How's your Dragon Quest 11S playthrough going?
>>480772674Waiting for the content to be available on PS4, or waiting for Nintendo to release a Switch PRO upgrade or whatever.I'm still buying a Switch copy of DQ11 soon.
>>48077267420 hours in.
>>480773223Square Enix doesn't port new content added to new releases of games to older releases. They feel it's a waste of time and resources because they already got the customer's money. They new content is strictly to incentivize people to double dip or to convince fence-sitters to buy the new game rather than a cheaper older version. They didn't port speed boost to the console port of FF type 0 HD. They didn't port job reset to the PS4 or Steam version of FF XII. They're not going to port all the new shit in DQXIS to the other versions.
>>480772674Does anyone know if new enemies/bosses show up in the Switch version? And if so, how many?
>>480774091I know there's some extra bosses, as some of the new items are locked behind them. Don't know how many of there are, tho.
>>480773896Then I'll have to wait until Nintendo releases a new Switch.I heard something about it having Japanese voices. Are they available on the US version? Is it fully voiced or just the bare minimum?
redpill me on Dragon QuestI played DQ8 on PS2 and thought it was cute but too dull to get very far in, and I droped DQ4 on the DS early on cause honestly the DS had too many RPGs that were all more exciting
i played dq11 on pc (max settings 144fps 1440p) when it came out but it didnt have the magic i was expecting, i couldnt bring myself to sit at my desk so long for a game like that and stopped playing at lonalulu act 1.On switch it's a whole different story, I'm hooked, the game is comfier in bed in handheld mode, theres a lot of QoL and neat extras to definitive edition. I can't imagine going back to not seeing my party follow me around, for example.Put in 50hrs so far done every sidequest storming the sky castle to beat mordegon now having a great time.
>>480774574I played 8 on the PS2. I thought it was slow, boring, and tedious. Dropped it within 20 hours.Loved XI, now I plan to try VIII again on PS2, or go for the 3DS VII port.
>>480774574there's no redpill to take you just don't like the series
I will wait for the emulator ktnksbye
>>480774317Yes they're available and probably all major story dialogue is voiced.Random npcs on towns and in small sidewuests won't be voiced. Typically how they do it on jrpgs
>>480773896they ported the extra world of final fantasy maxima content to the original ps4 version as dlc.
>>480772674>that mermaid just straight up killed herself to be with her Honolulu HusbandoWhat a cute couple. I hope they both accepted Jesus.
>>480775123Sweet.I'll buy it then, and keep it besides XB2 and OctoT until the time comes.
>>480772674pirated it yesterday, just got to the child with attitude in your picdoes she get more bearable as time goes on?
>>480772674I don’t have it yet. Been playing CTR until then. When THE FUCK are they adding Sir Daniel Fortesque. We already have Spyro, may as well add in Daniel while he’s actually popular
>>480775569Yeah, you can't even tell she's there later on.
>>480773896>Jew Enix is gonna pass up an opportunity for more moneyLmao. It will be on other systems as DLC in a year. Might buy a used copy of the PS4 version to appreciate the visuals a bit more. Depends on how much I like it, but I am having fun.
>>480776519Look up a history of Dragon Quest remakes and remasters, then tell me how many of them got ported to other systems
I would never pay more than 10 quid for a video-game, and the PC version has awful voice acting and music atm. I'll wait and see if it gets any cheaper. I'm considering picking up FF9 on Switch though.
>>480776694No, suck my cock. It's coming to PS4/PC get over it. XI is has been shilled to death, they know Westerners now know the series exists.
>>480776712You can mod the orchestral themes into PC. You might be able to turn off voice-acting as well.
>get to act 2>Veronica's dead and Serena's back with her hair cutThis is the absolute worst possible outcome and I fucking hate it.
>>480772674Swimmingly. About 62 hours in and enjoying it thoroughly. As >>480774667 said there's the whole comfy aspect of playing it handheld in bed for random levelling etc.
>>480772674Been trying to find this golden cactus to kill
>>480772674It's great. I can't believe a game that's so stuck in tradition keeps finding new ways to surprise me. Like I didn't expect to actually get to do the horse race that's early on.
>>480777912If any of the content was going to PS4/PC, it would've been in the original release, as revisiting past DQ worlds and 2D mode were in the 3DS version of the game, which came out at the same time as the PC and PS4 versions.
>>480778085continue playing it
I'm surprised to fast I got to act 2 playing on 2D. It took me almost 60 hours to get there on PS4. Time to switch to 3D, though.
>>480778615The 3DS version is Jap exclusive. You are being senseless.
>>480779624Planned toJust a tad bit bitter and sad
>>480779964And all of the 3DS version content got ported to the Switch release. If it was going to get ported to PC and PS4, it would've happened in 2017.
>>480779964>The 3DS version is Jap exclusive. You are being senseless.You're in a Dragon Quest thread, a series renowned for shitting on the West senselessly.
>>480775646>making a ps4 only GP and piss off the restSir Dan is a nono
>>480772674i just beat the final boss with super tough monsters on. how the fuck do i get passed my party blocking me from resurrecting veronica
>>480772674Just got the gate open at Puerto Valor. Loving the game so far. Been playing pretty much every night after work.
Anyone here complete all the Tickington events yet?
How are sales for the switch version?Nintendo avertised it very hard
>>480781102Flopped pretty bad from what I'm hearing. West just doesn't care about DQ.
>get to the new super boss in the XI S versionDisappointing. I expected something more interesting. Pretty lazy really.At least it's challenging. On stronger Monsters it basically can slaughter my entire party even at level 99 and with the best equipment. Probably can cheese him with Pep pop+ Ygg blessing spamming though.
9 remake when?
>>480781102In Japan they were amazing. They did 300k the first week, which was more than the next 4 places combined. No word on the Western end though.
>>480772674I was up till 3am last night. Jade and Rab joined my party. I feel like that whole sequence was pretty clumsy mechanically but just heartfelt enough for me to feel engaged with the plot. I now feel some amount of internal conflict stuffing Jade into the bunny suit which is weird because I've NEVER had that problem before. Why? Why do I feel these feelings? She's clearly supposed to be the sexed up curvy gal so why do I hesitate stuffing her in the bunny suit when I put Serena in the dancer costume without second thought? Is it because the game bills her like she's unironically your older sister of sorts?
>>480780817Should I take time off the clear them as soon as I can? Or should i do them all at one go? I feel like I'm more invested in the main plot atm, but if the game rewards me enough without taking too much time with each password I'll do em like chores I guess.
>>480784032I dunno, I felt bad for her when they showed that flashback when she was a kid and couldn't hold on to the MC as a baby. Like she was just a kid but she blamed herself
>>480772674i muted the music
>>480772674Just finished Code Vein so I guess I'll start it up tonight.
>>480781892I remember reading there's a new character, was that true?
Hendrik is best boy
Is every non-combat item picked up at blue spots for crafting or are there ones I can sell off?
>>480786462The only stuff you can sell off for money are coins you find. Like drasillian coins. The rest are for crafting.
>>480772674I've been neglecting my grind so I died fighting boogie.
