WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS GAME?
>>
>>315622054
Probably a combination of absolutely 0 marketing and most people writing it off due to a) Dragon Quest not being a big name this side of the world (meaning any non-Japan side) and b) being a 無双esque.
>>
Not many people talk about DQ in general here because /v/ is full of casuals.
And this spin-off wasn't great, it was pretty fun though.
>>
I love Dragon Quest, but I don't like Dynasty Warrior button-mashers

>Kept demanding the 3DS turn based DQ games

I still haven't finished it.

Nicely different from all the other musou shovelware, but not different enough to be great.

Visually it's pretty though.
>>
>>315622239
it has a lot of rpg stuff going on in it
>>
>>315622239
this
its like the polar opposite of what dragon quest is

plus theres a chance they're holding the game as ransom for the real main games. i'm not going to buy a spinoff for a chance of getting 7/8/11 localized. plus everyone knows dragon quest heroes 2 is already a thing.
>>
>>315622054
Eh I'd say its truly one of the most mediocre games I have ever played. I platted it and I dont think after the first 10 minutes I truly had "fun". It does alot of new things for a musou which I really appreciate but unfortunately it does none of them well. The best thing about the game was the character models which looked crisp but that is about all I can give the game.
>>
>>315622054
Dragon Quest isn't a big name in the West because the games are horribly outdated and refuse to innovate or compete with much better JRPGs that have more complex gameplay.
>>
There are very few games /v/ actually talks about after release. Some of the games that /v/ still talks about feature waifus, the others are stuff like MGSV. Usually though most discussion gets replaced by the next AAA hype train though.
>>
Because it sold like shit due to being a PS4 only release
>>
Beat it, my first platinum, and waiting til I get my next game.

Not a lot to talk about, short game, Zoma was the only difficult fight and Atlas took me a couple of tries.
>>
BECAUSE ITS BORING SHIT
>>
Because it's fucking boring. I want a mainline DQ, not this shit.

Clearly they knew it was going to be garbage which is why they released it in the west. They'll make their money back by telling weebs "Oh if sales for this are good we will consider porting the others :)"

It's like going to eat something and the only option is a plate of shit. When you say "but I don't want to eat a plate of shit" they say "You can eat it and get food later or you can have nothing"
>>
>>315622539
>platted

You can't be serious. Some of the trophies require an insane amount of time to complete. Why would you play it for that long if you didn't even like it.
>>
>>315623036
>calls DW boring
>but wants to play a Dragon Quest game
>>
>>315623172
Like which ones? Puff-Puff is the only RNG and if you start work on it as soon as possible it's done within a couple of hours. There's a method to farming Mini Medals which also is decent, but slow, money and exp.
>>
>>315622694
>my first platinum

how long did it take? I am on NG++ and it looks like it's a grind.

>>315623382
>There's a method to farming Mini Medals which also is decent, but slow, money and exp.
and that would be? Because there are some equipment that is Medal Shop Only
>>
>>315623732
About 45 hours to platinum, you don't need to do NG+ at all.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib6dEQo6CJo

Do this until you have 99 (check your spoils), repeat if needed.
>>
>>315623823
>you don't need to do NG+ at all.

Each loop of NG+ gives everyone 50 skill points
>>
>>315622054
Because it's basically just a fucking musou game
>>
>>315623895
Yeah, but you don't need those to platinum the game.
>>
>>315623958
but they make the postgame slightly easier.

Also, the what the fuck does Deftness do?
>>
>>315622208
>Not many people talk about DQ in general here because /v/ is full of casuals.
That's pretty funny considering DQ is downright turbocasual.
>>
>>315623036
Classic /v/, poor food analogues
>>
>>315624056
Maybe "normalfags" would've been the better word, I wasn't referring to the difficulty really.
>>
If this game were on wii u or pc you guys would love it
>>
>>315623172
Just to plat it to trade it in. Thats it. Make it a rule to get at least 75% completion of trophies if I buy a game for $60 to say I got my moneys worth. Got 75% in this and saw it wasnt hard to plat at all and just did it. Think the last few hours was listening to MTG coverage while grinding mini medals. No NG+.
>>
>>315622054
because nobody here has a playstation
>>
>>315622305
Musou hasn't been shovelware since DW7.
>>
>>315624174
i dont own a ps4 but played the demo at a con and really enjoyed it
>>
>>315624030
>Deftness
Crits.

Post game as in Zoma, Nok and Atlas? Do-able with a level 99 party the first time around. Especially Terry vs Atlas, you can charge up your next coup de grace with him during each stun from the previous. The enemies that spawn and go right for the root are the only problem I faced.
>>
>>315624335
Terry is the shit. He apparently gets a sword that has a built in debuff.
>>
>>315622171

>WiiU
But we have the superior Hyrule Warriors
>PC
It has all the incarnations of DW8 and SW4, which are also better.
>>
>>315624405
this was not for >>315622171
wrong thread. Sorry.
>>
>>315624478
DW4 and below are pretty bad nowadays.
>>
>>315624403
Yup. His method for charging tension is so easy too.

