That'd be a cool idea. The DW patch uses the classic Dragon Warrior style names like Blaze instead of Frizz, Return instead of Zoom, Metal Babble instead of Liquid Metal Slime etc... The DQ patch uses names for items and spells that are more consistent with the DS translation, but also has some names that are more true to the original Japanese release, like the location names, character names etc. Papas instead of Pankraz, Santa Rosa instead of Whealbrook etc...
I hereby dub thee Furtamor, since I can no longer distinguish between the posts you make and the ones that Mortamor once made. You've been here for little over a month but have made 348 posts (at the time of writing this), and an overwhelming majority of those have been spent arguing with people. I will say that you have managed to bite your tongue and not directly insult people, so you have that going for you. Still, it's growing very tiresome to hear your complaints and negative comments throughout the forums. Tread lightly, Fur.
Why they're a baddie: Seems to be one of the most bold bosses since he doesn't just sit back in a lair and wait for heroes to come off him. He gets up in everyone's face and will run you through with his sceptre if you get in his way. Most people find they cruise through the game until they make it to him, then it's time to grind because this baddie is tough.
I have a very personal account that is from the heart on what DQ means to me, but I've avoided posting it, as again, it is very personal and the subject matter may get a bit controversial for some. I certainly don't want to hurt the cause and I don't want to (possibly) paint the fan base in the wrong color. Likewise, I don't want my fellow Den members to view me any differently. I'm an open book and certainly don't mind sharing under the right circumstances, but for the aforementioned reasons, have been hesitant to do so.
I don't want to push you into sharing something that you would rather not, but I must admit my curiosity has been piqued. It might be wise to go with your instincts on this, but I for one would make every attempt to hear your story with an open mind and not pass judgement. Whatever you decide, I'm interested to hear that DQ has had an apparently profound impact on you. I hope it has been a positive impact, as I know it has been on many others from the fanbase (including myself).
I've always been pretty lax on this sort of thing in cases where your money can't possibly go to the pockets of the people who made the game. There have been plenty of ROMs distributed around this site before and I am sure it will continue. Not in this post though. Nope, not right here for example.
To my knowledge none of the DQ games will play (properly or at all) on BlueStacks so PC emulation is out. It also requires a very beefy computer to even emulate a shoddy smartphone.
To my knowledge, all of the DQ games will play (and properly at that) on BlueStacks. I have all of the DQ games currently available installed on BlueStacks (properly purchased from Google Play of course) and they work great. That being said, BlueStacks recently adopted an annoying subscription fee structure with the alternative free version requiring you to install the "featured app of the day" in order to continue use. As such, they have been added to my "list" and I shall discontinue use. Really, I only used BlueStacks to test out game play a bit. I do most of my mobile gaming on my mobile device. Go figure...
Just found out via Aeana that Square Enix has just trademarked "Holey Heroes" in Europe. Here is a link to corroborate.
This is the most Dragon Quest sounding trademark I have seen in a while and it makes a lot of sense with respect to the plot of Dragon Quest 7. Warriors of Eden restoring the holes in the world map now becomes the pun-tacular Holey Heroes.
