Is it still horrifically grindy like its predecessors?

Dragon Quest hasn't been grindy in over 30 years, but in 11 in particular you can easily evade encounters, and the game gives you many tools to make yourself capable of fighting enemies at far below the natural level.

Found the person who hasn't played any DQ11

is all this bowsette poo poo? Why would a female bowser look look like a human chick with horns when bowser himself looks nothing like a human? I can't believe I actually read these past 30 pages to catch up.

Oomph + Power Charge + Knuckle Sandwich carried me through DQ7 and the idea of hardcore punching the final boss in the face is an appealing concept so I hope I can replicate some form of that in 11.

Because it's derived from Peachette.



Better question is why it's Bowsette and not Peachser.

There's an item in the new super mario bros game that turns toadette into peach, and the internet decided if it can turn toadette into peach then it can turn bowser (and all the other mario enemies and characters) into peach too, but with gigantic anime tits because it's the internet

then people drew a lot of porn of it, the end

deviantartists should just stick to taking fivers to draw fursonas IMHO because this thread quickly became a load of hot garbage!

If the powerup changes toadette to normal-looking peach then why would it not turn mario & co. to normal-looking peach too? the pic a fuckin canary posted only shows her with pigtails so I still don't understand where human chick bowser with horns comes into play

edit: no one reply to this I'm clearly just a grumpy old man who isn't hip enough to understand what the hell is going on anymore

The one thing I appreciate about pocket camp is that you can do everything at any time you want. I realize it's what defines AC but persistent clock that locks you out of things at certain hours is consistently the one thing that bums me out.

You donít lose progress for dying. Put your money in the bank, dumb dumb. Also, if you got off your horse and fought, like, the minimal amount, you wouldnít be dying. This game is easy street.

The AC games allow you to adjust the clock from the main screen though, it's really no big deal to change it around.

I know the "intended" way to play the game is by playing a little bit each day but I always liked binge-playing it and going through multiple days in a sitting by adjusting the clock forward as I ran out of stuff to do (and things to buy).

I think NBA 2k18 is the first Switch version. The one that just recently came out is NBA 2k19. I think 2k18 is a great purchase especially for how cheap it is now. Some of the modes are filled with micro transactions. However, those aren't the modes I play. I mainly play exhibition games with friends or the myGM/myLeague modes. Those modes are great for a portable system.

Ahh. Thatís what I meant. Thanks!

As long as the options are there then I'm fine with that. There's no way Nintendo would offer games spanning several systems on their current online model. They'll probably have subscription tiers or just raise the base price.

Yeah it's really good. The fact that each board is a 'mission' that you can actually clear makes it more fun than 'endless' style puzzlers like Tetris I think.

Not played it 2 player yet but I assume it's basically just a race?

EDIT: Looks like if you are doing well by clearing viruses you drop additional pieces onto your opponent. Like Puyo but they aren't 'junk' pieces, just regular ones.

loving hell, just spent ages figuring out why The Switch wouldn't output anything but a black screen to the TV when docked. I spent way to long trying different cables and things. Eventually I came to the conclusion the dock was probably faulty and and would have to be exchanged.
Turns out all I needed to do was reebot the system. I partially blame myself for being an idiot and not trying the most obvious step, but also Nintendo for having a poo poo support site.

How about we just have one kid that's legal to fuck, but if you fuck any other kid you get executed. Responsible pedophiles who can wait for their appointments with the fuckid get to live normal lives, dangerous pedophiles are removed from the population.

My problem with it is that some artists who are doing other characters with the crown seem to be forgetting that it turns them into Princess Peach. It's not just a genderswap item!
