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.

As for haps, no major haps but I'm thinking about stuff.  Like does the nature of the person who made a craft affect how much you like the craft?  For example, do you like a band's music less if the people in the band are douchey?

Is this about Koichi Sugiyama?

But yeah, try not to let it affect your self-esteem. You're still you no matter what people think!

Sunset over Heliodor...:


...and the view from the rooftop:


Beautiful Heliodoran architecture (I want to live in one of these houses!):

So, like, is this where we'll be sharing our screencaps or what?
