  1. I have never been able to get into Minecraft because of the lack of clear goals, but the Builders games are some of my favorites ever. There's an incredible mix of creative exploration and building while still having enough structure to keep me close to the main path. The writing for the story in both games is also phenomenal. I highly recommend!

  2. Hey, guys. I've been a long time lurker on this site but I finally decided to post what I've created for my favorite Dragon Quest/Warrior games! I've created 2 editors to edit monsters and skills for Dragon Warrior Monsters: Cobi's Journey/Tara's Adventure for the Gameboy Color! I'm not even sure how relevant this is anymore, but I decided to post it anyway. Here's some screenshots of the programs: And here are the changes I made to Slime in game: I hope that the few of you that still play this game enjoy this program as much as I enjoyed ma

  4. Building stuff wise and collecting materials, yes. But you have clear goals for each part of the game thanks to the NPCs. Look up some gameplay from the Rimuldar section (aka part 1 of Builders 1) and you’ll see what I mean. There’s a free building mode called Terra Incognita, but you don’t have to be play that mode if you don’t want to.

  5. There’s a uniquely bizarre awkwardness exclusive to stores like Walmart and Target where you have to hunt down an associate, tell them you want a game out of the case, walk them over to it, and declare out loud to them which game you want (because silently pointing at it would give off the vibe that you’re embarrassed to be buying it). Then, they spend about 30 seconds fumbling with the case while you stand awkwardly next to them. Then, they walk you over to their register and you either get it in another case that will have to be opened later at a front end register or pay for it then and the

  12. The Nintendo eshop Black Friday sales are live! Bought a game for a whopping $2 that’s been on my wishlist for quite a while now: Heavy Burger. It’s a mash up of Data East arcade games where you play as the character from Burger Time wielding a burger firing gun in a race to get the money to the bank in Bad Dudes. Every time you reach a goal, you jump to a new arcade machine. It’s as strange as it sounds but it’s actually really fun! Here’s some gameplay of the game in action with up to 4 players.

  13. All eight gym badges have been obtained in Pokemon Sword! I was definitely expecting an ice type gym in Circhester, but was surprised to find that, for once, the gym in the snowy town was not Ice type. Go figure. It worked out better for my team's typing anyway, so I was okay with it. The last two gyms were.... underwhelming. The gym challenges up to that point had some unique puzzles that were kind of fun to navigate through, but the last two seemed to throw all of that out the window. I did have fun taking down the eighth gym leader's Dynamax Building Pokemon even though it

  16. I've recently stumbled upon a website, https://w.atwiki.jp/dq_binary, that lists the locations of several bits of data in the 8-bit and 16-bit versions of classic games, with the example below being a part of the RAM data for 5 run through a quick yandex translation. I hope this information advances Dragon Quest hacking as much as possible. 7e0300: sprite data 7e2000-7e2a9f: range to be included in the save data 7e2019-7e201b: gold on hand 7e201d: party number 7E201E:horse-drawn carriages 7E201F:how many people outside the carriage? 7e203a-7e203b: deposited gold (*1000) 7E20

  17. This was quite an emotional episode, even knowing what was coming. I think I am warming up to Zaboera's voice (really sounded wrong to me last episode). Music was on point. Voice acting was also on target. I don't recall on having any real issues with the translation this time either. The episode followed the manga pretty closely with a few lines cut (I assume for time) but nothing major. I think this was also the first episode to have flashback scenes. I am very excited for the next episode. So I ordered a number of Dai goods. Today I will post the cards from the new arcade game

  18. When I tried to load up DQMJ3Pro (and regular) with Citra today it keeps dropping to <5 fps. I am working with Citra support to figure out why, but if any of you have found a fix or know what version number you are running so that this can be fixed, I would appreciate that info. Edit: v1544 is what broke it, 1543 works. Citra Support is now aware of the issue.

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

  27. Oh, I’m right there with you for the love or hate thing! When I originally tried playing FF7, I just could not get into it at all. I tried playing the game for what it was and ignored how it’s so highly praised...but I just wasn’t enjoying it. For as narrative driven as FF became at that point, the story and characters weren’t doing it for me. Normally if the gameplay is good I won’t worry so much on narrative stuff, which was the case for Fire Emblem Fates for example, but I just wasn’t having fun playing FF7 either. Nothing clicked for me. I’m sure some would argue “Oh you had to play i

  28. Final Fantasy III: Recently received the Fire Crystal job classes of Ranger, Knight, Scholar, and Geomancer. As I learned the last time I played, Geomancer can get VERY powerful if you stick with it, so I’m fine with having one in the party again. Doing a little job level grinding before I go to the town of Tokkel so I can get my characters a little more prepared for the upcoming dungeon and boss battle. Thankfully it’s pretty easy to raise job levels thanks to the auto battle feature: just set everyone to defend, let them auto battle for 4 or 5 turns, then defeat the enemies. Being able to do

  30. 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

  31. I typically stick with English voices since that's my language of origin. I don't know enough Japanese to understand what is being said, so Japanese voice acting tends to range from "this is okay" to "this is beyond annoying to listen to". If I could actually understand what was being said, I think I'd appreciate it more. That said, I believe every game should not only ship with both English and Japanese voices, but the rest of Multi-5 as well.

  33. I would love anything on SMT, since I’m trying to get into that series! Loving the idea of adult Pokémon! as a game year 1996 would be cool! Maybe something on Mario RPG, DQ6 and Chrono coming out that year (I might be wrong about their release dates) a dedicated Chrono trigger episode would also be amazing! Maybe a side quest on best RPG series we never got in the west/the states? A best spinoffs of major franchises? thank you guys for all your hard work! That podcast is the best!

  34. If you leave the game alone on the title screen through the end of the Overture, the attract mode is seven minutes of cutscenes showing Ragnar, Alena/Kiryl/Borya, Torneko, and Maya/Meena before (?) their respective chapters begin. The DS and mobile remakes don't have this and only loop the title screen! I recorded a video since there doesn't seem to be a YouTube video of it: The general idea of each story goes like this according to Google Translate (a natural translation would be greatly appreciated!).

Pragmata from Capcom... a bit strange, reminded me of Death Stranding. Really need to see more information. I wish they would remake Breath of Fire I and II instead of this. Why is it that companies like Square Enix or Capcom have 100 millions for games like Marvel's Avengers or all the Resident Evil games that didn't sell, but they can't afford Breath of Fire remake?

I’ve had the series on the brain for the last few days, and replaying FF3 seemed like a fun idea. I really enjoyed the game more than I was expecting too like 2 or 3 years ago since I had a history of starting it but not getting far, but pushing through the part I got stopped by...I found Final Fantasy III to be one of my favorite experiences from the series, and my personal favorite of the NES/Famicom era games. With all that said, the game is still early on but I finally have

  38. Got it at Walmart for $80. The elderly gentleman who opened the case and took it out asked me (in a hushed tone like it was a big secret) if these video games were really as small as a postage stamp, becuase someone told him that recently. I confirmed that much was true. I was going to tell him what they tasted like too, but since I didn't have any first-hand knowledge of this, I passed.

  41. Got all 120 stars in Mario Galaxy and unlocked Luigi mode for my file. I...don’t want to play the game much anymore for the foreseeable future after how damn annoying the Purple Comet Coin challenges were. Geez man, I forgot how annoying some of the challenges were. I was getting very frustrated at them and the game as a whole. Definitely need to stay away from Galaxy for a long time. Haven’t gotten that genuinely mad at a game in awhile.

  43. 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.

  50. 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
