All I know is back in the day when I was on irc and another forum the no$ guy was present and he had to be the biggest egomaniacal jackass I've seen next to some of the mame team squatters of all time. He would always swear it to be free except for developers wanting the tools and then changed it, shot his mouth off and well it got pirated hard out of spite. I still have the stolen copy, even if it was $5 it was principle not to pay.
That other you ran the last Castlevania game on I'm surprised did so well. Maybe they got their heads out of their asses and started optimizing and not just adding fluff features (it all trees and IdeaS kept doing that junk.) It was so bad my poor 256MB radeon and quadcore PC wouldn't run either of them full speed. I have a faster laptop than it now with a nicer card in it, may have to look but I don't do much with DS anymore with the 3DS around as much of the library I just never cared for.
