"Dragon Quest X, an MMO released for the Wii and soon to be launched Wii U, has sold 420,000 copies in its first week of sales. Rather a lot, until you consider that Dragon Quest IX and Dragon Quest VIII sold 2,353,440 and 2,237,000 copies respectively"

Its over, DQ is finished

Mabe that or the fans simply didn't want an MMORPG :O

I never really liked DQ. Akira Toriama's drawing style made them unplayable for me.

>DQ MMO
>for the wii

Well no wonder it sold poorly. Jeez.

Don't count DQ as dead until they make a dancing or racing game. Then you can consider it dead. Though, a MMO is driving it pretty far into the ground.

Its not even necessarily DQ thats dying, its just Square Enix fucking up their games lately.

>DQ MMO for the Wii
>Final Fantasy 7 re-release with online DRM and achievments + cheat mode
>Now they tease Final Fantasy XIII-3

Its like they want the company to crumble

>still milking out the same franchises over and over again instead of going back to their roots.
Whatever happened to the final fantasies where characters had green hair?

Seriously, they're STILL milking out the final fantasy 7 franchise and they're over doing the final fantasy 13 as well?
Jeez, why won't they remake final fantasy 5 or 6 for the DS or 3DS. now THOSE were fun games.

I like Final Fantasy IX the best. (Probably because it's the only Final Fantasy I've ever played Embarassed )

They've been messing up for years. ;_;

TWEWY plushies doko. Minamimoto math daki doko. I actually would visit Hot Topic because I thought they'd wind up having some TWEWY merchandise there. Never happened. I wouldn't of minded if they milked that franchise a bit more than they did. But they didn't.

Meanwhile they shamelessly threw their KH shit everywhere in Hot Topic.

TWEWY may have Nomura Tetsuya as an artist and a fan base that loves the game, but it's not like everyone's heard of it.

If it weren't for the fact that Disney characters were involved, I'm sure tons of people would've disregarded the KH series as just another JRPG title.

I played 9.. a bit. I didn't get very far, and it started getting a bit difficult. I wanted to get back into it, but I think I need to start over or something, and build a better party. #em5

I haven't touched it in a while, and DQ IX is the only DQ game I've played. Never been too much into it.

DQ9...Is that sentinels of the starry sky? Or am I thinking of another one?

That's the last one I've played, anyway. I've been grinding for the final boss and picking up the extra jobs.
