Description

Let's talk about Dragon Quest. The 33-year-old JRPG series has its hooks in us, and we're okay with that. Austin is playing through the whole series and blogging about it, and Beej is discovering and adoring the series right on his heels. From metal slime hunting to beautiful art books to trying to fiddle with a Japanese Nintendo 3DS, we are having an amazing adventure with the series, and we want to share that with you.

Like all Geek to Geek shows, we keep a clean rating. DQ is about fun for us, and if you can play DQ with your kiddos, you can listen to our Dragon Quest Podcast with them too Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dragonquest/support

Early in the year, way before DQFM was a twinkle in our eyes, Austin and Beej did a Dragon Quest podcast for Beej’s other show, Geek to Geek. Austin was just started off on his yearlong journey to play every mainline Dragon Quest game. Since Austin has had a crazy birthday week and Beej is off to the beach for his 10th wedding anniversary, y’all get the privilege of listening to what might be considered a trial run for your favorite? DQ podcast (this one, in case that wasn’t clear).

This week, we’ve got a special episode for our Patreon patron, Ty. We have a thoughtful and friendly discussion about Final Fantasy versus Dragon Quest. We thought it’d be cool to compare numbered Final Fantasy games to its DQ counterparts. We’re both Final Fantasy fans as well, so it was cool to get to discuss I-XI and talk about their strengths and weaknesses.Along the way, we talk about familiar tropes in each series, how the games influenced one another at different times, and which games within the series we find overrated (and underrated). We also talk about the cool Dragon Quest XI body art Austin’s aunt did (link is below), and then it’s back to discussing some of our favorite characters from each series, and why we love the games we do.Purple People Painter on Facebook and Instagram:  https://www.facebook.com/purplepeoplepainters/photos/a.132841073487842/2128230713948858/?type=3&theaterhttps://www.instagram.com/p/B2hqOpEAceU/Boss Fights Book on Final Fantasy V: https://amzn.to/30gZkOT--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/dragonquest/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dragonquest/support
Just in time for the new release of Dragon Quest Monsters + Volume 4, which releases in English on September 17th, we’re bringing you an episode all about DQ Manga! We’ve been talking about it for a while, and now it’s finally here! For today, we’re mostly just talking about the Dragon Quest Monsters + manga, but we hope to do an episode on things like Emblem of Roto and others later on.We really love Dragon Quest Monsters + (especially Austin), so this episode is really just us trying to get more people to read it. Because of that, we try to avoid any major plot spoilers or character spoilers.We start off by giving a brief synopsis of the series, and then talking about what makes it so great. We also answer questions like “What if I don’t like manga?” and “What’s the series even about?” Along the way, we bring up other manga series like Sgt. Frog, Dragon Quest e no Michi (Road to Dragon Quest), and Final Fantasy: Lost Stranger.Toward the end, we discuss some cute DQ charms (you can find the link at the bottom), DQM+ callbacks to the mainline Dragon Quest series, Austin’s only complaint with the manga, and how Austin wishes Taco Bell would sponsor them.