>>480784032Jade is very-straight laced and pure. Maybe that's why
>>480772674Just got to Arboria.
140 hours inAll I have to do is beat the Timewyrm, then I can do it all over again in 2D.
>>480775292Legit cried actual faggot man tears.
Finished the PS4 version. Is it worth sinking another $60 and 120+ hours into for the additional content?
5 hours in and loving it.
>>480775292That fucked me up.I hate the Japanese an their shitty sad romances.
>>480772674Got to the 3rd act and am kinda getting fucked up with my low level party members. This game is actually really fucking great, been enjoying it thoroughly. Been looking for a time sink and this is it. Was playing through Ff8 earlier this year but stopped because the remaster was coming out. Too bad it was shit so I'll continue that later on at some point.
>>480787176Only if you finished the game back when it released, and you really liked it. If you finished it recently, I would give it some time and wait till there's a price drop.
>>480784182I saved most of them till the end. Most of the ones towards the end are harder than anything in the main game.
>>480787176I played all 3 and would say yes.The extra content makes the PC port look like shit, and that already made the PS4 port obsolete.
Heads up the content will be ported over when they port over the Switch and Xbox versions of FF12.
>>480784695No, but a certain character does get a bit redeemed though or at least shows some semblance of regret.
>>480787635So there are story changes? I thought it was just the 2D mode and the post game that got added.
>>480787553at the end of Tickington I mean.But everything in this game game be kinda cheesed with Yggdrasil's Blessing pep and Pep Pops.
>>480787761There's a lot of changes.To many for me to want to list off.I'm sure an Anon with more time could feed you.
>>480772674Taking it a lot slower than I would like but overall having a good time. I wasn't expecting to get that invested in the series but I already bought both Builders games and this on top of considering DQ I-III.
I have a fulltime job and very little time to play. sucks bro. I wish I was still a neet
>>480787761Post game was always there, just without the Tickington stuff. The late Tickington Stuff basically requires endgame gear and high levels. There's also some additions at the start of Act 2 in the sense of "What were these character doing after this happened", and the story addition I mentioned in the post you responded to. Wheel of Harma also has an additional challenge.
>>480779980If you really want her back, what are you prepared to give up?
>>480787635>certain characterLet meJasper?
>everyone says Sylvando is the best character>finally get to Gallopolis and have him make his apperence>literally wouldn't trust him as far as I can throw himIf this nigga is a spy for the kingdom I wouldn't even be surprised at this point. Dude is shady as fuck.
Got 50 bucks tell me what to buy and where I'm bored and would play any rpg
>>480788237slight edit, the story addition with the character getting some redemption is post game. There are new costumes as well.
>>4807881123 is amazing, 1 is... something, and 2 gives me a panic attack just thinking about it. I would recommend an emulator for the first two, they are SUPER grindy, 1 is literally grind the game, as the end game area is open from the start, but the slides 1-2 shot you.Also SNES translations are what I recommend, the phone ports are shit compared to the Snes versions.
>>480788482He'll grow on you.
>have played dq 4,5,6,7,8 and 9>do tockle stuff where you visit old dq worlds>don't get most of the referencesmy memory is shit. I don't remember anything about fairy forest in DQ5, but I didn't even like that game.
>>480788368Yes, he dies and his soul becomes armor for Eight.
>beat post game super boss>Rewards a new costume for JadeSo they just want to make her broken huh? I guess at this point it doesn't even matter though.
Who did you pick?
>>480788482Unless I am totally misreading the character, because I can 100% see why you’d think that, I’m pretty sure he’s just 100% into the idea of chivalry and the heroes journey. Once he realized what your whole purpose was he seemed genuinely moved and determined to play a role and proves to be very helpful and driven in the next few towns. I read him as genuine so far but I could see him being a turncoat though it would upset me. I like the trope of a character with such integrity joining the hero out of his internal duty to do good.
>>480772674Just bought a Switch todayPicked up Dragon Quest and Astral Chain I'm having a nice time so far
>>480772674I know nothing about the gameplay but the girl is adorable and I am considering a purchase.
>>480788594To be honest I'm a bit of a sucker towards some archaic JRPGs to an extent. DQ III really seems like the sweet spot for that and I look forward to getting to it eventually.
>>480789209Its a JRPG
Well, here's the new hyped up Super Boss they added to post game. Lazy as fuck.
>>480789418Hard as fuck more like it.My party is all level 99 and they immediately get stomped before I can even open the command menu.
>>480789301Valkyria Chronicles, Demon's Souls, Fire Emblem, Hyperdimension Neptunia, and Earthbound are all JRPGs and they play differently.
>>480789603I cheesed the fuck out of it. I had each part member holding 2-3 Pep Pops and Elfen Elixirs for his shitty Double MP use fog, used Ygg Blessing, War Drum, and then just spammed Magic Burst, Multifeet, and Swords Dance.
>>480789119WHOA IS THAT STELLA? WHERE DO I GET MY TRAIN BITCH?
>>480774667this is why "creative professional" laptops are secretly the best
>>480774574quick run down1st very important JRPG everheavily influences most jrpgs that follow if not just slightly to allpick this up and right away you'll know if turn based is for you or not, wether it be DW or reach aroundssomewhat hidden gem of potential commissions, mainly because griefers of the dragonball seriestalk to everybody and check everything in game for secrets: the game -- great outliner for future jrpgs that copy this feature(see first point)hosts in-game mini games for when you need a break from grindan(poker for example, and farmable for loot)lots of different characters etc,
>>480789603Both rewards you get from beating it aren't really worth it, especially when there's literally nothing else to fight the game.
>>480772674>Download costume DLC>Can't find it anywhere in the outfit menusDid I fuck up?
Does the auto combat just make the game boring for anyone? I wasn't sure if anyone even enjoys it
>>480788368He was a massive fsggot but it bothered me how act 3 just dismisses him entirely and Hendrick is like "whaa...?"The whole arc with him and jasper on sct2 was good.
>>480792018It's fine for grinding, but I would never use it for boss fights, the AI isn't very smart.
>>480772674My favorite game of all time, but feeling too burnt out after having replayed it a few months ago. Will play through it soon enough.
>>480788482Well, it seems you're more of an Erik than a Serena, because he feels the same.
Holy shit how can I get 1st in the Difficult Gold Cup on the horse racing? Fucker in 1st place almost instantly hits the finish line as soon he hits the second lap(Gold Cup s 2 laps).No matter how much I can perfect the track, the asshole in 1st literally goes into FTL speed on the last lap.
Why no pachisi
The last boss I've beat is Avarith and now I'm going up the mountain, casting fizzle before the fight begins was a dick move.
>>480791421All DLC extras are buried inside menus. Misc. options IIRC.
>>480772674Just starting any tips?I changed the battle style to classic and I think I prefer that
>just got to act 3Goddamn I didn't expect the game to tell you to abandon your whole party to continue the story.Made me feel like an asshole.
>>480792848You can always just buy the golden reins you casual.
>>480794132Where can I find it?
>>480794208The guy standing next to the counter where you start the races has it.
>>480794027It still feels like the timelines merged since every other line in act 3 is "This is really familiar but I've never been here before?"
