I LOVE "Golden Sun"!

Wow, I'm glad they did a quick look at this.  I'll comment more when I've actually watched the thing.

Actually interested about this game.

Posted by Crono

I really enjoyed the GBA versions but I never really looked into this DS version... Ryan seems to know quite a bit about the series so that is reassuring.

finally get to watch the bottom half of the screen!? WHAT!?

Posted by IcySandman

YES GOLDEN SUN!!!  My first RPG

Posted by Jeffk38uk

Huh, I was under the assumption this was a remake of the first game. I didn't realise this was actually a brand new chapter of Golden Sun. That makes me more interested in it now.

Something beyond the start menu!? Sold!!

Posted by SynAzrael

Vinny learned  from P4...those were good times.

Hell yea, good ol Golden Sun music!

Posted by Soulblitz

Can't wait to watch this, loved the GBA games.

Posted by breaking3po

My concern for JPRGs is at an all time low. This QL solidifies it. Unchanging genre remains unchanging.
 
For the love of... damnit, do something!

Wow, they got this early. There's not even a release date announced yet. 
 
EDIT: Nevermind. I see the release date. That's like 5 days away. Gamestop hasn't even posted that date.

Ugh, random encounters. I loved the first one back in the day, but nowadays I just can't stand random encounters. :/

Posted by Fragonard

So many damn DS games I want to get. 
 
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Posted by Trilogy

Might have to get a ds for this game. I suppose I should just wait for 3DS but I want it now!

Posted by shadyspace

If JRPGs were a gang, Golden Sun would be the guy who jumped me in. Got mad love for the dude.

This is probably going to be my GOTY 2010, words cannot express the excitement

Posted by gormanator

my nostalgia senses are exploding

Posted by kalmis

Cool. The GBA games were really good. This seems to be more of the same.. in good and bad

Edited by drumpsycho89

YYEEEEAAAAAAAAAH BOOOOOOIIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!! bin waitin for this for fuking ages!! 
 
its pronounced D-JINN!! ryan davis!!! 
 
uhhh i think lol

Edited by Godot

I love that text sound that plays for every syllable the characters say. Sounds almost unchanged from the first two games.
 
EDIT: Oh hey I guess that jump sound is pretty much unchanged as well.

Posted by jorbear

Ryan's Garet voice sounds like Tony from Comic Vine...

Posted by shadyspace

Wish they kept the original 2-D animation, though. The first two games looked way better.

Posted by takua108

I just noticed Garet's sick 'stache. That is incredible stuff.

Posted by SlackerMonkey

It's like a Ryan and Vinny-athon!

Posted by kollay

The best handheld RPG returns.

Posted by jozzy

Hmmm, this or Dragon Quest...

Posted by JackSukeru

Oh man, oh man! I remember why I liked the first one now. Will definetly have to get this.
 
But yeah the way the characters just go on and on can be a bit annoying at times, that was definetly in the first one as well.

Posted by SlightConfuse

vinny;s issac is spot on

Posted by LordCmdrStryker

Damn it all to hell, now I have to buy a DSi.

Posted by MisterSamMan

FANFARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks like an awesome RPG!

Posted by Althox

HYPED I AM HYPED HYPED I AM AM I HYPED!!
 
In other words, I simply love the series.

Posted by heatDrive88

Well this is more than they showed on the Happy Hour that one week, at least.

Posted by Zelnox

This looks really cool.  
 
Vinny's Isaac kind of sounds like Ellis from L4D2 sometimes.

Posted by Kaigan

Pointless Banter: The Genre.
 
Really wish I had a DS, played the hell out of the first two games.

Posted by DallasTheGamer

This game looks interesting. Might try this one out later. I have not played any of the other Golden Sun games though.

Posted by teekomeeko

Great QL, and now I'm totally done with caring about Golden Sun, no offense to the game. It looks cool, but I can't do DS games - small screen + touch controls = unplayable to me.
 
This video also reminded me of why I enjoyed FFXII so much. No random battles and the ability to tell my characters exactly what to do without the constant worthless pressing of buttons was heavenly. I actually felt in control instead of annoyed and/or frustrated.

Posted by Mystyr_E

a DS JRPG and no Kessler, WOO!

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Oh man. It's exactly what I remember from the GBA games with all the inane puzzles that require you to be in the exact right place. And all the platform jumping. Oddly enough though, this game doesn't look half bad. Maybe when I need a DS game I'll pick this up.

I was hoping they'd open up with that when I saw this posted.

Cant wait for this game hopefully it lives up to its name.
