Do you ALWAYS have your laptop with you to use the emulator with? If you travel by train or bus sometimes?

Real DS > Emulator if you actually live in real life, if you're a laptop boy at anytime, an emulator would've been better!

Some games like Pokemon Ranger is based on using the touchscreen to play everytime.

I wonder if you could play with the "touchscreen" swiftly using the cursor?

Lets see, it's way more enjoyable and fun playing on a DS rather then a computer. A DS is handheld, so you can take it anywhere. And well, not everyone has a computer good enough to play a DS emulator at full speed.

emu => less than 100% compability, glitchy, not portable, need high end pc/laptop to get full speed
real DS => actually worth the money

Also, some games such as Last Window require multi-touch at times.
Can't do that on a emulator can you? :|
DS does multi-touch :?
Same question. I didn't know this! You sure? Or do you just have to tap the screen rapidly with two fingers?
There's a part in Last Window where you have to turn off the alarm or something(I think, i myself haven't got to that part yet.), a relative was playing it on a emulator, due to multi-touch i had to transfer the save to my DS and do it there.
You have to hold the glass panel to one side and use another stylus/your finger to turn off the lever.
Apparently the multi-touch is programmed into the game itself.

Yes.

@OP: Not everybody has a strong enough computer that can run DS games. I don't.
Try to play Pokemon Ranger with S capture rank with an emulator. (Record it as a video and show me.)

lol wat you don't need a high end computer to emulate ds game smoothly on an emulator. My low end comp with an Intel E7300 and NVIDIA 8400gs easily runs games flawlessly in term of smoothness. eg pokemon white

The DS can't do multi touch. When you touch two spots on a DS, it records the center point of the two touch points.
Honestly, I know this. And so does GameFAQs. FREAKING GAMEFAQS!!!

Therefore, all you need to do is swiftly flick the middle of the two switches. And are you sure it wasn't Dusk? I know you had to turn on a generator in Dusk, I've forgotten Last Window.

This is my situation:
I love RPGs!, I would like to play every game of each saga (zelda, pokemon, fire emblem, tales of..., etc).
My computer can emulate the NDS but doesn’t have enough power to emulate the Wii.

Since I can’t afford the two consoles (Wii and NDS) I choose the Wii over the DS because I can play DS games on my PC.

I love the concept of portability, but (for me) the only thing that matters is: the game. I want to play all my favorites games, doesn’t matter how (in bed, tv, pc, outside, travelling, bus, etc).

In conclusion, I only buy things that cannot be emulated. It’s really hard to be a gamer and don’t have enough money.
