  1. I'm starting to realize where people say they like Maribel as a character. She does have her nice moments and breaks in her tough facade, which are traits I never really noticed due to her berating comments to the protagonist. I'm still not a fan of hers due to her ragging on the protagonist throughout the game, but some of my opinions on her have changed thanks to my DQ7 replay.

      Am I seeing things here!?

    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      I can't think of a smartass response, so no, you aren't seeing things.

      Opinions change.

      Maribel a best

  2. I sometimes forgot how much I love Dragon Quest. Messing around in the early hours of DQ7 again has been a lot of fun, seeing how all the dialogue changes, how the world grows thanks to your actions...it's all coming back to me why this particular game (and franchise) is one of my favorites.

      I love that sailor in Pilchard Bay who always has a cold.

      DQ7's attention to detail is the best. It's a shame it will never be popular due to its slow pacing.

    3. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      It is slower, but unlike some other games that are similar in pace, I find myself invested in EVERY story DQ7 has to offer and don't notice any slow down. Not all of them are my favorites, such as the love troubles in the herb village, but even then there is still enough there grab my attention and care about the characters.

  3. Woo-hoo! Darkest Dungeon is coming to the Switch! I've loved playing the game on my Vita/PS4! Totally recommend this game to anyone looking for a new RPG.

      Ah, so the grinding complaints are real then. I've heard reviews mention that, but I just assumed it was reviewers only saying that because it's an RPG.

      I only ask because the PSN version I got came with the Crimson Court expansion. Haven't looked too much into it other than the new playable class that came with it.

      I don't know if the PSN version gives you the option of turning off the DLC, but I would highly recommend it if it's your first playthrough. It adds a mechanic that forces you to do the DLC area, and punishes you if you try to ignore it. 

      Also, as far as the grinding goes, (minor spoiler)

       

      Completing any level of the Darkest Dungeon (the in-game dungeon of said name, not the game itself) gives all surviving members a debuff that no longer lets them enter the Darkest Dungeon. It basically means that you need a minimum of 16 max level characters to finish the game. I've heard they've added a new difficulty that reduces the grinding somewhat, but I don't know to what extent.

    3. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      The PSN version lets you choose to make the DLC part of the game. Also it has different difficulty levels. Wasn't really sure which was which (and didn't even know they were difficulty options until later!) so I just chose the first difficulty.

      Also the Shieldbreaker DLC came out. It's not part of that, but it's a fun new class.

  4. Darkeater Midir may be the hardest superboss I've had to deal with. He hits like a truck, has tons of health, is surprisingly fast...oh, and he's a giant nightmare dragon who lives at the end of existence.

    What I have gotten myself into...

    1. ignasia

      ignasia

      Wow, he looks like a rather intense fight.

      Hmm...sure, why not.  Just remember you'll need to grow two horns on either side of your head, and adorn yourself with purple robes and a strange headdress.

      Then again, Skyrim alone makes a man a lord of Dragons, though perhaps not a DragonLord?

    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      Purple robes sound wonderful. Hopefully I don't get the weird blue skin problem the DragonLord and Hargon have...maybe green or purple instead...

  5. Happy New Year, all! Let's hope the year is full of new quests for all of us! Maybe there will even be some dragons along the way!

    Since Dark Souls III has become a new favorite, I figure it was fitting to make my new profile picture Greirat the Thief for three reasons: he's one of my favorite NPCs, he's a cool thief character (much like a certain bandit), and is a loyal friend/ally to the player character who will risk his neck to help out.

    Oh, and he's got the rockin' blue hat.

  6. I've been jamming out to the Cuphead soundtrack lately. It's easily one of my favorite soundtracks of the year, if not my #1 of the year. Kristofer Maddigan (the composer) and all the performers did a wonderful job. Definitely envokes the frantic nature of the levels and the upbeat jazzy style of classic cartoon music.

    1. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      I'd go out and get an Xbox One just to play the game. It looks like something I would absolutely love, and well, I kind of already do without even playing it! Having the soundtrack on my iPod is a good substitute.

      Anyway, I'm impressed this was Kristofer's first compositions for published works. I hope the guy goes on to do more video game music. I'd love to hear what else he can create! You can see more about his music/work in the game here:

      Cuphead is cool...yay.  PC dude...PC.  Though yeah the controller would be preferable to keyboard + mouse, but then xbox one controllers supposedly sync with your PC, and you can use it for almost any game.

    3. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      I don't like to game on PC. It's either home console or handheld console.

  7. I think Siegward of Catarina might be my new favorite SoulsBorne NPC.

  8. Merry Questmas, ya filthy animals!

  9. Been trying to 100% all the Crash Bandicoot games in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Freakin' Crash Bandicoot 1 is a rough ride to accomplish this feet. If I can, totally gonna do the Crash Bandicoot celebration dance...

    1. Erdrick The Hero

      Erdrick The Hero

      I've 105/105% Crash Bandicoot: Warped (with my first Platinum trophy, too!), and I'm sitting at 102/104% on Crash Bandicoot (while the PS1 version capped at 100%, Time Trials add 2% and the Stormy Ascent DLC adds 2%) and 100/102% on Crash Bandicoot 2. All I've got left is about half of the Time Trial Relics between Crash 1 and 2. The Time Trials are the hardest part. Good luck man!

