  1. Iggy, have you *played* X? Some of your points seem pretty far off. Most of X is easier than XI without Draconian Quest settings. There are some difficult bosses and some very challenging "bonus" stuff, but as far as the story goes it's soooo easy. It's a bit of a time sink but it's worthy of your time. Imagine DQXI but you can party up with others kind of like IX, and your turns in battle are determined by an invisible timer rather than a set order. DQX isn't a typical MMO. For all the people here who absolutely love VIII, IX and XI I can't for the life of me understand why they com

  2. And this is why I'd love to have it localized. I just want to play, damn it.

  3. You're A ) looking at the final form of the final boss of v1 (so he's atypical for the majority of DQX bosses), B ) a final boss fight done at 2 time difficulty, and C ) a four year old video. There have been a large number of changes made to the game in recent years to make the game much more accessible especially in early game content. You really don't start encountering the tougher bosses until around version 3 (which for me, wasn't until I hit the 500 hour mark). And even then they are all perfectly solo-able. The only time you need to bring along real people is if you're doing some of t

  4. I haven't seen it in this thread but I've seen people on the Den say they don't want it just because it's an MMO. Usually they say something to the effect of "I hated WOW/Ragnarok/FF14 so I don't want an MMO at all, it's dumb and shouldn't be localized" without considering the fact the DQX is absolutely nothing like these games.

  5. That explains why people aren't currently playing it, but does not explain people saying "it's an MMO I don't want it to come out here".

  6. In game chat is relegated to relatively short messages, but more can be said in Japanese than in English with the space we're given. I bet an official localization would up the message size limit at least a bit. Either way, it's totally usable. There is no native voice chat but in a world of Steam, Discord, TeamViewer, etc. it's really not a problem. If I'm playing with a group that has mics we can use another program, and I have no desire to hear 1000 randos eating their mics in a town square.

  7. Yeah I'll second what others have said. The biggest reason why I want DQX to come over is because it is absolutely nothing like you're typical MMO. Most of the things you've described@ignasia do not apply to DQX.

  8. Disagree. Strongly. I've played and beaten FF12 and I'd say while there are similarities, it's not FF12's system. Nope. It's DQIX to its core, with an ATB.

  9. 150 Vita games!? The vast majority of which were games I’ve played or intend to play, believe it or not. Sometimes you just stumble into weird deals. I saw Virtua Tennis 4. It’s not expensive but it is uncommon, so I bought it. I randomly found Valhalla Knights 3 for $25 still sealed. Not a good game, I hear, but it’s uncommon enough that I don’t see it on eBay often at all, let alone sealed. At the same store, someone sold their copies of multiple Hyperdimension Neptunia games and I stand to make good money on them since the store I got them from didn’t know their worth. I once

  10. So true. So are you going to play those or keep them or sell them? I honestly don’t know. I do have the codes somewhere in my email so it’s not like I need the physical games, but I also don’t want to go and waste space on my memory card for games I don’t care about. They came at a weird time, where I’ve actually been purging a lot of games I owned for the sake of owning, and the Vita is the #1 offender. I bought a lot of games as I saw prices beginning to rise. I got deals on some of them but not all. I’ve stacked up about...50 games? I think? That I’m gonna get rid of. I

  11. DQ10 for the West? Pipe dream. Gamstat is an amazing site. Really opened my eyes, as I was wondering why the US sales for the PS4 edition hadn't hit 500k for DQ11. There are more DQ11 sales between the Switch, PS4, and the PC version than DQ's 8, and even 9 in the US. It's actually LOWER in Europe by a sizeable margin. DQ has been in decline in Europe ever since DQ8. Slow and steady decline, with a core and very loyal fanbase, but no perpetual growth for some reason (it's been bombing in the UK, even the Action games, but then the UK seems desperate to play anything that isn't sword

  12. Murdaw, being the infamous boss that he is, deserved something a little more thorough that what I gave to all the other bosses up to now. For better or worse, that means Part 8 is super long, and split into three parts. In fact, the third isn't even done yet; I just finished up 1 and 2. So, hope you enjoy!
