  1. Happy Easter to the Den! I got to be one of the lectors for tonight's Vigil Mass and was assigned to read about the parting of the red sea and subsequent destruction of Pharaoh and his armies.

      Fairly significant passage and honor.  You must feel rather proud for being chosen to read.  Happy Easter to you as well!

      It was an honor. I got some positive feedback from the congregation and I'm glad they enjoyed it.

      I went to an FSSP vigil done pre-55 style, before the Holy Week reforms of Pius XII. The Feeneyites from the St. Benedict Center were there too. 

  2. Happy New Year and a Merry Eighth Day of Christmas!

      The forum won't let me answer your message, no matter the lenght :(

  3. Merry Seventh Day of Christmas to the Den! (And a belated fourth, fifith, and sixth)!

  4. Merry Third Day of Christmas to the Den! (And a belated second).

  5. Merry First Day of Christmas to the Den!

  6. Happy St. Nicholas Day to the Den!

  7. NOW INQUIRING INTO DQXI Casino Strategies.

    Also, solved the crashing problem. Somehow all my graphic settings got bumped back to their highest settings and my system was choking.

      Ah, glad it worked out.

      Buy somewhere between 200 and 1000 tokens, whatever you can afford and feel comfortable with.


      Play Poker and double or nothing each time only to a max of 3 or 4 guesses before taking the wins. 

      Reset if you lose everything.

      You could play Slime Quest Slots as well, but it's not very lucrative.

      Do note there is a bunny girl in both casinos (only one in Act 1, 2 in Acts 2 and 3), that lets you know which Slime Slot is hot or not, and another called the Jackpot girl, who tells you what the value of the jackpot is (max 1m), and another who gives you a hint on the best slot.

      There's a special item from DQ2, a Tombola Ticket, you can find on the casino floor, it allows you to play the DQ2 lottery game for actual Gold prizes.  I suggest playing it a bit if you're low on cash to trade for Tokens up front.  You can't miss it, it's near the bar on the left on the casino floor (or the right if you're on the floor facing the stairs to the exit).

      Save again at 3000 ~ 5000 Tokens

      Automate 10 token slots.  There are a number of ways to generate automation on PC.  Let it run as long as you want, getting as many tokens as you feel you need.

      The only item in the first casino that offers a good resale value, is the Mercury's Headband.  Later on, in the second casino, you can exploit Sage's Elixirs for infinite Gold (9 at a time, unfortunately, but it doesn't take long to buy 99, then run down to the nearest shop to sell, and return to the casino, to repeat until you're satisfied).

      For 100 token slots in Act 2, you'll want to keep at least 30,000 tokens, though I recommend 50,000 as a decent cushion should things go wrong.  30k is sufficient, 50k is if you're a magnet for bad luck.

      Thanks for the advice!

  8. Welp, I may have jinxed it. DRXI has taken a turn for the unstable and has started regularly crashing on me.

    I don't particularly care to wrestle my way through a thousand and one baby-steps, saving after I do anything, so I'm either looking at investing in a PC or just making the jump to DQXIS on the Switch.

  9. DQXI plays *much* better on this uncluttered new SSD of mine. It's no PS4, but *wow* what an improvement.

  10. So the old hard-disk drive fell over and died last week and I've given it a Hard-D transplant; checking in with an all-new SSD drive.

  11. So apparently somebody leaked TF2's source-code. There goes a business.

  12. Happy Easter to the Den!

    1. ignasia


      Happy Jesus actual birthday, and the celebration of his death and divine resurrection to remove tragedy from winter, and begin the year with death and rebirth symbolism instead, so the divinity of the son blessing the world with the rays of the sun casting out all the shadows and pall of winter's bone.

      So Happy Easter to you too!

  13. Social distancing circle got broken yesterday, so as a precaution, I'm isolating myself in my room for two weeks.

    1. Dwaine


      Oh, you were going to do that anyway.

    2. Brother Jaybird

      Brother Jaybird

      Well, yeah, but now I'm isolating myself hardcore.

  14. Big Steam sale on Tomb Raider games right now, including a couple of free games.

    1. eal


      The first game of the reboot series and Temple of Osiris are free, specifically. Smart. Give people bored in their house a free game that has two sequel games.

    1. Mefista


      So THAT is why they have hit the 5-year-old-uploads with copystrikes, leading to me being perma-banned from Youtube T_T

    2. Brother Jaybird

      Brother Jaybird

      Ouch. Sorry to hear that.

    3. Mefista


      Don't worry, that happened almost a year ago, so I am atleast partially over it)

  15. Mass is being cancelled in my area and the home-stay has begun. Stay safe, all of you.

    1. ignasia


      Prayers to you and everyone else here.  Though I think we'll be just fine.  This feels like it's for something else, and getting people away from distractions and more available if you're going to make a massive announcement and reveal.  If I'm right, we'll find out sometime at the end of this month.

      I'm wondering why we moved 30,000 troops just recently into Europe.  Most of Europe has more than ample troops at home, more than adequate to handle quarantine, especially if reserves are called in (which they haven't been...which is why I'm wondering why we're sending in troops).

      The leaders of the world aren't coordinated enough to fake a global epidemic, or to fake even their own incompetence in failing to handle a global epidemic. The layers and layers and layers of incompetent bureaucrats and newscasters theory accounts for the matter of the epidemic.

  16. So Scooby-Doo and Guess Who seems like a poorly-disguised attempt to make use of all those leftover Hanna Barbera IPs. Shame that the writing is nowhere near as clever as Be Cool, Scooby Doo.

    1. Brother Jaybird

      Brother Jaybird

      I amend my statement: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who is exceptionally cheap, badly written, and a waste of its audience's time.

  17. My life will never have more DQ2 in it than it will in this picture:

  18. INJURY: Just found Windows is advertising apps in my start menu.

    INSULT: The app in question is for typing practice.

  19. Some day, I want to do a DQIX run where I model a bunch of party members after all the characters from the official art. There are a good three or four consistent parties Nine runs around with in the art.

  20. DK Stars is live in five!

      I know he's in game proper, I just wanted him in a trailer T_T

    3. ignasia


      Orgy certainly deserved better.  He was one of the better written bosses.

    4. Mefista


      I'll never be over you deciding on such a pet name for him XD

      But indeed.

  21. So I got a Rank Up here in the Den and completely failed to notice until today. Do I get any skill points?

  22. Sam Raimi is in talks to direct Doctor Strange 2. Neat!

  23. So, how many gratuitously re-named monsters does DQ7 have? I found sting slime and caper tiger so far.
