  1. I never liked the humor of Shrek, and I never was interested in the Panda movies, but I loved How to Train your Dragon (and the TV shows I have watched; I'm still missing like two seasons).

    Latest movie I watched (twice and counting) was Captain Marvel.

    I really worried that they would make it nothing but politics, but that was not the case, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I really like the Kree, and I loved how they were portrayed in the movie. Even if they did not have a lot of screen time and had some changes from the comics version, like Minn-Erva, the Supreme Intelligence and Ronan, I think they all looked great and left a good taste.

    There's probably a new Itadaki Street for the Switch on the works, i'm 99% sure of it...but it might not come til 2020 at earliest and i'm sure that one it's going to be released on the west because nintendo will probably push for it.

    So, in development now but it would come out until 2020? Those Itadaki Street games must be very time consuming to develop.

  3. There is no Monsters 3. It's just 1 and 2, then Caravan Heart is its own thing, then the Joker series. That said, I voted "Monsters 4".

    I would also enjoy Heroes 3 a lot, but I am just now playing the first one in English, which means I have this and II to enjoy again, and I could wait a bit more for a third game.

    Also, I know you are using the English names, but having 3 Slime Morimori games already can make the "Rocket Slime 2" thing look confusing.

    Those specific years are not invented tho but actually said, be it in mangas or in novelizations. ^^

    The year 1348 is the actual year given in the official novelization of Dragon Quest 1. The rest (1546) is pure math and estimations used by the numbers given in the very same novelization. In the DQII novel, we even learn that Alef, DQ1 hero, died at the age 52 or something. It's quite a shame we never got any of those officially translated. 

    Wow! That's great to know. I am not familiar at all with novels, I'm sad to say.

    Kind of a necropost, but boy do I love timeline theories! 

     

    0.       The universe is created.  We don’t have any clue of the actual creation, which means it could be a regular Big-Bang or something more “god-made”. Either way, this resulted in a fully livable universe, with suns, stars, and planets. The concepts of space, time, light and darkness must have been created at the very beginning of the universe too.

     

    1.       At some point, god-like beings like Azurozoma and Genosidoh must have lose their powers somehow and revert to their known iterations: Zoma and Sidoh/Malroth. Nadiria’s creation, the Dread Realm, the Dream Realm, Wonderland and all other pocket-universe like the Fairy World from DQV must have been created eons ago too.

     

    2.       Rubiss (a fire spirit) and Dialto (a human-earth spirit hybrid) fell in love with each other, in the Spirit Realm. Rubiss nicknamed Dialto "Loto/Roto/Erdrick" (loved one). A war emerged on the Spirit Realm, forcing the two lovers to escape, riding a Ramia, which Dialto could talk to. They fled on the world below with Rubiss’ baby golden dragon. (Seirei Rubiss Densetsu volume 1-7)

     

    3.        Dialto became a hero on this land, due to his spirit lineage, being naturally stronger than any other man. However, due to his human lineage, he couldn’t live eternally, and soon Rubiss had to mourn him. His death was celebrated, and in his honor, the world was soon renamed “Lotozeratia/Erdrea”. Rubiss then took over Dialto as an earth-spirit and overseer of this world. She grew the World Tree and somehow linked it to her dragon, which would become this world’s new protector.  

     

    4.       12,000 years before DQIII era, the Mu Empire was a strong and powerful force to be reckoned. Tao Ra Mu, the continent and Empire leader was a good but naive man. His brother took advantage of this and made a pact with a daemon lord. This resulted in the island utter destruction. Some inhabitants made it out alive and founded the country of Zipang. Tao was saved by Rubiss, and tasked with a holy mission: he would one day help a hero to defeat the daemon that had destroyed the island when it would return. She turned him into stone, for him to be able to wait that long. (Dragon Quest: Emblem of Roto Volume )

     

    5.      

