  1. For what it's worth "shocking revelation" in previews from Japan generally doesn't mean much. It'll probably be a new character or something.
  2. Look at DQI compared to DQVIII. Maybe it's just a beginning of a beautiful series. That's what I mean. It feels like something that can only get better as it moves forward if they keep building off the foundation it has. The game itself though struck me as above average though. Not bad but not remarkable either.. You can kinda feel Dragon Quest IX vibes from it at times, too.
  3. It's a stretch, to be sure. But when you're in a fanbase where they are desperate for something to grab onto, it happens. Hope is hope. It's not impossible, just very unlikely.
  4. My younger brother seems to be coming down with something, and I have two big interviews coming up... uh oh. I just recovered from something last week, too!
  5. DQ Heroes does already have a name, but it's not punny enough for western Dragon Quest standards While I am joking, I also realize that I am possible right and become sad. It could be Spelunker Z's western name due to Spelunky. Maybe they don't want to mix names. Unlikely but who knows. I've given up on us getting DQ7. I'm hoping we can at least get Heroes.
  6. It's alright. It feels like it could be the foundation of something a lot bigger and better.
  7. I could never do the Amiibo thing. It just seems so frustrating to deal with Nintendo's supply hijinks. However, I would like a Ness for the sole reason of it being official Earthbound/Mother 2 merchandise. But yeah, not gonna deal with the headache.

  9. Using NoScript with Firefox goes a long way in keeping yourself safe while browsing the internet. The only downside is you have to specify what scripts you DO want to run because it prevents ALL of them, and sites don't display properly until you do that. Its worth it though. I used AVGFree for a while too, seemed to work well enough.
  10. That's creepy. I've never had that asked of me in any interviews I've had. The dude made me hella uncomfortable. Adding salt to the wound is the only offer I got so far was from that guy and he was aggressive, probably because he really liked my GPA. I told him I needed a day, but he wasn't having it. Anyway, another interesting story... a place wants me to purchase a 50$ ebook and read it before taking me in for an interview. Uh what. Maybe if I was offered the job I'd consider it but I'm gonna spend that money for something I'd otherwise never use just for a chance to interview. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  11. Oh boy job search stories.... I had a guy ask me if I wanted to get married and what gender I was planning on getting married too. Pretty sure you're not allowed to do that. Needless to say I wasn't interested in that place anymore.
  12. I'd like to, but money's tight. Whenever I land a job I'll probably pick one up.
  13. I'll hang around. My disappearance was largely due to going back to school/working. Now I'm looking for work though and have been exhausted traveling all around Maryland for interviews and I still have one next week which is pretty far. So yeah, just exhausted.
  14. Yeah, that's about right. I've been playing MH since the PSP games. I first tried the demo, hated it. Picked a game up on sale, tried it... felt OK about it, but didn't play it much. Then one day I put some time into it and killed my first large monster and from that moment I was hooked. Can't wait for MH4. Looks like Gamestop charged me for the Collector's Edition already...
  15. Holey Heroes huh? Well, as long as it comes out here.
  16. Um, life hit me like a ton of bricks. Decided to drop by because I miss this place.
  17. Well that I sadly have to agree with. I said it elsewhere, Type-0 was the victim of being on the wrong platform at the wrong time. But there's still a part of me that thinks that just dropping it altogether is reflective of the new look of Square Enix outside Japan. Big HD AAA JRPGs (ie. FF13 spinoffs...) or Eidos games only. My hope with this particular game is that as it is such an overhaul, that they may look at it as a better venture for them. But the passing of the previous two 3DS games does not bode well. I wasn't expecting Rocket Slime, but I though Terry's Wonderland hand a chance.
  18. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tn96MYCpenM Do we really know that? Honestly I just keep forcing myself to not get excited about this game because I have a feeling we're gonna get burned. I remember 2ish years ago when we all said "Square Enix will always release Final Fantasy!", but now they've reached a point where they didn't release a Final Fantasy when it was 90% completed. Yes, this is in reference to FF Type-0. Regardless of whether or not it was a PSP game at the wrong time, they decided not to release a Final Fantasy when it was virtually complete. The other issue at hand here is this is a massive game, quite possibly the biggest of the series. Add to that party-chat, and you've got a gargantuan translation undertaking. According to something Aenea mentioned in a DQ7 thread on NeoGAF, DQ6 and J2 did not sell very well. Will Nintendo even be willing to take a stab at this? Now, in our favor... this game looks closer to IX than the other remakes did. And IX was successful, so maybe that merit can help. I hope it does.
  19. Don't see how Pokemans will impact this. Pokemon Black and White became a MASSIVE success on the DS after DQ9 DQMJ1 and 2. Nothing will steal Pokemon's thunder. If this doesn't make it over, it won't be Pokemon's fault. It will Nintendo's peculiar localization habits (Fire Emblem 12, Xenoblade, Last Story, etc). Nintendo seems serious about making DQ relevant now and it seems to be working. So perhaps we'll see this over here. And I'll have to borrow my brother's 3DS to play it D:
  20. No, you have to let them be killed by enemies. It supposedly says that they like you so much that they'd die for your cause, increasing your rank with that faction.
  21. If you want Cressida, you'll find the 3 heart system a pain in the butt. In essence, to recruit Cressida, you must have high reputation with the Galgastani clan... the best way to do this is to have recruited Galgastan units die. You have to have them get killed 3 times for this to work so... yeah, it just creates more work.
  22. Law route in Tactics Ogre is by far the best route to go first. Ozma and Ravness are among the best characters in the game. Ozma is probably THE best. She is literally invincible with the... I think it's called Ivory Tower skill. She can't die. Just use it after every action, send her up front to build up TP again and use it again. Easy. Then you use the post-game gimmick to go back and get the neutral/chaos characters. Have fun recruiting Cressida, total grindfest. Deneb's also a grindfest. But at least Deneb's quest is easy enough. As far as the FFT/TO debate. FFT = better character customizations (subskills from other classes), TO = all around bigger game. Story and everything else is about on par for both games.
  23. Considering I'm a straight guy with no real fetish what-so-ever...no, I really didn't... What does that have to do with anything? Sounds like someone needs to hit up Pixiv. Namely the DQ5 section. After that, you'll be ready for the internet.
  24. Did someone say manga Gracos? I think I heard someone say manga Gracos.
