Witty joke containing the word "aught" goes here
Alright I've played this shit like 12 times.
I can't wait for awesome graphics and a non-vomit inducing fps, but I need some music to blare while I play.
Recommend me some electronica or metal to blast while playing this, /v/
The more threads are made in a row, the more we approach /vg/ levels of autism.
>tfw been playing terrible (but still cute) shit like two worlds I and II to pass the time until the pc release
I won't be disappointed in DD if I can endure shit like TW, right?
Yeah it was, but I've some sort of a soft spot for shitty broken RPGs
It was actually much more interesting than TWII in many ways. Too bad they didn't learn on their mistakes.
Pre-ordered and everything. But no reason to wait if I don't have to, plan to download the pirated copy to get my game file started, do the initial leveling and BBI suicide runs and crap, then transfer the file over to Steam on release.
Probably wasn't gonna be online 'till I hit about level 30 and got my pawn trained anyhow.
The fuck is this
Is this legit?
Does the rift system work on the pirated copy? How bad would it be to transfer the save? Already pre-loaded and beaten it multiple times on 360, just don't want to wait anymore than I have to.
Would you hire a sassy Sorcerer with his face?
Evidently some anon got their copy working due to a Steam goof, zipped up the files for d/l and there's a separate crack to get it working.
People say it's legit, or that it's 16 gigs of dolphin porn. Gonna find out for myself later.
TWII felt really rushed in many aspects. You could find empty enemy camps all around the chinese city (New Ashos?), then there are two ruins in the world that look like portals but do nothing and best of all, once
You finished the main story, you could go back to the mines and take on a quest to kill all these golems you summoned earlier. They would drop their weapons but with the way the game handled leveling you probably would never be able to equip those. The swamp area was really nice but like everything else in TWII it was too little and too short. The magic system was pretty great tho.
There is an official map of the whole world the games take place in and there is one huge landmass left. So here is hoping that, if a third game comes, they take the exploration and freedom from the first and combine it with improvements from the second game.
The only thing that a ranger can't natively do, is deal with monsters that are immune to physical attacks. Even then, you can grab a pair of elemental daggers or a longbow to offset this.
Also, by the time you hit endgame, you'll be violating with any class you choose.
Alright whatever here you guys go. Youtube is just impossible to upload the real version to, not even in a private video.
Thank you, based anon. Been looking for this for quite some time.
If there is any amount of modding spirit that can pierce the barrier of MT Framework, it'll be to put this song right back where it belongs.
LMFAO holy fuck this is terrible
in a good way
Is this really an official soundtrack?
Not like it's blocked in my country.
Most fun? Depends on what you like to do. Some people love the big hits of Warrior, some like the solo play and counters of Assassin. Others like the crazy spells and utility of the Sorcerer. And then some just like the outright tankiness of the Magick Knight.
They all do their own thing. So whatever you find the most fun, run with that. Just don't play Mage.
Thanks a ton, anon. It's impossible to track it down. I prefer the new theme, but I can't not love the wind pushing me.
For someone who knows almost nothing about this game, what're some things a brand new player should know going in?
No, in fact Assassin works better with some back up since it's somewhat specialized.
Assassins just get associated with solo because they have the solo aughtment, which can be used with any vocation once you unlock it.
You're asking for it.
There's a few things you should know about wolves.
What the duke could stand to commission.
What enemies are weak to.
What sits upon a hill and is larger up close.
There are many facts.
THE WIND IS PUSHING MEEEE. INTO THE CURRENT AGAIN. I FEEL MY BODY MOVING. DIVING INTO FREE. CAN FEEL IT LETTING GO. GONNA HIT THE GROUND. SKY IS PRETTY FREEEE. WHY CAN'T WE UNDERSTAND,
WE KILL OURSELVES IN THE END.FLYING. FLYING. FLYYYYIIIING INTO FREEEEEEEEE.
