Shouldn't the GBA releases page be taken down by now?

    Lets face it, it's incredibly unlikely that there will be another release at all. It would save great ammonts of memory.

    It might be an idea to remove it from the frontpage, but removing everything would, of course, be stupid.

    By the way, we can probably expect some more releases. Even the GBC, GB, NES etc. get some new releases occasionally.

    Sure, just last year a Sudoku game for the NES was released on an actual NES cart, it's likely that is has been dumped.

    Yeah, like whizz said, there are games released for older systems. Just not very often and they are usually difficult to find unless you order them directly. I remember a little uproar last year when the Dreamcast got a new game, most of that was because Sega is just a software company now... but hey, software for their old system.


    Anyway.......

    Even the Atari 2600 gets new carts occasionally, but I do reckon that the GBA releases should at least be at the bottom.

    Perhaps we could have a "GBAtemp Recommends", where once a month we'll poll 5 games and the winner features on the front page in place of the last official release. Maybe get some lesser known games played more.

    I'd hate to see the GBA part gone as that little handheld is what made this forum, its part of GBAtemps heritage.

    There should always be an option to turn it on again [​IMG]

    By the way, the GBAtemp Recommends sounds good [​IMG] We just need somebody with enough time [​IMG]

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Yeah, I was just thinking that, or at least just for the front page. It seems pointless having it above Wii games as well, at least move it below those.
    I loved the GBA as much as anyone, but it's pointless keeping it on the front.

    No, GBA Release section doesn't take up much space.
    The list and useful and pertinent to the website.

    I'm all for it [​IMG] If you'd do it, you'd already have one reader [​IMG] Seriously, I think a lot of people would like this. There are a lot of people who never had a GBA. They buy a Slot-2 card now, and don't have a clue what to play. I'm not one of those people, but it would still be nice to find some new classics.

    By the way, it would probably be a good idea to have different categories. For example, on RPG, one platformer, one TBS, one Puzzle-game and one Action-game.

    I am for it and if any help was needed with it I would be willing to give some of my free time to help.

    I think that should be its own thing.

    Things are in the works with the display of the portal, but not immediately.

    And don't forget the odd HK Pirate ROMs every now and then. Google for "ShenZhen Nanjing Technology", for example.

    It's good to see that long after the console has died, pirates and hobbyists manage resurrect it every now and then.

    I would like it if the GBA section on the homepage would display random roms or like Hadrian suggested GBAtemp Recommends [​IMG]
