    Incline JRPG rebalance and difficulty mods/hacks - in-depth discussion

    JRPGs offer gameplay that is usually centered around specially designed systems which, while often highly original and promising, do not live up to the expectations they create, as they're either too unbalanced or the difficulty is cranked down to much to appeal to casual gamers. Therefore, I...

    Thread about analog drift and analog response curves on controllers.

    Basically I effort-posted over on a thread about controllers in General Gaming but no one is going to read it there and I don't want to let my effort-post go to waste, so I'm pasting it here in its own thread :) Analog drift comes from how the potentiometers interact within the analog module...

    Gold Box The Dragonlance/Krynn series thread

    I'm making this thread because I believe talking about all 12 Gold Box games in a single megathread is disgusting, so this place would be about the Krynn series in particular. If you decide to move this post to that ghetto anyway, at least be consistent and also merge all discussions about...

    JRPG equipment upgrade.

    Do you upgrade as soon as you get something better? Let's say your character right now is using armor with 10 Def, the shop now has one with 11 Def, do you upgrade as soon as you can or wait for a 15 Def to be on sale? I hate having to change equipment so i always wait for something with at...

    Squeenix Is Final Fantasy XVI Going to Suck?

    Personally I'm feeling the return to a classic fantasy setting, not sure what to make of the battle system though with the DMC guy in charge. Is it an ARPG or just straight up action?

    Atlus Bugaboo Strange Journey Redux

    Well, I got into SMT Strange Journey totally expecting some noticeable differences in design direction than SMT IV, since this was one of the latter titles where Kaneko had a quite major involvement besides being an artistic lead (although this only holds true for the core game rather than...

  21. Lesser known JRPGs, sci-fi settings, odd themes, experimental subjects, fan-translations, etc...

    I wasn't actually sure whether this topic was better off in the general RPG forum or the JRPG forum. It's rare these days to actually feel like you are exploring a brand new world, experimenting without any guide, not knowing where to go, not knowing what a spell/command even does. Every FF...

    Why end 80s/earlier 90s JRPG's so different than modern ones?

    Take final fantasy 1 for eg > Full party creation, if you wanna have 4 thieves you can. Classes for the typical fantasy archetypes(Black Mage, Thieves, Warriors, White Mages, etc) Promotion quests Random/Dice based stat and hp progression Spell slots and "tier based" magical progression where...
