  1. Oh, that did it! Thanks! So odd that it's the only Japanese program I've ever had that issue with. Anyway, game time!
  2. Ah, thanks, but as I said, I have the Japanese IME installed and use it daily in programs like Word, Chrome, and Final Fantasy XIV. For some reason DQX is the first time I've encountered it not working correctly
  3. Hi All! Decided to jump back into this game, but am jumping from Wii to Windows 8.1 PC, and for some reason when I type in-game in Japanese all I get is question marks. I live in Japan and type in Japanese in all other kinds of programs, including Final Fantasy XIV, so I really can't imagine what the problem could be. When I'm in Japanese IME mode, it will type in romaji without any problems, but as soon I switch to hiragana, all I get is ? for each character. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Got OST?

    Dragon Quest X Symphonic Suite was announced for release on December 5th. I lost the link to the initial announcement I read, but you can see its listing here on Amazon Japan... EDIT: Oh, here's a link with a cover image and a track listing...
  5. Do you guys know this website: http://dq10-memo.com/ ? It's an online guide to DQX that seems to be regularly updated. It's all in Japanese, of course, but if your languages skills are lacking, the google translate version isn't horrible, per se...
  6. I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but a few different shops here in Tokyo told me it was a limited run and they don't expect them back. If you search it on biccamera.com, they don't even have the listing, er, listed anymore. That said, Mimas is totally right about the build quality. The slimes sit up there just DYING to fall off at the slightest brush of a hand or controller cable. Even the keys themselves aren't terribly pleasant to type on. It's definitely the cutest thing ever, but practical it ain't.
  7. Guess I am just going to have to get an American Wii U as well. Though it would be nice if they have some sort of server overlap. The extent to which I wish Wii U would be region-free is nearly unexplainable. I've basically resigned myself to the fact that I'm only ever again playing Nintendo games in Japanese, which is honestly fine since I am basically comfortable in Japanese, but it would just be nice to have the choice! And I sure hope the Wii U version of DQX shares the same servers. I'd hate to lose my character.
  8. The app picked up eight people today. Now, of course, the hard part will be finding them in the game. Over so many servers, it really might take a while. But we'll see how it goes. It's fun passing people with the app because you exchange profile cards that show you the person's character's picture, level, total play time, and a little message they write. One of the people I passed today has more than 120 hours logged already! Makes my 36 hours look full of shame
  9. Of course I've been! Thank the Goddess for the concierge - I need those genkidamas or I'd be hopeless at grinding. But yeah, I've noticed the mention of double surechigai there. I don't think ten is unreasonable. I mean, the app only hit the Nintendo e-shop at around 3pm today, so when I left the house later, I doubt nearly anyone had the app yet. But normal streetpasses are EASY to come by here. I only went a few stations down the line (well, to Shinjuku) and I got 30 of them today. And only because I only checked three times. You can just stand in one spot in Shinjuku Station and get as many as you please, though that is sort of cheating, isn't it? Anyway, I'm excited for the doubles to start happening... Also, the coolest thing about the app is the 3D! I didn't have it turned up when I wrote my first post earlier, but WOW. The live cam in 3D looks seriously cool. A+ to Nintendo and Squenix on that one.
  10. Here are two terrible pics I took with my iPhone of my 3DS LL and the new app. The first is just the title screen, the second is the main menu. The top screen is a continuously updated high-res (for 3DS) pic from the in-game live cam. This one is in グレン城下町 (Glen Castle Town). And the bottom screen is the main menu. http://postimage.org/image/66vzzd71h/ http://postimage.org/image/hyognwr1h/
  11. Today was the release of the 3DS's DQX "tool" 『ドラゴンクエストⅩ 冒険者ã®ãŠã§ã‹ã‘便利ツールã€that lets you do all sorts of things, coolest of which is "Double Streetpass" -- if you pass the same person in both real life and in the DQX game world, you gain Double Streetpass points and, I'd imagine, receive some kind of rare item as a reward. It would seem like a sort of impossible thing, Double Streetpassing, but living in central Tokyo, you pass so many other people with 3DSs that I'd imagine it will happen sooner rather than later. Is anyone else around here in Japan? I'm so curious to see when someone will manage a Double Streetpass... Anyway, here's a list of all the stuff the 3DS app does: http://gematsu.com/2...n-app-announced
  12. Isn't it the best? I ran into my first Slime King today, and that was pretty exciting, too. Not in terms of XP, but simply because it had me squealing in delight Otherwise, I've been questing around Julette a bit. And I finally started trying out the different guilds, so I've been doing some sewing. Sort of exciting to wake up to mail waiting with gold from the Bazaar Such a heavy emphasis on grinding in this game that that seems to keep me busy most of the time. Being an adult is the worst (IRL, I mean) in terms of not having any free time to play! So I'm still only level 23 or 24 (I forgot... ) Oh well, c'est la vie...
