I can't seem to stop playing it. All my family is busy with the new smackdown and Need For Speed, but Dragon Quest VIII is the one that has me hooked. It's kind of a mediocre story, but it's the closest thing I've seen to a classic RPG in a long time.Guyver2K5 said:had anyone played it yet?
thats wat i was gonna postThe Captain said:DQ8 is lots of fun. I think it's the closest thing we will ever see to a 3d version of Chrono Trigger.
Yea, I have really been looking foward to playing DW8 for some time. (Yea, I know, but it will always be "Warrior" to me. Thats one change I think could have been left alone.) The battle system and graphics both look really nice.Exodus said:it'll probably take me a while to attempt playing this one. i'm still feeling the effects of DW7 from a couple years back, and quite frankly, i don't think i can handle a light-hearted rpg like DQ8. maybe later... when i've run out of rpgs to play.
Same here, that damn Tortured Soul gave me a tough time. I died 3 times before deciding to do some lvl training. I got through that fast since I was able to kill some metal slime in the area though it took a little while. Anyway I leveled up 3 times, killed that pesky soul, and I'm off to continue my journey.hushypushy said:god, i suck at this game, ive died and re-entered that stupid gave like 4 times already, i keep getting stronger but not enough to pass them... :|
yep, thats what ive been doing. i level up and finally i get killed, return to the cave, level up, get killed. i figure i do this cycle 4 more times or so and i can finally get through this damn cave. i quit playing for a while just because of that. it's just sitting on my PS2 while i play Ocarina of TimeShadowDancer said:I can't stand in this game how the random battle monsters are so freaking tough. I shouldn't be leveling up my characters to fight the random battle monsters, I should be leveling up to fight the bosses!
