  1. So 3 games (tho only one of these will possibly come to us), a beautiful looking animé (tho that's nothing new), and a prequel manga on Avan, made by Shibata Yusaku, author of "Zipman". Yup, all in one, that's pretty good news! I hope the company that holds the rights of the manga in France, Tonkam, will re-release the 37 volumes when the anime hits the market, and that either them or any of the two other company who ever sold DQ mangas (Kii-on and Mana Books) will get their hands on the prequel too. As for the console game, it looks like it could run on a Switch. So Switch +
  2. Bland? As if. Greatest game in the franchise if you ask me. And it'd still be the greatest one even if it Maribel wasn't in it. But she is, making this game the best one and second best one altogether.
  3. Party chat is present on the Mobile port as well as the Japanese DS version. As for the "bad accents"... I dinnae know what ye're talking aboot. They did add accents to the game, t'make it feel like a more diverse world, I guess? But these accents being bad or good is purely subjective. I personally think they're great and contribute to the game being absolutely brilliant.
  4. I'd love a game taking place in another's game past tbh. Not necessarily one about Erdwin (tho a game following Erdwin and Serenica's descendants could be nice), but a game exploring maybe Ramias, Shebath, Valora and Orgo (any of them really) would be nice imo. I don't really have preferences in term of settings. It could be high fantasy, little bit of steampunk, full fledged medieval... Or maybe something more exotic, like taking inspiration from Abel Yushaa in term of artistic direction. Having a native American vibe in a way, or something like that. Like maybe more Celtic, Inuit, Afri
  5. They're also both annoying. I don't think I've noticed anything like that in my playthrough personally. Allusions to mythology etc, yes, of course, but nothing alluding to other game franchises or media.
  6. Yup I saw that. That was much enjoyable too! I Googled a bit to learn more about the tour, and I was surprised to see that their first representation was in 1995.
  7. I had no idea they came to France last year, at Japan Expo Paris. Then again I don't usually go to these conversations, not even at Japan Expo Marseilles (even tho it's much closer for me). I was curious about the ballet, and I must say I got hooked pretty quick! Too bad I'd have to go to Tokyo to see the full story. It indeed has the making of a nice story. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would definitely watch the full spectacle.
  8. The manga of DQVII and Emblem of Roto - Heirs of the Crest (I don't know if this one has an official english name, I'm merel translating the french version of the title) hints at VII being set after II, in the upper world of III, and I believe it also hints at VIII being set before III. Emblem of Roto, EoR - Heirs of the Crest and the DQVII manga were all made by the same team if I'm not mistaken. The three mangas are a trilogy anyway, having the same artist but also shared characters. All three of them were also supervised by Horii, but I don't know if that means he had anything to do w
  9. I'm a bit late to the party. Sadly most of the mega links are down. Where they the links to see the episode where the main characters get killed? Cause that's definitely something I'm curious to see. I mean, what a ballsy move to end your serie with heroes diying. EDIT: I am even slower than I thought haha, didn't see the first reply with where to look on the torrent file. Hopefully I'll get to watch the ending I want to see.
  10. Well, turns out I managed to get it to work! I chose the first option, when you click to import monsters from either M2 or J3, which is basically a way to import data from the game. Once the data are updated, then the latest monsters you've caught are selectable to import. Also, should you have done the fondude quest, that gives you a rainbow fondude, I remarked that every time I fuse a monster with it, I get two monsters: the one I chose to get, and a copy of the rainbow fondude with the same +number than the fused monster. Like, when fusing my Break Estark SS+25 with the Ra
  11. As I am finaly getting close to the very last boss of Joker 3 Pro, I saw a difficulty pick increase, and not wanting to be stuck at one boss battle for months, I decided using Joker 3 as a way to farm rare monsters and then transfer them to J3P might be a good idea. To some extant it actually was. You can apparently transfer the same monster over and over again (I have now two Malrothes in J3P). But as I kept getting pretty good monsters in reular Joker 3 (namely Zoma and Estark Break), I realized that I couldn't transfer them over to J3P, and I was curious to know if any of you had any
  12. I loved Marcello. I would have preferred to have him in my party, instead of his prick of a brother, ngl.
  13. Depends, do you want "regular" fanart, or nsfw fanart? The latter is much easier to find. *cough*rule*cough cough*youknowthenumber*cough cough* Personnally I usually go on Deviantart or the likes. Pixiv is also a good alternative. What I suggest to get maybe more results, is to look for the japanese name directly. It usually gives more results.
