How Dragon Quest Swords got me into Dragon Quest

Dragon Quest has been one of my favorite RPG series for about a decade. Simple, idealistic fairy tales resonated with me in my childhood the same way colorful, idealistic shonen anime worlds did in my college years, so it’s little won...

The Dragon Quest rhythm game we never got to play

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is one of my favorite Final Fantasy games. I frankly only really enjoy two or three games in the series, so the best part for me is the music. I can’t think of a single game in the series that doesn’t h...

Dragon Quest XI seems well worth the wait

E3 is a rather lousy place to play Dragon Quest XI for the first time. Sessions are limited to just 15 minutes, and with two small maps to explore with a bevy of points of interest, a single session isn't even a proper amount of t...

Dragon Quest XI is going to be one hell of an adventure

There is something about the Dragon Quest theme song that, no matter what mood I am in, will brighten me up and make the next hour or so of my life truly wonderful. That's the mood I'm in now having seen the new trailer Square Enix re...

Dragon Quest's legends littered with lighthearted levity

Role-playing games are usually lauded for dramatic storytelling first and foremost. Sure, there’s a lot of comic relief in our favorite RPGs, but “serious story” tends to be what defines them most. It’s what most of ...

Dragon Quest Builders is just as delightful on Switch

I was skeptical of Dragon Quest Builders when it was first announced, but Square Enix's take on the sandbox genre ended up hitting the mark. It's not just Minecraft through the lens of Dragon Quest as some initially feared -- there's a prop...
