So I have to ask since I am on the fence with this one is this an RPG that is similar to old school RPGs like SNES Final Fantasy series? The reason I ask is cause I just want a nice relaxing RPG I dont want to have to time hits to do combos to attack or have to do extreme crafting mini games to get the best gear. (the town building or whatever it is that you need friend codes doesn't bother me) but I want something thats pretty simple battle wise. Basically something that isn't going to feel like a chore.

@Tasuki Its as traditional as it gets. This is old school meets new in a good way! Battle system is quite simple actually and although it's new all it really does for the most part is add turns if you default. There's a bit more to it but there are many ways to attack. If it's FF you're trying to recapture then you can't go wrong here. Even some of the battle music is still the same as FF. Great game and one of the most beautiful games to grace the system!

@Tasuki , The answer is YES! Simple turn based RPG where you can control the difficulty and the encounter rate. Good for grind heavy users and new to the genre alike.

Reminded me a lot of the SNES/PSone era FF games, but made a lot more accessible there's no SMRPG type combo's in this one its all traditional turn based style, the battle system definitely isn't a chore and the whole brave system thing is very easy to grasp early on, the only part I felt that dragged on was the story towards the end, but it is a long game took me 80 hours to finish, my over feeling where mostly positive though and I can't wait for the sequel.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

Wow ok sounds great. I still have the demo downloaded and really haven't played it much cause I have been very busy so I might mess around with that till I can buy the game. I just didn't want to buy it and it be more like the newer RPGs and find it too much of a time consumer and then be disappointed in it.

Not sure if BD will be for you then. Combat-wise, it depends on you how deep you want to get into it. On the surface there is the simple turn based with the twist that is the "Brave-Default" mechanic. You seem to be fine with that. However, there are deeper aspects to combat that you can delve into if you so choose. There is the way each weapon behaves with the Brave-Default method. If you get it right, you will be rewarded with a Special Attack option. There are "combat pieces" that you can put together and stamp a name on it and share it with others. Then there are the influences of the jobs that effect the effectiveness of the weapons.
I definitely would not consider combat in BD relaxing. You are constantly tweaking the various combat abilities together to find the one that is most synergystic for a particular character. During combat you have to consider whether to hold back or attack right away. The bosses are pretty smart. The AI seems to make their encounter very challenging.

I think you will find this game to be very much a time consumer. The biggest aspect to that is the rebuilding of the village. Depending on the number of villages you attract (via streetpass), it'll take you a certain amount of time to build up each building and each building have multiple levels.

The other is obviously obtaining all of the jobs and their respective skills (you get one each level).

So again, this game may seem like a throwback but as you begin to peel the layers, you will find that the game is far from being simple

As relating to the jobs, do most people lvl their jobs early on or just pick and choose? I am not used to having a lot of jobs to choose from...sorry if this seems a bit noobish to anyone.

@devinias I pick and choose. The good thing is the job system slowly gets you into it. You only start with the freelancer and it will slowly introduce you to the rest. You actually have to defeat the enimies that have the job skills you need. At present I only have 4 avalible to me after about 4 hours of play!

Well, I just got the first two side-quest jobs: thief and merchant...and realized there are a lot of jobs to master if I wanted to master them all to their full potential.

@devinias I see what you're saying now. You need to have character specialize. Not all of you're characters should learn all jobs. Take the ammount of jobs and divide them by 4. Some skills will work better with certain jobs though so be careful who learns what. Once you feel comfortable with who has learned what then start stacking the jobs on multiple character.

Traditional, old school, turn based, strategic RPG. Yes. No real button mashing. Other than "special" attacks, you don't have a time limit for anything, you can take your time going through it. The strategic element is if you choose the safe combat options by defaulting, or be brave and charge into the battle with all your might, as well as traditional enemy weaknesses and resistances.

In my xp, the game nudges you early on to adopt the classes that you encounter. This makes it easier to overcome the encounters and boss for that particular area otherwise your only other option would be to grind even more. After a certain point though, when I have obtained a significant amount of jobs, I'll start to strategize what type of character skills will best fit my style of gaming. I like my party to be very offensive oriented so my characters will be buffed with skills that will do high damage with very little defensive abilities.

Well I have all my town unlocked and leveled to at least 4. Every shop has at least someone on it. Problem is I have all this cool stuff but no money to spend it on lol. Most is quite expensive. At least I can use the special attack stuff right away. Does anybody know the max level of the shops in your town?

Now that I have the Vampire job, I wish I would have done that subquest earlier. I have a feeling that I missed one or two of the genome abilities from a boss or two. So heads up if you haven't gotten that far yet - you can do the Vampire job subquest as soon as you get the Templar job and you'll probably want to do it ASAP. It's the Blue Mage type class that learns enemy skills, some of which come from bosses that you won't have a chance to redo if you wait to do the Vampire quest.
