I dig the Fighting Fantasy Project, always liked those books, but found it tedious to always write your stats and roll dices, good thing their game does everything for you.

Almost all of them are made with their own engines. These guys can program. Theres a shitload of these games all over the place. Theres just no possible way someone can look at the PC and say theres nothing there they want.

I hadn't heard of that one. I checked out some details and it sounds cool. I'm downloading now.

Its really awesome

This video seems to be slow as the game moves faster than this, but here



Of coruse I probably enjoy it a bit more than the average person as the Ragnarok Online fanservice is a plus, but its still a fantastic game.

DS is unlikley, WiiWare however is VERY likley. Nintendo almost has no rules when it comes to WiiWare so if that guy wanted to port it to Wii to make a buck, he could do so.

I've been playing the ragnorok one and it's pretty fun. I was disappointed they didn't have the advanced classes though. I wanted to make an assassin stack him up with critical hit cards unfortunaly as far as I can tell you can't upgrade equipment or collect cards. Still fun though.

The Noitu Love 2 Demo is out. I got ahold of it and Megauploaded it for you guys.

Its really fun, I just dont like being tied to my desk. If it came out for WiiWare I'd totally buy it though.

Anyways here you go.
