    I found this tape on a retro shop called Beep in Akihabara. It was in the junk bin surprisingly and I picked it up for my Dragon Quest collection as soon as I saw it. Now it became a rarity part for my DQ collection. I also have an old VHS player but I have to get it fixed first to watch it. I think it contains a walkthru type gameplay video but I'm not sure. I just wanted to share it with you guys.

    So Sakurai was talking about the Hero (and Banjo Kazooie) in the latest issue of Famitsu, which you can read about below.

    The back and forth is what gives DW VII it's charm, in my opinion. It's interesting to watch the different islands develop.

    The upcoming Dragon Quest Your Story movie could be the reason. Since it’s based around DQ5, people will either check out the mobile version or replay the mobile version, so adding in an accessory like this could be tied in with the film. Or maybe Yuji Horii was like, “You know what sucks? Trying to recruit metal monsters on DQ5. Let’s add an accessory to help with that problem!” And then he snapped his fingers and magic happened.

    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! Beginner's Guides: https://www.polygon.com/guides/2019/7/12/20690979/dragon-quest-builders-2-beginners-multiplayer-townspeople-changes-improvements-switch https://gameranx.com/features/id/176756/article/dragon-quest-builders-2-10-tips-tricks-to-help-you-become-a-master-builder-beginners-guide/ Large Compendium Guides: https://twinfinite.net/2019/07/dragon-quest-builders-2-guide-wiki-tips-tricks-guides-more/ https://www.gamepur.com/guide/41738-dragon-quest-builders-2-room-recipes-all.html Note that gamepur is up here because it's bloody strange, just pick any article, scroll down, and it connects first to all related articles, in this case anything labeled with the same game name. 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.

    We succeeded hosting the 10th Anniversary events in Akihabara Tokyo. We appreciated that over 60 players came to our event, including DQIX Legend players, Kansai & Tohoku players, and Mr. Fujisawa, the DQIX director😆 Unfortunately I haven’t tagged Mr. Fujisawa but most of my seniors had. BTW, there are no foreigners in the event but myself. So I don’t need to speak English or Chinese to serve anybody. Also congratulates Liam for a successful NYC 9th Anniversary event!

    My favorite Dragon Quest scene is actually the finale of the spinoff Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime, which spectacularly pays off a few points from the earlier story for the final battle. I think my favorite overall stories are VIII and IX, though.

    It's been a long time coming. Like over 8 years, considering I bought it on DS launch day. I got super side tracked by the desire to grind out vocations. That's a problem I also had with DQ7, I just felt so underpowered until I had a chance to grind them out but then I didn't know when to stop, so I mastered then all .. That caused the hiatus. But holy crap that ending and subsequent credits roll had me feeling like crap. Ashlynn became my favorite character so I was really feeling the implied ship there with the MC. This was the first time a DQ game gave me a melancholic ending. I thought it was a great game over all, even if the challenge was all over the place, favoring the difficult side, but that ending tho. Even the post credits scene did little to make me feel better about it. After I got over it (I'm not crying, YOU'RE crying!) I went into the bonus dungeon just to get dominated by Nokturnus. Is he supposed to be the strongest entity in the whole entirety of Dragon Quest? Sure felt like it. Reckon I'll try him again with LMS/Paladin strats soon. Repear's Peak was pretty cool. I knew what was up there so I saved before hand so I could see them all. Despite 4 being my favorite of the Zenithian Trilogy, I thought the 5 version of Repear's Peak was the best (then again, anything with the best waifu of all time, Debora, is the best). I guess after I take care of Nokturnus I can move onto the last 2 games in the main series I haven't beaten, 8 and 11. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    So I did some more of these: Aria / Aishe as a SilkWing Melvin / Sir Mervyn as a SandWing-SeaWing combo, I might edit it later when I have the time though I think I might do the cast of another game in the series next, idk but that's probably what I'll end up doing

    DQVII is my favorite, but I also loved the story and the partychat/characters. It didn't drag as much as most games of that length. DQXI is closest to DQVIII although I think slightly smaller. It's still a good game.

    You need to invest a specific amount of points into each skill before you see any bonuses. For the hero for example, once you get the minimum for the first sword skill level, you’ll get an increase of +5 damage for swords. Keep leveling it and eventually you’ll earn skills like Flame Slash and Metal Slash. You’ll want to focus on a specific weapon for each character. Going swords for the hero and axes for Yangus is a good place to start if you are unfamiliar with the game. You should also invest points into each character specific skill. Yangus’s Humanity skill line for instance will give him support abilities he can use to help the party in battle, while the hero’s Courage skill line gives him some useful spells only the hero has access to. The skill point system isn’t broken; you just need to hit the right amount of points for each skill level. I can respect you want to play blind, but you should consider at least looking up a skill point/skill level guide as a reference for how many points you’ll need for the next skill level up. As for alchemy, you don’t earn them from monsters or buy them; that’s not how the game gives them to you, nor is it said in the game. You earn new recipes by talking to NPCs or reading books from bookshelves. What you earn from battles/buying in shops are specific materials you can use for alchemy, but all recipes are earned outside of battles and buying. You’ll want to try different items for the alchemy pot. If a combination of items doesn’t work, the game immediately spits them back out and tells you to try something else. Once you do find a working combo, the game will start the alchemy process. You can cancel the process at any point before the item is made, so if you don’t want to lose a specific item or change your mind you can cancel the alchemy pot before it finishes (you’ll know when it is finished when you hear a “Ding!” sound.) Dragon Quest VIII isn’t broken by any means. I played the game blind on my first run back in 2011 and I did perfectly fine. Focus on one weapon line and the specific character abilities for your skill points, don’t be afraid to experiment with the alchemy pot, and be sure to read at every bookshelf you find.

