Knowing all the character from 4-8 was a big motivation for getting for me. Since I've never even played a musou game before.
The only other Musou Game I played beforehand was a bit of Hyrule Warriors, which I didn't really like all that much... Luckily for me, I enjoyed Heroes way more than Hyrule Warriors. The DQ characters help but I think the combat was just more satisfying.

Watching a DQ4 DS speedrun at RPG Limit Break makes me want to play the game again

Then I remember I have a save file right at the final boss and I stopped to go back and try to get rare equips and goof around in the world before I beat the game. This was like two summers ago.

Last summer it was DQ9 for the first time. Marathoned 40 hours of that game in about a week.

This summer I really feel like it should be one of 6-8 that I have never beaten. 6 I have a file where I have unlocked jobs and have a shit load of ill gotten casino tokens. 7 I have also just unlocked jobs and done a minor bit of grinding just to try a few of them out. 8 I got discouraged when I couldn't get the DLC items because of the dumb time change thing on my 3DS I never got too far.

I think what I may do with some of these games I've beaten and would totally play again is to mess around in game and deck myself out as much as possible. I could beat DQ4 whenever or I could sit and try to get Torneko to steal rare items for me forever. And doing that for a few hours here and there won't preclude me from wanting to play other games! Same with DQ5 only with monster recruiting. Same I suppose with DQ9 only with job grinding? Making my own fun out of games I've played to death is definitely an exciting proposition.

It’s really bizarre that DQB2 is less than two months away and they still haven’t released final western box art or pre-order bonus details.

This didn’t get a lot of attention in the Gaming forum, figured I’d post it here.

Not sure if this is worth a new thread but more cast announcements



The newly announced roles include: (Top row, left to right in image above):

(Bottom row, left to right):

  • Chikako Kaku as Martha (Madalena in the English version)
  • Kōichi Yamadera as Surarin (Rocket in the English version)
Has Pusan/Dr. Agon had an official design before? He looks surprisingly modern day.

I'm laughing so hard because Pusan looks like a mascot for baking soda.

Anyways his original design was base on his generic sprite but with glasses. So I guess that's why they changed it.

They made Super Mario Maker 2 into a bonafide GOTY contender with all the shit they added, not to mention more replay value than just about anything.

So naturally, Dragon Quest Builders 2 comes out 2 weeks later. Here's hoping it takes off on PS4.
