    Newbie to R4/NDS gaming

    I have ordered a R4 and a Kingston 1GB (Hopefully JP! >_>; ) off Trademe (eBay for NZ for these outside of Oceania)

    Aaaaaaand I am not sure what I should be putting on the R4 apart from the 1.08 Kernel.

    Any recommendations? ;D

    If anyone says pokemon, I will shoot you :

    If you want a game to develop both your skills and love for ds,

    then play FFF Chocobo tales, seems like a kids game huh [​IMG]

    not a chance, most hard core gamers are struggling to complete this 100%,

    and it has lots of good elements including a rather addictive card game multilayer,

    cus the problems with awesome classic games like mario cart is you don't use the touch screen

    and seeing you new to all of this its important you get used to the touch screen.

    hope i've helped [​IMG]

    yeah, i have been tempted to buy a R4 off Trademe (nz like ebay, not really but kind of) but still a tad iffy because of the price. Did you order the one with the bundled micro sd card? if so I would be interested to know whether it is the Japanese Kingston micro sd.

    Personally i would reccommend
    -Mario Kart
    -Elite Beat Agents
    -Final Fantasy III (kinda crap, but i liked it)
