  1. Seems the site was under some sort of attack and I had to work with support to try to figure out what was going on and secure the site better. The site is now behind cloudflare CDN and firewall which is why the browser check comes up when accessing the site at first. I need to see if I can find a fix for tapatalk yet, and the news on the main page isn't working as I was using an RSS reader for that. I may just have to write my own code for that.

  3. Thank you! That's definitely what I was going for when I first started... oh my, that's about two years ago, time sure flies I'm really glad I have the opportunity to share it with the DQ community. Rivals may be ending soon, but the memories will remain as long as everything the game offered to the players is well preserved! Unfortunately that's a bit tricky with the dubbing work, but at least all the artworks (and heck I love what they did with the artstyle) will be available to anyone

  4. Events: --- Dragon Quest IV --- The heroes from IV emerged from a portal while searching for the Chosen Hero, finding that the three siblings have an aura much like the one they seek, before defeating Psaro and other Dragon Quest IV opponents and returning to their world to find the hero. Also Maia briefly wanted to open some kind of tourist attraction I think? --- Dragon Quest V --- Bishop Ladja appears on Brullia, along with Sancho and Papas who is searching for his missing son, before the three defeat Ladja and Sancho and Papas return to their world.

  9. Hi! I started playing near the beginning last year, so I remember a lot. I've attempted to spitball my own summary from memory... I'm sure there's a better way to summarize it than this, so take this with a grain(truckload) of salt (it might have errors), just a rough first approximation. Maybe other players can correct me on some of the details? Also, I'll admit I didn't find the story in this game as well-polished / well-paced as that of a mainline Dragon Quest game. Also also, this came out SUPER DUPER LONG, so I totally understand if it's too long and you don't read it / just ski

  10. Phantasy Star Log #1 So I tried to kill this Medusa in a dungeon but I need a specific item to win so I died. I also went to a town where a guy was dwelling in a dungeon and was killing animals. I also bought Odin a better gun.

  12. Hi everyone! I'm still working through pointers for items. I figure getting this done gives me space that I can use to stick dungeon text in. Some names are changing for items too but not too many. I'm trying to get more accurate translations in now I have the space for it. No screenshots of anything exciting unfortunately but I might do some of the story text today.

  15. Got em! Ragnar appears during the battle to retake Accordia, which is fairly late into the game. It's after the Battle of the Great Divide, and just shortly after the king betrays you, manipulated by Fractos in disguise. He appears in the first room you retake, and there's some dialogue spoken. He apparently does not appear in any major cutscenes. Will confirm more about this as the game goes on. Ragnar literally has zero MP, and all his moves use exactly zero MP as well, meaning this is completely unique to him and a nice throwback to DQ4. Ragnar uses Healix for a lot of his moves. Heali

  18. Going to log my play here, kinda like I did with Slime Mori Mori 3 when that translation dropped 1.7 years ago! Steps to get this working: 1. Obtain your legal copy of DQM2 & dump the ROM 2. Follow these directions to patch it: https://github.com/Ich73/DQM2-FanTranslation/wiki/Installing-on-Citra-(Release) 3. The newest Nightly Citra versions SUCKS with it, this has proved 100X better: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1524 4. Play!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. I started playing the Japanese version of Stars as soon as they announced Global version was going down. The 2nd and 3rd seasons (so planets) are available as soon as you beat Marquis de Leon in the main storyline, which quite early on. It's a shame honestly, cause the space government looked to cool in the art one can find around. I'd definitely going to screenshot every line of dialog and try review it on the French wiki too. Already started doing it with the first season. Beating the story and being able to review it chapter per chapter is a blessing. Playing Japanese 1s

  20. Season 2 was going to be one of the next things released before we got the announcement that the game was shutting down.... I believe the JP version has two other story planets in addition to Brullia, so that was where the next story segment would likely take us. A screenshot retelling of season 1 would be awesome! Maybe we can even add it to the Den main site as a memory of the time we did have with the game.

  21. Haha. That asterisk holder would definitely fit right in with the series. Most characters you meet are either going mad or are already. I have to say (and I’ll spoiler this just to be safe):

  22. In retrospect, I agree with your qualms about exploration. I didn’t much notice it at the time, but it was truly underwhelming if my memory serves me adequately. On a positive note, I was ecstatic to read an update in this log! I’ve always wanted to log my play in a game but never bucked down and did it. I guess I’m afraid I’ll forget to share important details lol. Can’t wait to read the next update!

  23. Hard to say. I would guess since you can make it, it becomes the signature sword for 11’s hero, sort of like how the original was one for Erdwin. Essentially it becomes “canon” because you made it a reality.

  27. Hello folks. I've been gone a long time. Had a rough year last year (nothing to do with Covid) but things have settled for me. To be blunt, with my life all beeped up last year, I barely touched a video game. Since learning of the tragic fate of DQS, I'm wondering if anyone can point me to any resources that summarize the main story chapters. I'm seriously considering a fan project: novelization the story with illustrations. I might have it set up online at some point.

