The Weekly Stuff Podcast #265 – Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Spoiler Discussion

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

In this pre-recorded post-Thanksgiving episode, we finally sit down to talk about one of our favorite games of the year, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. After 100 hours apiece and many happy memories, we have both completed this epic JRPG experience, and have a lot to say about what is easily one of the genre’s greatest accomplishments. We’ve talked about the game without spoilers a few times before, but for this episode, we go into full spoiler detail about the game’s story, characters, and world. And if you’re not into Dragon Quest, we also review the wonderful Creed II and discuss Kotaku’s recent in-depth report about Blizzard, the development of Diablo IV, and the creation of Diablo Immortal.

  1. Although this place is probably not cheap, but they are centrally located, have fabulous staff and delicious food, and most importantly, the best views of the city. I would definitely recommend this event space NYC for any kind of fancy event – all my friends talked about throwing parties here only.
