DQ4 is my favorite, easily. I'd say it's the only one I've truly enjoyed, and I've played through 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, (most of) 7 and 9.

I'm loving it so far. Right now, I'm trying to build up some cash for Torneko in Chapter 3. :badbone:

I beat Dragon Quest II over the weekend and started playing Dragon Quest IV. I'm on a roll! :badbone:

I have to say, I'm having more fun playing these games than I have in a long time.

I beat Dragon Quest III the other day, and started playing Dragon Quest II (Square Enix finally patched it, so it doesn't crash every time you defeat a group of the same type of enemy). I'm really liking this series so far.

Currently re-playing all three Mass Effect games, they're one of my favorite series. It's been a while since I've touched them so I'm actually finding them quite enjoyable again.

Nice! Those are some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them as much the second time around.

Are you doing anything differently this time?

While I'm playing Resident Evil 2 at home, I've been playing the Dragon Quest games on my phone during my breaks at work and on the bus. I beat Dragon Quest the other day, and Dragon Quest II has a bug on the iPhone, so I'm playing Dragon Quest III. They're simple, but entertaining.

This gives me hope that we'll get Anna and Gennon as DLC.

I recommend you to take the view that these hiatuses are what it takes in order for the story to not just meet our highest expectations, but continually surpass them. Each one of these episodes will forever be a masterpiece. When considered on that scale, the six months it'll take for them to come out shouldn't bother us.

Oh, I do. Don't get me wrong, I'm just bummed that it's going away for a while again. I'd rather wait than have Miura rush anything.

Besides, I've been following Berserk episodically since 2004, so I'm used to breaks in publication. It just means it's time to re-read the series again. :guts:

I can't help but be disappointed, considering where we are in the story, but like Walter said, at least we know when it's coming back. :serpico:

Brilliant. It's good to have you back, sir.

I highly recommend the remastered version.  I'm not 100% sure it's on ps3, but it is essentially the same game, just prettier in every way.

I plan on playing the remastered version eventually, but I want to play the original before I do.

@ Death May Die
Graphics from the 90s have never been a problem for me (after all, I've been playing video games since the 80s); they just add to the flavor. I don't mind the simplified controls, either. It'll be a nice change of pace from the more modern games I've been playing.

I've become bored with Final Fantasy XIII, so I'm venturing on to the Resident Evil series (which I've never played), starting with the first Resident Evil. The PSN only has the Greatest Hits version of the game (which I've heard has a terrible soundtrack), so I purchased a physical copy of the Director's Cut. I just hope it runs well on my PS3.

hi and good morning to everyone.
 I'm Italian, i'm sorry for my bad English .
i have see that there isn't morda , do you think could become an enemy?

Nah, I don't think so. I imagine she'll be accompanying the group to Falconia at some point, but it's hard to know for sure at this point.

the Guts/puk's bejelit in which episode  did it appeared?

It appeared at the end of the first Desire's Guardian Angels episode in volume one.

Ok so for reference the element of weight is called "Barytes" (in Japanese: "バリュテース"). It's from the Greek word "βαρύτης", itself derived from "βαρύς", which means "heavy".

In real life, it's a mineral (commonly called "baryte" or "barite" in English) that is the main source of barium in the world. But more interestingly for us, it used to be a big deal in the alchemical world when it was discovered that a certain type of it can glow in the dark. They used to call them Bologna Stones, because the first one was found near Bologna in Italy. Anyway, this has no direct bearing on Berserk's own world but it's where Miura got the name.

Please note that it is not pronounced like the English word "baryte", as Miura based it on the original Greek word (same thing than for the "Idea" in "Idea of Evil"). To an English speaker, it should sound like "ba-ree-tess".

Thanks for the explanation, Aaz!

So after much brow-furrowing (just like the Puck family), it is hereby decreed that the most accurate title for the Elf Queen is: Sovereign of the Flower Storm.
It's a mouthful, I know, but it's what best conveys the proper meaning of it.

I like it. :guts:

I couldn't help but notice the parallels between Misty Valley and Elfhelm, and the Sovereign of the Flower Storm and Rochine, either. Miura is great at that sort of thing. I hadn't thought about a parallel between Griffith and the Sovereign of the Flower Storm, though. That's an interesting idea.

I finished reading The Walking Dead: Compendium Three, read Summer of Night and am in the middle of reading Children of the Night. It's been tough getting through it, though, because I'm in the middle of writing a novel myself. Every time I sit down to read, I feel guilty about not writing. :void:

What an episode! I can't wait to see the pages close-up when I get home from work (right now I'm looking at them on my phone). It's this type of episode that keeps me in awe of Miura's genius. The art is incredible, and so is the storytelling.

I love that Danan turned out to be the Queen/Sovereign/Ruler of the Flower Storm. Her design is incredible and I love that her reveal was tied to the conclusion of Puck and Magnifico's scheme. (I love that Guts is the only one who doesn't react when Puck assumes the throne. He's been with him on the road too long to be fooled by his antics. :guts:)