  10. I knew I shouldn't have played the Monster Hunter World beta. Now I've got the Monster Hunter itch again. Guess I'll just have to break out Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for my 3DS.

    1. ignasia

      ignasia

      Like Pokemon, like Minecraft...even EVE Online, this is exactly why I avoid Monster Hunter games like the plague.  I'd never have time for any other experiences, especially given my uber OCDness when it comes to farming items.

    2. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      I just enjoy the thrill of the hunt and needing to keep your attention on the game. I'm glad the series isn't button mashing and requires you to learn monster movements and patterns. Makes it satisfying to kill off a beastie without taking much damage.

  11. Absolutely loving the Monster Hunter World Beta Demo on PS4! Man, I forgot how much I loved the Monster Hunter series and the thrill it has as you play! Definitely looking forward to starting the new year off right with this game when it releases on January 26!

  12. A new FromSoftware game was teased tonight...

    Please be Bloodborne 2, please be Bloodborne 2, PLEEEEEEEEEEEASE let it be Bloodborne 2...!

    1. eal

      eal

      You should give Nioh a go. It's Bloodborne in every way but asethetics. It's fuedal Japan. It's derivative but the good kind.

    2. TheKingOfTheDragovians

      TheKingOfTheDragovians

      Nioh's also more level based as opposed to Bloodborne.

    3. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      Yeah, the level by level based system is like Demon Souls. I've thought about Nioh, just haven't looked into it.

  13. Back in the 90s, I was in a very famous TV show...

    1. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      I thought about using him, but nah. I figure Big ol' Buff Pugilist from Etrian 5 will be my profile picture for the rest of the month since I'm still chugging away at Etrian 5 (currently on 28th floor post game) and have a fun one waiting for December. It'll be perfect for the Christmas season.

  14. Finally, I've reached the 5th Stratum of Etrian Odyssey V...and this place is as much of a shock as Etrian 1's 5th Stratum. It really brings into perspective just what exactly the world of these games are, and it's an aspect I love about the series because you don't expect it at all.

  15. "No one knows who thought of zombifying squirrels."

      No one knows what it's like to be the bad man. To be the sad man.

  16. "Still the reigning champion!"

  17. The treat for Halloween this year? Etrian Odyssey V's FM Synth soundtrack DLC is now up for grabs. I knew once I hit the 3rd Stratum it would be October 31st, and by gum the prediction has come true. Looking forward to downloading it and using it for my Denizens guild playthrough!

  18. The Ariadne Thread thieving squirrel from Etrian Odyssey II has a new rival in Etrian Odyssey V.....the ingredient stealing hamster! Damn rodents keep stealing from these poor adventurers!

  19. For any fans of NIS America, they are running a Vita sale right now. It's an....interesting list of games. Not my cup of tea, but I figured I'd let others know.

  20. Today's the day...the Odyssey shall continue! It's been quite the wait since the EO5 info dump back in April 2016, but it's finally releasing today in the US. Can't wait to start once it gets here in the mail!

    1. The Dog of Zahan

      I got it this afternoon via UPS and have enjoyed the 3rd floor since then.

      But is it the Odyssey Homer's?

    3. YangustheLegendaryBandit

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      @Boris - Yep, the release date for the game finally arrived. Whenever you get around to playing it, be sure to share your guild QR code in the EO Discussion thread.

  21. The marriage scene you can put Vivi and Quina through in Final Fantasy IX makes me die of laughter every time. Quina looking over at Vivi saying "I...so happy..." and then slowly walking towards him is hysterical.

  22. I really wish I had an Xbox One or a decent computer just so I could play Cuphead.

    1. Imutone

      Imutone

      At least it will always bee there waiting! Hope you get a decent PC or Xbox One soon.

    2. Erdrick The Hero

      Cuphead looks pretty cool. Too bad I spent all my spending money on a Switch and a couple Switch games.

    3. BorisTheWizard

      BorisTheWizard

      If you have a PS4, try Furi. Similar concept, but 3D instead of 2D. I've played bouth and actually prefer Furi.

  23. So one of the boss battles in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is a team of Chargin' Chucks. Not gonna lie, as someone whose first video game was Super Mario World, I really enjoyed that. Good to see Chargin' Chucks appearing in more Mario games the last few years.

  24. Since we're in the month of October, I feel it's time to use one of my gaming nightmares as my profile picture: Father Gascoigne from Bloodborne. "Beasts all over the shop.....You'll be one of them, sooner or later..."

      I want to play bloodborne and dark souls 3 but i am missing a ps4 and the games

  25. It was a lot of fun replaying Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. I was reminded why I played the game so much when growing up, and fell in love with the entire experience all over again. It's been fun, TTYD. I'll be sure to replay you again much sooner than before.

    1. Democrobot

      Democrobot

      I was actually thinking about doing a replay of it myself

    2. Neofrodo

      Neofrodo

      I'm more of a fan of the original.

       

      But that one is fun too.

       

      Mostly cause of Vivian and the Yoshi Kid.
