What american games and their respective versions keep the Puff Puff gags?

I recall a puff-puff gag in Dragon Warrior III for the GBC, Dragon Quest VIII for the PS 2, and Dragon Quest IX for the DS(DLC). I recall hearing that they were removed from either Dragon Quest IV or Dragon Quest V(or both) for the DS.

Dragon Quest 1+2 in the US had puff-puff in that one town (Koll? The place with log cabin looking buildings) if I recall correctly. It wasn't really that much of a gag really...to me anyway.

Ah, ok.

Also I'm in Romanly (probably didn't spell that right) in Dragon Quest III right now. The dungeon prior to that was a bitch to navigate through w/o a guide though.

Made another file on my DQ3 cart with a Female Hero with a Lewd/Sexy personality, and a Warrior (F), establishing a Battle Couple.

Not that fun actually. Too much melee. Maybe I'll get a mage instead.

Hey,

If I want to get into this series, what game should I play first?

And what version?

I know there are NES versions, as well as GBC versions, of the first three, and there are also translations for the SNES versions of I+II and III, as well as of V. And then a PS 1 version of VII.

I+II might definitely turn you off (unless you're playing the GBC version). I was able to beat both due to how linear they are, but... yeah...

I'm really liking Dragon Quest III so far. I highly recommend any version of it, though the GBC version is the most well balanced.

Glenn, my favorite has always been 4, with 1 as a close second.
DQ 4 has a DS re-make of the NES original.

Dragon Quest I does have a lot of charm going for it. I like how the remakes have you fighting in different backgrounds, and the music is classic and awesome.

As for the first Dragon Quest, I would suggest either Dragon Quest VIII for the PS 2, or Dragon Quest IV or V DS remakes. Dragon Quest VIII is pretty and rather simple, so it makes a good entry point for more modern gamers. It's a little on the slow side, which can turn off some.

Dragon Quest IV is also very simple but has nice variety and can give you a good idea how the Dragon Quest games typically are like. Dragon Quest V, I think, has the best story of the series but is a little different from the others. I'd say it's a great number 2 for playing.

Dragon Quest IX is also always a choice. It's got many changes from the other ones, but is generally user-friendly and not too difficult.

What name should I give the main character of DQ 1?

Any is fine. I don't know whether or not Erdrick/Loto's descendant has a Canon Name.

Nearly all of the Dragon Quest heroes actually do have a Canon Name. That said, I forgot most of them. (Dragon Quest IV's hero's Canon Name is Solo for the male hero, and Sofia for the female.)

What version are you playing, GMH? You should look up a FAQ. Your stat growth varies on your name.

Oct 9th 2010 at 7:16:30 PM

Okay, what's the main character's canon name?

Because I (personally feel that I) shouldn't be using stat bonuses to determine what name I use.

I also refuse to use that "XNX'VXV" or whatever code as my name just to catch funny things in first-gen Pokémon games.

I found a list:

1. Aleph, 2. Aren (Alen?), 3. Arus/Alis, 4. Solo/Sofia, 5. Abel, 6. Botsu (manga only, didn't have one otherwise), 7. Arus, 8. None, just 'Eight' in the manual.

Well, apparently, for DQ 1, it's Alef, for according to this guy's Wikipedia page on his voice-acting work.

I'll go with that.

So, I just beat DracoLord.

And now I know where Earthbound got both its battle system and its post-final-battle world tour.

In other news, though...does anyone know whether it's possible to die after beating DracoLord?

I don't believe so.
I think all random encounters are turned off after you beat Mr. Scaly-pants.

Oct 15th 2010 at 2:51:02 PM

Well, I knew that already. But I tried taking off my Loto Armor and walking back onto the swamp and drain tiles in scaly-pants's castle and that didn't work.

All the other swamp tiles were changed to flowers, or grass in the case of the ruined town of Domdora.

I actually used up too many keys and couldn't buy any new ones so I can't check two more sources of drain tiles—the ones before the sage in Mercado and the before a soldier in Tantegel Castle.

Except I don't think you can go to that part of Tantegel Castle anyway because there's an NPC blocking your way. (I have no idea why.)

One final possibility is if I hadn't killed the guarding dragon and saved the princess, that it might still be there. I don't need to kill the dragon or rescue the Princess, since all she does is tell the location of the Loto Seal and I can get that without her.

My first Dragon Quest was VIII, or Journey Of The Cursed King if you prefer the alt title. Understandably as it's the first in the series to hit Europe at all.

And I admit the initial spark of interest was cos it's by Square and had art by Akira Toriyama. (Yeah Im kind of a DBZ fan too...)

Anyhow searched online later and it seemed like it would be worth my time. I'm a sucker for a good JRPG.

Game was pretty great. ^.^
