I've been collecting anime-related and other Japanese figures since around 2000, although I've been into anime for longer than that, and a collector in general for even longer.

Current collecting interests include: Oreimo SegaPrize, MegaTen prize/kuji figures, arcade prize figures in general, Petanko, Cu-Poche, Parfom, figma, Nendoroid, Dragon Quest sofubi, Pokedolls, and, as usual, game music.

Previous profile themes: Project DIVA F (Sept. 10, 2012 - July 27, 2013)

I think it's allowed.
It says that no doujinshi are allowed.
But Nyantype is a officeles magazine / book it is not a doujinshi.

R_Kasahara (6 days ago) #2351185Oh dear, I think you might've misunderstood me-- I meant the DQVII remake for 3DS! Apparently, it's a massive game to localize, and Squeenix doesn't think it'll make its money back. Rocket Slime 2 is up in the air as well, though that seems to have a better chance, and at this point, seems like the remake of the first DQ Monsters game won't ever come out here :/ Sometimes, I wish that XSEED was running the show when it came to Squeenix (and Capcom) localizations in limbo.
(As for a potential FFVII remake, no way do I want one, given that Squeenix will find some way to shoehorn some of those Compilation retcons in there. I'd rather see FFV remade, anyway…)
I just can't buy PAKs anymore :/ The prototypes always look nice but are lacking in their final forms. And those prices keep going higher and higher. Think I'll stick to admiring the official shots here at MFC ^^

Ah, I did misunderstand you. ^_^'
It's really very sad that the DQ games never caught on much outside Japan. They have a great sense of atmosphere that most games just don't have; like you really are adventuring in a fantastic world. All of the online games try for that, but I believe that the DQ series accomplished it before anything else did. Not only that, but everything about them retains a level of constancy by using the same character designer, music arranger, etc. Wasn't aware that Squeenix was even considering localization for DQ VII, but considering how dialog heavy the DQ series usually is, not surprising that it's such a massive undertaking. Squeenix, afraid of not making their gil back? What, like they probably did with those craptastic FF XIII games? In my opinion, the worst FF games ever. And how much cash did they cough up by re branding FF 13 Versus as FF 15? Versus was announced the same time the first FF 13 was!

FF 7 remake: I can handle Kadaj and the other Jenovans, even the newer Turks. Wasn't crazy about the extras from Dirge of Cerberus. Wouldn't mind seeing some Grimoire Valentine though. :3

XSeed. The only game I have is Shadow Hearts: From the New World. Not sure if you've played it, but that was one strange little game. XD

I understand what you're saying about the PAKS, just that my Balthier is lonely and needs his Viera partner. I hate how shiny the paint on the newer PAKS are, but not that Squeenix has ever had any consistency with their paint jobs. They are charging stupid money for their figures now though, I remember when PA used to be the best figure deals at Cons.

R_Kasahara (8 days ago) #2348246Thanks for your comments ^^ As for the DQVC, ugh, I'd forgotten that Nintendo/Squeenix did that. Unfortunately, that sort of thing seems to be all too common these days with so many games sporting online features, even in single-player.
Love Dragon Quest in general, though. I'm really hoping the VII remake gets localized, but it doesn't look good :/ Have you got a favorite in that series? Mine is DQV-- the story is amazing!

You're welcome! :D

While Squeenix has been treating the DQ franchise like it's their red headed stepchild, it was their decision to cut the DQVC, not Nintendo. Squeenix has been going through all kinds of issues over the past several years. Their Square-Enix Members site went from being this delightful close knit community to being the most non-user friendly website on the planet. Even some of the site Mods were expressing frustration at all of the changes this company has gone through lately. (And yes there was disgust at the fact that right after Sqeenix merged the NA and Europe sites, that they took the DQVC offline. ) On the bright side, they did listen to the fans and brought Bravely Default state side! Haven't played this...yet.

DQ IX is my favorite! Love the high level of customization, and all of those never ending treasure maps. Those Gem Slimes do vex, they're just like Cactuar. >_< DQ VIII was my first, not the easiest game in the world, but I loved how you could get lost just running around and smacking stuff. I have VI and V, but right now they're sitting in my "to play" pile. Too busy playing with the Pokemon-amie.
About the VII remake: if the fans clamor enough, it will come. Squeenix Members has been awful quiet lately though.

PAKS: Play Arts were my first figures, didn't discover figmas until much later. They're finally gonna make Cid? Now we need Rude! And Wakka! Not too crazy about PAKS, but love that new AC Chocoboy, and Fran is a NEED.

Thanks for sharing your FFVII doujinshi collection with us! Really made my day seeing it. Also noticed that you've got a number of DQ items as well, DQ IX has been my favorite installment thus far. Wasn't too happy when Squeenix took down the DQVC since I had started a new game. It wouldn't have taken too much effort to have kept it up and running.
