While I haven't played Vesperia yet I can say I thought Octopath was good, not great. The combat is a good turned based system and it looks nice for the retro 16 bit style they were going for. There is a subjob system with skills you learn and that you can mix and match for some depth.Octopath is $40 today, debating this or tales any suggestions to scratch my Jrpg itch.
The story and the way it's laid out however is pretty repetitive; 8 characters with 4 story chapters each, each chapter maybe an hour in length. That would be fine if literally every chapter(other then one of them) follows the format of: Go to town>talk to some people and get sent to a dungeon nearby>fight boss of dungeon, end of chapter. Some character stories are better than others, with a couple of them just being kind of bad.
