So what do you guys think?
Excuse me while I purchase 28 copies.
I have, in reality, already bought myself and a friend of mine copies to play. He said he was "completely uninterested" with the "generic fantasy" setting, so I showed him a single gameplay video and his opinion changed to "well, I guess I would play it if it just fell into my hands, but I wouldn't buy it." You know what that's a code for.
Capcom you jew fucks
port to ps4/xbone
I will buy this fucker a fifth time if it means a hope for DD2
He's fed up with generic Tolkienesque fantasy setting and wants something based on cyberpunk, his favorite genre, which I can understand because I also don't like Tolkienesque fantasy and would rather indulge in a sci-fi game instead. His most-looked-forward-to game is Cyberpunk 2077.
Yeah, he's a cunt, but he's my friend. He's the only reason I continue to play the grindfest shitshow that is Warframe, even though I hate the design philosophy behind most of it. Playing a shitty game with friends is as good as playing a good game by yourself.
>buying a game for your friend that isn't even multiplayer
Capcom fucked up not making this co-op. If there's a sequel it should be top priority. What is the point of companions without co-op?
well, you can hire the pawns of other people.
I just wanted an excuse to give something nice to a friend and additionally give DD another PC sale, because I really do like this attitude of more PC porting (of which there has definitely been a lot of lately)
>I just wanted an excuse to give something nice to a friend and additionally give DD another PC sale, because I really do like this attitude of more PC porting (of which there has definitely been a lot of lately)
You're a good friend, anon.
unless 5 million people buy the game at full price, there wont be any sequel
i'm guessing 100k at release and maybe 1 million after a couple years when it has been at $5 for a while
Well, I can imagine getting fed up with the Tolkienesque stuff, they do rehash that kind of stuff out the ass but it's all about the gameplay, mang.
I'm not saying that setting, music and story are lesser, but I really do believe that if people don't think gameplay is the most important aspect, they're shitters.
Stop pulling numbers out of your ass. Considering DD to be a niche game, which is a good thing, means the sequel will probably be bought by most people that played the original game. This means the sales of the original will be mirrored by sales of the sequel so following the exact same recipe and then budgeting for some percentage less than the projected sales is pretty much guaranteed money.
Lets say the first one pulled in a profit of 50 million dollars. They can then set a budget of 40 for a sequel, or even 20, and expect a good margin of returns. This is how companies work, some guys look at numbers and make decisions, nobody in the top office cares about the game. The hard profit doesn't matter either, its all in percentage returns, whether the original investment was 1 dollar or 1 million
>buy this if you want a sequel
YOU ALREADY SOLD THIS GAME 3 TIMES
You're trying to make sense. Capcom is trying to make 6 million + sellers. These two philosophies have no overlap. Just be glad DDOnline exists and hope DD on PC is easily moddable.
they were expecting 10 million sales with the console release and it only sold 2 million
PC release is already half price so it has to sell shitloads for them to consider a sequel
What, no. It wasn't only one of them either, yesterday night threads were deleted too. Yesterday's night thread had some WebMs of the game and some pretty cool character designs, and others were talking about combat.
This morning was the same thing. I don't get it.
Capcom literally ALWAYS say this when they release a port of an old game and the only time it's worked was with Resident Evil 2 getting a remake due to REmake's port's positive reaction. They said this with DMC4 Special edition and now DMC5 might be getting made too since the voice actors accidentally leaked that they were working on something DMC related. So who knows? DD definitely isn't as popular as DMC or RE but it might lead to something.
He said that his disdain for generic fantasy is the exact reason why he could never really get into and properly enjoy the Witcher series, so no.
His GOTY 2015 is probably TPP, which also is my GOTY by default because I didn't find anything I liked better. I was the one that convinced him to become a fan of Metal Gear, which definitely took some resistance to wear down. He's a mustard fuck-cunt, so he doesn't play consoles on principle and only watched MGS 1-PW, but I'm going to make him play them, emulated or not, and he's expressed interest in emulating everything except 4.
HIs favorite RPG is probably New Vegas, which I never liked at all.
I dont know what to make out of this all
but yes, he is mostly right, dd is very bland and generic you shouldve told him that combat and pawns are the only thing ceeping it alive or and maybe fashion
tpp is acceptable, wasnt that much for me but is still and acceptable choice
not to hate on witcher 3 but fuck this game, because of it we will get more and more bamham styled combat systems which are clearly dull and archaic and should suffer a painfull death. furthermore gameplay will be on 2 to 3 place after muh story and muh characters so fuck that and fuck this. just needed to say that as you probably guessed already
>They said this with DMC4 Special edition and now DMC5 might be getting made too since the voice actors accidentally leaked that they were working on something DMC related.
It's a pachinko machine! :^) Same way Gurren Lagann got cucked.
There's no blog here, I'm just answering the questions, but I disagree with DD being "generic." The tone is different than TES or DA or anything else generic fantasy, and you can definitely tell it's a Capcom game; it just feels different
And I did tell him that the combat was the main point of the game, since that was what I showed him that convinced him to play it..