>>480772674Man, I just beat Builders 2 this weekend. I can't do this again.
>the Puff Puff of Paradise>realize a whole bunch of different Japanese VAs did their own versions of the scene
>>480780817no, but i only have two left to do (and one of them can't be completed until you beat the final boss of act 3 anyway).
>>480788668Fairy Forest was the place you went to as a kid and the fairy chick gave you a stick, and then you went back there to time travel and get the gold orb from your kid self
>>480793973>I changed the battle style to classic and I think I prefer that>IEveryone prefers that, only short bus residents like free form shit.
>there's a 60 fps hack>it's actually consistent in handheld mode>there are cheats that can double the game speed as wellBlessed piracy
>>480776519It will be a new port, not DLC.The Switch version is literally built on a different engine. They can't just magically patch all that stuff without having to just re port the entire game, which goes well beyond the purview of DLC.It'll be a whole new release that you'll have to pay for again.
>>480794978>classic looks better>but freeform can let you see some unique linesIt's a bit annoying
gonna turn off draconian quest stuff just so i can take it easy and enjoy the game, but the challenge was nice when i was going through it. just not exactly what i wanted out of the game
>>480777912It sounds more like you're trying to console war more then actually talking about Dragon Quest.
These bosses in the final room of Tickington are kinda bullshit on Stronger Enemies.
>>480795445Don't be a pussy anon. The game is insanely boring on normal mode.
Haven't started yet. I still need to update my emunand to 9.0.
>>480784032>>480786874Jade is disappointingly vanilla compared to my perception of her going into the game (I had only seen her during her corrupted arc, which I actually just finished. Damn, that boss was tough).
How is the 2D mode? Looks p comfy. Anyone got any screencaps?
>>480786874and that's a good thing
>>480772674Cute and funny
>>480797230it looks nice, but it's a slog to actually play because of the sky-high encounter rate.
>walmart doesn't have it.
>>480797373Isn't that incest?
>>480798214>absolutely no blood relationno
>>480798203>buying switch games
Just arrived at some town after using the Door of Departure for the first time, 10 hours in. Im not using a guide because read nothing was missable but I do explore each new area/town thoroughly and talk with everyone to see their flavor text.
>>480797968Ah that kinda kills it. Okay, at least now I won't feel bad about being 70 hours into it on PS4. Thanks anon.
I love Chrono Trigger but despise this gameWhat am I doing wrong?
>the fucking dragon that breaks out of the ice in act 2What a fucking dick
I gotta wait for my wagie bux. Does this mean I can play the demo and continue off on the full version when I get it?
>>480772674First run, about to forge the sword. Think i'm at the end of act 2. Having a fucking great time. Can't wait for post game shit, I love games with shit loads of content.
How do you fuck up music this bad in a JRPG? Like japs have to try to create something so awful.
13 hours i, just got Jade and Rab. This is the first DQ I’ve played and I’m loving it. It’s tied with Nier Automata as my favorite RPG this gen
>>480772674Exactly how much was added?After this got released on Switch the PS4 version became cheaper on Amazon.I can get the PS4 version for less than half what the Switch one costs right now.
>>480797968Is it higher than a typical SNES RPG?
Any tips for lord of shadows hard mode? Party is around lv 54 but when he outs that mist out everyone just gets killed after that turn no matter the buffs or debuffs. Do i just need to grind?
I'm 55 hours in or so, near the end of act 3. Wound up stopping yesterday because of dying batteries after getting married.
Veronica is a fucking bitch and I'm gonna brutally beat her up
>>4808042622 hours or so of new content where you play as most of your party individually, full voice acting, and dozens of little QoL improvements like being able to buy forging materials when you use the forge, being able to use the forge anywhere, speeding up battles, being able to call your horse anywhere, it's just miles better to play. There's also the 3DS exclusive shit like 2D mode and a town where you can go back to major locations in old DQ games for some optional quest stuff.Plus, you know, the Switch version is free if you aren't a retard. Do you not have tinfoil lying around, or were you seriously dumb enough to buy a patched unit?
>>480806005Thanks m8, that's a pretty useful rundown on the improvements of the Switch version. Speeding up battles does sound pretty nice for those times I need to grind a bit. I really like the English voices, I think they are fitting but maybe Japanese voices are better, I'll see if I can find something on YouTube.
>>480806001>wishing any kind or amount of harm upon Best Girl
>>480806236If you're playing in English, stick with the English voices. The contrast between the heavily localized script and original dialogue is probably too jarring, I mean they renamed almost every character in the game, every place, every enemy.
>>480806001you my friend are in luck :^)
>>480806709>they renamed almost every character in the gameCamus, Martina and HOMEROS are kinda horrible, not gonna lie.
>>480772674Coming soon OP
>>480807426>HOMEROS Why translate Camus but not Homer?
>>480797968Using that Holy Protection spell lowers it, but having to menu back into it every time is hell.
>>480805231It's Skies of Arcadia-tier. If you move, you can't even count to four seconds without a fight.
>>480774574Neck your self newfag
Pang is really hot
Just found out the 3ds version has korean subtitles so Im gonna play it on my comfy 3ds.
Just got my lovely Serena back.
>>480810129R u jelly?
>>480772674Just got the gay guy.I'm so confused as to why the translation makes him sound 10000% times as gay by writing weird stuff that he never actually says. They turn him from a flamboyant male to a straight sissy in the english translation. Asides from that, super tough enemies make this interesting and every boss battle is intense.
Serena cuts her hair? Can you revert it via costume or accessory or something? I looked up a picture of the short hairstyle and i fucking hate it
>>480810720You're joking, right? He's like 10 times straighter in the localisation.It's shit like this that just makes EOPs so laughable.
>>480775326jap voices are switch only actually
>>480810490>Is Korean>Is ObnoxiousIt checks out.
>>480810783Yeah, don't worry.Serena is shit anyway.
>>480810783you can rewind time
>>480810826No I'm not.He never says "OHHH Princey poo" or "come on kiddies, beddy beddy byes!!""last one to reach the docks is a rotten egg!!"or other added in gay flavor stuff in most of his dialogeWhat is an EOP?Bunch of added stuff like this that isn't in the japanese version.
>>480811306>Bunch of added stuff like this that isn't in the japanese version.No, but he uses feminine style Japanese speech which can't be translated properly to convey that he is acting fruity.https://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2018/03/28/yuji-horii-talks-about-making-dragon-quest-xi-and-the-origins-behind-the-series/#1f048d2937d4>“My favorite character in Dragon Quest XI probably has to be Veronica. Though a lot of the team likes Sylvia, but we're not sure how to depict him in English, as it doesn't those feminine ways of speaking like in Japanese. So I imagine it will have to be done in the way he speaks and the tone as well as the accent maybe.>What is an EOP?English-Only Plebeian. I think.
>>480811306That all sounds pretty in-line with the Japanese, dude. You can't represent someone talking like a flaming homo in English with a bit of grammar and some honorifics.The English version cuts out most of his blatant lusting over men, that's what makes him less gay in English.
I just beat it and thought the game was overall solid. Which DQ should I try next?
