  1. 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

  2. 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

  5. I'm so much of a sucker that I've actually managed to beat the Champion's Time for the Dark Cup on Easy today! I know I've only beat the Champion's Time by 1 second, but I don't care. F**k horse race accolades and horse races.

  7. I wrote a HUGE something for RPGamer. Had a lot of help with the formatting, but did 90% of the copy. I feel like every day for a month I kept adding another game and another game and another game... https://rpgamer.com/2020/10/the-dragon-quest-series-where-to-start/

  8. Hey, just a quick update, since it's been a hot minute. Progress has been slow, but steady. A number of basic mechanics have been implemented so far, including: - The basic JRPG setup (such as movement and saving to multiple files) - Monster Recruiting, and the ability to have more than 1 copy of a monster - Difficulty of recruiting a monster goes up corresponding to how many of that monster you currently own - A main team, sub team, and a "Ranch" for storing extra monsters - Small, Medium, and Large monster sizes (although I'm not entirely sure if I'm going to use sizes) -

  12. So I took the non pro version translation & inject it to the pro version because I wanted to play it. The result is partial translation of dqmj3pro. Still need testing, I couldnt modify the font, so it's taken directly from the non pro patch which has less glyph than the pro version. So I dont know if it'll break somewhere. dqmj3p patch: https://mega.nz/folder/8tkG1Tgb#WzEFO-JmytVXPkPGW0dnOA It would be great if anyone who knew japanese can help translating the rest of new monsters/skills.

  17. 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

  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

  21. I think I'm there myself . After 11 I had to see how it got to where it is today and so far I've like both 1 and 2 . Wish 2 had a little more direction but I looked online for help and found the guides here which helped when I was stuck. Also listening to all the DQ podcasts have given me some great insight to the series and the fan base is AMAZING!

  24. The cast of RPGamer's weekly news podcast spent some time talking about the article today: https://rpgamer.com/2020/10/rpg-cast-episode-560-kmart-breath-of-the-wild/ Skip ahead to 56:20 to hear about the article. They called me the Dragon Quest Master. HAHA, far from it. I've just used all the information that @Woodus has had y'alls help in compiling for decades! Thanks a bunch to all Denizens past and present for helping get information together & talking DQ with me for the past 16+ years!

  26. As Dai is broadcast I expect there will be a number of interviews and articles. I will attempt to translate them for the English speaking community. Generally I will aim to keep character and place names as shown in the official translation (I might have to go back an fix some of them after the show airs to know these though). Spells and monster names I am not bothering to look up the English equivalent at this time. Newtype November 2020

  29. I really must apologize for being so lazy with the ones I haven't scanned yet... Scanning the manuals in the quality I want is kind of tedious. You can see how sporadically I've uploaded them if you view the folder as a list. In any case, since the last update, I also uploaded the manuals for DQ XI 3DS, Monsters 2 3DS, Itadaki Street DS, and Torneko no Daibouken on Super Famicom. Still next to my printer: V on DS, IX, and Joker 1 and 2. Coming in the mail around next week: Joker 2 Pro. I had to get creative with scanning the 3DS ones since they're narrowly too big for my printer to s

  31. I used to be all about those marathon sessions, and I still absolutely am when I can be. However, it created a bit of an issue when I only wanted to play marathon sessions since I usually get my free time in smaller chunks (30 to 90 minutes). I found that when I allowed myself to play in smaller chunks, instead of limiting myself to long sessions, I actually got a LOT more gaming in and was able to finish games quicker. This also affects the type of games I play. Usually I look for games with a save anywhere feature, and if that isn't present then I try to at least fi

  32. I have updated the forums to the latest version and had to purchase a new theme to go with it. If you have any suggestions for the "background" images for the forums let me know (I just left the ones that came with the theme for now). Clear your cache in your browser if you have any trouble to see if that helps.

These are props, no actual usable weapons, though. For now... :V

  35. Thank you, DQM was my childhood game and one of my favs in the dragonquest series. Update: Trying to get a tech demo out there. I'm currently experiementing with the art style(chosing between retro gameboy color style or more defined 2D art). There will be an update soon.

  40. Welcome to the Dragon's Den, a site for Dragon Quest fans. May I ask what brought you here today? Maybe you should introduce yourself in the Introductions area. I’ve been gone for a few weeks and a little stressed with work. This Platty rant brought a huge smile to face!! Thank you! And further, I enjoy playing most of the remakes these days. Especially due to the portability. DS, 3DS, and Switch

  43. I'm going to [emoji2772] raise my hand and comment on this. First, Final Fantasy is basically the [emoji83]. It's ushered in everything that's wrong with the gaming world and world in general. Let's take a look, shall we? Final Fantasy 1-6 were fine to good to OK. Final Fantasy 7 is where things went really wrong. The world had to see polygons. Bad polygons. Horrible polygons. Think of all the peoples in there late 30s and 40s right now that wear glasses. A lot of them played FF7 when they were younger. That direct correlation is enough to condem the series as demon spawn.
