Nokturnus' Nightmare

Nokturnus' Nightmare (14/20)



  1. The mid-90's were a good time. The only thing lacking about it was localized Dragon Quest!
  2. I had no idea the price of this game had gone up so much.
  3. I never finished Prime 2. After the masterwork that was Prime 1, it honestly just didn't hit the same. I felt like it floundered a lot and was sadly just boring. Maybe it got better after where I stopped. I heard Prime 3 was much better. I own it, but have yet to play it after all these years.
  4. DQ7 actually has my favorite DQ soundtrack. My favorite song is Echo of Horns Throughout the Castle. I literally can not think of a song to pick for least favorite. An honorable mention to the song Feverish, which is only in the PS1 version of the game. It's such a fun piano track.
  5. Perhaps look into AM2R. It's a fan-made remake of Metroid 2 in the style of Zero Mission. For the most part, it's actually very well made.
  6. The only way to get updates about DQM1+2 was to hope Tom mentioned it on his Twitter. This meant I pretty much checked it every couple of days. During the course of watching these updates I would see him get excited as he wrapped up a translation and then upset once people started to nitpick and gripe over NOTHING. Frankly, he did a great job translating the projects he was part of. The cycle got fresh when Goemon 3's translation was finished and released. The negative feedback was too much and Tom felt he needed to take refuge from the internet.

  7. I gave up my remaining hope when TranslatorTom was ran off the internet. On the plus side, he appears to have return to the internet in some fashion and the romhacking aerie is online again. On the minus side it has basically been forever and there has been zero news. I am not sure if anyone has seen Kingcom.
  8. Thank you so much! Thank you for using your time and knowledge on an often thankless pursuit. Your contribution to the fandom is appreciated.
  9. You own the largest independent DQ fansite outside of Japan... Does Mrs. Woodus roll her eyes at you frequently?
  10. Welcome to the Den. Enjoy Dragon Quest, it's a great series to get into. However, be careful not to drown yourself in it as a coping mechanism. Grieving sucks, but it's part of healing. Consider seeing a counselor if you are struggling with it. Hope you are well in time!
  11. Belmont's Revenge is a bit better than The Adventure, but none of the three GB Castlevania games are much worth playing. Music is definitely the high point of all three entries. Castlevania: The Adventure's WiiWare remake, Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth, was pretty nifty though. Was hoping for more Castlevania remakes, but it was not meant to be. As far as the starting over bit goes, yeah, it's unforgiving... but, the game's pretty short.
  12. I thought the hints in the PS1 version were pretty obvious with both the hero's parentage and Aira's lineage. Not hit-you-over-the-head-with-a-hammer obvious, but like an-intentional-stomp-on-the-foot. Everyone's going to have their own experience though.