  30. My daughter busted a set of 10-year-old headphones a few days ago. I have another set of headphones that I bought the same day as the now broken headphones that still see heavy use. I have a pocket notebook that I have been using for 15 or so years to take notes at work (I don't take very many notes). The keyboard on my computer is from a Lenovo desktop I purchased in 2010. The matching mouse finally bit the dust last year, but the keyboard is still in great condition. My van is 16 years old. In true Ohio fashion the bottom of it is rusted to hell and I will likely be able to see through parts

  31. And boom, like sands through the hourglass so are the days of the Desert Key being done. 5 hours in, took out the bosses of the first Key World. Lots of casualties, but hey, it's a war! Props to WiFi for the win, that's where it's at. Despite being the lowest ranked with any points, I got some great prizes. 10 skill seeds, mini medals, and the best... GOLD BARS! I was almost 5 hours in and total haven't made 1000 gold. The gold bars I just won sold for 9,000! Buying everyone a weapon (even the backups) helped with that final battle! Haven't learned monster breeding yet, but I bet that's comi

  32. This game is in a much better position to last than Global Stars ever was. I can see it going at least 2 years. I do still question why it's not single server for everyone (like Fire Emblem Heroes or Granblue Fantasy), but for a separate global server I do think it stands more of a chance than Stars for the same reasons as Iggy. Provided they don't like, completely botch the game management down the road like Stars did. A separate English server can last so long as they, you know, actually seem to care about the game, and Tact so far doesn't have the gigantic warning signs Stars had

  33. Things are heating up. Got to the first Key World, and it's a desert. Loving how the monsters interact in the environments. The caterpillars stay in the tall grass, this porcupine-link Quillers run away from you & go into burrows scattered throughout. Sabrecubs roam the plains or stay in cliffside dens. Moles are using their shovels to dig into cliffs. It's all so interactive! Thanks to some help [email protected] and a huge block of time, I'm now playing on my freshly hacked 3DS! Loving it so far.

  34. Oooo, so you’re finally starting Grandia 2? I might have to duck out of this topic then Twinkie since I haven’t played it yet but really want to. Want to go in as a fresh as possible after reading your early impressions, so good luck with the rest of your adventure.

  36. This made me quite sad and yet so grateful to the game, thinking back on how much it is and will ever be dear to me. April marks 2 years I've been doing translations and guides for everything the game offered, and overall 3 years of me playing it. I'm not sure to what extent this was known to the dedicated groups on other platforms, but since I want everything that was done to be preserved for the DQ community, I would be glad to share everything I worked on here on Dragon's Den as well. I have the translation files for every set released and guides for pretty much every mode in the game,

  39. Finished Yakuza Like a Dragon! Very emotional ending, and I have to give Ichiban’s English voice actor credit for his work in the post final battle scenes. Shocking stuff happened before the credits rolled. With Yakuza done and the post game now opened up, looks like I can focus on Bravely Default 2 now. Yakuza was a damn good game, I really enjoyed it. Not sure if I’ll go back and play previous games from the series, but if there are more games starting Ichiban and company going forward I’ll definitely check those games out.

  40. I’m in chapter 15 of Yakuza! Looks the end is in sight since the game called this chapter “Finale,” instead of chapter 15. I had to laugh how chapter 14 ended. It makes it look like Ichiban died, but then the game immediately gives you a brand new summon character as soon as the cutscene ends. Maybe should have saved that for the beginning of chapter 15 so the player gets that feeling of dread something actually did happen to Ichiban. That summon notification immediately killed any mood!

  42. Did a lot of grinding in the battle arena and got the party up to levels 48-49. You can get a lot of high end equipment from the lower 10 floors, so I kept running them for equipment and lots of EXP for levels and jobs. Going to try and tackle the Omi Alliance dungeon and bosses again. God, I hope all this grinding will pay off so I can actually continue on with the game.

  44. The battle arena has definitely been the way to go. Played for an hour tonight and got the party up to level 41-43. Kind of feels like the game REALLY should have pushed you to just do this arena instead of throwing you to the wolves in the Omi Alliance dungeon, but maybe that’s just hindsight or continued annoyance at that sudden difficulty spike. The arena has given me good armor and weapons, but it’s been really boring. The game tries to implement challenges and rules per fight, but I pretty much just kept spamming Ichiban’s 200 MP skill whenever a large group of enemies was present. U

  45. So, after finishing the 3DS version of DQ7, I'm reviving this dead behemoth of thread just to say that Maribel is the best girl, she may be annoying but she clearly progress through the story from a soar tsundere to a sweet one. Also she seems to be kinder in the French version of the game than in the English one I feel. For exemple: And just because that quote was better in French (which is a superior language anyway), I will now defend Maribel to the #$*!ing death, come at me.

  47. That I don't know. It's possible they had the framework and were like, "Here, take care of the backend and make sure it's stable." I never encountered any bugs either, but I did hear of a couple. They may have fixed the bad ones when inserting the English script.

  48. Oh my gosh, the greatest 2 GBA games ever I remember getting The Lost Age and realizing right before the final boss it was a sequel, haha! I went to great lengths to acquire the first one. I managed to collect all the Djinns and after I beat the game I transferred all my data to The Lost Age. I had to replay the entire game, but it was totally worth the extra effort! I have yet to play the new DS game, which makes me incredibly sad. I hope I can get my hands on it soon!
