  1. After what we’ve found out about him, I’m not surprised he’s essentially been canceled. I love Sugiyama’s music, but that’s the only thing I like about the guy.

  4. In my quest to import Japanese DQ games and scan their manuals, I discovered that there are two different versions of the original DQ Monsters in Japan! One is for the original Game Boy, and the other is for the Game Boy Color. Apparently, the game had released before the GBC system was actually available for purchase, and there was a second printing to emphasize GBC compatibility. I recently got both versions together to compare (each cost me $1 before shipping, lol), and here's a breakdown of my findings: Fronts of the boxes: Backs of the boxes: The other four faces of the

  5. Platty! I'm stoked to hear you're working your way out of your gaming funk. Those plateaus suck, but sometimes it's a matter of finding the right game that snatches your attention. It's been a little bit since I've seen you post with an excited tone like the one above. Good for you!! As for me, oddly enough I found a couple half hour hiatus' over a busy couple days and sunk the total hour into Pokemon Emerald. Snatched a fossil from Mirage tower and got another gym badge. 21 hours logged at this point. This run-through is just going to be about finding a team I like and beating the g

  8. Goo aftergoo! *slurp* I'm here to let goo know about a challenge run I will be attempting in the following days. Ever wonder what slimy slick shenanigans a goo-man can get to using only a team of three slimes? These ain't no regoolar slimes either. (Or rather, they are.) As I will only be using the regular, blue variant of slime found all over Infant Isle. The drools and objectives are simple: 1. Complete the Joker games using exclusively "Slime" monsters, this means blue, teardrop shaped slimes. No behemoths, cureslimes, or king slimes either. 2. On

  10. Hello, I'm new to the Dragon Quest community and figured it wouldn't hurt to make a post. What are some of your favorite games and did it take anyone some time to get hooked? My first game was swords that I bought for the Wii and honestly I didn't like it and I thought all dragon quest games were like that because I had never played one before. When 11 came out I was very excited by what I saw and I got 11s for my switch and beat it, I then ordered the 1,2,3 switch release from play asia and as of now I've beaten 11, 1 and 2 , I'm currently playing 3 . I have already bought a copy of 4 fo

  12. Yep! Basically, when you reclass, your stats are all halved*, and you keep any spells you learned. You then start gaining stats and spells as the new class. *I think this is the right number, I could be wrong though

  13. I should add that I don't think I got very far before getting sidetracked by DQXI-S.... but I'll see if I can't put in some time later this week to close that gap a little bit. I've been looking for an excuse to pick it up again!

  15. I’ll tell you this: when I got into the main series back in 2010 (after having only played the Monsters spinoffs on Gameboy Color as a kid years before) I just went with the first ones that interested me most. Those ended up being Dragon Quest III for the Gameboy Color and Dragon Quest IV for the DS. From my experiences with games of all kinds, go with entries in a series that interest you the most. Don’t worry about whatever the most popular ones are, or the fan favorites: you go with your gut and get the game(s) that interest you. Those are the ones you’ll enjoy the most and remembe

  17. All the main games are great in their own way. My favourites are DQ4 because of the cast of characters. DQ7 for the exploration and slow burn, hangout good times. DQ10 because it's like DQ x Infinity.

  20. I got into DQ when DWM came out for the GBC. We were all playing Pokemon Red, and Blue at that time (middle school), and one of my friends got a copy of DWM. Two of us played it like crazy. I still remember being at the park, having a 2v2 battle, GoldGolem+Zoma vs GoldGolem+Baramos. He beat me because of EvilSlash. I also have a vague memory from when I was around 8. I rented some NES game, and I remember the Traveler's Gate. Pretty sure I was playing the NES version of DW2, but I didn't give it much thought at the time. Anyway, DW/DQ is probably my second favorite RPG series of all

  23. I think a few monsters have higher gold drop rates than others. Goodybags (not sure if I'm nailing the name for this DQ version) and Gold Golems come to mind. Then again, I don't think I've ever farmed gold in a DQ game so my advice may be crap.

