@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

Actually switch out Vampire for Dragon and he kind of has it.


I guess that's true. But it looks like before I can do that, I'm going to need a key. And I forget where that town is on the map. So... I'm still hoping to find that little strategy guide when I get home.

Found it. I'm grinding to get the magical armor before going to fight that dragon. Kicked my butt on level 10. I'm 12 now. Get the armor, I should be able to save the princess.

I think the main thing that's going to give me trouble is that with the NES, I was well into the 20 lvl's and you can beat the game rather handily with that. But I don't know if they raised the lvl cap on the iOS or made the Dragon Lord harder. Should be interesting either way.

Nah I had this beat at lv 20 myself here a couple months ago. I had to refresh my memory a few times to remember exactly what I had to do a few times but I got through most of it on my own after 20 years or so. Now DQ 2 I never played through so I'm having a harder time.

My main problem I think is that I kinda know certain things I'm supposed to do, but not the order I'm supposed to do it in. So I get my ass kicked trying to do something out of order.

So I just defeated Dragon Quest 1 on the iPad. *goes back a page to see when he got it*

One week ago today! And...umm...I didn't play it at all throughout the week because I was playing DQ XI at my home instead. So basically, I beat this in 3 days.

These older games just aren't as long as I seem to remember.

I'm interested in this game, since I love Toriyama's art and have always wanted to get into DQ, but I'm going to wait until I can find a used copy on Switch. I can't bring myself to buy a DQ game if the money I spend is going to a complete and utter shitstain like Sugiyama; I feel marginally better buying it used just because none of the money I spend will go to him.

 

Of course, that means if there's DLC, I'm not going to buy the DLC... Shit.

I don't know what the story is behind Sugiyama and why you don't like him. But I'm no stranger to not buying something out of principle.

There isn't really any DLC. There were pre-order bonuses which are kinda nice early game but loses a bit of their usefulness later. So really, you wouldn't be missing much at all by getting it used. I don't know when it's supposed to come out for Switch in the States though. Probably going to be a while.

I don't know what the story is behind Sugiyama and why you don't like him.

He bought a newspaper ad in the Washington post saying that the Nanjing Massacre never happened and Japan has nothing to apologize for from WW2. Also, he has a talk show and laughed about LGBT teens committing suicide.

 

He's a reprehensible excuse for a human being.

Wow! Nothing like finding out you just gave money to a complete and utter scumbag like that! I already have the game, so I'm still playing it. It's still a hell of a fun game. But knowing this now, I may have to reconsider getting any DQ games in the future.

Okay, so I got over my boycott and got Dragon Quest 8. I'm loving the game, even if I still hate Sugiyama's guts.

 

Also, despite Sugiyama's shittiness, XI apparently has an extremely positive portrayal of a flamboyant/effeminate gay guy. Like, Sylvando is camp as hell, but he's never mocked by the characters or writing for it, he's one of the most badass, wise and noble characters, he has characterization and development beyond being campy, and most importantly of all, he's never portrayed as predatory. He feels like Yuji Horii and Akira Toriyama giving the most elaborate and awesome "hug you" to Sugiyama.

 

Persona could learn a lot from him.

Even if you bought it new, none of the money would go to him.  Composers of video games don't get royalties on the games.. only on live concerts or OSTs.  He was paid long before anyone bought the game.

So, I bought Dragon Quest 1, 2 and 3 on the Switch. Yeah, I know I just recently beat DQ 1 on iPad, but I've never played 2 or 3 and I wanted to play them as a trilogy. Plus the Switch has an actual controller.

Never having played 2 or 3, I can't wait until I get to them. Makes me really want to hurry through 1.

Im nearing 90 hours on XI S. On the post game treasure hunt and level grind. So for those that played the PS4 version other than the quests with the four in the mid point has there been any other additions you found. I want to say there was one in the post game at Heliodor Castle after the reveal of the post games big bad but Im not sure if I just never hit it before.

I played it on PS4, but I haven't bought it for Switch. I doubt I will just because, dang I sank a hug ton of time into it on PS4 and just can't bring myself to go through it all again.

Purchasing 1, 2 and 3 was my bid for showing support on the Switch. Would love to eventually get 4, 5 and 6.
