  1. I am trying to play thru the as much of the main story as I can again on Bluestacks and record videos of it all as well for posterity

  2. Thank you! That's definitely what I was going for when I first started... oh my, that's about two years ago, time sure flies I'm really glad I have the opportunity to share it with the DQ community. Rivals may be ending soon, but the memories will remain as long as everything the game offered to the players is well preserved! Unfortunately that's a bit tricky with the dubbing work, but at least all the artworks (and heck I love what they did with the artstyle) will be available to anyone

  4. Hey Dragon Quest lovers, I would like to share with you my new homemade video: What if The Legend of Zelda was an RPG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYw2_d3_8PY It's a mashup with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past & Dragon Quest. Cheers, Nabil

  6. I started playing the Japanese version of Stars as soon as they announced Global version was going down. The 2nd and 3rd seasons (so planets) are available as soon as you beat Marquis de Leon in the main storyline, which quite early on. It's a shame honestly, cause the space government looked to cool in the art one can find around. I'd definitely going to screenshot every line of dialog and try review it on the French wiki too. Already started doing it with the first season. Beating the story and being able to review it chapter per chapter is a blessing. Playing Japanese 1s

  7. Season 2 was going to be one of the next things released before we got the announcement that the game was shutting down.... I believe the JP version has two other story planets in addition to Brullia, so that was where the next story segment would likely take us. A screenshot retelling of season 1 would be awesome! Maybe we can even add it to the Den main site as a memory of the time we did have with the game.

  8. Haha. That asterisk holder would definitely fit right in with the series. Most characters you meet are either going mad or are already. I have to say (and I’ll spoiler this just to be safe):

  9. In retrospect, I agree with your qualms about exploration. I didn’t much notice it at the time, but it was truly underwhelming if my memory serves me adequately. On a positive note, I was ecstatic to read an update in this log! I’ve always wanted to log my play in a game but never bucked down and did it. I guess I’m afraid I’ll forget to share important details lol. Can’t wait to read the next update!

  10. Well, we began. My wife and I started DQX on the Switch. Turns out she's the first Amanda ( アマンダ) in the DQX world. Naturally the brother is named after me and I turned out to be a dufus that burns good beans with shitty alchemy. Oh joy. Once we set up a JP SE account and get some Yen cards or the like I hope to meet up online. Might be awhile, and take getting used to, but I think this'll be a great time that is LONG overdue.

  12. lol glad I didn’t do this. With the first two games fully completed (okay, I’m halfway done with the last route in the second game), I did some research into the last game, Wintertide Miracles, and uh, the chronology of these games are a bit of a mess. The first game has you just go through the five routes available, nice and easy. The second game offers an extra 2-3 hour mini story for each route that continues the narrative from where they ended in the first game. However, the second game also includes a story that is meant to be placed right before the point at which the routes split o

  13. I've now sunk 46 hours into Dragon Quest Monsters 2 the past 15 days or so. I beat the main story and am now conflicted if I just just go crazy breeding (haha, like I haven't already) or just keep going because honestly I'm blowing through bosses on auto without healing basically. I'm about 5 minutes in to SaGa Frontier, playing as Red. I need to get this going this week as I'm supposed to write a paragraph about this for a feature at RPGamer. Theatrhythm Dragon Quest is going well. I talked about this in the DQ Music Slime Time Episode 036 thread. I've finished all of DQI and DQII music on

  14. Alright, I just beat Sol Dothradeth (hoarding gems for revival made it possible). The whole Season 2 thing...I have no more go to marks and the chick asked me to stop the Space Government from her book. Either season 2 is Japanese exclusive content or the "other worlds" are the various event dungeons (Gaius referred to one of the events as visiting another planet after all). Anyway, I think it will be no problem screen shotting all the replay scenes and weaving the into something readable. This game us lucky it has a good storyline, else I would have gone mad hopping all over the dun

  15. The final chapter for Adventure Mode should be released around the end of the month! The game staff didn't really go into details about this, but the did mention this new addition will serve as the conclusion of the single-player experience and I fully expect them to add some sort of final boss, considering it was hinted at since the very first chapter

  16. I was planning on giving a more detailed log to play while playing the game, but I just kept playing the game in small sessions and felt like it wasn't worth posting about 1 hour of gameplay each time. Then I just forgot to post about it. Oops. Either way, I completed Grandia 2. In terms of story and characters, I really don't have much to say about it. Only that it was serviceable. The story did pick up towards the end, but the rest of the game just felt "okay". I didn't really care much for the characters this time around either. The original Grandia was far stronger with characters

