In this week’s episode of DQFM, we discuss Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2, originally released on the PS4. We discuss the difference in play styles, NPCs, and even towns from the mainline series. (Airship vs Courtyard. We all know which one is cooler, right?)
Which Heroes game is better? Austin has fond memories of the first one and thinks it’s the best. B.J. agrees, but thinks DQH2 still has a lot of good things to offer. We also do a character comparison between the two games, discussing the Heroes brought in from mainline DQ games as well as the original Heroes that are created for the DQH games to give them their own flavor.
We go off on a few random tangents (of course), where we talk about Dragon Quest VIII, and that Seth Green commercial for Dragon Quest IX from, like, ten years ago? Austin remembers it fondly (or at least he remembers it), but B.J. is completely ignorant of it. We’re sure it’s on the internet somewhere.
We briefly discuss Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime, but B.J. starts losing his voice. A lot. And fast. In this episode, you can listen to it all in real time. Hear him go from sounding like a normal (as normal as he gets, anyway) person to sounding like a weird, chain-smoking cartoon character. He sounds like a cartoon character pretty often, but this is a whole new level. You have to listen to see this. You’ll love it.
