    Heyo! Heh, long time no see! So I made a DQ doodle and thought I'd share. It had a cuss in it, but I made it decent, don't worry. Be lucky (PS-I've never uploaded a file onto here, I hope it works)

    Hello guys! So I have been working on a translation guide on how to play the mobile game 星のドラゴンクエスト/Hoshi no Dragon Quest/Dragon Quest of the Stars. Not only am i working on a guide but also have a Discord server where we can plan multiplayer quests, discuss about the game, where i post my guides, talk about the series as whole, etc. I welcome everyone to join. The main mission is to bring current players together and have newcomers join and help eachother on quests, using the multiplayer feature. Id like for fans to give this game a try if they haven't yet. It is not region locked or IP locked, you do have to either change your play stores region or download QooApp application to download the game since it may not be available to your country, but as far as opening the game and playing it requires no VPN or any sort of trick to playing it. https://discord.gg/GhaWysV I am also looking for people who would like to help with Translation and being Discord Mod. Message me for details if you have free spare time and would like to have a fun project to collaborate with, have ideas youd like to share, or just want to give to the DQ community in any way.

    I don't think Square Enix will actually remake Dragon Quest IX in the coming years because I think they would rather remake Dragon Quest I - III using Dragon Quest XI's engine or a similar graphical style. The reason for this is because earlier, I recall a topic saying that they wanted to remake Dragon Quest III in the previously mentioned style but then said that they'd first work on Dragon Quest XII which, if the last game is a sign, is still a good few years away. However, a Dragon Quest IX remake for switch does have excellent potential.

    Thank you for the compliment, jay! I've been a fan of DQ since the olden days, and it's fun to experiment/practive with DQ dudes. I hope you continue to enjoy! Let me know if there's anything specific you wanna see.

    Was it this one? If so that one should be on the page below https://www.woodus.com/den/site/userbars.php?tp=userbar&grp=general&current=20 All the rest of them should be there as well, I should probably make some for builders and XI

    Honestly I'd primarily just want sprite consistency. One of my biggest gripes about that game is how jarring it looks for NPCs to be 2D sprites while your character and field monsters are full 3d models. That and even more postgame content will serve me another million years.

    I don’t know, DQ8 does have some funny moments with the protagonist just off to the side. Specifically the bar fight scene in Simpleton where he just stands there awestruck while bottles and other whatnot objects going flying in front of him. But I get what you mean though.

    By translation department do you mean localization for the games? Each game is kinda handled differently. For DQ specifically, actually, message me! Haha, I'm very satisfied career-wise but it's a lot of hard work. It's interesting seeing the inner workings and seeing how fans comes up with their own conclusions as to why things are they way they are.

    I got a new job. I’ll be starting at the end of this month so I can finish my two weeks at my current job. I’ve been looking for new work since my current job has been stingy on hours, so I’m glad my search has finally ended in success.

    I imagine if Square Enix decides to put the exclusive features of Dragon Quest XI S as paid DLC for the PlayStation 4 & PC versions, you'll probably have to wait for a minimum of a year after Dragon Quest XI S is released on the Nintendo Switch. I wouldn't expect future Dragon Quest games (or any future JRPGs in general) to have the same amount of content no matter what console it's being played on, if I were you, since there's always going to be definite versions of JRPGs released on consoles other than the consoles the games were originally released on.

    In honor of this very special day, it’s time for me to use my absolute favorite DQ character as my profile picture: Prince Charmles from Dragon Quest VIII. No other DQ character is as perfect as him. Truly the pinnacle of the entire series!

    I will say, it was kinda lame of them to decide not to localize the 3DS version because, I assume, they planned on bringing over the Switch version that offered the same experience, and not explain why they did this. Like, I get that they wanted to reveal things at the right time on their own time, but a lot of people bought the PS4 version because they assumed they weren’t getting anything resembling the 3DS game. I think this is just a “me” thing though because I haven’t heard much #$*!ing about it.

    I personally hate the word "fair". The world would be a more accepting place if people ignored the idea of fairness as equating to equalness. Two completely different concepts. I'll stop here, but whenever this comes up in elementary school it's a good 5 minute lecture from me that assures kids never use that word again in my room. That said, I'd pay good DLC money to turn my PS4 version into this, but I doubt that'll happen for a year or more, likely never. This sets the stage for DQIX remake with a good online group play component to come to Switch next.

    Wow, I am so sorry for missing this thread (and lets face it, every other thread in the last several months). Thank you so much! I had a great birthday, filled with laughter, thrills and cheesecake. So who can ask for more than that? Sorry for being so out of touch lately. Life has reached a kind of ridiculous pace and my real-life crafty cartography work is keeping me very busy. Lots of travel lately, which used to mean opportunities to meet with Denizens in their local habitats. I was just in St. Louis and then San Diego but didn't have a second to spare in either case. Alex, if I am back in Santa Fe again, I will make time for sure to come find you. On the rare occasion that I am not fully occupied with work or family stuff, I picked up a mapping drone and have been using it to make 3D models of terrain and buildings (and staying well away from airports...). On the Dragon Quest side, I now have Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2, Builders and Dragon Quest XI. I have managed to play about an hour of each and that's it. They all seem so great but I just can't manage to commit more than a few hours a month for console gaming anymore. Still plenty of time for mobile games, but I don't think we've seen a new western release for those in a while. Anyway, that's what's happening in my life at the moment. Hope all is well you guys and thanks again for thinking of me on my birthday!