  19. Got to the start of chapter 3. Screw that forest dungeon you have to go through before you reach the land of Rimedhal. One major nitpick I have is with the cutscenes at the end of each chapter. They keep introducing these new characters who work for the Lord Commander of Hologard, but you don’t actually learn a thing about them. It’s just a very brief cutscene, they say something about what you just experienced in the chapter or that you obtained the Crystal, and that’s it. If these guys are supposed to be the next big bad ensemble like the Eternia top forces, I need to see more of them a

  21. I remember Gaius calling the Erick trilogy event (or the Zenith Dragon event) another planet. So by planet you mean that you can spin 2 other planets under your fingers before reviving Earth at the end? And this all happens without defeating Sol Dethradoth? It happens after you take out the Battracian boss? I used QooApp and now have the Japanese version. I intend to start in my spare time. I sunk 92 hours into global over a 2 week span, so it's break time for me! Edit: Erdrick (dumb auto correct).

  25. Knowing it's going down was bad for my OCD. Thank God for OCD. All the mysteries are now solved. I know who Dethdaroth is, I know that the moon was once the planet Madria, I know that Madria was originally called Planet Earth, I know that the Space Government rules all the universe. I know I used about 1500 plus gems to revive and beat Sol Dethradoth. What I don't know is if the continuation of the story is merely one playing other worlds. And I never set foot on Balzath Continent. I wonder if in the Japanese version if you actually take down the Space Government.

  26. Well,I wouldn't say it's bad,just not very innovative. If you played any of the New Super Mario games,you have basically played all of them. I'd still say they are quality games,just a bit bland and repetitive. It's kind of like eating a decent pizza without any toppings; yeah it's pretty good, very filling and tasty,but only because it's pizza (which is naturally good). You'd probably want some toppings on it but there's really nothing there. With that said, I haven't played any New Super Marios since the Wii U released,so I'm enjoying it more than I expected.

  29. On a new, very stupid quest to play every Nintendo published 3DS game. As a way to not consider this wasted time,I'll probably do a little fanart for each and compile my thoughts about all of them in a 10 hour video. The list is 5 pages long and has a bunch of RPGs so I don't expect to be done with it for a few years. Right now I'm play New Super Mario Bros 2,which I could give all my thoughts about after playing it for 10 minutes but eh I'll probably complete it

  30. I had the game downloaded on my phone for quite a long time when it was first released and I think only played it maybe once or twice. The problem is I already play a few other games on my phone and Stars just couldn't hook me in the same way. About a month or so ago whenever the year anniversary was going on, I figured I would give it a shot and did play for a few days and then the shutdown announcement happened... so I figured I would just save myself the time and delete the app. It is a huge bummer because I knew people in my DQ friend group who really loved the game and played regularly, b

  34. Happy Easter! In this much belated installment, I develop more affection for the party now that it isn't as stupid. So the game now has a couple of minigames available, the horse races, the target shooting, and the casino. I tried my hand at an entry level horse race and scraped by with my severely overburdened laptop, but I knew better than to try again after Sylvando blew me out of the water. (I have it on good authority that he *is* beatable, but I wonder if doing so would change the storyline any. I doubt it). The Gallopolitan letters of transit allow us to leave the burning des

  35. Reached the end of chapter 2 in Bravely Default 2. Got the Ranger, Red Mage, Shieldmaster, AND Pictomancer asterisks today. This part of the game has way too many dungeons back to back if you ask me. What I definitely wasn’t expecting was the horrifying reveal of the Pictomancer asterisk user and...well, I won’t say anything else. It was just something direction and story telling wise I wasn’t expecting. I’m not trying to build it up or anything, but it was one of those moments where I said “Holy #$*!,” out loud.

  42. I put a solid 24 hours into this game in the past 7 days. Been breeding like crazy and I've settled into ranking in the 300s in the global rankings and got myself plenty of good teammates. Still love my montner and I've bred him up so he's always kept in my top 8. Finally got the ingredients to make a couple King Cureslimes on my way to hopefully making a Metal Kaiser Slime as I crawl towards the end of the game. Typically I have a Metal King in all my final parties in DWM games, but I don't think that'll happen this time. Good replacement! Just finished off the Ice World, so although there

  44. Well of course I walk out the door and monster breeding opens up. Had to win a small tournament first, but my 2 lamp dude who hit 3 times each did great. Then I started finding all these keys. Got a challenge map key to earn 50g, wasn't too hard & got some nice monsters. Then there was a key I earned by catching 10 F-ranked monsters. Let to a place with only F-ranked monsters. Got in a battle not thinking anything of it and tried to get another Tree Slime, mistakenly thinking I'd bred mine. Holy cow, I caught it at a 3.3% chance! It was... Level 20! And my guys are all level 10. [emoji7]
