Buy games with money.



Or if you're a pirate just google for nsp's and xci's and install them via usb.
I do mostly. But I like to try before I buy and also need it for updating.

start buying games with this stuff called money
If the product is worth buying then I’ll buy it. But I’m so sick of paying for a game that the only way too find out it is garbage is too play it. And no reviews aren’t good enough.

Pff...GBA community is full of hypocrites playing the nice guys who support the industry and if you say anything piracy related there will be a couple of douchebags like this @sudeki300 to give you the "Buy your shit" speech...

Funny enough this is my main resource for keeping updated with piracy/homebrew stuff related to the switch and the only reason I've joined this community.

The scene stays alive but a new front end must be created. But are a lot of website providing those files coming from HBG.

not really sure what you mean by douchebag as you know nothing about me, it makes me laugh how people expect to get games or services for absolutely nothing, as soon as a service ends you expect someone or something else to just drop in your lap to keep supplying. have you ever donated to hbg shop? or just leech off the service, that's why it's closing due to too many people not giving back to the community.

The way you replied him, implies certain level of arrogance which I despise on a community, nevertheless I never used HBG or JITS or whatever...

I rely on scene releases and private trackers...and yeah I've donated to plenty of sites that I'm a member, you guys need to understand that some people piracy for fun others really piracy because they don't have money to afford it.

The closing isnt related to people not donating, although youre right that it is related to peoples attitudes.

Most (non scene) releases on private trackers are still from hbg. Probably the large majority of ggn switch uploads are sourced from hbg.

Yeah I know you from over there... even though I download my stuff through .torrents and not HBG so why should I donate to them?

Well i would say you should donate because getting those games requires a community effort. Youre benefitting from the donations of other people like myself, and if you contribute back then everyone else in the scene can benefit from your contribution. But thats just my opinion, do with it what you will.

Well, I really rely 99,9% on scene releases, maybe now after everything that happened and not seeing they coming back so soon which made me go after other sources and found some shady sites, that have files way before GGn, hell even stuff I'm uploading to TL is getting xUploaded fo GGn so yeah, without the scene GGn is just good for retention maybe I should think about giving you guys a contribution.

Damn this is really bad news, I didn't know anyone else was arrested aside the 3 person mentioned in the DOJ indictment and even though iirc they are all already on bail...That's what happens when u put all ur eggs in the same basket... scene took a hit I could never saw it coming.
