  1. What is this "perhaps"? I still have an SNES hooked up to my TV and it's way older than 10 years, unless you are implying that everyone's DS's are going to inexplicably die on a world-wide scale within the next 10 years. Furthermore, 3DS can play DS games, so you don't even need a DS. Seriously, have any of you never gone and purchased an older game off eBay before? Some of them can be cheap, but more niche games tend to be a bit more on the pricey side, ESPECIALLY if they are sealed.
  2. No, a cult classic DS game is NOT going to be seriously 50 dollars sealed in 10 years. Do you not know how the collector's market work?
  3. One of the big franchises that helped the PSP in Japan was Monster Hunter, and now that is flocking to the 3DS as well. With both DQ and MH with Nintendo currently, Sony is going to do something really good just to stay afloat in Japan.
  4. I don't want to correct you, but in my opinion I wrote pages worth of examples. My entire main point was that I think the translation should cut down on the accents and go back to a translation like we saw on games like Dragon Warrior III on the GBC or Dragon Quest VIII on the PS2. Dragon Quest IV seems to have done this aside from a few examples, so hopefully that will continue. Though they could still cut back on the name changes. I'm assuming you mean Dragon Quest VI, not IV. If so, then yeah I liked VI's localization even if it did apparently skimp on some stuff. I would like them (Plus Alpha) to continue polishing up on the localization rather than completely rebuild it from the ground up. I almost consider DQIV and V as experiments in that regard, the former on accents and the latter on puns. DQIX seemed to be far more polished and in line with VIII. Chrono Trigger is one thing as it is another JRPG, but mentioning Dragon Ball might also work in a negative impact. I know people who absolutely hate Dragon Ball and are avid gamers, and the mere attachment of the name could drive people like that away. But, there are lots of games that do this. Ace Attorney is one of my favorite series, and they change a LOT in the localization. What's surprising is that the fanbase really, really love the localization. It's a shame Capcom can't seem to return the love.
  5. Discussion is all in good fun. Saying things like IV, V, and Swords are the worst localizations ever isn't. But these discussions from what I've seen don't ever break new ground. I haven't really seen anyone bring any deep or meaningful topics to light, at least whenever I see these topics focused on the localization. I don't see people suggesting ways to honestly improve the current localization. Those guys from Plus Alpha do check out these forums last I knew, so I'm certain that they do read this stuff. This should be an obvious heads-up for people that if you have an honest-to-goodness suggestion, then suggest it! Just don't try to make them bend over backwards for you, because it isn't gonna happen. Calm down, I didn't tell you to accept it and be happy. I was telling people that that's what I did, and for that I am happy.
  6. I can't believe how many people still complain about the localization after all these years. I used to be one of those people, who absolutely did not like the fact they were changing names and replacing them with puns. And while I still don't particularly care for the puns, I've learned to just deal with it, since I doubt SE is going to change the localization style again for all 10 people who demand it. I'm a much happier gamer now when I play Dragon Quest.
  7. It's not unusual for a star in commercials to actually enjoy the products that they are representing. A similar example: Robin Williams (and his daughter, Zelda Williams) have been in recent Legend of Zelda commercials, which they both claim to be fans of. I still laugh at that one line Robin says in the commercial: "I've been playing Zelda before you were even born!"
  8. I found the ending of DQIV to be very sad; almost depressing. Note I am talking about the ORIGINAL ending, not the bonus ending that was added into the remakes. At the very end of the game, you find out that Psaro was simply being used by Aamon, who plotted Rose's death, and you are forced to watch him become a monstrosity that you have to put a stop to. There was no "Rose comes back to life and Psaro is saved from himself" scenario. Rose dies. Psaro dies. When I first beat the game, I honestly didn't feel like I "won" anything.
  9. Recently started playing Wild Arms 5 again. Also I got Person 3 Portable, which is the first SMT game I've ever played. It's pretty good.
  10. Heck yeah, Golden Sun! I beat the second game myself a couple weeks ago.
  11. I've currently beaten and am replaying Oath in Felghana. Ys has pretty much absorbed my internet life over the past couple months. x_x
  12. You mean you haven't always called yourself DQ5r!? YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, TOM-SERVO!
  13. Damn that sucks. I don't think I can give you that badge though. We had a chat about it a while back and decided not to extend the deadline since even hinting at such resulted in a flood of requests for old badges. Good to see you got your copy though. Hopefully you will notice the topics and grab badges for the DQVI and Joker 2 Contests when they come out. Most likely not. I haven't been checking the forum as often as I have the past few weeks, and I usually tend to miss the contest/tournament topics in the process (due to the sheer amount of boards).
  14. Ahhh! I never even noticed this topic! Can I still get a badge? I've had DQIX since Day 1. http://i53.tinypic.com/14kz1nd.jpg ;______________________;
  15. I beat SO2, and now I am playing Monster Hunter Tri! Addicting game, I was tried the online for the first time last night with Naoshi and did some quests lol.
