    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    Tomorrow, I go on vacation. I have a long drive to look forward to (appx. 5 hours) Because of this, I've pulled my DS lite and Acekard out of storage. I'm looking for suggestions. I'm looking for a more western type RPG, though I'll play anything.

    Thank you in advance.

    what qualifies as westerntype rpg? cause i'm not sure the ds has many or many good ones. orcs and elfes is one i would say is western rpg, but its kinda dumb.
    for a long drive, I'd say, get a few games of different genre.
    castlevania dawn of sorrow, from the abyss, inazuma eleven, kirby - mass attack, speed racer or mario kart and any of the 500 puzzle games like polarium, soduko or picross

    I just find that western RPG's have a higher emphasize for character creation than J-RPG's. I'm trying to find a game where you make your own character. After a bit of research, I've found two games that look interesting. Orc's and elves, and fighting fantasy - The Warlock of Firetop mountain. I think I'm going to try those two.

    I think I'll also try the castlevania game you mentioned, Clydefrosch, and I'll look into Ni no kuni, though I'm not a huge fan of J-rpg for the most part.

    I'd say Disgaea DS but you can't make characters right away and you have to grind for XP. Not sure about grinding since i have two different games going on two different consoles

    Try these: 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors (not an rpg, but visual novel / puzzle game, has an incredibly interesring story that will engross you) ; Radiant Historia (awesome rpg, awesome story, I don't need to say anything else) ; Taiko no Tatsujin (Rhythm game with an rpg mode, sadly it's in Japanese only) ; Rhythm Heaven (rhythm mini game collection) ; Mario and Luigi Partners in Time / Bowser's inside story. There's a lot more, but these were just some that were on top of my head.

    (Ketsui Death Label : shmup, it starts easy and becomes frustratingly hard an hour in)

    P.S. Excuse any grammar errors in this post, the default android keyboard pisses me off.
