I was 12 when I beat DQ2. An issue of Nintendo Power's Counselor's Corner had a map of Rhone's pitfalls (not treasures though), so at least I didn't have to screw with that. Finding Roge Fastfinger required me to write to the NP Counselors. How deceptively simple it turned out to be. NP also had the Staff of Thunder glitch in Classified Information. The last bit of info from NP was to use the Eye of Malroth in Hargon's castle, and I believe the need to reset to get the Water Flying Cloth. Other than that, I used the insert map and put people's clues together. The island cave where you find the Eye of Malroth- oh man, did that take awhile. Finding the boss at the lighthouse to get the Star Crest....that lighthouse was no fun either. There was no internet, and I could only use the resources I had. The day I beat it, I went to the kitchen and felt like I'd accomplished an amazing feat.

2: Toilet sitting time is one of the more common times I use for Den posting. There's a scary thought...chances are if you read one of my posts, my fat butt is plopped on the throne. Sorry if anyone loses their lunch with that imagery.
That explains all your crappy posts! ;-)
Oh, don't act like your $#!% don't stink, Platty. That pun reeked as well.
Ass my wife, it does :-)
Wow. This discussion went down the toilet.
Maybe a forum mod will just step in and wipe these posts away.
How coincidental. I haven't paid any heed to this thread since I last wrote on it. I saw all these responses at 10:06 AM, EST, as I sit on my toilet doing my morning constitutions. Yes, my lap top is sitting on my bare legs as I write this. Too strange, too funny!
Don't get me wrong, they're great games, but I think that North America and Europe could use them on the 16-bit or greater level.
Personally, though, I found the color palette eye-hurting. The same can be said of Facebook and Youtube- I personally become groggy from the white background. When I come to the Den, the nice soft black makes me relax.
Do you guys forget that without Square-Enix we would never have VIII? IV? V? VI? IX? Swords? Rocket Slime? Joker?
Jesus. Enjoy what you have. Remember that? We aren't entitled to Dragon Quest, but I feel like you guys think you are.
Honestly, the topic should be "Do the fans deserve Square-Enix?" because you guys don't sound appreciate at all what they have done for you guys in the past decade.
I'm honestly baffled by this whole community. I remember a long time ago, we were all excited about new Dragon Quest games (IV, V, and VI all announced on a single day) and everyone was thanking Square-Enix for everything they have done. I remember those times. It was when this community was an amazing place. They didn't have to make these games. Hell, I doubt it was even worth it for them to translate them all for a mid-to-low return. They could have used that work for other things, but they didn't. We were all so happy back then and now there's a possibility that there won't be another Dragon Quest game or someone's let's play got shut down you guys are going crazy and losing your minds as if it isn't fair.
What happened to you guys? I'm thankful for what Square-Enix has given us, what about you?
Nintendo most likely doesn't care. It's not like they are putting up something inherently bad. Capcom put all 3 on the Wii VC so my guess is they put all of their Wii VC games onto the Wii U. Nintendo probably would only have stopped it if the game did not meet their standards or was a buggy mess.
Certainly not inherently bad, but decidedly askew- looks somewhat unprofessional. I understand that any company is going to bleed you for money, just as an employee bleeds as much from an employer as possible. If you're trying to bleed money from your customers, don't make it obvious. Kinda like when I've sold on ebay: write up a hefty, promotional description, be able to wheel and deal, but don't come out letting everyone know you're gouging your heart out.I've made a little money selling trading cards on ebay, and I'll acknowledge something being the rarest in a set, but I won't call it outright "rare" unless it truly is.
When I sell stuff, I like to be honest about the product, while trying to make a buyer more entranced than they should be. It was great making 4 bucks in profit buy hyping up a Hannah Montana jigsaw puzzle on ebay, which cost me $1 at the Dollar Tree.
Actually, all this talk is making me want to get back into ebay sales. That was some fun times.
Edit: Is "honest liar" a good description of what I'm getting at?
I happily shared your vid on my FB page. Hope that helps you outreach!
I've decided that if you're against name-calling, you're the juvenile. Dwaine's use of the word twat was so dead on accurate, I have to say even profanities are not enough for the sheer anger I'm feeling. Saigan's vids are awesome! Despite the lack of English, he makes the game fun as can be. He helps make it so if they were to ever release more games, you wanna buy them.
This not only enforces my refusal to purchase non-DQ items from SE, but for the first time in my life, I am actually thinking about not giving them ANY business, including DQ. Maybe I'll just resort to my original plan of learning Japanese and purchasing second-hand Japanese imports.
And red, if you look at cannock_princess's profile, you will see she is 16. :w Her parents are likely "Fearful of using their debit cards" on anything but a Wal-Mart. And likely even there.
Money isn't an issue. But you can't just buy crap with a prepaid Visa from Ebay anymore. You gotta have a verified card of some kind. I'm gonna have to use my college pre-paid debit soon enough 'cause it has my name on it. :/
Dwaine has a point, however. Press your parents, if your PC isn't pretty damn new, that emulator's gonna be wonky. Shouldn't be a problem since Ebay itself has a two-sided protection wall.
Really? I find it odd only because my mother is 71 and has no issues ordering online. Like she says, once its used at a store, its in the eternal system of computers around the world.
I'm looking for a good emulator so I can play DQ8 without a PlayStation 2 (my parents won't let me get one ) However, I'm worried about getting junk on my computer. Does anyone know (preferably from experience) of a safe-ish emulator and DQ8 rom? Thanks.
They won't let you get one? What is the $40 to them, a years savings?
