  1. Making decent progress on actually being somewhat leveled. Is there a decent place to farm the slime chocolate? I don't like using my metal keys without bringing one of those along. Also decided, in the absence of waifus, to declare DQVI itself my waifu for the purposes of picking where to spend my gems. Kinda disappointed tickets expire and can't be saved, oh well. I've got around 4 ten rolls banked up so far, haven't played multiplayer too much yet.
  2. I'm AOSKZD5849 The character's named Glaceon since Glaceon Mage unfortunately doesn't fit.
  3. Maybe so. Still dunno what I'm even gonna bother saving for though *Tries* ...Still not working. Putting the cursor in the edit box and it still defaulted to the new post box. Couldn't seem to get it to copy from the new post box to the edit box either.... I really miss my BBCode view, it was so much easier to use than this
  4. First statement: ...Wow, thinking about it, you're right. Aside from the safety net thing. Dangit Nasu. I feel like the menu complaint might fall under the barrier of entry thing, even if I didn't think about it when I wrote that. I'm pretty used to the menus by now so they don't bother me at all, but I can see how they'd be confusing when you start. DQotS is definitely confusing me with the menus right now. @Brother Jaybird Yeah, I get that, it just struck me as a bit odd. Usually stuff is just there to fill in gacha rates (like CEs in Fate/Grand Order, for example), while the characters are the main attraction. It just doesn't seem as marketable to me, I guess, compared to characters. (Couldn't figure out how to put proper new quotes in an edit. Curse you, new IP.Board! Now I miss old IP.Board again!)
  5. In FGO the earliest parts of it are honestly the worst from both a writing and gameplay standpoint. The game had a really rocky start and basically survived on brand name alone for a while. I wasn't around for that part in JP, but in NA which I started at launch I put the game down for a while for the same reason as you, before picking it up again, randomly rolling Waver during the first CBC and getting hooked since then. It did get much better though, the writing is generally really good starting in America-ish (some people might claim it took until Camelot), gameplay can be pretty samey but it did get much more challenging starting in Camelot which helped, and more basic old skills are generally being phased out (even on older servants since Rank ups are a thing). Honestly my main complaints about it are it is kinda slow to play sometimes, the entry barrier can be kinda high, and there's still no real safety net mechanic. Other than that though, it's easily my favorite gacha.
  6. If there's anything Fate/Grand Order did really well, it was create a recipe for a long lasting gacha game. Since they sell everything on waifuness and the low rates for the most part, there's barely any powercreep (still some, but not as much as other gachas I've played, heck Waver's one of the best units in the game to this day and he's a launch character, though he did get a massive kit overhaul early out since he originally sucked). It also stands on its own really well if you haven't gone through anything else in the franchise, since like half the cast are original to it and rely on FGO itself for their characterization, which it almost always offered upon that character's release (unless you're Europa I guess, I'm not sure what they thinking with that one). So yeah I agree, gachas need waifus/husbandos. It's less fun without em, because otherwise you're just selling chunks of stats. Which is, to put it bluntly, boring.
  7. The one that stuck out to me was talking about DQXI like we got the 3DS version. Way to rub that one in.
  8. Thinking Cap is the best waifu, obviously. It has a deep backstory, a loveable personality, and a cute look! What's not to like? Well, I guess it saved me from rerolling, and makes it easier to save currency for a banner I really want, since I usually only roll hard in gachas if I want the waifu/husbando on offer for their character... but now I'm not sure how to define a banner I really want, because I don't roll for gameplay! How does one play a gacha without waifus?! *Glaceon.exe broke*
  9. I decided to give the game a shot despite not really looking into much it, but wow that's a lot of initial assets. So far it doesn't really seem to be what I expected out of a DQ gacha. Equipment as the primary thing to get out of the gacha isn't really what I expected, since I usually play gacha games as character collectors in things I like... And DQ doesn't exactly lack in potential for that. Oh well, still only on the tutorial.
  10. doesn't Harry pre-character development also count? If that's the case, the trope would have gotten its start in the series with V. *hasn't watched the movie, and therefore has nothing else to say*

    I was really bored earlier, so I decided to spend way longer than I probably should have making a meme based on a Fire Emblem meme I saw several years ago.

      LOL, well I'll say hipster doesn't quite come to mind when thinking of Dragon Quest 3.  They tend to prefer sitting around, drinking coffee, and talking about life and issues with the world in post-modernist terms.

      Hmm...I guess wanderlust and curiosity at the cost of ones life.  You've even got spelunking and deep cave diving near the end, with a jump straight into a giant void.

      The hipster comment was on DQII.  Partially completely serious, partially a reference to the Fire Emblem meme that inspired this which called FE2 fans "either a pretentious hipster or a Japanese child in 1992."  FE2 is in a sort of similar place to DQII in terms of how it's looked at historically, as this weird sort of odd duck that's a thing but tends to get overshadowed by the first and third games.  Most people can't stomach playing FE2 these days, since it's slow, the UI is insanely dated, and can be grindy.

      DQIII was the "you greatly respect this game's..." and the A Link to the Past stuff.  

      ...Maybe I really should line up all this stuff better.

      Yeah, that might help.  That makes more sense in context.  HIpsters definitely have a thing for...I guess authentically vintage is the right term.  While still being kind of raw and simplistic, like a fresh new coffee shop where they're forced to purchase random assorted older furniture and cushions, and place them in simpler arrangements, prior to developing a customer base and updating to newer and fresher aesthetics.

  12. Reverse image searching that second image just got "18th century tea." ...in other words, I don't get it, could you explain the joke?
  13. Calling it Tact instead of Tactics or something like that bothers me far more than it probably should. It's three letters SE.
  14. So, last week of these. The Spoiler character is Calasmos Anyway, these three. Thoughts on them? For me: Mordegon Spoiler DQXI Hero
  15. Just one more thread after this one, probably. Anyway, uh, these guys. I can't think of much to snark about them without spoiling something. So uh, thoughts on them? For me: Hendrick Jasper Gemma
