    Doubt X has it for your character, but I'm sure it pops up as a sidequest somewhere. It was just an interesting observation I noticed as I play through IV. My first actual exposure to the plotline was in VII though. I think once my Halloween gaming is over, I'm going either finish my playthrough of DQVII I started last year, or I may bust out DQVI on an emulator.

    Have we discussed the fact that Hori is obsessed with the star-crossed lovers love child trope? I Mean DQIV, VII, VIII, and I'm sure a bunch of other games all use this story angle for the main characters. I've been playing DQIV on the side for mobile gaming and was just reminded that this was the story angle for the main hero.

    In DQ news, I've begun collecting the orbs and I've explored most of the world. I'm getting ready to take down Orochi in Zipangu. I actually did beat this boss already but with only one character surviving. This was because I got impatient trying to level my team up to do all my Job Class shenanigans. So shenanigans it now, as I have my whole team up to level 20 now in their new professions. My Warrior turned into a Dealer, and is now a Thief who is way more sturdy and powerful than she has any right to be. My Cleric became a Fighter who has a struggled a little bit due to higher XP needs but I always forget the class is pretty fragile in defense. My Mage turned Warrior on the other hand is doing very well for herself.

    I'll probably take down Orochi and the Boss Troll with this team before switching classes again. I also have the Punkrock Ring which has given my Hero way better stat growth across the board with the Solitary personality. I always forget that much like FFIII, the stats that are the most important are the ones that affect HP/MP growth. So this new personality is helping to offset my Hero's weak wisdom stat. Overall though, I'm having a blast and really relishing how utterly enjoyable this game is.

    I'd probably stick to the original, though I'm sure I'd be using the handheld element more. I just like having the option.

    Yeah, I've been impressed with how much love the Switch gets.

    Neato, I would probably still pick them up for PC but its nice to know they got ported over.

    I haven't figured out which story I'm going to do yet. I was going to use the one I was going to submit for publication, but I'm now reconsidering since lots of publishers tend to frown upon using stories that have been seen before.

    I get that, but for me, it's nostalgia. Was really weird having all the spell and class name changes and even weirder when the remakes started changing town names on me.

    Good that Torment is almost finished. I have not really doing much gaming wise. Life's been a little hectic so I've been working on smaller projects to keep my head straight instead.

    It will always be Dharma Temple for me. Alltrades Abbey is just too much of a mouthful to say. Same deal with Kandar the bumbling crook whom the new translations give him a new name of Robbinood despite the fact Kandar is his actual Japanese name.

    Honestly, the best part of this translation I'm playing is that it's based off the GBC one and thus the old translations for all the spell and city names are intact. I didn't realize how much I disliked the new and sometimes accurate translations until I started playing this version.

    I reached Dharma and changed my Warrior into a Dealer so I could both get their useful skills and also to even out her stats a bit. Having most of my party being woman is really useful since I have the Garter Belt accessory which gives them the Sexy Personality. That personality gives you the best stat growth in the game. Once she gets to lv. 20, I plan on switching her to Thief to finally raise up her Agi and Luck as quickly as possibly before I plan on switching her back to Warrior for endgame. The Thief skills will also be useful in the long run as well. Though I must say that I'm really digging the Dealers ability to find Gold randomly in battle and raise enemy drop rates.

    My male hero is using a rosary to give him a Romantic personality to finally build up his lackluster Int. and Agi, stats. I'm debating about just permanently changing his personality to Smart with one of the books, but Valiant is still a pretty awesome base personality in terms of just raw strength. I may have to pick up the ship and head to the Pirates Den just so I can grab the Punk Ring and get access to the Solitary Personality type since it will probably give him the best stat growth I can until I find either the Gold Necklace or the Gold Beak to get the Lewd or Lucky personality types.

    My Cleric and Mage are going to stay in their respective classes until around Lv. 24 by which point the Mage will learn Twinhits and Boom, while my Cleric will learn Vivify. After that, I may switch them to Warrior and Fighter respectively. I'll then switch them both to Jesters and finally to the Sage class.

    Not too bad, I'm almost to Dharma Temple, which is when my job class changing shenanigans will begin. I'm in DQ India currently trying to get Pepper so I can finally have a ship.

Part of your world

by Fynn on 06-06-2017 at 04:37 PM
So there's this nagging issue I've had for quite some time now. It's a pretty abstract issue but one I think is pretty interesting and perhaps even important to share nonetheless. For many reasons, it has only become more pronounced recently.

As some of you may know, I want to be a writer. I try to do as much writing as I can. I even do writing for a living, though as an SEO copywriter, it's not exactly that I have an opportunity to spread my creative wings as part of what keeps giving

On FFVII (part of my Fmarathon rant)

by Fynn on 11-23-2016 at 11:16 AM
Decided this is worthy of being a blog-post, since it turned out to be a much bigger rant than I expected and I'm not sure the marathon's audience is really there for that kind of stuff

Frustrations of the writerly sort

by Fynn on 07-01-2016 at 11:13 AM
So there's this thing I've been struggling for quite some time. I don't want to call it a "writer's block" because it kind of seems like an excuse for being lazy. And it usually doesn't last long. This is something that's been eating at me for a long time.

I just kinda feel that I can't write anymore.

I mean, I still write articles for the site sometimes and I write other texts at my work, but it seems like, creatively, I've dried up. I'll come up with ideas

On story expectations

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 11:57 AM
So this is kind of a general discussion, but the general rant I have is based on three popular 3DS RPGs: Bravely Default, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Shin Megami Tensei IV. Sorry if this is chaotic, as I'm just writing this as it comes into my mind. Also, spoilers from the three games abound.

All of those games were very well received, though for different reasons. SMT is kind of here to serve as a neutral ground, as the evaluation of its story is pretty divided, whereas the consensus

Character Appreciation: Junpei Iori

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 10:37 AM
This is in no way an idea I stole from Pumpkin, no siree.


Junpei Iori is a character from the Persona franchise. He first appears in Persona 3 and all of its subsequent releases as a playable party member. He becomes a social link character as well in the female path of Persona 3 Portable, though he isn't date-able. He is also playable in
