  1. Dragon Quest VII (PS1 version) is one of my favorite games of all time. The 3DS version is pretty decent, too. The overarching story and all of the supporting vignettes are pretty damned good. If anyone said it's boring or bland it's most likely due to a general dislike of the Dragon Quest series. The class system in the PS1 version is amazing.

  2. I've written several essay posts on this. Deleted each of them. I'm not sure if I really want to get into this without overcomplicating matters. Dragon Quest VII is my favourite game with good reason. It's a HEAVILY flawed game, and sadly, while the 3DS version is my favourite, while it addresses many flaws in the original, it creates whole new flaws on its own. The beginning of the game is slow on purpose. It's meant to be a slow burn built around the curiosity and intrigue of an island in the middle of a huge empty ocean. The ONLY island, and it's a veritable paradise. No one

  3. Googling stuff from Reddit is a great way to hear the absolute worst news about anything. It's devisive among fans sure, but subjectively horrible? No. Maybe listen to us talk about it more in depth instead of reading Reddit headlines...? [emoji8] https://anchor.fm/dqslimetime/episodes/Episode-007---Yangus--DQVII-e8sb02

  4. Dragon Quest 7 is to me one of the best games in the series and is my personal favorite game from DQ. It isn’t perfect, but the game has so much to see and do and has some of the best town vignettes of the series. Seeing the world constantly grow thanks to your actions is very satisfying and makes your quest feel worthwhile. Definitely worth playing. But I’m a little biased towards it since I like it so much.

  5. Paced poorly? Yes. Quest flaggy? Absolutely. Bland? What? No. Seriously, there are some valid complaints out there about 7. Bland isn't one of them.

  6. Dragon Warrior VII is contender for the absolute best game of all time, tied with Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Dragon Quest X ONLINE: Rise of the Five Races

  7. ...People say that? Where? I like DQVII, it's fun. I do think it tries too hard to be DQVI but bigger, but that doesn't mean it's a bad game on its own.

  8. Long time no see! Quite a few years ago I created an app to assist players with the Lucky Panel game in DQVII. I came across the source code the other day so I put it up on github to make sure I wouldn't lose it. The app itself is actually hosted here, but it's an older version. You can grab the latest version and/or view the code here: https://github.com/cain05/DQVIILuckyPanel/releases. Note that it's based on the PSX version, but it's still more or less applicable to the 3DS version. I may update the app in the future, but there's no immediate plans to do so. You'll need to ha

  9. The only time I saw a negative comment on GameFAQs that was to the point was on VOLFOSS (amazing design, but horrible game) and among the lines of "Years passed, and I still do not understand the japanese in this game" (I myself know 0 japanese, but seems to be the case). If game's anything atleast mildly well-known, it's bile all the way in comments.

  12. My first DQ game was Dragon Quest V on the DS. I was actually aware of the series for a long time since I was a kid, having read about the series on Nintendo Power, but I didn't get into it then because they were hard to find. Since then, I had forgotten about the series until I got interested in RPGs in my teens, and reading about the history of JRPGs got me into checking out Dragon Quest, a series that I knew as a kid but never got into for various reasons. DQV on the DS happened to be the most recent release at the time, which made it easy for me to get, and, well, I've never been more glad

  16. In DQ11S I’ve gotten the ore from the Battleground and have completed the events in Act 2 Gallopolis. I’m impressed with how they handled a certain character in the different language options, but I’ll put that in a spoiler tag just to be safe... Now it’s off to Mt. Huji for the final part of the Sword making quest.

  17. I love that show. Definitely one of my favorites. I missed the final season and n live television, so I’m looking forward to it being added to Netflix. Fun fact, the girl who works in the diner is the real life daughter of Eugene Levy, aka Johnny Rose, and sister of Daniel Levy, who plays David Rose.

  18. The game is long. But it is an absolute Gem, in all it's forms.

  19. Bienvenidos! You're pretty much right where I am. I haven't tried it yet because I've been an ogre for 20 hours, so it was nice being human again, but from what I gather, it's an option at churches. On a funny side note, I stood outside the house where I was made human again for a good 5-10 minutes laughing as people spawned just standing in their underwear. Silly funny!

  20. DQX let you make your own outfits out of any equipment in the game and you could wear an outfit visually even if you have different armour equipped for battle. This should be standard in DQ going forward and I don't know why the feature wasn't in XI.

  21. Hey, Tenshi! Yeah, webmoney so that I can buy Crysta to use ob the shop. Playasia has been out of stock, so I found another place. Cn-usa.com. works pretty good, but they make you verify after a certain amount of purchases.

  22. I think it’s fair to say the bulk of the criticism Dragon Quest as a series gets is that it’s too old school. This obviously doesn’t bother us but it’s an issue to other people. Most new JRPGs try to do something different. Dragon Quest XI has been uniformly praised for blending the old and new. That being said, I went through the Reddit thread “Goddamnit Dragon Quest 7 is extremely boring” and the bulk of the negative response isn’t about anything inherent to Dragon Quest. Mostly, people criticized the slow start. The more positive spins on this criticism is that it gets better 20 hours

  23. I remember around the time DQ7 3DS came out I found an article from Kotaku (gags) about how the church was an awful thing in DQ7. The writer complained not only about it being used to save, but that you had to use it all the time to remove poison and revive party members and how it was a terrible system. Now, obviously this person never got far enough or never bothered to see that stores carry antidote herbs to cure poison, you get the Squelch spell to remove poison for a few MP, you eventually can learn Zing... What was funnier yet is that the screenshots the guy used were from the

  24. I remember the post to the 3DS subreddit you showed in the image. The complaints were pretty much about things that made it a Dragon Quest game. It was clear that the people criticizing it didn't like JRPGs.

  25. You do find those people on there who genuinely have level headed opinions and can have good gaming conversations with, but yes, the majority of folks are negative about everything. I’ve always felt like this line from Star Wars fits GameFAQs all too well: “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.”

  26. Fixed that for you. GameFAQs is good for 3 things: 1. Walkthroughs/FAQs 2. Quick answers to specific questions, like where to get items, quest info & such 3. The most toxic opinions around

  27. That’s your problem then. You saw stuff like that from websites like GameFAQs and Reddit. GameFAQs is a place you should never take opinions from, especially negative ones. That website has a lot of people who are pretty negative about any aspect of the DQ series.

  28. Bland? As if. Greatest game in the franchise if you ask me. And it'd still be the greatest one even if it Maribel wasn't in it. But she is, making this game the best one and second best one altogether.

  29. Vocal minority in the fanbase. Likely less a minority in general as probably few fans made it to the class system in the PS1 days. Is one of those races named Skywalker? I see a DQ/Disney acquisition in the future!
