I want to first of all thank all of those who've said kind words about the "20 Game Boy reviews in 20 days" special we're doing. I also want to thank all the reviewers who've contributed to the special. It's been fun putting it all together, although I wouldn't hold my breath on it ever happening again. :)

But in keeping the Retro theme going, we will continue to put up more Retro reviews on a regular basis, including a number of Game Boy Advance titles, once we've closed the curtain on this current GB special, so keep an eye open for them.

I hope you review Golden Sun soon. Some of us are eagerly awaiting that review! :D Corbie, do you honestly consider the GBA to be retro? Just wondering

Well, it's a close call. It is technically a retro system since it's not being supported anymore, but it's not far removed from retail, let's face it. I consider the regular GB/GBC to be more "retro" than GBA. :)

And Golden Sun will be one of the first GBA games reviewed, I assure you. :)

I agree, GB and GBC are starting to get old. But I still have a GBA because I have a DSi and I just don't want to admit that it's kinda old.
And maybe you can also start a "Lost Age" page to satisfy the GS fanboys here. Just a thought :)

I would like to see a review of Super Mario Bros Deluxe GBC. Ive never even heard of it until I saw it the other day and didnt buy it. Im still wanting to kick myself in the head over that one now that I know what it is. Ive heard its the most challenging SMB to date. So many GBC titles slipped right under me. I didnt get into portable gaming until the PSP and now Im backtracking.

lol, all two of us.

Are we giving suggestions? If so, the only other game (besides the Golden Sun series) I'd really like to see is Advance Wars.

All right, three of us!

And yeah, I didn't mention it, but I really enjoyed the retro reviews so far. They've all been interesting reads, though mostly they've just made me want to spend money.

Yes, and it really ought to come from Corbie or someone else who isn't necessarily a huge fan of Earthbound. I remember Corbie saying he didn't even like Earthbound (at least not much) and yet enjoyed Mother 3. I really think lots of non-Earthbound fans would enjoy the game if they gave it a chance, so it'd be nice to have a review from someone who isn't already biased toward the series.

That is correct. I'm not a big fan of the SNES Earthbound title, but I did really enjoy Mother 3.

I have a similar view. I don't consider consoles to be retro until it's 2 generations below the current gen or it's been more than 5 years since it's been in full swing with releases for the system. To me, it hasn't been long enough for stuff like the GBA, Gamecube and Xbox to be considered retro.

I'm not quite sure what to think when it comes to the Dreamcast though. I often think of it as part of a Generation 5.5. It was released a couple of years after the 3 main generation 5 consoles (N64, PS1, Saturn) and around a year and a half before the first generation 6 console (PS2) and main support for the console stopped around the time the Xbox and Gamecube were released, although (to my knowledge) it still continued inside Japan, so I really don't know what to think in that area.