1. R1+Circle
2. R1+Square
3. Triangle spam while in mid-air
4. Repeat from step 2 until step 1 wears off or is dispelled
>>
>>315624591
Doesn't mean that they were shovelware.

>>315624515

Just stop this shitposting already.

PC only has SW-2, which is essentially a smaller Xtreme Legends. Not only that, SW4 is pretty crappy.
>>
>>315622054
Shitty japanese character desing. Literally noone in this pic looks threatening or cool
>>
>>315622054
No marketing
PS4 only
DQH2 was out by the time DQH1 was released in the west

Anything I missed?

Yeah, double-checking your facts.

DQH2 isn't out yet.

>PS4 only
And? Several games are doing this.

>No marketing
It had some exposure at different cons and shit, including booths you could play it at.

Is Yangus in this game?

Releasing on the PS4 only isn't a good thing, considering DQ needs to be less niche in the west if we ever hope to get any of the other games. It could have at least got a digital only PS3 release.
>>
Because it's like a month old.
>>
>>315625382
Yes, as is Psaro. Yangus is pretty bad ass too. Definite fixed party member.
>>
>>315622054
People want a real DQ no a fucking musou

C'MON MANG
>>
>>315625385
Doric is based as fuck. He deserves to be in a main series game.
>>
>>315625462
PS4 is selling like hotcakes in the west though. It's just another strat to get even more people interested in buying PS4 especially considering what all SE is brining out on it.
>>
>>315625462
xbone fags are just going to buy cawuhdewty and halo every one knows that

any one who wanted more diversity in their options picked the ps4 if you want a console
>>
>>315625921
I don't know many people who are actively buying a PS4 to play Dragon Quest though. Especially considering there's no guarantee that SE will bring over XI to the west.

>>315625939
Sadly, games like CoD and such are what are selling on the PS4 as well.

Just saying it wouldn't have hurt them to release it on PS3 as well, at least not as digital only.
>>
>>315626137
>I don't know many people who are actively buying a PS4 to play Dragon Quest though.
Pretty irrelevant considering PS3, prior to this, has not had a single DQ game on it.

As far as anecdotal goes only one of my friends who like JRPGs has completed a single DQ game (VIII) and he also bought Heroes. Rest of them can't get into it.
>>
>>315622290
Fucking THIS.

We want Dragon Quest not Dynasty Quest. Hell I don't even know if I want whatever DQXI is shaping up to be for the PS4.

Fuck you, I'd play the shit out of Dynasty Quest.
But Dallas Quest would be better.
>>
>>315626651
>Hell I don't even know if I want whatever DQXI is shaping up to be for the PS4.
Why?

Japanese already went nuclear about DQIX being ARPG so it's going to be same old shit even if it features DQXlike movement.

>We want Dragon Quest not Dynasty Quest.
Who is this fictional "we"?
>>
>>315626892
If you are OK with Dragon Quest turning into another annual rehashed DW ripoff, then please, fucking kill yourself.
>>
>>315625665
Dropping the bodyguards was some extreme bullshit, yes.
>>
>>315626892
I just wanted DQ10 as a single player game that wasn't MMO-ishly retarded with grinding.
Why the fuck was that so hard for Horii to realize?
Doesn't help that we have fucking not!Corvus doing a poor cosplay of Governor Horsefucker as the MC either.
>>
>>315625604
West doesn't really care about DQ, anon. And it's just a spin-off so lower retention is expected. It's not like Hyrule Warriors.
>>
Best character?
>>
>>315627054
It's a fucking spin-off you dumbass.

Just like Monsters, Monsters Joker, Builders, Swords, Slime and many others are. I'm surprised you're not saying that it's going to become a fucking MineCraft clone because of Builders.

>>315627132
Are you talking about X or XI here?
>>
With no guarantee on western dq games, why would i shell out money for a ps4 for 2 other games and square rpgs that aren't coming out for a year still just to buy a dq spinoff

>>
>>315622054
I would have bought it, if it was a DQ RPG or DQM game. (Or even a Rocket Slime game)

But I just don't want to have another Musou game I probably won't play much. Hyrule Warriors is enough for me.

Maybe when it's dirt cheap I'll scoop it up like I did with Type 0 HD (It's going for around £9.50 now), but it's not the sort of game one rushes out to buy.
>>
Because it fucking sucks.
>>
>>315622054
Their biggest mistake is releasing it on the PS4 where it's all dudebros.

Nobody plays japanese games on playstation consoles. Shoulda released the game on the 3DS or Wii U where all the hardcore gamers are.
