      Finally returned to Arcania to get my guild out of the Fetid Necropolis.  They've got to be bored, maybe a little batty, after several months chilling with Jenetta...

      It’s great to hear Dark Souls Remastered is coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 19th. After the long silence on this version, I was beginning to wonder about the supposed summer release. Thankfully it’ll hit this fall, along with the Solaire amiibo!

      Had to put down my wife's pet ferret yesterday afternoon. Needless to say I was not all to well at work tonight (it's just barely the day after). Is it normal for people to get more sensitive with age, because I've never cried in public except at funerals.

      Discotek are my heroes. They’re bringing back Cyborg 009 The Cyborg Soldier, a childhood show, and they just announced Kimagure Orange Road and Galaxy Express 999. They also brought back Requiem From the Darkness a few years ago. They might be my favorite licensors.

    • DQ1:  I watched the old Nintendo ad for the original game, shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qL5_3EhqK8 After that, and a few articles from Nintendo Power, I rented the game at my local small-time video store.  Later that year was the Nintendo Power promotion where I got the game as a gift from my parents. DQ2 and DQ3:  I rented this from another video store AFTER I found Dragon Warrior 3.  The video stores I got each from  were different, and one didn't have part 2.  So I ended up playing DQ3 before DQ2. DQ4:  This came out around my 13th birthday, so I got it as a gift at that time. DQ 5 and 6: Didn't get to play these until well into adulthood, on the DS remakes. DQ7: Christmas present in 2001, didn't even know it existed til November that year. DQ8 bought it from a Circuit City near release day and was one of few who didn't buy it only for the FF12 demo.  DQ9:  Bought this in Meriden Gamestop, at the mall, and loved it from day one. Still haven't beaten the Zoma Grotto boss. DQ10: @Plattym3, can I borrow your "it's not coming"stamp? DQ11: Waffling between getting it on launch and waiting for the Switch version.  I'd dearly love to play it anywhere I want.
    • You would think so, wouldn't you? But I'm not all that surprised. Even at the start of the DQ Renaissance, I only ever came across ads in dedicated nerd-zones, like Shonen Jump. I know IX had TV ads, which I never saw. SQEX seems to have a historic problem with advertising in the States (not counting what Liamland's told us about advertising for XI). Don't take our word for it. It's so big they had a live showing of the final fight of Dragon Ball Super in Mexico City.  
    • After reading yours I realize it was DWIII that I remember buying the most as a youngster.  My mom let me stay home from school one day randomly (I'm sure there was a good reason back then) and dragged me to the mall for some chore and last-minute I remembered to check Babbages.  Yep, it was there.  Then we had to go out to lunch and do other boring stuff to waste time until it was time to pick my sister up from school.  I read that manual so many times over the ensuing hours until I got home trying to figure out what was up with jobs & such!! I always hear this and always think of myself when I do: I don't really know what Dragon Ball is other than a vague "it's a TV show/comic/card game". I don't watch anime or cartoons really ever in the past 30ish years and never got into card games or the like. So, for fans like me (or non-fans) I just have to take your word for it that it's a big deal.
    • I - Christmas 1989 along with DuckTales and Tetris. It was a very cold and rainy Christmas, which made exploring Alefgard easy. II - Christmas 1990. Actually had rented it a month earlier and beat it. Still asked for it, though. My dad let me open a gift early before going out of town. There was a lot of nothing to do during that week, so exploring the world helped get through what would've been days that lasted forever. III - Spring Break 1992. III was supposed to come out around August of 1991, but it kept getting delayed. The reason Enix kept giving was to "improve the graphics," but it looks the same. My mother was in the hospital downtown. Happened to drop by the mall on the way there and snagged the display copy. I could only play it at night. During that entire week we all had to go sit at the hospital room and do absolutely nothing. I brought the manual every day. IV - Christmas 1992. Freshman in high school. Played it a whole bunch. Weather was particularly clear and sunny, but cold. I'd go outside thinking it was nice, but then, "Nope, back to DW IV!" V - Saw plenty of tiny articles with that one screen shot, but... VI - April/May 1996. I was a senior in high school. There was quite a bit of coverage here in the US about VI. I think a lot of it had to do with Chrono Trigger's success. It reignited my interest in the series and Toriyama's work without ever getting to play it. VII - November 2001. Enix was back and all was good. Bought a PS2 just to play it since my PS1 went kaput. VIII - Thanksgiving 2005. A pretty good year. It's never been my favorite holiday, but that was a good year. Also the John Mayer Trio album was released that same week! IX - In the hospital! That's when my gallbladder decided to fail. I had my review copy accompanying me to all my doctor's visits. (Also with me when I got a bad doctor who made no attempt to diagnose me, I wanted a second opinion, my mom (who wasn't there) said I needed to listen to him "because he's a doctor," and I threw a Cheerios box at her. Checked into the hospital on the release date, 7-11. It was a really crazy, scary week and IX was a great comfort. It will always have a special place in my heart.
    • Most releases I would have been in school or college. With XI, I’m in adult working land. I do remember going up to GameStop after school when DQVI DS came out so I pick up my copy, the Slime plush that came with it as a pre-order bonus, and the strategy guide.
