#410475 How to find a cheap complete Dragon Warrior VII (PSX)?

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 08 January 2015 - 11:57 PM

The booklet I believe is also on the Den in a format you can print, then cut.  The problem is, to get it right, you'd need a printer that handles back to back, and you'd have to split the pages apart, and do the hardwork at reworking them to appropriately print in the same way as it would appear had you purchased the game with the original booklet.  So first - last on the back, on the other side, first+1 - last-1.  Next page would be, on the back, first+2 - last -2, and on the other side, first+3 - last-3.  Then continue onward.


It's a pain in the behind, but doable.  Of course, there's the cost of good glossy, high yield, no smudge paper, and smudgeless ink.  Plus a printer that is highly accurate.  :/


You can find the dual-side jewels, though they're far rarer now.  Might have to go on ebay for them :/.


I wish I could help you out further, but I can't.  Maybe just save up little by little, and in the meantime, just get the discs?  I mean shipping just discs would be a lot cheaper, and it's possible to get a copy in working condition for 100 Lira or less.



!!!!!!Wow, if you act now!!!!!!!!!! :




That dude, JuMeSyn, from RPGamer.com, who wrote the scathing, intellectual lightweight review a few days ago, is reselling the game.  Ships worldwide, and he claims FREE shipping.  You may have to get into a bidding war, but at 36 US, that's about 90 Lira.  So if you're willing to go up to 40 total, that's 100 Lira.  Or 50 US, that's about 125 Lira for the whole thing.


This copy is in working order, and has everything!


It's almost like this copy was sitting there waiting for you.  A sort of digital irony.  An online persona who hates the series sells it, and to a fan who is likely to really dig it.


Anyway, I hope you catch this before it goes bye.


Hey, maybe one of us should buy it just to leave him negative feedback on Ebay.

#408655 Anything special for Christmas?

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 14 December 2014 - 12:29 PM

Oh, haha, I wasn't complaining about being single. (Although yesterday was one of those moments where I was at a place and was the literally only one that wasn't on a date. Funny when that happens!) This is just a time of year that's big with kids. I just want to spend time with friends and family. Stuff is nice, but what brings me joy is seing the people around me well and happy.


I hear ya'! I don't care about getting presents (the DQ10 being an exception). I enjoy Christmas itself. Even when I was a kid, I always enjoyed the month of December before the holiday far more than the holiday itself. My best Christmas memories are not even of Christmas day: my fondest ones are Friday nights in December.


I used the recliner in my folks' living room so much that my Mom started calling it my Archie Bunker Chair. Between that chair and the other chair my Dad used was the tree. My Mom used the couch on the other side of the living room. Every Friday we'd watch Family Matters together. And during December when the Christmas episode aired I still remember my Mom having summer sausage slices on crackers, stuffed shells and other goodies.


Saturday morning was breakfast together, and I still remember looking out at the snow covered woodshed and the brook/creek. My parents live in the woods with a 600 foot driveway. Its hard to explain, but something about their location screams Christmas. They have a furnace now, but I still remember helping my Dad load up the wheel burrow with firewood to bring to the basement. He'd shovel a path from the house to the woodshed for easier travel with the wheel burrow.


Wow, is it me or does this time of year make you remember stuff?

#403877 Localisation of DQ games - news

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 23 October 2014 - 05:35 AM




And yes, I'll concede that it'd be thematically appropriate. Its kind of like putting lemon zest in creme friache. I certainly don't dislike it, and it still goes wonderfully with beluga caviar and blinis, but I prefer not having the ever so slight bitterness with citrus undertone. I tend to seek a more "pure" taste of the sour to compliment the salty beluga.

That's so full of references I don't get or have any experience with, it might as well have been written in another language.
I think it needs to be localized.
Redneckpride4ever's post or DQVII?



The food example didn't work, so I'll try a beer example:


Bud Light lime is a thematically appropriate drink that I enjoy drinking on a hot summer day, but I still prefer my PBR. I have to be in a very specific mood to want a citrus flavored beer. I don't dislike citrus flavored beer, and I understand its popularity. I just prefer it less adulterated.


Of course, when it comes to PBR, my attitude is this:

#403472 Looking like mediocre reviews for Fantasy Life

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 20 October 2014 - 10:57 AM

Reviews have  no bearing on if I purchase a game. I do miss rental shops- as a kid I could rent a game and decide if I liked it or not. Sometimes a maligned game could be one I liked. Let me give you an example. 


I first rented WWF Wrestlemania as a kid. Even then I knew it wasn't a wrestling simulator of any quality. I still ask for it at Christmas. Why? Even today, I acknowledge that its a decent 8-bit one-on-one fighter with cool characters, as far as NES goes. The characters had distinct strengths and weaknesses, and they were well drawn. This game is what lead me to my Mortal Kombat phase years later.


Another example is FLying Dragon Secret Scroll. I got it as a birthday gift. Its quirky fighting style is often maligned, but I actually found it to be an interactive style. You need brain power and strategy to reveal the Tusk soldiers' true identities.


When I played the original Zelda as a kid, I indeed enjoyed it, but even at 9-10 years old had mixed feelings about the play mechanics of the overhead view. The world was also desolate.. I much preferred the side view of the black sheep Zelda 2. And the towns were in fact my favorite element of the game.