>get close to buying a switch for dqxi s>boot up my pc game to feel it again>remember how disappointed I was with act 3>>480809684does it have mandarin subs? I'm learning the language
>>480811479In all honesty most of his "femenine" style of speaking is about himself. At best you can argue that adding -chan is saying calling someone little XXX, not oh my honey lovey poopy droppy batooty I am a homo haha ;) see ya my loves ttylbut that's not the case, they literally add in phrases they think a gay man would say.>EOPMy native tongue isn't even english.If it helps your judgement, I lived in Japan for a year.
>>480811671Best order is to go in order. But if you're not a fan of super old-school RPGs, you might want to try easing into something like 8 or 4.>>480811832Must be hard, living in Japan but not understanding the language.
>>480811832>At best you can argue that adding -chan is saying calling someone little XXX,>If it helps your judgement, I lived in Japan for a year.Are you not embarrassed about being an ALT for a whole year and not even picking up the most basic of basics?
>>480811938Hahaha why do you like making so many assumptions? Yearlong visas require you to speak japanese.I don't know why you are so defensive but I guess you must really like being called a little fag princey poo. Beddy beddy eyes for you too ;)
>>480812393You know, when you open this whole thing by saying you're playing the game in English, it becomes pretty obvious that you don't know a word of Japanese, buddy. 5 year olds can play DQ, man. The game even has a furigana option for them now.
>>480812393>I don't know why you are so defensive but I guess you must really like being called a little fag princey poo. Beddy beddy eyes for you too ;)Did you think that was going to make me mad or something?
>>480772674I'm doing the interlude stuff between parts 1 and 2.
LET THE DARKNESS CONSUME YE
I just don't enjoy super strong monsters. Feels more like luck based victories than earned ones, tempted to just turn it off and just go through the game on normal and try not to fall asleep from the difficulty drop.
>>480774667I bought it on PC and also couldn't get into it for the reasons you specified. Fuck, maybe I have to buy it on switch now
>>480810720DQ localization is always trash, but redditors defend it because it's "whimsical".
>>480814542Just turn it off. If you feel like the game is getting too easy, just run past monsters for the next dungeon and suddenly it'll be impossible to beat again.I don't know why anyone recommends a mode that literally just means you have to grind more. It doesn't make the game more interesting, it just means the level check is a few numbers higher.
>scorpion praying mantis desert boss thing>put it to sleep with Erik>decrease its defenses with Veronica>use Erik's move that goes mega damage on sleeping enemies>one trillion damage>boss dieshmm.
so the crossbow stuff is gone...that's a lot of seeds. did the rewards get moved elsewhere? if so, where?
>>480814897Turning it off also allows you to freely build your characters without having to always make them use the optimal weapons/skills.
>>480815817wait till erik gets that skill where he multiples himself
Anyone else playing with hard monsters difficulty? It kind of feels like bullshit sometimes.

>>480816253Use serena and sylvando and have them spam kabuff and hustle dance respectively. Use the cannon from the hawaii town to stun the boss so you can get in easy damage.
>>480816375i guess that means grinding because i don't have those skills yet ...
>>480816652How did you reach that part of the game at such a low level? Do you just avoid every enemy you see? I was level 22 when i got there.
>>480816375Dazzle also affects the tentacle adds if cast on the squid. Which really helps since the tenticles only attack.
There's a new image on sankaku.Check it out
>>480815817I've only played the 3ds version so far but that kind of stops working when bosses get 3 turns in a row so the debuff wears off before you can use camus again.
>>480816150I am and it hasn't been too bad outside of the spider. Nothing seems like it will reach arach's level of pain without employing the same kind of moveset.
>>480772674Dropped it before finishing the demo. How can a game so boring be so popular?
>>480814620The demo lets you play up until just before Gallopolis (desert area you get Sylvando in) and then you can transfer to the full game if you feel it's worth it after getting your 10-15hrs worth. I was skeptical until I played the demo and realised it was just more fun on switch. Completed the game moments ago and I think I might like it even more than 8 now whereas I was kind of disappointed by it on PC. The enhanced comfyness of handheld mode and extra content and enhancements make it a much better game.
>>480772674I finished it yesterday. Absolutely loved it, looking forward to playing it again later in the future. Change weapons and stuff, maybe play in German since I'm learning that. Serena is the best girl
>>480774161Where are they? Are there any super bosses?
>>480810949This is basically the sole thing that would make me buy it on Switch over PC or PS4
>>480772674I've completed all the trials, and everyone has the best gear I can get them at +3. I'm 103 hours into the game, I adore it.I've lost sleep because of this game.I still have all the Tickington content to do as well.
>>480811751>I'm learning the languageyou poor bastard
>>480821446probably the visit other worlds stuff
>>480772674At Puerto Valor and enjoying it. Kinda disappointed at the Tockington content though, they're basically glorified fetch quests. Though the 2D is a nice change of pace since I'm not planning on using that feature otherwise until a second playthrough.
I'm still pretty early in the game, only just gotten to Gondolia. I'd probably be a little further ahead if I didn't keep scouring for recipe books and playing around with the forge. Man I love that little thing.
>>480825348I enjoyed that forging process so much more than I expected to. I wanted a quick Skyrim-esque forging system where it just spat the stuff out, but actually doing it myself made it weirdly rewarding even if it's pretty shallow and very easy
Going pretty good so far. Just defeated Tentacular and reached the underwater city with the mermaids.
Having a ton of fun desu
>>480798381>says she sees eleanor like a mom and hero like her little brotherBlood relation isn't everything, you're just an incestfag
I'm at the last boss, and once again, it's another point where you have to grind.I really hate all the grinding in this shit. JRPGs in general, it's just awful game design. I don't want to farm trash mobs for 20 minutes just to beat the bullshit boss. These games only have 2 settings, impossible, and far too easy.Aside from that, good game.
>>480772674Just finished Gondolia, first time playing this (and any DQ game actually). Really enjoying the game so far, it's a really standard JRPG, but it executes it really well. How much longer until I get that cute ponytail martial arts girl?
Why is it so easy?
>>480772674is DQ11S worth a double dip if I already played it on the PS4?
>>480789119Where do you get these costumes?
>>480794512Have you you completed builders 1 yet?
Have never tried any DQ games before, can't wait to install DQ11.
>>480772674Nice. Just finished sad story with mermaid. Loving this game so far.
>>480772674Going wonderfuly, i'm about 6 hours in and it's all i play when i get back from work.
>>480828591It’s a very long game. One of if not the longest in the series, just so you’re aware. I personally would have recommended a different game for a first timer
>>480772674Just got to the school, which is where I stopped playing on PS4 last year. Looking forward to the rest of the game.
Is he autistic?

>>480772674Good, reached act 3 and just kinda exploring the world, grabbing shit
Where's the white key, is it part of the story? Already got the red one
I am playing with the first 4 Draconian Quests. I stopped in the battle against the two sluts in the Octogonia arena. I tried it first at level 22, but the battle is almost impossible and totally dependent on luck.I am now at level 25 and will try again, but considering that the character should have improved like 10%, it will probably still be heavily based on luck.Does anyone who has played with draconian quests have any tips for this battle? Any particular hero skills, for example? I'm using greatswords because I can't equip shields, so I obviously opted for the two-handed weapon. The only thing that helps me in this battle, for now is the greatsword parry skill.
