Nintendo DS owners know that games can be stored in memory cards rather than buy original game cartridges. Saves you money right? This is the beauty of gadgets like the Nintendo DS. Now, once an owner gets one the next question one faces is what games to get.
DS downloads is a good place to start for all your DS needs. It’s got reviews of games, tips and warnings on DOs and DONTs, plus a whole lot of other DS related articles. The owner of the site really placed in a great effort to put up a good resource site for DS users.
I even found one useful article that must never be ignored: that 85% of all free Nintendo DS downloads are infected with malicious code and adware. Curious? Read on and check out the site …

I finally got to play a Mario game in my PSP and it is Nintendo 64’s Mario. But the ROM games need an N64 emulator that would work in PSP. Luckily, a certain group created an N64 emulator for the PSP called Daedalus 64. It is open source that also works in Windows.
Once you finish downloading Daedalus, installing it is a piece of cake. Extract the compressed file place the extracted folder in the /PSP/GAMES folder of your PSP’s memory stick.
The Daedalus folder should have a ROMS/ folder where you can place all N64 ROM games there. The games are not very big. I got my Mario game at only 8MB. Very small.
I have not experienced any lagging when I played it. In fact, it was pretty fast.
