Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

Ha, I had a write-up about it ready to go in the next update, but TA's explanation is actually a lot better, since I didn't know about the bit where the Yarn can't spawn if Don Mahone has the Cloth completed. Good info, thanks mang. It's kind of crazy to me how many unique events happen in this game...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

While I busy myself with mopping up the Star Crest tower, let's have a word about the game's structure so far. A lot of the time, when you're thinking about a JRPG, you're thinking about going to a village, getting directed to a dungeon, beating a boss at the end of the dungeon, earning some plot, t...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

I think it may just be meant to be a drop of water, but yeah, it does look way too similar to a slime to be a coincidence. The crests use the same icons as the lottery, and slimes feature prominently in casinos in later games, so I'd say there are good odds it's intentional.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

I actually somehow only just learned about those today! But I want play the game as designed, for good and for ill, so, nah, I won't make use of them. I wouldn't judge anyone who did though; if there's one game in the series that justifies taking every sneaky advantage you can get, this is it.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

So, doors to open. There have been golden doors or jail doors practically everywhere we've been to since the start of the game, so the plan is to go back to Midenhall and retrace our steps all the way to Lianport, then to Alefgard and the bottom floor of Charlock. This will also give us an opportuni...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

Before Dragon Warrior, I knew yes, no, hello, bye, press start and game over. By the time I started English classes at school (must have been some time between DW2 and DW3), I already had a lot of the basics and a vocabulary that blew my teacher's mind. Apart from a few points of grammar I hadn't re...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

Before we start today, I'd like to mention how pleasantly surprised I am at how well the game has been flowing so far, and at how little grinding we've had to do. There has never been a spot where every path forward was blocked by enemies that outclassed us by an order of magnitude, where the only s...

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

If two people with severe, untreated mental illness come together, with one of them impressionable and meek, and the other charismatic and abusive, once a long enough period of time has elapsed I could see both sharing the same delusions. Heck, they're almost certainly in a perverse feedback loop.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

When I was considering starting this LP series, the thought of Rhone got me this close to going "screw it, I'll just do DW4".

But I will power through... for the Internet!

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

Yeah, it's sub-optimal at best. There really should have been a sort of key ring item that told you what's on it when you try to USE it.

Yeah, I don't think too highly of him, but compared to his predecessor Stephen "The Yawning Abyss" Harper, the man who, if he looks you in the eye, makes you unable to laugh or cry until the next new moon, he's definitely a step up.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

http://lpix.org/3139623/windtower4b.png So that's all of the tower that used to contain the Cloak of the Wind. Going up the obvious central shaft is basically a mistake! In terms of size and complexity, I'd say it's a fair bit more involved than Garin's Grave in DW1. Considering that was that game'...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

Yeah, pretty much agreed on all counts. I got a bunch of gameplay in the can right now and I'm surprised at how much fun I'm having. Maybe I appreciate it more because I've just done DW1, but it definitely has a decent amount of depth to its moment-to-moment gameplay, and despite being up to episode...