    Oof I made more of the Dragon Quest characters as dragons (specifically the dragon tribes in Wings of Fire) Auster / Arus as a NightWing because simply, I liked the design though it could fit Kiefer as a SkyWing-IceWing hybrid because I honestly couldn't choose between the two, and it sort of fits? Idk And Gabo / Ruff as a RainWing-MudWing hybrid because simply, I couldn't fit him into just one category I might draw some more of these for more practice drawing dragons, though I think I'll eventually do some digital art of them as humans

    So I tried something recently uaing Blurb.com. I didn't want to play $100+ for a collectible copy of the DWM2 prima guide so I had a copy printed myself using a pdf file. I guess technically this is piracy but since Prima Games is out of business and they weren't even selling this book in the last decade of their existence anyway, there's no harm done. Honeatly I'm pleased at how it turned out. It isn't perfect by any means of course, but its totally usuable and even looks nice, if you can ignore the page creases from the original PDF scan. The spine image is the weakest part as it was the most difficult to find a high res image of, but I was sorta slapping this thing together kind of sloppily any way so I wasn't too concerned with making a passable bootleg or anything. This is more for practical uses anyway. Sent from my LG-H871 using Tapatalk

    I like Dragon Quest for its stories and gameplay. My favorites are V, VIII, and IX. I love V so much that I actually had a disc made of the PS2 version that was playable on English consoles that had an english patch on it.

    Prima Games isn't out of business. They've now become almost exclusively online, and are kind of like Samurai Gamers/Wikipedia/IGN's Wiki/etc. Only with fully released guides on the spot or a series of pre-set initial helper articles (kind of like what Hardcore Gamers does), that are paid for, but at a much cheaper pricing model per article (just more expensive per word). Though now and again they do print actual physical guides, it's rare (ES6 will probably get one, and it will almost certainly be pre-order or per-order only). However, because the guide is out of print, this is acceptable. Even IF the guide were in print, this would still be acceptable. The problem with laws is that they're never absolutely specific. For instance, going to a library to get a book, to print copies of pages from that book, including all pages of that book, is absolutely allowed. You aren't even required to make those copies in the library. They can be made anywhere, from any copy machine. Same with online books, unfortunately. This is why companies automatically force a paywall structure, and allow only a certain amount of content to show up front (and until recently, allowed printing those free pages). The law cannot protect them directly, so they protect their own bodies of work by forcing those limitations. If the law did, it would negate the purpose of copy-machines (which still exist), and the point of using a library as a tool for teachers. Unless they specified VERY specific instances, however this would complicate things with other forms of learning groups, such as seminars, camps, coaches, home schooling, printing up copies for usage in company meetings, etc. The only two times the law would play a part are: 1) You host the Prima guide, even one out of print, and Prima, or whoever holds the rights, requests you pull it. 2) You print the guide without permission, then attempt to sell it. You can give it away, or use it for your own purposes infinitely, but you cannot make money off of it. Anyone who tries to assert there are more draconian laws in place would be lying or manipulating the rhetoric in the law to fit what they want to see or argue as being true. ---- All that said. Yeah, that looks really nice. Oh, right. If you ever do print these and sell, you should get Prima's permission. If not, you CAN charge for the materials, but keep tabs on that. I don't think you can charge for labor, but that I don't know. Shipping, sure. I'm only saying this because that's a rather solid job.

    The offline mode was indeed removed from all platforms except the Wii. Even if you buy an old Version 1 disk that has the offline mode files, the first thing the game will do is force an update that will patch the game and remove the offline mode. Unfortunately the game checks for an Internet connection and won't run without one, so simply being connected to the Internet won't work either. To restore the offline mode, someone will have to rig something up to either bypass the online check, or trick the game into thinking it's already up to date.

