I'm almost done with Elfaria; I don't know if I can finish it by today but I should have the final post up on Monday at the latest. I'll post about the next three games after Elfaria, which I'll be skipping, then I can change the date of this post later and delete this section.
Burai: Legend of the Eight Jewel Heroes
This was originally a PC88 game that was ported to a number of other computers and consoles, including the Super Famicom. This site includes it as one of the 9 worst SFC RPGs, and everything else I've read about it says that it's a bad port of a game that wasn't all that good to begin with. So I'll skip it.
This game is listed as an SRPG on a few sites but it seems like a strategy game instead, and other sites classify it as strategy. It doesn't look like it fits my "named characters" criteria, at least. Skip.
Might and Magic II
Great PC game, but I'm skipping all ports of Western computer games in this blog -- I've already played the PC version anyway. Zenic did the Genesis version, and the CRPG addict did the computer version.
So next up after Elfaria is Xak: The Art of Visual Stage. This is a remake of a PC game but it's the first action RPG on the blog and seems decent enough, so I'll give it a try.
