Oh man hello PS2 AV settings on a 10 year old Flatscreen
it actually has moving scan lines and white noise. Might be my original wire going out

Who am being so judgemental, Xiahou Shake?

So yea, you know the rules, I'll try to update this topic with my progress. I would appreciate no spoilers UNLESS I'm about to miss something thats....well, missable. Then by all means

My only other DQ under my belt was DQV. It was cool. I married Bianca and recruited monsters

So yea, we're being thrown straight into the adventure here

Fat Garlic Jr and Olaf the terrible with Dragonball kid

also Mouse with Mohawk

I remember years ago, maybe like 2005? You could sign up for something on Square's website and they would send you a demo disc of this game

I remember ....straight falling asleep while playing it

but then the next day I gave it another chance and I ended up beating it. The only thing I remember is that there was ALOT to explore. in just the one town alone. I remember being disappointed that I couldn't save my progress for the real game

there was the Slime Knights website where Square paid people like me with PS2 games to spread hype of DQ8 around the internet.

It would be weird for them to send a demo of the game in 2005 when it came out in 2004

ah, I guess it was this town in the demo

I remember reading a book and it said HUZZUH in it

that was the first time I had ever seen that word and the book was in the church

my PS2 controller is apparently slightly broken. The X Button doesn't work so well unless I press down on it rather firmly

this will make exploring a pain in the ass

the fact that you can go through the backdoor of establishments and steal money from behind the counter is hilarious

I hope no invisible point value s*** or some Chrono Trigger court is happening
