Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Between updates, I returned to the Medal King to pick up our Hat of Happiness. Any of our casters could make good use of its special effect, but seeing as the ladies have Golden Barrettes, Cristo has an Iron Helmet, and Brey still has a Leather Hat, I'm letting Brey have it. It takes his defense pow...

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

I did a bit of testing ( you can reliably get Nara to cast Sleep and Sleepmore in the first several rounds of the Balzack fight on Normal tactics, and I could probably have gone with Cristo and Beat too ), and while I'm not 100% sure, it does look like it resets monster knowledge as well. Also, I di...

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Huh... Somehow I've always held the notion that all cursed gear in the series caused you to skip turns, and it never occurred to me to test or question it. Welp, scales off my eyes, that's good info, thank you!

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Yeah, that notion of casting Outside and leaving the wagon crew in the dungeon feels like it could be exploitable for something, but unless you're on a challenge run and want to go through the game with only certain characters, I can't think of what benefit there might be. And I never really conside...

Well then, that certainly explains his propensity for trying the same plan over and over again even after it's been repeatedly proven that it won't work.

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

I uploaded a fixed version of the video and images for the dream sequence; it turns out the game uses a quirk of the NES' horizontal sprite limit to display this scene correctly, but I usually have my emulator disable that limit so it doesn't interfere with screenshots. P/Saro is so casual about the...

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Before we raid Keeleon Castle again, let's see about opening a few doors with our new Magic Key. We could technically unlock the Santeem treasury and a mysterious building in Surene, but we'll get to those when we revisit the area later on. Every other Magic Key door we've seen yet is in Endor, conv...

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Dang, that is a nice read, and rather amazing timing for it too, heheh. In the end, there's a weird give-and-take going on with the AI design, in the sense that the game is not hard enough to let the AI show it has the potential to be brilliant (or to occasionally simulate brilliance), but if it was...

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

The nearest is half an hour away; there are six in my town but it's like they've all been carefully placed so none of them are close enough to me to ever be worth the walk. There's no way I'm going on a 1 hour round trip for whatever it is they've got.
