    Hey everyone! Similarly to what I'm doing with Dragon Quest XI, I'm finally getting around to editing my initial play through of Dragon Builders 2 and figured I'd post it here as well in case anyone was interested. Also, just like DQ11, don't worry, I won't be spamming replies to the chain every time a new video is posted. But if you're curious about the play through, all videos will be located in the spoilers section below. And if you like what you see, feel free to like, comment, and subscribe! (gotta have that shameless plugging! ).

    Hope this is the right place for it, but I made some Dragon Quest outfits! You can save these to your custom designs once you've unlocked the Able Sisters. You can also search my creator ID to see all outfits: MA-3446-4789-8332

    I've been getting stupid luck with my lucky chests. Got Erdrick's Sword one week and then Sword of Kings the next. I promptly destroyed both to extract the skills for my Battle God Sword. Really enjoying this game so far.

    Joker 2 Pro: I believe he took over the throne of the sky kingdom or whatever from the Sanguinis. Terry 3D: Haven't played it, so I don't know. DQM2 3D: It's just some sort of sealed evil that some legendary heroes defeated in the past. In Joker 3 Pro, I skipped the post-game from the original, so I can't speak to that. Joker 3 Pro: Once again, way back in the past, there was a war between the good and bad guys; Madyraja was the leader of the latter. These games and "complex stories" do not go together.

    Hey guys, been a while~ Anyways, I found this old 1989 Nintendo power that had an article of Dragon Warrior with old Nintendo Power art. I looked on the main site, but didn't see the pages anywhere. I already have all of the pages scanned if you need all of the images. Here's two images as an example, the cover of the nintendo power, and one of the pages with the art.

    I'm waiting (hopefully) for The Legend of Zelda collection to come to the Nintendo Switch next year since next year's the 35th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda series.

    We're fine. We're just across the water from NYC, in West New York, NJ. My office shut down over 2 weeks ago and I've been working from home. The biggest challenge has been avoiding my 3 year old. Cuomo deployed a medical frigate to the Javitt's Center today, a giant red-cross barge that's supposed to house 1,000 hospital beds. That should help with the local hospital's over-capacity. My wife is due with our second child in June. Should be interesting. She's giving birth in the local Jersey hospital here where they setup the quarantine. We're both a little worried about that--even though we know the quarantine is isolated from the birthing ward.

    Long time no see! Quite a few years ago I created an app to assist players with the Lucky Panel game in DQVII. I came across the source code the other day so I put it up on github to make sure I wouldn't lose it. The app itself is actually hosted here, but it's an older version. You can grab the latest version and/or view the code here: https://github.com/cain05/DQVIILuckyPanel/releases. Note that it's based on the PSX version, but it's still more or less applicable to the 3DS version. I may update the app in the future, but there's no immediate plans to do so. You'll need to have at least a java 1.8 runtime environment installed in order to run it. Cheers.

    I saw this topic and came here to post Descendants of Erdrick links, only to realize I did that 2 years ago. With Amanda's permission, we took clips from their DW cover on the Advent album for the intro and outro themes for the DQ Slime Time podcast.

    A lot of your ideas are good (full-disclaimer: I've wanted in Morrie in Heroes 3 myself), but you may want to discuss them on the Wants and Wishes thread we've already got.

    I don't feel bad when they come in, everyone else is set up for a food combo, and they choose bread. Then when everyone is spamming "Go for a combo meal" the person doesn't change and readies themselves. So I do the same. I'll boot them if I'm the host because it's my stamina I'm using.

    Guess what, Jay? I'm a dum-dum. I went home last night and saw that my party was Lv27, not 17. I mis-remembered. I played for a while and got to the top of the mountain. Party is Lv30 now. Fighting all of those Powie Yowies really got me some levels.

    Hey all....Been away for a while. Used to have a web page with scans of all of these cards (including all promos and secret-rares). Translated ~200 of them and the rules. This was circa 2012-2014... before we had phone apps that could insta-translate. Should be a lot easier now! (wow, I feel old). Web page and domain are long gone... but I still have everything saved off on my old computer from back then. If there was significant interest, I can dust it off sometime.

