Dragon Warrior is one of my favorite series of all time. But one thing that gets to me is how alot of the characters since DQ8 look like Dragon Ball Z characters. I know Hiro san is the same art director for both Dragon Warrior and Dragon Ball Z, but it really didn't change for the better. If anything they were on the right track before they went on and defiled everything that was good in the series. Among the things defiled are the Edrick and Zenithian sagas. They were really on to something special with both story bases, but then the next thing you know, Dragon Warrior 7 came out, and added absolutely nothing to the spirit of the series. Then came the artwork of 8, and thus the Draconian saga was made, and had yet to live up to the previous tales and lore. Dragon Warrior 1-4 were the ultimate. I played 6 and wasn't that impressed, though at least was better than anything that came out on console since.

However, I never tried the DS games, but I highly doubt they live up to the standards of the previous games, I can just tell by looking at the vids online, the soul of Dragon Warrior was sucked out by corporate greed, and now the series is only a shadow of its former self.

BTW, I heard that this game is gonna have online. What is the point of having anything online if you can't talk to each other?? It still hasn't made sense to me after all these years and legions of games that come out with online but offer nothing short of incompetence when it comes to communication online. I just seen a Mario Kart 7 interview, and they are adding online, still using some type of 13 digit code. And it's so hilarious, every 3DS has a mic and camera. When I bought it I was automatically assuming the 3DS was gonna have online voice chat, oh boy was I wrong. Thats why I wonder if the WiiU is gonna be another technological failure? Don't get wrong, I love Nintendo, but they are dupes when it comes to community features. Man I wish someone with some sense had some authority to fix this whole mess.

Edit, yes this was a copy and re-paste. But the words I speak are truly how I feel.

you can talk to each other. The game's gonna support USB keyboards.

kingdavid2221d ago

That doesnt sound very practical though.

In all, wouldve just prefered an offline experience. Dont know why square is so obsessed with online..

Abriael2221d ago

it's both offline and online :D you can chose.

kingdavid2221d ago

Yeah but I played DQ 9 which had a heavy online component and it takes away from the single player.

I just have a generic party who dont speak or offer anything story-wise. I definitely missed that.

Akira Toriyama has been does the character design for the DQ games.

"However, I never tried the DS games, but I highly doubt they live up to the standards of the previous games, I can just tell by looking at the vids online, the soul of Dragon Warrior was sucked out by corporate greed"
Wait what ?judging a game as deep in his mecanics as dragon quest by vids online ? Really ?
there was changes yes but draque stayed true to his main characters every game so far .

You should try the DS games , really as draque 9 while different is a true dragon quest game.the former self you speak of is probably nostalgia...

"What is the point of having anything online if you can't talk to each other?? "
It worked better than expected in draque 9 .. and it will work better this time thank to wii speak and an improved menu .it's not like games like demou souls proved that you don't need voice to have a great online, right ?
