    What RPG's are you currently playing?

    Unpopular opinion around here, but I always felt like FFIX was the worst... At least out of the first 10.

    Dragon Quest XI Progress

    I was aware of that before the game was even released in the US. Since I superleveled to 99 I just beat him down the "hard" way.

    Dragon Warrior 7 vs DQ7?

    3DS version was good, but PS1 version was and is my favorite Dragon Quest game. I absolutely love that engine and I am glad they reused it in the 4-6 remakes. The ability to make god-like characters capable of using every skill and spell in the game is exciting to me. I also miss how fast battles moved in the older games.

    What's New with you?

    Picked up Heroes and Heroes 2 from the Steam sale. Been looking forward to these for a while.
  6. I can see where those traits of DQ5 could be off-putting and I do agree that the "Hey, you're NOT the Legendary Hero" plot twist was annoying. I feel like they tried to make up for it by putting the Sun Crown, Pallium Regale, Shimmering Shield, and Dragon Staff in the game... you know, kind of a subtle nod to let you know, yeah, your not the Legendary Hero, buy you're still our Hero. I thought the first two Monsters games were glorious. I couldn't really get into Caravan Heart. The Joker games... well... they could have done better. 7 for the PS1 is my favorite Dragon Quest game. Head and shoulders above the rest of the series. Everyone's got their own opinion, especially as far as music goes, but I felt like 8's music was good, but lesser than a lot of the other games in the series, orchestral or not. I am really happy that the music is better than the music from the games after it. Dragon Quest 9, in particular, had a super weak soundtrack.
  7. I am surprised that you rank 5 so low, but seem to really enjoy the Monsters series. My favorite aspect of 5 is the fact that you get to recruit and use monsters. Not a fan of the story?
  8. The spawn rate is low enough that I caught my Phoenix and Blizzardy from foreign trainers.

    Dragon Warrior Online -

    I briefly played a DQ MMO years ago that was made reusing assets from DQ 1-4 NES. Honestly, all I remember from the experience is that it wasn't terribly enjoyable. Not saying yours would be any better or worse... just not sure how enjoyable things like this can possibly be.

    Hey there.

    Welcome to the Dragon's Den. I desperately wish I had time to do things I actually want to do without skipping out on the little sleep I get. I managed to beat DQXI, DQVIIDS, and DQVIIIDS by reducing sleep from 6-7 hours a night to 3-4 hours a night.

    I second this sentiment. Deb rocks.

    Hi there!!

    Welcome to the Den. I, too, am a big fan of the music in the Dragon Quest series. Chateau Ladutorm was one of the first songs I learned on guitar.

    Dragon Quest XII Possible Names

    Or they take place in parallel universes with Zenithia acting as a transdimensional nexus?

    Dragon Quest XII Possible Names

    It almost seems like they intentionally wait a hardware generation per game since VI.
  15. This would be cruel and unusual. It would make battles for the first half of the game fairly non-threatening though.
