I'd say you're wrong, but I respect your opinion. They're different enough to be hard comparison though.

 

I think I don't like it as much because I can't visualise how the Puyos are going to fall.

My issue with Puyo, is that I can never be competitive, because my brain simply cannot fathom the patterns for combos, like I can picture the way Tetris works. I can do enough to get through, but always fall short against anyone half decent. 

 

Both are great compliments to each other though, as evidenced by PPT.

It has fever mode, and if you're playing randoms you know you're going to get Puyo vs Puyo matches instead of your opponent potentially choosing Tetris.

This. I'd buy this for Puyo vs Puyo and (take note here SEGA and The Tetris Company) I'd buy a standalone Tetris game that is basically cut from PPT as well.

What's the benefit of this if you already own Puyo Tetris? "Extra characters" is not a valid answer.

 

It has the Puyo Puyo 2 rule set (and Fever's ruleset).

 

Only problem is the original Puyo and Puyo 2 are getting SEGA AGES releases, and will be online, too.

 

I'll buy all of them, obviously.

I've never taken PPT online. Can you not limit your games to just Puyo then?

 

Online, in Versus, you choose Puyo or Tetris on the character select screen. So because there’s no selection before searching there’s no filter for it. That said everyone gets a title depending on their rank and the balance between Puyo and Tetris played (ie mostly Puyo, mostly Tetris, or fairly even) so you get an idea what your opponent will pick before the match starts.

Still don't understand why this means anyone should care about this as opposed to PPT. Why are these things important?

 

Guaranteeing Puyo vs Puyo matches is a great shout though.

Tbh I don’t care about Fever mode, I was just listing something it has that PPT doesn’t.

 

If Tetris doesn’t interest you it’s cheaper than PPT, in case you don’t already own that. Speaking generally here btw, not specifically to you.

 

Personally I’ve used PPE when I wanted to play Puyo, if I go on PPT the temptation to just play Tetris is too strong.

Yup, and it even carried over my progress from Puyo Puyo ESports. Well all my losses! But I finally got a win online and did a 9 chain while doing so. Finally starting to get my head round Puyoing.

 

I’m also triple dipping for this price so will have it on PS4 and PC as well.

I am ruddy awful at Puyo still. But, what the hell, I am in. 

 

Gotta learn to chain properly. I really struggle telling the blues and purples apart though.

The first one I’ve found better recently as it’s been a bit more focused and has advice on when to move on. The second one was pretty much recommended reading but hard to take in in one go, split it into sections. The third one is good if you like videos.

 

I’d highly recommend getting PuyoSim as well, on both Android and iPhone. The pieces don’t fall so you can really think about where to place the piece when practicing. iPuyolator for iPhone (not sure about Android for this one, sorry) is also really good for just drawing setups without worrying about random pieces.

 

GTR is an amazing tool but don’t be too reliant on it, and don’t rush to learning it. I learnt it too early and don’t know what to do now if I can’t set it up!
