After taking a breather from JA2 for a little while, I've come back full force and with two new ideas for JA3. Frankly, I would have loved to see them in UB, but it's a little late for that:

1) Multiple Endings
It would be nice to have more than one defined ending for the game. Although JA2 has great replay value with the slew of mercs and tactical situations, it always geared to the same final showdown with the same results. Having game events impact the possible ending would be fabulous. Even something as simple as an end-game rating of your overall performance would be supersweet. For those that know Metal Gear Solid, at the nd of the game you were given a codename based on your performance. It also spewed out a whack o stats you never actively followed during the game such as rounds fired, time elapsed, hit ratio etc. JA2 does this in the profiles, but Id love to see a quick summation of total carnage! http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/ubb/smile.gif Oh, and cinematic multiple endings.

2) This is the one I desperately want to see in all my favorite character-driven games. The paper doll inventory system. For those that don't know, it's alot like the old paper cut-out dolls where you would put different items on the paper doll in whatever fashion you wanted. The earliest game I remember playing that used it is Ultima VII: Serpent Isle. More recently, Rage of Mages 2 (god awful game, but the inventory rocked). Instead of 'slots', when you equipped a weapon, the item was visually placed in a static representation of your full-body merc's hands. Don a helmet and it shows up on your paper doll. It just looks so damn cool, and really allows you to see what they have on them in a split second.
I'd pay SirTech to include this feature...

Hopefully these are new or undiscussed suggestions. We seem to rehash a lot of stuff in this wish forum.
As always, commentary is open and welcome!