      Reveal hidden contents

    Erdwin, a descendant and reincarnation of Dialto traveled the world with his companions, in a quest to defeat the demon lord that was terrorizing the world. However, he was ultimately betrayed by one of his fellow companions and died. Overwhelmed with grief, Serenica, who loved him, became a timekeeper, to ensure that one day, Erdwin would be reincarnated. (DQXI past)

      Reveal hidden contents

    Eleven, a young man, find himself to be Erdwin’s reincarnation. He then travels around the world with companions, with the goal to end what his ancestor started a long time ago. However, upon defeating his enemy, one of his dear companions found death in the heat of battle. Resolved in finding a way to bring her back to life, Eleven used his blessed sword to break the time sphere, and went back in time, creating a new timeline (T2). There, Eleven managed –thanks to his knowledge of the future- to prevent some events. In the end, Eleven defeated the evil that had scourged the planet for too long. Yggdragon, a descendant of Rubiss’ dragon fused with the essence of the World Tree, Yggdrasil, thanked Eleven and dubbed him with the title of Loto/Roto/Erdrick. (DQXI present)

    7.       At some point in time, eons later, Rubiss created Alefgard, a sub-world of Erdrea. On this new land, she was revered as a goddess. But soon, arch-daemon Zoma took over and turned her into stone. Zoma then sent his most trusted general, Baramos, to conquer the upper world. Tao was also awoken from his stone slumber when Rubiss was turned, at her turn, into stone. (Dragon Quest: Emblem of Roto Volume )

     

    8.       After his father of a hero Ortega, was reported to be presumed dead, Arel was tasked, on his 16th birthday, to complete his father’s work on saving the world from the demon Baramos. Arel traveled with three companions, and eventually defeated the demons, but learned soon after that he was merely a tool of arch-daemon Zoma. Arel then traveled to the underworld Alefgard, and defeated Zoma, using the sphere of light. Rubiss was freed, and dubbed Arel with the title of Roto/Erdrick, recognizing him as a descendant/reincarnation of her beloved Dialto. On his quest, Arel also met with the Dragon Queen, the current descendant of Yggdragon. She layed an egg, which would later hatch the new sacred protector of the upper world. (DQIII)

     

    9.       Unbeknownst to Arel, Zoma didn’t die. He went to a solitary island to awaken his true powers, to become the god Aruzazoma again but was stopped and properly killed by two monster tamers, Cobi and Tara (DQM2). Arel returned to the upper world and had three children, Loran, Carmen, and a secret daughter. He eventually died, and his sons founded two kingdoms in the upper world, namely the kingdom of Loran, where Baramos’ castle was and the kingdom of Carmen. His daughter took the castle Zoma lived in and made it her own. The Dragon Queen’s son was retrieved by Gorgona, a general of evil, who had plans on bringing the daemon that had destroyed the Mu Empire eons ago back. (Dragon Quest: Emblem of Roto Volume 1)

     

    10.    Hundred years later, Arus, Allan and Aster, all three descendants of Arel, united after a few years, to defeat the Lord of Terror that had destroyed Mu Empire. Of the Lord of Terror’s army, only the Dragonlord made it alive. (Dragon Quest: Emblem of Roto Volume 21)

     

    11.   The Dragonlord, in the year 1348 of Alefgard calendar, stole the sphere of light. He used its immense power to wipe out two third of the underworld population and would have to wait 200 years before being able to use it again. (Dragon Quest I novelization)

     

    12.   In 1546, Alef, the only descendant of Arel alive, started his journey to defeat Dragonlord. He traveled alone, all across the island Alefgard. Alef eventually rescued Princess Laura, who had been captured by Dragonlord, after a young Terry was unable to carry her out of her cell. He eventually arrived in front of his enemy. And after a rough fight, killed him (or joined him, leading to Dragon Quest Builders) and returned the light to the underworld. With the power of light retrieved, Rubiss could resume the making of the underworld and created Torland for Alef to explore with his bride, Princess Laura. The two of them had three children, all of them making kingdoms of their own. (Dragon Quest I/Kenshin), (Dragon Quest Monster 1: Terry’s Wonderland)

     

