    I have copies of every rom I've downloaded on my computer, so when I finish a game I just copy the save onto the computer and delete the game off my card.

    Yeah I just archive them in "Good," "Decent," and "Excellent". I delete the horrible ones that make you snap your hinge.

    I keep the roms in an external hard drive and keep the save files in my main hard drive. I only put games on my microSD card IF im willing to play them, even though its 4gb, i keep only around 10 games at once. Rest is music, homebrew and video.

    Off topic:
    beautifulbeast, would you consider the games 4/10 or 6/10 beaten? Why list them on your GAMES BEATEN if they're not yet complete(10/10)?

    not really though,being a good friend and all. but you should tell them get copies themselves.
    if you downloaded it yourself, they surely can too can they?

    I'm 70% sure that's his evaluation on the quality of the game, or, for the dumb bunnies out there, his score that he gives the game. I don't know though.
