    "atb" is real time as far as I'm concerned.
     
    If the monsters will wail on you while you sit there, it's real time. Doesn't really matter if you're waiting for a bar to fill up before you act.

    Also, not to blow anyone's mind or anything but I'm pretty sure the font FFXIII uses for it's UI is the same font Mass Effect uses for the "Normandy" (and other places in the game) font on the ship.

    I just love the presentation in this game. It's so nice to look at, and the menu's are so polished. I'll buy it even if it does (hypothetically) have a throwaway storyline, just for the flashy menus! :p

    The game looks interesting, but I can't get over the fact that it's using corporate lingo like Synergy and Paradigm Shift.

    Great segment idea... they look kinda awkward sitting that close together on a tiny couch, though. :P
     
    As for FFXIII... I have almost no interest in any of the Final Fantasy games... >_>

    there more in depth than a quicklook but less scripted than a video review. i like it. now we need Ask Me Anything Throwback, where someone explains Dwarf Fortress to me.

    Now all they need is a way to scribble directly on the picture, like a NFL play analysis.

    But there are plenty of instances in games where you have to wait for a weapon to cool down or an animation to finish and you can't do anything then either. Just because there's a bar filling up on the screen doesn't make it any more turn based.
     
    Bottom line is that if the game is influenced by the speed you input commands, it's real time because real time is involved. If you can sit there for as long as you want and think out your next move, it's turn based.
