Don't give me that look








Dokapon Kingdom is a JRPG!

In Dokapon Kingdom, you fight monsters, level up your skills, and buy new equipment to take on boss enemies and liberate towns! You can switch between various classes such as Warrior, Mage, and Thief who all have their own special abilities in both combat and on the field.

Dokapon Kingdom is a party game!

Each turn starts by you spinning the spinner and moving the amount of tiles you get. Specific tiles can give you items or magic, while most empty tiles will result in a battle or a special event. Your goal is to have the most money and towns to win!

Dokapon Kingdom is loving bullshit.

Dokapon Kingdom doesn't even pretend it's not cheating all the time. If I had the manual I'd be able to tell if it outright said it. The spinner is loaded, high level enemies can read your command inputs, Mid level AI players can rig the drat RNG in their favour, sometimes the game just hurls itself into chaos just to spite everyone. Sometimes the rich get richer, sometimes the rich get eaten, sometimes everything equalizes violently and every once in a while someone turns into a demon. It's completely impossible to predict.





In what ended up being a somewhat poor decision, Grace and I decided to go in mostly blind. The two of us played a practice round of the first chapter, but beyond that it's all new to us. We get to discover all of the game's rudeness in real time, including the ever increasing suspicions of AI player cheating. We're also playing this in person for that extra layer of "WHY WOULD YOU ATTACK ME I DON'T EVEN HAVE MONEY"

As is normal for Dan and Grace, alcohol and poor decisions will be a staple of this LP. We're playing on a PS2 which means the graphics are not going to look as good as you remember from the more popular Wii version.

EDIT FROM THE FUTURE: We ended up getting kinda sick during the back half of the LP. We both tried very hard not to cough much but also we were both sick.

We currently have 35 episodes recorded, we're uh... in the last quarter at least I'm pretty sure. We should have enough episodes to keep posting videos until next time we get to see each other again and we can finish it

I won't spoil anything because frankly you might not believe some of that poo poo unless you see it.

The way this is going I actually expected Estele to somehow breeze trough the whole game in 5 videos.

Here's what I think happened. The AI difficulty is stored as an integer. Something like 5 is easy 50 is medium and 100 is hard. But the game adds or subtracts up to 6 points. By an underflow error her difficulty is now 255. Or it's a long int and her difficulty is around 4 Billion.
Or it's stupid random chance combined with a cursed game.

Wow, you're off to quite a start. Or at least Estelle is.

What's Estelle's income situation? Am I to understand that she gets 10,000 gold periodically forever because she conquered that town? She can buy whatever she wants now?

Is the rest of this lp going to be an endless, hopeless struggle to catch up to this particular Weak AI? Because that would be awesome.

Nah, she doesn't get a 10,000 income, the town has a networth of 10,000.

This game is amazing and also potentially friendship destroying so good luck.

Edit: Like I know this is the popular thing to say about the game but it's also something I experienced firsthand, although it never really escalated beyond being extremely annoyed at being cockblocked from the things I needed to class change to something cool and useful for no good reason.

I sometimes feel like 100% Orange Juice has a malevolent AI who feeds on human suffering and will screw with your dice rolls for maximum salt amongst players.

This game is like that, but with way more methods with which to screw you over.
