    I need a good RPG for the 3DS I am new to it...vita has disappointed me so far as I wait for SOUL SACRIFICE, and MH3 might fill up some of my craving but I want more!

    Here is what I am looking and not looking for:

    I lost interest in turn based games .... (I think 99% RPGS in ds are turn based...? )
    Have the new pokemon....I know its turn base but still :P
    I like magic etc, rpg, level up if possible, definitely BOSSES , challenging BOSSES!
    Decent/Good graphics!
    I have heard of the new fire emblem but it looks like a strategy/turn based games so meh...

    I prefer the LAW2. It carries a decent amount of ammo and it has a good range.

    There's Heroes of Ruin (diablo like game), Crimson Shroud (not exactly a turn based rpg since it involves dices), Etrian Odyssey IV (its turn based but it can be pretty hard).. Well besides that I dunno.. There's the SMT games which are also rpg's, but one is turn-based and the other is an s-rpg like Fire Emblem.

    Just got tales of the abyss, tis pretty good. The same style as tales of symphonia on the gamecube and the story is well detailed (been a while since i played a game without wanting to skip all the dialogue).

    I'd rec Tales of the Abyss. You can change difficulty whenever you want.

    Don't knock FE: Awakening until you try it. There's a reason why it got a 92% on Metacritic.

    I hate the other FE games because they impose stupid class/experience/gold limits on your characters. They addressed quite a bit of that in FE:A.

    I love ToA. Luke may be annoying in the first half, he get 100% better once you past a point (about half i think.) The subtitle for Abyss is "To Know the Meaning of Birth."

    If you like ToS, ToA would be good.
