Think my biggest complaint with DQ11 so far, is that there's no Japanese audio option. As far as I know, there's already English text for all of the audio already, so there's no reason for it to not be in the game. I also read there's no ng+, which sucks, but I heard the post game is supposed to be pretty extensive. I do like the game though.


No Japanese audio was originally recorded for the game, believe it or not. The Japanese release was text-only, and the English voices were added for the U.S. release. There will be another Japanese release, entitled Dragon Quest XI S, that will have both English and Japanese voices for those who want them. (IIRC, that one will also be released for Switch.)

As for the postgame, to give you a good idea of how big it actually is: The wife and I beat the main game at around 75-80 hours, give or take, and the postgame carried us up to almost 150 hours. There is a ton of stuff to do.

I discovered that the Kindle Fire now has a Hidive app, so that is a big win. Means I am not limited to my (... cheap) Android tablet for watching that any more.

you know you can just sideload any android app to a Kindle fire right?

like you can throw the normal Google play store on there if you want, you don't just have to stick to the Amazon store

because a Kindle fire is literally just an android tablet.

Sounds good. Wonder if they'd release the Japanese audio as a patch for the current version. Probably not, but can always hope.

Do you know if having two pairs of robber gloves on Erik boosts his chance to steal or not? I crafted two +3 pairs for him and have them both equipped, but he still fails to steal a lot. I also have the thief set on him right now. I'm sure I can get better steal gear later on, but just curious.

I think you only get the benefit from one pair, but I could be wrong. Never tried it. I'd check to see if it ups his Deftness (i.e. your stealing stat).

according to the people on the dq11 board they do actually stack, so I guess I'll just keep them both equipped. Also learned that 20 deftness = 1% steal chance, so that's good to know.

Kaguya-sama has improved over episodes 2 and 3. They still don't come across as geniuses but it's funny as hell so I don't really care. Also the narration has been cut way down which is good. My only slight downside I've noticed is that it's entirely mini episodic so theres not that much drive to start a new episode once I finish one. In a lot of ways it's similar to saiki and I could see myself randomly just not continuing with it at some point like I did with that show.

@agesboy

You liking the current event? Proud difficulty can kiss my ass, but other than that, I've enjoyed it. I can otk extreme+ just fine so farming the event hasn't been a chore. I like that it forces you to use other characters as well. I got 6 copies of the sword just doing the points/badges, so I ended up with 10 copies total, but I might do some more, since I need typhon fragments to uncap both swords. Should be a decent upgrade for my wind team, since I'll be replacing a sl6 tia gun and a sl10 ex axe, with what should be two sl15 ex swords.

Yeah, the early parts of the manga were like that too.

Where the series truly shines is in how it builds the characters and showcases their growth over time, and how the mangaka puts in little bits of foreshadowing sprinkled throughout as the series goes.

The manga truly hits it's stride at around chapter 45, which should be right around where season 1 of the anime ends.

I've watched all 5 episodes that are out and each one has been better than the last. Definitely looking forward to more.

Also watched the newest manaria friends. Wasn't even any real yuribait this time. Just atmospheric music and animation that puts violet evergarden to shame. Seriously, a very short shot of some water dripping onto a leaf almost took my breath away. Show is downright beautiful.

EDIT: it really bothered me in kaguya-sama in the part where it's raining and they both pretend to forget their umbrellas that dumbass main guy can't think of "my bike also had flat or was in some way damaged". Supposed to be a damn genius. Took me 0.1 seconds to come up with that.

So in DQ11 the big bad Mordegon has jacked my powers and now I'm a fish. I find this super amusing and it also addresses on of my disappointments in the game. I felt like the mermaid kingdom was so lackluster when I went there to get the orb. However, it's a lot nicer when you can swim around in it. I did have a feeling that everything was going way too smoothly and just waltzing up the rainbow road all leisurely like was a dumb move lol.

This week's shield hero is out and the show is still nice. This episode was really pleasant. They have so far done a very good job of instilling a sense of steady progression in the series. Scratches that rpg itch a bit.

Just saw the new Nintendo Direct...

Holy Shit I need a Switch like yesterday.

I mean... RUNE FACTORY 5!!!

The series is not dead! Hallelujah!

Also, I have been debating between getting a Switch or PS4, purely because of Dragon Quest and Persona (And Spider-Man)

But now that DQ is coming to Switch, I'm holding out hope that Persona 5 will also do the same. (Hopefully they'll do a P5 port announcement alongside when Joker gets released for Smash)

My chair broke and now I have to use a worse one and I'm sad about it. I used the armrest as a mousepad and the chair I'm using now has a much smaller armrest. Not anime related but I needed to complain.

I've had a lot of cats in my life. I feel your pain. One of em kept sneaking into my room to pee on my bed like every day for a month back in middle school. It knew how to open the door. Now that I don't have any I kinda miss em but then I just remember all the times they pissed me off and destroyed my stuff.

I like cats, but they can be horrible creatures sometimes. If they'd peed on my couch differently, it wouldn't be so bad, but they managed to pee on the couch back and both cushions. Had they just peed in the middle of one cushion it'd be a whole lot easier to clean, but no, they had to pee on all of the cloth parts simultaneously and the the two back parts of course can't be removed. I sprayed some stuff on it and used paper towels to hopefully get at least a good portion of it out of the back. The seat cushion covers are getting washed and there was a cloth over the couch, so that at least got some of it too. Stain remover on the cushions themselves too and airing them out. Why couldn't they have pissed on the rug that's getting replaced instead. T_T

I still haven't watched Domestic na Kanojo anime but looking at impressions exactly what I feared would happen happened. The series is fleshed out by a wide cast of characters who all get a good amount of development/growth and interact well with each other, and trying to cram all of that into one season causes the end result to suffer. A lot of people aren't crazy about it.

I also started reading Tatoe Todokanu Ito da Toshitemo. It's a bittersweet yuri; main character Uta has realized she's in love with her older osananajimi Kaoru.. problem is, she comes to this realization just as Kaoru is marrying Uta's brother. A beyond hopeless love made even worse by the fact that Uta is currently living with the couple.

Yeah it was more like as soon as I was out of the game I realized I wasn't enjoying the gameplay and the game doesn't offer an enjoyable context for it's still porn images so I could just search up naked anime girls or something to get the same reward with a lot less effort.

Specifically with the gameplay, enemy bullets very easily get lost in your own bullet stream and your hitbox is unclear and likely too large for a bullet hell. To be fair, I also just don't really like bullet hell games even though I've forced myself through a few of the easier touhou games.

Parts of em move a bit but its not like watching a video, which in retrospect is also easily accessible outside the game. I need context in my hentai games, thats the only thing they offer over just going to pornhub.
