  1. Happy Easter to the Den! I got to be one of the lectors for tonight's Vigil Mass and was assigned to read about the parting of the red sea and subsequent destruction of Pharaoh and his armies.

  3. After having used it for a bit now, I can unfortunately say I'm not a fan of the new forums update. Everything got moved around and it's buggy. It looks as if I'm not the only one that gets kicked to an error page any time I try to do anything but read and post. I can't even select text on mobile when I *am* trying to post - doing so makes the selection but then hides the keyboard and pulls up what appears to be a link long-touch menu, despite no link existing in the text. Trying to bring back the keyboard deselects the text. I'm not blaming Woodus, it's IP.board's fault. Why can't developers just leave well enough alone and just fix bugs/security? Why do they have "fix" what isn't broken? The old version was fine!

  5. Hey y'all, I've been a longtime lurker to this amazing community and a fan of the series for over 10 years. My love for Dragon Quest started when I first discovered the "Journey of the Cursed King", as it did for so many in Europe. I was around 10 to 12 years old and everything about it just engulfed me right in. I remember searching the website for help with the later portions of the game, such as finding the right bows to create Angelo's strongest bow and that's how it all started. As the years progressed I steadily built up my collection but only recently I've been able to get all the games you can in the PAL region, and I'm yet to play through them all, believe it or not. So with that said, I just hope to engage with some of you in the nearby future, hopefully about the remaining adventures I have yet to go on and if you want to talk with a stranger, feel free to shoot me a message and we can start a conversation. Thank you for your time and have a good day.

  6. Kazuya being added to Smash Ultimate was a great way to start today’s Nintendo Direct. Looking forward to Advanced Wars Rebooted, Metroid Dread, the new Mario Party, and Shin Megami Tensei V.

  8. 3DS game issues, better check your library: Essentially I would check your DS and 3DS carts (also older flash-based games like GBA). Flash data is not as subject to destruction as you'd think. You can keep it going longer by giving it a bit of electricity and usage now and again. Already disc-based media is outliving their supposed death dates...and going. My nearly 40 year old software still works, reads, and doesn't have any major issues. I do know flash does seem to function better with usage. That said, this seems to be a hardware issue for some carts, but no absolute it's that for all of them. Could be bad sectors leading to early degredation, could be issues with the system itself (like not refreshing, as I've encountered the same problem and it impacted my memory card and system storage, which was fixed after resetting my 3DS). I should also mention there are a lot of listings going up all over the place in major retailers of the Switch Pro/New Nintendo Switch. That's a fairly good sign Nintendo has put out info they're ready to announce soon or it's already prepped and listed for retailers to note for an inevitable placeholder. Some country stores, like Amazon Mexico, are jumping the gun, but it does mean the announcement is inevitable. Could be pre-e3, could be something later this year for next year (since they just released a new revision...that might be more likely).

  10. Dragon Quest Dai answers the age worn question of what happens when you taken an Orphen, and mix it with a Dragonball. I did not like the start, as it felt overly childish, and lacking any of the clever sophistication that made Dragonball a classic, or the more adult themed hardline questions that bolstered Orphen's succinct presentation. However, I am growing to enjoy the characters, especially everything after the Crocodine battle. I really need to watch the original, as the spread of episodes is different (there's clearly more story presented in the original, this one being a very simplified version that trims a lot of details). See what's missing. It is a good start, and I am looking forward to Maam (funny how Dai, the child-like Hero, has companions named Maam and Popp...why? then again Madara and Papas in DQV, and the original Dai was created between V and VI, so I suppose that was a heavy influence). Dai better end with the Princess, instead of one of those ridiculous anime tropes where no real love connection is ever realized, just teased or always a near miss, or one or another is too afraid to make any move...for 100+ episodes.

  17. Hey @Woodus, can we go back to the old forums? I can't even type a post without this version locking up on me. My text cursor keeps jumping around, and then it disappeared altogether. Refreshing the page didn't fix it, I had to come to this page to be able to type again.
