  1. It makes me speculate on the story now. Especially since the hints towards DQ1 (the logo is a flipped DQ1 logo, the hero is dressed in the Dragonlord's color scheme, etc etc).
  2. Just printed this thread out and dropped it off at my coworker's desk, haha. Best news.
  3. http://nichegamer.com/2017/07/28/dragon-quest-xi-echoes-elusive-age-heads-west/
  4. Sounds like something similar to the Last Ones / Oversoul system from FF13 / FF10-2. Or perhaps just something akin to shinies from Pokemon -- just rare versions of monsters to give you something to look out for while grinding.
  5. IT'S OUT GO GO GO (Damnit, my N3DS updated to 11.1 before I realized.)
  6. ... DQMTW? As for large monsters... while I agree it's not exactly what I would have done, it does add a strategic element to the game. Caravan Heart had something similar (instead of slot size, "weight") which I felt was pretty good.
  7. Had a war movie of some kind on TV in the background earlier tonight, actually... Hm. Which do you think is punchier?
  8. http://na.square-enix.com/us/blog/dragon-quest-vii-viii-3ds-are-coming-west So in their official blog post talking about Dragon Quest 7 and 8, Square Enix ended it with a hashtag we're all familiar with: #DragonQuestForTheWest That means two things: 1. They heard us. 2. Our petition helped. With that glorious realization in mind, it's time to move on to round two. Announcing: Leave No Slime Behind Dragon Quest 7 and 8 are great games and we're extremely lucky to see Nintendo and Square Enix chancing bringing them over. But they're not the only titles we're mi
  9. Aw man, I just realized that this thread is a powder keg waiting for a spark. Back to the original topic and away from the hugbox: There hasn't been much LGBI stuff in Dragon Quest. Japan's views on LGBI stuff are considerably different than ours, to the point that LGBI people in Japan consider America some sort of mecca for gay rights.
  10. WOO HOO, preemptive anti-SJWing! It's called the Galbrush Paradox. As defined elsewhere: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B320XBWCEAARjSJ.jpg
  11. I had two metal keys, actually... I guess I just started earlier than most? The story quests start to give enough XP to ding you as you use up your XP, or thereabouts. Once I hit Chapter 10 Mission 3 (which is very quick and easy to run through dungeon) I was gaining a level with the last fight before I ran out of stamina, which filled my stamina. This didn't stop until around level 33. That level up link I posted earlier has some others -- 4-5, 7-5, and 8-2 are either good XP/STA or easily traversed maps.
  12. I don't know, they're classified as bosses and I don't think you can recruit the end of dungeon bosses...
  13. The gold farming quest is the weekend's daily quest. It'll change to Metal Slimes on Monday.
  14. Ding 30. Currently stopped at 10-4 -- Al-Zorate Sands -- to grind, since one of the wikis says it's a really good Stamina/XP ratio map. http://muketsu.info/DQMsl/LEVELup.html I might actually hit 35 at this rate, haha. Edit: 32 now (50 minutes later). I think it'll peter out at 33 but at this rate I'm leveling up as fast as I can burn through my stamina.
  15. So we can't get any of the DQ games, but we sure can get a FF Spinoff that bombed in Japan because it's only like 6 hours long, eh: http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/07/30/final-fantasy-explorers-gets-western-release-date
  16. Signapore. First impressions are good. Only a few instances of odd English. Here's the rub. The localization is very, very good. It's witty, it's funny, it has alliteration. LOTS of Alliteration. I mean, a LOT of Alliteration. It reads just like one of the DS titles. Which has me thinking: ... Did the team that localized the DS games help on this? Is there an actual Western DQMSL localization inbound? The localization is just... higher quality than I expected, all around.
  17. From my NeoGAF post: Livestream is... picking a save file, I guess? That music... Apparently its 90 minutes. Will we have a thread about it (the other one was closed for some reason) or just do stuff in here. Edit: It's started! Flaming Sword... DQ8. DQ Builders. DQH2. DQMJ3. DQX. (New Expansion Time?) No mention of DQXI, I guess it's supposed to be a surprise? Nice Lady pitches to Guy in suit, producer of some sort. Switch to Dragon Quest Super Light. 1400KANJI downloads... (14 million? Nah, that can't be) Dragon Quest Monster Parade, the PC game that everyon
  18. DQXI. As for Dragon Quest of the Stars... I imagine it will be very similar to FFRK, only with a DQ theme. Stamina bar, gachapon for equipment or maybe rare maps, etc. The interesting thing is it seems to be using DQ9's graphics, which is odd...
  19. The problem with the Monsters games is that they have to overcome the Square Enix tax. It doesn't matter how cheap they are to localize, due to the massive amounts of overhead at Square Enix US they have to sell 100-200k copies just to break even. None of them are going to do that, especially since the teams at SE US don't have any idea how to localize them or market them. I once heard it explained that SE, or maybe just SE US is a A class publisher who wants to act like a AAA class international Juggernaut. It makes perfect sense that they wouldn't have an idea what to do with JRPGs or
  20. Earlier in the day he apparently talked about how he knew there was interest in the west. At the end of the events, he apparently flat out said it was coming out. His translator / handler from SE was pissed. This was witnessed by multiple people and confirmed by calls to SE EU. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  21. FF XIII-2??? Vagrant Story WAS perfect, though. Man, Squaresoft was on fire back in those days. I remember getting VS and Chrono Cross around the same time and thinking "it doesn't get any better than this". You know what? It never did get better than that. It got worse.I actually agree with XIII-2. That game was a surprising gem. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  22. I use Tenso to get Manga from Amazon.co.jp that are considered too risque to ship to the US, it'd probably work for this, too. http://www.tenso.com/en/ Tenso is a Deputy Service, that means they receive your packages and then ship them to you in the US. Considering Right-Stuf ships hentai and Japanese porn without trouble, I'm curious to know what kind of smut you get shipped to your home. Amazon won't ship anything even remotely risque to the US. It doesn't matter what -- I couldn't get Doraemon shipped to the US.
  23. Here's my thoughts. It's multi fold, so I'll just shout them out in any old order. SE JP told Se US/EU to push DQ in the West back in the DS era. They failed. Various reasons abound, but I attribute it to incompetence. They just don't know how to handle games that don't sell themselves anymore. Hell, they don't even know how to handle those, if the "Tomb Raider only sold 6 million copies, it was a sales disaster" stuff is any indication. So DQ in the west failed, mostly because they didn't do anything to push it. The things they did do was absolutely stupid. Seth Green in D
