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.
30 Mar 14:47 2017
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%!

Grinded this game out as a kid, can't see myself doing it again for cheevos

This game is not for everyone. Grind is a art for some....
19 Apr 18:54 2017
Lol, so true, cosmo1
31 May 2:08 2017
Grinding is easy, hard is this death necklace. :v

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.

Hi!Random cheevos unlocked after death - Thou Hast Gained A Level (5),Thou Hast Learnt a Spell (7),Thou Hast No Need for Torches (8),Thou Hast Seen Sunlight (10).Retroarch(1.6.7),mesen-core.

Am I the only one who thinks 5 naming achievements is overkill? I mean the game only has 3 save slots.
27 Apr 1:36 2018
Finally MASTERED :D
22 Jul 4:39 2018
after three hours of grinding I accidentally hit CTRL-R which resets the game making me lose all that time went from level 20 to 9
26 Oct 9:12 2018
Mastered. Pretty satisfying.
26 Jan 7:18 2019
This game was a pure slog to finish.
2 Sep 5:43 2019
fucking gay you changed the icon for completion
2 Sep 22:31 2019
S-E-L-L-O-U-T
4 Oct 20:52 2019
Mastered!
10 Feb 15:41 2020
lmao i never knew you could bring the princess to the dragonlord! XD
13 Mar 8:24 2020
I suppose the multiple endings can be missed? Which ones are missable, if any?
23 Mar 9:15 2020
Mastered! On game completion, it doesn't save, which means you can miss on the princess achievements if you return it before getting those for NOT returning her, and "returning her in tow".
23 Mar 9:17 2020
Therefore your required (minimum?) endings, while not having returned her : Accept dragonlords' offer, "be a jerk to women", and finally "return with bagage".
