Wow, finally dropped to 20, but after a few days of GCU expiration day, so no more extra discount :/

Still bought it, great game.

Ugh, just started another play-through of Persona 5, but couldn't pass this up.  Now to find time to actually play...

I’m not real familiar with the DQ games. Are they super grindy? The grind of Persona 5 caused me to stop playing.

Been waiting since I missed the Black Friday price.

Picked up La Noire, Mega Man 11, and Dragon Quest 11. Just need a $50 ps4 pro discount now.

This game is really long. You get a lot of bang for your buck.

Yes.

 

Also a Definitive version is coming this Fall on the Switch that includes new characters and scenarios and other extras if you want to wait it out.

You definitely do not have to grind in DQ11 to get through the main quest if you don't want to. If you play with hard mode on, sure, you may have to grind some. If you play through without the hard mode enhancements on, you certainly do not have to grind. It's actually quite easy IMHO.

 

In either case, if you want to do the post-game content, you will have to grind some.

If you’re talking about the Tim Rogers video then this is a really bad take.

I'm guessing the $19.99 was an error, considering how quickly it was fixed.  Had I not picked it up at $24 a few months back, I would have most certainly  jumped all over the $16 this morning (both prices reflect GCU).

Very good price for a great game if you like old school JRPGs! It took me around 100 hours for the platinum. DQ is one of the few game series that I can’t put down once I start playing the game.

Not grindy at all unless you play with the Hard Mode quest on, or if you’re going for the platinum. Most of the side quests are straight forward and easy to do. Even with my platinum, I only spent 4-5 hours grinding out levels and materials and had fun doing it.

Glad I saw the price mistake right before I went to sleep early this morning.

 

Should I play X before XI?

X is a MMO than hasn't been localized to the west.  XI has a standalone story anyway.  Great game, enjoy.

Couple things to know before playing DQIX.

 

* Dravanian Quest Settings can only be enabled when creating your game.

* You can turn them off anytime however.

* If you're an oldschool JRPG player, you should probably turn on super hard monsters. The difficulty level is very satisfying.

* Super Hard Monsters does more than just add extra damage, some creatures get extra turns and resistances.

* The only reward for playing with difficulty settings on is a graphical one by your save file, there are no trophies for it.

* The game is long and if you're trying to 100% it, you can go pretty leisurely and not worry about missables.

* You have longer to complete quests than it seems generally, and mini-medals can be farmed at endgame easily from a mob so you don't need to find them all.

 

I would generally avoid looking up spoilers online. There are a few good gotcha moments throughout the story that are pretty fun to experience organically. DQXI's one of my favorite games of the past 5 years. I hope you all enjoy it too. :)

Can confirm it's still $19.99 in store. I just bought it a moment ago; it was even marked at that price on the shelf.

do you guys think the definitive edition will release on PS4 or is it going to be Switch exclusive?

As of now we (sadly) have no reason to think the new features will be anything other than switch exclusive.

My copy has been sitting in my backlog since Black Friday along with my copy of Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2. Does the difficulty setting change anything with drops or rewards for materials in DQ11?
