Madame Cherie

  • Madame Cherie is a professor at L’Academie de Notre Maitre les Medailles.

There’s just so many changes that help make the game smoother and more streamlined and more enjoyable, like when picking up items they go directly into your bag, or purchasing materials you need at the Fun Sized Forge which, btw, can also be used anywhere. Triple battle speed, shiny spots standing out more, calling the horse any time, immediately getting mats from gathering points, photo mode, seeing status effects when rotating in characters, not to mention transmog for outfits, the new orchestral music, 2D mode (and not just the entire game being playable in 16-bit SNES graphics, but also additional content and quests for all 10 previous Dragon Quest games with worlds reconstructed in 2D being integrated into the main game, so even if you never switch to the 2D mode you still get a hefty taste of it by just playing the game through normally), another 4-5 hours of extra content via character quests... it’s a lot. Really makes one appreciate this version of the game, and that’s without even accounting for the fact the game can be played as both a console and handheld game and anything in between by virtue of just being a Switch game.

I'll be honest: photo mode stinks. Actually, after Horizon: Zero Dawn, I'm finding the photo modes in various games to be underwhelming. It's so customizable in HZD, and allows you capture screenshots that look like total bullshots. It's great.

Whaaat? Photo mode rocks! It beats the pants off just taking screenshots normally, at least. It lets you rearrange the characters, emote, face the camera, etc etc. What’s not to like?

I’m sure other games have really elaborate photo modes (Super Mario Odyssey, Final Fantasy XV, etc) but that doesn’t detract from the fact that any photo mode imo, even more basic ones, are cool. I use it all the time. In fact, I appreciate its brevity. Easy in, easy out. Not really the kind of person that spends 15 minutes forging the perfect shot, so I just want something that makes the HUD go away and the characters rearrange and pose. It’s basically the same as what was in Dragon Quest Builders 2 (which I also used for all my shots). I mean, the alternative is not having one at all, which was the case in the original release. So I appreciate its inclusion even if it falls short of other, more spectacular photo modes. It’s basic, for sure, but it gets the job done and is still useful and appreciated.

Little control over how the characters are positioned. Little control over how the camera is positioned. No filters. Extremely limited ability to manipulate how characters are posed.

I've taken some great screenshots, but almost none of those were in the photo mode.

Thankfully, I love virtually everything else about the game. I'm not sure if it's my favorite current-gen JRPG yet, but it's really darned close.

I guess I’m just not looking for all that, like specific poses or positioning, as I never use photo mode beyond cleaning up the shot from the HUD and getting the characters facing the camera, centered, with some nice scenery in the background. Which to that end, it serves its purpose.

Given the alternative is not having anything at all, at the end of the day it’s an addition and an improvement that wasn’t there before, and one that I, at least, use for 95% of my screenshots, so it’s definitely brought value to the table for me.

One of my favorite things in this game are the monster designs and animations. Like when the little crabs cower in fear and guard their face with their pincers, or when a monster makes your team member start dancing, or how the slimes will just run off sometimes cause their buddies are getting whooped. It’s got to be the most charming JRPG I’ve ever played. And I love how if you press A next to a sign but from the backside, it’ll say “Jaxon tries to read the sign” ............ “but he’s standing on the wrong side!!” Lol that kinda stuff kills me. “Jaxon tries to open the dresser” ............ “but he’s standing behind it!!” Lol like, Jaxon’s such a moron! It opens from the other side you dimwit 😂The dresser one was from DQVII but, I’m sure it’s the same here given the sign messages.

This game is getting better and better (I'm 30+ hours in)!

Got to Yggdrasil and got treated to some excellent plot twists and now it seems that Sylvando will be the main character for a while. Yey! 😃

Oh my god I got to a town with several tourists that have the thickest most hilariously stereotypical United States accent sprinkled with random actual-English words here and there, and it’s like, I love this.

@StableInvadeel Yes lol. Im playing in Spanish too. I can tell you the localization team of the Dragon Quest franchise (at least in Spanish) is pure gold. I'm in the same city as well.

Only a couple hours in here. Just escaped prison and teamed up with Erik. Playing XI makes my desire to play X a little easier to cope with. This Switch port is masterful.

Finished all the content including Tickington, the new super-boss and the secret Wheel of Harma trial. Over the 100 hour mark. I'm not quite ready to put the game down yet, maybe I'll work on farming more seeds for more 999 stats and I still have a few YouTube videos potentially left to make.

LOL! So now I'm a fish. I love this game for being serious and silly at the same time.
