Gurk III has a really novel and fun combat mechanic with turn based battles that play out on a SRPG style battlefiend requiring you position characters in battle formations (melee characters have to move next to enemies). The story is plain but it's got really great world exploration with diverse environments, random battles, and great chiptunes. In my opinion Gurk III is better than Doom & Destiny.

Gurk III is an awesome game. I will say some of my favorite aspects of it are rolling and choosing your characters and the epic chiptunes. They remind me of melodic black metal.

Don't be sorry. I was completely unaware of the unfinished story. I was always distracted by other RPG's before I could get to Ash 2. The little I did see was the new battle mechanics which seemed to be cool.. It's too bad they didn't continue. Hopefully what undeadcow said is true.
