Dragon's Dogma

So, I bought Dragon's Dogma after enjoying the demo, and I have to admit: Capcom actually made something good. Even if the graphics are kinda ugly sometimes, the game feels pretty balanced, and it takes some pretty interesting turns on the pseudo-multiplayer aspect. Then again, I played for only a couple hours. Anyone else with the game clocked more? What are your opinions? Is the DLC be on-disc again? Does Capcom's execs need to be shot in the eyes with a dart gun? Share your thoughts my friends.

I agree. Enjoying Dragon's Dogma. However, Capcom screwed me over recently so I won't be buying anymore of their games. However, Dogma is very enjoyable.

 

I share your opinion on Capcom, but I'm a bit more pragmatic. I buy the games that are well-made, if only to support the stuff I want to see perpetuated in gaming. If Capcom pulls a MvC3 again, I won't be touching anything from them ever again.

I pre-ordered the SF 25th anniversary collection thing from their online store. Total came to $177.67. It clearly states on their site that I won't be billed UNTIL the item ships. Now keep in mind the thing is due out 9/18. I pre-ordered assuming I wouldn't be billed til 9/16 or 9/17.....well they billed me about a day later. :\ then claimed it wasn't 'charged' but 'put on hold' and it was just an authorization thingy.....complete BS. I cancelled my order and they refunded my money. Still, the aggravation and unethical practices they have....I won't be buying any capcom games anymore unless I get them used or off a friend, etc.

Seriously. Capcom is appearing to be more and more morally bankrupt. I only got Dragon's Dogma because I got info the AI in the game is absolutely amazing (and it's true), something that really interests me as a game design student. They're becoming as bad as EA or Bioware.

 

But I'm not planning to get anything else Capcom releases, especially because of the "10 DLC missions, 1 per week" and "NEW HAIRSTYLES" both paid DLC for Dragon's Dogma, and due to how quickly they were released, I suspect they're both on-disc.

They are both on disc. I hate that about them as well. Then they'll turn around and release a "gold" version where all the "dlc" will already be unlocked for you. I'm not gonna bother with their stuff anymore.

And here I am, back with a more informed opinion on DD.

 

So, the Pawn system is good, as in AMAZINGLY HELPFUL good. Which quite frankly, is a must at some times, since the lighting can be quite terrible at some times, and it's pretty hard to spot an enemy as their life bars only appears while you're hitting them. Combine that with some really dark shadows and you have people going "WHERE THE HELL IS THAT COMING FROM?" all the time. As for the combat itself, it is pretty solid, despite a lack of a defense option for the non-shield wearing classes. If you could at least roll out of danger's way, it wouldn't be so annoying.

 

The game has a lot of subquests, but sometimes you'll be completely lost simply because you have no freaking clue where you're supposed to go. Witchwood? Where in the living hell is that? While most quests and subquests have a marker showing where you have to go to proceed, if you haven't reached an area yet, the game won't give you any clue how to get there. This kinda seems like doubt between going oldschool and leaving the players to their destiny and investigative skills and going modern and holding the player's hand through the entire ordeal. But generally, you can manage.

 

The costs for EVERYTHING is pretty high. As in, second city in game, you need either 80k or 30k gold to finish a sidequest (HERO OF THE PEOPLE way and BUSINESSMAN way respectively), and cash is HARD to come by. Even selling your unused equipment will net you very little cash. Doesn't help that you need to equip yourself and your main Pawn.

 

Overall, I'm finding it a bit rough around the edges, but it's been a pretty enjoyable experience.

The THigns IGN Said about it.. I Think Ill pas :P

But it seems to be a really nice gamne

 

I wouldn't go with IGN's review alone. Check Metacritic, as they have a normalized score between reviewers and users. Overall, it's a better choice for checking how a game is doing.

I usually check metacritic aswell, but if i remember, last time I checked.. It was around 75-80

 

And that means it's pretty much above average for its genre. I'd advise you to download the demo and take your own conclusions. Better than relying on other people's opinions right?

I'll be grabbing this game once it hits the bargin level prices.

 

The game may be good, but I'm personally fed up of being used like cattle by Capcom. Their games are usually quality, but the milking with the dlc for example is a bit much.

 

And while I do enjoy their games, I don't enjoy them enough that I'd allow them to abuse me in that way.

I do understand your feelings. Personally, I only got the game for the AI. As a student, it's very helpful to have some good examples of AI to analyze. If not for that, I wouldn't even pay attention to it due to crapcom bullshit.