    13.   100 years later, Hargon, the evil priest and Malroth worshiper, brought destruction to the Moonbrook Castle. Allen and Conan, the Prince of Midenhall and Cannock respectively, two descendants of Alef (and by extension of Arel, Eleven, Erdwin and Dialto) traveled Torland to rescue their cousin, the new queen of castle Moonbrook, and eventually destroyed Malroth. (Dragon Quest II)

     

    14.   Some years later, Allen wished to explore the upper world, to see his ancestors’ home. Using a balloon he made it through the Gaia’s Hole, and arrived in the upper world, bringing with him Roto’s Sword. Unfortunately, he arrived when a cataclysmic battle between powerful beings (Numen and Orgodemir) was happening. He crashed on a land unknown to him and saw the Gaia’s Hole permanently plugged. He then settled where he could. He lived a long life, and his descendant would keep his swordsmanship’s skills alive. One of his descendants eventually founded a kingdom on a small island. His latest descendant in this era would be Kiefer. (Dragon Quest VII: Warriors of Eden Manga Volume 11)

     

    15.   In a distant future, a young Kiefer was transported to Torland, centuries after the event of DQII. The bloodline of Roto had disappeared, in this land, and spirits of earth, fire, wind and water were tasked by Rubiss to oversee the wellbeing of this land. Magargi, the Mistress of Illusion and Rubiss’ friend, got possessed by Gisverg, a daemon. Kiefer eventually used the remaining power of Roto’s equipment, now turned into 4 orbs, to free the mystical lady, before being sent back to his world and era. (Dragon Quest Monsters 3: Caravan Heart)

     

    16.   Kiefer and Auster decided to explore Estard Island, to uncover its secrets. In time, they would discover the truth about the missing part of the world, and would, with some other companions, return the world to its original self. Kiefer left the party at some point and went on living with the Peregrims. In the present, his descendant, Aishe, joined the party to defeat Orgodemir once and for all, putting Numen, the current god of the upper world (Erdrea), back in place. Aishe being the latest descendant by deduction, of Dialto. (Dragon Quest VII)

     

    Some people care about "reviving old posts". I don't. I think that, if the topic can continue, it is better than creating a new thread for the same thing.

    By the way, when adding specific years, doesn't this stop being a theory and become fan fiction? ;)

    I say because you may rather like the Literature forums here.

    I still think I saw Ortega in the credits though. Rewatching them last night via the options menu, I swear I saw him again. Hmm...

    Did that Ortega look like the one on our versions? Or did he look like Kandata/Kandar?

    Because there's a chance in Japan they still see Ortega as a Kandata colorswap.

    Yeah, you can access the PS Store via website.  The interface for the store on PS4 used to be even worse than it is now, and I always found it easier to buy on a browser and then download on the PS4.

     

    Or sometimes if I see a sale, I can buy something away from home.

    I bought some PS4 stuff before I even got the PS4.

    Yeah, sadly this affected DQIX from my collection. If they end up making a mobile port of it I hope they fix this broken part of the game.

    I know a guy who can modify the DQ IX save file to add the lost online content. ;););););)

    And to that Stuner guy, no one is trying to "sell you" anything. Just trying to give you reasons to stop trying to tell others their ideas are terrible and that entire continents should only do what you allow.

    Not that any of us has any real say in this, but it can be really annoying to read such negative comments when framed that way.

    One can simply say "I would prefer this or that and I would find an offline version to be very boring" instead of "That's sounds a terrible idea. Then just let American and Europan players play DQX without VPN. Not need to make some boring offline DQX.

    I'm sad because, by last month when I finally had the time to buy games, the Asian English version for the Vita was no longer available on Play-Asia...
    I want a physical copy on English for the Vita.
    With so many very specific quests on this game, I soon learned that my level of semi-reading Japanese would not be enough for me to advance in the game properly.
    I would love to try my hand at my own (definitely smaller) creations on Builders.

    I heard somewhere that the Vita version runs very poorly.

    I got the Japanese Vita version. I am fine with how well it runs, and I always liked to also have the English Vita (retail) version.

    But I also did not expect to fail miserably at working my way through the game with my minuscule understanding of Japanese. It has always been enough as long as I am not required to place a specific number of items in a specific type of room assigned to a specific character. :(
