Dragon Quest will celebrate its 30th anniversary in December

Dragon Quest is an institution in Japan. A 30 year institution actually. Although the west doesn't get every game right away, in Japan, a DQ release is a holiday to be celebrated. It's personal for me too -- Dragon Warrior was my ...   read

Square Enix promises to bring more Dragon Quest titles to the West

Dragon Quest Builders turned out better than I would have expected given its block-laying influences, and I'm already hoping for a sequel that gives us more of the same, essentially, just with added co-op support. You too? Another spinoff, ...   read

Review: Dragon Quest Builders

Review in Progress: Dragon Quest Builders

I had the chance to preview Dragon Quest Builders recently, and it left me wanting more. Initially I thought that there was a chance the game was front-loaded, and that after that honeymoon period passed, things would potentially devolve in...   read

Review: Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past (3DS)

While the first Dragon Quest was the first JRPG I ever played, I never really got into the series until over a decade later. In the world of DQ, I was a dedicated tourist -- present, but almost never at launch like I was for Final Fant...   read

My time with Dragon Quest Builders was delightful, yet simple

With the runaway success Minecraft has had, I don't blame many eastern studios for trying to emulate the formula. It's gotten to the point where a new voxel-like sandbox game pops up every few weeks or so, and even Square Enix is getti...   read

Dragon Quest Builders localization confirmed, actually includes Vita!

Poor, poor Vita. If only you hadn't launched with awful proprietary expensive memory cards against the dirt cheap generic SD card support of the 3DS. Maybe we'd be looking at a different timeline, a less dark timeline, that involved I Am Se...   read

Dragon Quest's 30th anniversary is coming, Square Enix is livestreaming it

The very first RPG I ever played was the original Dragon Quest (Dragon Warrior in the west) on the NES. I was immediately drawn to the golems and slimes, and even though I'd gravitate more towards other franchises like Chrono Trigger a...   read
