All these look super dope. Not gonna lie. Granblue dropped a little since someone mentioned yesterday single player was only 20 hours, that hurts. I'll still buy it but not day one.

Sorry shin don't shoot the messenger lol if it makes you feel any better the online portion can be played with ai as far as I'm aware.

I plan on buying it.

shinoff2183102d ago

I'll still check it out but when I read that I just got kinda bummed out lol. I was looking forward to it for so long. I had a suspicion I was gonna get some bad news about it once I found out it was online also. I did see it has alot of sidequest and stuff and what you just said about ai partners.

IMO, every fan of turn-based RPGs should check out the Legend of Heroes games. I've only played within the 'Trails' series myself though. Still, the story and characters are top-notch IMO.

Legend of heroes I swear every time I go to really really start this, we get news of more and more older ones coming back out re released. I think news about the sky series being the latest rumor. So I wanna start but I won't let myself. It's fking torture. I did play cold steel 1 on ps3 and it was fantastic (didn't beat or anything but I knocked off a good half the game)

With 3 and 4 cold steel being released for ps5 I need to track down 1 and 2 for ps4 since it's said they can't release 1 and 2 of the cold steel. I sold my os3 copies when news of ps4 ones broke. Then when those came out I didn't have the money to buy them at the time. 2018 19 or so.

If they do re lease the sky ones hopefully they don't do ps owners dirty like last time. Wasn't a huge deal and I prefer my ps over switch anyday but it's said features on switch were better, but not enough to sway me to buy on switch

Persona 3 Reload and Metaphor for me.

Persona 3 Reload, Like a Dragon Success Proves The Viability of Turn-Based RPGs

Nameer from eXputer: "With Persona and Like a Dragon, SEGA delivers a bold middle finger to the idea that turn-based games are outdated and I couldn't be happier."

Barlos4d ago

I love RPGs and spent 151 hours with Infinite Wealth. Currently playing through Rebirth and Reload, and I have to say I'm far more engaged with Reload because I prefer the turn based combat. I'm not a fan of the real time combat in Rebirth. If the game and story wasn't so good, I likely wouldn't entertain it at all. I much prefer turn based games.

CrimsonWing694d ago

As someone who prefers turn-based I’ve real-time, I can definitively say I would choose Rebirth’s battle system over everything. It’s the perfect fusion of turn-based and real-time and I get. Rush using it over turn-based. That being said I do like the turn based for Infinite Wealth.

Barlos3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

I agree, even over 150+ hours I never once found the combat in Infinite Wealth a chore, I loved every minute of it. I can't agree with Rebirth's system though. There's something about it that just doesn't click with me. I prefer pure turn based combat for sure. That's why I also enjoy Persona's combat so much - in particular P5 Royal. With all the Persona fusing options it adds a lot of depth, and you really can create the perfect Persona for you.

Same thing, nostalgia and story. My biggest issues in rebirth are combat, and not being able to talk to npcs.

Persona 3 reload and infinite weath boasts sales of 1 million at launch on multiple platforms.

And Rebirth launched to 2 million which is seen as concerning on one platform.

Why is it more viable to make turn based games when they sell half as much?

Theses articles should at least highlight turn based games that sell the same or more than non turn based games to make a coherent argument. Like Pokemon or Honkai Star Rail.

Ironmike3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Rebirth sales are do wn there's multiple articles stating it hasn't sold as well I don't y game is fantastic but it hasn't done was well hope they do 3 as spent a lot time on both remake and rebirth but I like both turn based and live action

raWfodog3d ago

The author acts like turn-based RPGs are a dying genre. Recent successful games such as Octopath Traveler series, Sea of Stars, the Trails series, Honkai Star Rail, and Baldurs Gate 3 (mentioned in the article) would prove that there is still market out there hungry for them. I’m blessed enough to love both turn-based and action rpg games.
