      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.

Dragon Quest VIII This Friday on 3DS! Getting Great Reviews!!

38 posts in this topic

Well turns out Amazon fucked up my order which is a rarity so I wouldn't get it until their next shipment of games which would be 2-3 weeks from now. So I went to Best Buy and got a copy. I'll start it after I'm done catching a few more Pokémon in Moon, so addicting haha

Graphics are definitely rough on the 3DS

Is the game worth downloading? I feel burned by DQ VII and don't wanna throw another $40 away.

If you felt burned by DQ7 I lean more towards telling you not to get it. It's got a more streamline presentation, there's voice over for story dialogue, but the battle system is very identical. The pace is slightly better but it's still very much a classic JRPG type of pace. It's also a massive game so it's not something like Pokemon which you can go through in say 15-20 hours. For me, I got it because I know the Switch will have dead periods and I can play this game. Though with the Switch only being a few weeks away, I know I'm not going to beat this or try very hard to progress through it.

@Comet Does VIII play more like a traditional DQ game? Like the ones for the DS? I loved those. Something about the game mechanics of VII didn't grab me.

I'd say it's more like VII than the DS trilogy. However the story isn't anywhere near as rough in pacing as VII's
