  1. No, you're good, I understood what you meant by "dead". I just hadn't considered DQ being dead AGAIN. I agree SQEX is bleeding money. It's just ridiculous how much of it has been caused by stupidity. They've wasted money on half finished projects, translating games but then not releasing, and then screwing the pooch on Tomb Raider and Hitman. I mean, how can you have a multimillion seller and it be "under expectations". I was hoping that Nintendo would pick up the ball like they have before though. It would seem SQEX at least thought about this at one point with all the DQ on Nintendo support. Maybe I'm way off base though. I also agree with you Erdrick. While I would LOVE to see a localization of Terry's, DQVII is the one game I would pick if forced to.
  2. I agree Terry would've sold well. I'm a bit surprised Nintendo didn't try to push it out before X and Y, especially with Nintendo trying to move more 3DS units. There's pretty much no hope for it now with X and Y incoming though. But DQ being dead? That seems extreme...I know it's either feast or famine with Dragon Quest, to the point it's becoming a repetitive cycle but dead? God I hope not.
  3. Hello fellow Dragon Quest fans! After a year long hiatus, I felt like posting on the forums again! (Mainly because I've started playing DQ recently ) I apologize for not posting, but I'm a shy type of person that tends to lurk anyways. That being said, I wanted to see if the Dragon's Den community thinks we will see DQVII at e3 this year! I personally think so, but I also thought we would see Terry's Wonderland at last years e3 (boy was I wrong about that one). This is something that's been running through my mind a lot recently and I wanted to see what intellegent thoughts and opinons others had on the subject. Man, that remake looks AWESOME! And I wasn't the biggest fan of the original to begin with. Please feel free to post your thoughts on the subject! I apologize if this has been discussed ad nauseum but I did not see any topics posted. Just one or two thoughts here or there around the forums.
  4. Beat Baramos with solo Hero in DQ3 GBC today. That was fun!

      Wow! That's cool :o What level?

      Lv. 40. Equips were Thunder Sword, Blade Armor, Dragon Shield, Ortega Helm, and Starry Ring.

  5. My apologies for the double post but I wanted to keep the DQIII info in a separate section. Your best bet for DQIII info would be shotgunnova's FAQ on GameFAQs. Also, check out the tables here at the Den for another source of useful information. It may be a little time consuming but it really isn't that hard to find what you are looking for on each game. However, I just spent the morning/midday writing down the information for my own use and I'll share for the sake of being helpful. This info comes from the Prima Dragon Warrior III (GBC) guide. This should apply for the SNES version as well, barring the differences in translation. You'll need to look elsewhere for info on the NES version. I'll hide it behind a spoiler tag so it isn't spamming everyone.
  6. Just wanted to point out you can easily get a second Water Flying Cloth/Water Robe in the NES version. Go here for details: http://www.gamefaqs....rrior-ii/cheats I can't remember if this was fixed in the SNES version, but I would assume so as it is most definitely fixed in the GBC version. Also, the Princess can equip the Magic Helmet and the Water Robe reduces fire damage.
  7. It's only free for the first 30 Auction style listings unless you have a premium/business account, or something like that. At least, I still get charged .5 cents for fixed-style format myself and I've sold a good amount of stuff now.
  8. I'm reminded of when my wife played it. She was constantly going "OH MY GAWD!" I have to admit, the ending made me tear up. I don't think I've ever wanted a Boss to burn in hell that much.
  9. Really wish I could but my PC is craptastic. I'm going to test out a friend's copy later on to make sure, but I don't think I'll be able to play it anytime soon...
  10. Wow, really? Really? As a musician let me just tell you no. Absolutely not. Do you not get how the internet works? That's...interesting. Thanks for the clarification Dwaine, I'm appalled that they would do that. Not surprised, but definitely appalled. Here I was thinking it was nice how 1UP had pushed Dragon Quest more than the other major sites. Jeez.
  11. There is a reason people get upset when you steal FAQs. They are an original creation by the author to help readers play the game better. They are no less original than movie reviews, official strategy guides, etc. Hosting FAQs without permission is theft, plain and simple. Image and file hosting can be a bit of a grey area, but not as much as some make it out to be. New creations based off in-game content such as your Starflight Express map fall into the same category as FAQs. It's theft people. He spent time and effort making it, even if it was based on in-game pixels. The only time I would say it's open to everyone would be publicly released assets or sprites/models straight from the game itself. It wouldn't be right for the Den to host DQIX apps w/o permission. Same thing applies to everyone. Another thing to consider; does this Realm of Darkness use ads? Google ads or pretty much any other ad are typically a source of income (albeit minor) for the website host. If they do, they are essentially profiting from another persons work. I'll be honest (and obvious) I haven't visited that site, nor do I plan to now that I know they are nabbing content w/o permission. As such, I wouldn't know if they do/don't. Just a point to consider.
  12. Okay, sorry about that. I didn't realize that was Baramos either. I'll go with Gracos V from DWVII.

