    @riderkicker I cant answer for Nadia but for me I also never name characters after me.

    I usually call them Vorlis or Lusheta depending on gender. And for some reason I tend to call my dq characters max? And I'm not really sure why...

    I couldn't help but notice the bit of doubt you seemed to have about their being space for the things the site does like it's reviews with a different voice.

    It doesn't mean much and I'm sure given all the resources you have on the gamer network you know exactly how the metrics work out for your content...

    But I want to say that I always appreciate the content on this site. And it's voices that are allowed to be distinct and different.

    @jimgamer I wish we could get that. I really recommend you look into how broken the wii u and 3ds are for managing the eshop. You'll quickly see why Nintendo wouldn't support transfers.

    Not even the Wii or DSi was THIS broken.

    The presentation and the snappy dialog stands out a lot in this game, but I never truly got into it. I feel like I fundamentally missed something about the combat...

    I should really dig it out again, I'm sure I have it on PSN...

    I do offer my apologies for you playing on the 3DS though, love that console, but lovely spritework like CT just is sad is with that upscaling.

    Oh Chrono Trigger...

    I remember playing you in about 2001 on a 166mhz PC with frameskip set to 9 just to get it to play at the correct speed... 8 years before it was offically released in Australia. I adored it to bits

    I bought the DS version later on a trip to Japan (which has an english option in it!) and never touched that version...

    This is making me consider picking it up again.Edited 3 days ago by Unknown

    @timkeough Well... taking any review as gospel just seems like a path of pain and suffering...

    I don't have a problem with the DQ heroes 1 2 pack being 32gb and the switch's internal memory being less than that.

    My problem is that with the vita, square proved they were sensible for a moment, and the FFX X2 pack were done as separate downloads in consideration of the vita, and this was common for Vita HD remasters and such as well.

    Obviously, even when broken up, I imagine 1 would be 10gb while the other 22 or something. But still, I feel SE could have made this a little less terrible.

    As for Switch coming out with 32gb, it kind of sucks, but try finding any tablet around that price with more, and if you succeed, it will not be a very powerful tablet... This was a needed cost cutting measure, and by now most people have excess Micro SD cards to get them by on launch period until they need to upgrade the card fully. It's a bit of cost spreading, but its fairly managable.

    And lastly, DQ Heroes is expensive!

    That's about 2000 yen more than breath of the while!

    Well, it's a shame that this score seems to have attracted a... Passionate crowd. But some fun chances to discuss the nature I scores I guess.

    2.5 seems like a fine number for what seems to be in this experience a fairly average open world game outside of some very pretty and interesting visual designs.

    Kind of a shame though, although since I haven't spent years reading Catys work I can't quite work out her preferences yet (and how much they match mine or not)
