Delving Into…

Delving Into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #1 - For one reason or another, fatherhood has always been a popular subject to explore through video games. Interestingly, when fatherhood is presented in a positive light (as opposed to stories of, for example, abusive or absent fathers) it tends to be with the player in the role of said father, rather than the child. But … Continue reading Delving Into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #1
Delving into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #2 - I’m about ten hours deep into Hand of the Heavenly Bride at the time of writing… and it’s been a highly enjoyable adventure so far. Last time, we talked a bit about how the prologue chapter of the game represents an interesting exploration of childhood and fatherhood. Now that my adventure “proper” is well underway, … Continue reading Delving into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #2
Delving Into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #3 - Exciting things have been happening in the world of Dragon Quest V, and I am thoroughly enraptured with this game. I can’t remember the last RPG that managed to make one’s adventure feel so simultaneously personal and meaningful to the broader context in which the narrative unfolds. But Hand of the Heavenly Bride does a wonderful job at this … Continue reading Delving Into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #3
Delving Into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #4 - I think I’m nearing the end of Hand of the Heavenly Bride. It’s just a feeling I have. As we’ve previously discussed, Dragon Quest is not generally a series for making a huge deal out of significant narrative moments, preferring to allow you to draw your own meaning from them rather than attempting to force you to … Continue reading Delving Into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #4
Delving into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #5 - I haven’t had as much time as I’d like to play Dragon Quest recently, but I took the time to play some at lunchtime today, and it reminded me of some things I’d like to talk about. What I’m going to talk about today relates to the series as a whole, but with the release … Continue reading Delving into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #5
Delving into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #6 - Okay, I got it wrong. I have not yet finished Hand of the Heavenly Bride, nor was I near to doing so. Well, actually, that might not quite be true. But I have been getting a little distracted on my way to what I can only assume is the final boss: first with grinding to get Bianca … Continue reading Delving into Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride – #6