    Incidentally, I once compiled a list of the events of the Japanese version. I think it's almost exhastive. It covers from the release date until Nov 2018. Unfortunately it's written in Japanese, and the Japanese event names I think will provide little help for those who are not familiar with Japanese DQ games, but it won't hurt... You can find it here. (It's in my Japanese blog site, of which topics are DQ9 and Stars.)

    I decided to get the 2.0 content pack for Blazblue Cross Tag Battle since it’s on sale right now. 9 new characters, new songs and a new stage, and a new story mode. I haven’t played the game in several months, so it took a bit to get used to the game again, but I forgot how fun the game could be. It’s an easy game to learn but there is plenty you can do with how the combo system works. 8 of the new characters are fun to play as, but the 9th one....the mother#$*!ing Blitztank...I love this thing. I think I finally found my character for this game aside from Ragna. Blitztank was such a bizarre announcement back when the 2.0 update was first made, but damn, it’s fun to play as. Definitely controls differently from the other characters, but it has the same potential as the other characters combo wise. It sucks it has no special character interactions though, but (tank noises) makes up for it. And look at what I can make with this tank!

    Honestly... I love this and don't want it to end. It's the best thing that has happened to me since my daughter's birth. I am getting paid to stay at home and take care of a lot of things that have been neglected for too long. I am getting time to play games. I am getting time to do online school work. I am getting time to spend with my significant other. Most importantly, I am getting time to spend with my child. I really couldn't be happier.

    I need some really jolly vibes lately so I went back to the game that brought me so much happiness in my teenage years. I resubbed to Runescape and have been playing it quite a bit. I love that game so much, if I'm being honest it's my favorite game ever but I never think about it anymore. It's been perfect.

    I don't have time for it now, but I've had an itch to replay DQ7PS1 for a while now. When I get around to it, I'll try to remember to snag these. I've never completed the Monster Park, though.

    My least favorite parts of the game are the secret zones you can access in Delfino Plaza (that #$*!ing pachinko board and the poison river that takes ages to get to can both #$*! off) and finding all of the blue coins. I like looking for them, but when you get to the point of missing like 2 or 3 in a world it becomes difficult to finish off finding them all.

    When transferring from DQM2 3DS, I noticed similar things. I believe you're capped in rank, and it also depends on what skill sets they have; some will transfer, some won't. I tried using this to get some fancy skills in Pro from DQM2 3DS but it wouldn't let me. It's somewhat inconsistent.

    Same! The traffic has gotten lighter, but there are still plenty of people out on the road, and work is only marginally slower. It’s on the same level as during the summer break when families go on vacation to Cape Cod or something. The list of essential businesses include liquor stores and gun shops. Basically every place but retail stores that don’t sell food or pharmaceuticals are closed. You can also go on hikes and take walks and ride your bike. What was the point of this?

    Anybody visited Squirril Station yet? I don't really like it. One of the games is just Rock, Paper, Scissors with a double or nothing extra, and the other game is a bit less luck based, but threatens to eat your cash if things don't work out right, and it takes so long to get anywhere. And the prices at the Pressie Counter are ridiculously high. I don't even want to think how long it'll take to amass that amount of coins. The game doesn't even want you to buy your fortune, since you can't trade gold for coins if you have 3000 coins.

    I briefly started the demo for the Trials of Mana remake this morning. Game visually looks ok, the voice acting is absolutely awful (and not in a funny bad way either), but the music is nice and the combat and controls/gameplay is fun. The orchestral take on the main theme at the start screen was excellent. I think I’ll stick with the SNES version that’s part of the Collection of Mana. Maybe down the road when the remake inevitably gets lowered in price I’ll pick up then.

    I'm 46 and will be married for 19 years as of May. I played the original DQ in the late 80s not long after it came out. It and Ultima IV were two of the first RPG games I've played. I'm as home with an RPG game as I am a sports game as a I am with a football or at my backyard firing range with my firearms. I can wear either camouflage or a suit depending on the circumstances. People have varying interests and I don't judge a book by its cover.

    Unfortunately, pre-ordering Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the only way you can play Animal Crossing: New Horizons on release date. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is literally sold out everywhere, and the earliest date I've seen for deliveries is next week. No, I'm not buying Animal Crossing: New Horizons digitally since I hate digital games with a passion. (That means when video games becomes digital only, I'm exiting playing future video games.) Thank you Target for f***ing me over with your f***ing lies. People are probably going to give me s*** for this, because "it's only a f***ing video game". And I'm not going to lie, I deserve it.

