This week, we’re talking about the Dragon Quest spin-off game Rocket Slime! This a special episode, because the topic was chosen by one of our Patreon Patrons, DJPimpDaddy!
As part of our Metal Slime tier, you can choose a topic for us to discuss, and this was his. So thanks for your support, and thanks for encouraging us to play Rocket Slime because it’s delightful!
Before we get into that, we just want to remind everyone that the demo for Dragon Quest XI S is now available to download on Switch, so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already.
We begin our discussion of Rocket Slime by talking about the story, the quirky characters, and the different gameplay mechanics. We also bring up the other games in the Slime spin-off series, including Rocket Slime 3, which recently got a fan translation into English.
Then, we talk about all the ways Rocket Slime relates to other games in the mainline series (especially Dragon Quest VIII).
We spend a few minutes talking about the graphics and how they remind us of classic SNES games like Yoshi’s Island, and then we debate the various tank battle strategies you can use.
After that, we discuss the mini-games and extras that Rocket Slime has to offer!
