    Grimrock is the only modern blobber worth playing, I have no idea what you're on about.

    Turn Based is simply the civilized thing to do, like wearing clothes or living in a house.

    None technically, I assumed it was jap shit because I think that's what some JRPGs do.
    Or rather Septerra Core came to mind, I think. :lol:

    Did Anachronox do that too? I don't remember.

    Btw, Septerra Core is the worst JRPG and Anachronox is the best.

    Bullshit.

    I played 20 mins of Wizardry 8, and the character creation screen alone is worth the money.

    Strange Fellow happy?

    He said there are no good modern blobbers. I simply stated why he was wrong.

    I consider 90’s and up to be modern. Plus isn’t Grimoire really good? I haven’t played it but that’s considered a great modern blobber.

    Well, Wizardry 8 is modern enough.
    What's the alternative anyway ? To play Bard's Turd 4 ?

    It should be either turn-based or real-time. rtwp is an unholy abomination.

    FF7 did that. I mean FF has experimented with many types of combat systems with varying success. DQ has always been true turn based though :obviously:

    FF 12 had a really good real time with pause. It was slow enough where you were never like "what hell just happened"

    DQ was phase-based until DQ11, which was dumbed down with TB.

    Fake news. I just finished playing DQ9. That isn’t phased based. It’s obviously turn-based.

    EDIT: The easiest example to tell it is turn-based is that you can affect the order of your attacks if you cast haste (or whatever the spell is called).

    I addition, you also have abilities that allow you to bypass turn order and make the first attack regardless of the enemy’s speed/attack turn.

    RTwP is for impatient declinefags who still want to be able to tell themselves they are monocled for not playing action games.

    Real time with pause is when someone makes real time game and realizes that you can't play this shit like that and tries to salvage situation by giving player active pause button.

    Now instead of neatly organized game-play you have clusterfuck to micromanage more than turn based game in which everything is neat and tidy.

    + thanks to real time gameplay you can stuff filler mobs everywhere something which doesn't work in turn based games as anyone with two eyes will notice that those filler fights are bad bad bad bad BAD.

    There's a declaration phase and a resolution phase. The fact Agility affects when actions are resolved doesn't make it TB, that's absurd. If you're suggesting only simultaneous resolution is phase-based, you don't know what you're talking about.

    I love how TB is for people with a galaxy brain while in reality you just can't keep up and need everything presented at a pace that my 5-year-old can deal with.
