Yeah, poor DQM, it's going to sell over a million. Square Enix is going to be weeping all the way to the bank.

Because if someone made the same comment about MGS4, DMC4, or Halo 3 there wouldn't be a similar flood of shocked responses.

DQM is a respected, strong selling series. His comment was ludicrous. Someone laughing at it isn't some "defender." That person has common sense.

Good move by Square-Enix.

How Nintendo is going to actually have enough systems availible ... gawd knows. If they can manage 400,000 for that week it should be OK (though still well short of demand).

Don't worry. By three months after Pokemon hits, the ~6.7 million or so who bought it will be ready for DQM.

metal gear acid, dragon quest monsters, pokemon snap

it's all a waste of time, but ohh, the japanese love it, so i must love it too, else my credibility takes +9 forum damage!

hey i call games wanda the colossus and jet set radio because i garner respect amongst my peers! ooh



if only us gaijins could create art this good, then we'd be revered by people who buy soiled panties through vending machines, slimeachu i choose you, wear this ring of dexterity and cast this charm spell on my character in an attempt to convince me that this is fun!!!

Errr ... I believe Super Mario Kart would be the first full fledged spin-off of the Super Mario series.

Super Mario RPG, Mario Tennis, Mario Golf, Paper Mario, would be others.

He didn't say the spinoffs of Super Mario Bros., he said the spinoff that was Super Mario Bros.

Hey, if we're dragging Gamerankings into this:

Dragon Warrior Monster 2: 82.3%

Huh? What? I was going to reply and defend the game myself, but I was just surprised to see so many people already smack him down. I think you're a *little* bit too sensitive. :P

It actually was a serious question. It received good but not amazing scores (The earlier games) but this game is receiving a massive amount of hype here, and me even asking about the game seems to cause strong emotions. What's special about it?

1. DQVIII has made thousands of new fans of the DQ series.
2. It has great graphics for the system its on.
3. Look at what system it's on.

Check the sales numbers for previous entries, not review scores.

The original game was way better than Red and Blue at the time. I've been waiting for a sequel for half a decade, regardless of what platform it's on.

That said, I don't think you could call the GAF hype for it "massive."

Judging by Mike Works and Bebpo's attitudes towards fans of the game, I'd say no.

As a longtime DWM/DQM fan, I don't feel like being lumped in with Japanophiles, DS fanboys, and sales junkies.

Why do you care though, it's pretty clear who has played a DQM game and who hasn't. :)

Definitely.

I just get sick of all of the "____ defender/crusader" labels that apply to fans of... every damn thing.

Realized I had misread your post, chose not to edit my post out, probably should've added that I made a mistake.
