Mother died for us. We are brothers. We hate each other. He wants to find mother. I want to kill him. I need to kill him. The planet cries for us.

Who are we?

Mother an android? Other more specific machine/creature? Yesish because of intellegence, so its not really defined to quite be a person or a machine?

RPG about one year old? Two? Three? Four? Five? More than ten?

The antagonist brother dies several times before the end? Does he go down for good at any point? Any other major 'bad guys'?

Type of 'special powers' relevent to the storyline? Are their powers consitered special in their time/place of origin? Residence?

Wants to find mother as in her dead 'body'(in the loosest sence of the terms)? Wants to revive her? Thinks/believes she is still alive?

Short weekend trips to our camp, nothing major or special. I wish more.

Never played those games(Drat!). Always wanted to though.
And I even read up on Sephiroth at wikipedia thinking it could be the the answer, then dismissed it as silly.(Double drat!)

Is this Final Fantasy 7 where Cloud is trying to kill Sephy and Sephiroth is trying to bring back Genova? (not sure if they are brothers... but in FF7 Advent Children a reference is made to them being bros) SPOILER - It is indeed Final Fantasy VII, IMHO one of the best written RPGs ever made! Sephiroth and Cloud are two 'Soldiers' mysteriously linked to a project and being called 'Jenova'. Sephiroth does not take kindly to his creation and wants to destroy the entire planet, and Cloud realizes that Sephiroth must be stopped at all costs.

And Sephy is trying to get Genova's head so he can bring her back to life??? Yes? He was trying to get as much of her as he could, but yes!

Never played those games(Drat!). Always wanted to though. Find an old copy for the playstation - if you own one - and have at it. You will NOT be disappointed!

And I even read up on Sephiroth at wikipedia thinking it could be the the answer, then dismissed it as silly.(Double drat!) Always go with your gut instinct!

Another random shot, just in case Puzzlover isn't correct: Golden Sun? Nope, lol

No playstation, almost bought one at a garage sale, but didn't.
I see a trend here. I almost do things that are good, but then don't.

I see a trend here. I almost do things that are good, but then don't. Again, go with that gut instinct!
Lovely puzzle. New, fresh, exciting. Maybe I will go get a playstation now. Glad I could be of service!