>>480811479Im confused because English absolutely does have an equivalent feminine/gay way of speaking that many gay people use...
>>480811612>You can't represent someone talking like a flaming homo in English with a bit of grammar and some honorifics.you can though with the things like tone of voice and so on... which I think is what honorifics are anyway. Either way, you can.
>>480830756No, he can't get laid due to his duties
Even with draconian quests its way too easy. That and the shitty music are my only complaints though, everything else about it is very well done.
>>480772674Pretty slowly. I've only just recruited Jade and Rab. What I don't get though is that I haven't been power-leveling before getting them, but they joined at level 25 or something while my hero is at level 34.
>>480835916If you play with the quest to reduce EXP from weak monsters, lvl 25 is almost the limit you can get at Octogonia (unless you try to kill metal slimes, which in this part of the game is extremely time consuming).I'm guessing Jade joins the team after the MMA championship, right?
>play the demo for 2 hours>bored as fuckMy playthrough isn't going well
>>480835079>you can though with the things like tone of voice and so on... which I think is what honorifics are anyway.You should probably learn a little bit of Japanese on your own before commenting on it again. This isn't just wrong, it's basic-bitch "I've never seen a single subbed anime in my life" wrong.
>>480835916>What I don't get though is that I haven't been power-leveling before getting them, but they joined at level 25 or something while my hero is at level 34.You're joking, right? I got them at level 18, what the FUCK were you doing?
>>480836149Act 2 imo is when things really pick up
>>480811751Yup chinese and korean subtitles for the asian version.You do have to hack your 3ds and undo the region locks though.
>>480830756>what is this puff puff you speak of?
Still kinda sad that Veronica dies
>>480772674Question. About that find treasure ability that Erik has, how do I actually find the treasure. All I see is "there is X amount of treasure in the are" but no fucking idea on how to search for it.Is it an item/ability that I get later on?
>>480844646>how do I actually find the treasure>no fucking idea on how to search for itYou move around and you use you eyes? What kind of question is that?
>>480844646You have to look everywhere in the area for shiny spots and chests.If you're in a town, smash every small pot and barrel you see. Look through every dresser in houses.
>>480844646You need to keep looking. The only function of this spell is to let you know when you've found all the chests/pots with items in a certain area.Sometimes the magic does not seem to work right, however. Like in some areas of that 2D world of ticktongs or whatever they're called.
So I just got Rab and Jade. How deep into the game am I? 40%?
>>480844895More like 20%.
Does Veronica ever gets older again? The "oh my she´s a lolly but also isn´t so we get a child trash talking everyone how funny right?" bothers me a lot
>>480845270Look 7 posts above yours.
>>480845336Oh shit son. It´s Aerith all over again. A character I barely use will die and I´ll give zero fucks about it. Still rather have her grow up and be less annoying
>>480830756This was hilarious, Bring Arts Henrik when? The whole party and even the fucking leatherhead NPC has one
I've been playing the normal version on PC, a /somewhat/ toaster that can run newer titles on lowest settings with some dips. My game chokes out on certain costumes because the GPU is at it's limit, so I have a save after equipping the dancer costume straight after buying it, but anytime the outfit loads (battle, trying to change it because of the preview, cutscenes) I crash to desktop. So my save is dead. Kinda killed the game for me, don't wanna replay.
>>480845270Only briefly in a lategame cutscene and in one of her endgame attacks.
>>480844748>>480844810>>480844891I initially thought treasure meant sparkly spots but I thought that didn't make sense considering the numbers never matched up. Had no idea it was also pots. Thought the treasure would be buried or something.Anyway thanks
She'll be fine.
>>480844964aw shit. Nice, I've been wanting a long RPG to play. I'm been too used to games ending after 12 hours or something
>>480846024Play VII afterwards, it’s also quite lengthy
>>480846362VII is not just "quite lengthy", possibly the longest offline singleplayer RPG ever. I love it, but it's not something for everybody.
>>480845336But is that event that the guy mentioned without spoiler tags is definitive?
>>480773223It's weird that they did the same shit for world of Final Fantasy. They offer the upgrade version for like 15 bucks outside of the switch or something. Why can't they do the same thing reeee
>>480844140She may have died, but her cunny lives on in our hearts
if i play this game first will i be spoiled by quality of life and rendered unable to play the previous gameshappened to me with disgaea when i started with 3, and the gameplay of 1 and 2 is unbearably slow to me
>>480848176Nah, if you're not a shitter you can just win the fight and end the game early.
is Part 3 actually part of the story or just like a bonus? i keep seeing people refer to it as "the post-game"
>>480849280it is part of the story but way more open-ended and gameplay-focused
>>480816375WAIT YOU CAN USE THE CANNON?
>>480846995It isn’t all that much longer than 11, especially with the 3DS version
>>480849280It's when all the endgame stuff opens up.There is some story left to do and a new final boss but it's much more open ended.
I wanna marry Serena any tips?
>>480851408Remember she is a pure cinnamon bun at all times.
>>480851408Clear the Disciple's Trial and choose her as your life partner. The other four wishes suck.
>>480851408You have to do a dumb 4 part side-quest in the starting village first.
i havent even finished act 2 why did i enter this thread
>>480852506im still early (finishing up first visit to gondolia) in part 1, and i entered this threadimagine my surprise
>>480850093Did you not know anon?
Got it on pc with the music mod. Haven't started it because of factorio and starcraft 2

>>480855298No, I remember a cannon there but I thought it was nothing.
>>480845270>people still wants grown up Veronica to come backShe looks generic though..
>>480772674Got true ending and married Veronica.I want to lick and kiss all over Veronica's smooth skin while she calls me hubby
>>480852506How do I know which act I'm in? I just got the whale.
>>480860803You're in Act 2.Act 1 ended when Yggdrasil fell.
>>480860803The events of the world tree is the end of act 1. I haven’t reached act 3 yet but I’m assuming it will be a major event with a lengthy cutscene
>enemy does puff puff on Sylvando>it does nothing
>>480774574>>4807747268 on 3DS is a lot faster paced just FYI. Battle animations have a fast mode and enemies give more exp and gold.I played 8 on PS2 and liked everything about it except for how SLOW it felt at times, worse than FF9. I got pretty far in (Dhoulmagus) but got stonewalled by him and couldn't be fucked to grind that much since I was already avoiding most battles and getting through bosses using pure strategy and not levels.Played 8 on 3DS again with the sound restoration patch and it's a MUCH better experience. Only downside is there's less tension in dungeons because it's so easy to avoid enemies compared to when they were random encounters.
Anyone know how to complete the 3rd quest from the dq4 world? The questgiver doesn't give you the recipe to craft the quest item
NO KILL SABRECUBS!LEAVE EM ALOOOOOONE!
>>480772674Be real with me, /v/, is the new content worth spending $60 on?
>>4808667422d mode is fucking gorges and uses the old style combat and the new side stories are great too. If you've played I-IX you'll enjoy the tockle quests too when you revist key locations.
