  1. Hi all! Just wanted to let you all know that I have finally finished editing my play throughs for my YouTube channel of the Switch Ports of DQ 1 thru 3. If anyone is curious what they were like then I hope you enjoy these videos! Overall I think they were worthwhile entries to get the classic games to a popular system with the Switch and raise DQ awareness for the US which I absolutely approve of. However, of the multitude of ports available for all 3 games, these were definitely the weakest. Enjoy!

  2. New key visual, spoiler'd just in case. Also getting a new opening song in October (can't remember the exact date, can't find where I read it originally EDIT: It was 2nd October). Guessing the series is ramping up to the end? Still quite a way off though, I'm guessing? Wasn't expecting them to start the current fight so soon and all at once at that. Hoping the other characters gets some wins and it's not just the Day and Hyunckel show.

  4. Just because you don't want a leather purse backpack doesn't mean you have to ruin it for the rest of us. [emoji12] You stick to your European Carryall, I'm upgrading!

  6. These are not "Betas and Prototypes" at all. It's literally three copies of the first revision of Dragon Warrior 1, one having a damaged NES header, plus the second revision of the game.

  7. It's a full action RPG. You get in a battle & it reminds me of musou combat a bit. It's actually very fun. The little monsters in the game add a little fun strategy component. Excellent! I’m looking forward to it. (Though to be honest I didn’t mind the original combat system as much as others)

  9. Hello, everyone! I'm new here and this is my first post. I played the DS versions DQVI with a fan Chinese translation nine years ago. And now I am replaying the iOS official localization version. Underkeep the dungeon left a shadow in my heart when I first played. This time the darkness is not a thing, but the touchscreen is really a matter. Benefit from the eight direction virtual controller and pseudo-3D graphics, I fell into black holes over a dozen times. Finally, the last sunroof was opened... Metal slimes are great but only appeared once; Arrghgoyles and their Sizz are my regular friends. But at least, the lighting problem was solved, and Milly remained 8 MP to cast Evac...

  12. Collection of SaGa: Finished the Edo/Japan themed world and have made my way to the sky world. The Edo world gave me some trouble as the enemy difficulty really increased and I wasn’t really sure how to move the story on. After looking up some things about the game I worked on gaining some stats for my human and esper party members, got some better equipment, and saved the day! What’s funny about this whole world was the fact that bananas are apparently an illegal item. Even the game calls out how stupid that was, but it sounds like they had to make the change for the English release due to it being drugs of some kind on the original Japanese script. Definitely a weird change, but hey, Gameboy games seemed to have a weird thing with fruit! (Points to Link’s Awakening and the Pineapple in the trade quest saving a man’s life.) Before going into the sky world, I’m trying my luck at the Nasty Dungeon. You have to enter it to find the one piece of Magi in the ND World. From what I was reading the other day it’s entirely optional but grants some good equipment and stay boosting potions, so might as well do it to gain some new stuff!

  14. The touch screen controls drive me bonkers too. For the narrow passages and rotating floors, I've found it best to lightly tap.

  16. Welcome, Jack! For the most part, the mobile controls are what they are and I was just find with them (although I played on a full iPad), but I get that they didn't work too well on small turns like you're needing there. Hey, welcome to the Den! It's our own little slice of the Internet.

  18. From the Heliodor dungeon and on it has been mostly a cake-walk. I just got hung up on Gyldygga. I had to restart once because I wasn't paying attention to the battle closely enough, and I farmed exp. with LMS in the ruins of Dundrasil. I was stoked to beat the Black Drak in the Heliodor Dungeon, as that and Great Draks are main-stays for me in any DQM game. I followed the suggested route of going through re-collecting my party members, vs. the first play-through where I tried to search every corner of the world I could before moving on. I thought I was having a great time at the monster casino, then realized it was rigged. I even kept track of my JACKPOTS and such for a while before remembering that is what the game was tricking me to do. I realized I forgot a bunch of stuff so some of the surprises were really surprises. the last thing I did was make it through the cut-scene of the realization of Veronica's sacrifice. That has been a couple of weeks now. My job is now a commute where I stay two hours away from my family for a couple days, then come home for a night in the middle of the week, then drive back up and finish out the week. My wife was able to get me a PS5(!!) and so that has been taking up most of my time with Yakuza: Like a Dragon. So far it's awesome and I love the DQ references!

  19. Truly important troll trivia! You need microscope to see this hat. Reminds me of how trolls in Heroes Of Might And Magic III (they appear in addon as neutrals) have actual ham for a club. Just, a ham.

  20. Life goes on. I’ve grown, found new music to listen to, gotten my hair cut, broke into the stock market and became a multi-millionaire but lost it all because of a sneaky leprechaun…. You know, the usual.

  21. I think halfway through ALL boss battles became that for me. [obligatory: this was the 2nd worst battle system I ever played after FF12]

  22. The other day I finally defeated Zoma and earned my username. Just VI, VIII, and the expansions for X left! Oh, and XI's post game.
