I'm at uni. I have no cash whatsoever.

I'm going to go down to GAME and get steadily more naked until they give me Golden Sun or I get laid. Both are depressingly unlikely :twisted:
I love the taste of Pikmin in the morning.

If Dark Dawn gets 92% then the first one should get 95% and 93/94% for Lost Age. I've barely even touched the surface of Dark Dawn but I'm loving it so damn much. It keeps true to the originals it almost feels nostalgic. As ONM rightfully has pointed out though there have been bits where occasionally there's a bit too much text at times and one of the biggest gripes I've had so far is the 'emoticon reply' system. For me personally it still has a lot to prove to become a 'classic' like the first two in my eyes, but probably because the first two games had that 'magic' that is usually hard to equal for a sequel let alone surpass; though I still have high hopes :wink:

I'd definitely recommend for everyone to pick this up :D unless you really hate RPGs...