>It looks interesting
It does. Not too much beyond looking interesting though. All quests are fetch shit, combat is disgustingly terrible which is why I was rolling a mage and the game world feels absolutely dead, even more dead than in was in TW1, not even lying.
Magic is pretty cool but once you realize that all you're doing is mixing and matching differently coloured fireballs and realize how broken some of the effects are (blind, invis) even this part of the game dies down
>leak is nearly a day old without anybody posting outside 8ch
>amerifats wake up

If videos/screenshots aren't enough to convince you, how is a paragraph from a bunch of NEETs going to accomplish that?

I'LL IMBUE YOUR WEAPONS WITH HOLY LIGHT
help me, i've played DD to level my ps3 and 360 characters to level 200 already in preparation for doing it all again in glorious PC style. the lines, they're taking over my mind.
Ranger is quite good. It can really fuck up low defense enemies with ten-fold arrows, and has a couple hard hitting skills for high defense foes, all at great attack range.
You'll be pure physical damage though, so you'll need some form of magic to deal with ghosts and shit. But you want to balance your party at least a little bit in that regard anyway.
Why is it called this? Can someone tell me seriously if this is legit or not with some pics or something? I don't know what to believe with that kind of filename
Not him, but how does it compare to TW1?
I played a few hours of that and found it to be surprisingly enjoyable. Shit, but still some fun to be had there.
I should get back to it while I wait for DD.
No I understand anon, I've leveled 3 arisens to level 200 so I could have my perfect fat bearded sorcerer arisen, orc warrior main pawn, and my other slutty elven archer and sideburned hobbit strider
Here's some real things
>Always str on hard mode since you'll have an arguably easier time than normal in the long run
>Try any class you want on your first play through save min-maxing for your 2nd or 3rd one
>Don't set your pawn to guardian or the other bad one
>If your not doing any damage to an enemy just run away, there's never any shame in running from a strong enemy
>Almost every monster has a weak point
It looks a bit generic, but it grows on you after some time. It's hard to describe, but there's just lots and lots of great little things you keep discovering which keeps you excited and make it all memorable.
How do I into qts? I keep ending up with Pawns looking something like this.
Honestly the best thing to know, is to always ALWAYS upgrade your equipment, and hold onto at least one of everything. There's an NPC that can forge copies of crafting materials for you, and they work fine for upgrading your gear so always keep at least one extra of everything on hand.
Defense is just a straight damage reduction, so if you don't have enough attack power you wont be doing fuck all for damage. Keep your gear top notch and you'll be fine.
Status effects are fucking amazing in this game, so use them.
Few people would agree with me on that, but i liked the first one more. It felt like an open world game. With a shitty, bland world, but still a world nonetheless. TW2 on the other hand just feels like a series of spawn boxes for ostriches (yeah, one of the first enemies you encounter are damn ostriches), baboons, rhinos etc.
The guilds and the magic system were improved in some ways, but they're still pretty shit so who cares.
Not at all. Gearing for top stats is total overkill, though you may not have as much leeway with weapons as you do with armor. Armors with poor defense still offer great resistances, especially when upgraded. A simple shitty leather headband can still make you immune to like 3 or more status ailments.
Take a picture of you standing on some big rock then I'll believe you
Mage as in Support Mage or as in going to be a Sorc?
Wouldn't suggest a Support Mage simply because it's the hardest one to fuck up and there will be several. Just find one with support spells and the right staff, bonus points for Medicant as secondary inclination.
Fighter is iffy, most of the people who would want a Fighter pawn probably made their pawn a Fighter. But if they're Sorcs then chances are your Fighter will be loads better than theirs.
My pawns going to look like this.
We're going to go around killing all darkies and brown skins.
