#478419 Proud of my son!

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 24 October 2016 - 07:41 PM

While at work today, my wife told me over the phone that my 12 year old son beat DQ Builders' story this afternoon. Gotta say I'm proud- he beat a DQ game I'm yet to even touch (although as soon as I beat 7, Builders is my next conquest).

I have a bad feeling about DQ Builders. That's the game I don't see selling well.


7 at least sold out of it's shipment.


My local store sold plum out.

#477552 Final Impressions Thread

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 18 October 2016 - 11:42 AM

Just revived the Devine Shrine last night. I must say that thanks to major job leveling,the only boss to give me any challenge was the cloud at Cirrus Sanctum. A whole 4 rounds of combat.

Overall, the game feels smoother than the original. The story is easier to grasp, and there's virtually no way to miss a fragment.

I still think the fairy at the shrine is out of place. Not a dark enough character. Someone akin to Gnostic would have been better.

I wish I could have named the Haven. In the original, I named the immigrant town Dialac after the town from the past. I was hoping to rebuild Regenstein.

Overall, still loving it. I loved the first game. Things have gotten better for the most part. I like the whole concept of subplots comprising the game. Makes evrything feel fresh.

I only wish I could take that club from a certain mayor and use it on his head...

Incidentally,the dude's link leads to some tweet by someone claiming to be an astronaut. In fact, his link ain't no link- I searched the text of a tweet. And Google shows me nobody famous named astronaut Claire.

Just shared the article on my 2 DQ pages. I added that it can be supplemented with Tweets and Facebook comments. The weekend's here, so I can dedicate some time to riling the folks.

#474232 Screw all of you

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 29 September 2016 - 01:46 AM

Wow... this is bizarre.  Not to mention distressing, and unwelcome.  What brought this on?
Whatevs.  Find balance and acceptance elsewhere, you wont find it here, with that hair-trigger temper.
Still, good luck wherever you go.

I have no room to talk as far as hair trigger temper. I feel bad for going overboard on my own post, and frankly I want to apologize for my own statements. Had me a bad day, and when I saw that poser statement I blew my cork.

Seriously, what the hell is it about fandoms that bring about this holier than thou attitude?

"Oh, so you're a fan of something! Congrats! You know which Jedi scratched his balls in scene 3 of the first movie. You have the right to gloat since the Queen of England found you worthy of getting the key to the whole damn country of France. Go ahead with the moronic insults like noob and fanboy. You've earned it since you know which Jedi had jock itch."

And sorry if this sounds judgemental, but between video games sites, MTG sites and the egotistical weirdos I've met at my local game store, I just see a lot of it in the nerd realm. No, not everyone there, but enough for me to just wanna say that the reasons that D&D have a negative stigma have nothing to do with the religious over-zealotry of the early 80s. Its fine to have an opinion, a passion etc, but man, it just permeates gaming so much.

So if people feel like calling me a sheep humper, feel free. The life which I embrace has some lowlives too. I have a tattoo of the famous Yosemite Sam "Back off!" mudflap. Feel free to mock me for it. But I don't have any friends who spam boards deliberately insulting everyone as posers.

WOW! I've been playing DQ since 1989 as well, but if I called someone a poser due to less exposure, I'd be quite the especial touch hole.

Listen son, nobody is impressed by the fact someone has been in a fandom longer, and frankly people who do that are pathetic little $#!&tards that compensate their meaninglessness by being part of an "in" crowd. Sadly, they tend do get looked at as fringe. Don't mean to insult anyone hear, but that culture is why I seldom invite anyone at my local game store to my place to play MTG. Their culture is not mine aside from games.

No offense to anyone here, but your post embodies why I detest nerd culture. Pathetic watching a social outcast rant and rave while pretending their fandom bears merit.

I don't rip on anyone for liking hip hop, liking Star Trek or digging anything else I personally detest. But when you get to the point you $#!&@ like a toddler and act like a fandom makes you an important member of society, you've hit rock bottom.

#472069 My first impressions

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 17 September 2016 - 09:10 AM

I kinda miss the dark tone the shrine originally had when you stepped up to the pedestals to place shards. It had a proper dark tone. Now you have a cutesy fairy who operates the legendary and mysterious temple with the attitude of a fast food worker slinging you a Big Mac. Hell, the pedestal room is set up like a McDonald's menu to boot.

Overall, the changes were needed to smooth things out, but I wish they had picked a darker character to host things. Maybe a stereotypical wizard that speaks in semi-riddles. I'm ready to finish Ballymoral, and at least the dark tone there has been nicely kept intact.

#461319 Calling it: E3 2016 will have the most DQ announcements for English

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 09 June 2016 - 01:37 PM

In all honesty, the vastly improved treatment of the DQ fanbase can possibly bolster sales for their other products. When you treat a large sum of people like outcasts simply because they are not your biggest group, your reputation will suffer. Let's pretend there were only 100,000 DQ fans in the US (though in reality likely far more)- that's 100,000 more people bringing down your reputation in addition to the larger fanbases being pissed at you. Its the snowball effect.


If you need to sell 10,000,000 copies to break even, you don't want people you essentially abused possibly costing you the sale of,let's pick a random number and say, 500,000 copies. That 5% loss could easily break you. 


Making nice with us was wise. Let's say every DQ fan now pays heed to the company and finds more titles they like. Would you like to sell several hundred thounsand more copies of various non-DQ products? Would you like those people to do a little word of mouth with their friends? 


SE finally learned the following:


1) You can't piss off your big fan bases with crappy quality. DQ aside, the FF14 fiasco and such really burned their core American fanbase.


2) Thanks to the Phil Rogers blog essentially blowing up in their face with no sheep coming out to play, they learned their consumers are not fools. They were expecting sheeple to type FF and KH so they could act like heroes. 85% of the posts were angry DQ fans.


3) Don't blame a series for not selling well when your own ineptitude of marketing is to blame.


4) Your company will gain more respect by putting out quality for all fans. If you only seek to sell mega-multi-million hits, your board of directors likely suffers from narcissistic personality disorder. At the rate SE was going, employee insurance rates were bound to skyrocket due to a dire need of mind altering prescriptions and mandated group therapy sessions.


Bottom line: be reasonable with DQ, don't drop another half-assed FF game, and remember that the KH folks are not ignorant children just because they like a game with Disney characters.
