Far back as I can remember I was in love with role playing games. From discovering the hobby with buying Dungeons and Dragons at a garage sale to playing Ultima 3 on my C-64. Role playing games allow us an escape from everyday life. Now NIS (the creator of the Disgaea series) have created a new series called The Guided Fate Paradox. But is this a journey that you will want to go on or should you just stay home?

The plot behind The Guided Fate Paradox centers around a 17 year old named Renya. He goes on to say that he is very unlucky and has never won anything in his life. While in a mall he comes across a cute girl in a maid outfit. She coerces him to spin the wheel as he might win a prize and he eventually does so. It turns out he has won the grand prize and the prize is that he is to become God. Renya is stunned and at first doesn’t believe her but it turns out she is an angel named Liliel. The angel transports him to Celestia and explains that his job is to alter the fates of the people that pray to him.

What Renya has to do is enter the Fate Revolution Circuit and explore the areas within. In these dungeons various monsters manifest as the persons fears and slaying these monsters help them overcome these doubts. This is one of the most interesting concepts I have ever seen in an RPG and the story is very engaging with cutscenes and great voice acting.

The dungeons that you enter are randomly generated almost giving you a rogue-like experience. Each time you enter a dungeon you will encounter different enemies, various traps and gimmicks that can hinder your progress. Unlike other games where the action occurs in real time this is a turn based game.

Guided Fate Paradox is a "mystery dungeon" style game. In short this game is way better than it really has a right to be. Mystery Dungeon games are a bit of a niche market, but this one does its genre proud with a slew of great features. One of the biggest hurdles to random dungeons is starting at Lvl1 each go around and never getting a real edge, which can be tough if you're not a strong player. NIS combated this with their usual super-buffing of characters, there is a well designed tile upgrade system that allows to earn permanent character boosts. The graphics are pleasant and crisp though they're lacking in animation during cut-scenes. No matter the seriousness or silliness of a situation the character overlays don't really react. In a curious twist the story is rather well thought out and reflects a lot on the concept of being "used" for the benefit of other people. I highly recommend this game.

I love NIS for their uber strategy role playing games with crazy high levels and huge cast of characters that you can use. The Guided Fate Paradox is another one of their variants that falls outside of that, at least for me, winning formula.

Game play is very similar to Izuna, where you move around a grid map one block at a time. Each move or action you take causes all enemies on the map to move. I'm not a fan of this style of game play because it can be mind numbingly easy or impossibly hard depending on where enemies spawn and how big your level gap is when you start trading blows.

Your main character, the only one you control directly, restarts at level 1 each stage. Finishing the stage or using an exit will dump those temporary levels into your Total Level count which raises base stats and unlocks other power ups over time. I'm good with that, it's a nice take on leveling up. You unlock stat boosting holy symbols by leveling your gear, which take a huge stat cut when the gear caps at the current level. This can only be reset at base and only up to rank 6. After that you have to find a random floor, or so the guide tells me.

The soft caps, limited ability to grind, and the single playable character + single AI team format aren't really what NIS is famous for, so that's why this game lost one star in my review. If you love Disgaea, Makai Kingdom, Phantom Brave, LaPucelle Tactics, etc... this isn't the game you're looking for.

So I finished the game after two weeks of very casual (1 ~ 2 hours a day) gaming. The 10 chapters feel short, especially after they stop breaking them in half. When I reached post game it all fell apart though.

As soon as I saw this game I knew I would love it. A roguelike from NIS? who can beat that!? I was further strengthened in my belief by the fact that most of the people that had problems had them because "its too hard" or "its not disgaea". I question why anyone would go into a game thinking its going to be like disgaea simply because its from the same company. They can only make one game, apparently.

Anyways, this game did not disappoint.

First, the plot. The plot of the game is very interesting. In this game, you are god. Using your powers, you grant the prayers of mortals by destroying the aspects that keep them from changing their destiny in a parrelel world, which is synced to some extent with the real world. The story progresses after you reach the end of each story level in a dungeon.

You have to It is the PERFECT DIFFICULTY, if you bother to look at the tutorial(which most people DON'T). The controls are not intuitive. If you stupidly walk up and just press 'attack', then yes, your going to die. But anyways. The "Aberrations" get stronger as you go through the game, and eventually require more advanced plans and levels. For example, you can use the "glove weapon" to do a comet upper attack, which does damage and picks up the enemy, and then throw it away for you angel companion to defeat. At the end of each dungeon, your levels will be reset to 1. But fortunately, there are many ways to keep growing stronger. As you use equipment during the dungeon, it maxes after a time. This is called bursting. for each gear you 'burst' you get a token to place on a sphere grid, similiar to FFX, to increase whatever stat you want permanently. Moreover, this also increases the rate of growth when you do level up.
