This game is a lot like Dragon Quest.

In fact, in my opinion it has so many striking similarities to DQ it could almost be the next big game. It has an alchemy pot, tons of puns and various silliness, a big world map, cartoonish visuals, epic story, monsters to recruit and an arena to fight in, a casino, etc. Even the title exudes a DQ feel, with alliteration.

Not to mention this is no coincidence, as Level 5 helped with both DQ 8 and 9. Was all this intentional or simply unconscious inspiration? I think they should help make DQ XI on either 3DS, Wii U, or PS3/PS4.
Look alive, you fools.

The game steals elements of every successful RPG. It's like a big melting pot of success. The dragon even spins the same way the bird used to when you hit the boost. The only thing I find truly creative and new about this game is its story, which is superb in my opinion.
Dark scrolls are a lot like love.

True, I got a DQ VIII vibe while playing this. Good games, both this and DQ VIII.
Anticipating the following: MGR: Revengeance (PS3), Tales of Xillia (PS3)

Reminds me of Tetris.

First turn based RPG I know that have monster collection thing is Dragon Quest V ( Not Pokemon as most people think ), but donīt remember if the SNES version have a casino like PS2/DS games. I mention Dragon Quest V since in the begining the MC is a child, but the two worlds thing have more in common with Dragon Quest VI. TC must played only DQVIII, but that game is weak compared to V and VII.

I agree. It's very obvious. The references and borrowed jokes are everywhere. It definitely has the same kind of humor but adds a little heartwarming story.
The curry guy looks like he actually belongs to DQVIII.

Did you notice the music in the casino is the same? Or am I mistaking?
