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 to Beat the Superboss at the End of Dragon Quest XI S

How to 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...

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...

Dragon Quest Builders 2: Final Thoughts

Dragon Quest Builders 2: Final Thoughts

A few weeks ago, I posted my early impressions on Dragon Quest Builders 2, which you can find here. I decided to wait about writing up my final thoughts on the game, because there was a lot to consider. So, finally, this week I decided to post all of my last...

Most Memorable Characters in Each Dragon Quest

Most Memorable Characters in Each Dragon Quest

This week, I just wanted to rank some of the most memorable characters in each mainline Dragon Quest game. That doesn't mean they're necessarily my favorite (although a few of them are). These are also my most memorable characters, the ones who stuck out the most for...

Final Thoughts on Dragon Quest VIII

Final Thoughts on Dragon Quest VIII

This is likely going to be my final post on Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King. At the time of this writing, I beat it about two days ago. That means I only have to beat DQ IX in order to beat every mainline Dragon Quest game within a single year. Today, I...

Dragon Quest VIII: Side Quests, Mini-Games, and More!

Dragon Quest VIII: Side Quests, Mini-Games, and More!

Last week, I talked a lot about the characters in Dragon Quest VIII. This week, I want to focus more on the gameplay mechanics that make this entry unique from the others in the series. DQ VIII has a lot to offer in terms of side quests and mini-games. There's the new...

DQFM 11 – Dragon Quest 2 (Listener’s Choice)

This week, we’re talking about Dragon Quest 2! We had a listener poll, and this is the topic you chose. A HUGE thanks to everyone who voted. We’re going to be discussing the game in-depth (plus the game is, like, 30 years old), so there will be some SPOILERS ahead.

Dragon Quest VIII: Heroes and Villains

Dragon Quest VIII: Heroes and Villains

This week, we've finally reached Dragon Quest VIII! It's the next-to-last main entry game I have left to play. I'll admit, I've taken it much slower with this game for a number of reasons. (1) I'm almost to the end of playing all the mainline DQ games this year, and...