Blog=long answer which could have been shortened.
generic= Nothing new, things that are expected. DD is full of it while making some things quite differently.
If he was sold on the combat, why not playing a fighter or the superior game series dark souls? Quite some fun is to be had if you are into multiple playthroughs and a perfect small party coop game.
Actually I feel that DD is extremely generic, and that's why it's a good game. It's a regular fantasy medieval world with regular fantasy creatures that look like what they're meant to look like. It's not too whimsical but not overly dark. The world isnt huge but it isnt too tiny or gated.
I just want a generic fantasy game that reigns in everything to something manageable and DD provides that without overwhelming stat sheets or dialogue choices, but you're still got dudes in armor hitting things with swords and when they cast magic it's all fire and lightning and not THE BLOOD ARTS OF YATHURGUL or whatever
It's got a ton of concepts that are neither shallow or are they particularly deep. It's just a regular and unglitsy mash up of tons of games in a (finally) polished package now that it loses the letterboxes and .ppt extension name.
It's just got everything and in the right amounts. Nothing wrong with being generic, that stuff is overused because it works.
Sounds like a load of bullshit marketing scheme to make people buy more. I'm still buying a copy though because DD:DA at 1080p 60+ fps sounds fucking awesome
I didn't even use up the character limit. Blogs are signified with having too much not-video-games shit in them.
>superior game series dark souls
Now I know we are clearly not destined to agree. Dark Souls was just kinda meh. I didn't like it, and the setting just wasn't for me. From was at its best when it was still doing Armored Core. Anyway, I think your definition of generic needs work. Generic stuff is common, cheap, builder-grade kinda shit, like those houses you see in new land development areas. DD isn't cookie-cutter like that, as a whole. In terms of pure setting, it's in the same ballpark, but I'd only call it generic if you don't care about any of the story/setting/races/etc. in the game and it's just there to establish A setting for the game to exist in.
I think we're thinking about two different kinds of "generic," and semantics aren't fun. I think that Capcom uses the fantasy setting very effectively and the setting isn't just a throwaway set of tropes in DD, personally.
Even if it did become a Steam best seller, they are too stupid to to profit off a sequel.
your current answer is a blog as an freeminded individual i am allowed to say this is a blog at any time of day as it is my subjective opinion even tho there are objective criteria i already stated. so nice blog faggot
my definition of generic is the proper difinition see wikipedia or the definition of generic in a glossar.
dark souls is nearly the same minus open world and the climbing mechanics but better combat what is your point. how can anybody like something but dislike the same thing at the same time?
When is Capcom going to stop with this dumb sequel hostage shit?
Their expectations are always extremely retarded as well, they always want 3 million copies or something absurd.
tfw gonna downscale 4K on this motherfucker
From Capcom Blog
>Speaking of which, here are the Minimum and Recommended specs, as well as an all-out Performance spec list, if you wanna get fancy and run the game at 4K
I wonder if min are for 4K as well. My reading comprehension kinda is off lately.
Also usually CPU specs on paper are way too high, MGR being an example. Minimal i5, recommended i7, game works just fine on C2D.
Capcom reports Intel HD3000 graphics is enough for low settings 720p 30 fps.
Best bet would be to wait for release.
whatever, faggot. You're a blog, I'm a blog. Fuck.
>using wikipedia as a source
Google's giving me "generic" as: "characteristic of or relating to a class or group of things; not specific."
That's too broad of a definition, and we're working off of the connotation anyway, not just the strict denotation.
Anyway, I don't like Dark Souls because of the grim-dark story that it tells. The gameplay is fine, but it's basically a solved game' from how it looks, Bloodborne looks like a better game, personally, though I have no drive to play that either because the setting and tone look completely uninteresting for me. DD gameplay looks more fun, because it is both stylish and substantative. People like to pretend that style means nothing and that substance is the meat of the game, and the second part of that is true, but if you only have substance and no style, you don't have a game, only a mechanically sound and somewhat-rewarding tedium. That's why spellcasting in DaS was better than going pure melee, because you had style and substance and everything felt *good* to wield, although not particularly outstanding compared to other games in its class, which is why I still prefer Armored Core as From's flagship franchise.
I think that this shit needs to stop being talked about multiple times a day. I've seen 4 threads a day about this shitty game that's been out since 2010 or something stupid and just now is going to pc. A sequel won't be any better. Game is garbage
>videogames shouldn't have threads on /v/ if I personally believe the game is bad, even though I'm perfectly capable of looking up the other 60+ threads there are going on right now
I love posts like these
Im opperating in german and generic is defined as typical, usual, estabileshed etc so everything that fits dragons dogmas bill. Dont get offended on "nice blog", im still answering to it arent I, therfore it cant be a bad blog.
I cant quite relate, I mean a huge ass dragon who steals your heart is the only difference story wise. In DD you are still the "awaken" in DS you are "chosen undead". DD is multiverse or Cycle, DS is multiverse or cycle. DD endsequence is beeing practicly the god ind DS you are practicly a god. There are so many parallel lines storywise I dont understand what you found to be especially grim dark in ds but not in dd.
