    I never thought I’d praise anything from Kotaku again. Well done for rising above a truly garbage channel.

    Here’s a tip for Dragon Quest XI that Tim Rogers missed. When you leave Vector for the second time, don’t immediately head for the port to take you to Thamasa. Instead, you should make the long trek back to the airship. It’s still being repaired, but you get an amazing scene with Setzer that really adds a lot to his character. It makes a later scene even more poignant than it already is. You don’t get any loot for this, it’s only a story beat you’re missing, but you’re playing this game for the story. Hope this helps.

    I bought it on Steam. took me almost 2 hours (not quite) to figure out the controls. Warning, don’t buy on PC. That’s unacceptable.

    My friend recommended this game to me. So i decided to inform myself about it online.
    I don’t really see the appeal of it. This cutesy, cartoony graphics is ridiculous, like it’s made for toddlers. The game actually looks like a free online game my 4 year old niece plays. I like serious games, grittiness, sex and gore. I am going back to Witcher 3.

    I’m kind of surprised you didn’t put up the critical hit method or the importance of falcon slash for metal slime farming. As I always use thunder thrust or I think it’s hatchet man whenever I fight them as with 3 party members your usually bound to kill one of them.

    The two things I want now from square is to have dq9 redone for PC/switch in the style of dq11. And for dq11 to have character customization show (you equip a certain shield or armor and it changes your character model)

    Tip 11. I’ll probably ignore, when I played through DQ VIII 1.5 years ago I’d play for up to 3-10 hours per day, and when I played Spider-Man I’d play up to 6+ hours per day

    Pretty much I end up playing the game 1.5-2 hours a day due to work and other stuff… but then I get to binge on weekends. I can’t stop ._.

    I cannot stress this enough, and this pisses me off every time I see it – DO NOT USE AUTO BATTLE.

    As a turn based RPG, Dragon Quest (just like Final Fantasy, Octopath Traveler, and practically every other JRPG with a turn based battle system) is SIGNIFICANTLY more fun if you choose what each of your 4 characters will do.

    This only takes 1-2 seconds per character, and will allow you to experiment with that character’s abilities and feel his/her growth over the course of the game, as well as give you a much more strategic and meaningful experience playing the game.

    Only choosing what the protagonist would do is meant for begginers to JRPGs, and seriously undermines the experience of the game. You can’t even choose when or how to use your special abilities (called "pep powers") this way, as some of them are only available to specific characters when specific other characters are pepped, and it is unlikely the AI will choose to use them for you.

    So me and wife was @ our Target store, cuz I needed a new vid=Bruce Willis type, and as she went about on her electric go cart, I decide to venture down the PS4 Aisle, I did know DQ11 was arriving, but I thought it would be later- like ACombat 7 wait! anyway, I says to myself, a heck’ns I can’t just do model airplanes all the time! I did know that it was turn based, and for this old dog, would be perfect- I just don’t have the reflexes for some final bosses in the last release- forget it’s name now! 😀 = old fart memory hassles! 😀 So now, I’m checking reviews etc before I open this package!
    GG & Thank You Kotaku! great vid= I subbed!

    I 51hrs in, I’m level 46ish. I think I have all the story progression needed for the final final boss. But now it seems I’m faced with grinding 30 to 40 levels, and I don’t want to. Leveling with the story was fun, but suddenly I’m stuck. If someone knows, what’s the best way to grind these levels and how long will it take?

    If it’s the metal slimes…

    Why are kotakus author bios & videos full how much their authors definitely definitely love games so very much. Just review the games and maybe give me your credentials in your bio. You promote too much and it’s suspect af.

    Just beat the game if your having a hard time with the final boss use your sword as an item it helped tremendously also if your metal slime hunting use Jade lightning Thrust and Erik critical claim to instantly kill them if u don’t have metal slash

    I’m at level 20 but still haven’t used any skill points. This because I wanna do it in the most optimal way for each character, but still have no idea what to have the characters focus on. Any advice?

    Two questions:

    What stats improves Erik steal skill? I keep stealing nothing most of the time, despite an armor set who improves it a bit
    -we get trodain clothes at the beggining and a Forge recipe have them used for a better version of it. Haven’t seen any other recipe using an item (weapon or clothe) yet, only recipes made completely of craft materials.
    Can i blindly sell my old stuff or is it like dq8 where you should keep it as craft materials

    I like how many people complain about the voice being too low to hear, proving that the culture of Youtube gamers screaming their lungs off has truly destroyed the audio perception of a lot of folks, who unfortunately don’t understand words unless they’re being shouted loud enough to shatter their cochlea.
