I know this is referencing a particular JRPG franchise, but for the life of my I cannot figure out which one. Hmm…

  • Pocket Lord Sephirjon

    I think it’s referencing Dragon Quest.

    • name_go_here

      I’m gonna have to resepctfully disagree with you on account that they don’t look like Dragon Ball (Z/GT)characters.

      • Jeff

        Which is the (admittedly probably petty) reason I’ve never given those games a chance. Hate that art style (and show, but that’s a different can of worms).

        • Painstream

          It’s more than just the art style. While I appreciated DQ1-4, the games never bothered to advance at a pace that many other series did. Even the later games had the same tired mechanics. The sin of looking like DBZ just adds to the pain.

        • Falos

          Petty you say? If you guys are assuming Toriyama (original designs) was responsible for the direction DBZ/GT/etc(?) went, I suppose petty could apply. It’d be like blaming Stan Lee for what [superhero] did in [deviant comic] though, or blaming Rick Astley for rickrolling.

          But missing out on Chrono Trigger over him would be a whole different level of misplaced resentment. It is highly advisable that you guys set aside petty cosmetics and give that title a chance, for your own sake.

          As for DQ: I’unno, haven’t played, give me a 28-hour day and I’ll gladly play them all.

    ‘Leather Goddesses of Phobos’ is my guess.