Setting, medevil, poison lake, big ass city 1 and 2, hellish underworld, woods, archives, crystal caves etc etc (ds)
Setting: Caves, open space, Bigger ass castle, big ass city, woods etc etc nearly the same shit with ds hving more varied but smaller places to be.
Gamestyle is preference but i found the more vibrant colors of dd to be more pleasureable to look at compared to dark souls too so theres that.
Having goot combat mechanics that are methodical is somewhat a worse combat system? you need to explain furthermore is spellcasting by no means the way to go in dark souls universe if you dont know what you are doing, for all i know you could fail to find the hat guy and that would limit you to lvl bum spells.
Not trying to convice you but dark souls really is far superior in everything it does except for graphics and partially the world. so if you are interested in gamepay mechanics it usually is ds which comes first than dd but still im going to buy dd, its a very good but bland and generic game
I'm really curious what goes through someones head before they make a post like this. You're adding literally nothing to the discussion, it's a blatant shitpost. Are you doing it just to bait a reply or is it genuine misplaced anger? It's like you deliberately engineered the stupidest shitpost possible and hit enter without even thinking
I'm not buying the same game twice. Maybe if they actually added some content to give me at least some reason to consider it, but a simple port won't do. They can fuck off right away.
Capcom didn't expect 10 million sales, Itsuno said he HOPED it would sell that many so he could keep working on the IP for many years to come. That comment was not indicative of the Capcom's actual expectations. They literally came out and said they were satisfied with sales considering it was a new IP.
Dod DD come out before or after Skyrim? on what fucking planet is it reasonable to accept 10 million sales from a new IP?
The fact that it got 2.3 million would be considered a massive success by literally any other publisher except for maybe Squeenix
This is typical PR talk. Even if you don't have any plans and otherwise consider a series dead, you still say that your company's property is still being considered for further commercialization.
There's nothing to really read into here.
This it was about a half million between DD and DDDA across all platorms and territories.
What has me skeptical of the series staying power is DDDA sold significantly less per platform. I'm hoping PC release ends up more comparable to the original release in terms of per platform numbers or else we're in a situation where the series is only relevant to a fairly small diehard community.
I actually think I'm on my literal 4th Dragon's Dogma purchase.
>trade in DD, buy DA
>buy DD again on sale for lending and sweet imported save data
>buy DA again on PC
No one actually believes this right?
Dragons dogma was under funded, half of its planned content wasn't finished, didn't sell well and they turned it into a shitty free to play mmo with its sequel which is entirely made out of re-used assets.
Capcom makes awful PC ports. Don't get me wrong, I love the game and I'll buy it for pc and play through it all over again maybe multiple times if the port is good but thinking even for a second that there will be a proper sequel is insane.
>Capcom makes awful PC ports
This really isn't true. They're not the greatest, but Cpacom PC games are usually handled pretty well.
For a second there I thought dogma had sold 23 million units and Capcom's retard meter went through the fucking roof.
Neat. If that doesn't cover some strange definition of "sale", like each Download of DDO constituting a "sale", then that's not too bad. It's not good, since maybe half of those would have been discounted digital sales on PSN or XBL, but promising for the series in the long run.
You're not suckering me a 3rd time
>Buy IP from someone else
>Make shitty HD version that runs worse
>No one buys it
>Don't make any more games for IP
Truly the masters of business.
>Strategy Informer: The game features trading of your party members – pawns – between players online but doesn’t feature any sort of ‘active’ online multiplayer. What was the reasoning behind only having pawn trading as a multiplayer feature?
>Hiroyuki Kobayashi: From the beginning we decided we were going to make this a single player experience. I think one of the main reasons behind that discussion or what led to that discussion is because we wanted to focus on the action elements of this game. In that respect it's a traditional action game, and if you've played action games you know that it's all about response and timing. So in this game if you block with your shield and you go on with your sword... with the different types of combos that you use with your attack there's a very time contingent element.
>So when you go online other people would interfere with that; there might be lag or things like that, so we wouldn't be able to do the proper action elements that we'd wanted with the game if we took it online. I think also when you go online and you talk about multiplayer or co-op mode you always have to set time aside with your friends to make sure everyone's together and you can keep going, and because we want to focus on the story and all the different elements of this game, we didn't want people to feel constrained by the fact that they had to play with other people, so we created this pawn system that allows them to interact with their friends and other players, but their experience with the game isn't necessarily tied to those people.
tldr the devs never wanted multiplayer action in the game. I'm sick of people acting like everything they don't like about DD has some basis in "cut content" just because there's a picture of a big map of stuff that isn't in the game. Fuck you
I wonder how they would try to fit these details into a sequel without feeling like complete retcons
Itsuno wasn't involved with Dark Arisen, he directed the original because nobody else would. Now that the series is estabilished Kento Kinoshita can take the helm and let Itsuno focus on anything else, like DMC or another franchise.
I would cum buckets.
