  1. Everyone better go download Golden Sun: The Lost Age and the first Golden Sun. Those are seriously 2 of the finest RPGs I have ever played (Isaac for Smash).

    1. Can the download games on the Wii U interact of the same way they were in the GBA? I mean, I play the original Golden Sun, could I transfer the data to the new one?

      1. Most likely not. Sorry but you’ll have to use the archaic password function to transfer your data to Lost Age. :/ I could be wrong, though, but I highly doubt it.

      2. I need to finish Etrain Untold, then I’m grabbing part two! Etrain Odyssey has the perfect balance for dungeon crawlers…JUST the right amount of grinding. And of the series, the gameplay and tweaks of Untold are just perfect. I’m glad they gave it a sequel.

        Of course, you have to be a fan of turn-based strategy to enjoy!

          1. I’ll take a look!
            There was one I really, really wanted to like, but it was horribly unbalanced… Chained Blades, or something.
            I’ll see if I can find Onimusha!

          2. I lost my wallet, lost my family ring, and got into a fender bender that will increase my insurance all in the past month…. But Golden Sun: The Lost Age makes up for all of that…. FINALLY!!!

              1. He just literally did a Geico commercial on here with that comment. But yeah. Sucks he’s had all of this trouble so I’m glad he saw a bright light at the end of it. *just realized he might have made a reference to the fender bender*

              2. Yes! Fucking finally! The UK has had this game for going on 2(?) years now! If not for the fucking ESRB, we probably would have had this game around the same time as the UK. I wonder if this is the case with other VC games that are in the UK but not the US. If so, the ESRB has fucked us over again. It’s time to get rid of that dinosaur of a rating system & replace it with an updated one! ASAP!!!

                *facepalm* I bought Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl on the 31st of July so I fucking missed this damn 50% off thing. Ugh! I wish I had put getting it off just for a few days & I could have saved 15 bucks! *fake cries* Oh well. Damage is done. I’ll get Fafnir Knight soon. As much as the game droughts for Wii U sucks major ass, I’m surviving it because of my 3DS, thank God.

                  1. Same here. As much as I actually enjoy playing games on a handheld console, it sucks that it’s my most used gaming console right now.

                  1. Waste of time and money maybe? The only one I ever got was the Splatoon theme and it’s not even that great since who sits at the home screen for more than half a minute anyway?

                    1. If you use the internet or Miiverse a lot while playing games, it’s nice to have a theme installed while going back & forth between them, no matter how long we stay on the home screen. It’s no different from our computers when we use pictures as the background for the PC’s home screen.
