It’s week three of our Deep Dive into Dragon Quest IV!
In this episode, we’re discussing the monsters and villains that we liked, loved, and hated (to fight, at least). You can listen to the episode right here:
In the first part of the show, we discuss Austin’s latest DQ swag, like the Ukulele Tab book and Slime teapot, and then we dive straight into the iconic monsters like the king slime that got their start in DQ IV! From there, we talk about some of our favorite (and not-so-favorite) monsters and bosses in the game!
In the second half of the show, we talk about Chapter Six and story spoilers. We talk about Foo Yung and Chow Mein’s epic “chicken or the egg” debate, Aaman and Endor and other Lord of the Rings references, and the epic showdown with Psaro the Manslayer!
Remember, you can buy Austin’s new book, The Dragon Quest Book: Interviews and Reflections on the Fandom in the West on Amazon. Print and ebook editions are right here.
