Tammy’s been out of town on business this whole week, so I’ve been spending my evenings glued to the TV playing Dragon Quest VIII. It’s not a stellar game or anything, but it is pretty fun and horribly addictive to boot.
Apparently this series is huge in Japan. You may remember it from its beginnings in the US as “Dragon Warrior” on the NES. According to 1up.com’s feature, one in every twelve households in Japan owns a copy of DQ8. One in twelve! That’s big!
