Erdrick The Hero

Hmm... Y'know, it doesn't seem like much, but using your real name for the hero in a DQ game really helps get you into character. It's been a while since I played a DQ game with my real name (I use Erdrick in case I post screencaps 'n' stuff) and although they are still fun, I don't get sucked into the stories as easily.

    Even imagining playing DQV as Erdrick seems more like, "oh it's just a game" than being part of the story.

    IIRC, Horii Yuji, the series creator, intended just that effect: by naming the character after yourself, you feel a sense of investment and connection. Worked wonders for me as a kid, and all my DQ heroes are always 'Lisa,' despite the drag show that inevitably turns into in many of them. ;)

Blimey...I've made it to the big bad on the 25th floor of EO1 (original), but a few miss steps on my part just opens the door to death and destruction for my party. I SHALL HAVE VICTORY!

36 of 77 tracks converted. Also, I -think- I found a way to patch the extra line of japanese text into english, and restore the US version of the OST into DQ8 for iOS.

Just saw a Japanese copy of the DQV remake at Half Price Books. Ultimately, I decided not to buy it, since I plan to buy some anime stuff at Metacon, and thus, I'm saving my money.

    I don't understand import copies, unless they have an Engrish/English text on it.

    I already have them. They're the same as the DQ4DS sprites/DQ4PSX sprites, and I have the DS rip.

New videos for Dragon Quest - Timeless Lands will now be posted on archive.org instead of youtube, as archive.org doesn't reduce the video quality of files. Plus, 60 fps, so you'll see EXACTLY how smooth the game should play. Recommending Google Chrome along with VLC's video web plugin.

What the hell SE mobile? It says fishnet stockings will boost Maya's defense from 59 > 67. But if I try to equip her with the Robe of Serenity again afterwards, it says 34 > 67. I'm going to assume it's the stockings that are bugged, because I don't think they provide that much defenense, really. (Also, another DQ4 typo: "Defence" instead of Defense.)

    A lot of games use Defence instead of Defense. It's not a typo.

    To be specific, Defense is the US spelling of the word, whereas Defence is the preferred British spelling of the word. With the more British translations, this isn't a surprising change.