  13. Went doing a couple of little fetch quests last night. Re-found the story, so I'm back on track with that. And spent some time leveling with a few pals I've made. Haven't had much time this week (what with silly work getting in the way), but I have the day entirely to myself today, a few bottles of Diet Coke in the fridge, and am ready for a marathon...
  14. Oooh, okay. I'll have to try that. And yeah, I meant like Lamp, or sewing, or blacksmithing, etc. I haven't tried any of them yet. Actually, what have I been doing in the game?? Really just running around killing things and making friends, I suppose. Gotta get serious this weekend...
  15. How do you get those screenshots?? And I agree, DQX might be my new favorite, too. Though I really do have to get back to the story. Have you joined a guild? I keep meaning to...
  16. Thought a thread where we DQX players could share our daily in-game experiences might be fun. For example, I just killed my first metal slime about an hour ago and it was ridiculously exciting. Also I happened to be within those magical thirty minutes of 元気タイム(genki time), so all my experience was doubled. In a party of 4, I wound up with 2600P and all four of us gained levels. Cheers and celebration all around I played a lot today. I had the day off from work, so I basically spent the whole day in front of the TV. Went from Level 18 this morning to Level 22 this evening. I went exploring for the first time. I've stuck entirely to my home base so far, but today I hopped on the train and visited each different city. Turns out my home city, ジュレットã®ç”º (Julette? Maybe?) is probably my least favorite of the bunch. I hate how it's designed with all the different staircases. I can never seem to remember how to get around. Eventually I wound up in 岳都ガタラ (how are we translating that? Just Gatara?), which I really like. Compact, rugged, easy to navigate. Nice town. So I spent a lot of the day leveling with Dwarves. Good times. What have you guys been up to?
  17. Fairly true. I mean, games in general are a lot more mainstream here. You see businesspeople playing 3DS every time you take a train. During the summer, when university is out of session, I teach business classes to adults, and I had so many middle-aged businessmen over the past two weeks tell me what race and class they are in DQX. Dragon Quest really is a whole different league than any other game, though. No one blinked an eye at Final Fantasy 13-2, for example, but even a spinoff game like DQM:3D comes out and everyone is talking about it. Theme music on the streets is pushing the legend a bit too far, though...
  18. Yep. Though why go basic when you can have the Slime Keyboard?
  19. Newguy here. You don't *need* a keyboard (especially if you're importing and don't speak Japanese ), but you basically need a keyboard. The in-game keyboard system is really frustratingly terrible. It would take forever to write even a couple of sentences. There's a whole list of pre-set phrases you can choose from like, "Wanna form a party?" or simple things like "Thanks!" or "Congrats!", but eventually you'll want to talk about specifics. "Looking for Lvl 20 and up people to kill the lizard boss with", etc. Long story short: Yup, need a keyboard
  20. Yes! I was there once. It's sort of cute and sort of super tacky. Cosplay in general sort of weirds me out, and Luida's Bar is really no different. Also it's in Roppongi which is pretty gross in and of itself. But I will say that Slime nikuman was pretty adorable Thanks for the welcome. Will definitely keep updated. Have the day off tomorrow, so I see myself being up all night tonight. Am thinking of starting a second character. I'm really dying to be a Pukuripo...
  21. Wow, you've been busy! I only just managed to register for the concierge service the other day, so I'm hoping I'll start leveling a bit more quickly using those power orbs. It's fun, isn't it, seeing how much grinding you can fit into the 30 minutes? Hoping to start a Pukuripo mage pretty soon, too. I'm kind of obsessed with how adorable they are, so we'll have to see what actually being one does to my sanity (or lack thereof). Will PM my ID when I get home tonight...
  22. Man, maybe I should have picked a stronger class/race combo. At level 18, my Weddie thief is still only doing 20ish damage against most baddies. Your Ogre Warriors are badass...
  23. Oh, okay. I'll pick it up the next time I see it. It's about time I have a wife other than Bianca, anyway...
  24. Whoooooaaaaaa your smileys are slimes!! I'm in love!
  25. Nice. I've never played DQ5 on PS2. Only Super Famicon and DS. Is it worth picking up? I often see it at used game stores for less than a thousand yen. Are the load times a bummer? I played DQIV on PS1 and that was the big issue with it. Anyway, thanks for the welcomes