I beat the ever bashed Final Fantasy 2 when I was 24. Though I agree the combat system is.... wonky, I love the way the story unfolds. My hometown was invaded and I had to start an insurgency. The story wasn't up to modern standards (even in 2003), but the pacing of it was fluid. I actually felt like I was going to free my kingdom. Right at the start when I had to bring the ring from Scott to Hilda, I felt like I was actually working on a mission to accomplish something. It remains my favorite FF,


I know you're still purchasing it, but I'd ignore the reviews. Who knows, maybe eals's description is a positive for you. Mastering every skill and trade may be exactly what some players want. I mean there's people who revocated all 10 times or whatever for every class in DQ9.


I loved the whole customizable system of DQ9, I played through the post game story line, but I sure as hell wasn't about to level Legacy bosses to 99 and all that stuff. But that's me: for you it may be a positive.

#401709 SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS ARE DEAD (and so is my childhood)

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 04 October 2014 - 04:58 PM

Dude, Saturday morning cartoons started to die with Pokemon. :|



I always felt they started dying in 1992 when NBC killed their cartoon lineup. Man, I was sad. Despite having hit puberty and only watching a select few (which I still now can enjoy as an adult), it seemed like a major culture shock.


My shrink was taken aback when I was 15 and told her I tend to reminice (whatever the spelling). Even though I spent ages 11-20 in the 90s, it was a decade I really couldn't relate to, especially the rock music.

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 12 September 2014 - 01:55 PM

I shook my head in disbelief when I saw this. Everyone around here needs a laugh right about now. All I can say is I think this guy has WAY too much free time.





I think my favorite one is "Daddy's New Wife is a..."

#398641 Re-igniting momentum.

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 10 September 2014 - 12:25 AM

OK folks, I'll make a private group. The purpose of this group is not general- the purpose is for our circle to easily communicate. Example:


Woodus makes a post saying he needs artwork. 3 people offer up art. They can post it, etc. Then everyone disscusses it and decides what goes public.


I literally want it to be like a conference room for management. I don't want it to be a general area. I want it to be a place to coordinate things.


A general DQ group along the lines of Roto's Questers could also be done.

#398359 DQX cancelled for the West? Say it ain't so.

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 08 September 2014 - 04:53 AM


I'm probably sure that's why they have a lot of different DQ styles for different preference of the players. I would imagine you would like the DQ Monster series as well.

Ye, I might try someday. I never played any DQ Monsters series.

But for example about Customizable or not.

FF3 on DS was a game I loved and think it is much better than FF 4 in almost every single way.
I prefer a story like FF3 than FF4, it was a little too much linear, but pretty epic, in FF4 you go from one place to another lose characters in your party all the time and are forced to play with some boring characters, have some parts of the story that try to be sooo epic that become just bs, in my opinion.

Also I think regular turn-based is a much better battle system than ATB.



 ATB does nothing but make battles not only overdrawn, but stilted as hell. Turn based is superior in every way.

#398215 A Contest Idea For DQ7 and DQ10...and maybe more!

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 07 September 2014 - 02:22 AM

I remember a year and a half ago I had some postcards made (with a typo sadly). I could revisit that concept, done better and cheaper. Lemme 'splain... and read everything before you say "WTF type of tangent is this guy going on?".


The postcards and the old Eden take action button that lead to an email for were direct ripoffs from Gun Owners of America, a gun lobby I am a member of. (Not trying to get political here, just stating facts). That site is responsible for thousands upon thousands of people pestering politicians. Same with the postcards they send for you to mail out. They are called "the pitbull of the Second Amendment". They get people riled so much that even the NRA sometimes retracts a position of compromise on legislation. And with only 300,000 members vs. the NRA's 5 or so million.Again, I'm making a point here. That small group made a huge one wobble. Why? Because their members jump and jump on stuff, never giving up. Hmm... gun politics aside, that model seems similar to what OpHero has been doing.


One issue we had (besides RiCK leaving a ROM link) was we never got the traffic we did from OpHero. I think the concepts themselves could be used, minus a website. We have enough traffic now. We've used twitter properly, and OpHero has riled up the folks. Atop this, my We Demand USA FB page has gotten more traffic and helped get the word out. I also revamped and renamed my old FB page for Eden into "We demand more Dragon Quest Outside of Japan". Me and the owner of Hero work together and share info to get the word out. Roto runs his Dragon Questers group. I actually convinced a guy in France to make a "We demand in France" page, in French.


Now ignasia was saying we could have pinned threads for easy access to SE contact info. I offered to pin links to my pages. I may be able to get OpHero to do the same. I am blessed to actually have ANdrew as a FB friend, contact is simple. With pinned links to ignasia's contact info, people can clike a makeshift take action button and have the tools they need, including cut and paste messages. 


Now the postcards didn't garner much interest. However, I don't find it impossible for us to revisit the concept as PART of a mail bomb. Back in 2012 I suspected a drought coming, which is why I started the FB page. And my hunch, sadly, proved correct. Well, now we have the momentum. I think we can actually get folks to sign a simple postcard. If we got say 100 signed, that's 100 pieces of mail clogging us the SE offices. 


We need to not let the train slow down here. Can we do this? I think quite so!

#398144 Man with down syndrome not handicapped. READ!

Posted by redneckpride4ever on 06 September 2014 - 04:25 PM

I just read this article. This man may have down syndrome, but he can back himself up with MMA skills.




No matter your feelings on whether or not he should be bout sanctioned, there's no denying this is an amazing story. As Mr. T would say "I pity the fool who tries bullying this man!".
