Wow.  Cool, yeah, I'll definitely fast track it then, in that case.

Sorry @Rucks , but I do believe I mentioned that it bored me to death.  However, that was after giving it like.... 2 hours?  Maybe slightly less.

I still want to play it again now that my attention span has evened out in my old age.  But I'm not sure what the best way to do that is.

Frosty with the logical insight, as usual

Oh, I'm sure it'll look great on Switch.  It's not like it's pushing a trillion polygons, the beauty comes from the design, art direction, and magnificent lighting.

It's a regular ol' PS4.  Do my screenshots look bad or something?

Anyone in the mood for some light reading and a nap?  I sure am now:



I'm gonna file this one under "Not A Well-Informed Decision":



Yet more glorious architecture and world design:



Definitely nothing important in this photo:



Really adorable cafe looks cozy:

As for Draconian Challenges, I've taken them all up except for the not wearing Armor one

But why??

Dragon Quest XI

Man.

This game.

I think I've taken like 50 screencaps already and I'm barely 1/4 through the story.  That's how gorgeous it is.  The story is a bit broad (I blame silent protag) and definitely cliché at times, but the characters are fantastic, the world is superlative, and only 30 (very slow) hours in and I have already felt moved nearly to tears on 3 separate occasions.

Truly, everything outside of the OST has been perfect or near-perfect.

Man, I want to go camping now (in pristine, bugless conditions of course):



Although it seems like Erik is getting sick of it:



Maybe some shopping at a beautiful market will cheer him up:



Adventuring in paradise with my noble steed:



Where the heck did my paradise go?

The perfect picture of parochial paradise:



Anyone up for a picnic with me under that tree?



Do I spy a shady fishing spot?



Yes, I do!



You can almost feel the ocean breeze coming off this screencap.  I wonder if that place in the distance is important?



But wait, how did I get here?  Why does the ocean look different?  Hmmmm....

I have already 777MB of screenshots of dqxi on my ps4.
btw 2 more weeks till vc4 release. Playing demo 1 month before release was mistake.

I have no clue what level I'm at but it's high!  And I feel you on VC4.  How am I going to play both?

People only have kids because they're searching for some shred of meaning in their existence.

I like how you said that so matter-of-factly, when it's really more complicated than that, in many cases. Most aspects of life look more simple from the outside, indeed.

It might maybe be somewhat possible that I was being glib and wrong.

Nice.  Are you playing this on PS 4 Arvis?

Yes, I am. :)


35 hours in and where has the time gone? I haven't enjoyed a game this much this since XenobladeX.
Ha ha!  It's funny, that game keeps coming to mind when I play this, even though they're completely different.  I think it's the joy of exploring a richly detailed and handcrafted world.
