Everything in this game is trying to waste your time.I really don't understand how that shit become so popular. If you are not brainless fan, DO NOT play that.

Word to the wise - turning up emulation speed makes the game more playable and doesn't affect Hardcore mode. I played most of the game at 200% and did the final grind at 400%!

There was once a time when Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy competed, and they were better for it. Now they work together, but without rivalry they just aren't what they used to be.

Am I the only one who thinks 5 naming achievements is overkill? I mean the game only has 3 save slots.
