Ran into my first glitch.

I had just entered the tower east of Arcadia, and whenever I pushed the statue the slime was trying to move, I coudn't do anything (couldn't move it more, let go, move the camera, or bring up the menu or photograph feature). The music was still playing though, and it wasn't frozen per se, because the MC's eyes would still blink, it's just that none of the buttons were doing anything.

@RR529

Is that the place you go when you're helping the prince?
I'm about to get to that.

@Dezzy, if you're referring to Charmles, then no, this is quite a bit after that.

Anyhow, it's no issue now. Next time I went there I had no issues whatsoever.

You failed at spoilering

So, any ideas on how to build up cash relatively quickly?

It's tougher to grind for than experience, as monsters generally give out less of it, and I haven't found a "metal slime" equivalent for gold. Plus, Yangus' "Penny Pencher" ability isn't all that reliable or effective for building up a large amount.

Not only that, but gold isn't an award in the Casinos or Monster Arena, and I'm afraid to sell anything due to potential Alchemy use.

I'm used to the PS2 game, not 3DS, but it was always the Gold Golems. I seem to recall they are on quite a large island in the middle-ish of the map. Sorry I can't remember more than that.

Sorry for the double post, but as I'm around the 70 hour mark, decided I'd share some.

In terms of the main story, I last completed the Dark Empyrea's Erie dungeon, and defeated Gemon.

Also obtained your method of air travel, which is actually quite cool, though a bit wonky to control (really opens up the world to exploration, though). Also obtained the ability to summon a mount anywhere in the world, which allows you to traverse land really fast. I won't spoil what it is or how you get it, but it's really cool.

Sorry for the triple post, but at 100 hours in, I finished up the main story. Won't go into large detail yet, as I want to clear the post game stuff first, but I really enjoyed it.

It went really fast for me, not feeling like 100 hours, and despite the fact that Little Battlers Experience is sitting on my shelf unopened, I jumped right into the post game, which just goes to show how much I enjoyed it.

...After a lot of debate, I've decided to give this one a pass for now. From what I've read both here and elsewhere, the game is a true masterpiece. However, the general length is off-putting for me when I have so many other games to play through that I already own; my backlog isn't astronomical compared to some, but I'm trying to get it to shrink. XD

Since both IV and V are available off of SE's store, I've decided to have one of those be my first foray into Dragon Quest instead. They seem to be generally shorter (according to howlongtobeat), but I'm having trouble picking between the two. Any suggestions?

Finally decided to move on, I had a good time with it, but I finally finished up the post game content I needed to get the ending I wanted, Jessica marriage!, so I'm done for now.

@Tyranexx, as it so happens, IV & V are the two other entries I've played!

Both are really good, each with a unique narrative structure (in IV you play a little quest with each party member before playing as the MC and meeting them in the grander quest. While in V you start out as a kid travelling with your father, and you grow up and start your own family as you go along).

I'd personally start with IV out of the two though. While a bit more archaic in spots (that yeti boss...), it was the shorter of the two from my experience, and IV, V, and VI form a trilogy of sorts (They're still independent story wise, but share some important locations/items that are unique to the three. Nothing more than the references that connect the Zelda games, for example).

@RR529: Ah, you mean the Zenithian Trilogy. IV's episodic nature would fit my playstyle a bit better, but I'm also intrigued by the "grow with the story" aspects of V. IV is the cheaper of the two right now (unless SE has another sale), so I may opt for trying out the series with that game. Thanks for the feedback!

Ordered this in February, but it wasn't available at the time. But I kept my order and now it's finally on its way. Heard a lot of great things about this game and really love DQXI, so can't wait to play this.
