  1. I don't know about that. I personally love the designs for Joker 3, X and many other spinoffs. Like, sure the likes of Walk and of the Stars are not the most inspired designed games, but these are mobile ones. The big games have had pretty interesting designs imo. I guess the lack of variety in XI (compared to what X and Joker 3 offered in liberty of creation due to the numerous races of X or the futuristic aspect of J3) made Toriyama less enthusiastic about the game. Nevertheless, his designs keep getting better. Sword still his one of his best inspired work so far imo, and X still is the best inspired DQ to day. As for Sugiyama, true his work seems less and less inspired too, but I'm sure one could squeeze some pretty amazing musics out of him yet. The best that could happen tho, would be for him to realize that he's getting less inspired (kinda like what Uemastu did for FFX), and for him to take like one or two "disciples" or something. Horii... Horii is a gem. But from what I've gathered he's not working alone on the scripts and scenarios anymore. DQ of the Stars is being written by someone else already, and I guess the written room is filled with people to work on specific quests or portions of the scenario and stuff like that. All things considered, I'm pretty confident in the future of the franchise.
  2. Damn it SE, of all DQ mobile games why does it have to be this DQ Wars sub-par game? DQ Rivals alone would be more selling imo. But who am I to judge, eh?
  3. That's absolutely awesome! I've heard of this hex thingy before, but never really thought about what it meant or how it worked. Does it looks like a bunch of 0 and 1, or maybe some other numbers to re-create characters (letters/Kanji, numbers...) or do you have a txt file that you can translate juste like that? Ah, look at me, am sorry, I guess I'll just have to wait and see when you post pictures of the translation process! I wish you a successful endeavor, and I'll be sure to play the heck out of this game once it's translated!
  4. Ooooh that'd be absolutely brilliant! The 3rd Torneko game always looked like a lot of fun. If you do work on it, do you think you could do some screenshots of the work progress and maybe the softwares you use to do so? I've always been curious as to how people translated games, but never actually saw how it worked.
  5. Aye, I haven't played X at all, but apparently he's the version 1 last boss, and main antagonist before meeting his end. He still has a pretty damn big impact on the world and main character tho. Should you want to read some about him, here's his Japanese DQX wikia entry: https://wikiwiki.jp/dq10dic2nd/【冥王ネルゲル】
  6. Zenus (his Japanese name in DQIX is 創造神グランゼニス ("Sōzō-shin guranzenisu", or in English Creation God Grand Zenith, or something like that) is present in DQX, where he's called グランゼニス ("Guranzenisu", or just Grand Zenith in English). It's the god who created mankind (as opposed to those who created the other playable races) and he's alive and well, while his daughter is nowhere to be seen (even tho I believe a ship is named after her Japanese name). There are numerous quests and some npcs (mostly Stella and Sterling) that connect IX and X together. I'm mostly thinking about this quest: グレイナル叙事詩 ("Gureinaru jojishi", or in English "The Epic of Greygnarl") which tells how the first hero of time helped defeat the King of Disaster (the scary looking Estark). This first hero, if I understood it well, was titled 星空の守り人 ("Hoshizora no mamoribito", or in English "Gardian of the Starry Skies") too.
  7. Same, I hoped it will be released on all consoles at the same time, as to avoid having to buy a "Definitive Edition" later. Or a Final Mix, Royal, Turbo, Emerald (etc) version later on. Well anyway, I know I won't play it on its release day anyway, since I'll have many other games to beat first, so I'll have the time to see where it's launched and if it'll have more than one edition too. I Stull haven't played XI, which is why I'm glad my first play through will be on PS4 with the Definitive Edition hehe.
  8. As much as I'd live to import the 5 volumes from the US, the price is ridiculously high (around 100€). Fortunately, I was able to find the Japanese scans again. I absolutely love what I saw in these, but there are some point I'd love to see explained. Is there one of you guys I could pm and ask questions about the story/characters? (or even better, any of you looking to sell there volumes? 👀)
  9. Well I for one am glad I'll be able to play the Switch port on PS4, given I've neither played the original PS4 version, nore the Switch version. 😁 This way I won't be needing to buy a Switch to play.
  10. While I would rather keep the original trio, I wouldn't mind having the Dragonlord's grandson given more action. Funny thing, in the Enix Gamebook of DQII, the Dragonlord actually has a more prominent role in the story, helping the trip going to Hargon's castle and fighting off monsters while the trio goes on to fight Hargon himself. Plus, he also appeares in his draconic form, which would be cool to see, as it could somehow mimic Yggdragon's form and show how the lineage of this sacred beast has returned to the side of light or something. Dragonlord's grandson, Gamebook version Aside for that, giving more spells and or some abilities to the prince of midenhall could be nice too. Like, mercurial trust etc.
  11. Because a good solo RPG is better than any MMORPG imo. 🤔 The multi-player aspect of IX is the very reason why we don't have a single goof character in the party. X has the luxury of having good and interesting NPCs that can join the party, at times. I'd favor that over any MMO aspect, which also requires players to have a subscription to Nintendo Net or PS+ or something like that I guess. Tho I agree, the best possible thing would be for people to be able to chose what and how they want to play X. I despise MMOs, all of them, cause they often have a pretty interesting story, cool NPCs, but need to have a balanced team of actual people to make it through the game, and I don't like to rely on others to advance in a game. I know this is very personal and selfish, but heh, what can I say. I don't like MMOs, and should X be localized outside of Japan, yes, I do hope it'd have at the very least a fully offline feature. I don't want to see other people playing in my game is all. 😅 That, and I believe using a system akin to FFXII for story NPCs and/or bland team members a la DQIX (gambits etc) would be absolutely awesome. Why would I need people to play with me and taking out bosses or raids when I can do that on my own with AI controled characters ? 😌 If a game is solo-able, then it should be a solo game imo. It defeats the purpose of multi-player if the game permits people to play solo-player style.
  12. I mean, I guess people can appreciate Angelo because of his brother. Yeah. I like how Angelo makes Marcello even better too. 😌
  13. Well, all the more reason for the game to be released periodically like a full fledged RPG imo. 🤔 No need for costly OnLine servers, just 5 separate games, 60€ each. Like that, if V1.0 doesn't sell, they won't need to work on V2.0. 👌🏻 I wonder, which console would receive DQX, should it be sell outside of Japan? Switch, PC and PS4/5? Would it be deemed worth for westerners on PC and PS, considering the game, while beautifully designed still uses models from the Wii? 🤔
  14. I'm personally conflicted about a potential release. As much as I'd love to actually play DQX, explore its rich and interesting world and lore, I also really don't enjoy playing in a world and seeing other members jumping around. I personally don't like MMO, having tried a few. Tho of course this wouldn't be the main reason, and would be selfish methink. However, the reason why I could wish for X not to be localized, is because I fear about its performance. It would need to be played, but just how many people would actually play it, the number, is what worry me. Should X come out, that'd be great, but if the players are so few that the game is dismissed, then SE might lose money, and confidence in porting more DQ games outside Japan. Or at least, that's what I'm worried about. Maybe X failure wouldn't have any impact at all. 🤔 As for myself, I'd personally love playing X full solo. As in, no MMO, just RPG. It'd probably feel like playing FFXII or Skyrim or something, but since you can make you own party or get temporary story-related NPCs to help you in your quest (if I'm not mistaken), soloing it wouldn't be a massive problem. I'd happily buy each extension like a separate game, which would be as money consuming as a monthly subscription in my mind too. 🤔
  15. Yes! Yes to all of what Sham said! Maribel is perfect, Angelo is poop.