>>480866967Thanks for responding. The only thing turning me off 2D mode are random encounters, that mechanic has no place any more.
>>480867510That's literally the point of 2d mode. I can see why people won't like it though. I personally love it.
>>480816045i'm assuming it's a hidden ability. where is Divide?
>>480817179Well then you just use poison instead
>>480772674I got the PS4 version and finished it, would it be worth another playthrough on the Switch for the extra content if I enjoyed the game? What got added anyway aside the orchestral tracks? (Which alone is a selling point to me)
>>4808697522 hours of new stories where you play as your party members shortly after act 1, which includes my personal favorite moment in the game, I feel bad for people who played the base version. Massive QoL improvements, no more fucking horse bells, forge anywhere, buy forge shit in the menu instead of hunting for it, faster battles, extra difficulty options if you're a masochist, and full nip voice acting, although if you're playing in English it's probably not that useful given how localised the game is. Oh, and you can marry anyone.
Does the "no shopping" quest include forging materials?
How smooth and tight is veronica's cunny?
>>480772674Im in the mural's world and remember fighting some LMS here on pc before, was there actually a good spot there or did I just get lucky?
>>480870153Based, ty anon.
>>480868321>>480772674God, why is she so cute?
>>480869316Yeah, the only end boss that worked against in the 3ds version was the recolor of the octopus.
>>480870153I'd rate them as Rab's > Eric's/Jade's > Sylv'sSylv's is decent enough for him in itself, but it's a bit too long. Erik's fills in a bit for him, as does Jade's for her's and both are just long enough. Also Jade's exists to dismiss the idea of Booga having fucked her. Rab's is definitely the one with the best character content.
>>480873476Martina's is dead last, I like her but it really doesn't add much to her character, and it isn't funny as hell like Sylvia's. Camus is second, and Rou's is far and away the best.
>>480873769Sylv's is funnier but it's basically just him helping random people and building up to the end point with his troupe. It otherwise is the longest and that brings it down a lot for me. And really I don't feel like any of them particularly add to the characters aside from Rab's.
>>480772674Just finished up Michelle's questline and went to Nautica, now taking a break before deciding on which orb to go after next. Can't wait to get Jade's ending.
This is my first DQ game. I am casual and very bad at video games, feel free to laugh at me.This game is too fucking hard to me. I've barely started. Made it to Manglegrove Forest(???), enemies there are literally wrecking me, poisoning me all the time, ran out of antitode and can't afford any more. All draconian settings are obviously disabled. I bought all the vendor gear at Heliodor.What the fuck am I doing wrong? It can't be my build because it's the beginning of the game and I literally bought maybe one "talent tree" ability.
>>480875820I really can't understand anyone having trouble this early on. Just run past the enemies, nigga.
>>480875820If you’re that awful, grind on weak enemies until you’re a high enough level
>>480875820u know campfires let you full heal right?
>>480875929I tried that. Then the game forced me to find some kind of a demon jumping out of a chest. I NEED to do it to progress to turn the dog back into a human.This shit is literally impossible. The demon heals himself every third turn for more damage than I've totally dealt.
still waiting for it to fall below 50$
>>480876126make sure weapons are equipped + use medicinal herbs during the fight + have erik keep rubblerouser up (think of how much more damage it does total at the cost of a single turn, compared to the basic attack)
Question, do you guys think this game will go down in price in a couple months or is it likely to stay in the 40-50 dollar price range for a while?I used to be really good at figuring out the appreciation and depreciation of prices on vidya, but lately I just don’t know how to do it any more.
>>480876173>>480877093The switch is fully hacked. Take the 50 bucks you're saving for the game, scrape together another 150, and go buy a second Switch if you're terrified about getting banned from paid online.Or, spend that money on a piece of tinfoil and just hack your existing console. I will never understand the mentality of people who wait for fucking sales and shit.
Played 3 hours now, this game is for babies. I just want to fuck Veronica.
>>480877378not everybody pirates games genius
>>480877867What, you're a big enough piece of shit that you'll just wait until the stock is clogging up warehouses so you can get it for 5 bucks?At least pirates have the decency to play and talk about games during the launch window, i.e. the period where all games make most of their money. You're not doing anyone a service by waiting a few months, and if you're that poor, why not just pirate the game today and then buy it when it's "affordable" to clear your conscience?
>>480877867If you have a PC you might as well, also this game looks like a ripoff of dragon ball z.
>>480878339>also this game looks like a ripoff of dragon ball z
>>480878339SSGSS Vegeta is my favorite party member in XI
>>480878123>What, you're a big enough piece of shit that you'll just wait until the stock is clogging up warehouses so you can get it for 5 bucks?please show where I said that in my post
>>480772674Bretty good, I'm enjoying a second playthrough a lot more than I expected. Played about 9 hours and I'm almost done Galopolis.Just upgraded my PC though so it's gonna be forgotten for a bit.
vince did nothing wrong
Just got to Gondolia on my first ever Dragon Quest playthrough, enjoying the game but only in small bursts. Loving the party but a little disappointed that Sylvando doesn't fit well into my active four, his character is awesome. Enjoying the crafting and boss battles the most, the game actually puts up a fight (have the exp cap on) without being obnoxious. I'm sure once you know the series and can min/max a bit you have to turn on the difficulty mods but it's fine for me right now. The story is much much better than most JRPGs even if the story structure is very by the numbers, all the characters make the journey way more fun and rich. Can someone tell me about how far in the game I am? Want to get it done before November so trying to figure out a good pace.
>>48088311420-30% of the way through.
>>480883114You have a long way to go, Gondolia is still pretty early. Don't worry too much about Sylvando right away, he will eventually fit into his role well, he just needs time to get some of his great abilities first. At the very least early on, he can make a good Oompher.
>>480835000Japanese has stuff like more cutesy pronouns (typically feminine, but can be used by men), feminine ways of polite speech (constantly saying 'desu' for example in friendly company can be seen as feminine, unlike the less polite and more casual 'da', which is masculine)
>>480883114sylvando will become essential as soon as you get hustle dance.
>>480772674>Struggling on Draconian (Slayer of Sands and Tencatcular took hours of failed attempts)>Unlock Lightning Storm on Jade and Falcon Strike on Hero>Suddenly everything is smooth sailingFeels good to get over that early game hump
>>480774667This is me. On the switch it's so fucking comfy.
>>480851408always hold her hand whenever you're out in public and don't let her out of your sight, even for a second
>>480883924>using JadeNo wonder you're having a hard time.
>>480772674Just got to Puerto Valor. I'm thinking the upcoming part of the story might have something to do with Sylvando going by how he's acting. I hope I'm right because I love anytime he's on screen. Besides that, I'm loving the game. I over leveled, though, trying to get points for the skill tree. All the monsters run away from me. How much longer till I get Baumren's Bell?
i can't wait bros
>>480884567She's doing more for me right now than Erik. Lighting Thrust hits fairly often and is usually an easy 200 damage. I plan to replace her with Erik in act 2 once he gets Divide.
>>480867781no, the old-school sprites are the point of 2d mode. they could have easily put visible encounters in 2d mode (which plenty of jrpgs had in the snes days) but they didn't do it because of MUH TRADITION. even then, it wouldn't be an issue if the encounter rate wasn't insanely high with no good ways to mitigate it.