    So...New Year’s resolution was to do a new recipe each week. Stuff happened in February that discouraged me from continuing after making two new recipes (both of which aren’t worth mentioning, they were basically appetizers that were meh) and last month I was focused on trying to find a new job I didn’t think about the recipe stuff. Today, I broke that and tried a new recipe. I don’t know if I can keep up with a new recipe each week, but I’ll do what I can. With that, here’s the new one I tried: It seems like an odd combo of stuff (particularly the cream of mushroom, honey, and horseradish) but man, it was GOOD. I cubed my potatoes rather small and had the soup cook for about 5 hours, and it was done and plenty hot. The mixture of ingredients was really unique, creating a great combination of flavors. Whenever I make this one again I’m going to substitute chicken for the turkey sausage, as I thought the sausage was the weakest part of the recipe. Still good, but it wasn’t quite as flavorful as everything else. Definitely going to make this one again in the future.

    Fortunately, that quest is confirmed to be coming to Dragon Quest XI S, but not without changes.

    From what I have read in the 3DS version there is a sidequest with them and that is how you get access to the older game areas, hopefully that comes across in the switch verison Odd I didn't see your comment before I posted mine, but I hope so as well

    I'm let down as well. But I have some hope that the Yocchi content that was exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version will makes its way to Dragon Quest XI S, and maybe we'll learn more about the Yoochi.

    It would be cool if they added the Dragon Quest XI party members as guests at the inn. Also some other things include adding a casino or monster arena, extra legacy bosses from Dragon Quest X and XI, and it would be cool if you could recruit party members from other Dragon Quest games as some sort of post game content or something like that.

    Ahh, it was a 5th member, OK, I thought the names got mixed up, I did see Bilche on the deck so I knew that character existed. And no worries on the end of demo message Great work!

    Nintendo handles publishing Level-5 games on their consoles overseas. As long as Nintendo wants to keep supporting Yo-Kai Watch and other Level-5 games, we’ll keep seeing releases over here even if they are a year or two behind the original Japanese releases. Nintendo and Level-5 (seem to) have a good relationship, so I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

    Square are the real kings of vaporware. Remember 13 "versus"? FF7 remake will become FF 16 lol Not that I hate FF, I just think the hype is too surreal. I have also noticed westerners bashing DQ whenever there's an announcement, in different languages. I think it's a real trend. Maybe with positive growth, negativity also increases, the series is getting more attention, in both ways. It annoys me because I love DQ and I think it's underappreciated. I don't want SE demoralized and stopping localizing DQ internationally. DQ and Persona are the only kind of games that I really enjoy lately.

    This is one of those things I feel is entirely up to interpretation, and I appreciate that. Ambiguity can be a good thing every now and then. It’s like Marcello’s fate in the PS2 version of DQ8: you don’t know exactly what happens to him after he walks away at the end of the game, and I thought that really worked for his story/character.

    It’s funny how certain games, particularly dialogue heavy RPGs, envoke this reaction. Everyone has a different game that does it. Guess we found Platty’s. 😜 Laura and Fie are now best friends. HOOOOOOOORAAAAAAY....who didn’t see that coming? Just beat your rival up with a sword and you’ll become BFFs before you know it!!! Seriously though, the cutscene where they cleared the air was well done. Much like how you finally learn Elliot’s full backstory (which was something I could relate to in a few ways in all honesty), it was good to learn more about Fie’s story. Shame she had a rough life, but at least she had plenty of love and support from those around her. I don’t want to jinx myself, but playing Trails of Cold Steel on a home console has made for a much more engrossing, can’t put it down experience. Granted, I had today off so it was easy to keep playing, but still, I’m greatly enjoying the game.

    This doesn't bode well in my eyes... I was hoping a success in China would convince SE that a broader worldwide release would be worth it.

    Yeah, but I would definitely feel the same about anime, even without a son who is half Japanese. 😀 With exception to Macross Plus and Howl's Moving Castle (which starred Brian Cranston and Billy Crystal, respectively) I've preferred subs to dubs since the early 90s. For a Blu Ray release I'd just like to have the option for both.

    Man, the amount of times today I've seen people say "DQ without Toriyama isn't DQ" is astounding. The movie still has traces of his art throughout and DQ is much more than Toriyama these guys aren't realizing. The first seven games were mostly pixelated. He only did concept art that the monsters and world would end up being based off of. Look at the Sabrecat, the Killing Machines and the Slime in the trailer and tell me they don't look exactly like the ones Toriyama drew. I'm really glad the characters don't have manga faces, but its still retaining Toriyama's art.

