Golden Sun games

As for Lufia 2,
Golden Sun 1 & 2 is one of my two favorite games ever. Too bad the DS one wasn't that good and I hate Nintendo for not including Isaac and/or Felix in a Super Smash game. They fit perfectly.


Anyone remember Bahamut Lagoon? I think it only realeased in Japan, but some people have translated it. You basically have groups/squads of characters, who then first move as a squad on a grid and when they enter battle, it's turn-based. So kinda like Fire Emblem, but you have a squad of characters and then attack oldschool Final Fantasy-wise.
Every squad has a dragon of a type. You can feed it food and every kind of item to gain stats or changing the dragon to some other type. In the translated version, you could feed it Porn Magz.


I found it during my SNES/GBA-emu craze-days.
I love bahamut lagoon, did a playthrough without knowing what I was actually doing dragon development wise. Is it even more fun if you learn the mechanics behind it?
I do remember using the fast forward option a whole lot when I emulated it, seems it would drag on a bit long in some battles otherwise.

If you follow guides, you can create lots of different kinds and if you do everything right, the last, for a lack of a better word, evolution, will make it superstrong, but keep it's original form.

It's pretty neat.

Anybody know what the deal with this is? (Twit thread starts here.) This is the Holy Grail of lost retro games and this guy is somehow posting screenshots.

Considering that he's a game dev that may be an elaborate joke.

I wondered about that, because what he showed looked amazing and hilarious, exactly what we all imagined this legendary game would be like. Like it's too good to be true.

He was the guy who used to run the Lost Levels website, which was a site which that covered unreleased video games. He's a cool guy, if a bit of a leftist unfortunately.

I didn't quite figure out the intricacies of the game mechanics when I first played it, but the game's pretty darn cool. The AI buddies (the dragons) rip and tear quite efficiently, and the spritework is pretty darn nifty. Also some of the dragon evolutions look pretty freaky.

And the closest comparison I have is Ogre Battle and Soul Nomad, though none of anything quite like those dragons.

Ogre Battle (and Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together) are some hidden gems of the SNES era that I wish more people appreciated.

My aunt and uncle used to own the local bar, which had a 10 Choice NES arcade machine in it. When they sold that bar, they kept the machine in my grandparents basement. They opened up the coin area for us kids to flip the switch for infinite coins and play on the games. Great fun!

Made some decent change when we invited friends over too, heh.
