  1. Today
  2. This is my primary reason for holding out on the sequel... Judging by the demo, DQB2 is gonna be just as demanding and stingy about what you're doing all the time - but it's really hard to tell, as it ends before you actually get to build anything. Chapter 4 in DQB1 was still a big improvement over the earlier ones I think, and I would have loved the majority of the game being like that.
  3. I'm trying to sink my teef into DWR3, but I can't get into the menu! :W
  4. Had two days of 11 and a half hour shifts at work. We had to completely rearrange the entire store layout, and since I’m the stock supervisor I had to take items to and fro depending, so I was pretty much on my toes the whole time. Luckily today I was able to hang out in the stockroom more thanks to the large amount of shipment we got in, and I managed to get a lot done back there too! I’m pretty happy with that, we got free lunches since the District Manager bought for us yesterday and today, and all the extra hours of pay the last two days is pretty sweet too. I’m allowed to listen to my iPod while in the back (I always keep one earbud out so I can hear my radio/anyone who needs me when they come to the back) so today I alternated listening to The Runaway Guys play Mario Party 4 and my Suikoden soundtracks. I don’t watch/listen to Let’s Plays much, but I’ve always liked ProtonJon and NintendoCapriSun so I enjoy listening to TRG now and then. It was also really nice to listen to my Suikoden music again; haven’t listened to those albums in awhile and man, totally forgot how great the music is from Suiko 1 and 2. Miki Higashino, you are a wonderful composer. I’m glad I have Wednesdays as my guaranteed day off. I’m planning to try and finish Mario Odyssey and see if I can finish off Cuphead as well.
  5. The GBC originals have aged better than the first two DS Jokers IMO. Bit graphics still look pretty good if compressed due to GBC limitations, the translation is super simplistic and compressed but I still prefer it over the modern localization style, and the monster selection for 2 in particular is great. Breeding in Monsters 1 is fine, but once you get the ultimate monsters and get them to level 99, and assuming you have beaten all gates, there is not much left except to complete the library. Monsters 2 has a seed system with its keys which allows unlimited possiblities added with more monsters, more challenges, dungeons, bosses, and alternating arena battles. It also has slightly improved graphics compared to monsters with more colors and it also has cool combo abilities. I highly reccomend you play Monsters 1/2 first. Joker 1 I have not played enough to be sure, but I remember the graphics were grating for me and it was mindnumbingly slow and hardly accessible. Joker 2 vanilla is plain depressing for me, because it has so many cool ideas and a pretty good plot and awesome monsters but it is so lacking in post-game content that the quest to synthing the likes of Aquarion/Libranex/Leonyx/Zenith Dragon just leads to nothing and I just feel more sad than accomplished having played for like 300 hours on it because 250 of these hours have been lather-rinse-repeating scouting --> synthesis --> world of light --> synthesis --> world of light four hours on end.
  6. So I am in the process of completing Dragon Quest Builders 1 (In Chapter 4, last thing I have left is to build a library if I can and a torture room then Dragon Lord time) and I am interested in Builders 2. For one thing, Dragon Quest II was my first DQ game and so one of my most nostalgic, and I would assume the game is much more expansive and has more chapters given it's in Torland and all. Am I right in that assumption. Should I get it if I want a more expansive, freer, and less stressful (I felt like Builders 1 pestered me with quests) than the first one? Is it so? Thanks in advance.
  7. So Nintendo uploaded the "Nintendo Switch - Fan-Favories & Newest Releases - Summer" trailer on YouTube today. Starting from 0:14 in the video, Nintendo showcased the Hero footage from E3 2019, mentioning that "the Hero joins the battle". And GoNintendo speculated that this trailer indicates that the Hero is set to be released later this month. Do you think there's a good chance the Hero will be available for download later this month?
  8. Yesterday
  9. I can't bite you. We don't have health insurance for you.
  10. Welcome old man, you'll fit right in with most of us middle-aged (but kids think we're old) dudes. Welcome to our own little slice of the Internet!
  11. Echoing this almost perfectly. DWM 1 was good and DWM2 was what I played till death. I got every single monster as I had 2 systems and 2 games and would battle/trade/breed across versions. It's handily my favorite DQ side game ever. That said, the Joker games are good. I think they mix a little more DQ mainline into the concept, not necessarily in a bad way. I've played and enjoyed them all. Even did Joker 1 completely in Japanese I was so excited to play when it came out! Last year I played and beat Joker 3. It was quite good. Wish I'd taken a break after Terry's Wonderland because I didn't play it as much due to burnout after back to back long games on the PC (had I played on a 3DS I'd have gone farther). And now for the Ultimate... the remakes for 3DS. DQM1 - Terry's Wonderland has a wonderful fan translation and I happily played over 50 hours with it last spring and went all the way through the post-game and beat that too. Still hoping and praying things work out for DQM2. They finished translating it all and then last September hit a snag and real life and... [emoji24] Here's the highlights of the differences to me: 1. DWM you can make any monster awesome with pretty much any mix of skills. Jokers there are definitely tiers and skills have to grow & be enhanced and come in groups, you can't mix and match just anything. 2. DWM1 has mainly the 1 hub and randomly generated portals and then you go back over and over. DWM2 has more set areas but a key system for making infinitely combined random continents (literally my favorite thing in DQM any!) Jokers are more like the regular games, designed over worlds and dungeons. He didn't indicate difficulty, you might have seen "different" and read it incorrectly. None of the games are too hard. Use guides for breeding and you can beat them with pretty much any attacker/buffer/healer group.
  12. I don't think this was worth making a new thread, but another interesting discovery. Until now I had really overlooked this in the mobile script, it's a messy rip and easy to miss, but the dialog related to the Reborth Stone (formerly the Dragon Potion) is stored just before the Opening Prologue. There's two lines for a lot of the save prompts which kinda makes me think it's randomly either DQ1 Hero or Gwaelin. But one message if you refuse to save makes it pretty clear the voice you hear Gwaelin "Th-!? B-!? Hmph! Dost thou truly mean to take thy leave without first recording thy progress...?" That's the same confounded stutter she does in DQ1. I won't have room to add it in my script port though, unfortunately.
  13. What do you consider difficult about them? From the little snippet I read on here it seems the game is more about focused dungeons so I don't really have an overworld to get lost in without a guide. Sounds like GreatTree is your hub world and you go to different areas via portals...is there backtracking to prior areas or once you've done what you came for, you're done?
  14. Hey all, this is a fairly straight forward thread. Here I provide you with any and all pre-made guides, helpful hints and wiki's being worked on outside of what will eventually be collected and housed on this site for Builders 2. Have fun!

