This will be the finest Dragon Quest


Recommended Posts

This... This is genius. Between both games, I will get everything I want from this series. A wonderfully nostalgic romp with the 3ds version. And a glorious hd interpretation. I kind of want the 3ds ver more since its so weird. I am in full hype mode.

 

This may bee last dq with the core three. What an ambitious project in that regard.

 

We need to start campaigning hard for this. Preempt the game

DQIX technically had the most "epic" story, except maybe vii.   The main character is an angel. God is essentially killed at the beginning of the game. You have a cursed kingdom returning from bey

Yeah, I get that impression as well.  This is likely to be the defacto DQ, that when we see DQ13, then 14, we'll look back and be all...wow, that was quite the release, wasn't it?  DQ11 stands out as a truly magnificent title.

Well, when this comes from the DQ event, you know they always give it their all but this one may be a special case.

 

Sugiyama, who turned 84-years-old this year, said he will do his best to work on the title, and will give it his all as long as he’s still alive.

Yeah, I think he'll hand off to his successor sooner rather than later.

Dragon Quest IX holds that title. We'll see if XI dethrones it.

I'm going to be miserable that day. Even Sugiyama at his most mediocre is something I cherish, because I want to take what I can get while I still can

It seems it will. Looks promising. Specially if that about choosing either visual or random encounters is true... I've heard that if you use the circle pad you get visual encounters and DQ7's battle system and if you use the d-pad you get random encounters and the classic battle system.

But i'll wait until we get a little more details about the rest of the party... i wouldn't like it to be like IX (while it was a good game its not the best DQ...)

The game isn't even out yet. How could you possibly know if it will be the best Dragon Quest ever? :P

 

Search your feelings.  You know this to be true.

No props again for a movie/game reference.

 

Maybe I should make it more obvious...

 

 

Vader: Dragon Quest 11 will be the greatest Dragon Quest ever made!

 

Luke: NO!  NO!  That can't possibly be true!  Dragon Quest 11 is not the greatest!

 

Vader: Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

I like some of the ideas, though the seeming lack of significant Horii involvement(not that I blame him since he's getting old) and the fact that both versions have the same story meaning that even the PS4 version will be restricted to 3DS story standards has me a bit worried. But oh well, we'll see. I'd be more than happy to have my doubts overturned.

I don't think so. VII is by far my favorite in the series and IX wasn't all that great and it looks like XI is using the same team from IX so that doesn't give me very much confidence in XI already.

Games released on Nintendo handhelds are generally 'toned done' for the sake of the children so yeah. When you're making a game for the DS/3DS/whatever you have to keep in mind that you're making a game for the 3DS and plan accordingly. For example, I doubt you'd see something like the implied rape in DQ6 in a game that was made specifically for the system(though it's not like they're going to get rid of it in a port/remake so it's not 'censorship' it's more like giving the courtesy of self-restraint. Granted, they did tone down at least one of Jessica's outfits in the 3DS port of 8)

They TONED DOWN a outfit of Jessica? If its the bustier. no screw the 3DS version and current state of things. Come on i know "politically correct" is a big fad right now but come on Square Enix, come on Nippon. Dont bend to these peoples will. that makes me sick. remember the 90's when they had a thing called, hmm courage, this is what " i want in MY GAME (or anime) attitude?

 

Note, I am against racism and sexism. I am for equality. but it is $#!& like this that get me. "Jessica's outfit may offend someone, in some way, shape or form" oh no.

 

Has anyone here heard about how some guy was offended about Mario maker having a white hand on screen? yeah welcome to what the world is becoming. If people like that gets attention, and gets they're way.  welcome to the age of a world wide, politically correct dictatorship.

Oh, yeah, the graphics are directly related to the story lines. I forgot about that seeing as how engrossed I've been with plot lines in HD porn...

 

I was also not aware of the lower story quality on 3DS. I could've sworn that SMTIV was on my 3DS, but I guess I was wrong. It happens.

 

And movies for kids have crap, toned down stories, you're right. I live over by Disney World. It's a shame it's closed now, I heard the movies their studios were pumping out were pure crap and it bankrupted them. UP? There was less emotion and plot in that movie than in an empty cardboard box.

I wouldn't speak so soon.  We don't know anything about the game.  This title has to hit a few points to be considered the best DQ in my mind.  I'm just glad there's a PS4 version coming so we could get a full experience.

Every game developer is not going to fully express them self anymore, having to tip toe around. Unless they do like Kojima (MGSV). His name was removed from the box and development team disbanded. I remember seeing a statement from Kojima saying with MGSV he was going to creatively express him self, the game is going to have questionable things in it. maybe if they didn't water it down.

 

censorship and region blocking need to go away, no one likes your rule. people should have sense. "i don't to see this, or let my kids see this so it's up to me, not censorship to decide." 

 

I see Japan as this awesome place that has so many creative minds that is not afraid of expressing them self. and now it seems they are picking up on western ways more and more. It would be nice if they got rid of they're xenophobia already, come on it's 2015. not Edo. xenophobia should be gone in places like Kansai.

I have to give credit where credit is due:  SE has completely blown away any expectations that I had for DQ11, and I was expecting it to be great.  I'm a jaded, old gamer who doesn't have many wow moments with this hobby of mine anymore, but...  wow.  This elation, however, will transform into a new level of contempt for this company if both of these versions don't get localized.

Then give credit where credit is due. Square Enix has nothing to do with how good the game looks. It's all Armor Project and Orca. Square Enix still sucks.
