    aren't demos made to test rigs if they can run a software or not ? why would anyone make a demo of an exclusive, just watch the gameplay if u wanna see how it is.

    Um what? Demos are to try out the game.

    That is an extremely narrow sense of the word demo you are using - and totally not idiomatic.

    almost 90% of refunds are of games dropping frames, crashing, and working slow, i have never ever in my entire life seen someone refund a game because he didn't like the gameplay.

    Ever heard of no man's sky?

    And the demo is intended to entice players - it's for marketing purposes - players also get a better idea of the game from playing it than from videos

    Too bad the game is pretty boring.

    The re-allocate skillpoints makes replaying value zero, the game piss easy, and to top it off, the game drags along so so much (after collecting the 7 dragonballs i thought i was done, but nope! - i felt burned out at that point and they just slapped on filler to extend the game, which it really did not need)

    Glad switch owners can relive it on ultra low settings 540P sub 25 fps, but hey, gotta play something on a dead system right?


    start with VIII, XI is terrible.

    "dead system right?"

    I understand not liking the switch, but to call it dead is some form of cognitive dissonance

    Hate to say it, but you're wrong. It's in HD, what the hell have you been smoking? But yeah, keep thinking with your "it's dead because I hate it" bullshit mentality.

    Maybe you should sell your Switch to someone who's more open minded and less prone to hate something because it's not powerful.
    It's time you build a gaming PC or getting a PS4 pro instead.

    Didn't know 37 million sales was dead. Huh.

    Sure looks like a failure to me

    I am 100% certain DQ (the franchise) won't get me to dust off and use my DS in 2019

    DQ IX's servers also dead so you won't be getting to do much any way other than the single-player component which is still really good.

    You can save edit the quests in since this is the ds era and note 3ds or after
    If not that run it in an emulator and upscale it and add effects play with a friend
    (really easy)

    hopefully, the demo will be out in a week or two. temp is pretty good when it comes to posting news like this, then it being confirmed (possibly through release here). :) I plan to prepurchaSe the game the moment I can. the spyro trilogy is available for prepurchase already, and I think that comes out a couple weeks before dragon quest xi does.

    That was interesting, they love the portable consoles there.

    yeah sure. if I were you, I'd try Dragon Quest IV to VI on DS. Or, you could play any of the series' games on Android or iOS

    dragon quest goes in trilogies (i.e. 1-3 with Erdrick etc.), so you do come across some of the same locales. however, each game is standalone. you don't have to have played the other games in any of the trilogies to understand what's going on. with that being said, 10, 11, and the eventual 12 should all relate to one another.

    Hmmm, im thinking about all that magazines that came out in the 90s/early 2000s and they mostly had demos with a caryover option.

    They did this save transfer from demo to full game in octopath traveler. The scene also manages to play past the demo after a couple of tinkering using layeredfs. Hope the same thing happened
