Just curious but do you want us to include both a JRPG and WRPG title in our entry or are we simply paying tribute to our favorite RPG in general?

I'm pretty sure you can do whatever you want as long as it includes some kind of RPG, I mean we've had this before haven't we? Nonetheless, we've had similar ones like the ''360 vs PS3'' SOTWs.

Sorry should have made it clearer, as spyrde said - you only have to choose one rpg.

Hopefully we end up with some from each so the theme works. I could always just change the theme to just RPGS or narrow it down to just one of the sub-genres, what you guys think?

We could all just say which RPG we'll do? That way we don't get repeats. 'Oh look six sigs with Sheppard....how original' :lol: I was thinking of doing Dragon Quest.

Dragon Warrior III was my personal favorite title in the series.

I'm going with Chrono Cross for my entry.

Funny thing is I've never played the game :lol: I just picked one I wasn't familiar with.

And there is nothing for me to right click on...[/QUOTE]

Yeah, I'm using Firefox and it wasn't showing for me..when viewed in explorer it appears as a white box with a red 'X'.

You call that rusty? Pfff!

Edit: OK I wasn't going to do thicker borders on the sides but I think it looks pretty good that way. Sharpened up the render too.

I think I should have left more color in mine.
[/QUOTE]
Are you using GIMP?

I would go over the render with a small brush and sharpen him a bit. You should also wrap it up with a border. You can find it under Filters. Click on Decor and choose Add Border. Then set the X and Y sizes to 1 and the color to black.

Nice flow though. Keep up the good work. :)
