DQS, DQSt, or better abbreviation?

Recommended Posts

"Dragon Quest of the Stars" can be abbreviated to "DQS", but it can mean Dragon Quest Swords, too. I think DQS has to be spared for the latter.

I propose DQSt. What do you think?

# BTW I've written some Japanese articles in my blog on the Japanese version of DQSt. I've been using the prefix "dqp-" for their URLs, because the game title can be translated as "Dragon Quest of the Planets"; the game is set in a couple of *planets*, not in stars. I think "of the Stars" is a wrong translation, as I wrote here. 😉

Edit: In Japanese, the game's title "ドラゴンクエスト" is abbreviated to "星ドラ". ("Hoshi-dora", rhyming crudely with "got-it, got-that".) This abbreviation is also used by Square-Enix.

I like DQStars.

Colloquially, planets are stars (both are tiny sparkles in the sky), and the distinction only really exists in astronomy and related discussions.

It’s like poetry, they rhyme.

But, also. The “st” in “stars” combined with the “que” reads as “Quest.”

I had that exact brainwave about ten seconds ago before I jumped back on to the forum just now.

We should start calling it Seikaiju no MeiDQ. It’ll be perfect.

It wasn’t a serious suggestion. You’ll learn real quick not to take everything I say seriously.

Every time I see MeiQ I just think of this:

This is like the brain twister. Everything Yangus says is a lie.

Yangus: "I'm lying."

Pfft I can’t imagine it’s much worse than Dungeon Travelers 2.

Dungeon Travelers 2 killed my enjoyment of the genre after throwing so many new characters at me at the 10 hour mark and the 20 hour mark and then near 25 and the story was pushing me to have them replace other party members, but the new people were such low levels and the older party people had already moved on to secondary classes. Once I saw that pattern was going to repeat and I wasn't half done... I was done.

Besides I have Mary Skelter & that other boob game coming for Switch. One day. Maybe. Whenever Limited Run makes their Limited Run.

I’m a mystery wrapped in an enigma. You never know what it real or fake when I’m around.

 

And that’s probably for the best you didn’t touch that game. The only dungeon crawlers I’ve found that really do the genre right are Etrian games, and that’s not just my bias towards the series talking. They are well made games.

If you’re so hard up for boob games and want to play a different genre there’s always Omega Labyrinth on Switch.

From the people I know who enjoy boob games, I was told to avoid it. Also, not a big fan of that combat.

I have Double Peace on Vita. I actually don’t know why I bought it. I think it was just because it was way cheaper than normal and I just figured I’d flip it someday?

There’s also a game on Switch, can’t remember the name, where you play as a pair of women’s underwear.
