Gotta love Dragon Quest VIII (DQ8). This is the console role playing game that I have been dreaming about since I first learned about the original Dragon Warrior (the first Dragon Quest… it was renamed “Dragon Warrior” for U.S. release). Great story, good battle system, awesome graphics (cel shaded and the character designs, like all other Dragon Quest games, was done by Akira Toriyama)… what else could you ask for?
The game also came with a demo disk for Final Fantasy XII. That wasn’t bad, what I played, but there’s nothing about it that screamed “great” either. With how much I’m loving DQ8, unless they are decide to package Final Fantasy XII with the second coming of Christ, I don’t think its going to be the better of the two.
