Golden Sun
« on: October 14, 2007, 11:45:00 AM »
Has anyone played this fantastic game for the GBA?

I loved it since it's first release, and i still hold it dear ^^

My favourite character is Ivan of course, since he would totally blow you away :D

yeah hehe, brings back memories golden sun. the first one was alright finding all the djinns was annoying though, it meant that you had to go everywhere to find where they are. but it was all worth it in the end since it follows on in golden sun 2.

dont really have a favourite character maybe garnet or jenna.

...Well, I had the first game and I still have the second one. (=I sold the first one to my friend. He still has it, I think.)

My favorite characters in the first game were Isaac, Mia, Felix, Alex and Saturos. In the second game they are Felix, Piers, Isaac, Mia and Alex.

That was such a good game... a testament of how much RPG you could squeeze into just two games.  I feel guilty, though, I never was able to beat Dullahan on Hard mode without resorting to the dreaded "Djinn Summon Rush".

That being said, I DID get all the secret super weapons like the Tisiphone Edge.

Wonderful games.
Hope a sequel could hit Wii some day.

I havn't gotten the supe... wait i think i have <.<
Dullahan was fun to beat ^^

Even so, Camelot said in an interview that they had to make a new Golden Sun, not because they had to do one, because they wanted to. Nintendo even asked them ^^

I almost DIED OF GLEE when I read that. GS is one of my favourite RPGs ever.

Well, GS is very unconventional for an RPG since you never actually fight the main villain.  I did enjoy the "Orochi" part though, once I realized it was a recreation of the legend of Susanoo and all.

I would KILL for Camelot and Namco doing a Golden Sun crossover with a "Tales of" game.  Maybe with "Tales of the World", which was a crossover Tales game with all the heroes fighting together ^_^

There's actually never a "main" villain.  Only Alex who might become something similar in the future <.<

Alex is the main villain.  He's the magnificent bastard that plays everyone against each other for his own gain.  You just don't realize that until the end.  Of course, that sequence when the Wise One asks for Isaac to show him the Mars Star, which we ALL forget about, shoots a hole through the Mercury Adept's evil scheme.

I didn't even notice that scene's significance until my third playthrough (one "playthrough" is both games)

I played this few years ago. Just remembered the opening scene of their village flooding and I totally forgot what happen next. Maybe its time to revisit it again...

AAAH! GOLDEN SUN FANS! XD

I've never met anyone else who has ever played these games!

I LOVE THEM! They are so fun and the characters are great! I love Jenna and of course the baddies were awesome!

Man now I wanna go play them again! Haven't done so in years...
