#428972 No Joke! DQM: Joker 3 is coming to Japan

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 15 July 2015 - 08:58 AM

I did not like Joker 2 all that much. I actually kept a small record on paper, and the rate at which you scout even in the high 90s percentile was outright dumb: WAY too many "failed to scouts". Joker 1 was perfectly balanced and fun. I got sick of Joker 2. I wish we'd gotten pro for the extra storyline, but frankly my opinion of this game is not high at all. 


I'll announce this on my pages, but on this board I will add: if this ever came stateside I'd likely buy it only to boost DQ sales. I would go in cautiously. Who knows, maybe it has returned to the balanced ways of the first one.

If it never gets a release, then hopefully in the future people will secretly do these things and release them anonymously.


Thanks for all the hard work guys!

#426364 DQ Heroes Marketing Genius

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 21 June 2015 - 09:44 PM

Being intelligent does not equate to being competent.  After Iwata stepped down, things seemed to improve.


Until yesterday, DQH was their FB page's cover photo. Today it is KH3. Whether we want to admit it or not, they have been providing fan service in some form. Type-0 was released, KH3, and, whether you give a rat's ass about it or not, the FF7 remake. 3 years ago I never would have believed that we'd even get the DQ mobile games, and I was planning on importing DQH. Hell, they even localized party chat in DQ4, which they could've dummied out and simply clone the non-Japanese DS version.


We're not the only fans who have been harping on them. The FF people have been screaming 7 remake for years, and they were adamant about Type-0. I can't remember how long ago people were spamming KH3.


Our corner of the SE fanbase has long been calling out their ineptitude. We've been the outcasts the most, so its not unlikely for us to jump on every perceived error.


I'm not planning on any non-DQ purchases from them until I see how the DQ franchise pans out, but I can say that I see A LOT more positive comments from all fan bases than I did even a year ago. They have to keep everyone happy.


I do wonder if the entire FF7 PC version on PS4 presentation was actually designed as a self-deprecating joke. "Let's try a classic bone-headed move because we deserve the heat, them reveal the treasure at the end with a wink". Vince McMahon became a billionaire by taking on the role of a true a-hole and allowed himself to be humiliated as a character to keep the fans buying tickets and PPVs.


I'm just not getting the same BS vibe from SE that I have in recent years.


That said, I peeked into my local Gamestop tonight after work, and I saw nothing from SE near the windows. 


Let's see how things pan out across the board for the next few months. Just my 2 cents.


Edit: I should add, when did we EVER get a collector's edition for anything DQ?

I'll concede that FF Whatever is being released in 3 days and it'll be a few months for DQH. I'd give it a couple weeks. Meanwhile, I'll check my local Gamestop and see what's there. 


Dwaine, PM me a a week or 2 and if this isn't turned around, please alert me. I'll contact Drew at OpHero and we can set up posts, which often lead to people spamming SE on FB.

#426191 Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light - English SEA Release

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 19 June 2015 - 11:00 PM

No thank you. I can take an app with me.


Plus, Facebook games can be intrusive and over-sharing at times for your Facebook friends unless you make a bunch of tweaks to privacy settings.



You could always make a fake FB account.


I have one and the reason I made it was because of a gut feeling I had. So, story time:


I won full legal custody of my oldest son in 2005. His mother stopped showing to court and lost her visitations, etc. When I made a FB account, I was quick to block her and her family.


Last year, when my son was 9, I had a weird feeling come over me. Something told me to check her profile. I made a fake FB account and sure enough, 2 days earlier, she made a post with a pic of our son, saying he had been wrongfully taken and that she hadn't seen him in 10 years (despite the fact he was 9). Her sister left a comment saying she'd found an address to get ahold of him. I had my step daughter's Dad (whom I'm actually good friends with, go figure), take a screen capture.


Sure enough, a week or so later, she mailed my son a letter saying I was a druggy, a boozer, etc., and that she fought for a year to get him back (LOL).


Nothing else came of it. As much strife as I've had with her, I do hope she has a good life. Since she moved to Florida, it is #1 on the list of states I do not plan on moving to.


Point being, you could always have an account saying your name is Ted Nugent and play without issue. And if you have legit means to keep tabs on someone, its a handy option.

#426008 Check out the mega-trolls at work

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 18 June 2015 - 01:30 PM

Despite my rants on the SE blog, I will say that I've had a huge interest in Heroes since I first saw footage of the Japanese version, which I was originally gonna import.


My rants were meant to call out perceived falsehoods, not say that I'm not excited for DQH. 


I actually wanted DQH more than DQ7, since I feel the PS version to be acceptable- but I am a very small minority in that regard. When they said the fans as a whole demanded DQH more, I spoke the truth- the masses want 7- my opinion is certainly not the popular one, and I admit it.


In a sense I swallowed my pride (which could use a dash of Tobasco sauce).

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 17 June 2015 - 08:17 PM

It's also very possible he had no real idea as to the actual timeline about fan demand and DQH, but was aware fans were avidly demanding DQ, and some were likely asking for DQH specifically and in combination with the other, more prominent requests (7 is like THE big cahoona).


Though whether it's just PR, and they simply rewrote it in English writing it as though this was the most requested (which it wasn't...even Slime Mori Mori 3 has seen more requests), or he wasn't really aware of the fullness of the situation, yeah, it does feel a little disingenuous.


Personally, the change of the Facebook page from DQH to Dragon Quest, is suggestive, but then, they've put out so many suggestive elements over the last two years, and have done little to nothing with it (read: nothing).  Which implies there's no meaning behind the statements.


Well, anyway, it'll be along post.  A very long post.  I hope they've the patience to read it.



LOL, apparently redneck is a dirty and profane word ;)

I've been called a dirty old man before :)

Some of the statements in this article infuriated me.  Redneck and a few other posters had some choice comments for them.   :)


My issue wasn't that it was PR talk, but that it was flat out lies. Had they said "we believe this, as an action RPG, will be a smash amongst Western players", THAT would have been quality PR, which is also keeping it real.
