May have to give that dude a shot. He could be useful for some bosses.

I'm about to start Ophilia's chapter 2. I accidentally stumbled upon the thief shrine while trying to get to her location.

Solid tip, thanks Platty!  He's saved my bacon on the Chapter 3 bosses since you mentioned him.

At about 64 hours in, and all but two stories completed.  This game is amazing, and I'm proud to have stuck it out all the way through so far!

I've been slacking in the game. Mostly don't have the energy to play. Decided the best route to go right now would be to do Olberic's chapter 2 while I train Alfyn up a bit so he can handle his chapter 2 with ease.

At 68 hours, I've completed all Chapter 4s, gotten all finales, all 12 subclasses, and tied up two sidequest chains vital to post-game content.  Now it's a long grind for levels and resources for post-game stuff.  I'm happy with this so far!

Meanwhile the WoodStar guild is sitting around twiddling their thumbs in the Fetid Necropolis wondering when they’ll get back to exploring.

Wasn't feeling confident about the Olberic chapter 2 so I started grinding a bit as I went to find more cities. Made it to Goldshore and found the Merchant class. Will double back and get the Warrior class soon.

This is honestly really encouraging. For a game that people initially dismissed for being more on the outdated side, it is really making a splash in the market.

This is honestly very discouraging. I mean, when did we become a click bait message board. I mean, how hard was it to type out a little message to preface the link?

Btw, Octopath has sold 1,000,000 copies. Guess we'll get a sequel, Decipath Travelers. I'd go with 9, but no one likes or easily remembers that prefix.

Maybe it's just a sign of worldwide release. **cough cough, dumbass Squeenix takes a year to translate DQ, cough cough**

I'm really sorry about that. I was at work when this happened, so I didn't have time to write a proper comment. I won't do that again. My apologies.

It worked fine for me. I think maybe he just has issues seeing it because he's on Tapatalk or something. Don't sweat it duderino. These things happen :)

Didn't mean to sound so harsh, I was just trying to model my response after Democrobot.

It's just that these things seemingly have become more common since DQXI got announced. Someone will start a topic and say "hey Bob.com wrote about DQIX" and then just post a link. As a message board, I'd hope we'd just copy & paste the story if it's short or at least say what it's about. Personal preference as I hate clicking.

The links work on Tapatalk just fine, but for something so small, a screenshot or note would suffice.

I understand. Once again, I'm really sorry about that and I won't do that again. I'm also really sorry for I feel like I'm at fault for the clickbait-y nature of Dragon's Den nowadays.

Sorry dude, apparently Tapatalk showed me just about this. I've heard it shows a lot more in browsers. 6ee6f8e8acebf493250cb4fecaea2845.jpg

On desktop it loads the actual photo. That's why I assumed the issue was Tapatalk being the way it is

Square Enix on Octopath Traveler 1:
-Sales stronger than firm's pre-sales forecast; exceeded expectations especially in U.S. & Europe
- Higher-than-average ratio of download version vs packaged


Square Enix on Octopath Traveler 2:
- (Your analysis on success?) more appreciation to JRPG in recent years, game design that appeals to old Square Enix game fans, new elements including HD-2D, attractive characters etc.


Square Enix on Octopath Traveler 3:
-(You still think Switch's a good platform for middle-range games?) Yes.
-(Can we expect more of similar games from you?) Yes
-(Platforms?) Octopath is Switch exclusive, where appropriate for forthcoming ones.




Square Enix better not half-ass the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Quest XI (port wise and marketing wise).

Middle-range games?  Never heard that, but I think it's mainly all I play.

Since no one else has brought this up around here, this is as good a place as any to post this on the Den.

Square Enix is teasing a new game in the Bravely series from Square Enix Business Division 11. On the official Japanese Twitter account for the series, a new image and message was shared. In addition to again sharing a congratulations message celebrating one million copies being shipped, it showcases one of the Bravely series’ fairies’ shadows and suggests the next game the developer is working on is a part of that series.

 

Here is the translation of the full Bravely series’ tweet:

It has already been reported,

Octopath 1 million shipped /

 

Thank you!

 

Well, well…… !?

 

Please keep an eye out for Square Enix 11 BD’s upcoming game. m_ _m

DjqCQY-U4AALLvZThe artwork in the tease also flips the image from the tweet celebrating one million shipments of Octopath Traveler, so it looks more like the silhouette of a fairy. It also makes it look like that game is casting the shadow of a cryst-fairy.

 

 

It should also be noted that the Twitter handle has been changed to “ブレイブリー◯◯◯◯◯” (Bravely ____) to go with the teaser.

 

Octopath Traveler is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch worldwide. Bravely Default: Flying Fairy and Bravely Second: End Layer are both available for the Nintendo 3DS.

I didn’t even notice the 1,000,000 copies image looked similar to Airy’s pose on Bravely Default’s boxart. Now I can’t unsee it! It’s about time we heard about the next Bravely game. Hopefully it’s script won’t be as....”interesting,” as Bravely Second’s was. Yes I know I’m the minority who wasn’t a fan of Bravely Second’s attempts at humor, and I’m sure Platty will point that out. Hooray for being different. (Flails arms)

I hope this is a sign for the third game. Its the one thing (other than a unique DQ game) that would get me to pick up a Switch sooner than later.
