Hello, true believers! Welcome to Negative World's newest RPG-centric Club Hub, springing off the heels of the Fire Emblem Club. Way back when, Nintendo Power introduced a monthly walkthrough / in depth Role Play Game section (right around the beefiest SNES RPG era), but since they aren't around anymore to use it, Negative World will bring it out of the ashes, dust it off, and roll with it (two things of note: #1, this is not in reaction to Nintendo Force Magazine at all -- I know that because I thought of it in the shower this morning, so THERE; and #2, I just looked up "Epic Center RPG" on Yahoo, and there is apparently another RPG-based site that has that, ugh. I guess we're looking at a "Ghostbusters" / "Real Ghostbusters" thing now... Whatever..).

For anyone who grew playing SNES RPGs, and were a fan of them, they surely resonated to the point where they still hold office as some of your favorite games of your entire videogame life, systems, generations, and decades later. The NW Epic Center (run primarily by myself, with the aid of some special friends occasionally) will help to expose some of those games that didn't quite get the recognition they deserved, and also to relive some of the greatest games EVER as we play through them again -- together -- and open up a whole new dialogue on these lost treasures.


Next up..



Chrono Trigger is held by many (myself included) as The Greatest RPG of All Time, pun not intended. It is a benchmark title in the genre, and even after 20 years the game is discussed daily and held in high regard, even in the face of juiced-up, HD "masterpieces." Is simpler sometimes better? Sure, but we're not talking "Dragon Warrior" simple here; we're talking 16-bit perfection at its finest. I'm personally a bit worried about pursuing this game once more; it's been a long time since my last jog through it, and I'm afraid I might have the rosiest pair of glasses that any shot of nostalgia could ever produce. We find out later this month, for better or for worse. (C'mon, it's gonna be fine -- we're talking Chrono Trigger here!! THE BEST, JERRY, THE BEST!!)

Sunday, August 30th marks the start of Week 1 (if you prefer to start your own quest AFTER Sunday, like Monday, or Tuesday, or Wednesday, thats fine!). Golden Sun ran 6 Weeks. GameDadGrant will be our DUNGEON MASTER for this one, and we figure the playthrough to run about the same length. Less than two months. I'm told the total quest should last you between 20 and 30 hours.


See ya soon!!

@DrFinkelstein I'm aware. I'm not looking to buy it again.

@Mop it up

Fair enough. That was a point that was missing from your original comment.

It just released on the 3DS eShop.

I assume you mean Wii U eShop.

Fixed, though it's permanently frozen in your quote.

WELP, we've dillied a bit, and dallied as well, and now we're just days away from the start of GOLDEN SUN.

Who is up for DM'ing this thing, hopefully someone with an intricate knowledge of this thing?
I've never played it (sorry), so I can't do it. Surely there must be a Mega Fan out there, yes?

And if you're interested in playing along, but haven't said so yet, please do!

EDIT- Also, anyone else finish Paper Mario in that time? Surprise Breath of Fire II finishes?
I didn't get around to finishing mine either...hopefully super-soon. SUNDAY? Possible.

Time really has flown. I'm looking forward to Golden Sun even though I know nothing about it. Just a couple of seconds of game footage. No reviews, descriptions, pictures, or anything. I'm going in almost completely blind, which is a rare thing considering how much game information is available on the internet.
Posted: 05/04/14, 06:54:26
I'm playing 3 right now... so, have fun! Great series.
Posted: 05/04/14, 07:34:20
Probably won't be starting Golden Sun until a later in the week. I want to finish off Child of Light first. That shouldn't take too long because I'm apparently on the final chapter.

As for a DM, it seems like Fink and ShadowLink_89 have rated this game highly. I don't know if they would even want to play, but it seems like they're our best bet.

Yeah, Fink should do it!

Or I'll just make stuff up.


Week 1:
-Get the Sword from the Old Man
-Don't go alone, it's dangerous
-Beat the Boss

@Mr_Mustache

...or get out of Vale. I vote for the real route here.

@ludist210
I'm pretty close to that now, though I guess I still have the climb ahead of me...not sure I could keep up with this but I'll try. Gamepad play could mean solid amount of playtime while Netflix is on in the background (thank you based PS4 with your no games!)

@ludist210

I know nothing about the game whatsoever. Is that what really happens? I gotta "pay balance with credit card" anyways, don't have it yet.
Posted: 05/06/14, 01:25:27
I kind of wish I had time to play this...I've played it twice before. Only time I'd have to play it though is before bed, and I'm basically a zombie by the time I get there these days. Have to wake up early every day for the next two weeks to get some projects done :-/.
Posted: 05/06/14, 01:59:09
Done with Child of Light, so I'll start Golden Sun as soon as the goals for week one are posted.
Posted: 05/06/14, 04:39:25
@Mr_Mustache

Yeah, Vale is the first village. It sounds easy, but it takes a couple of hours. I think that's a good first reasonable goal.

...wait, did I just DM myself? Crud.

I still need to start this playthrough. I blame NES Remix 2.
Posted: 05/06/14, 16:08:45
@ludist210

I'd be okay with a barebones "just do this" structure without any sidequests or fluff. Just something that gets us through the game, but doesn't take too much time to come up with. This is only if you want to be DM, of course. Example:


Golden Sun Epic Center


Week 1



Get out of Vale, man. Come on.

@Hero_Of_Hyrule

I could probably look through an FAQ to figure out the structure of the game again, but it's been years since I've done it. If you want me to DM it, can we delay the start a week?

I have no beef about it, I thought everyone else was rarin' to go!

Whatever the case, that sounds like a good first week. I'll get some more points bought on Friday, and get the game later that day.
Posted: 05/07/14, 00:54:50
So whats going on? Are we starting tomorrow then?
