I don't feel like getting the link because I'm a terribly lazy SOB. I'll get it later


It was announced months ago, but anyone excited for the re-issue of gold and silver for the DS?

Of course if anyone doesn't know, Gold and Silver basically revolutionized the game, adding many new features still prevalent in todays' games and some that haven't been included because they're entirely too badass.

Many consider gold/silver the best pokemon installment.

I was a huge fan of Silver. I thought it to be the best. I haven't bothered with Pokémon games since. Although, I personally think this re-issue is a game (or 2) too far. "Heart" Gold and "Soul" silver, IMO, shouldn't happen. If people liked the game so much, they'll still have the cartridge, right? But, I also think the Pokémon franchise should be put to bed. But, that is truely a rant for another day.

Conclusion: Just a visual re-hash of the best Pokémon game, with some of the newer features from the Platinum set. The game is set for a butchering.

I just hope the battling isn't all slow and the animations don't take a year like D/P did. I hated D/P for that mess.

LOL OH WAIT IT DOES DO THAT LOL.

Have fun with this mess guys. I liked Gold/Silver the most out of the series, but they felt they needed to crap on it.

The remixed music is nice and all, but I'm not playing the game just to hear the music. No money for you, Bintendo.

Oh and lol, yeah I have played it. Its out in Japan.

But whatever guys, have fun with this mess. I know you will.

Like Kura said, the animations sucked in D/P, but the "graphics" were better.

I'll think about it. xD

I like D/P and Platinum. The graphics I thought at first were weird but I got used to it so I'm interested to see how Soul Silver and Heart Gold will come out. Fire Red and Leaf Green seemed to do well so maybe these two will as well

FR/LG were okay. I didn't care for D/P though. The storyline just frustrated me. xD

Didn't take me too long. Of course I was playing Platinum and had Giratina though that didn't help much. Besides it's better when it takes longer I reckon. I've finished all of the other Pokemon games numerous times and they were too easy. I'm still going with Platinum even though I have beaten the Elite 4 and the Champion.

The game itself was really easy. Training after victory road was hard.
~6 pokemon ~45ish each. Isn't easy. xD

I guess though I do remember I got stuck at one of the gyms because all my Pokemon were weak against Ghost/Psychic/Dark.

With H Gold and S Silver I hope if they have Pokemon contests that they at least make them somewhat similar to the show. Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald and D/P and Platinum contests were boring.

I was just wasting hours training, and would only get like.. three levels. xD
Nice team building skills, man. -_-

D/P Contests were funny. xD
