    You commented on how insanely well DQ8 sold in its first week, so I went and crunched some numbers...

    From the Dengeki Top 50 sales list...

    DQ8 sales, for just this week: 603,494
    everything else, same week: 314,241

    So Dragon Quest 8 accounted for almost 66% of ALL RETAIL GAMES IN THE COUNTRY for its opening week.

    --edit: whoops, I fail at math.

    That was a fun episode.

    Lolwhoops, I'm currently doing a replay of dq7, and I'm about 70% done with it. You should be getting to the class system around the part you are describing.(20 hr mark) I personally think some of the scenarios have excellent storylines.

    Do you think any contempary musicians would make interesting composers for a jrpg?

    Question for the next episode, whenever you get around to record it:

    A bit of context first: I was going through my old PS1 games recently, and noticed two RPGs that almost never come up in conversations: Jade Cocoon and Thousand Arms. I remember getting Jade Cocoon used at Gamestop at some point for about $2, and then forgetting I even owned it. I did beat Thousand Arms years ago and enjoying it, but have no idea if it's worth revisiting nowadays (I'm guessing it doesn't hold up).

    So the question is: Are there standalone PS1 RPGs (J or otherwise) that are actually worth playing nowadays? I know some (Shadow Madness) are best forgotten, but there has to be some gems here and there (whether they crossed the Pacific ocean or not).

    Lolwhoops I heard you mention dragon quest fan art, so I did something today. It's the dq7 hero. He ended up looking older, but it is what it is.

    Also: I want to hear Wheels complain about FF Type-0. I played through it first on the PSP (using the unofficial translation) and again on the PS4 and had a great time (though I will acknowledge the game has a lot of flaws).

    Well I am back with some other Monster Hunter question.

    I just did my new set of armor in monster hunter (Auroros) and I got the skill Mind's eye, man I don't think I can live without that ever again!

    So my question is what are your favorite skill that you need to have on your hunter.

    What about the new Monster Hunter X that is coming with the news fighting styles? Can't wait to try the aerial one.


    Always enjoy all the experience in life, you might gain a level or two.

    I have dim memories of playing the beginning of Jade Cocoon. It has a somewhat unusual story premise, and the gameplay is closer to Pokemon than a traditional RPG. I think it's worth trying, provided that you can tolerate PSX 3D graphics.

    I will expand on Bobby Watson's question with: what are some obscure (but not import-only!) GBC, GBA, DS or PSP RPGs that you especially recommend playing? So far I have discovered two enjoyable DS RPGs entirely because of RPGamer: A Witch's Tale and Magical Starsign. I would have bought them brand new when they came out, but I was completely unaware they existed at the time.
