An update since GS:DD's release:
FIRSTLY![edit | edit source]
THIS GAME IS GREAT!! BUY IT.
No seriously. Buy a copy. Even if you have no intention of playing it. Why? Because if this game, which is built entirely on quality, does not sell, the signal it will send to the market is "don't bother producing high quality games, its not worth it". If you don't buy this game, you'll end up with nothing but shovelware in three years time. All for a saving of a couple bucks? NOT WORTH IT. Hence, BUY. Seriously, its not expensive.
DD & contributions[edit | edit source]
NOTE: the following pretains to the Japanese version, I will get the english version when it comes out in Australia, which is around one day (time zones) after the American release (apparently), since speedy imports cost too much money to do frequently.
I have been playing a japanese version of the game, I can't read japanese, but I do have the ability to translate some parts of it. Despite this ability, I do not do this because translations will be made when the english version comes out that will be infinitely better than what would amount from the workings of hyperactive fan, no matter how well-versed in Japanese they are.
Secondly, I will not be uploading pictures, despite having access to them, due to 1- me not wanting to rip stuff off other people's sites without credit and 2- issues relating to that on Eric's talk page about the Japanese version (with or without ROM considerations). I will, however, do so on request, or if a good reason can be found (for instance, the Megaera picture is watermarked, so I *may* try get a better version of that one.)

As asserted by Cassi, gameplay content need not be revelant till the stateside release, so I will only do so on request, or to cite/contradict otherwise speculative articles that already exist on this wiki (that and any trivia I find- I like trivia XD).
Slax, who's that?[edit | edit source]
Hey, I'm an unknown user, so I'll introduce myself; I'm a long-time Golden Sun fan, who's been an admirer of this wiki for ages, but I've felt it has been so complete that I didn't have much to contribute. However, since the announcement of GS:DS, I wanted to add where I could, because once that game comes out you can be sure I'm not going to spoiler it by coming on here XD.
Also, I'm Australian, so I'll try not to put "mum" anywhere but I apologise in advance if I do XD
What do I like about Golden Sun?[edit | edit source]
Here's a list XD
Topic: Favourite (why)
least favourite (why)
Element: Venus (FTW! -it's Felix's type AND it has most of the OHKO abilities)
Psynergy: Annihilation (though I don't use it due to my aforementioned hatred of ninjas) OR Backstab (also don't use because I don't like Mercury, but both I like for their ability)
Burst (animation= WAY TOO SLOW)
Class: Slayer (because it is venus, is Felix's default class AND is a monster of the Assassin monster line (which has a OHKO), what more must I say?
That it has oddyssey, of course!)
Ninja (just look at that name. Plus it's overused.)
Memory of Golden Sun: Playing it the first time, the visuals were AMAZING! (And still are!)
my fourth playthrough on AQUA ROCK! GARRR! (I got lost XD)
Dungeon: Gaia Rock (Venus, plus the serpent, but I have to admit, it took me FAR TOO LONG to find that DAMN LADDER on the outside XD)
Aqua Rock (possibly a cause for my dislike of Mercury, it is so BORING. -At least Air's rock was Australian and had SOME changes in scenery)
Song(s): Track #4 Super Lucky Dice, Track #70 the peace-restored villages, Track #44 Ending Credits, Track #91 Venus Lighthouse, Track #01 Main Theme, and last (but certainly not least!) Track #81, Elemental Star Chamber/Anemos Sanctum Entrance.