Keep scrolling past and it goes to other games. So there's no point in linking individual pages as it just continuously loads all of their pages in one stroke. Since there are a range of articles it counts as a mini Compendium.

  15. They are actually extremely different. I have a strong preference for DWM1 and 2. The Joker games have improved through the series, but I don't feel like they land anywhere close to the DWM games. Naturally, your experiences may differ. I don't think it really matters what order you play them in.

  17. Welcome to the Den, hope you enjoy it here with us
  18. I've only played a few seconds of the DW Monster games to make sure the games work and I have new copies of the Joker games that I haven't played. I like the concepts of the Monster games since I played Pokémon growing up and I'd like to play them after finishing off the main series of games. Obviously the Joker games are the newer games but are there any huge differences between the games besides graphics? Would it be hard to go back to the GBC games after playing the DS titles?

  20. Every once in a while you just find people of such ludicrous talent that their feats just make the mind boggle. In related news, here's Gene Kelly tap-dancing on roller skates.
  21. After a somewhat slow-paced beginning, this game has become ridiculously addictive! I'm already really impressed by all the little upgrades from the original, and look forward to seeing what further unlocks await down the line. I'm currently in the first main island after the intro, and am seeking out the final couple of crops. It's been a blast so far. Any suggestions for dealing with monster attacks on my town though? I built fairly tall so the Skeletons keep crashing through my farmers' sleeping quarters. I tried erecting a chalk wall in front of the whole side of the town and that seems to have done the trick, but is there a better way of keeping them from destroying my buildings?
