And anyone with a GBA should get Golden Sun and Golden Sun 2. They’re excellent!

<img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> I know. I’m just complaining since importing is a bit of a hasstle, and usually costs more. Also, from what I’ve heard TO:KOL became quite rare.
Golden Sun games are good, but be warned, there are a lot of long dialogues in the beginning.
I think I’m going to buy one RPG and one non-RPG for now, with Super Mario World that makes 3 games which is enough I think for the time being. But what to get…
Tactics Ogre for the RPG and just call Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow a non- RPG for your purposes.
I’ll say Golden Sun for RPG and Metroid Fusion for Non-RPG
Trust me, you won’t be deceived
Golden Sun and Metroid Fusion. I swear, that game was fun, exciting, and downright scary for me at times!
While I’ve only played a bit of a not-so-legal and untranslated rom I believe I can safetly reccomend Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. I haven’t gotten around to buy Golden Sun 2 yet; is it even released in Europe? I can reccomend Golden Sun 1 though: It’s good, except for the dialogues.
Nulani, that is so funny 8P.
Either go for Metroid Fusion or Aria of Sorrow (just get both, fusion is uber cheap on ebay) and get FFTA later this summer. Tactics Ogre is awesome,but one of the endings won’t strike you as hard and jaw dropping if you haven’t played Tactics Ogre PSX/SNES. Though there’s also PSC which gives you 3 games in 1. I got it for less than 15 bucks on ebay. I love ebay.
Something I just thought of though… The games I named are really good, but you should keep something in mind if you’re just playing in breaks: insta field save. You’ll probably need an rpg that allows you to do that since you’ll have interesting time constraints. Castlevanias (or metroid) might not be the answer to your gaming woes because of that. Golden Sun has the ability to save anywhere, making it REALLY practical.

What’s so funny about it? Is it funny because I actually wrote a little and didn’t just cramelam it all into a neat little list, like this one:
[li]Golden Sun 1 & 2
Insert Question Mark Here.
Anyway. I guess I should add Tactics Ogre to the list; having played Ogre Battle and liked it.
Its funny you say an RPG’s good except for its dialogue. Dialogue is an essential part to an rpg. Irony.
another question: What kind of lights did you guys buy for your GBA? I have a Gamestar, but it seems to glare the center of the screen a little bit.
gba sp owns me. From what Saturn told me, all gba lights suck.
Yea, they do. Get an SP.
If you already have a Gameboy Advance, just use a lamp or natural sunlight. I don’t think that it will be worth buying a new Gameboy Advance (SP) just for the light.
Edit : On second note, I’m dissapointed in the lack of details and clarity such light can give, so maybe it could really be worth it, depending on your priorities
<img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> Oh yeah, this reminds me. A question to all the GBA SP users… is it really as hard to play on it as it looks? I mean, the buttons look tiny and crammed together.
It may look cramped but it feels just fine really, and Aria of Sorrow has a field save option as a note. 'Bout time too…
Its a little bit crampt only on Metroid fusion up to now (play it and you’ll understand and keep in mind I have huge hands). Its not that big a deal really. I like the look a lot more and I like how the screen is protected by the fold and of course, the music option owns. The only slight downside (which confuses me) is that there is no plug for head phones. But I saw headphones for gba sp for sale at eb, so I guess there’s probably something someone can do, but I never looked that deeply into it.

Merl, you could try one of those Afterburner things, though there is a risk involved, I hear.
