This is what exactly why people here in AUS don't want to pay for things since we get over charged compared to the rest of the world.

$1 isn't much of a problem but sometimes the extra can be hundreds of dollars

Yea like games and new consoles, phones as well. Its horrible, even worse when you see people actually want to tax importing just so we are forced to buy locally and pay higher prices.

It's ok, we are just discussing,but I love all rpgs,just have no idea which ones work (except FF and chrono trigger games which I played on every console)

HugMeTender

I am not complaining, just saying the facts. Mupen is cheaper but great.GBAoid,SNESoid are perfect emulators.MyBoy cheaper, plays almost every game. It's subjective. To you this might be the best emulator, to others may not.8 bucks here is a daily pay for most people, so yeah..
Good rpgs are plentyful on the ds! Apart from the 4-5 final fantasy that are on it, you can try Radiant history, SUIKODEN, Disgaea, Infinite Space, Fire emblem and Dragon Quest, Shin Megami Tensei (I think there are two on the ds) or the world ends with you, etc etc! Those should keep you busy for a while!

As for Drastic being the best and all that, an emulator is just as good as the console it emulates, and personally the ds isn't my favourite system, it seems a bit of a silly claim to make. It definitely is the best DS emulator though.

Just so we're clear: $9 AUD over $8 USD isn't an Australia tax, that's (roughly) what the current exchange rate is.

agree ; just look im a final fantazy and chrono trigger big fan and i want to play those two games on my phone i just go to google play and buy them , but wait 14.19$ for ffIII what ?? and chrono trigger 12.16 , that make 26.35$ :shock:

after thinking you can see that the best thing is give 7.99 $ which is 6.99 euro for me and play all my favorite rpg games with more options on our Drastic emulator :ds:

why people are so stupid to realise that :mrgreen:

Because people had been used to the notion that emulators are free. All emulators for pc that I know are basically free under some gpl lisence (vm stuff excluded) so they have this thinking that it carries over to anything ie mobiles.

They shouldn't think that though because if they look at most other emulators on mobile, they are paid with the exception of a few like nds4droid which they cannot make paid I think.
