      My goodness. So which of the bigger titles are you tackling first?

      Let's see, I've already started Builders 2, IV, and XI, and I'm chipping away at Stars. Hmm, I'd say I'll go for Builders 2 first, then IV, XI, and lastly I - III. I've already played XI on Steam so I'm prioritising the other 2 games above it and I've also played I and III but I've yet to finish II.

      Oh, so your experience with XI is kind of like mine. I beat it on PS4 then bought it upon release for the Switch and played it again. The second playthrough was way more in depth though. In the first one, I just got the credits to roll. 

  2. Ok, the game's fun and all but when do I get to fight Estark??
  3. Yes. But if they released Rivals on the Switch they might bring this over too. Sure it won't be as good as an intended console release but I really don't like playing games on mobile.
  4. Still 15 days until the release, maybe it will reach 500k. Probably not, but it would be cool to see.
  5. Probably referring to after Calasmos is beaten, where he says that his body may die, but his spirit will live on and that the darkness will never fade as without it, light cannot exist. This means that the return of an evil of Calasmos' caliber such as Zoma, could be considered a return of Calasmos, as they would both be wrought of the same darkness. This is not definite but based on the parallels we can draw from them make it likely. Obviously it is not the literal return of Calasmos, as Zoma doesn't share his memories or form, but it is the return of the dark entity I guess. But then do the Dragonlord and Malroth come from that same darkness? Probably not, as the Dragonlord is likely to have come from the Dragon Queen's Egg, and Malroth is a god, which seems like a seperate entity to Zoma and Calasmos, more similar to Rubiss. However, the darkness that Calasmos referred to is reflected in their actions.
  6. Browser version went up recently.
  7. I'm referring to Mordragon and Mordragon's Tail (the Timewyrm as well, I guess). Wherever I look I can't seem to find Toriyama art of the final form which is a shame as I actually really liked his final form's design. I've even tried searching in Japanese and no luck there either, but I do recall finding an article about him that said it is unknown whether Toriyama even designed the final boss. This seems unlikely but based on how I can't find any art of him anywhere, maybe it's true.
  8. Mordegon: I did like Mordegon as a villain, as he was both imposing and actually dangerous - unlike villains who just sit around on a nice throne all day. He had an ominous presence all throughout the game and even had a bit of a backstory to him, which gave him a little more depth. Seeing him actually succeed in a goal was interesting and it made him feel very threatening as all the towns suffered as a result, which I enjoyed. I found the final boss fight with him to be very fun and somewhat reminiscent of Mortamor. Calasmos: Eh, didn't really like him. Didn't have any character unlike Mordegon and Jasper. He was just some evil guy that we have to kill. He wasn't threatening, ominous, and was a villain who just sat around in a nice space bubble all day. More could've been done with him - exploring his relationship to the tockles would've made him more memorable. DQXI Hero: I like the Luminary's design. Compared to other Dragon Quest heroes he interacted with the party really well, and his grunts were funny but worked. Having him talk as a child was unexpected and there was excellent attention to detail in giving him a different accent in Rab's bonus story.
  9. Unfortunately you can't. However, in Act 3, you are able to access the parade again and then Hendrik and Rab will appear in those outfits.
  10. Hendrik: My favourite character in the game. I love his personality and he's just a really cool character in my opinion. In Act 1 he is presented as a generic villain but it is clear that his actions are a result of his loyalty to Carnelian. We see his depth of character in Act 2 and understand the guilt he feels. It is also interesting and appropriate to see him take on the hero role in the beginning of Act 2. Despite his stoic personality, sometimes he breaks out of his knightly character and it's hilarious. His interactions with Sylvando are also quite interesting as he is a direct contrast to his personality. Hendrik is everything a knight is expected to be while Sylvando chooses to make people smile, but to abide by the same principles. In battle, he is also amazing as he can soak up many hits and dish out loads of damage. On top of that, his abilities reflect his personality (cough, cough, Jade). Jasper: I liked Jasper as a villain. His backstory with Hendrik is pretty well developed and I understand his struggle. He would always feel eclipsed by Hendrik and although he becomes a famed strategist and tactician, he cannot help but feel like Hendrik is moving on without him and he is left to rot. This is something Mordegon then capitalises on causing his eventual turn to darkness. His intentions and reasoning is better explained in the bonus scene in DQXIS. He also somewhat feels regret at the end of Act 2 after being defeated and talking to Hendrik, making me feel some remorse for him. Gemma: Very bland love interest, so bland that I have nothing else to say about her. In battle, she can either scream 'Eek, monsters!', causing her to miss her own turn or use items to heal your HP and MP when it gets low. In other words, I would choose to fight alongside Sandy in a heartbeat.
  11. Sylvando: An excellent character with excellent design, there is never a dull moment with him and his development over the story is fantastic. In battle. he works in pretty much every party and has not only good all around ability but also entertaining moves, suitably. His optimistic attitude and flamboyant personality is fun all throughout the game and not once becomes obnoxious. Also his interactions with 8 are fun to watch and make sense as they both learn from each other. Rab: Good design and story. He is both funny and fits in the main story very well, and he also has quite emotional scenes (especially in DQXIS). In battle, he is fun to use and can fit most roles, I used him as my main healer instead of Serena. I also seeing his relationship with the Luminary develop and the added scene with them in DQXIS is an excellent addition. Jade: Cool design, interesting backstory, but that's about it. This character could've been much better but they just capitalised on the design instead. In battle, she is great offensively, but I find the Sex Appeal skills obnoxious as she is clearly not a character who would use those abilities, similar to Jessica in DQVIII where the fan service also takes from the character in my opinion. I would have preferred more development and no Sex Appeal skills, they just don't make sense for this character.