>Hurdur wasn't gonna be online 'till i hit level 30 anyhow
Well looks like that's about enough of DD threads for me now. Fuck you guys, and see you again on actual launch day.
forehead is my fucking doom in this game, no matter what type of head I try, it always looks like shit.
that being said, try to aim for the smallest forehead you can get, 41 is a good one. throw a circlet, and don't go for the full ponytail, it will look like shit times 10.
oh no theyre playing a rerelease of a 2012 game early
Okay I believe you
Time to download schoolproject
now stand nude on a rock
>mfw I get pissy about the 3DS/WiiU homebrew threads
Wow, so this is how I sound.
God damn, I'm a faggot
>Mage as in Support Mage or as in going to be a Sorc?
>wouldn't suggest a Support Mage simply because it's the hardest one to fuck up and there will be several.
I suppose, but I don't want to have to try and chase down a decent one who didn't upgrade Anodyne and is using the Legion's Might.
Eh. Don't want to have to babysit my pawns every single action. Will they learn if I play Assassin with a Sword and shield?
Will they ever "forget" things they learn? Like if I play the first few hours as a fighter, then spend the rest of the game as something else will the kinda resort to not using the shield again?
I thought it might be fun to create a good pawn people will want to hire. Well, as close as I can without min-maxing and going full autist.
That's almost neanderthal tier right there. Not that it's any worse than most of the face shapes available.
>another inner circle of self-proclaimed DD masters
>another super secret cabal of pimps
>another group of faggots acting high and mighty
>another assblasted collection of tripfags showing off lewd polygons
Oh yeah so fucking cool, wow I'm not invited to your gay little get together
Even the Capcom reps on Steam practically admit you can just save-swap after release.
>Q) Does the game support more than one save slot?
>A) No. The pawn trading system and interaction with the Rift server was designed around a single save and player profile. While hot-swapping save file outside of the game is technically possible, this will cause synchronization issues with the pawn you have uploaded to the Rift or shared out to friends and other community members.
you're an idiot and have no idea about the importance and fun of swapping pawns
you'll also have fuck all rift crystals and with enhancing end game gear
I'm stopping seeding and it's your fault
>I suppose, but I don't want to have to try and chase down a decent one who didn't upgrade Anodyne and is using the Legion's Might.
While basic Anodyne is strictly better, it's not a that big of a deal. It's more about having Haildom and a buffbot than the piddly heal.
>He doesn't know that the majority of premade pawns are trash as fuck and he won't be getting anywhere
Just remember, without access to online you don't have access to pawns, or trading/gifting.
Additionally you cannot do the online Ur-Dragon fight and get decent rewards from him. Also, you'll not get many rift crystals, meaning you will struggle to obtain BBI items and equipment, or upgrade them.
Without BBI gear fighting some stuff like Ur-Daimon or Condemned Gorecyclops is just a fucking chore and takes forever.
>I thought it might be fun to create a good pawn people will want to hire.
People hire pawns based entirely on looks, create a giant monster or a loli or he will never get hired. This is how the console version was, the PC community will be even worse about this.
>you will quickly realise that the game without the pawn system is no fun.
What the fuck? No.
Fuck, either they changed the order or my memory fails me, because out of everything I tried, it used to be the less shit of them all.
Then again, you're right, heads in this game are really exaggerated. Maybe you could try making the head smaller.
It's got proper RPG stuff in it. Because the combat is better, 'fetch' quests are immensely better.
Hell, quests are better in general, it's all about gameplay.
The story and presentation of the story isn't as good, but both games go for different things.
Dragons dogma doesn't really have much dialogue or quests of any description beyond go to place, kill x. It's nearly entirely about killing large monsters, climbing all over them and casting over the top spells. The gameplay is a lot more action-y than TW3 also.
Yeah, and shills are now trying to do damage control with
>b-b-but you won't have pawns!
Even though they were completely irrelevant on PS360 and people literally only got pawns based on their looks.
What arisen/pawn dynamic are you going to make anons?
Probably. I didn't like TW3 but i loved DD.
The game also doesn't have your precious Japanese voice acting, weeb.
