  1. I'm so much of a sucker that I've actually managed to beat the Champion's Time for the Dark Cup on Easy today! I know I've only beat the Champion's Time by 1 second, but I don't care. F**k horse race accolades and horse races.
  2. I certainly believe there's a possibility for Dragon Quest XII to be a timed exclusive for these reasons. Dragon Quest VIII was exclusive to the PlayStation 2 for a little over 9 years in Japan and North America and a little over 8 years for Europe and Oceania before Square Enix announced that Dragon Quest VIII was going to be ported to Android and iOS and before Square Enix announced that Dragon Quest VIII was coming to Nintendo 3DS. I don't believe that Sony paid for Dragon Quest VIII to be exclusive to the PlayStation 2. But I've seen Sony become really aggressive when it comes to time
  3. I don't think it's just that. I remember when I was actively avoiding any Dragon Quest XI media to avoid getting spoiled (when I pre-ordered the Steam version), I didn't really come across any ads for Dragon Quest XI (except for maybe a couple of times). I don't know if it's because I was actively searching for Dragon Quest XI S news since I've finished act 2 of Dragon Quest XI on Steam, but I remember seeing more people outside of the Dragon Quest fanbase talking about Dragon Quest XI S when Nintendo marketed Dragon Quest XI S than when Square Enix marketed Dragon Quest XI. And I th
  4. I would say Dragon Quest is analogous to Nintendo consoles like how Final Fantasy is analogous to PlayStation consoles since all the mainline Dragon Quest games are released on Nintendo consoles. And so far, I feel like Nintendo has been more aggressive in marketing Dragon Quest than Square Enix has (I hope that changes with Dragon Quest XII).
  5. The initial trailer for Dragon Quest XI S during the first Nintendo Direct of 2019 did mention at the end that Dragon Quest XI S was launching exclusively on Nintendo Switch on autumn 2019, which suggested that Nintendo did pay for timed exclusivity for Dragon Quest XI S. Square Enix probably put Dragon Quest XI S for Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass considering Dragon Quest XI S pretty much bombed in sales in Japan and in the West. And Square Enix probably wanted to recoup costs for optimising Dragon Quest XI S for Nintendo Switch. I have no intentions for buying Dragon Quest XI S on PC
  6. I hope that Dragon Quest XII will be released for all platforms at the same time instead of having fragmented releases like with Dragon Quest XI. But of course, this is Square Enix we're talking about. So I really don't have much hope. And please no timed exclusivity for Dragon Quest XII. I can see Sony trying to get timed exclusivity for Dragon Quest XII since Sony has been really aggressive in terms of timed exclusivity. And I can't count out Nintendo since Nintendo's willing to pay for timed exclusivity for Dragon Quest games as shown with Dragon Quest XI S.
  7. There's an update to this story. Nvidia is apparently offering $32 billion (USD) to acquire Arm and is in "advanced talks" with Softbank to acquire Arm. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-07-31/nvidia-said-in-advanced-talks-to-buy-softbank-s-chip-company-arm?srnd=technology-vp
  8. If anyone feels bad about paying $60 for the Nintendo Switch version, the Nintendo Switch version has the best cover art in my opinion. I know the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One versions have reversible covers, but the cover art, no matter which side, is cluttered with tacky and distracting gold decorations with "Definitive Edition" and a list of new features written all over them.
  9. I'm guessing it has to do with the fact that the Nintendo Switch version is using a newer version of Unreal Engine 4 compared to the original PlayStation 4 and Steam versions, and that Square Enix had to rework the assets to make Dragon Quest XI S run at a stable (99% of the time) 30 fps on Nintendo Switch.
  10. Before you buy Dragon Quest XI S for PlayStation 4, Xbox platforms, or Steam, you should note that Square Enix ported the Nintendo Switch version to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, and Steam versions, which means that the downgraded assets will be present in those versions if you care about graphic fidelity. More information can be read here and below.
  11. Pre-orders are available for Dragon Quest XI S on PlayStation 4, Xbox platforms, and Steam. The Steam version costs $39.99: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1295510/DRAGON_QUEST_XI_S_Echoes_of_an_Elusive_Age__Definitive_Edition/
  12. The question is will Square Enix bring Dragon Quest I, II, and III to the Xbox platforms and PlayStation 4 (in the West)?
