I could see quite a lot of customisation in terms of the gearing as you make the 'drops' fit with your gang theme.

You defeated "Vinny the squealer".
You gain 789 exp.
"Vinny the squealer" dropped an item.
You receive [Tommy Gun]

It's actually pretty easy to make a parallel of Valkyrie Profile and Egyptian mythology since both are lead by a single god, have death god and entities that bring the dead to the afterlife.

Also, I read this when I was a kid: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papyrus_%28bande_dessin%C3%A9e%29
Maybe I should try and find these again and see if they're still good nearly 20 years later.

So...
You are a Jackal retrieving the souls of the dead for Osiris before Re can bring them to nothingness for he wants to humiliate the rule of the (Egyptian) gods by voiding the souls of rulers and proud warriors.
Ra, the sun god, is displeased with this attempt to show his weakness and ponders upon bringing the dead to the light instead of the darkness, opposing the codec of the dead.
In the shadow, a sorceress tries to unshackle Sekhmet, the lion god who once almost trampled on the race of man in an attempt to slay so many men it would bring forth the jackal. Having seen the Jackal with her third eye at the death of the pharaoh she served, she became obsessed over him.

Gameplay is to games what Soundtrack is to movies.
When many actions can be performed on a media, you need to separate each with a word.
Music and books are retarded comparisons since they only have a single one.
There, article debunked.

Well i personally would like to see more RPGs with a cyberpunk setting.. and i'm still a bit mad at microsoft for making such a boring shooter out of the shadowrun license.

 In general i haven't any preferences when it comes to the setting of an RPG but i do care about the aesthetics in a game. For me the setting doesn't have to be anything surprisingly new or fresh as long as it is believable.

Another vote for Cyberpunk. That's the setting I think with the most potential right now. Especially since some of the things we thought were impossible yesterday look like near-future possibilities today. Take for example Deus Ex's human augmentation argument.

What? Like this?

Sarif Industries might not be so far away.

WTF!!!

I worked every single day and I ended up dead! I could've taken Molly to the park once at least :(

I created the cure but was the only one that could use it... in the end... alone in the park... forever.

Fragile Dreams (Wii). That game makes people cry. Not because the controls are awkward (we'll, there's that too...) but because the atmosphere (especially the feeling of loneliness) is so strong and the few people you meet during your travels truly make a difference.

Also, the thing about Fragile is that you pick up items that you can hear the final conversation-thoughts of the owner before they perished. A lot of it is sad.  The ending is....

Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth has those short scenes that quickly explains the life and death of each party member. While they are short, I've always found them to have a strong impact.

Why is there even a thread for this in the RPG section? I thought it was a rhythm game.

I have to be honest, I've been kinda letting it slide because it's Final Fantasy-themed. I even expect them to throw in some RPG elements due to being an FF spin-off, much like Dissidia!

Turns out it's fucking Dissidia Dance Revolution.

Correction, DDR and Osu! (http://osu.ppy.sh/)

Want to buy a used copy, thereby not supporting the developer or publisher at all?

Errr none of that money will go to the developers Parn. It's straight to Sony.
That weirds me out because if one game is bought, they receive the money and must assume 1 person on their server. If you trade the game, it's still only one person on their server.
Why should they get extra money for the exact same strain on the server?

I think the keys are locked to a certain PS3 after use.