Not sure about DD2 but DMC5 is pretty much confirmed at this point, the series was listed as "important franchises" alongside Resident Evil and Street Fighter in Capcom's latest financial report.
Even if the picture above and below your post aren't indicative of cut content, the second half of the game, post-dragon is a big map with 0 quests, the love system is poorly implemented or rather a completely void feature, a lot of harder enemies are simply reskins and it was a brand new IP from Capcom who are notorious for canning things that won't or may not sell well.
Why even ask what it is if you think it's ugly?
But yeah, I'm probably switching to another one after the download is done. Just now tried this out after seeing it in another thread.
>This is pretty much extortion.
If this is extortion then what does that make the rest of the industry?
Reality-check: Games that sell like shit, generally don't get sequels. That's just how it works. Maybe it's a little on the nose to say that this won't get a sequel unless people buy it, but that's business for ya.
We're all going to make it, bro's. Eventually.
>fight zombies with no pawns
>realize they say all kinds of spooky shit, you just couldn't hear it over the pawn chatter
Welcome to Capcom. You should have seen the bullshit they were spouting when it came to Wii games.
>wow RE4 Wii Edition sure sold a lot
>hey if you want more true RE buy this mediocre rail shooter
>wow REUC really sold well
>I bet you'd like even more mediocre rail shooters
>REDC bombed? RE just doesn't work on the Wii
or how about
>We promise to release more fighting games for Wii users so they have more than just TvC to use our fightstick with
>Finishes in 2 hours
I'm ready for next week
>pre-loading with the speed of light
>won't be able to play it anyway yet
Why this teasing ;_;
I'm you from the future. Stop being a fag.
So I heard they are tweaking the rift store stuff. Have they said if stuff will be cheaper? I'd hate to have to grind again just for fucking cosmetic stuff like unique hair and skin colors.
Jesus, those downloads look painful.
20 minutes until I get to wait a week. But at least I'll get the extras soon, r-right?
>>pre-loading with the speed of light
>>won't be able to play it anyway yet
Yeah, I don't know what anyone is complaining about. I can sympathize with bad internet. I used to be on a 1.5kpbs line, but downloading any faster won't make a difference. I even throttled mine to 512kbps because it literally doesn't matter if it takes a day or two to download.
It will likely be cheaper since they are removing the microtransaction part that
hopefullyno one used. I feel bad for pawns that never get rents but scraping up enough for a Secret of Metamorphosis or some anime hairs shouldn't be too hard.
If you're OK with games that will grow on you, rather than immediately blow your dick off, 30$ is absolutely a fair price. Paid that much for it initially, and bought a friend a copy as well.
When in doubt
Here's a source btw
>And the framerate? Well, you won’t be disappointed. Playing this on a relatively modest PC rig, running a 750ti and i5-4670k, I’ve had virtually no issues with most settings on high while running in 1080p, maintaining 60 frames per second throughout. Even in some of the dense, forested sections, encountering larger enemies like the Chimera, Dark Arisen on PC doesn’t seem to hitch up at all.
Preordered a boxed version of that game for PC, I never played it on ps3 but I've seen a few webms already and it looked like fun.
Was I right ? Technically it's not a preorder and it was only 21 eurobucks.
Just reached Gran Soren, been playing for about 100 min. Any questions regarding PC version?
Press copy. No, I'm not a fucking let's player.
The game already looked great back when it came out. All it was needing was just a stabler framerate that doesn't shit itself when more than two characters are casting magic or smacking a dragon in the gob
unfortunately all the previews have beast CPUs so no one can really tell anything.
The fact that Capcom says that you can run it on an intel hd2000 only further supports the fact that it's extremly cpu-heavy, which hints that no PC-specific optimization was done.
Is it at least running smoothly, as expected?
Which runs contrary to everything we have seen from MT Framework games.
There is no reason to draw the conclusion you have come to. Assuming the worst is OK. Conclude the worst despite the evidence is not.
It's your spending power, anon. If dogma isn't the game for you, then no worries. Find something that you enjoy and play that.
I hope you find a very enjoyable game with which to spend many hours with.
They're good. A bit confusing, as you have to switch with CTRL and ALT and it's not as initiative as the controller. But it works.
The only thong that really pisses me off is the console menus, they didn't bother to change them one bit.
You're still extrapolating more than what is being demonstrated. IF there were performance drops on that 4670k, a 3 and a half year old CPU, you would have a point. That was not demonstrated. You can only conclude that the game will not require the latest and greatest CPU to run 60fps @1080.
Whether or not anything lower would be insufficient, or even sufficient, is still yet to be seen.
Not so far. I think you sprint faster, or maybe it's just because it's 60 frames now. But other than that it's the same. Didn't reach berserk content yet, if there is any. Pretty late here, will play more tomorrow.
Well shit. Did not know that. I'm pretty sure people will start modding the game soon though, one of the benifits of PC. Hopefully they also add co-op, perfect game for it.
>Hopefully they also add co-op
Not saying that would be bad, but everyone thinking that mods are some fuckin' fairy magic that make every PC game as moddable as a Gamebryo game annoys me so much, goddamn.