I feel a bit afraid off how many people are gonna be disappointed expecting it to be the best thing ever while in reality it's more of a flawed gem.
Amazing if you are in it's niche, but I can see a lot of people going "what is this mediocre shit".
Somebody please post the loli screencap.
I need some strenght to keep waiting.
Does anyone else's preload keep updating periodically? it keeps downloading 0 kb for about a second then finishing. It's been doing this ever since the download finished
You can get rift crystals in BBI, if you like farming you can get hundreds of thousands in an hour or so. The Ur-dragon is kind of lame, pawns are just visual shit, there's not much difference between pre made and user made as much as autists like to think their natures don't make much of a difference.
>or quests of any description beyond go to place, kill x
the "fetch quests" aren't even quests. You take them and forget about them, they'll pop up as completed sometime during the game, and they don't give anything besides a little bit of gold and exp.
The ACTUAL quests is where it at, they are great. usually resolves around the same characters and what not, but every quest feels like a great little story/episode.
Did you even play DD before?
So the smart thing to do would be to start as a fighter, get a fighter pawn, fight with him until he has learned and can't learn new tricks, and then switch to strider and become a ranger?
Still not sure.
I was thinking of making a short Grandma type pawn but I don't think she will be hired a lot.
Maybe I'll go for an amazon, but it seems most of /v/ is doing that as well.
It's hard coming up with something that's unique, but not unique enough to scare people away.
Best hentai right there.
That was what was most fun for me next to just fighting things so I can see their point. They're still full of shit more often than not though, kind of wish they had fucked off a month ago.
Very flawed but inspiring somehow.
Currently playing through with a big sister / little sister combo. Would post pictures of both, but can't take screenshots without the obligatory XBOX LIVE sub.
Pretty fun time; I kept the younger a Strider for 20 levels or so with me a mage for the same amount of time. Then decided to make both of them fledgling knights-in-traning.
>People are mad that they aren't waiting for launch day
I paid for this game, it's taking up valuable HDD space on a Hard Drive I paid for currently Thus I'm going to crack it and enjoy it if I want to. Go fuck yourself don't pretend this game didn't come out years ago.
Well. Pretty much everyone that's not really into it hates it now since everyone hyped it up so much and it's almost like if you casually mention it people will start to shit on you.
Guess I'm just used to DD being more niche for the past few years.
hang in there bros, will seed till friday
>Continuous DD threads ever since the port was announced
Okay, you've convinced me that there might be something to this game.
I wish it would be feasible to have some kind of mod that allows switching player control over to one of your pawns
So I could dabble in mage shit sometimes but still be able to switch back to my warrior quickly instead of having to worry about respecing and all
What "actual" quests? If you're comparing any of the go to tower kill griffon, go to tomb kill cultists and skeletons, go to castle kill goblin quests to TW3's quests you're fucking retarded.
pawn customization is one part of the pawn system
do you have any idea how helpful pawns quest knowledge, inclinations and bestiary can be? or the thrill of your pawn being summoned by others, coming back to you with gifts and even more knowledge of monsters, quests etc?
The press release got cracked
I postponed getting it for my PS3, should I break the wait and try the press release or just ride it out /v/?
To be fair, it's not like the game is without chores anyhow.
It's perfectly reasonable to get some BBI weapons and gear offline.
But farming up a full kit for you and your pawn and a nice selection of the rings you want? Good fucking luck.
There's an entire class build set up that relies on playing without any pawns. They're not as interesting as waifufags let on, mostly annoying actually.
The game is good because the gameplay is good not because of some gimmick.
>the thrill of your pawn being summoned by others, coming back to you with gifts and even more knowledge of monsters, quests etc?
Would it be possible for this guy to sound more like a shill?
So are you just gonna ignore the massive amount of discussion about other stuff related to pawns?
Like it or not pawns are a pretty big part of the game.
I don't really give a shit about people pirating it. They can do what they want. I just think you are undermining a big aspect of the game.
