On nerding out... @ 03:13 pm

Toys R Us has Dragon Quest IX on sale for $35, and they give you a $15 gift card. I couldn't pass up a deal like that, so last night I packed two kids into a warm car and drove into Clackamas to hit up Toys R Us. The baby was especially grumpy, for no discernible reason, but we emerged victorious. Gabe got some congratulatory Legos, and I got Dragon Quest IX.

I played Dragon Quest VIII on the PS2 and loved it! The half an hour or so I played of the new one, make it look very similar to the PS2 game. I'm stoked to play another Dragon Quest game. It's a game I can play with Gabe, as the cartoony graphics should keep him interested.

It's good. I'm 13 hours in (although I like to take my time and grind before bosses and collect alchemy items, so I'm not all that far into the story), and I'm loving it. It feels like old Dragon Quest, but with a bunch of new stuff to keep it fresh. Now we have to hang out sometime so we can trade treasure maps. :-p

Did you play DQ8? That rates in my top 3 RPGs of all time.

No, I'm a bit behind... but between your recommendation and the awesomeness of IX, I may have to go back and fill in the gaps.

DQ VIII is fantastic. Any RPG fan owes it to himself to play it.

Also Dragon Quest VII is really good too. In a PS1 sort of way. It's very Chrono Trigger like.

You, Sir, are not in any way qualified to make that comparison.
