Forums: Index > Watercooler > DS Emulator?

ALright, so, I don't have a DS, but I REALLY want the new Golden Sun game (even though I wish Felix had gotten the immortality, as Isaac is annoying) and I was wondering if there was actually a WORKING DS emulator, and where could I get that... THANK YOU!!!

Different DS emulators seem to try different approaches to emulate the same ROMs, because DS games are complex enough that there is no one perfect emulator like VisualBoy Advance is for GBA games. The two I've tried are No$GBA, which sacrifices emulation features like save states, turbo speed, and window size for emulation that doesn't bog down, and Desmume, which is the exact opposite in all those ways. Simply google these names to find them.
BTW, the physics of the ending scene concerning the power of the Golden Sun seem to be that when your body's absorbed part of the purified essence of an element, you gain bolstered power and much longer life, and that absorbing portions of all four of the purified essences of these elements gives you actual immortality and the power to do anything. All four of these essences combine into one beam that bathes Mt. Aleph's peak, and anyone standing in the path of it would receive the power of all four essences at once. As a result of the Wise One's advance prediction, though, Isaac has one quarter of the power of the Golden Sun - the Mars-aligned portion - which makes him stronger and probably might make him live longer too, but not so much that he is really even aware of it during the ending. Whereas Alex is *nearly* immortal and has bolstered powers that are *nearly* like a physical god because he has the other three quarters of the Golden Sun, but he's missing that last crucial quarter.