Bunch of people with youtube channels put in for them, and were granted the press copies. Not really surprising, since this game will probably have sales being pushed out grassroots style by word of mouth on forums and through youtube. Except for the trailers, I wouldn't expect much in the way of advertising, maybe a small splash ad on the steam store page on release day, but that would be it.
You work for a press outlet or run a blog site with more than 10 visitors and then simply ask them for one. I have a friend who has a shitty wordpress blog and gets these things all the fucking time. He says some publishers like Square Enix are generally pretty stingy but most of them give them out like candy.
It means that any game without a significant number of AIs or dynamic interactive objects, should have no reason for requiring more than like a laptop speed quad-core, or maybe a very high speed (4.0ghz) dual-core CPU; barring heavy use of dynamic particle/bones (cloth physics for example).
>tfw you held out and stayed strong, and are now going to experience the game in all its glory and definite edition
>played the game to aboslute death already
>no more fun to be had
then again it's been well over a year since i touched it. if a ps4 remaster comes out in 6 months time it will feel fresh again.
Yeah well. I'm having a severe depression right now and need something to escape life for a couple of days. Why the extra 6 days?
the bantz were the best part of the game
The game does have dismemberment for certain enemies
>Can stab out Cyclops eyes
>Cut off Hydra Heads
>Cut off Chimera Tails
I think there's more but that's all I can think of off the top of my head. Also unlike other games dismembering body parts of your enemies actually has an effect on the fight.
What the fuck? I thought this game was constantly compared with Skyrim and Dark Souls 2. Those games were 4gb unless you heavily modded. How is my toaster supposed to run this game now?
>increase the chances that we can look into the possibility
>"Well it's possible that we'll possibly consider giving the thoughts of a sequel some more thought. Maybe."
Haven't you learned by now.
But anon, there are two sequels! One for your telephony device, and one AVAILABLE ONLY IN GLORIOUS NIPPON FUCK YOU GAIJIN
I really didn't like Dark Arisen much.
Dragons Dogma is criminally overrated. The game is questionably good and in no danger of being great. There are some great ideas lurking behind all the tedium though.
With that being said, a sequel could be the game people think Dragon's Dogma is, given that most sequels improve on the mechanics and engine, and therefore, I welcome the idea of a sequel.
>Dragons Dogma is criminally overrated
It took how long to get more Dragon Quest in the west?
I mean it's possible, but I think Capcom are in the running to be even bigger assholes than SE about these sort of things. But who knows.
>make a pity port to PC of an ancient console game

IT'S VALKYRIA CHRONICLES ALL OVER AGAIN
SONY CAN'T KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH THIS
What is it about dragons dogma threads that attracts so many shitposters
>sold best on PC
>sequel is PS4 exclusive
Goddamn thats some ugly animation. How the fuck are they greenlighting this garbage in Nipland?
if i remember correctly they figured DD would get them 8 million copies sold.
i agree though, im sick of capcom doing this, just make a fucking sequel for this game and make MML3.
I don't play MMO's because they're all carbon copy shit.
That's why I want DDO.
Because you faggots keep making threads constantly, fucking slow down unless you want DD threads to just be shitpost central on release you stupid faggots.
4 years is hardly "ancient"
The original game ran for $60 dollars, dipshit
Still not solidly confirmed
Project harder, I want to watch an old movie on your fat head
They can extort me all they want as long as it means we get a proper sequel.
Well to be fair it's not really a sequel, and the artwork is quite different, even from 3 which is already noticeably changed from 1.
Azure Revolution characters just have this strange ratio of facial feature placement. Even if you compare it to the 2D characters in 2/3, it's out of place by a fair margin.
It's sad that we're as desperate as we are.
It's a game by SEGA. Without a doubt the biggest Sony developer in Japan.
It was still announced AFTER the game sold so well on PC. And this new game is so far lined up to be PS4 exclusive, even if the game sold like shit on the PS3, allegedly. Sega is playing the PKeks for clowns, and will give them old console scraps to sate them while all their worthwhile games remain console exclusive.
You sound bitter. PCfriends bullied you a lot?
nigga im a pkek, I'm sick of being played like a fiddle by Sega. WE made VC relevant, and how does Sega thank us? By making the new game PS4 exclusive.
IT'S NOT FUCKING FAIR.
The point is simply that very few games really need the CPU to be doing a lot of things that game designers are shucking onto them. If a game has a high CPU requirement, chances are there are much better ways for the programmers to handle things where the CPU doesn't need to be doing so many, or such complicated, maths.
What are the alternatives? You don't understand and want me to explain what else could be done? Not to be disrespectful, but acknowledging your own ignorance, do you really believe you would understand what I would have to say?
The simple fact of the matter is that any software made to run on 10 years old budget hardware should have absolutely no reason to not perform better on virtually any hardware released 6 years hence. You can either accept that is a fact of the matter on my word alone, or hit up google for all things computer related and start to learn why that issue is so matter of fact. It isn't practical for anyone here to try and educate you. Again, no offense; merely recognizing your own admission of ignorance.
