Me and one of my buddies have just been listening to some of our favourite Golden Sun soundtrack songs and I'm so fucking pumped right now. This game is easily my most wanted game of the year since Nintendo first revealed it last E3. So I thought I'd post a few of these songs to get things rolling.
Nostalgia is punching me so hard in the face right now. Next week is too far away. Also, a collection of reviews so far:
GamesRadar - 8.0 Nintendo Power - 8.0 IGN - 7.5 GamePro - 3.5/5 Famitsu - 9/8/8/8 ONM - 92% GameTrailers - 8.5 JoyStiq 4/5 Nintendo Life - 8 1up - B Kotaku 4/5
The rundown so far: Golden Sun: Dark Dawn is a great game especially for Golden Sun fans. However, the main complaint is that the game is much easier than the previous titles and this is actually quite disappointing.
When I was able to finally move about, the graphics looked even nicer. This is a semi-cel-shaded appeal to it. I found my first herb and encountered my first "emoticon event". These don't do anything to alter the storyline from what I read in previous articles about the game but it's still fun to have some kind of input. Considering Matthew seems to be taking the place of Isaac as the 'silent protagonist' in this game, that is a nice little addition.
No kidding. I haven't seen a phat boy in a long time. That said, my copy of the game is staring at me....I wanted to finish off an assignment before I open it, but the temptation is HORRIBLE. Not to mention I've also got Epic Mickey staring at me as well.
I've only ever had this phat ds. The hinge is broke too so it's loose and could snap if I'm not careful. I can make it till the 3DS... I know I can!!!
Though, back to the game. It's fun so far, as my impressions noted. I finally am off on my journey after the interlude and tomorrow I can't wait to truly get my hands dirty.
ShadowLink_89, let us know (perhaps here perhaps elsewhere) how Epic Mickey turns out too. I think I'll pick it up next month but.... I just wanna be sure I wont be disappointed first. Hopefully it's as epic as it claims.