    Do pardon the necropost. I should know better. Anyway, the previously prefecture-exclusive 神将 (God General) monsters have been released as key monsters since November 2017. So now, all of you who still play DQM2 for whatever reason, be it missing a few monsters in the bestiary or because you just imported it, can breed Kunikuzushi and Togamihime without the reliance of StreetPassed copies, and there is at least a bit more variation in the Wi-Fi-exclusive key monster department.

    Well yeah, I'm doing fine if you care. Not logged during kids time either for the simple reason I got no clue what to do to access it. Anyway, I think I'll be back from time to time, if I find a way to get this kids time untill I decide to invest myself into another month of full anti social behaviours (which, now that I think of it, I never stopped doing!) Hope everyone is still going on, especially David (which doesn0t exist but I can't remember the name of my pal), and Bell, my sweetie. I leave you this eventual statement as a virtual whisper to my chronologically endeavour of fagocitating people attentions into my own little slice of egotism. See ya soon!

    So.....I haven't been on here in quite a while and my play has been nearly as limited, though I have managed to squeeze an hour or two in here or there. I'm just shy of 40 hours and I just got the magic key and grabbed the easy orb that comes thereafter. Hopefully my playtime increases soon, but realistically, who knows when I'll finish this game. That being said, one positive note I can add at this point, is that DQ XI is very easy to pick up after a hiatus.

    Square Enix barely cared about the 3DS in the west. They only self published 4 games as I recall, three of them having Final Fantasy in the title. Square Enix totally passing over the 3DS version for the west is no surprise. Thank god the content from that version will be in the Switch release.

    As long as we're discussing randomizers, I found one online by TheCowness. It's fully functional and has multiple options. (In order for the %-based 'scaling' options to work, 'shuffle encounters' must be on and possibly 'redistribute monster growths' as well - I haven't tested them separately.) Comes highly recommended. From my own playthroughs: The author does have fixed ArmyAnt, MadGopher, and "Squiz" as a Water-family monster with LureDance. Kid's Class did not work for me on either BGB or VBA-M if I used "shuffle encounters". While there is a workaround with loading savestates into an unmodified ROM, I recommend using GameShark codes to get Pirate Key. See section 1.3 of Jimeous's GameShark FAQ for details. I suspect Boss Family monsters are banned from appearing in shuffled encounters. In several playthroughs, I haven't seen a single one. I've seen no bugged movesets over several playthroughs, though I did once get a wild ChopClown with Defeat listed twice. "Known notable issue" #3 gets very noticeable if you're playing on higher-percentage scalings, where the monster in the third slot will regularly get pummeled by enemies with high ATK. Make sure whatever you put in the third slot has good HP and DEF, or it will die frequently. (Towards the endgame, it may die frequently even if it has good HP and DEF...) On the bright side, you can run around with monsters that are flimsier than they really should be in the first and second slots, as the enemies will almost never target them if the third monster is alive. Scaling everything to 0% results in an amusing walkover. Yes, you can scale EXP without randomizing anything else. For a laid-back game, crank EXP to 500%. On the flipside, this opens the way for a 0% EXP run... Is it even possible in vanilla? How do you handle Darck? Scaling everything to 50% results in an noticeably easier game, even with the EXP malus. Scaling everything to 200% or 500%... I'm not sure if this is more a symptom of 'redistribute growths' than anything else, but the wildly distributed stats result in some very strange monsters, including those with ATK to make a Grizzly envious. This leads to your monsters getting sniped without warning, and there's no real counter because the stat scaling results in wild monsters well beyond what breeding can get from anything short of ?-family monsters. I have particularly fond memories of my 999-HP Gasgon with HealAll (obtained in Ice). Lobbing Ribs at everything in the hopes of getting the latest monsters with superb stat spreads is an interesting alternate playstyle, but a money-heavy one. I recommend just using Repellents throughout Sky World after catching desirable monsters, as beating off the legions of turbocharged monsters starts putting a real strain on the team around then. I halfway wonder if it would feel smoother to boost the boss monster one stage higher than the regular wilds (500% for 200%, 200% for 100%). With uniform scaling, the bosses are generally anticlimatic compared to the mobs you have to slog through to get there. I should try that the next time I try a run. Dark Man should be counted as the true final boss of Limbo, as every team I've had that can beat him can beat the randomized "Darck". Having three randomized (and potentially scaled) monsters is more of a danger than a single monster without vanilla Darck's quirks. Monsters seem to prefer physical attacks to special moves for whatever reason (I suppose this is related to "known notable issue" #3), which means that Radiant/Surround/SandStorm are suddenly some of the best moves in the game. A side effect of "redistributed growths" is that your best bet for getting good stats is to shoot for the highest BSTs, and some generic breeds have surprisingly high BSTs. I recommend Wyvern (96), MistyWing (87), and Snaily (86) in particular. Anyway, again, I highly recommend it.