Oh I'm not denying that, they clearly used the PC port to get some steam going first. I'm just saying that personally I don't see much promise in Azure Revolution.
A good portion of the appeal of VC was the SRPG elements meshing well with the whole WW1 warfare setting, even if not taken very seriously and mixing it up with magic. With AR, I don't think it's the same genre going by the trailers. Isn't it more like a Tales game?
Guess what I mean is, it seems the game was always meant to be aimed at a console. Regardless of whether or not the PC port sold well or not.
Just like Final Fantasy, right? Nintendo MADE Final Fantasy into what it is now, but those pesky Sonybros took it for granted. It has NEVER had a mainline series come back to Nintendo consoles.
WHY DO THEY KEEP DOING THIS? ARE THEY NOT CONTENT WITH WINNING ALL THE GOD DAMNED TIME?
>DD:DA does well on Steam, beats sales goals and projections
>Capcom makes DD2...for PS4/Xbone
>if you buy this game years late with cut content we might bring a sequel to you maybe possibly if you buy lots and lots, maybe
Obvious lies are obvious. Trying to trick people into buying
>do you really believe you would understand what I would have to say?
I thought there was a chance you could dumb it down for me, but point taken. I get the rest of your post just now though, thanks for clearing it up.
That said, I was assuming you were trying to say that the game should be relying on GPU more and not CPU, but that's probably my own misconception about how computers work.
Sony only has like 3 FF games truly exclusive to their systems. All the PS1 games are now on PC, even if the third one took nearly 20 years to come out for PC. And it stopped being a Sony thing after the 12th mainline entry.
I can't say for sure, but most online games I see have way better install base on the ps4 vs other platforms. to the point where ps4 beats pc and xbox combined in some cases. these are big games like battlefield and that too. capcom are if nothing else idiot jews so they will go with the bigger install base.
plus people steal games that aren't fully MP on pc, DD is online, but you don't really need it. the online DD is just waifu sharing really.
Does that kind of thing actually work? I'll be honest now I usually just skip those posts doesn't affect me none no different than strangers talking on the street as I walk by. Does it actually catch people's attention?
It was exclusively English voiced, but then
>No more Kamiya
>Japan in general
You think the Japanese want to listen to an English voiced Japanese developed game? There are no westaboos in Japan, only racist xenophobic old men.
That's the thing. It might as well not even have anything to do with optimization at all. We're talking about a game made to run on 10 year old hardware. Why should anyone even expect a 3 laptop CPU to struggle? The hardware is so generationally removed that the concept of there even being a minimum CPU requirement is absurd.
Since the PS360 release we have seen a doubling of a doubling of a doubling of hardware performance, even if we're being conservative. Optimistically, we could possibly assuming another doubling of a doubling a doubling still.
This is why anything, literally almost anything in the x64 realm of CPU architectures, it should be remotely reasonable for PS360 software to struggle on 'modern' CPUs. That some of these games do somehow struggle is a marvel in its own right.
anon please I don't actually care but people don't pirate on pc because it's a way to stick it to the man, it's because it's free and easy, even easier than buying a DRM free game most of the time.
I love this game, and 7.5 is perfectly fair. I don't even want to hype this thing up, because it's a really slow burn of a game. It's the sort of thing that grows on you, but even if that were all there was to it, there are some very rough edges apart from the pacing.
I like it, faults and all, but it would be silly to say things like the Wyrm Hunt are actually compelling quest lines. It makes sense because the Duke wanted to keep you from facing the Dragon, so I love it, but for a compelling game narrative it is a very rough spot that I certainly didn't appreciate on my first playthrough, and I can't say I would give it any bonuses for a technically thoughtful narrative after digging a little deeper.
Pretty much. Plenty of the quests don't seem to matter in the grand scheme of things. And even the main plot ones are pretty bare when you stand back to look at them all as a whole
is there a way to show recent purchases/gifts in steam? If so, I'll gladly show you that I have indeed pre-ordered the game for myself and gifted another copy to an anon here.
Yeah, that's a actually a fair general assessment of the game. Outside of the combat and monsters, a lot of things tend to feel unrealized or unpolished.
it is under account details.
>Plenty of the quests don't seem to matter in the grand scheme of things. And even the main plot ones are pretty bare when you stand back to look at them all as a whole
This made me think for a bit, and honestly not much of the game really means much storywise. The Wyrm Hunt quests aren't anything special other than allowing you to meet Edmun and the first semi-relevant plot point after getting to Gran Soren is the existence of Salvation.
This is the first game I've preordered in years, and the only game I've ever preordered digitally. I want to play it the day it releases, and even if there were to be a physical release I'd still have to use fucking Steam and download a bunch of shit anyway. The only way I'm gong to actually play this game the day it releases is by preloading.
>Outside of the combat and monsters, a lot of things tend to feel unrealized or unpolished.
I don't play JRPGs much, so are they usually very well polished and realized for their non-combat gameplay? I don't mean waifu/romance dialogue and the like, I figure they at least can do that pretty well, at least better than the west in general.
