Thanks for the links everyone. Just now getting back to this, having two jobs and being in the middle of moving sucks when trying to get recreational stuff done.

On a few counts, I am going more old-school for some of the genres. So they are more in the Nintendo era. I personally preferred the older castlevania's and mega man's to the newer ones. I have always been a retro gamer though. The overall setting I was thinking something along SSB lines...or even Warrior Orochi...something big that tore rifts and brought unlikely people closer together.

Stuff that was downloadable from the links, I have on my laptop now. Stuff that is still in forums, I am currently trying to sift through and Copy over to a word doc. Once again thanks for all your help and any further links are always appreciated.
