    My SCDSTwo is on its way! I'm going to have everything setup on a micro SD to plug in as soon as it arrives.

    What are some good GBA games for me to try out?

    I have all the Rayman, Wario Ware, Namco, LoZ, Kirby games, etc. I don't like Pokemon.


    Any other games?


    Thanks!

    Try the Castlevania and Mario games.

    Try the sticky above. It's all there. You won't get better recommendations.

    Definitely Mother 3.
    I also like Megaman Battle Network (3 is a good one), Golden Sun, Donkey Kong Country, Fire Emblem, and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

    Wario Land 4 is a must (and COMPLETELY different from WarioWare)

    Crazy chase is an interesting isometric platformer.

    thats all i got right now.

    Abyss of the Horizon
    MegaMan Battle Networks 1-6;although 3,5, and 6 are the best(I recommend White version for BN3,Team Protoman for BN5, and Cybeast Falzar for BN6 [Honestly,why make two versions?? [​IMG] ])

    hahhahaha. Those are my favorite mmbn games too. I even prefer white, protoman, and falzar. That is crazy. My favorite one is probably 5 though. I just love all the new characters. Playing as protoman is awesome, but magnetstyle, searchstyle, and napalm style are really awesome.

    Since you are playing on a scds 2 the emulator doesn't work great on all games. the castlevania games are good, the megaman battle network games are good but some are a little slow and i think some don't save. super mario bros 3 doesn't work at all and i haven't been able to find a fix for it. I don't think either of the golden sun titles are playable because of speed issues.
    The ones i like to play on my scds 2 (because they run well) are kirby nightmare in dreamland, pokemon, donkey kong country, final fantasy tactics advance, final fantasy III (i think it works fine), metroid games, and alien hominoid (fun to pick up and play).

    My top 3 recommendations would be Final Fantasy 6 Advance, Final Fantasy 4 Advance, and Ninja 5-0. Two great RPGs and one VERY solid platformer. I keep going back to these games time and time again.

    Mother 3, Fire Emblem, the Final Fantasy remakes/ports, the Fire Emblem games, and the three Castlevanias. I'd recommend Golden Sun 1 & 2, but they're unplayable on the DSTwo. They're still must plays though, so if you have some free time, play them on an emulator on a PC.