    As to your last point, it would do very well in Japan, and retro is kind of a thing here now. So it's not as far fetched or limiting in resources (plus they can do it with a team the size of Arte Piazza. They already have the build and basic tilesets, and SE uses a massive database for all assets now, so the workload would be much less than you might think. It would also give Japanese players (and everyone really) a new way to replay those old classics, and allow them to upscale from there in terms of content due to far less time and effort spent on visuals. So if they wanted to hire extra people, or bring in other internal teams to just work on new content, that would be much cheaper and easier for them. Hell they could even bridge those games with DQ11 as well, using other cameo's, maybe even work out a prologue to DQ3, like how Aliahan became sealed off, Ortega's initial quest, and cementing the loose tie-in from 11's true ending. Seems like a money printing win-win to me, since they could easily use the smallest/cheapest Switch carts, charge much less, and make far more profit per sale in both total amount and % of sale. Though hey, that's just an idea. The past worlds in the 3DS are as I listed them. Only 1~6 are 2D, 16 or 8 bit. 7~10 are 3D, but for the switch are changed to 2D. Dragon Quest VII: Dragon Quest VIII (I was wrong about 8's graphics...it's a crossbreed of 8 and 11 3DS' 3D system): Dragon Quest IX: Dragon Quest X @Erdrick The Hero yes, I know, but for this it's not streamed, it's fully rendered in-game, so the graphics are a downgraded version of what is streamed on the 3DS system for DQX...which I'm wrong about, it's just 11's 3D system, nothing directly ripped from 10, just remodeled:

    I'm going to make an attempt to actually beat this game because I've only beaten it once and I kind of want to try playing it without giving up halfway? Idek, I'm replaying DQ7 since I finally have my own copy of it but I'm taking a break from it so eh. Only reason being my sister wants to play more DQ games and she's actually trying to play DQ4 by herself (long story short I ended up beating the game on accident for her), and I do plan on getting a copy of DQ9 for her so she can play it for herself (she'll probably beat DQ4 before then though). So this is kind of going to be a log for my game progress as I don't think I saw any other threads for general game progress on here and to keep up motivation to keep playing the game while taking brief breaks from it. And so I can feel productive. I won't be surprised if I manage to finish the game before the end of July, but we'll see. I'll just edit this every so often for the team and stats of each member, me and my sister might play multiplayer from time to time if I manage to get the game (I have the money for it atm, I just can't find it). Current team (put under spoilers because it will be a lot): Currently I'm just slogging through the intro and making my way towards actual combat, hoping to finish it sometime tomorrow as I'm in a writer's block and artist's block atm. (I'd work on my stories more but I'm just not feeling inspiration atm, and my small motivation for working on my Miitopia fanfic is because I was very disappointed by the lack of Miitopia fanfictions outside of tumblr. Working on a contest entry involving Dragon Quest, but otherwise, not really motivated.) Anyways let's just hope I succeed in actually beating the game for once

    Really strange to see a new item added to a game which hasn't had any thing new added in 11 years. IV and VI has altered and/or added content on mobile compared to its DS counterparts, but all V got was some small balance changes like tweaks to MP costs. Also I haven't checked every single party member in the game or anything, but at first glance it appears only our purple-clad hero can equip it, so no need to purchase more than one.

    Saw that during the World Cup final today. It legit looked like a good movie. My wife said no music either, they're making it without musical numbers. Interesting. Mulan has a lot going for it in the translation to live action, in a weird way. Aside from Eddie Murphy as Mushu, there are no memorable roles that would be recast that would upset fans. I know you said there wouldn’t be any music, but had they decided to put them in, the four musical numbers involve characters walking (except for I’ll Make a Man Out of You, which is a training montage), so the singing and dancing doesn’t have anything in it that makes it work in animation more than live action. It’s a war movie, so the trend of making these movies hyper serious makes sense in the case of Mulan. Just looking at the Wikipedia for it, the cast list alone shows how far it’s departed from the original movie. Like, there’s gonna be a witch in this movie. They even cast mostly (not all) Chinese actors. Usually, you’ll see a mixture of Korean, Taiwanese, and Japanese actors mixed in, as was the case with the original Mulan (which was fine since it’s an animated movie), so that’s a nice touch.

    It's now available at the Nintendo eShop. When I posted that comment, it wasn't available. Yeah it only happened a couple minutes after you posted. Wanted to make sure you saw it when you came back. Apperantly it's downloading on my Switch now, since I thought clicking it would ask for some confirmation or something, so I'll have it downloaded on both systems when I get home.

    Interesting. I've pre-ordered and am Prime. I hope I get that price. Their pre-order guarantee is supposed to cover that. I think if you keep your current pre-order, Amazon will refund you the difference after your pre-order is delivered. You could also cancel your current pre-order and pre-order it again, and you should pay only $51.99 (without sales tax), given you're already an Amazon Prime member.

    It’s extremely frustrating not seeing Final Fantasy 8 or Dragon Quest 7 along side their brethren on my iPhone and iPad lol. I ordered a 2DS XL on Friday (I got the Pikachu one because it looks awesome lol 😂) and it will be in on Tuesday, according to Amazon. I’ve been 3DS-less for about a year now which is why I haven’t played it. I gave my New 3DS XL to my step-stone last summer along with my Pokémon games (I kept DQ 7 and 8 and my Zelda games though lol) because his got stolen and he was upset about it. I had hoped that DQ 7 mobile would be a year or a year and a half after the 3DS release so I didn’t rush out and buy a replacement 3DS. I’ve been replaying DQ 6 on my iPad and I said “Damnit I want to play the DQ 7 remake already.” So I went to Amazon to look at 3DS models and saw the Pikachu 2DS XL and said “Okay I’m buying that one.” I will probably get halfway through the 3DS version and SE will release the mobile version lol.
