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

http://lpix.org/3319388/4-018-001.png We're headed for the western cave where we've heard our father's least murderous pupil has taken refuge... but I went back to town off-camera to buy a Wing of the Wyvern. We don't have the Iron Safe anymore, better be careful! A battle against a pair of Monjars...

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

Oh they're vibrant AF. There's no doubt that the monster/character designs have a lot to do with the DQ look we recognize today, but the palettes for the terrain in the first games count for a lot too.

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

There was a dollar store two blocks away from my apartment; it opened two years ago and went out of business last spring. It was convenient for the occasional odd and/or end (wouldn't buy food there though, dang), but after reading this, I'm glad that it's gone and that even my very-low-income neigh...

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

Yeah, it's easier to cheese in the remakes where you have access to the bottomless Bag; my previous playthrough was on the DS so that might be coloring my remembrance of the impact somewhat.

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

Creatives everywhere constantly ruin good scenes by using music. This sequence could have easily been forgettable if they overlaid it with some generic sad theme, but luckily somebody on the design team had a brain. Dang, yes. It's pretty noteworthy that the game actually has a amazing sad theme, b...

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

As far as JRPGs go, I think Phantasy Star beat everyone to the "strong, aspirational female party leader" punch, but unlike Alis Landale who is trying to overthrow the tyrant who had her brother murdered, Alena has an entirely self-started quest, and she takes charge of finding her own adv...

It's the hands that really cement the horror of that character. Those hands have no possible wholesome purpose. I had an art teacher in high school with oddly knobbly fingers, not quite to this extent but enough to make me think of him immediately. The kids used to call him "the man with twent...
