ebay: Golden Sun 1 & 2 (1 day left!)
I'm parting with my beloved Golden Sun & Golden Sun: The Lost Age. I've had a complete blast playing these games, and I've milked out all I can from gameplay (I think I've clocked in 70+ hrs of gameplay, hehe). This is pretty much my favorite GBA game of all time, and all of you should consider playing it at some point. @_@

Anyhoo, here's the auctions...there's only 1 day left! I will combine shipping if you win both. Good luck!

I just finished playing The Sims: Bustin' Out and Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and I have to say, they were rather disappointing.

I found them far too linear and repetitive. I understand the need for such things because the system is so small. But the story lines were so weak, that these things just stood out way too much for me to get over them easily.

I don't know what to do next. I feel like any game I get is going to be super linear, and way too repetitive. I don't mind that so much for arcade games like Tetris Worlds, because that's what they're supposed to be like. But for simulations and RPGs, which on the PC are much deeper, I wonder if all GBA games are going to feel like they fall short, for me.

Has anyone else run into this kind of disappointment with the GBA system? Did you find better games - were my first choices poor ones?

This community doesn't look very active but i figure ill ask anyway.

I'm a very casual gamer, I'm mostly into rpgs like zelda but im not a big fan of final fantasy. Anyway, i used to have an original game boy back in the day and like a week ago I bought an original Game Boy Advance so i could play some of my old favourites like Zelda: Link's Awakening and Pokémon Red. But now that i have the advance i like it and i want to buy some current games for it but i dont know whats out there.

Could anyone suggest some games that you think would appeal to me? or even some good games period. thanx in advance.

Are we allowed to post games for sale or trade on here?

Currently, I'm looking to sell or trade Bubble Bobble and Sims: Bustin' Out.

I'm looking to acquire any of the other Sims games...

Atomic Betty
I know it's been out for a couple of months, but I got it recently and it's not a bad game if you have a young gamer on your shopping list...

Pokemon: Fushigi no Dungeon Blue
So, Nintendo released Pokemon: Fushigi no Dungeon for the DS last week in Japan. It's a cross between Nintendo's lovable and extremely marketable pocket monsters and ChunSoft's long-running Japanese RPG series and, import fiends we are, we snagged a copy and jumped in. I won't ruin the preview, but suffice it to say you'd better be ready to wade through a significant amount Japanese text if you have any intentions of importing this one.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

Where was I? Oh yeah, Mario. And Luigi…and Baby Mario, and Baby Luigi. All four of these plumbers and plumbers-to-be are the stars of the upcoming Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, Alpha Dream's upcoming role-playing game for the DS. It's the sequel to our 2003 GBA game of the year, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, so naturally our expectations are pretty high. You can expect our review of Partners in Time soon enough, but in the meantime, savor the flavor of our recent hands-on preview.

Final Fantasy IV
Final Fantasy IV is apparently releasing on the GBA, with some sort of additions/improvements/whatever.

I'm actually pretty pleased with this because FFIV is the only game in the series I care for anymore, and when this comes out I can sell my PSOne and the crappy version of it for that system (seeing as it was the only reason I was holding onto it). I figure someone else must care too.

HM: FoMT 1-2
Does anyone have the instructions/maps for Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral town and/or Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town that they'd be kind enough to scan in for me? I would love you forever and name my kids after you...

nintendog's is the cutest game ever! :)

It is really neat also, I wasn't sure about it at first, but the voice command system works surprisingly well, the wireless feature looks promising and the graphics are outstanding for the ds, I believe... The demo version does it no justice... I am really enjoying my little doggie, he is too cute. You earn money through competitions, and it has guides on how to train it. You can choose what puppy you want, adn what colors... It is really simple to follow, more like a sim than a game of course, you can buy a different decor for your home as you win more competitionsand such...

Shining Force

One of my very favourite games ever - Sega's Shining Force 1 - was released for GBA last year. It was wonderful and I played it, and now I think it only logical that they give us Shining Force 2, as well. So I sent an email to Atlus, and told them that. I heard back from them this morning:

Hi Renee,

Thanks for writing. As much as we'd like to work on another Shining title, Atlus USA is only a publishing / localization company. Sega, the creators of the Shining series, is responsible for video game development. Unfortunately, there are no official plans for another title at this

Customer Service
Atlus USA, Inc.

So I wrote to Sega and told *them* what I want. They are still actively making Shining games, but so far it's only been games for the PS2 and I don't care for the newer graphics/movement style, or the absurdly slow loading times of CD-based games. I want my retro-gaming, dammit!

Anyway, if anyone would want to join me in suggesting SF2 for GBA, Sega's contact form can be found HERE.

Gameboy Gets DreamWorks Movies
I havent heard this around the community so I thought I would share with you all..

DreamWorks SKG, one of only two major suppliers (Warner Home Video the other) not providing content for Sony’s PlayStation Portable (PSP) format, the Universal Media Disc (UMD), is instead prepping content for the handheld player’s biggest competition, the Nintendo GameBoy.

DreamWorks will release its hit animation titles Shrek, Shrek 2 and Shark Tale for GameBoy cartridges to be released later this summer in partnership with game publisher Majesco. The studio’s latest animated release, Madagascar, may also be tapped for GameBoy video content after its release to the home entertainment market, according to reports.

Other video content available for the GameBoy includes programming from animated TV shows like “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “The Fairly OddParents,” “Jimmy Neutron,” “Dora the Explorer,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Strawberry Shortcake” and others.

Help -- savegames not saved, ever!
This happens to be on my Monster Rancher Advance game, but I'm betting it's a widely-applicable question.

I think the battery in the catridge has gone dead. I opened it up, and I think I see the battery, but there's no size/model number on it. Does anyone know where one gets replacements of this (type of) battery? I'm jonesing for my tiny dino-shaped duelling crack! There's a limit to how many times I want to play the first hour and a half of the game over and over again. :->

Gameboy Advance Micro

Look at how b-e-a-utiful the Gameboy Advance Micro is! Man, I have actually been pretty much content with my oldschool Gameboy Advance, although I've been thinking about getting the Gameboy Advance SP, but now, screw all that, I'm so waiting for this one! It's amazingly compact, it has all the goodness of the Gameboy Advance, you can now adjust the LCD brightness according to your liking, and you can personalize it by changing its faceplates. Check out all the other designs at Nintendo Japan. How cool is that? I guess I'm a sucker for cute stuff, heh.

I was on Amazon.com today just looking at different things when I happened on the PSP page. I did a little reading on it and then started looking at the online reviews. I came across this comment and was just taken aback:

First off I just want to say to all of the adults with a psp or ds this, the psp and ds aren't meant for adults, it's a marketing scheme. Second off to all those adults who say that kids should wait until they get mature and get a job to get this expensive piece of "equipment" I say get a life. If you're so mature you should pay attention to your job and not play toys for "children." This is a real thing an adult said in his review, 'After all, this IS suppose to be a system designed for older people who have jobs that can afford to pay for such a system. I would suggest that the kids stick with the cheaper kiddie systems like the DS until they can get a job and pay for a PSP.' GET A LIFE!!! BOTH OF THOSE SYSTEMS ARE FOR "IMMATURE" KIDS

I was curious as to what you guys thought? Personally, I'm offended. I'm 26 years old and by no means think I'm too old to play handheld video games. I can't believe there are people out there that think like this!

xposted to advanced, gamers, nintendo_ds, sony_psp, and my own journal.
