#408709 Do you Want a DQVIII HD Remaster for PS3?

Posted by King Zenith on 15 December 2014 - 11:45 AM

That's definitely an impediment to my son playing as well.  He was blazing through the game and not really minding the pace of battles until he reached Dhoulmagus.  Then he stalled on Dhoulmagus for quite a while without having a lot of motivation to grind.  He finally beat him (both forms) a month or so ago and has resumed but it's still slow-going.  He cleared Rydon's Tower and is now ready to face Evil Jessica but got derailed again with the release of DQ3. 

 

I am hoping that once he has a full party again, the pace of the game and the level of difficulty won't be too bad, but it's definitely a hard game to grind in for the reasons you mentioned.  I like the stream-lined view of battles in DQ7 3DS.  Seems like a perfect compromise between the first-person view of most games in the series and the third-person view of DQ8, DQ9 and the Jokers.

#408085 Dragon Quest III progress

Posted by King Zenith on 09 December 2014 - 08:21 AM

Liquid Metal Slimes appear on the overworld in any cell labeled as "24" in this map.  The encounter rate is 2.62%.  There are other / better places to find them.  Here is the list (from Sk8erpunq's GBC FAQ, presumably still roughly applicable here):

Baramos Castle: (2.69%)
Overworld Cell 24: (2.62%)
Zoma's Castle 1F-1B: (6.79%)
Rubiss Tower 5F: Platoon (7.46%)
Rubiss Tower 5F: Horde (4.98%)
Rubiss Tower 1-2F: Platoon (7.65%)
Alefgard Overworld 39: Samurai (2.31%)
Alefgard Overworld 3C: Platoon (2.87%)
Alefgard Overworld 3C: Horde (8.62%)
Alefgard Overworld 3F: Squad (7.73%)
Gondo Cave 1-2F: Samurai (2.31%)
Gondo Cave 3-4F: Samurai (5.91%)
Zenith Dungeon 3B, 5B: Platoon (2.62%)
Zenith Dungeon 3B, 5B: Horde (7.85%)
Divinegon Tower inside areas (excluding top floor): Lieutenant (5.24%)

...and if anyone is wondering what Platoon, Horde, Samurai etc.. refers to:
Platoon: Up to four different platoon groups, including this platoon 
  (note: sometimes there is more than one platoon of the same monster like 
  Slime and Raven in Overworld 05, I've decided to add up the percentage and 
  list them as one encounter).
  
  Lieutenant: One lieutenant monster and one platoon monster group (chosen with
  relative probabilities as platoon).
  
  Horde (Nocturnal Horde): There will be only one monster group in large 
  quantity (dependant of monster).
  
  Samurai: There will be only one samurai monster.
  
  Squad (Nocturnal Squad): A preset monster formation (up to three monster 
  groups). Quantities in groups may vary.

#407599 What's New with you?

Posted by King Zenith on 05 December 2014 - 11:05 AM

One nice upgrade that no one seems to be talking about so far is the Party AI.  No other version of DQ3 has had this, and it has been begging for this feature since DQ4 on the NES.  Normal battles have always been so cumbersome when you have to define everyone's moves in every turn of every battle.  It wouldn't be so bad if you had a full line of Fighters or something, but for a more typical party:

 

Round 1:

Hero --> Attack --> Monster A

Fighter --> Attack --> Monster B

Priest --> Spells --> Heal --> Hero

Mage --> Spells --> Page 2 --> Page 3 --> Frizz --> Monster C

 

Round 2:

Hero --> Attack --> Monster A

Fighter --> Attack --> Monster C

Priest --> Spells --> Heal --> Mage

Mage --> Spells --> Page 2 --> Page 3 --> Crack --> Monster D

 

etc....

 

I would find myself getting lazy and just having my mage and priest attack, even if it does less damage because I can't be bothered to go through all those menu options just for fighting some horny hares horny_hare.png

 

 

Now, it's just:

Round 1:

Hero --> Attack --> Monster A

 

Round 2:

Hero --> Attack --> Monster A

 

 

Ahhh, much better.

#407576 DQ3 mobile out!

Posted by King Zenith on 05 December 2014 - 08:38 AM

According to our new and brilliantly executed Monster Wiki, Robbin' Hood has been the western localized name for Kandar since Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, and has appeared under that localized name in Joker, Joker 2 and Dragon Quest 5 DS.

#407575 DQIII Parties

Posted by King Zenith on 05 December 2014 - 08:32 AM

Aw man, Dwaine told me I had to come see this topic because it was discussing DQIII panties.  I'll have to let him know that's not what this topic is actually about.

 

Now what am I going to do with these?

#406887 Dragon Quest IV dropped to $9.99 today in the iTunes app store

Posted by King Zenith on 26 November 2014 - 08:10 AM

Been replaying DQIV on the 3DS. I can't see myself playing a 3-D game on a small Iphone and portrait only now. Though I heard here or somewhere that the DQ games on mobile haven'f sold alot or should I say what SE expects of rhe series.

 

It's true that there is little need to play the DS titles again if you have them on the DS.  The Mobile port of DQ4 does add Party Chat which is a nice addition that was missing from the DS version.  As for portrait mode, I know it's a contentious issue, but the DS-remakes are perfect for portrait mode since the DS games are already in a form of portrait mode, just with a hinge in between the upper and lower screens.  It's nice to see the games in one continuous image without that little gap of missing stuff where the hinge appears.
