Yep, and there's also been a Ds port i believe, ---- though I must confess sinse the Gba became more out of fashion and things got visually impossible for me again, I haven't really taken as much notice of main stream game releases.

Generally, I don't get sited assitance in games, both because I live on my own, and because i've always felt it was a bit too much to ask someone to sit there and read an entire game and explain a combat system while I made decisions.


I've watched my friends play rpgs, and they've read the text, ---- rather the same way I've watched subtitled anime, but they've handled the actual game itself.

I only know of game mechanics from long discussions with my brother.

generally, in terms of graphical games, I play things which I can get through with a combination of my vision and a faq. These have included some fairly complex 2D things (particularly the Metroid and Mega man series), pluss a few 3D beat em ups, but no honest to goodness rpgs.

currently, I haven't yet decided whether to get a Wii or Ps3. The Ps3 is better for beat em ups, but the Wii has the virtual console which includes many fun games (especially Mega man 9).

on the other hand, my Snes and Mega drive stil work very well and i play them often, so much of the 16 bit stuff on the virtual console it just wouldn't be worth me buying. In fact I bought several games, ---- including streets of rage 3 and some Turrican titles from E-bay just last week.

But before this turns into a low vision gaming discussion I'll stop.

Beware the grue!

Actually Mario RPG just got released over there, I believe last year. It was sort of celebrated amongst the gamers community when it came out in europe on the virtual console. However, as good as Mario RPG is, even if you had sighted assistance to play it, I wouldn't say its worth getting a Wii just to play.

Yeah, I've heard good things about Grandia. Hopefully one of these days I'll have a chance to check it out.

Hints in KoL would be good indeed, and something I'd much prefer to looking up puzle solutions online.

As for graphical rpgs, well sadly Marrio rpg never had a release over here, so I never had chance to encounter the game. I have read a script however and agree on the rather surprising character depth.

The mechanics of the Grandia games always amazed me for their symplicity, and yet how flexible they were.

Each character had a number of power meters which built up over time, and a number of moves or actions they could perform depending upon where their meater was.

Enemies worked the same way, so for quick enemies, it was sometimes better to wait, and then slam them with a more devastating attack, or to use a number of quick attacks.

Sinse actions also included dodging, changing party order, healing, parrying etc, this made for a very in depth set of mechanics.

I also absolutely agree on the audio rpg front.

Beware the Grue!