Not to mention the whole thing with Salvation feels almost inconsequential.
Granted, it was fucking hilarious how Grigs swoops in and crushes the Palpatine wannabe without warning, it still felt like the entire doomsday cult subplot was just a throwaway element that didn't go anywhere.
Really had me feel like I was playing in a totally podunk backwater of a duchy. This halfassed death cult that even Greg makes fun of, nutty Duke that can barely keep things trotting along, nobody bothers fixing fucking anything, the threats to the land are a big Dragon who doesn't give two shits and pettty in-fighting, and the only people with their heads on straight figure it's better to handle their own crap and duck out if things get crazy.
It was like a medieval dystopia, in a way.
Not really an excuse for the story, but it did give things a unique and oddly amusing vibe.
DD is mostly different from the wealth of jRPGs. Even disregarding the moe shit most have become, jRPGs tend to be more like cinematic adventure games, with overly convoluted linear plots, and some sort of number based abstractions/Skinner boxes for gameplay. DD is NOT just a jRPG with action combat.
DD is much closer to western RPGs in regard to plot and NPC interaction, but it just sort of does its own thing, if either by design or just the way it turned out. It isn't really fair to draw many comparisons.
It can just feel dry, especially since there is an affinity system in the game that has some novelty to the plot. When you have a bunch of named NPCs with their own daily routines (not very complex) but no ways of really interacting with them in a meaningful way you have to design elements that seem to conflict.
Eh, they still could have done a lot more if I must say. The Duke's whole spaz out moment is almost played off as some random thing, even more so when you break out of the jail and go right back to the Duchy with nobody reacting to your escape in any way. Hopefully, should they do make a sequel, they'll take more time with the characters and story
Do you guys think Cheat Engine will work with this game?
I wanna mod my level to max because I don't wanna grind my way there again (I already did that on PS3), and play on the highest difficulty.
Look after yourself anon and find something to take up your time in the meantime, even if it's bingeing on some shit tv series or something.
Get a spot of fresh air when you can too. We'll be sharing pawns and being hunted by wolves in packs in no time m8
I don't see any reason to assume otherwise. It might as well fall into the same category as mods. They don't officially support it, and may technically be against EULA, but it isn't a competitive online game, so unless you somehow do something that could crash the rift pawn server, or other client's software through that system, then there isn't any reason for them to give half of a shit.
So without active intervention by Capcom there is no reason cheat engine wouldn't work. I'd just so some of the editing while in offline mode if nothing else. So, avoid things like trying to tell Capcom's servers you did 20 million billion trillion damage to online Ur dragon, but if you're just modding experience values so you level up from 1 to 200 from a single goblin then whatever.
Wouldn't be surprised to have my pawn come back with literally billions of rift crystals after some numbnuts hires my pawn while using some sort of max XP cheat engine script.
That's called bussiness sense. Darkstalkers wouldn't have sold anywhere near SF4.
People talk a lot of crap about Capcom, but they're not dumb when it comes to doomed endeavors.
Like Megaman Legends 3, which would be a sequel to a 15 years old game that was pretty niche to begin with.
And they're actually cool enough to experiment once in a while, leading to shit like Monster Hunter, Lost Planet (2 is awesome) and Dragon's Dogma.
People don't give much of a shit about the RE Revelations games, which goes to show that people won't play either rail shooters or damn good games that merge old-style survival horror RE with quality gameplay, which is what Revelations delivers. People simply don't even talk about those games. We ALREADY GOT the perfect Resident Evil games, it's just that no one noticed.
>they're actually cool enough to experiment once in a while
Anon if Capcom had their way none of those titles you mentioned would have been made.
So is a sorcerer fun? Am I boned if I play Sorc most of the time and then go Magic Archer or Mystic Knight?
I played a strider archer type when I originally played it on ps3 and want to try something new this time around.
>Capcom releases the games
>if Capcom had their way
Do you think terrorists forced them to develop and release the games, then?
Say what you will, Capcom is one of the remaining god-tier triple A devs. Bamco and Sega are still up there with them, too.
>Do you think terrorists forced them to develop and release the games, then?
No jesus dude have you never heard anything about Keiji's time as a leader at Capcom?
I know he had a hard time pushing his projects forward, but that's completely reasonable when you can lose millions of dollars by going with some idea that ends up having no appeal to most gamers. Executives are not the villains they're made up to be.
It's clearly by design. Character interaction was almost entirely limited to pawns and there's literally nothing wrong with that. The game has a fuck ton of little interactions and consequences that are much more important than that.
Yet Lost Planet, Dead Rising, and Dragon's Dogma all turned out to be Gold
There are probably some failures as well, but I'm too much of a lazy fuck to look that up.
I think a good example of this kinda shit is pic related. Kotick was onto Schaffer's bullshit before any of us got to know what a massive hack he was after the Broken Age debacle and his failure on delivering promised features on early access games.
I'm starting my classes up next week and I just want to play now so I can get my mind off of it and stop stressing out. I bought mass effect 1 and 2 to hold me over because they're long games and I thought since I like space travel I might enjoy them but the more I play it the less I like it. They're just not for me.
