I'm visiting my family for Christmas, and my parents gave me Golden Sun: Dark Dawn on the Nintendo DS. I was a huge fan of the first two in the series on the Game Boy Advance, so I've been really looking forward to this one. I'm only about two hours into it so far, but I'm loving it. If you are a fan of the series or just like Japanese RPGs in general, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Here's the review from Kotaku if you need more convincing. Merry Christmas and a happy slow news day!
