  1. Why would you want that? This way we're so much easier to sort.
  2. One of the best descriptions of modern localization I heard was the admittedly crass metaphor that it was like importing foreign liqueur, only the importer peed in every bottle. Another harmful side-effect of all this is that it encourages piracy, because it's increasingly the only way to get to the original content.
  3. Wait, we have one of those? I don't want to miss next year's!
  4. So this bizarre thing is hiding behind your podcast insert. Looks like the top half of a 404. I'm going to call it the 404 Spider.
  5. 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!

  6. Welcome to the Den! Watch your feet, don't step off the thread, and you'll do fine! I dallied with the demo for DQX a few years ago but since my interest is mainly story and worldbuilding, my lack of Japanese ultimately held me back. If I play, it'd probably have to be an English version (which is... unlikely).
  7. I had an interest in some of the art myself, so I hope you don't mind if I helped myself to the zip file. Lots of neat stuff in it! But, also, yes, spoilers.
  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. Welcome to the Den! Watch your step, don't fall off the thread, and you'll do fine! I used to lurk in the Den myself, starting back in high school when I would come here to look at stuff for Dragon Quest VIII, which I was not able to properly finish myself until the 3DS release. DQIX is one of my favorites, too; it has the best premise and mythology of any of the games up to that point (X has this kitchen-sink thing going on and I haven't finished XI vanilla).
  10. DQXI plays *much* better on this uncluttered new SSD of mine. It's no PS4, but *wow* what an improvement.

  11. 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.

  12. Welp. Started playing again. Gotta say I *like* what they're doing with Alchemy this time, adding a little Pokemon-style evolution to the weapons (and with branching paths!). Beats the palette swaps of DQIX, that's for sure. Doing the Rubiss quests now, which is fine and dandy. Got to relive getting thrown in jail by weakling guards again, which is a hit of anti-nostalgia. ADDENDUM: "Get back in the book, you dirty old man!" is now one of the great quotes of the game.
  13. Hahaha, thanks, but I probably won't be fighting him again. My main option for DQ Heroes II is a poorly optimized laptop that can only really handle the game at 20fps and still lags at that speed. My ability to play is pretty severely handicapped, so my complaints should probably be taken with a grain or two of salt.
