I think it's a Best Buy price match. I think there's a thread already for BBY.

I don't even see how this can even be called a "jrpg." It has create-a-characters who don't talk and almost no plot. That puts it more in line with old western PC rpgs like Might and Magic, and DQIX does not compare favorably.

It's pretty sad to see such a venerable series take a huge step back from the excellent DQVIII. If they wanted to make a hand-held side game and call it something different then fine, but I don't like the numbered console DQ games being besmirched through association with this turd. It's similar to making Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles an official numbered game...Square avoided that for a reason.

I agree, I quit playing a bit after curing the disease...no story, very boring.

It's story is simple, but charming. Each town will have a confined story and a dilemma. You arrive to find out what the problem is, go through a few quests to fix it, then move to the next town. Rinse and repeat.

What I disliked most about the game is how easy it was. Seemed off after playing DQ8.

Get the Fuck out of this thread. DQIII had create-a-characters who don't talk and almost no plot and it is one of the finest JRPGs ever made. Though I do agree that IX is one of the weaker games in the series, you basically knocked DQIII (and many other old-school JRPGs- don't tell me Final Fantasy isn't a JRPG) and that shit isn't cool.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

Best selling DQ game of all time, IIRC. Not a turd.

As a side note... do not start a brand new game of Etrian Odyssy III after playing DQIX for 10 hours - it will make your head hurt. :shock:

Best-selling=/=Not a turd. Though DQ9 isn't a turd in the least even though many games in the series are better imo.

u mad?


And yes, I mad. Because your post was stupid and factually wrong. It's fine to have opinions about games' quality but to claim DQ9 is not a JRPG just because the story is bad and you make your own characters.... now that's a fail.

When Golden Sun: Dark Dawn came out for the DS, you could get DQ9 for $14.99 if you bought the two games together at Kmart.
Provided you did that, that was the lowest I can recall DQ9 going.
It was $17 on Black Friday at Target, though, and $19.99 at Amazon (I also want to say Amazon had it for $17 on Cyber Monday, might be wrong though).

Best RPG on the DS, period, and a worthy entry to the DQ series. The plot is light, but also a nice change from the standard RPG formula. The people you help along the course of the story become the characters, each town is a microcosm of the story and has it's own feel. It's very different but I completely loved it, so don't listen to the naysayers.

I snagged this for $20 the week of release thanks to a BB price match with TRU, they were offering a GC with purchase and BB just removed the value of the card from the overall price. Since July I've logged over 200 hours and I'm not bored yet. Get it!

I decided to go ahead and get this, I knew I should have snagged it when it was $17, oh well, its only 3 bucks I guess. Thanks OP

Quick question, will I be ok just jumping into this without any other DQ experience?
