  1. I keep staying up late to play DQX during Kid's Time, but losing track of time until after it's (almost) over. This is starting to tick me off.

    One moment I look at the clock and it's 10:45, and what feels like 20 minutes later it's 1:30.

  3. Why is Star Ocean priced at $20.99?

     

    Actually why does a lot of stuff on the eShop appear to be just over a nice round number like that? It's dumb. I just wanted to get a classic JRPG with my Christmas eShop card, but no, they had to price it just out of reach.

     

    Maybe I should just pirate the game and give SE the middle finger.

  5. Merry Second Day of Christmas to the Den! I FINALLY killed the Wanted Atlas from DQH2.

  6. Back from a long absence, and feels good to come back.

    YAAAAAAAAAAY - It won't likely show on front page. Kirby, Breath of Fire 2, Crystalis, and lesser games coming to Switch!

  8. I’ve been enjoying Trials of Mana more than I thought I was going too. I haven’t been able to play it very much since I started, but it’s been pretty great so far. I’m glad I can check it off the “SNES games to play,” list now.

  9. Happy Thanksgiving guys!  Much love to you all!

    ...I was bad, I participated in Black Thursday!  The day of true evil, but I snagged the last non-floor copies of Bloodstained, Builders 2, and the last Walmart copy of Sekiro...got into Walmart at 6:45 or so, and with a nearly depleted PS4 black thursday, the day of evil, stock, I managed the last copy of Sekiro.  So I now have Sekiro as well :).

    I can get the DLC packages for Builders 2 later, after I beat the game.

  10. Happy Thanksgiving, guvs! Hope everyone has a great day whenever and whoever you spend today with!

  11. @Dakhil and anyone else wondering about weight gain in the US...well, it's happening worldwide, and there's also a weight loss revolution in the US due to certain new dietary trends thanks to more people listening to doctors that actually talk about Insulin resistance.  This should peak your interest on one of three major glaring problems facing health and creating fat people (ir, omega-6, and sugar):

  14. Happy All Hallow's Eve to the Den!

  15. So Halloween is tomorrow, but my dad ran out of ripped Halloween videos on, what, Tuesday? Clearly the only thing left to do for the family is to consume the bottom of the Hallmark Christmas barrel.

  18. The video at the top of this page (https://www.dragonquest.com/ofthestars/) is EXACTLY what DQ advertising should look like. I almost cried watching it, the costumes and visual design evoke exactly what I imagined while playing the NES games as a kid.

  19. Well this is terrible news. I’ve really enjoyed the Mario & Luigi RPG series ever since Superstar Saga. I hope this won’t be the end of Mario RPGs as we know it.

  20. I haven’t been able to play it too much yet, but so far the Sega Genesis Mini is really top quality. I didn’t grow up with the Genesis, but I’m liking the game line up and the attention to detail Sega put into this thing. Definitely matches the quality of the SNES Mini.

  21. Can't wait to spend my birthday playing DQ XI S. Definitely going to try at least some of those challenge modes this time, any suggestions?

      Well, there is Sylvando's utterly borked and broken skill that uses 1000 gold to deal fixed damage (possible to learn late Act 1, and viable all the way through): Gold Rush.

      It's a hidden "?" tile in his Showmanship line, the one on the right.

      It doesn't in the PS4, though who knows, it might here.

      I've also noticed, after a bit of testing, that "Party Perishes" affects the overall rates of Talk Tripe + Shypox, both in and out of battle.

      Out of battle (Tripe + Shypox):

      16% when present, 20% when not

      In battle (Shypox + Super Shypox):

      15~16% when present, a full 25% (PS4 level) when not

      =====

      Boomerangs also seem to have a higher hit rate overall than the PS4, but seems to be further affected by Stronger Monsters.

      It reduces per each new monster hit.

      PS4: 95% -> 90% -> 80% -> 70% -> 60% ...and so on
      Switch (Normal Monsters): 100% -> 90% -> 85% -> ?
      Switch (Stronger Monsters): 100% -> 95% -> 90% -> ?

      It could be RNG, I had a string of consistent hits without Stronger Monsters towards the end of testing, so it could be a flat 100-> 95 -> 90 or 85% -> maybe 80 or 75% -> and a reduction of 10% every step/new monster hit.
