Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Yeah that's kinda nuts. In at least a limited sense, both FF1 and DQ3 were building on top of DQ2. Party customization was definitely in the JRPG zeitgeist back then.

Well, okay, FF1 was building on top of both DQ2 and D&D, heh.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

I remember once I got in a fight with a friend about which game was more iconic, Final Fantasy or Dragon Warrior (the originals for NES) and it came down to "Dragon Warrior has final boss music and Chaos just uses the normal fight theme like a chump" Gah, it's such a cool theme too, despi...

Re: Obituaries

I mostly watch D&D streams these days, the likes of Dice, Camera, Action and The C Team, but I do have a few video-game-related youtubers and twitch streamers I occasionally follow, any of which I would drop immediately if they turned out to be some flavor of shithead. Well, I say "watch&qu...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

http://lpix.org/3125541/DW1-010-004.png Erdrick's Sword is worth a whopping 40 Attack Power, which is 12 more than the Flame Sword. Considering that the strongest enemies we've seen so far, Blue Dragons, have 53 to 70 HP, this is huge. Other than that, the Sword has no special powers, it's just Rea...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

They should really have put an NPC somewhere with the information about Erdrick's Armor's swamp resistance instead of expecting you to notice as you leave Hauksness so the player knows there's a way to not hate getting the Token. Kind of a weird oversight in a game that otherwise is really good abo...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

The tablet we found in the cave between Tantegel and Garinham mentioned that we'd need three items. Chances are, these are the Staff of Rain, the Stones of Sunlight, and Erdrick's Token. If that's the case, we're in business. It does raise something of a question. Erdrick built a rainbow bridge to t...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Hmm... If I was anyone else this would be a great idea but I gotta admit the thought of it stresses me out a fair bit. I mean, we have The Best People around so that's not the issue, and I can handle collaboration if it's a job or something like that, but I need what leisure/hobby time I have in a d...

Dang, nice work Mothra! It's an honor! :grin: Well, that's why I asked. 2 and 3 are much bigger games and it's a lot of work, work that I don't know if I want to do or would be able to deliver on once started, so if you're planning to do it then that's kind of a load off, because you're doing a real...

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

Yeah, we've had our share of various far-right shitheads for a long time, especially at least since Adrien Arcand started his vile work in the late 20s.

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

For all the vaunted and deserved shit that grinding gets, it's only when the double grind falls apart that grinding -really- becomes intolerable for me. As long as you're saving up for new gear AND leveling at the same time at a reasonable (even if slow) pace, I will happily kill the same thing ove...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

Before we start today, I'd like to go in detail on something that I haven't really mentioned yet: encounter rate and terrain types. Dragon Warrior rolls its encounter chance every step you take, depending on what kind of tile you're entering. This is very different than with certain other games, tha...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior!

About a year ago, I tried playing through the DQ1 SNES remake as I've never actually played through a single DQ game to completion other than Rocket Slime. And I still haven't, as I ended up getting sidetracked and not returning to the game, but I got what felt pretty damn deep into it! So I'm curi...
