I've reached that age where everyone in my circle of friends is married except for me.

...I need new friends.

You think getting together is complicated now? Wait till they have kids :)
Not only is it next to impossible to meet in a larger group, but most social gatherings turn into one gigantic episode of Sesame Street.
If it makes you feel any better, you get used to it.

Enjoy

Some of the classic, "amateur" RPGMaker games:

The Way
A Blurred line
Love and War: Act 1
Alter A.I.L.A.

Disclaimer: I haven't played through all of these, but they are highly praised by the amateur RPGMaker community.

There's too many to name rally, so dig around. There's a lot of stinkers but the gems often get high ratings. Mess about with the filters and you're bound to find quite a few interesting games up there.

I suppose that's true. But the trend to go console first then handheld is ... well, I suppose it's cost-effective. But it's still weird. It's like I can just sit around with a Vita and just wait for all the big titles to land in my pocket sooner or later.

This, I would say, is a hardware issue. Once handhelds are powerful enough, popular titles from previous gens get ported over for quick profit.

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

People work for you? That makes you the Boss.
Who do you fight at the end of a game? The Boss.
Accept it!

Just wait for our Editorial on that new FFX HD remaster coming out :o

I honestly wouldn't mind someone exploring the "handheld gets the bonuses" trend. P3P, P4Golden, all those Atelier "Plus" games, etc. It's like, you didn't get for console? Here, get it for $10 less on your Vita with even more stuff!

Isn't that the case with all re-releases though. Handheld or not, you always get some bonus content to coax people into re-buying the same thing over and over again. It's like with every new Star Wars release/remaster having 5 seconds of extra, never before seen, footage.

My point is that you're being a little too specific, gaming wise or not. Part of the fun in dating is learning about the other person. Combing each profile for a perfect fit may be a very "internet" thing to do, but I doubt it's a good way to go about finding someone. I still say that going out is the best way to get your confidence up. Working up the guts to ask a girl to dance and striking up a conversation without the safety of the internet may be the more "terrifying" option but it'll do you good in the long run. Plus, the personal approach is the one where you get the exact thing you want: an answer. Be it rejection or interest, you still get a response.

You do realise that looking for a girlfriend based on video game preferences may not be the right way to go. Even if she is into RPGs, PMing a wall of text about your favourite video game may not be the best way of going about it. Keep it short to begin with, and for crying out loud don't go into full on nerd mode until you've scouted her personality a bit more.
Also, what Yoda said, don't check your profile too often, it won't make the replies come any faster.
That's just it, I don't send walls of texts, and I look for people who point out video games as a major interest. I am one of those people who reads through profiles to get an idea of what the person is like, and I won't even consider sending them a message unless I see a lot of common ground. In my 4 months on okcupid, I've sent maybe a total of 10 messages to girls, including 2 to women I had zero interest in but just liked something they had on their profile and wanted to throw them a compliment, and even then only 1 replied to say thanks. Any message I've sent has been short, usually about a text message in length, and pretty much either a question about their interests or a joke statement because "You should message me if you can make me laugh".

I'm not gonna lie here, I doubt I'd want to be in a relationship where I'm the only gamer, couldn't do it now. I really enjoy gaming that much, and have only skimped a bit recently because of gym runs so frequently (seriously, doing 5-6 days a week now and 3 hours per visit). But I don't think I would wanna date a girl who isn't as into games as I am. There'd have to be a lot of common ground aside from that, which I do look for still, or she has to be ridiculously pretty and have a thing for big guys...and that second one doesn't exist unkess it's on TV.

It's incredibly unlikely that you'll find anyone with that approach. You're too specific and building a relationship around video games is crazy, even by my standards (and I've spent a better part of my life gaming). I remember you mentioning that you won't put on a nice shirt and "pretty" yourself up for the profile picture because that just isn't you. Believe me pal, it's going to be :)
Being in a relationship changes you, weather you like it or not. That goes double early on. It's not really pretending you're someone, just a phase called "trying". You're still you, just a lot cleaner and gentlemanly :)
Eventually, once you both get comfortable with each other, you'll start to loosen up. Some things will stay regardless, and trust me, its for the best :)

Looks like you put a lot of work into this. Out of curiosity, is this an RPGmaker game by any chance?

Maxx, this is your baby.  GUIDE IT. :)

Dont worry, I'm reading all of these. There's a lot of great ideas here but most of them differ too much to be used in the same game. At the moment the game is planned to be a short, hopefully funny, fantasy jRPG with nods to modern culture (think Flintstones). It won't be a full blown in your face parody but rather contain a load of references. I'm currently limited to the assets I got with RPGMaker, that's mostly because I want to focus on using the program rather than scavenging the web for art assets that would look consistent throughout the game. If this works out, I feel confident about my design skills and the ability to plan and complete a project, I'll look for some people to get on board and help me out with art and sound for the next project.

@Dincrest

I actually like that idea, might make one or two of these if I'm feeling blocked, but I do want to create a "game" even if it is very short.

I just hope, among many things, they deliver (like quick travel...please oh please put that one in).

I don't see why they wouldn't.  In fact, it could be really awesome: when you quick travel, the loading screen could be a few seconds of a skit between the guys, similar to the camping skits, but shorter.  There could be a selection of them for each portion of the game and then, as you move forward in the plot, you unlock some more that are contextual to the unfolding story elements.  Imagine quick traveling and then, as it's loading, you see Noctis in deep thought watching the landscape and someone asks him "What are you thinking?" and he replies "Why does Cidney dress like that?  I mean, what is she thinking?"

Man, I should make video games.  I'm a genius.

You do know why loading screens exist in the first place right? :)
Its a fine idea, but from a tech point of view, its VERY unlikely to happen.

Idea:

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 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.

This...may actually work.

How about something surreal?
These may be a bit grim, but Rpgmaker stuff like Off, Space Funeral, Mad Father, and Schuld keep coming to mind as being really neat.

At the moment I want to commit to the light hearted theme. There's a lot of stuff I'd like to do in the future and a surreal game is one of them, but that'll only happen if I ever manage to get at least the basics of game development down.

I'd love to follow this thread but FFIX is still in my backlog and I don't want them nasty spoilers.
One thing is certain, you put a lot of effort into these posts so I'd just like to say...stop.
no really, stop. You're making me and my wall of unfinished text look bad :)

There's something about this game that really rubs me the wrong way. I don't know weather its the character design, the incredibly pompous presentation or the overwhelming feeling that I'm going to absolutely hate the battle system.
Time will tell, but I've come to the conclusion that I've grown to hate modern jRPGs. No problem though, I've got a lot of retro stuff to fall back on, not to mention the rather impressive indie scene.
I have been wrong before though (I thought I would hate Diddy Kong Racing, and it ended up being my favourite cart racer). So, who knows...
