Savvy Seafarer (3/20)



  1. I'm so glad the Japanese live long lives! if any of them pass away they should have successors and plenty of ideas left behind. I think dragon quest will continue for decades, I'm not too worried
  2. My god. I didn't even realise this website had a music section. I think I'm in heaven Thanks Erdrick!
  3. Oh god. This reminds me of the time that I overslept and missed my final because I stayed up late studying for it. What f$*&ing killed me about that is that I KNEW the material. I crammed it all in the night before and then didn't even get to vomit it out onto the paper the next day. I just had to flush it. That kind of broke my spirit. The rest of the week I alternated between being angry at myself and just utterly depressed. Sent from my Galaxy Note II Funny you say that, that almost happened to me today :/ luckily I told my brother I had an exam the day before, so he woke me up about 45 minutes before it, which was just enough time to get ready and go get a taxi there(RIP $25). I did fairly well I think, except for one question. Of course it was one of the only things I didn't go over.
  4. Time to deprive myself of sleep for a week so I can pass my exams :| fun fun fun
  5. Any reason why we won't get both? I assume the script for both of them would be the same, ps4 version might have some voice acting though. We'll get at least one of them, I'm sure of it. There's no reason not to localize it really.
  6. Ps4 version for sure. I really loved the grand scale and exploring the environments in DQ8
  7. I actually really enjoy the puns. Names like cyclown are more fun than literal names like "tornado monster" for example. The dragon warrior names are too literal. Unique punny names makes the series stand out more, most of them are really well done too. The accents are great as well, the only game that might have gone too far was dq iv ds. I remember trying to understand what everyone was trying to say in ragnar's chapter. I got used to it though. Yeah the opinion that the localisation sucks is popular enough for this to be somewhat unpopular :|
  8. My 9 year old brother started playing DQH the day after I bought it. He absolutely loves it. He's been watching dragonball a lot recently so the familiar art style probably helps. He's tried to play some of my ds dragon quest games in the past too, but I don't think he has the patience for them.
  9. Oooh 18th, not bad. Being below games like Rugby world cup and NBA seems a bit worrying though since they're not very good. But then again, they are multiplatform games, and heaps of people buy sports games, so it could be a good thing. Being above mario maker and disney infinity also seems to be a nice achievement. I wish we had the numbers. If we can get over a million sold westward, or close to it, I'll be so happy.
  10. Unless you want it complete in box, the cheapest option on Amazon right now is $38.50 discs + case with no manual. This is assuming you live in the NA region. There are ways to bypass region lock without any devices. I used to to this to play JP DDR games on my NA PS1. I think we're looking at the same one. It costs $101 for me. $39 of it is postage. Maybe one day I'll see it for sale at a reasonable price
  11. Oh okay, cool. I don't know much about that game honestly. Anyway, played the first couple hours of dqh and got up to the airship. Things I really like about the game: - Artwork is stunning. I've never seen akira toriyamas creations look so good - Graphics are great - Runs really smoothly (so far) - The music (most songs only go for 30ish seconds and loop but it hasn't bothered me as much as I thought it would) - Characters are charming and funny, just like in the other dq games - Battling the monsters in real time is a cool new experience - Has enough depth and strategy to avoid being a mindless button masher Things I don't like - No multiplayer - No free roam. I know it's supposed to be like a dynasty warriors game, but a bit of exploring would be nice I'll also mention that it feels a bit easy, but not too easy. Also the story seems to be quite simple. Neither of these factors affect my enjoyment of the game enough to be negatives however. Overall, I really like the game and I'm glad I bought it. Looking forward to seeing what the sales of it are like, and if we're gonna get more games
  12. Goodluck erdrick. I've been there and done that. Keep doing what you're doing for a while, and if you know she's interested in/has feelings for you, ask her out somewhere. Worked for me. Only lasted about 6 months for a bunch of reasons though (both shy, neither of us had a jobs and still 100% dependent on parents etc). I've never been in sales or stood anywhere selling tickets or cookies, but damn, he got you good. Of course it's for charity, but what an opening line! That's exactly what I thought too. I was going to ignore him and walk off, but I didn't want to feel like a complete dick. Also, really wanted to know if he knew about DQ lol. Then we spoke a bit about games and uni, until finally it was too late to not buy something. I would feel like a complete jerk if I didn't. I think the term for this sort of thing is emotional engineering :| He got along with me really well so I pretty much couldn't say no. Or maybe he was a genuinely cool guy. I will never know.
  13. I'm guessing you meant to say never instead of ever? Because yeah, I'd rather not play the ps1 version, it looks outdated and the translation will be very different from what I'm used to (I've never played a game that uses the old names). It will still play and feel like a dragon quest game, so I would still enjoy it though. Maybe one day I'll download an emulator and play it. The cheapest I can get the game online is $100, and then there's the region lock which I'll have to get around somehow. Its simply not worth playing a physical copy.
