I once toyed with the idea of the main character being a grunt soldier in a war against an ancient evil. The ancient evil can only be defeated by the "Hero from the prophecy of hope...or something" The twist?. Another person becomes the "Hero" while you remain a grunt the entire game. The "Hero" also never joins your party. Your party does not battle the ancient evil.

Honestly though, if I was to create a game I would probably have it as a country in civil war due to the lack of ability of the country's leaders. Three different storylines would be told with the ability to switch between them similar to Wild Arms if the prologue kept going. The order of choices you make would have effects for the other characters.

The main characters from the three stories would be
Character A
A young father going off to war in what he believes is for the good of his family.

Character B
The wife of character A who has to rally the remaining people in her village to fend off bandits who see her home as easy prey.

Character C
A high ranking officer for the rebels. His choices effect the outcome of certain battles.

Some that I have played in the past that sound similar. Out of these I would say MagnaCarta is the closest match combatwise. It is slightly similar to Shadow Hearts ring but with X, circle, square and triangle being pressed instead of just X.

Mario RPG games
Sands of Destruction

Breath of fire: Dragon Quarter

Dragoneer's Aria (This is only listed because of the guarding system which is a ring type. The rest of the combat is regular turn based)

I am delighted for New Zealand. It seems like a lot of the smaller teams are holding their own against the more successful ones.

Finally finished The Dark Spire. The game is definitely not for casual gamers.

After reading some news about Rune Factory 3, I decided on starting a new game in Rune Factory 2. I plan to take my time in the first generation as I slightly rushed it my first playthrough.

I still have a small hope that Nicholas will pop out of nowhere, beat the crap out of Jake and live happily ever after with Cecilia.

  And besides, NISA fans like Idea Factory games, which makes NISA's decisions on localization pretty fucking easy.  "Hey we can buy up this license for fucking nothing because Idea Factory games are absolute shit, and then sell it for $60 to our rabid mouth-breathing fanbase!  They want it, so let's get it!"  Not a hard choice when what the fans want is readily available and already a terrible product.

While I admit most of their games have certain..."flaws" for the most part the games try to be unique. Personally I thought Spectral Force Genesis for the DS was a lot easier to get into than their other Neverland games (as they actually have something resembling a tutorial in this one).

I do agree that NISA is very in touch with their fans, but they do have some...other...issues.

Loading times?

I am a fan of NISA but the loading times on their PSP games make me want to go on a murderous rampage.

Smash hit may be an...exaggeration.

Good corporate company.....bad decision makers........dont give a hoot about the fans

Is that because they did not attempt to convince Square-Enix to release Dragon Quest VI and Joker 2 in the west for you?

Seriously though, they are a business. From what I have seen with them they are better than most at listening at fans. From the bad decision makers I assume you mean the hit and miss style they go with when producing games? Some of them are not that great (I could never get into My world my way) but other like etrian odyssey(a big risk when most handheld games were geared at least partially towards casual gamers) were great. I see no major problems with the games they develop themselves.

What is wrong with Atlus?

Admittedly I am a Gust fanboy but I have always liked games either published or developed by Atlus.

I could slightly understand if it was a concert as they are a one time only event but...this is a bit extreme.
791  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: June 17, 2010, 06:40:22 PM
Started Suikoden VI and got up to shortly after recruiting Lucretia.

A spark of hope was utterly dashed.

I have been playing The Dark Spire. Needless to say I have been dying quite often. I managed to get through both Etrian Odyssey games but this game may hate me even more.

All excitement I had vanished into the depths of Hell when I read Idea Factory.

Sometimes I think I am the only person in the world who enjoys their Neverland series. Sure, they may never explain how anything works ingame but looking past the learning curve the games are usually quite unique.

Thankfully for me at least they seem to be releasing a ton of the games recently.
793  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Is Square-Enix out of talent? on: June 17, 2010, 04:52:13 PM
I would not say they have run out of talent. I think part of it has to do with everyone's high expectations of them. A lot of people prefer their older games. There is nothing wrong with that, although it is unfair to translate their old games being better equals their new games being bad.
794  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FFIX will finally make it to PSN on: June 15, 2010, 11:53:52 AM
Does the name Dagger sound any better in Japanese?

I will probably get this although chances are high that I will remain trying to get 100 at the sword fight. Doubly so if I try it on psp.

Buffs and status affecting abilities are generally useless in most rpgs. You rarely if ever need to use them.

Also for some reason I find it very difficult to like final dungeons. You get the feeling you have seen a similar place in many other rpgs while the huge size of the place means that feeling only grows worse.

The game has over thirty endings (although this technically may be true, you will probably only see two or three different endings at most)
