Found this deal on GoNintendo.

Apparently, the first 7500 Reward Zone Gamers Club members to purchase "Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky" will receive a free Slime cap in the mail. Best Buy is the only store offering said hat.

Well if I didn't have a $10 coupon at Gamestop.com and Amazon I'd probably go with this. Deals for this game seem to be lacking.

TRU can be crazy. Last summer from 10-2 on release day, they had a $30 gc with the purchase of Arkham Assylum :D

They should have given a King Slime crown. I'd definitely wear that.

This comment made me spit out my drink at work. Well played, sir. In a semi-related note, the original Puzzle Quest did help me get laid.

Wouldn't a slime doll be more appropriate for DQ? What's with the hat promos lately (Persona 3 PSP comes to mind)?

TRU has done way crazier gift card deals than that. Hell, they gave $15 back for SCRIBBLENAUTS, much less Dragon Quest.

You do realize that your sentence is missing a noun right? To some uneducated what? I think you might be one of those uneducated PEOPLE.

Back on topic, I actually like the hat. I find the dragon quest slime to be a very iconic character. I love my DS stlyus with the slime on the end.

Wow, this thread is rich with lulz.

It should've been a beanie shaped and colored like a slime (I think they did that once before...?), but yes, this hat will keep you a virgin.

It could have been a simple oversight. Or, he possibly intended to use "uneducated" as a plural noun, with "people" inferred. This is a pretty common occurrence; black people and white people are often referred to as simply "blacks" and "whites" (SteveGo: "black WHAT?!?! white WHAT?!?!"). For future reference, note that grammar isn't static and bending the rules usually fine.


Also, your pretty gay if you like that hat. Whoops! I meant "you're!"

I hope there is some damn bonus with this game. Seriously, this is bullshit we aren't getting any game credit for such a high profile release such as this.

I can assure you that I am heterosexual and like the hat. But keep trolling pal, you're well on your way.