I think DD's strength is that it provides good gameplay with a setting that's inspired by D&D, which is an exceedingly rare thing if you don't like CRPGs (which, honestly, is kind of surprising).
I personally enjoyed it because it's a game I've been searching for ages - a dungeon crawler with giant monsters that you can climb on, with a decent combat system and music. Shit, the main quests (or, anything that wasn't grabbed off of the quest board) were some of the best I've played in vidya, although I haven't played many CRPGs.
It's just an overall nice, if slightly generic in terms of setting, experience that got ignored because it had the problem of being in the same genre as Skyrim, and being released after Skyrim, simply because people considered that as the defining point of WRPGs (even though anyone who wasn't a newcomer to the genre knew that wasn't the case), and anything that wasn't like it was considered to be shittier. And DD, in all honestly, was quite different from Skyrim in that it had an incredibly polished combat system, a climbing mechanic that wasn't used much, a single city and town (which, granted, are bigger than anything Skyrim has), and generally not much in terms of actual "role-playing". You couldn't craft weapons, you couldn't swim, you couldn't do a lot of things, and it was viewed as shittier because it didn't have a wealth of half-assed features, and instead focused on a small amount of features that it excelled at.
I don't know if you can call Valkyria Hunter a VC game. Different characters in a different world with completely different gameplay, given the VC name because naming it Shining Whatever# would kill whatever hype the game had.
I've bought this 4 times.
>Initial release on xbox 360
>Get a ps3 later and get it for that
>Couple months later, DA comes out
>Couple years later, PC release
>Buy that too
Please, Capcom, I need a DD2.
>"The Dragon's Dogma franchise has become one of Capcom's successful series," the publisher said in a statement. "Cumulative sales were more than 2.3 million units at the end of June 2015."
They didn't say "Dragon's Dogma". They said "Dragon's Dogma franchise".
Consider it pedantic, but you gotta read between the lines to understand why PR never says anything meaningful.
Shit, I didn't notice that.
They also say sales, so I'm assuming that they're talking about the console mainline, rather than the F2P MMO. Although, as you said, they could consider a download a sale for some reason.
Honestly, I'm curious to see how the PC release has affected unit numbers.
Yeah, that would lead me to believe they're talking about copies of DD/DA, but who knows. For that press release to be in the least bit meaningful we would need to know what Capcom counts as a sale? I mentioned DDO downloads as a 'worst' case example, but the situation wouldn't be much improved if they're talking about every individual transaction through DDO. Monthly subscription of premium? That's another 7 sales per subscriber.
How about PSN/XBLive dlc? They're sales too?
It's good Capcom seems to have confidence in the series, but that press release comes alongside DDO and DDDA PC, so the optimism could just be a matter of inspiring confidence in investors.
PR talk is basically just complete bullshit.
Fortunately, the original point was that Capcom was relatively pleased with the performance of DD, given it is a new IP, and that was like a year and a half ago. Hence DDO (probably too safe, but they kept it alive), and hence DDDA PC (more reassuring from my perspective). So if nothing else, it just shows they think the property is worthwhile.
I gotchu senpai.
>mfw first time buying
I played the demo a long while back on 360, it seemed neat enough but never picked it up, saw it was coming to PC and thought, why not?
it will sell 500-700k, game has good rep. Most people on the fence to see how is the port, apparently it's okay.
Open world rpg with reputation like DS which sold like 1m with bad port.
Also potentially filling in while people are waiting/itching for DS3. Might be too close, but probably just far enough away to get some people who are getting hyped and looking for a way to fill in the weeks while they wait.
>Fallout 4 in the top sellers
>that fucking awful Tomb Raider reboot's sequel in the top sellers
>Ubisoft game in the top sellers
>Early Access indie shit in the top sellers
>a fucking phone game port in the top sellers
>Dragon's Dogma isn't
>Trusting anons to provide sources for leaked games or cropped porn
After years of waiting I can't believe it's actually happening
You don't know the truth, that any steam crack works. Game has no protection on its own. You can even use steam emulator if you want. Or download similar crack that has steam_api.dll.
Firstly, DD was on the top seller list when it first went up
Second, top sellers is relative, and a really shit indicator of sales. Once the game releases we can look at the steam stats and see how many people actually own it
You can buy it online from g2a or here http://plati.ru/itm/Dragon's+Dogma%3A+Dark+Arisen+Steam+Gift+Ru%2BCIS/2035170?lang=en-US then ask your russian friend to activate it or use VPN.
>while playing Dragon Dogma
Considering most other Capcom games don't have official mod support, it's hard to say. Some are hoping the coding for the Berserk armor and maybe even the original intro theme are still around so we can have them restored.
Though if I'm not mistaken, Into Free is part of the soundtrack coming with the preorders, so hopefully someone could just use that to dub over the replacement theme Dark Arisen used.
Guts and Griffith armor never were dlc. They were there from the start up and they were shit armor for their cost. By the time you had the gold to buy them you already had better gear.
