#474459 How did you find the Den?

Posted by Meinolf on 29 September 2016 - 11:17 PM

Pretty sure I found this place at the ripe old age of like 13 or something when DQ9 was still relatively newish and I was searching up info on the absurdly large and randomized grotto system

#434251 LGBT in Dragon Quest?

Posted by Meinolf on 30 August 2015 - 08:49 AM

My two cents on the topic has always been that drawing attention to things such as sexuality and making it a point of interest for a character makes it seem like sexuality has to define a person. If the goal is inclusion then it doesn't need to be made a big deal out of, who's to say any random NPC you talk to in any DQ game couldn't be gay since it's never brought into question?

#375581 Does Square Enix Deserve Us As Fans

Posted by Meinolf on 20 January 2014 - 11:01 PM

VIII? Trashed by the localization company.

Dialogue-wise, our version was actually very similar to what Japan got I believe, minus the spell name changes, which I will never get why people $#!&@ed about so much. Also we got voice acting and orchestrated music. Those are two REALLY nice touches and big pluses.

#375505 Does Square Enix Deserve Us As Fans

Posted by Meinolf on 20 January 2014 - 06:52 PM

I don't think people here understand the costs of localizing games (especially ones as text-heavy as VII) and the business risks of doing such a thing. They're a business, they aren't your mommy guys.

 

I don't think you understand the problem most of us have. It isn't as much as we want games, hell, I'd be okay knowing we aren't getting a game. The problem is we want to know something. And we aren't being told anything.

 

 

 

 

I wouldn't say "treated like Final Fantasy fans" the way you're saying it. It's just that they're more likely to get games localized. I'm aware of the poor quality that recent FF games have and for fans it's not so much about wanting games as it is wanting quality games. We know DQ games are quality and that's why we want as many as FF fans are getting. It's about wanting out fandom to be acknowledged the way SE acknowledges FF fans.

By treated like "Final Fantasy fans" I am saying people here expect a ton of marketing, much earlier release dates, ALL of the games to be localized (including spin-offs), Collector's Editions, etc.

I don't agree with him either but I think that's enough of that.

#375378 Does Square Enix Deserve Us As Fans

How can you defend Square Enix as it stands currently?

We haven't had -one damn word- about DQ, the series we're all here for, since Joker 2. :|

 

 

DQX? Silence. DQX Wii U? Silence. DQX PC? Silence. DQ7? Silence. Terry? Silence. Slime 3? Silence. DQM2? Silence.

 

 

It's pretty obvious we're just a bunch of Kingdom Hearts and crappy FF sequel lovers, to them. :|

Like I said "acting like spoiled entitled children".

 

No, it's bad business practice.

Posted by Meinolf on 19 January 2014 - 03:53 PM

Honestly, the topic should be "Do the fans deserve Square-Enix?"

It doesn't really work in the inverse. I see your point about the whining, but SE is a pretty shitty company in terms of business practices, no question.

#375318 Does Square Enix Deserve Us As Fans

Posted by Meinolf on 19 January 2014 - 12:24 AM

At this point it doesn't feel as much like the question is does Square Enix deserve us as fans, as it is does Square Enix even WANT fans? They haven't made a good business move in the longest time and their fanbase understanding is... entirely nonexistant.

#371870 Commercials You Hate

Posted by Meinolf on 20 November 2013 - 10:25 AM

Any and every adult swim show advertisement. The bumps aren't funny, the live shows aren't funny,whoever directed that Heart She Holler commercial with the blood spewing everywhere should be strangled. Adult swim, stop.

#371159 Major Battles in Games that Made You Rage?

Posted by Meinolf on 03 November 2013 - 01:23 PM

I'm not much a game rager but Four Kings in Dark Souls damn near got me there.

 

Not even a challenge, that's just a poorly designed boss. It's based around the idea that you can't not take damage and really just need to try and kill them faster than they kill you. You have to outdamage each one of them because when another king appears isn't based on health, it's based on time. And as the fight goes on even though it's called the FOUR kings, more than four can spawn. It is just not a fun time.
