DS XL instead of a DS is for future proof reasons. Am I able to do all the setup on a fresh 3DS XL with a fresh DS2?

    4. Does any MicroSD card work? I'm looking to buy a 32GB one because I want every game possible with with me where ever I go. I will literally get every game that is half interesting.

    5. Where is the most trusted place to buy? I really don't want to go through having being sent a fake or a faulty cart. Which are the most "official" stores?

    6. Is the DS2 team that updates this card finished supporting it? Is it likely that they will support the DS2 through the 3DS generation?

    Thank you so much for reading! Pretty excited to dip into the awesome world of Nintendo!
