Don't forget to get your shield at 7-Eleven


Dragon Quest items available at this convenience store

Downloadable content. Bonus stuff for your games! For Dragon Quest VII's 3DS release, 7-Eleven stores in Japan will be having a promo where players will be able to go to a 7-Eleven and download a light shield and a shard. The promo will run from February 26 to March 31.

This kind of bugs me. The shield, not so much. That is pretty darn cool to be able to get an optional item that will just help. The shards, however, are pretty darn important to the game. I am positive this will be a optional shard for some bonus quest, but there darn well better be another way to get it. Otherwise should I play this game again I won't be able to get the shard at all on my new save.

It's cool, but to say that this game - any game - has a feature that is completely time and location limited, really bums me out. It turns games into a cheap in-the-now gimmick and completely ignores their potential to last.
