Of course americans/english are going to think DQ is boring,it doesn't have flashy FMV's and good looking characters. DQVIII is an Excellent traditional JRPG.

That's an unfair generalisation.

Traditional doesn't always equal great.

That doesn't stand since DQ8 is excellent visually, perfectly capturing Toriyama's style.

It is mine too and that is why I used the example.

I have done my fair share of defending it across various boards so know how ignorant people can be when it comes to taking the time to understand something.

I finished it in like 5 minutes. Im not trying to show off, i know cause i watched the gametrailers review and when they talked about difficulty thats the battle they showed and i was surprised i finished so quickly.
Anyways i remember i basicaly spammed my AoE spells and skills at the beggining of the match and it was basically just the boss left. Some swift interrupt and single enemy nuking (think it was meteor shower at that time) + air combos made the rest.
Well, i dont know yet again. The way i setup my characters was very conservative. I made Dhana the "nuker" with fire and earth magic and + magic acessory, skills and weapon. Alfina was the same but has the healer with water and wind. Yuki and ulf were the physical pain ditchers with + strength acessory and skills. Dunno if at the time i already had those skills that double the number of attacks on them or not but they are killers combined with their special moves that double the combos yet again and in an air combo. Maximum level possible eggs and skill books. Emergency healing taken care of with items.

All this made me remember that there was actually a Boss that was quite the challenge. Hes at the entrance of a flying castle you go to into in the second disc. He was incredibly overpowered and i died quickly the first time i met him. Once i analyzed him i focused the damage on one of the parts. When he lost a part the combat was leveled. I guess thats the case where were supposed to use the summon orbs since i dont think i wouldve made it without it.
Those summon like orbs are something you should always have filled when you go into a boss fight. Theyre really like a cheat, but in extreme cases they give you the chance you needed to win! Dont use Draks orb though. Its crap! Always go for the defensive ones.

Its quite surprising no one mentions the rather easy final boss though . His worse spell could be evaded! lol! lvl 44 is all thats needed to defeat it

I let myself go there...i apologize for the out-of-topic post
I'll probably get back to it sometimes.... The game is loaned out right now...

I backed off since I saw almost noone was interested. I was in a project before and after I put lots of time in the others decided it was "too much work" and killed it off, didn't want to be left in the dry again.

Nah. I thought MGS2 had more problems then a weak story. But I rather not say because it will take this thread further off topic then what it already is.

So anyway, does this mean a propper remake of FF6 for the DS? Or perhaps a Wii version of FF13?
