  1. 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:
  2. Since it would be on 3DS, and a massive game, I doubt it would be much more than a port. Don't think there's much to worry about there. And if it is more than a port and a complete remake... well, we'll find out in 2023 when it comes out!
  3. Not going to happen. That's good for you and everyone else who played it already. Keep in mind the fandom has grown significantly in size since then.
  4. http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=453058 It's probably not FF7. Remember, DQ follows a pattern. With every new entry comes a remake. 6 was with 9, so with 10 comes 7. So it adds up. If this rumor materializes at all, it's likely to be DQ7. It appears this person correctly "leaked" Monster Hunter Tri-G for the 3DS, so it could be legit. Guess we'll see.
  5. Probably Mario because sweet lord just look at some of the things the Sonic fandom spawns.
  6. Pretty cool. And the idea of an animu related radio station is a completely alien concept to me, unless it's a local talk show taking potshots at a local con D: and dangit Mireia your avie is as hypnotizing as ever!
  7. 100$ to get crushingly depressed? What a rip, you can do that for free! Seriously that game tried WAY to hard to be depressing. Oops, wrong thread. I'm out.
  8. And there goes every website ever. I don't see this passing, with or without our help.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. You said the economy was never going to get better. Could happen, might not. We don't know. Kind of a bad topic since politics will flare up. So yeah, best we move on. I'm still annoyed I have to wait until January to start school. Meh.
  13. ...You really think everything is gonna be alright and we can all go eat some fried chicken? It's what you make of it. Is it always good news? Heck no. Will there be bumps? Yes. You shouldn't dwell on that though. Negative thinking, doomsaying, etc... it's just counter-intuitive. How are you helping to change things when you are also being as negative as you blame the world for being? Not saying "don't be negative at all" either, just keep it to where it has to be. Most of you in this thread are very young still. Don't get into this nasty groove of looking at all things with tinted glasses.
  14. Such a doomsayer. Negative thinking like that doesn't help!
  15. You'll be fine, assuming the economy doesn't somehow get WORSE than it is now at that point. And believe me you'll want to go to college. I regret not going to university in the first place. Oh well, at least with my grades and memberships of the other college I went to I get in "easy". I will however suggest staying out of IT unless you are a) REALLY good at programming/ database design/ web development or 2) are a technophile anyway, and don't mind keep track of every single tech update. The latter point there is actually something I forgot to add about the annoyances of IT field. You know that old joke where you buy a computer, and on the way out of the store, you see a billboard for something that just made your purchase obsolete? Same thing with IT education. When you learn it, chances are there's something to replace it on the way, something ELSE you have to educate yourself for. I was there during the Office/Database XP/Vista transfer, what a mess that was, they completely changed all of their software for no reason. We had to relearn all the quirks of the Vista versions of the software instead of focusing on getting things done.
  16. Most of the bad experiences with (community) college (now I'm going to a university...) were all in the IT Department, and honestly one of the reasons I got out of the field. I'm not sure what it is, but most of the instructors are bad. I had two really good IT instructors, and 3 bad ones. The bad ones were all the same, they expected you to know the content already and were dumbfounded when you weren't following... one outright even refused to give any advice at all. I attribute this to most IT students being that "know it all computer"-guy (who are also a pain in the ass to deal with), and teachers figuring they are just there to get the paperwork. On that note, one of the best teachers I had couldn't lecture properly because a stereotypical Linux-nerd kept interjecting on almost EVERYTHING he said. adfafdsafdsf Depends on what it's in. Speaking from experience, if it's an IT degree, you can pretty much forget it. They want experience over degrees, or a Bachelors AND experience. Not pretty. Sent my resume out like twice a week, got NO responses. Not one. One of them even had a recommendation from the vice-president of the school's IT department, didn't hear a thing back from them. Ridiculous. The only calls I ever got were to sell insurance and retirement homes in northern Virginia, not even keeping me in Maryland. Pay by commission too... you don't sell, you get nothing. Out of gas? Oh well, enjoy your new Virginia home. I've been out of work for almost a year now, went through a serious bout of depression, kicked my own ass out of it, and decided to make a change. Hence, going to a university to become a teacher (bachelors in secondary education) like I always wanted to do. Kids'll always need their edumacations, so I'll get something sooner or later. Besides, there's field work as part of the program to cover the experience angle too. Why the hell did I just spill my guts like this? Oh well, now you know a bit more about me
  17. You guys need to make the best of these years, yo. And this is from someone who spent every morning groaning about having to go to school. It may not happen immediately, but eventually you're gonna look back and miss those days. So make the best of it and don't end up with regrets like a certain someone... As for that certain someone... I wish I could go to school this semester, but sadly Fall was filled before I could get the application in so I have to wait for January now. Going to university to be a teacher, my "dream" job. ... and planning to make the best of my time there! Feels like a new start.
  18. 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.
  19. Did someone say manga Gracos? I think I heard someone say manga Gracos.
  20. XSEED is pretty rad. They're totally like Working Designs. Except you know, without a certain someone... Sorry, his fiasco of butthurt on NeoGAF during the Lunar PSP release was just silly.
  21. Yeah and these TitS are big. Prologue runs about 7-10 hours according to people playing it.
  22. Those games, while still playable, were a notorious wreck of localization. Namco Bandai at work, I suppose. These games are being done by XSEED now. XSEED, while small, does projects that are labors of love for them, so they turn out very well.
  23. Female Psaro I believe is based off that one girl who always is at DQ events in Japan cosplaying as him. Decided to toss her into the card game, I guess. Pretty sure her photo's been posted on the board before... if not I'll post that too D:
