I have been a DW/DQ fan since I was 9, starting with the original DW release in America. I'm 39; have been a fan for 30 years. Nothing will ever take away the joy of playing a DW/DQ game for me. DQ over FF any day!
shiki1991 shiki1991 so what, you gonna play fortnite all day and play like a fucking faggot? Screw off cunt. We can play whatever we want. You obviously never had a good childhood and just play all those trash ass Fps shooter games. You just have no taste in good games and just bash them. Your not a true gamer so fuck off. Reply back to me with hate then your a selfless cunt that’s just a pussy. Delete this or reply sorry and I’ll forgive you.
Clicked off the video at 0:22 when he hit that blue enemy and it loaded into a different scene... A damned turn based fight sequence..
The 90s are over, devs. It's time to move on and think of a new way to develop combat mechanics..
Gotta say most haters here have never played the game and are haters of one of the most popular and classical jrpgs ever made. Old school isn't bad you little kids go play cod as if that is even a good franchise. People who do not support nor respect the classics need to get the hell out of here.
After finishing Dragon Quest 8 I have very little interest in this. DQ8 was painfully slow on multiple levels and I didn't feel like the story had any payoff at all.
I grew up playing JRPGs and Dragon Quest was one of my first. Honestly I've just outgrown the JRPG genre. They haven't evolved or matured. With so many great western RPGs now that are being made for adults with adult themes, I can't see myself playing JRPGs again anytime soon (besides Persona, I still love those). Dragon Quest 5 will always be my favorite Dragon Quest.
You say you love the DQ series and 5 yet you dont think they tackle adult themes? Five is my favourite game in the series too and anybody can tell you that it has a lot of adult themes such as the idea of starting a family, your father passing, slavery hell the game is one giant metaphor for death and growing old and not becoming regretful when you become and elder. Just because this game doesnt have an edgey main character with blood and guts everywhere doesnt mean they cant explore dark themes and use strong plot devices such as child slavery.
I always found dragon quest games to be a bit bland. It's like they purposefully make them that way, I'm not sure why people like them so much. They should have invested into another grandia game I would have been more excited.
Biggest problem with the music is that they went with crappy synthesized instruments. The PS2 version of DQ9 had actual orchestral recordings and it was marvelous, while keeping the same feel as the original. This is a step back...
I see all those people are mostly complaining of the soudntrack.
EVen though I'm a huge fan of DQ classics, I kinda udnerstand their dislike.
Nostalgia is good and all but the It would have been good to hear some new tunes.
Those music for me are good... But This series is old as heck It can get some good out of some new tunes !
Honestly this would work out on a portable console like the 3ds and all but...
Aiming for big platform and not trying to show off a new original soundtrack ?
So many talented musician in the industry... It's a waste to not try new things !
Why is the framerate so awful starting at 10 seconds? I've been waiting forever for this game to come out and I cannot wait but I really hope that it's well done. I plan on getting it on PC but we haven't seen any PC footage so far and I'm afraid they're going to do an awful port of it. I mean the game is 16 days away and still no pc footage. Why?
Im a man and im getting all wet for that game. Thats how good it looks. Final Fantasy creators should take a hint from the DQ dev team on how to improve a classic franchise without loosing respect to its root.
Well I dont know. final fantasy is all about pushing the boundary of realistic graphics (or as real as they can get it without looking too weird). I mean almost every game starting from 7 changes their look. so what game are you refering to when it comes to visuals? like kingdom hearts look? Thats more meant to look cartoony b/c well...its disney so they looking too detailed would be like a live action/animated hybrid. so idk.
also dragon quest artwork (at least early games i think) was drawn by the reknown akira toriyama who does dragonball! so of course they cant get rid of that look or else...it wouldnt be like his art.
Oh, my gosh, why is Dragon Quest like Dragon Quest? It needs to be more like something it isn't, with a dash of a lot of other crap that doesn't make sense. Developers listening to toxic, know nothing tards on the internet, is what kills a game's loyal player base. If anyone wants a western RPG, Final Fantasy or Persona experience, go play them instead.
Greggy D I would prefer it didn't evolve, the variety of game types in current years boils down to hack n slash and FPS games. Why do all games need to play the same as each other? They "modernized" final fantasy and while it's a decent game has nowhere near the depth it used to. feels like any other generic open world hack n slash game with a few hundred repetitive fetch quests. I would take a turned based game over most of the boring open world repetitive garbage that seems to have taken over the market. Turn based battles vs wandering around barren landscapes for hours on end until you find something to do that you've already done over and over already.
With Dragon Quest still making big sales in the Japanese market (and the only market that matters to its existence), aside from the stuff that has been added and taken away since the first iteration, there is no reason to reinvent its combat mechanics. In every new installment, there was something new, job systems, monster taming, combined attacks, side quests, etc., with the exception of the core turn-based combat has stayed the same. We don't need what EA/Origin did to Ultima in the late-90's, because pre-96 is somehow "shitty." As I stated, if you have a problem with the turn-based style of gameplay, simply go play something to your taste.
Because things should evolve and adapt to the times.. It's not 1995 anymore, go back and play the old games if that's what you want. New things are supposed to be just that, new.. They shouldn't have to keep the old, shitty elements to remain good..
I’ve played DQ before (4,8,9) and DQ 11 music is bad compared to them. It’s all over the place. The battle theme is WAY to happy and up beat, and the over world this is REALLY annoying, DQ games before had had soft slow relaxing beautiful over world theme
Game looks aight but could have had better combat and a more memorable battle theme. And before you rage at me with "wahhhhh it's like it's always beeeeeen" or "you must not like turned based combat" I just think games like FF10-2, Chrono Trigger, Grandia, Golden Sun had better combat and music. I get keeping with tradition and keeping EVERYTHING the same but just seems like a missed opportunity to update the rest of the game since the visuals sure as he'll got one. I'll get the game because we don't get many games like this but it could've been so much better.
Strangely enough i agree with you. I want the combat to at least look more dynamic like those games you mentioned. i mean at the heart they are still turn based but they feel amazing when you play them. this kinda stuff is what i expect a ps2 game would be like. (though it does look visually better than ps2) it doesnt feel like any better than ps2 aside from dynamic cutscens i guess.
The game is amazing. It is for real fans of the genre. Those complaining about the battle system or whatever should just search for the genre they like.this is not for them. We should not forget that this game has reached its 11th game and was successful because of the fans who supported it. The fans like it this way and their voice should be more important. The non fans complaints should not be addressed at the expense of the fans. We are the real supporters of the game, we are the fans and we want it to retain its battle system. No to ffxv battle system on dragon quest and also ff games should turn back to classic jrpg, stop the action shit.
music is iconic but too outdated. It needs to be revamped but still retain the melodies. I think thats what ppl want. visuals are alright tho. maintains the feel of dragon quest while still feeling modern.
What do you expect they were not around during the jrpg's popular time,shooters is whats hot and has been hot for a minute,does not mean it is bad,it is what it is.Enjoy what you like and stop attacking people for liking fortnite it offers something that this does not and vice versa.
i dont get people complaining about the music and the combat, it's classic old school jrpg, turn based combat is doesnt hav enothing to do with being in 2018 or not. Look at divinity. Even games like pillars of eternity which is more like real time combat, need yourself to pause and think so its almost like turn based system. Its cool. Music is good tho, this is the series typical themes. If you don tlike it,don tplay please.
I think its supposed to be using iconic music-like instruments but people are kinda right that its a bit outdated. I mean final fantasy also uses iconic music (like the main theme) but they have to spice it up with really good orchestral soundtracks to make things modern.
why are the comments for this video so fucking terrible? the music is fine. yes, it sucks its not orchestrated. if you wanted action combat play the other 99% of rpgs that are action now and leave us just this one fucking turned based game please you fuck faces. what does 'this looks like a barbie game' even mean?! really? your complaining about a victory chime after combat thats been the same since 86?
