A year after our first special, we return with a face-to-face nerdgasm over Enix’s supreme RPG franchise.
So once again, we said "well, why not?" Why not go ahead and do another Crunk Games special, this time on another game series that had a recent anniversary — Dragon Quest! And so, Alex sat with me to discuss [almost] the entirety of the series, going game-by-game just as we did with PSO.
For those of you who read issue 2 of my magazine, SCROLL — which was also about the DQ anniversary and if you didn’t read it now’s a great time — a lot of what we talk about will sound like a broken record to you, and there’s a good chance you’re just generally sick of all the Dragon Quest talk since the spring! Well, at least the DQX talk is new, and this is all a lot less formalized.Thrill at Alex’s ridiculous DQ-related childhood stories! Listen to selections from Dragon Quest albums! Cringe at how amused we are with ourselves!
Ten games is a lot of ground to cover; doubly so when you have us jackasses braying on about them. So, despite editing, this show runs two and a half hours. People either love or hate that kind of length, but like our last show, this podcast features chapter skips if you listen on an Apple player, and this time we’ve added more "art" (goofy pictures) for the skips as well, so it shouldn’t be too hard to pick up where you left off. –Ray Barnholt
