Yeah, the PC doesn't have much in the way of JRPG's (what you're calling "Console RPG's" ), except for a few sub-par ports. Your best bet is always going to be emulation, though if your PC can't handle Legend of Grimrock, you won't be able to handle more than the first couple generations of consoles. There's still some real gems from back then, if you haven't already played them (I assume since you don't mind indies that the graphics won't be an issue for you).
Otherwise, you're looking for a new PC or console, or waiting until some of the indie RPG's in development finally get released (And hope your rig can handle them). --- I feel a draft on my butt...
My laptop can handle a lot of modern games decently... it has a Core i3 3217 CPU running at 1.8 GHz and a GeForce GT 640M GPU. It can run some multiplatform games better than the 360 & PS3, but only if it's properly optimized for PC. Though it would be able to run everything better than those consoles if it wasn't bottlenecked by the CPU. --- Read the mania: http://www.fanfiction.net/~nonexistinghero In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.
Well, it's not turn-based and is only partially a RPG, but Recettear is great. --- Intel Pentium II OC @ 450 MHz | 128 Mb RAM | Falcon Northwest Special Edition Maxi Gamer Xentor 32 SE | 2x 4 Gb Seagate HDD
2 is only ok in comparison. And it isn't truly indie, but it's priced like one. If you have a 360 get it there (Arcade), PC port has some issues but still worth playing if you don't have a 360. --- How good doesn't character have to be...to be good?? - League_of_Noobs
Not sure if you'll be able to run them (Persona 3 really struggled on my 4.4ghz 3570k before pcsx2 updated) and they're not indie at all but Persona 3/4 are pretty much my favorite jrpgs, Persona 4 Golden is my favorite game of all time.
They're turn based dungeon crawlers, the combat isn't groundbreaking but I liked it, 3 was kind of obnoxious since the AI controls your team but you can indirectly get them to do what you want most of the time, 4 gives you the option of full control. It has a sort of pokedex (le grimoire) that you fill out with personas and you can carry 12 with you (only your healthbar). I felt like 3 had a better story and 4 had better characters but neither fails at the other aspect. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
As for kickstarter... there's a good amount of upcoming non-RPG titles I'm looking forward to (or with light RPG elements), but I can't say I've seen an RPG that's truly up my alley and well... either way, they've yet to release.
