Not getting hit while charging attacks seems kinda op really.

Check out bad rats and "Bridge simulator", both made by the same company.
They are physics based puzzlers but the devs thought "Psychics that act the same every time are boring! Lets add a random element to this!" and no that's not a joke that's actually what they did thus making the game go batshit randomly.

I myself have not had the fortune to have... "Played" that one tho I do know of it.
Also its not a port :P.
I hear the breath of fire 3 or 4 (I forget which) pc port was rendered unbeatable due to crashes and the old Grandia 2 pc port (Not the new one coming out) was pretty bad as well.

I have played many a buggy pc game in my day, Fallout 2, Vampire masquerade, Black & White, but none have had so many crippling bugs! There is the fact the game will crash every few hours and you have to reboot your pc to fix it, or the sound glitching so when you drive the cars in the game it constantly plays the breaking sound effect (Screeching to a stop and starting up again over and over) but none of these stopped me from playing... Until I found out I was suppose to be able to aim my gun up and down! I thought the game just had a majorly crappy aiming system (And I am not the only one) but apparently the aiming is confined to a little box in the middle of the screen so you can't aim high enough to shoot some important stuff! I've been beating my head against a wall trying various fixes for the last 4 hours (One fixed the aim bug but caused my fps to slow to a crawl) and I thought I would see if anyone else has tried and failed to play this here.



Erotic Violence... Yeah this is Valius all over again (I think I spelled that name right)

Anyone have friends who say these things? That know nothing of how things actually work and think this would be a good idea for a company? About the only company I could see actually doing this would be Konami but even then they can still make money off merchandising and cross promotion.

I am okay with real world pop culture references when they are rather sly, like if I didn't know the reference the comment would be rather normal. I hate when they work so hard to work in a reference that it stilts the dialog.

I was talking about pop culture references being the bane of comedy with my friend and we started talking about in story pop culture references (a pop culture in game that characters reference not real world pop culture) any games like this? closest I can think of is Secret of evermore where the main character keeps referencing B movies he has seen.

Does the snes version share this rank system? I found it so stupid that I had to spend most of my game avoiding fights if I wanted more than a bad end.

Only thing I know about the Atelier games are that they are considered very Niche, so they have a shop selling system to? I am mostly looking for a store management game with more plot than a tycoon game. I will look into the games you have mentioned.

A good example of a mobile version of this would be the "Uncharted waters games" but sadly not many of them have come over here.

I rather like the Jrpg setting of it all, I mean I could go play startopia which is more of a station management sim but still the same concept on a larger scale and sci-fi.

So been playing recettear and I love it! I also loved the torneko (I think thats how you spell it) chapter in dragon quest 4! Any other games like this out there? I tried that potato weapon shop one but its more like an phone game (aka time waster) than a game you would sit down and play.

Now if only we could extract the ioses translation and put it in the gba version :P

Then why are you not playing it on a Japanese famicom without an english patch?

Aren't the later remakes better? Why not play those? Which one is the best by the by? The ios and android ones I am guessing.

I think rather than just naming names of games that are great from each genre I would go into what is good about each.

Western RPGs tend to have greater focus on choice and character customization, the main character is usually you in game form so the character building comes from other people in the world, it is also more prone to open world gameplay be it total open like skyrim or semi open like baldurs gate.

Eastern rpgs tend to play out more like movies or novels where we follow a main character (Sometimes silent to put you in his shoes but usually with no real choice in things) and watch a story unfold with a more focused narrative, you usually will go from point a to b to c with a few side quests here and there unlike a western rpg where you usually go from point a to that place that looks shiny over there to I wonder whats over there to oh yeah I have a plot to follow b.

While there are many exceptions to these rules of thumb it is the basic way things tend to go, you have side quests in eastern rpgs and in western rpgs sometimes you play a named protagonist (usually you craft him as you like) but in the end these are just generalizations that can be applied to the genre as a whole without causing many uproars. I do not believe that plots in western rpgs are more serious nor do I believe eastern rpgs are all anime love and friendship funtime, these are poor generalizations because I can point to big names on either side that truly go against this.

I tend to like games from every country, be it the crude unpolished German Gothic series, the super Japanese and deep (If not a little ridiculous) Shin megami tensei or the compellingly deep and tactical Baldurs gate series (also if you think western rpgs are super serious and gritty, may I point out that one of the most popular characters in baldurs gate has a hamster named boo who he thinks is a giant miniature space hamster)

In the end I personally hate generalization because you can find things to like from any country if you look hard enough, reminds me of the "Brown and gray" argument when it comes to western games when one of the most popular games from japan recently "Dark souls" is so brown and gray its beautiful.