  14. Gotta love a doctor's office that doesn't tell you they moved and then cancels your appointment. Buncha pricks.

      I had the same problem before. Sucks, dude.

  15. You can get DQ8 for 10$ these days and I've seen used PS2s as low as 40$. The system and the game together come out to being roughly the price of the game when it was released. You are missing out on a great experience. DQ8 is not only my favorite DQ, it is also the greatest RPG I've ever played. I couldn't have put it better myself. You are really missing out on a great game.
  16. Can't say I'm surprised but I sure would've loved to see Ness win.
  17. Glad to hear it. If I wake up before 7 I'll poop like, three times as much. Does that happen to anyone else? Hah! All the time Dwaine, all the time.
  18. Great videos! While I've enjoyed them all, I have to admit I died laughing at this last one. Your raging at the Cannibox and falling into the basement were especially priceless. It's good to hear you actually received your guide this time. In regards to your query in the video, I personally always use seeds on the Hero. I like doing this because he/she cannot change classes to manipulate stats/levels. That's just personal preference though. With the Pachisi Tracks this is a fairly moot point but I gathered they aren't your cup of tea in an earlier video.
  19. I'll admit I'm biased, but DQIII is still my favorite. I love being able to pool different classes spells together, as well as the focus on stats. DWVII just has too much grinding to enjoy, especially when a lot of the skills feel like fluff just to fill a slot. DQIX's system is fun, but as others have stated I'd rather the spells be carried over as well. If I'm not going to be able to use certain classes in high-end post game content, I'd rather have some use from them besides just skill point fodder. I'd like to point out that VIII's skill system had (at least to me) a strong Class system vibe going on. Granted, Jessica will never be as successful at melee as the Hero even w/ maxed Knife/Sword skillset, but it did allow for nearly the same customization that Vi and VII did. Heck, Jessica will often do more damage with her whips than spells.
  20. I'd personally bet on it being announced sometime at E3. Nintendo needs a very strong E3 presentation to ease the fears of stockholders, not to mention the 3DS is picking up enough momentum that there is bound to be a bevy of releases for it. I'd plan on seeing an official announcement for Terry's Wonderland, as well as the new Fire Emblem during Nintendo's presentation at the very least. My only concern is it's releasing in Japan less than a week from the first day of E3. There may still be issues being worked out for a localization. Who really knows for sure (besides Nintendo obviously)? I wouldn't be too worried though. It would be surprising if this doesn't get localized at all. There's a strong demand for new 3DS games, and there seems to be a nice amount of buzz about this game considering how popular the original was.
  21. My bad, I haven't faced PKJs yet. Sorry!
  22. I'm all about the Paladins baby!
  23. I'm not surprised. Blizzard had warned that might happen, even seemed to be expecting it. I would've logged in myself, but an 80kbps DL speed (Stupid rural DSL) kept that from happening.
  24. :( Nothing's a certainty till it's on store shelves. It wouldn't be the first letdown in the stateside history of the series. I'm really not trying to argue or be a jerk, just sayin'.
