Why We Need Dragon Quest Heroes III

Why We Need Dragon Quest Heroes III

Okay, okay, okay. Maybe you're skeptical or think I'm biased. (And, yes, I am biased.) But we really need a third entry in the Dragon Quest Heroes series. I love the Heroes spin-off series of games. I've said it repeatedly on here and on the podcast, and it's true....

Dwellin’ on the Past: Fun Times with the Altar of Ages!

Dragon Quest XI S is filled to the brim with content. In previous posts, I've talked about the mini-games and (some) of the Tickington content like Tockles and pastwords. And like I said last week, this time around I want to focus on a special part of the Tickington...

Tockles, Tickington, and Pastwords

Tockles, Tickington, and Pastwords

This week, I want to talk about one of my favorite new additions to Dragon Quest XI S! For a year, I was hoping we'd get the Yocchi Village content from the Japanese 3DS of XI here in the States. On the blog and on the podcast, I talked about it A TON! So I was super...

How I Beat the Superboss at the End of Dragon Quest XI S!

How I Beat the Superboss at the End of Dragon Quest XI S!

Two disclaimers really quick: First, there are going to be a ton of spoilers ahead, so consider yourself warned. Second, I'm in no way an expert. And I'm not saying this is the best way to do it. This is just how I (as in, me, personally) defeated the new superboss at...

The End of the Quest?

The End of the Quest?

Once upon a time*, I proclaimed I was going to beat all the mainline games in the Dragon Quest series within a single year. It ended up only taking me nine and a half months. I've enjoyed (almost**) every moment of it. I think I flew through the games simply because...

DQFM – 18 – Final Fantasy vs Dragon Quest

This week, we’ve got a special episode for our Patreon patron, Ty. We have a thoughtful and friendly discussion about Final Fantasy versus Dragon Quest. We thought it’d be cool to compare numbered Final Fantasy games to its DQ counterparts. We’re both Final Fantasy...

Dragon Quest IX: The Gortress, the Gittish Empire, and Beyond

This is the final week for me to talk about Dragon Quest IX, which is a game I've thoroughly enjoyed. You can check out my first post on the game here, and my second post here. This week, I wanted to discuss a lot of the endgame story, areas, and characters. For me,...

Dragon Quest IX: Angels, Alltrades, and the Almighty

Dragon Quest IX: Angels, Alltrades, and the Almighty

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies is the final game I have to play in my year-long Dragon Quest Quest. I started this game back in July, and I've been having a good time with it so far. I actually beat the main story this past week and am playing through...
