    Sorry I'm new to all this Android stuff, I'm getting my Nexus 7 this week and would like to know what it's capable of and what I can do on it so I have some things ready to go when it arrives

    Can you play things like Pokemon Roms on the Nexus 7? I only have a minor amount of experience with emulators and roms to play things like gameboy/nintendo games on my PC

    Any tips or recommendations for gaming?

    Friendly reminder: emulators are great, but game ROMs are illegal and can't be discussed/linked to here.

    To be perfectly blunt. game ROMS are not illegal in any way as long as you own the original game. This can be quoted off of any rom site, or can be found in wikipedia, or a quick google search.

    And since innocence is assumed until guilty, so while specific links may not be posted (as the majority will take them and eat them up) discussion should not be interrupted, as there is a general want for this information by the group of individuals that actually own the games, and simply wish to use emulators to play on other devices. Which is legal.

    To be perfectly blunt, what is legal in the eye of the government is one thing, what the owners of this site decide is up for discussion on their servers is another. He's just asking you to respect the forum rules. You know, the one's you agreed to when you signed up? The one's that say it is illegal to discuss ROMs in the forum. It's bullet point #1.

    " Do not post, link, discuss, or request warez, serials, ROMs, or illegal copies of intellectual property of others. Discussions regarding hardware or software modifications designed to steal service, such as ESN cloning & phone programming modifications are also forbidden in the forums. AC has a zero tolerance policy on such posts."

    Too be even more blunt this doesn't say its illegal too discuss something that is legal in the eyes of the law it says not to discuss illegal activities. And to make anything illegal the owners of AC would have to be a legislative body.

    Dude, whatever.

    These guys give us a free web forum with moderation (so it doesn't devolve into a completely childish reddit website) so we can discuss the topic of android hardware and software. All they ask in return is for us to ignore the ads and obey the rules they have set forth.

    I'm not arguing the notion of government legality for game ROMs or anything like that. I'm just saying that it is clearly marked that they don't want you talking about those topics on their website, and that you shouldn't be surprised if you get an insta-ban as a result of doing it against their wishes.

    Geez, there's umpteen hundred different websites to talk about Game ROMs. Go talk there about them. Once you have an emulator installed on your android device, it isn't like you need "android" specific game ROMs. Yeah, all those sites suck because they are filled with endless sleezy pop-up junk and a lot of unmoderated garbage. Imagine that.

    Oh yeah, you could always host your own website where people would be free to talk about game ROMs at length.... Facts is facts, the people that own this site don't want it talked about. Deal with it.

    To be clear, discussion of game ROMs in the forums is not permitted. We are not going to debate that policy in this thread.
