Is Golden Sun: Dark Dawn worth playing? I finished the first game on the Wii U VC a few months ago and hope to start The Lost Age as soon as I'm done with Color Splash on my Wii U. After that, I thought of maybe grabbing Dark Dawn physically. I've been finding mixed things about it....

For RPG games on NDS, Golden Sun Dark Dawn was pretty good.
It has a lot of Summons, like i was thinking it looked like "FF VII" on NDS.

@Anti-Matter: Thanks for your input. From what I'm finding, overall it isn't a bad game. Many just seem to think that it's disappointing when compared to the first two games.

@Tyranexx I think Dark Dawn is a bit underrated. It's certainly the worst of the 3 games, but the core gameplay is almost exactly the same. I think the lackluster story and over abundance of dialogue is the main issue with the game, but if you enjoy the gameplay of the first games you'll probably get some enjoyment out of Dark Dawn.

Many people seem to act as though it's an abomination that shouldn't exist, which I don't agree with.

That's a way too common a problem on the internet. It's not as good as the previous games SO IT MUST BE TERRIBLE11!1!!1! I played it, I enjoyed it. It's not the first two games, but that's not too surprising in hindsight since I think Golden Sun 1 and 2 are two of the greatest turned based JRPGs ever made.

Same with most disliked Nintendo sequels tbh. Shut up Skyward Sword haters, play an actual bad (or even mediocre) game before you pretend to know what you're talking about.

@Cynas, @kkslider5552000: Your comments seem to more or less reinforce the mental direction I'm going towards in regards to Dark Dawn and what I'm finding elsewhere. It seems like a decent game, just maybe a little lackluster when compared to the other two. I'm willing to give it a chance at any rate.

Thanks for your input!

I 100% agree with this. Skyward Sword isn't my favorite Zelda game, but I would rank it above some of the other games in the series. It's by no means perfect, but there's quite a lot to love about it. I understand some of the complaints, but IMO many of them are overblown.

I do know that the first two games are occasionally called out for having a windy cast. I don't recall that ever really bothering me through my Golden Sun playthrough. For all I know, The Lost Age is even windier, but I suppose I'll find out soon enough.

@ReaderRagfish: Windy = long-winded, talkative, chatty, as I'm sure you've surmised. As for The Lost Age, I already have it sitting on my Wii U's internal memory....I just haven't gotten around to playing it yet. I'm hoping to start it after finishing Color Splash....I've been pushing 3DS games a little more lately, so that will probably be finished around the end of the month.

Lately, i have some interest with Pokemon White 2 & Pokemon Soul Silver.
Do you think both of them are good games for my NDS games collection ?
I heard something about Pokemon Gen 5 (Black / White) about catching previous Pokemons :
"Setting itself in a region where Pokémon from previous generations could not be caught."
What was that means ?

I personally think Black/White 2 is better balanced/polished overall. It also features older pokemon, unlike the original Black/White, which featured only (then) new Pokemon until you beat the game.

The gold and silver remakes did some things to fix the balancing issues the originals had, but it's still pretty noticeable. It's still a nice nostalgic trip though.

However, Soul Silver should give you a bit more post game with the battle frontier, if that's your kinda thing (I've personally never actually bothered with it, since, again, it's hard to train a good team in those games).

White 2 also has a good amount of post game content though.

The 10 or so Used game shops around me are completely devoid of all DS games now. Honestly at this point, I'm just looking for 10 or so games, but seem so expensive now to find. I regret passing back in the day on gathering DS games.

Thank you

@Eel I don't play the Pokemon main series games and play the Pokemon spinoff games. Mostly because I SUCK at battling, spinoff games have more plot and I have low vision which means low graphics and theres more spinoff games, also I run on the emulator (DeSmuMe) and my stupid storage cant take that much space. I was gonna get Black and White in DS, but focusing more on spinoff games (mostly Ranger and Mystery Dungeon)
