Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Being the crazy guy that I am, I find myself tempted by the idea of magic guns.
Now, they do not need to be truly magical. Status effects and elemental damage are what I'm after here. If it shoots regular bullets magically, it's also out.
What I've played that fits the bill:
Monster Hunter 2 Freedom
I'd like to avoid JRPGs if possible. Looking for real-time, direct control, ideally. Further, if the game has some kind of crafting/modifying system so I can make my own willy-nilly(like the enchanting in Elder Scrolls, though that doesn't apply here since it lacks guns), that's a big bonus.
So, any ideas?
EDIT: I should've mentioned this...I have a DS, PSP, 360, Wii, and access to the PS2 and oXbox. No PS3, no gaming computer.
