    What the fuck is Erik's accent?

    It’s British when you first encounter him, and his VA is British... I shall have to listen more tonight!

    Still British!

    I’m pretty sure most of them do this though I’m not 100% certain on the XP front.

    I would be very surprised if the VA's were anything but British considering that is the very first thing I remarked on in DQ Heroes was "Why is it EVERYONE in this game has such a bad British accent? ...Are they bad British accents? Maybe they're normal British accents?"

    Is it just me or are the colours really over saturated in this game?

    Especially greens. Grass can look downright neon in the sunlight.

    I made it through the mountain climb at the beginning.

    They do start you off with a magic spell.

    Cannot wait to dive in again tonight. I only got to the first big city the other night after about 3 hours of play. Game just has such a great sense of adventure and I just want to explore every nook and cranny.

    I've played DQ7 on the Playstation many years ago and ended up putting it down because I got stuck on a robot island and everything could ultramurder me so I couldn't go back or forward.

    I also played DQ8 on the 3DS about a year ago and got through the first dungeon but eventually drifted away from it because of combat? I don't really remember, the game didn't make much of an impact on me with the story at that point.

    Seeing DQ11 hyped so much has me interested, but also wary. I'd want to know more about if the story is decent and also how characterization is for party members.

    I don't know what changes they made to the 3DS version but this feels very much just like a more modern and QOL updated version of VIII. So if you weren't a fan of that this one may not be your thing either.

    Skill seeds needed to max out every character at 99, in case anyone is compelled to grind that hard (party member spoilers):

    Hero: 14 seeds
    Erik: 3 seeds
    Veronica: 12 seeds
    Serena: 12 seeds
    Sylvando: 12 seeds
    Rab: 5 seeds
    Jade: 3 seeds

    Respeccing is available from Hotto, 6 or so hours in. Encountered my first metal slimes at around the 10 hour mark if you're not sure if it's worth picking that skill up in Swords. Really enjoying this so far.

    I kind of want to try this since Ni No Kuni 2's story was so disappointing even though I loved the gameplay.

    I'm worried that this will be the opposite though, that Dragon Quest's gameplay is too old school for me. Worried about having to grind to overcome difficulty and stuff. I like being overleveled via doing sidequests and thus demolishing the main quest.

    So the original original Rocket Slime was a GBA game

    the one we got in the US was the sequel, for the DS obviously.

    And then with the 3DS they had one that took place at the sea and there were sea battles and we never got it and I'm so angry.

    I have only reached the part where the hero is about to leave his home village.
    The village is going to be razed to the ground, right? That’s how the cliche goes.

    6 hours in and I just got 1 extra member and access to the skill panel.

    This is gonna be a big adventure and I love it.

    Oh also pro-tip: the order of your characters matters. Furthest left will be targeted most, furthest right the least.

    Important question: in the new game can you change the look of your characters in any way? Like in dragon quest 8 the weapons would obviously change when you equipped a different one, but costumes only changed if you put on certain pieces of specific outfits (like the bunny costume)

    Cause by far the biggest disappointment going from DQ7 to DQ8 was that there was no more dress up

    A bit. There are certain pieces of armor that change the look of your characters. They are marked with a little pink star thingy. There are a handful of outfits for each character but all the armor does not change their appearance.

    I've never touched a DQ game before but for some reason really want to play this.

    But also I have 0 time for new games right now and if I can wait till New Years or whenever it'll probably be on sale anyways.

    But also it's so shiny and I hate waiting ugh...
