  1. During the past half year of lockdown, I've gotten into importing Japanese games, including several boxed DQ games. Besides getting them for my DQ collection, I scanned most of their manuals and uploaded them to a dummy Google Drive folder (I don't want to put them on my Google account with my real name): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1EvblbX9BAQVFQlzUBwstvBMFDKvhx6b3?usp=sharing Right now, it has manual scans for DQ IV and VII on PS1, Slime Morimori/Rocket Slime 3 on 3DS, and Monsters 1, Cobi, and Tara on GBC. I had contributed a scan for Slime Morimori on GBA to here some time ago, but I noticed there was apparently dirt on the scanning area for that upload. I included a better-quality, rescanned version and the first version in the Drive folder for the sake of comparison. I'm also looking to, at some point, scan the manuals for Torneko no Daibouken on Super Famicom and a bunch of DS games: Monsters Joker 1 and 2, DQ V, DQ IX, and Itadaki Street DS. I also got DQ XI and Monsters 2 on 3DS, both of which have a manual "leaflet" instead of a booklet like Slime Morimori 3.
  2. I already own it on Switch.
  3. I had just about completely ignored PC gaming my whole life until I made a Steam account a month and a half ago. What changed my mind? I saw NiGHTS into Dreams, Jet Set Radio, and later Shenmue I & II on sale, and I also found out I could use a Switch Pro Controller for Steam. As much as I like those games, I'd really love to get some JRPGs from Steam. Any particular recommendations for someone who knows very little about the platform?
  4. I noticed that the Den's page for Slime Morimori didn't have a PDF of its manual. Would anyone be interested in taking a look at it and possibly translating parts of it? Slime Morimori Manual Scan.pdf
  5. Sorry for the late reply, but I'm glad to hear you liked it! Those two moments were lucky enough for me to put my live reaction in the video!
  6. There's a bunch of videos on YouTube about self-imposed video game challenges like "Can you beat Pokemon Emerald with only Mudkip" or "Can you beat Super Mario 3D World without jumping?" I noticed that Dragon Quest didn't have one but got a good idea for one when a friend was playing DQ II for the first time. I'll admit that the final result below isn't perfect, but let me know what you think!
  7. Hi, I created an account here just under five years ago and used to be active until about two years ago. Well, inactive besides briefly logging in every now and then to update my DQ collection list on my profile. I'd like to come back to a more laid-back environment for Dragon Quest fans. I'm glad to see some familiar names here on the forums, and I hope to participate more than I used to back then!
  8. Sorry I haven't responded in a bit. Not sure why that was happening on my end, as the next time I tried one or two days ago, it was working fine. I probably should have restarted my browser or something before posting about it, so sorry for the inconvenience.
  9. If you go to the main site and click on any one of the lists of Music and Sounds for a certain title, you'll go to the right link, but the page will only display the first page of MP3s for the DQ I NES soundtrack. Also, if you click on the numbers in "Page(s): 1 2 3 [...]", it will go to the correct link with the right offset for DQ I NES, but again will only show the first page.
  10. How much stuff can you squash in to a single-cycle? Surprisingly, it's actually possible to beat the final boss in the first cycle after learning the Song of Time without performing any glitches. It's very difficult as you need Epona to access Great Bay and Ikana Canyon, but you can only learn Epona's Song at Romani Ranch before 6 PM on day 1. That requires some sequence breaking, and you still have to beat all four temples. Without glitches, it's only possible on the Nintendo 64 version since the Inverted Song of Time slows time to a third on N64, but only to a half on 3DS.
  11. For the past few years, I've played Luigi's Mansion around Halloween while dressed up as Mario, and I joke about playing it as going on a journey of self-discovery in my brother's mansion. I also play Majora's Mask all the way through in one three-day cycle. I don't really watch Halloween movies, but I'm thinking of rewatching the first Hitchcock film I ever saw, Psycho.
  12. I just bought a CIB copy of Golden Sun for $30! But according to PriceCharting, that price seems typical.

      Golden Sun is the spiritual successor to one of my under-rated gems on the PS1. Beyond the Beyond.


      I like the series alot.


      Just wish the 3rd game in the series was better.

    2. BorisTheWizard


      I'm still bitter about Dark Dawn. They had a bajillion years to give the series closure, but they decided instead to make it end on a cliffhanger despite not knowing if they'd ever be given funding for the 4th (and presumably final) entry.

  13. It only took me a decade or so, but I finally got all superstars in Mario Superstar Baseball last night. Glad I no longer have to deal with booted balls, clamber, laser beam throws, or hitting music blocks in Peach's Garden.

    1. YangustheLegendaryBandit


      Wow. Congrats on completing that goal! I tried getting as many of the superstars as I could in that game, but I just couldn't figure out how to do a few things.


      Fine work, But Thou Must.


    2. But Thou Must

      But Thou Must

      Thanks, Yangus! Yeah, Baby Mario, Dixie and Toadette were my final three superstars last night. When I hit the music block, Peach got a triple play on me, ha ha.


      Now I just need 9999 on Barrel Batter (I got around 9300 once last night) and the last three MVPs on Exhibition.

  14. I don't know of too many DQ fan covers myself, but one channel I found a couple years ago was that of hyadain (Wikipedia page). He's done covers of several other game series, but most of his DQ covers are of IV. There are subbed videos of his work on YouTube: Ragnar and Healie (Ch. 1 overworld) A Musical of Chapter 2 (Ch. 2 overworld) Royal Straight Flush (casino theme) Torneko's Song (Ch. 3 overworld, town) Feelings for Cynthia (Ch. 5 overworld; Homeland) Journey to Tomorrow (the comments say it's a remix of Hairspray's "You Can't Stop the Beat!")
