    I was JUST thinking that I'd like to hear Lusi back on the cast and TA-DA he's back! Awesome. Should be a good one.

    EDIT: whoops, listening to last week's while looking at this week's. Still: it was fun. Bring him back more.

    Square Enix tries its best to make Dragon Quest irrelevant in the west.
    Well, that's always been the case. They're more trying to make it a Monster Hunter competitor than anything else, and as I asked in the chat, I can't help but wonder how well this will work in a home context. From what I understand, MH and DQ9 largely worked in Japan because of the country's packed commuter culture. How did Monster Hunter Tri on Wii do in Japan compared to the PSP games? That's probably a better barometer for the potential success than how DQ9 did, because DQ9 was a handheld title tailored very specifically for Japan's commuters.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did only sell the Wii version of DQX in Japan, and we will get just the Wii U release over here.
    (Assuming it doesn't take ages for the Wii U itself.)

    I also wouldn't had said DQIX was the worst in the series. Although I guess some people might say the story(/main quest) is a big step down for the series.
    Do lots of people play Dragon Quest games just for their stories? It would explain that reaction.

    I really loved the story in IX! It seems like story has always taken a backseat in the DQ series.. It's sort of a less is more approach and that is something I can get down with.
