I'm fine with new members talking about their projects here (learned about some interesting indie games that way), as long as they try to contribute to the forum. As from JRPG streams: I'm not going to watch. I want to play them myself if I want to experience them seriously. And if I want to make fun of them, I'll play them with some friends.

Skyborn (by Dancing Dragon Games). 

Whoops, yeah, played that one. Was on my list, but I had a little brainfart and mangled the title. Fixed now.
The Sacred Tears TRUE
Bizarre battle system and good storytelling.

Thanks for reminding me. Played it and it's list worthy. Western made RPG Maker games are easier to find than raindrops in autumn, so I want to include a few Japanese examples as well.

Embric of Wulfhammer's Castle (WARNING! 18+ due to sexuality)
http://aeresland.net/ (Free + Get the DELUXE version)
I'm not really sure how to sell this one.
It's mostly comical but the plot is actually very deep.
You basically have to replay New Games + to keep uncovering more and more.
There is some sexual content (not really graphic)

Hm, I don't tink 18+ will get me into trouble. I'll have a look.

I'm working on a big article about RPG Maker and games made with it. While I've got a little list of interesting games, I'm certain there are amazing things out there I've never heard of. Since you're all awesome people who know things, could you help a fellow forum member out?

Some of the games that may make their way into the article:
Corpse Party
To The Moon
Labyrinthine Dreams
Last Dream
Eternal Eden
Always Sometimes Monsters
Off (heard good things about its weirdness, but haven't played it yet)
Yume Nikki (another one on my 'to play' list)
Millennium series (not very familiair with Aldorlea's stuff, have they made something more noteworthy?)

But the villain only exists to provide a challenge for the hero; to make the hero grow as a person or simply make him look cool. No matter how charismatic, intelligent or cunning the villain is, he or she will always end up a loser.

And yet again, I'm compared to a villain ;_;

It's not my fault I have to lead a small army of Tedwards!

Blah, sometimes I just kinda hate the people I work with. Actually, they technically work for me, but still... You see, they often don't get popculture references or jokes in general (I just had to explain the concept of air quotes to atleast four of them), they haven't read much literature and heck, half of the time they are barely aware of the medium they claim to be fans of! It's so boring ;_;

I'm not sure I understand the controller issue.  If the handheld is connected to the TV, isn't it the controller itself?  When I connected my PSP to my TV I didn't use a separate controller; my PSP controlled the action. 

Still, options are good.  Play on the go, or play at home.  I find myself playing games on my iPad and 3DS more than my PS3.

As for brand loyalty, I already answered that.  my brand loyalty pertains more to clothing than anything else.  Some brands of clothing are simply better sized and shaped to my body type. 

The smart thing to do would be to have the handheld as de default controller, but offer a wireless controller as an alternative/to be used for multiplayer. Sold separately, of course.

Basically, the thing would be like a Vita TV with a screen and buttons, I guess.

I wouldn't mind, as long as I can hook that handheld up to my tv somehow and play on a big screen.
But then you have the problem of the controller...

Wireless controller that connects to handheld.

Four sacred development studio have been forced to develop exploitative mobile games for the evil KNM empire in order to turn the general population into addicts who'll gladly hand over their hard earned cash to continue playing. Only you can save them (and the wallets of the people)! Gather an army of 108 characters* (104 of whom turn out to be useless NPCs)! Hang out in your own castle! Play simple minigames to earn money you'll only every really need if you want to expand said castle!

*Who may or may not be named after RPGfan members and their pets.

No one here would tell you to not be harsh on a game. If that's how you felt, we wouldn't tell you to change it.

I did have a writer ones that made everything he wrote about look like the worst thing ever. We later figured out that wasn't even intentional; the guy just had no clue how to write about the good parts.

There's this game called Evoland that's basically a nostalgia/parody trip through JRPG history and can be completed in 3-4 hours. That was a good length for that game. A game only needs to be as long as it needs to be. Heck, I'd play a 1-2 hour RPG if that's all it needs to do what it wants to do.

- Kojima Productions is now known as “Number 8 Production Department.” Its computers have no internet access and can only send messages between internal computers.

-Employees that leave the office during lunch beak are monitored with time cards. Those who return late have their names announced throughout the company.

-There are cameras in the office corridors to monitor the movements of Konami’s employees.

-Konami developers who aren’t seen as useful are reassigned duties such as security guards, cleaning staff at fitnes clubs, or roles at pachi-slot machine factories. This includes producers who worked on big titles.

-After announcing on Facebook that he was leaving Konami for a new job, Konami monitored his social media post and reshuffled those within the company that “Liked” it.

Nice miniature dystopia you've got there, Konami.

I was in Bonn (Germany) for AnimagiC this weekend and this is what I learned:

-Amateur anime theatre can be highly entertaining. I watched a musical in which Haruhi (from the The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) tried to make a Disney movie. It was amazing. Apparently this is something German people do in their free time: write and perform 90 minute musicals at anime conventions.

-Wasps are the true rulers of Bonn and they do not want to anywhere near soda fountains or bread.

-Bleach cosplayers are the nicest cosplayers.

-Inflation aside, German manga prices are still nice and low (buying American editions is kind of expensive right now and the quality of German editions is the same if not higher).

-Don't try to buy manga from a Comic Book Guy fifteen minutes before closing. He does not want your money.

-I haven't made any improvements when it comes to speaking German. I can understand the people I speak to just fine, but I can never seem to find the words I need to reply. When I've finally figured out what words I need (and in what order), they've already started speaking again. I've noticed some people find it endearing, but others are less nice. I don't want to appear inconsiderate (when you're in a foreign country, you should make an effort to speak the language, right?), but some of the reactions to my failings are not encouraging.

Isn't this less of a list for newbies and more of a pageant for the most JRPG JRPG of all JRPGs?

In any case, I'm going to say: screw the rules, play some Tales. Preferably pre-Xillia. Probably Symphonia, Vesperia or Abyss. Well, maybe not Abyss. (Back when the 3DS version came out half of the forum of a magazine I wrote for seemed to be playing it and about half of the people posting had trouble following the storyline, meaning that I had to explain everything, which was a bother.)