Capcom should be aware of the leak, so I'm going to assume they're watching the forums and torrents. Not worth the fuss so gonna wait for the preload to decrypt. Hope they unlock early now
it's LITERALLY 4 days, if you call that a "ride" and can't wait it out, you have autism.
We all know that Capcom won't give us a sequel. But if they say it's because of pirates I'm gonna laugh my ass off.
My sides will be in orbit if we don't get DDO "because pirates"
>do you have any idea how helpful pawns quest knowledge, inclinations and bestiary can be?
Not helpful at all? The game isn't that hard or complex, hearing that wolves are weak to fire or that cyclops take more damage from hits to their eye isn't exactly rocket science.
Don't understand what the issue is. People who are going to pirate this and not buy it were going to do the exact same thing 5 days from now.
Since I want a sequel I will buy it to increase those chances and pirate it to play it earlier.
But its only the press release
You have to understand, I got interested in the game 2 weeks before PC release got announced, then decided to wait it out because I only got a ps3 and people said it ran like shit, 4 more days seems like a fucking eternity
For the full version?
Pretty cool, early taste here I come
Invis + vims make you unkillable also the damage clout or that %20 strength and their damage bonuses when climbing something is just not fun. Hopefully rhis time i can go magic knight since sorcerers are just all about standing still for 30 seconds then blowing up the map
You don't honestly expect anybody to be able to work with that and give you an informed answer do you
Fresh off the boat, from reddit, kid? heh I remember when I was just like you. Braindead. Lemme give you a tip so you can make it in this cyber sanctuary: never make jokes like that. You got no reputation here, you got no name, you got jackshit here. It's survival of the fittest and you ain't gonna survive long on 4chan by saying stupid jokes that your little hugbox cuntsucking reddit friends would upboat. None of that here. You don't upboat. You don't downboat. This ain't reddit, kid. This is 4chan. We have REAL intellectual discussion, something I don't think you're all that familiar with. You don't like it, you can hit the bricks on over to imgur, you daily show watching son of a bitch. I hope you don't tho. I hope you stay here and learn our ways. Things are different here, unlike any other place that the light of internet pop culture reaches. You can be anything here. Me ? heh, I'm a judge.. this place.... this place has a lot to offer... heh you'll see, kid . . . that is if you can handle it...
you use one that you create yourself and rent two others.
if you are playing legit you get to rent them from other players and your friends.
if you pirate you get randomly generated offline pawns.
Good counter dude, real classy keep it up good job. I only had difficulty in the first encounter with living armor until I figured out the gimmick, then a couple of the post BBI multi wyvern fights, the game is good but easy as hell, the pawns don't matter.
>wahhh my game won't even sell 40,000 copies on steam
You have one main pawn you made yourself. Then you hire two other pawns made by other players.
Problem is if you play offline the game can only use absolutely awful pawns that comes with the game made by the developers.
And you miss out a lot on a important end game resource.
I thought the offline pawns were pre-made? Even worse if they are randomized. Christ.
>cancel preorder and get a refund
>it's 15gb of dolphin porn
Anyone else gonna play this with a steam controller? What sort of set up is good? I haven't played many 3rd person action games with it yet. Thinking of playing some Dark Souls 2 to try and find a good config.
Tough luck m8.
>No Unpacker, Only a Crack for the Retail.
I'm not downloading this shit again, I guess I'll see you guys friday.
>internet so slow I had to leave preload on overnight
>now a torrent is out
I might just not even bother and just wait until release, have fun I guess.
>all those download speeds
>mfw mine just keeps getting higher and higher
>unpacking all that dolphin porn takes longer than downloading it
There isn't an actual leak, the file being shared around is literally 15.58 GB of dolphin porn, which you'd normally think isn't a total loss but it's mostly the same 700 MB over and over, and most of it is gay to boot.
enjoy your bitcoin miner.

This is the most temptation I've had since my second cousin fell asleep in the hot tob.