    This game has some of the most fatal flaws you can commit in a rhythm game, and they’re ones I’ve never seen happen before. First, we all know Senran Kagura is a pervy series, so you can expect clothes coming off. And Bon Appetit! presents its gameplay as a cooking battle, where two girls compete to have the best dish. There are two short sections of a song, which will be interrupted by your food being rated against your opponent’s dish, and if you succeed, her clothes will be damaged. There’s a pause in the gameplay so this is all well and good. However, if you succeed during the first two sections, in the middle of the third part, if you succeed in hitting a heart-shaped note, the visuals on the screen will change to your opponent’s T&A shoved in your face...while you’re trying to focus on hitting the notes at the bottom of the screen. This is extra pointless because you’re “rewarded” by getting to gawk at this girl after the song is done. It just distracts you. Now, going back to the fact that this is a cooking battle, it appears these songs are character specific. So if I want to play a specific song, I have to remember which girl it’s associated with and pick her as an opponent instead of selecting a song... It’s not that big of a deal because these songs are like grey paste in that none really stand out, but to someone who might be really into this music, this seems like a needless headache.

    You can't unfortunately. The main story shouldn't take more than a few hours if playing optimally, fortunately; breed a Balzak and you just massacre everything.

    Yeah. I've seen a few Reddit posts where people are like, "HOW MUCH LONGER DO I HAVE" I usually suggest they seek out other games in the future.

    Good news: you actually unlock terrain tools ONLY for more water! You either get river water, ocean water, or water water. The last one is the hardest to unlock as you have to fully upgrade your house and obtain the legendary island builder badge, but once you earn it you can destroy the entire island in one fell swoop and live within the confines of a watery wonderland! Too much water? More like too much fun!!!

    Yes. It's still a DQ game and therefore inherently awesome. However, it is heavily flawed and one of my least favorite in the series. The imbalanced difficulty including Rhone's monsters with unblockable death spells made it more of a random chance of success, which ultimately makes for a less fun experience. There is less quality music compositions in this game than in the others (including the walking theme featuring all three party members, which unfortunately has since become the main menu and victory music for Quest of the Stars.) A few quality exceptions stand out for music in this game, the castle theme (Chateau) and the cave theme (Fright in Dungeon).

    I don't think you're outside the norm...nor do I think that quarantining for two weeks is drastic. What is drastic is the hoarding and general panic by the mass public.

    I slayed the final boss in Tokyo Mirage Sessions. Interesting story about why it took so long. I was slightly underleveled going into the boss, so it was clear I needed to level grind. Boss fights in this game require you to maintain the momentum, otherwise you’re playing defense until you eventually have a bad turn and are wiped out. The game balances this out by giving you Duo Arts, skills that activate at random during a Session. These will oftentimes give you the opportunity to get the momentum back since a lot of them give you huge boosts along with a second round of Sessions. Maybe it was just me, but I couldn’t get a single Duo Art to trigger at any point during my battles with the final boss, including the last one. So I’d lose momentum a few turns in and be dominated in three turns. I spent all night yesterday trying to boost my party, but the problem is, you get a lot of EXP from battles, but they take a bit of time. And what you get slowly helps you level up less and less. So. I paid $2 for the DLC dungeon that expedites the process and gives you huge amounts of EXP in a short amount of time. Sessions net you Tomes, two of which for each party member will level them up, meaning 14 total for everyone to level up. The enemies you fight gradually get stronger as well and you can’t save inside the dungeon, so the game encourages you not to stick around too long. I bumped my party up by 20 levels, which turned the final boss from an insurmountable challenge (I couldn’t even get to his second stage) to a total joke. He couldn’t knock a single party member out once. I honestly probably could’ve handled him with just 7 or so levels, but I didn’t want to take a chance. Go ahead. You may now take away my True Gamer™️ card.

    Thanks, Jay! I've been able to beat the mini bosses I've had to do so far, but those Drakes are really taking it out of my hands from all the excessive button mashing. I've done all the side quests available to me, so I don't get how I'm still ahead of the curve. Maybe I'll do the dimensional dungeons some more to get a few levels.
