That's probably just EA talking, bare in mind that these are the same people that bound every button in DA2 to "awesome". I wouldn't put any weight behind those statements. Lets just hope that Bioware still has enough authority over their own production to maintain the quality standard set by the other two games.

Most of them seen a sequels/spiritual successor on portable systems such as Tierkreis, Wild Arms XF , VP: Covenant of the Plume, The Last Ranker, etc, and most of them flopped. :o

I wouldn't even count sRPG spinoffs like XF and Plume, since they are a very different type of game. Tierkreis comes close, but its not a proper Suikoden title either.

The smart thing to do would probably be to never actually reveal what Tali looks like.

Its sad that some great franchises died with the PS2. Suikoden, Wild Arms, Breath of Fire, just to name a few notable casualties.  I can't help but think that the move away from turn based battles is the reason we wont be seeing any of these games on a major home system any time soon. Better that then have them turn into hack and slash action games I suppose.

I actually liked BoF2. It was a pretty solid SNES era jRPG. Not the best, but far from the terrible game you make it out to be.

This better hit the EU PSN. If it does, its an instant purchase for me.

Well, its made it over to the PSN. So I think Ill be getting it soonish.

No such thing as the "best RPG ever". This will only decide which RPG has the most dedicated spam base. If I was a betting man, my money would be on FFVII. That game has some of the most dedicated and twisted fanboys ever to grace the internet. So, I assume they would be more than willing to spend weeks juggling IPs and accounts each day, just to rack up votes for their favourite game.

This may be a bit random, but I just noticed this thread has actually been going for over two years now. Impressive.

By your definition, Starcraft is also a turn based game. Let me put it this way, if you drop your pad and stop issuing out commands, the game will still keep going. That alone means that the game is NOT turn based. Anyway, I'm not budging on the FFXIII thing, and this is really getting off topic.
746  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: jRPGs and Turn Based Battles on: July 23, 2011, 10:56:44 AM
Bottom line, its not a turn based system.
747  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: jRPGs and Turn Based Battles on: July 23, 2011, 10:44:36 AM
I meant "real time" in the sense that character actions are simultaneous and independent of each other.
748  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: jRPGs and Turn Based Battles on: July 23, 2011, 10:34:53 AM
FFXIII is turned based but a lot faster than the previous games.

FFXIII is not turn based. Its an action jRPG with menu driven commands. Its like saying WoW is turn based. Everything happens in real time while you only loosely control a single character because the rest are being managed by the AI, there are no "turns" to speak of, just a regenerating action bar.
749  Media / Single-Player RPGs / jRPGs and Turn Based Battles on: July 23, 2011, 08:56:42 AM
The current trend in jRPGs is to replace all turn based combat with action orientated button mashing. Now I do understand this to some degree, but don't actually like it.
My personal take on this, is that with the right tweaks, turn base battles can still function in this and future generations of gaming. More interactivity during battles, less downtime during unnecessarily long animation sequences and maybe a little more strategy.

So my question is this. Do turn based battle systems still have a place in modern games, or have the developers taken the right path while I just refuse to move on.

After seeing some gameplay vids, Id say that this is essentially SFIV with Tekken characters thrown in. I was hoping to see more of a blend of both. Maybe slowing down the game a tiny bit and adding some more close combat combinations.
