  1. Edit: Figured out the answer to my old question. So now I'll just say: Thanks a lot for working this all out, everyone. I didn't think I'd end up getting to play 3 Pro in English!
  2. I'm definitely not a fan. I'm confident saying I genuinely dislike VII. It has aged much worse than IV-VI, and as someone who pretty much played the series in order up through VI, VII was a major disappointment for me. The characters lacking the depth of VI's robust and compelling cast, the further distancing from the series' high fantasy roots, and the horrible polygonal models after the great spritework of the prior titles turned me right off. Definitely a big disappointment for me. I'm disappointed that you consider anyone who dislikes FFVII a bigot; I certainly am not one. Respecting disse
  3. Of course. Torneko is one of my favorite DQ characters, and I'm a fan of all of the Torneko games as well as Mystery Dungeon games in general.
  4. X never had an English release, no. Terry no Wonderland is the name for both the Japanese version of Dragon Quest Monsters 1 on the GB/C as well as its remake on the 3DS. Iru to Ruka no Fushigi na Fushigi na Kagi is the name of the 3DS remake of Dragon Quest Monsters 2, also originally on the GB/C.
  5. I'll keep an eye out for these monsters. Thanks for the list. I really hope the Bou monsters are in, since they're my favorites. Watabou should at least be in -- he's essentially the mascot of DQM for crying out loud.
  6. I was able to get my dream team in Iru to Ruka: Watabou, Warubou, Kakurenbou/Kagebou, and Puchibou/Petitbou. Hopefully those are all in Joker 3.
  7. Really glad to see some great first impressions. I always hold off on demos for games I know I'm buying so my hype doesn't reach critical mass. Can't wait for my copy to arrive next week! Really excited about being able to make our own palette swaps of monsters, I had no idea that that's a new feature. Do we have any word on how many monsters are in this one? I'm a bit nervous it'll be less than Iru to Ruka.
  8. This has surely already been covered somewhere, but how do I update SL after the most recent maintenance? I haven't played in a few days and now I apparently need to download an update from the Play Store, which obviously doesn't work outside of SEA.
  9. Ideally, I'd recommend buying the mobile version and playing the PS2 or DS version. They have their share of differences, but it really comes down to console/PC versus portable, and that's entirely your preference.
  10. Does he have a chance to join on any of the three difficulty levels or just the highest?
  11. So I've been spending plenty of my earned gems in the Super Tombola since I started playing. I was able to do the ten spins at once deal. Today I got a letter which said "Compensation for Super Tombola D rank roll" or something to that effect and I got 2100 gems. What was that for? AFAIK the Super Tombola says you can get rank Ds, so I don't think I'm being rewarded for their mistake. Does anyone know what caused this?
  12. That's great, haha. For whatever reason I never got a special key today. All I see is the scrapyard. Anyone know why that might be?
  13. Oh right, this topic was originally about something completely different.
  14. This part made no sense to me. A text-heavy turn-based RPG is centered around... text. It is not like, say, Tales, or some other action RPG to where yes, there's a lot of enjoyable gameplay even if you can't read the text. Without text, DQ is... pointless. It needs it. Otherwise, there's no story, no battles aside from random numbers that random sequences of symbols seem to cause. There's no substance. My comparison to written media was spot-on. I am sorry you missed the point. It's not like DQ is a TV show or something to where you can at least gauge emotions by how the actors look and sou
  15. What'd you do besides make good use of your metal key? I've been playing a ton and used my metal key but I'm only like level 24. Lots of story quests?
  16. A prequel to I and II perhaps. III being a prequel *and* the last part of the Loto trilogy makes it slightly confusing.
  17. Thank you for the info, Plattym3. But I'm still not quite sure what you mean when you say that there's a special quest everyday with egg monsters, because I don't seen any special quests, aside from the three gold farming quests and the scrapyard. Where is the daily quest you are talking about? Also, looking at the notification for the Super Tombola, does the entire pool of monsters available in it change weekly, or just the S-rank monsters? What about the Lite Tombola?
  18. Thanks for the post. I thought as much about the key. Seems a bit too OP. I'm not even sure how to properly "spend" those metal monsters since I'm still pretty much using the same party since about level 5. <_< Am I right about the pal points though? Drop 'em in the Tombola the moment I get them?
  19. OK, let's break this down bit by bit. Your logic leaps are getting a bit too slippery here. What you or any of the other pro-import people are saying is that owning Japanese poetry or novels would be "fun" too, despite it being 100% pointless to anybody who doesn't understand the language. This is exactly what we are saying, though with regard to DQ and not other media. This is not your own personal, solipsistic world. I'm sorry that I sound rude in saying this, but I can't think of a better way to get the point across. You are in no position to decide what is fun for anyone be