  14. Hi there! I have one question regarding DQMJ2 Pro. I have just beaten Joker 2, and have played a huge portion of Joker 3 Pro too. I was wondering if it was possible to "skip" the regular J2 story, just like it is possible to "skip" regular J3 story in J3P. As much as I loved J2, I don't really feel like doing it again anytime soon. I just want to get to early post-game, after we go back to the main island. :v Thanks in advance if you have the answer!
  15. I couldn't agree more. This isn't a DQV movie, this a movie about someone playing DQV VR, an adaption of the original game (and therefore not THE Dragon Quest V that we all know), and the story of how the hero loves his video game experience, the characters in it and the story, to contrast with the antagonist, not Ladja, but the guy who cannot begin to understand why Luca enjoys his video games. A vilain who obviously has never heard of catharsis. I just love the fact that this movie isn't just a DQV movie, but I can see why people can be... Frustrated by it, as the movie was advertised
  16. Marry Mada, and Puffpuff Smilo. (This big boy looks so damn fluffy.) I'm not into Thwacking. :c
  17. Ditto. I don't like Heartsone and wouldn't probably play Rivals even of it was in French (or English), but the art is gorgeous.
  18. As a Final Fantasy Tactics lover, I was intrigued by the prospect of a DQ tactical-RPG. So I played DQ Wars. I'm not going to lie, even for a 3+ € game, I was disappointed. When I heard about the new DQ "Tact", I thought it was finally the possibility of a full game with a compelling story, vocations for human characters with no personality (which is the only kinda games where this doesn't bother me) and a few important ones for the sake of the scenario. And so here I am again, confronted to what looks like a Mobile (so prettier) DQ Wars. I'm not interested in the slightest, but I'
  19. But only because of the visual and customisation! There are actual interesting characters that really have a story, unlike IX Oh yeah, that's right. It was on the 4. something, when you go to the future because of the mech that's causing havoc, right? Just before going to see Anlucia's ancestors.
  20. I for one kinda liked this one. It has a DQIX vibe, a nice customizable party, a large world and for once allow the player to go to outer space. The list of event in the JP version is also rather nice. Basically every DQ games were events at some point, and almost every manga too. Emblem of Roto, Daï's Great Adventure, etc etc. Really, I liked playing this one, cause it felt to me like an upgraded DQIX. And I don't even like DQIX !
  21. I kinda hope the game is going to be an action-RPG. The battles in the anime and manga are so impressive, going to a turn-based RPG would be quite less entertaining. Plus, since it's a spin-off, that wouldn't be too bad. Like, something akin to KH (with AI allies) would be neat. But without KH's QTE and writing.
  22. I for one, just love the French accent in VIII and XI. Be it the bartenders or everybody from l'académie des médailles or whatever is its name. It just cracks me up. As for the puns, since I'm a French player I can't really tell. I don't know the English ones, and the French ones I know and love must be stranger to you all. But I do 'laugh' (maybe too strong of a word, but you get the idea) quite often.
  23. Gotta go with Dragonlord. Both Emblem of Roto and DQ Builders fleshed him into one of the most (well) developed antagonist of the franchise. The godlike dragon turned evil because of one jerk (Gorgona, in EoR) when he was still an infant, who decided to fight for the sake of monsterkind, who turned against the one who made him evil when he realized that he was 'too' evil, to the guy who tempted the main protagonist of DQ, and who by that logic is the only vilain who succeeded. At least in one of the timelines. Good ol' Dragonlord is fabulous, and fabulously interesting.
  24. And hopefully the remake will correct the same issues that I have too about the game. Mainly these fact that it's indeed short if you focus on the story itself, no party chat, no actual party members. I too have the feeling they were trying to emulate DQIII, with a bit of MMO-esque things, and the result is clearly not my cup of tea. DQIII was and still is great when you keep in mind it's a game from the late 80s. DQIX being a game from the late 2000s makes it bad imo. Like the gale has qualities, the soundtrack and some NPCs, along with a solid gameplay, but everything concerning the pa
  25. Couldn't agree more. Way better than Hero x Jessica. But none are as wholesome as Hero/Yangus relationship.
