    So, I just got the game, and I didn't see a thread for the game, so I decided to discuss it and everyone's input on it.

    So far I know this just from playing:
    Matthew, is the son of Issac and the main character of this game. He is a Venus (Earth) Adept

    Karis is Ivan's daughter and a Jupiter (wind) adept

    Tyrell is the son of Garet and a Mars (Fire) Adept

    How is the gameplay so far? any different from the original 2 Golden Suns?

    I love the series, but I don't have a DS. Was hoping that the 3DS would be backwards compatible and I could pick this game up for it.

    Then I'll have some backtracking to do. This and the WFC DS game. Golden Sun was one of the best Advance RPGs eva'. Amazing music and color, and reminded me so much of Sega's RPG days.

    I just got my
    5th party member
    . In the Djinn department I gots 4 Venus, 4 Mars, 5 Jupiter and 6 Mercury.

    Still loving the game, feels like a nice natural progression to the series. Only real complaint is it's very, very easy.

    I still haven't finished the first GS. I'm "stuck" at some tournament part. Not really stuck, just too lazy to do everything with my djinn's to give me the best chance to make it through, and I don't want to have to do it all over again if I die (since I can't leave to level up or anything).

    I'll pick it up. I still have to play the 2nd GS game, have owned it for years. Hell I bought a GB micro just for transfering the data over between the GS games, as well as pokemon trading way back in the pre-ds days. Replaying FF6 at the moment, so maybe after that.

    Got it stashed away for Christmas. Gives me a couple of weeks to polish off Dragon Quest IV ;) 

    I've been looking forward to this for ages, about time we get to see the next chapter of the saga.

    When I was at the Mountain Roc, I didn't know that you could go inside the things body. And when you go inside, it looks like it's a machine, not an animal!

    Even though it's finals week, I've been playing this game nonstop. I got all the characters and all the djinn and the Sol Blade, but now I'm going around to get the summon tablets :)

    I remember playing the 2 GBA Golden sun games waaay back when.

    But I don't think I ever quite finished either of them, and it kind of made playing the second one a bit... premature.

    I loved them though, so I think this will be a must buy for me.
