  1. My preferred DQ OSTs are IV and VIII, but they all have their bright spots. Having the same composer for so many games leads to a lot of consistency.
  2. I do like DQXI's soundtrack a lot. The city theme is lively and complex, I really enjoy the music that plays during the forge (and in some villages?), that triumphant theme that plays whenever things are going well with your party always makes me smile, and I enjoy the cave/dungeon theme too. I do wish some of the tracks didn't repeat so much, but that's a common Dragon Quest problem. And I can't figure out why the battle theme doesn't normally play the extended/longer version (they save this for minibosses), which really would help break up some of the monotony. The world's opened up a bit more now, but before going exploring, I did the next main chapter of the game: Lonalulu. Wow!
  3. Most recently, I've finished the Octogonia section and moved onto Puerto Valor. Jade is...kind of amazing? It's refreshing to see such a physically capable female character that's also not constantly dropping sassy man-hating comments at every turn. She's very strong, but also poised, protective and respectful, and has potential to be one of my favorites. So now I'm getting out into the open sea, ready for more adventures. Sounds like Lonalulu is next on my destination list.
  4. Hiya. Long time no (new) DQ! But XI's release has gotten me all hyped up, and I'm glad I waited for the Switch version to finally try it out.
  5. My first DQ since IX and it's blowing my mind! I'm about 25 hours in and just entered two new towns while exploring (spoiler marked to be safe): and I'm having a great time with it. Stronger Monsters is the way to go for anyone who enjoyed any of the original DQ releases' difficulty level. Are these towns pretty much the best RPG towns ever? I'm kind of in awe at how gorgeous and sprawling they are, and there's so much detail in every interior. Seamless transitions too.
  6. This game has really exceeded my expectations, even as a DQ fan. It really improves on the original in a lot of ways, and they've done a great job making the building more intuitive than ever. The story and characters are super-charming as well! I'm currently building up my main island after Furrowfield and the game just keeps throwing so many new features at me that I can barely keep up.
  7. After a somewhat slow-paced beginning, this game has become ridiculously addictive! I'm already really impressed by all the little upgrades from the original, and look forward to seeing what further unlocks await down the line. I'm currently in the first main island after the intro, and am seeking out the final couple of crops. It's been a blast so far. Any suggestions for dealing with monster attacks on my town though? I built fairly tall so the Skeletons keep crashing through my farmers' sleeping quarters. I tried erecting a chalk wall in front of the whole side of the town and that seems to have done the trick, but is there a better way of keeping them from destroying my buildings?
  8. I am so flippin' excited about this, you guys. I absolutely love Smash and DQ (and Banjo-Kazooie!) so yesterday was a dream come true. I really hope this gives the series the boost it needs in the US.
  9. I'm a fan. It looks different but nice, and DQV is a great choice to base a movie on.
  10. Man, good things come to those who wait. I'm super excited to finally play this, especially with the enhancements!
  11. So did they forget to update that dungeon sprite in DW1? That's kind of funny. Are there any other remains of the original sprites tucked away in DW1?
  12. This game looks awesome! Ridley and Simon in particular are fantastic additions. I'm really hoping for a DQ rep--Slime would be my top choice, Erdrick right behind him, but I'd be thrilled with anyone, really. It's kind of insane to think that DQ hasn't gotten any Smash representation by now.
  13. Yeah, the Nanking thing is odd. I wouldn't say that's what's really being addressed lately though. Fair enough on your second point. Regarding the boycott talk, I fear that the series getting more bad publicity is only going to...well, hurt the series' success in the US. And I doubt it'd have any tangible effect on Sugiyama himself.
  14. I'm a guy, but in games where I can pick my avatar, I typically just go for the cooler-looking one, or the one that feels more "definitive" to me (I play female Inkling in Splatoon and female Wii Fit Trainer but male Villager in Smash, male in Animal Crossing etc). A defined female protagonist in DQ would be pretty cool. In fact, I kind of would prefer having the story built around a female character rather than having the option to pick. In a lot of adventure games, the sex of the main character subtly affects how characters interact with them (marriage in DQV, Young Link and Ruto's relationship in OoT, the romance angle in Illusion of Gaia, etc). Assuming DQ is back to being more narrative-driven as opposed to DQX and IX to a lesser extent, maybe we'll see a leading lady in XII.
  15. I feel the reaction to this whole thing is overblown--Sugiyama's an 87 year-old Japanese man expected to conform to 2018 American culture views on homosexuality. He comes from a completely different era of a completely different culture. Do the people boycotting DQ because of this apply that line of thinking to any artist? Because there's no way that, between all the media one consumes, every work is penned by people who share one's specific views on homosexuality, the environment, gun control, abortion, religion, the death penalty, immigration, health care...
