Lol Funny thing Happened On DQVDS With 512x Exp Multiplier Cheat

Recommended Posts

The joy of JRPGs is a story, anime stuff, and other stuff.

 

 

Grinding is a $#!&@, and I applaud (within reason) any cheat that makes it easier.

Here's how I see it...

 

People enjoy games for different reasons.

 

If someone is using a cheat to make the game more enjoyable to them or possibly turning a game they would otherwise not care for into one that creates an enjoyable experience for them who's to say that they're wrong? Certainly in an online game this line of logic wouldn't apply due to the inherent competitive nature of online gaming and the imbalance created by cheating having a negative impact on the other players that aren't cheating... but, really, what's the harm in doing it in a single-player game? It certainly isn't the way that I would do it, but I fail to see how it's wrong for someone else to do it if that's the way they like their games.

Because he can pretty much just watch a video walkthrough and get about as much out of watching it as he will by playing it at this point, all challenge is stripped out of it. If you're not attentive enough to battle monsters for an hour or two at times then why play an RPG? That's kind of the point of the game, fight stuff. It just perplexes me.

Well. He clearly doesn't play for the same reason you or I do. Maybe gets his jollies off by mercilessly slaughtering monsters? Clearly he gets some enjoyment out of battles or else he would just use a code to turn them off. Maybe he enjoys talking to every single person and reading the party chat. Perhaps he just likes to explore. There's more to Dragon Quest games than just "fighting stuff". A game can be played many ways and the way one decides to play it is one's own choice. I don't think it's fair to deride someone just because they're entertained in a way that you don't understand or agree with.

I wholeheartedly agree that just because something is meant to be used a certain way, it isn't the only approach to benefit from it. Everyone has a different point of view, depending on their upbringing and experiences, and those life events help shape who a person becomes and how they think. It is perfectly fine to have your own ideology and share it, so long as it does not become a habit of wanting to establish ones ideas to be universally accepted. So in this case, playing a game the "right" way is okay. But playing the game the "wrong" way should be perfectly acceptable as well, so long as both parties are getting enjoyment out of it, and neither interferes with each others indulgence, like multiplayer gaming, unless all participants acquiesce. This is the act of ideal compromise, which we do all the time to respect the law, which in retrospect is needed because of the untrained idealism that roams freely without conduct, also known as "ignorance". That said, you don't have to take my word for it. It is simply what I have thought to be the best approach to better understand the nature of human society and how it works, and you don't even need a major in sociology to figure it out.

 

So enjoy your games! There are far more important things to chew over. I for one cannot find Waldo...

You try grinding Metal Slimes. :P They always run for me. Always.

 

I always just gave up. Even on Slime Hill in DQ9, it was a pain in the ass.

 

*really wished he could have had save states when he played DQ9*

requires patience but it's still faster than most other ways. Right now I'm grinding MKS outside the Prison of Sorrow in DQVI and I'm having pretty good luck. Of course the games that have the Sands of Time do help grinding be less of a chore.

The only thing that annoys me on Slime Hill are the abundance of trees and bushes, those metals seem to land in them quite a bit. I guess I'm more tenacious though, as I've grinded and farmed for a long while on some sessions.

 

:P:)

 

Although, if you like cheat codes... That's fine with me, I used to occasionally use a Game Genie on my NES games.

must agreed on that. the best place to massacre MKS so far.. i had like 5-6 encounter of it out of 10 battles Rofl. spamming hatchet mans on 4 units is also the best way to put out of the boring of grinding.

I fail to see how it's funny, but I don't care too much if you hack to level up. I find it to be a cheap way to level up, but as long as you aren't playing online, I don't care. I can't say I haven't cheated like that, though. But then again, it was because I wanted to see what would happen when you win one of the unwinnable battles. Sadly, the game either freezes, or just goes on with what would happen normally, depending on the game.

 

I personally find grinding fun. I would rather not be strong enough to beat the final boss of the game right off the bat. (Like in Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story...)

I can understand how this is funny. It might have taken hours to get to level 40 or whatever, then just in like 3 seconds boom level 99. It would make me laugh in the way "Take that game!"

Some games in the 90s with the Game Genie really did that, 'cause the cheat corrupted the cartridge itself.

 

Happened to me once, can't remember the game tho.

A little after Pokemon Silver came out, I bought a Gameshark for Gameboy Color. I remember it corrupting my Silver a few times. I even remember when I offered to cheat some Pokemon in for someone, and it ended up corrupting their save. My excuse was that it was necessary for the cheating process, and that his save status will be back to normal after a while with some new high level Pokemon and infinite items. :evillaugh:

 

The game didn't say it was corrupted, but upon loading, all that showed was the option to start a new save. Sometimes, disabling the cheat quickly will restore the saved data. But more often than not, the corruption was permanent.

I've used a handful of cheats in DQIV/V/VI, mainly to reduce the time spent mindlessly grinding for EXP and tokens...

 

AND NOT A SINGLE $#!& WAS GIVEN THAT DAY.

I'm not absolutely sure what you are trying to convey. I for one took it quite badly.

 

Many people look down on cheaters, for cheating is sometimes against their religion or w/e. Ethics differ from person to person. There has been reports of Action Replays and other cheating devices corrupting DS's and other consoles. That means that cheating not only corrupts your game, but also the console you were using as the medium for the game to begin with.

Comparing video game cheating devices to religion and ethics? Lolwut.

I'm not sure what you're getting at. My point is that grinding eventually becomes so monotonous and easy that little enjoyment is lost by cheating.

I say cheating in a game is fine, as long as you've beat it once honestly. You find all sorts of wired stuff by modifying a game's code.

I remember with Pkmn Diamond, after playing through it properly, I cheated myself a Lv100 Mewtwo with boosted stats (255 all EVs - not possible without cheats and 31 all IVs - VERY rare without cheats) a similar Groudon, Rayquaza, Palkia, Kyogre and Mew and infinite items right from the off just for a laugh. I beat the game in just an afternoon. It really was alot of fun.

 

BUT I wouldn't use cheats for online or for an MMO. Trolling friends? Yes. I remember making an invincible pokemon (Spiritomb with Wonder Guard) which had no attacks that could kill (Thunder Wave, False Swipe, Sunny Day, Refresh(?) I forget what the status healing move is called). Heh heh...

I don't frankly care what anyway says but I also look down on cheating, because generally reguardless of what others like to say it translates to the real world a fair amount of the time from my personal experience. Also, as someone mentioned that grinding is a part of RPGs, always has been, it's a key part to it, people simply hide the fact of grinding by saying it's just leveling because of small sessions, but when in reality it's grinding none the less. Getting that certain level for a skill or stat points to distribute is grinding, trying to get enough gold for an item/s in a game that isn't about "grinding" is grinding.