  24. Among this year's recipients of the Japanese "Person of Cultural Merit" award is Sugiyama, the composer of almost all of the Dragon Quest games. Last year, Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario, received the award as the first person in the video game industry to be awarded last year. Of course Sugiyama isn't known just for his Dragon Quest compositions, having worked on creating songs for anime and pop music in the past as well. There does not seem to be any coverage of this year's awards in English yet. Here is the article on NHK. In the article Sugiyama is quoted as saying that he intends

  29. It's hard to say. I would consider doing a multi-forum post, see which one is getting traction, then link the others to that one and focus on posting there. Do note challenge runs tend to get very little traction outside of video feeds, and even then, generally speed runs trump everything else. So if your challenge isn't a speed run, I wouldn't expect much attention. This is true even for Final Fantasy (I did some really hard challenges in the past, and at most I'd get maybe 1 or 2 other posters, on fairly popular boards at the time). Or you have to already have a following. When Dra

  35. Not even close. It's definitely hack & scratch. Meow! Or should I say Nyan! Well, I’m already plenty used to cat puns due to Monster Hunter. The localizers work in every kind of cat pun they can when Felynes and the other cat species are involved. Cat Quest isn’t one I’m dying to check out though, so it may be a pass. Seems like it’s on sale a lot anyway.

  36. Oh, you have Shield and need the Sword exclusives? I might be able to help.... I'd have to dust off my game though, it's been a while. I haven't gotten in to the recent gens as much as some of the earlier/middle stuff.

  40. I can't recall sitting and playing a game for more than an hour for ages. Played 3 hours of Ni no Kuni 2 last night. I'm really really loving the battle system. I have a feeling that empire building is going to be my jam, although I'm still not at that point yet. Had my first skirmish battle and while it's a bit odd, it's not the crap I keep reading about in reviews. Overall I've sunk nearly 5 hours into the game and I'm really enjoying it!

  41. Welcome! The first game I played was Dragon Warrior. I was very young at the time where I didn't understand much about the game. I mostly just killed things. I also played Monsters 2 at one point but didn't play much of it. I consider my "first" Dragon Quest was VIII. I was old enough when it came out to understand and appreciate it. I really didn't become a "fan" of the series until 4, 5, and 6 came out on the DS. I haven't played many spinoffs. But I am a big fan of Builders 1 and 2. I also enjoyed Swords from the limited time I spent on that. My favorite game is VII. But XI c

  42. I played Bloodbourne for the first time today. I didn't play it that much but my initial impressions is really positive. I haven't had the chance to fight the first boss yet. Spent too much time looking at stats and getting a feel for the game. My only complaints is that finding the lanterns and switches are a pain. They blended in so damn well with the rest of the environment. I even mistaken a water pump as a lantern at one point. I am also not a huge fan of the game running at 30 FPS. It isn't that big of a deal, but it would be nice to have 60. Looking forward on playing it more.

  44. ^ I concur. This is a comprehensive look at each group of games in the series. It's entirely dependent upon your interests for what to play next. The RPGamer guide that our own @Plattym3 primarily authored gives you a thorough view of each sub-series, so you can make an informed decision.

  45. Ah yes, good old Magna! Fun fact, that's only his name when he's underground. Later on he epurts out into the overworld and his name turns into Lavna! So, if he blasted K.O. underground, he would make him "Magma-Butt", but if he blasted him above ground, then "Lava-butt would be the correct term"

  47. I'll be 33 in about a month. I was 11 when Red came to America. Mewtwo held that title for a long time because of his unrivaled power. Later replaced by Kyogre when Sapphire came out. Because Water moves were based on Special, and Kyogre's special was through the roof, Drizzle made him ridiculously strong. My favorite types are probably Fire, Psychic, and Dark. I love Charizard, Houndoom, and Espeon. I've only beaten gen 1-4 so far, and I'm currently playing Black. Favorite game so far... ... Sapphire or Platinum.