>>480883923Also protip: Hustle Dance scales with Charm
>>480873476for me it's sylvando > rab > hendrik > erik > jade. i really liked all of them though.
>>480886495holy water (and holy protection) are band-aids, not solutions. they wear off too quickly, use up resources and are tedious to keep spamming every few steps. a much better solution would be a slider like bravely default has. the ideal solution would be visible encounters.
>>4808863652d mode is supposed to play like the 2d games which had random encounters.
>>480886365No anon. 2d mode is made to play like classic DQ. That includes 2d sprites AND random encounters.
>>480886892the 2d games didn't have pep powers or the fun-size forge either, but they're both still in 2d mode. if those don't hurt the nostalgia, visible encounters wouldn't either.
jade is mai waifu
>>480888059We know, Booga.
>>480888059I want to exchange love letters with her and hold her hand!
>MFW the bosses in act 2 going 2-3 times a turnThis shit is pissing me off. Literally breaks the game. Stuck at the Mount Huji dragon because of this.
>>480888496That’s nice, Eleven
>>480888496See the post above yours.
>>480888503that's literally nothing compared to other games.
How is this thread still up
>>480888496Wow it’s almost like it was fate what with you being a prince of Dundrasil and her being a princess of Heliodor that you were bound to fall in love with each other and be married happily ever after
>>480889805It's just Veronica trying to look intimidating but coming off as adorable.
>>480889390how is that even remotedly enjoyable?
>>480865390You weren’t supposed to grind, you were supposed to git gud
>>480889761It's almost like the plot of a previous DQ game.Reminder that Eltrio died all alone.
>>480870153That was all new content? That Rab story was pure kino and felt absolutely essential. I loved getting the bear to fight for Dundrasil in the Octogonia and then later he shows up to the celebration party. The way everything flowed from everyone's solo adventures, to you getting the band back together and then ultimately finding out what happened at the World Tree was smooth and payed off amazingly. I'm shocked that that wasn't how it originally played out.
>>480890449Did you see Hendrik's yet? His is great.
Wait can you find platinum king slimes in ruby path of doom like in dq9?
>>480890534I don't think so. Just finished the Hoto drama with the dragon. Was pretty messed up, actually.
>>480890449Well, that content didn't exist.Also, those Forge improvements might seem too much for now, but forging in Act 3 was tiring. A lot of recipes open up using materials from all over the damn place.
Alright I hate to ask but I'm stumped. Where are the tockles in Puerto valor and Gondolia? My list says they're available but I can't find them.
Draconian settings Reduced Exp and Strong Enemies.Anything else? The others seem a bit too retarded.
>>480892183The list will show passwords in areas you've been to before, but in the general order that you can obtain them.You can't obtain the Puerto Valor or Gondolia tockles until the postgame when you get the Ultimate Key.
>>480893425well shit, that's actually what I thought. Damn I hate being right
>>480894083>Yes>YesWeird how this dialogue box only has 1 option.
>>480894083God Eleven just grab her and kiss her already, hold her close and tight and swear to never let go
any vids out yet of all the S specific scenes? im not double dipping after beating the game 3 months ago
>only heterosexual marriage options are Dull as Dishwater, Duller than Dishwater, Kind-Of Sister, and Little Girl
>>480894083So that's why the Japs love this series
I'm at the second casino, just got my shit stomped in hard by Jinxed Jade. I just upgraded all my weapons and armor though so I'm primed for a second try.
>>480895952You're in for an unpleasant surprise.
>>480896003>>480896086I already know, I got spoiled.I'll beat em eventually, I picked stronger enemies for a challenge damn it
It really seems like they give you the best possible party right away in the second part. Am I correct?
>Jinxed Jade only uses the Allure skills on the Luminary in battle>attacks everyone elsewhat does this mean
>>480896492Just load up on sage's elixir and spam quadraslash, helm splitter, and pearly gates.>>480896642She kept using puff puff on Rab, and he fell for it. Not sure who's more perverted.
>>480896837Weird, both times I fought her on pc and switch she only used the allure skills on the luminary and hit everyone else with the spear
>>480895767>game repeatedly hammers it in that Jade is like your sister even when trying to do a romance with herI can't tell if they did this to try and dissuade you from her, as she is the least favorite girl of the devs, or if it was to pander to incest fetishes.
>>480855298Not him but yeah i knew.
>>480897237>, as she is the least favorite girl of the devsIs that why she never does anything outside of two or three scenes?
>>480897237Cause they didn't write Jade or any real romance into the game originally. Giving the other marriage options is a tacked on extra that fans wanted but the devs didn't account for, or likely didn't give a flying fuck about. So they just added in some basic stuff that sticks with each characters background.
Why did they have to make whips and claws so shitty?
>>480897846>most irrelevant character in the party who does nothing aside from said two or three scenes>worst party member>of all the new character stories/sidequests her's had the least effort put inProbably so.>>480898057It's not like Gemma was any better really. She was just tacked on to satisify Horii's childhood friend fixation.
>>480897237Why is it that Jade is considered to be "like your sister" and Gemma considered to be a "childhood friend" when the two are basically in the same position?
>>480898671Gemma has that adorable accent though, at least in the english dub
50 hours in but I've been dicking around a lot, just got the Magic Key.
>>480898671>of all the new character stories/sidequests her's had the least effort put inWhat makes you say that?
>>480792018I'm enjoying the game way more now that I'm picking everyone's turn.
>go to pet dog>serena runs in between the MC and the dog and pushes his model back>MC rubs Serena's ass instead of petting the dogi wish i recorded that
>>480898893Because it's by far the worst, adds nothing to her or the story and is totally irrelevant. All you learn from it is that Booga had a girlfriend. Like Jade herself, it could be removed from the game and you'd miss absolutely nothing.
>get to act 3>now nobody aside from eleven does any damage
>>480899337They get their stats back.
>>480834657I explored Dundrasil early and made Drasilian Armor. Really takes the edge off warrior chick's attacks. Then you only have to worry about Frizzle
>>480899432Is it too far into act 3?I just got Cetacea back.
>>480898671>of all the new character stories/sidequests her's had the least effort put inMore than Veronica's or Serena's chapters,at least.
>>480899759Almost right after.
>>480899748Forgot to mention I beat them at level 18
>>480899797Veronica and Serena already get twice the screentime as anyone else though, so it evens out.
>>480898671>It's not like Gemma was any better really. She was just tacked on to satisify Horii's childhood friend fixation.That's why I said they didn't write any real romance. Gemma marriage was tacked on even in the original release. So they tacked on the other girls cause it was asked for but they did nothing to really setup a romance with anyone. It's kinda baffling how half assed the marriage stuff in 11 is when DQ8 remake went out of it's way to fill a popular fan request of being able to marry Jessica. And they put some content in to make it work as well as full on added her wedding scene and interacting.
>bought the PC version>decide to pirate Switch version to continue my progress>go to transfer save file like I've done before for FFXHD>turns out save files are encrypted on all platforms so you can't transfer themwhy the fuck would they do this?
