      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

I'm not planning to get it. It's a good game but I'm not interested in replaying it (that's my experience with DQ in general).

Yeah, we knew that a while back, didn't we? 

 

Kind of a bummer. I still really love 3D, but...eh. This game didn't have 3D back when it first came out, so it's no worse now without it. And if the Switch is really replacing Nintendo's handhelds, we may as well get used to a non-3D future.

Maybe. Depends on the price. Depends on what games are announced. And most importantly, it depends on availability! Hopefully the Switch won't be as hard to find as the NES Classic. :|

I'm hoping to order one online when they are up after the presentation tomorrow, but I will say that I am not going to quit playing 3ds anytime soon, I'm into dq7 and have dq8 arriving on 29th, so I'm still busy with 3ds for months...probably til end of 2017...still need to pick up pokemon moon too..

 

edit: also that oasis rpg comes out in March for 3ds

@Mike

 

I bet that it will look pretty sweet. Square-Enix made DragonQuest IX look FANTASTIC on the original DS, so I'm guessing they'll make this one look even better on 3DS. 

 

It's strange, there aren't that many cel-shaded games on 3DS, now that I think about it. I thought there would be more, but I guess that's not gonna happen.

My copy just arrived. After reading reviews last night, I'm really itching to play it, but I'm determined to finish VII first!

I'm trying to hang in there. I've got VIII on PS2, but like so many others, I've never gotten around to playing it. The 3DS version has a lot of appealing changes to it.

 

I really do enjoy VII, despite it being slow at times. I'm around 50 hours in, so I really do want to finish it.

Started playing this morning, I'm having a very good time. About 4 hours in right now. Me playing my 3DS is a very rare thing. I don't even know why I bought the New 3DS edition. But I'm happy to be playing this.