Not really. Ive enjoyed FF and Chrono Trigger and I’m enjoying the persona series as well. It’s not Call of Duty or FPS. Everyone gets to experiment RPGs on their own pace. You need to consider the accessibility for every person and the exposure to the series. This game will be my first DQ and I’m excited because of it.
Dragon Quest 11 is the most story focused game in the series, it is actually decidedly more linear that 8 or any other game in the franchise with the purpose of having a deep and engaging story that continues even after the credits roll.
Why are you saying it's "every piece of gameplay released so far" when, as you acknowledge in the text, it was released in Japan almost a year ago? There's literally thousands of hours of gameplay, including complete walkthroughs, already on YouTube.
Dont diss the combat just because you dont like turn based. This is a turn based series, it is directly targeted at the Japanese market where turn-based games are extremely popular. If for some reason you take issue with this kind of system, its simple; find a different series, dont talk shit.
I hate turn based stuff. But I like Dragon quest as a series and yes I know they have been this way but I'm had to push myself past that so I'm gonna get it even tho I hate turn based and prefer free form ACTION combat
GH0ST250 I didn't say enemy type variety I said what you can do. Action you can run around and use and magic and fight all in a matter OF secs. Like you used the example of ff15 I LOVED THE COMBAT ITS fast paced and awesome. Turn based is you pick wether you want to attack or use a potion or defend them you take 3 turns just to do all 3. That's why it's boring to me. Also I've been gaming since I was little. Born in 97 played old Nintendo 64 and all the ps 1,2,3,4 Xbox 360 only one i played. I have a pc. And played ds
Ser Josh people like strategy thats why they enjoy turned based RPGs over action based ones, hence why the guy you're replying to says action based rpgs are boring. for me it depends on the game. FFXV was action based and it was okay at best, DQXI looks way better imo. Also action based rpgs have the same variety as turned based rpgs when it comes to enemies, what are you talking about? how long have you even been gaming, cause that sounds like some newage shit to be saying.
Ethan Matz you literally make not sense lmao. Seriously tho how is action broing? ???? Turn based is boring. You do your action then you wait until your turn again and repeat.... And you think that's better then being able to control the whole battle from start to finish fighting and moving and blocking and doing all actions one after another. And each combat encounter can be different. But turn based there is no different encounters you do the same shit. Free action combat is the best.
No one considers FF15 the worst in the series other than turn-based elitists. I have played every dragon quest, final fantasy, suikoden, okage etc basically ive played a lot of JRPG's with turn based gameplay and ive damn near 100 percentented them all. I love the DQ series, I love turn based and this game series would not be the same if they took it out. However, action games and other forms of combat besides turn based are not inferior. Without it we wouldnt have a large majority games I and many others, probably including yourself, would consider masterpieces. The fact is combat is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to a DQ game and if thats all anyone can focus on then youre all mindless. Also this game doesnt include random encounters anymore which in itself is blasphamy to me however im not going to denounce every game without random encounters stupid.
Josue Corella you press the same button over and over in action rpgs, yet you want to criticize this game?? lmaoooooo, you're dumbass, don't get mad cause deep down you want to play it, but the battle system turns you off. move along and find some other shit to play lmaoooo
If you're criticizing the game for being turn based, then you never played a fucking dragon quest game before lmao. Also, how can you say that turn based battle systems require ZERO strategy yet button mashing during free combat does? You're a stupid ass nigga.
Mario Franza Some of the inhabitants of this world look like they're from a cartoon aimed at ages 3-5 0:25 which is a fucking waste unless you're the kinda person that enjoys childish games. It's not for me.
Mario Franza Like I said, the graphics look good and I like the environment but the music and things you fight/interact with are just weird as fuck. You really telling me this isn't some weird shit to be fighting in a turn based game?
The dragon quest thing was a one-time thing that Togashi did that people have start to bring up now this game is getting released. However, DQ11 was released over a year ago in Japan and HXH is still on hiatus because Togashi is genuinely crippled from back pain.