>when half the party gets stunned and the other half gets paralyzed >and then the boss can slam the ground for 200+ damage
>>480898893It’s because they were shoehorned into explaining how the hell she even ended up in the position of working for Booga with their shitty writing for her from the first game that was probably from lack of creativity and couldn’t think beyond bunny suit when she has the most opportunity to have her character explored or have her be tied further into the luminary’s past and history considering how close she is and how badly her life was affected and destroyed by the antagonist
>>480899974Veronica maybe, Serena takes the longest to rejoin the party in Act 2, and her overall role in the story outside of late Act 2 is pretty much just "Veronica's Sister".
>>480900096>pepenigger us a complete fucking retard who cant use googlePlease kill yourself bottom feeder
>>480899309>All you learn from it is that Booga had a girlfriend.And that he’s a big pussy and would never proceed past 0.01st base
>>480899974Veronica spends half the game as dust.
>>480900061They definitely put more effort into Jessica, but it still felt forced as fuck even there. But then, nearly any game with romance options has one girl that you are pushed towards picking. Usually the most bland one.>>480900351And when she isn't she is in the forefront of nearly every cutscene.Honestly the male characters are so much better written in this game. Veronica is an obnoxious brat who is shoved down your throat constantly, and the rest are non-characters except Serena briefly in Act 2.
>>480900267there is no way to transfer the save currently, I did google it.now apologize for calling me rude names.
>>480900735I said kill yourself you bottom feeding nigger
>>480900889only if you apologize first you absolute effing know-it-not
>>480900695>They definitely put more effort into Jessica, but it still felt forced as fuck even there.I'd say Medea felt just as force as well. While she's built into the original game, you have little interactions with her in building a relationship and some of those are optional. Even then it's so quick you don't really get an investment.
YO CAN I MARRY THIS MERMAID?
>>480902889Anon, I have some bad news and some tragic news.
>>480903017Don't tell me it's all going to end in death
Please tell me there's good yuri of Frysabel and Krystalinda.
Wanna start a ng+ though I didn't bother getting any of the extra outfits the first time throughIs it too late to get them being in the postgame?
>boss killing Hero before turn 1>set up next attempt and everything goes much more smoothly>Desperate HitI like the Draconian Quests
I just reached the Gondolia. I've been keeping all the non Hero teammates on 'Fight Wisely' so far. Is that gonna bite me on the ass soon?
So all the music in the switch version is orchestrated? I heard something about only a few tracks
Why do people still talk about this game?It's been out for 5 years already.
>>480904748They're actually pretty smart, so I don't think so.
>>480904791Not all music, yeah. Sylvando's theme is unchanged, for example.
>>480899337That's not going to last long.Erik and Veronica in particular just shit out damage like it's nothing in the postgame.
>>480904624nothing is missable, except if (for some dumb reason) you want the "number of enemies defeated" bestiary entry to have a certain value for a certain enemy; but some things are much easier to do at certain times in the story
Should I play this game or Xenoblade?
>>480905354That's great to hear. Thanks
What's the use of me building Veronica's character if she dies?
>>480905515play dq on a second switch while you wait for xenoblade to play itself
>To be continuedIs the end game worth the time investment? I really very much liked the game but I feel satisfied with the ending.
>>480905750You get her back in the postgame.
>>480905893Thanks. What exactly happens in the postgame? I read in the thread that after killing the last boss, there is another boss or something. But does it have anything to do with the real story of the game, or is it more or less a sandbox?
>>480905839you have to continue if you want to finish all the tickington stuff. the plot in act 3 does get pretty retarded, but there's lots of fun boss fights.
>>480906387>all the tickington stuffOh I completly forgot about it after trying it for 5 minutes, checking the absurd encounter rate and getting the fuck out of it.Maybe now that I'm overleveled it won't be so frustrating.
>>480906515many of the tickington quests don't even involve combat at all. and yes, when you're this far into the game, you should be leveled enough that most of the ones with random encounters shouldn't be an issue.
>>480906263The hero goes back in time to stop Yggdrasil's fall and prevent Veronica from dying. He succeeds, but he ends up giving the real dark lord a new chance at reviving itself as it was prevented from doing so in the original timeline. This time, it succeeds, and shit goes down.There's a ton of new optional sideplots to complete, areas to explore, and bosses to kill.
>>480891505hendrik's story is in act 3, so you have some good stuff to look forward to.
>>480773223>Switch PROThis isn't going to happen..
>>480878123>>At least pirates have the decency to play and talk about games during the launch windowWhich is thrown out the window when they brag about how they pirated the game because lolfuck Nintendo. Not defending the other fag but you're equally full of shit.
I like exploring in 2D mode, but I cannot stand combat in 2D mode. I just did the DQ4 quest where you slide on arrows to get to Flamethrower monster and DQ7 rainbow mines. Oh god, fucking hated the combat and encounter rate.
>>480772674Just got to Gallopolis. Playing Stronger Monsters in 2D, so I’m really being forced to take my time. Really fun though, but it’s not a priority since I played the whole game on PS4
Do Sylvando/Hendrik get extra skill trees in Act 3?Theirs seem much smaller than the expanded ones of the rest of the cast.
>>480909409yes they do. there's even a subplot and boss fight devoted to expanding their skill trees together.
I just got to not-VeniceDoes it get better or what
I just watched two people commit sudoku in this game. Did not see this coming.
>>480910507Hi, welcome to Dragon Quest enjoy your stay
>pep power animations no longer playing, not even for ones I haven't used beforewhat fucking button did I press
Can you turn on harder monsters during the game or only at the beginning?
>>480912190Only at the start.
Got the second ending. Kinda rushed it at the end since I have a ton of games on the backburner to get around to but I really enjoyed it.
>>480904947Because it's getting more exposure with ever with the Switch port, Smash, and DQ Builders 2?
If I get Builders, should I get 1 or 2?
>>480904318A few days ago, someone posted some pages of them with big tits double teaming the Hero.
Where are the new target locations for crossbow kid
>>480913762They actually removed that sidequest.
>>480905515The one with the better dance choreography.
I'm playing VII instead. It's really fun. I actively want to keep playing instead of actively wanting to quit like in VI.
>>480911038please I need answers>>480914086cute bloomers
>>480875820>>480876126Are you here anon? I'm curious if you found success or not. I want to give you more tips if you hadn't.
>>480911038>>480914396Did you check the settings?
>>4809135472 but 1 is fantastic, too.
>>480894083oh for fucks sake this isn't even one of those BUT WE AREN'T RELATED BY BLOOD SO IT'S COOL memes you are literally unrelated in the strictest sense of the word. also>not wanting to fuck and marry your nee-san
>>4809135471. 1 has a better story, and 2 also has so many quality of life improvements that it makes 1 virtually unplayable despite having a lesser quality story.
Playing DQ8 on 3ds. I just take that monk guy in party. Wonderful game, i almost emerge in fairytale.
>>480914040>"We're planning to streamline the Crossbow Kid quest">Just removes it entirelyThanks Squeenix
>>480914939"I'm like your sister!""Except I first met you a couple weeks ago, not counting when I was an infant."
