I hope DQVIII sells well here, the game deserve it.
It deserves it.

But sadly it's kind of hard for the typical RPG fans taste.

No thanks to Final Fantasy crap for that.

A few people I know have played it and most of them can't pass the first boss, gave up and went back to their "Let's Play Dress Up" X-2.

Yeah, it's definitely one of the easiest DQs. I did die on that first boss though, but that was because I made a beeline straight for him when I first started the game without any kind of preperation.

The dude was saying that DQ8 despite being the most accessible DQ game for westerners, still is not appealing to casual gamers (not RPG fans). You know, its mostly casual gamers who bought FF7 and FFX-2 to begin with (gamers who see the final fantasy games as "anime games").

game is hard at the beginning where the game forces the player to level up quite a bit after that game is very easy I dunno what you are talking about.

They should rename the series Dragon Ball.

For anyone curious about the Advent Children quote (I was) ...

A. Six-month period (April 1, 2005 – September 30, 2005)
(a) While the Games (Offline) segment has been facing a difficult market condition, the
Company achieved favorable results from all other segments including Games (Online),
Mobile Phone Content, Publication, and Others. This, in turn, resulted in an increase in
recurring profit from the previous forecast. In particular, the CG film, “FINAL
FANTASY VII ADVENT CHILDREN,” (available on DVD and UMD) which was invited
to the screening at the Venice International Film Festival for two years in a row earning
great reception, has been recording strong sales since its release in September 2005 in
Japan.
