    Well then let’s hope we can continue doing writing to the capacity that we want.

    Btw, I noticed a weird bug (I think?) in DQII, and I’m not sure if it’s specific to the mobile port or if it’s something universal. When using zoom or a chimaera wing, I can warp to Tatengel, even though it’s still quite a bit until I can get my ship and actually get there. Have you ever had something like this happen? And it’s consistent, I can still do it, it’s not a one time thing.

    Sorry it took me so long to reply. I haven’t had much time to actively participate here lately.

    Yeah, handheld aversion is one thing, but then there’s also the fact that the 3DS is being phased out in the US, unlike in Japan where it’s still thriving. Makes me worry we might not get Persona Q2 because of this. Still, I’m kinda hoping Nintendo will step in again to release DQXI on the 3DS too. As much as I love XI so far, I know I’d be able to put so much more time into it if I were able to play it on a handheld.

    As for DQX, apparently it wouldn’t be that hard to make it single player since reportedly you could effectively solo the experience becayse it’s designed as a DQ first and MMO second. Getting it without the online stuff is preferable to not getting it at all since apparently it’s really good, but then I can’t help but feel we’d be losing something really cool if we didn’t get the online content. It’s be like all the inaccessible online stuff and multiplayer in DQIX again.

    Speaking of, I’ve reached Alltrades Abbey in DQIX and am almost done getting everybody to level 15 on every job I have available so far (got armamentalist and gladiator, so I have eight in total), all for those sweet extra skill points. I forgot how fun metal slime hunting can be, especially if instead of random encounters you have symbol encounters and can actually see the metal slimes before you engage them In DQXI I have five party members now, so progress is slowly but surely being made. It’s still good. I’ve also beaten DQI again on a fairly low level (18), so I’m pretty happy about that since I was over 20 the last time. Now I’m playing II. Got the prince of Cannock on my side, did everything I could on the northernmost continent and have traveled south in search of the princess.

    Don’t be fooled into thinking gaming is the only thing I’ve been doing in my spare time though. I’ve started writing my story for the contest. Last weekend I got a pretty solid idea for a short so I hope it’ll be to your liking once it’s done

    So apparently SE is considering localizing DQX as an offline game

    Not entirely sure how I feel about that tbh

    Yeah I know. I’m still brainstorming for it. For the first time I really don’t have any set vision for a story. It’s kknda exciting

    So one of my new year’s resolution was to have a beta draft for my book ready by the end of the year. With three months left, that is looking extremely unlikely right now. And I’m kind of mad about that

    I definitely haven’t fought him, but I think he’s in there. I’ve decided that I’ll be delving into all the post game content the next time I play all the DQs so I’ll definitely let you know for sure.

    In the meantime, please enjoy:

    What is the Divingon? If it’s there, it’s probanly under a diffeeent name because the mobile version uses the current DQ translation conventions

    Meanwhile, I learned that the reason I never played Pacheesi is because the phone release had it removed

    Yeah, the main game really doesn’t require it, but I want to do the optional content this time around, since apparently that’s where the meat of the game is. It’s a shame the multiplayer isn’t active anymore, or that I don’t have anyone with the game locally I feel like I’m missing a big part of the intended DQIX experience this way.

    Ok, so now I can reply more seriously

    Seems like you got a pretty good grip on what you want to do with your DQIII party, though I personally never had to give it too much thought and the game went pretty easily anyway. I followed your advice and, if I recall correctly, I made my warrior a thief for a while as well, my priest used the scroll to become a sage while my Mage went the gadabout route to get there. I’m assuming you’re not using sages this time because they’re broken? Because they are.

    Torneko’s chapter was unexpectedly fun, I remember. I also wonder sometimes if I would have a better impression of the game when I attempt it again. I’ll definitely get here eventually.

    As for my progress, I now have four party members in DQXI and they’re all great. The way the party works and their banter is very reminiscent of VII, and it’s very much a good thing, but I won’t say more lest I spoil the fun for you. Haven’t had the chance to play DQI but I have restarted DQIX because I felt a craving for its job system and I’m shocked at how much fun I’m having. I’m still near the beginning - don’t even have Patty’s Party Planning available yet - but with how let down I was the first time overall, I don’t think I noticed how charming the game really is. In that regard at least, it’s still a DQ through and through. I think it was a mistake playing it immediately after VIII last time - the character interactions and exploration from that game set up expectations for something IX just really doesn’t focus on and it’s much better approaching it in a way that sets you up for appreciating it for what it is.

    I’ve also made some planning for my party. For my hero, I wanted to focus on swords and shields, going through Minstrel and Warrior before making him more focused as a Gladiator. I also want a thief who will later become a Ranger/Armanentalist focused on bows, a priest with Spears as their main focus, becoming a paladin later, and a mage with wands that will also pick up some priest skills to later become a sage.

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Arc the Lad II

by Wolf Kanno on 03-27-2018 at 10:53 PM
You know the drill by now...


One of my all time favorite publishers in the 90s for video games was Working Designs. It was a company that actually tried to get a lot of cool JRPGs released in the West long before the actual JRPG boom in the last years of the decade. I've already spoken about their most high profile title they ever worked on, Lunar: The Silver Star Story,

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Final Fantasy III

Blah blah blah Top 100 blah blah blah too many good games to list. Blah blah blah, games that weren't good enough for my list but still excellent nonetheless.


Of the Classic series within Final Fantasy, FFIII was the last one for me to play, partly cause I didn't emulate very often and partly because I had hoped SE would come to their senses and re-release this title.

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: I am Setsuna

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2018 at 06:38 AM
So I did my Top 100 last year, and this year, I'm focusing on a few entries that didn't make the cut for one reason or another. I'll start off by saying that most of the games mentioned in this blog series are all worth playing, they simply just haven't enraptured me enough to place them on my List. I started with Demon's Souls, and i have about 24 more entries to go. I know I said it would be like four or five, but giving myself some time to think about it made me realize how many great games I

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Demon's Souls

by Wolf Kanno on 01-22-2018 at 03:23 AM
So as many people know, last year I did my Top 100 Games list, but as usual, there were a lot of games I loved that just didn't make the mark for one reason or another. I didn't really want to make a thread about it though, and figured the Blog would suit it better because there is likely only five or six games I wish to highlight here. I also feel annoyed I never use the Blog feature as much since it feels like a better platform for these types of discussions. In addition to these blogs, I do plan

Mononoke Hime

by Wolf Kanno on 11-08-2017 at 01:25 AM

A few days ago, I went to a midnight showing of Princess Mononoke at the Esquire Theater downtown. The very same theater I went to watch it the first time back in 1999 during it's initial release in the States. At that time, I was an avid anime fan who would consume whatever I could find as the medium was only in the beginning phases of it's explosive popularity in the 2000s, so the prospect of being able to watch an anime flick in an actual movie
