I'm always amazed by Nolan's masterful use of cinematography as a story-telling device such as with these two images. Take note of CIA in front of the plane. It is a well balanced shot where man and horizon form perfect quadrants on the frame. Together they act as Cartesian axes, intersecting to create an origin around which the rest of the world is ordered. This is clearly an image of a man who thinks he's in control. The following shot supports this by contrast where we see the hired guns in a car blindfolded and disoriented. The camera shakes violently and the horizon is askew. This is a shot of men who are not in control. For the next minute of dialogue CIA maintains his mask of composure as he orders his men and interrogates his captives. It's not until the staged killing when a double-masked Bane questions the reality of what his senses perceive. Bane rejects the world that CIA had built around the captives and this quite literally shakes his foundation. CIA stumbles for the first time in this moment, partly rustled by the turbulence, partly taken a back by Bane's ability to speak, but primarily shaken by the tremors of the crumbling system of order he had built and maintained in the figurative image of the Agency. As CIA and Bane converse face to face it is Bane who remains steady, whereas CIA shakes in frustration as he struggles to restore order with idle threats. It is then that we see the second plane approaching the first, both of which take on an axial form (plane) from the wings and fuselage. The one "plane" flips the other, turning CIA's world upside-down. In the midst of chaos and a broken system Bane establishes himself as a new order, pic related. With his heart at the origin, his body becomes the vertical and horizontal axes, and all space around him is a new Cartesian plane risen from the ashes of CIA's order and metric. As the shell of an old world drops away orientation and verticality is restored.
Depends what kind of Mystic Knight you want. Go Mage 1-10 and then sorcerer the rest of the way if you want to go only magic.
I'm going to start a mystic knight aswell for my playthrough but I will go with a more balanced build.
If it's your first playthrough then pretty much just do what you want and mix however you think the best.
ITS JUST SITTING THERE
I WANT TO PLAY IT
GOD DAMN IT

I'm using DS4 and I'm stuck with Keyboard and mouse prompts.
Can't remove them.
Can't change them.
I can still walk and attack with the DS4, but the prompts are all using the PC commands.
So a question to you veterans.
This pawn guy following me around sometimes stops to pick up loot.
Is this nigger stealing from me?
Does he keep his own stock? Will he use those items on me, or is it "my job" to keep everyone on their feet?
He sure is a talkative faggot too.
Any. Pick any class and have fun with it.
Ignore these kinds of builds for now >>324043961 and just get to know the vocations better. You'll have plenty of time to explore them and you can always roll another character if you want.
Going for an assassin shota with loli support
Ok, serious question, I'm on a laptop from 2013, it's good enough to run SFIV at 60 FPS but doesn't really run AAA games released in the last couple years
Would I be able to play this port at a playable framerate? I'll make do with lowered graphical settings if necessary
I'm gonna build a PC soon anyway but if I can run this I wouldn't mind buying and replaying DD now
Newfag here to DD. What class do you guys recommend starting as? I just care about being able to make it through the game to soak in the story for now.
This scene in 60fps
You really don't have to do the min-maxing shit at all either, especially not on a first run, so just go with whatever sounds cool and feels fun, and try out different classes because they all play very differently
20K is pretty good for the middle of a work day in one of the biggest markets.
Also, what benefits are there to starting off in hard mode besides increased money and experience?
Do I get access to rare items or better drops?
is this cute enough or should i go loli and make my pawn shota?
I made a thread and now can't delete it, so I'll just report this here:
I was able to transfer save from pirated to paid steam version and got online to work.
Here is the method I used.
1. Download conversion tool from here: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=192292605&postcount=579
2. Put your pirated save file in the same dir as exe, keeping the name as DDDA.sav; you can find it in C:\Users\<your-username>\AppData\Roaming\Steam\CODEX\367500
3. Put your proper save file from Steam version in the same dir as exe, naming it DDDA-orig.sav; find it in B:\games\Steam\userdata\<your-steamid>\367500\remote
4. Convert both files to text using commands
DDsavetool -u ddda.sav
DDsavetool -u DDDA-orig.sav
You should expect to see this output in console:
Unpacked save to ddda.sav.txt
Unpacked save to DDDA-orig.sav.txt
5. Open DDDA-orig.sav.txt in text editor and find out your own steam-id in one of last lines:
<u64 name="mSteamID" value="76561197980142539"/>
6. Open DDDA.sav.txt in text editor and replace the line with pirated steam-id with your own you found in last step.
7. Run this command to create proper save file for Steam:
DDsavetool -r ddda.sav.txt
You should expect output:
Repacked save to ddda.sav
8. Put newly created save file ddda.sav to where you originally got it, B:\games\Steam\userdata\<your-steamid>\367500\remote
9. Start the game using Steam. It should just work. Don't forget to go to options and change the game to online mode.
If you're not interested in the combat that much Sorcerer is the class for you, and this is not saying that it can't be fun as hell either.
And if you get bored of it you can switch to Mystic knight and Magick Archer without missing much of a beat.
STOP AIDING PIRATES FOR FUCKS SAKE
THEY DESERVE TO BE KEKED HARD
I WANT THEM TO CRY WHILE A GIGANTIC BBC RUTS THEIR MOTHERS AND GFS
FUCK YOU YOU FUCKING ANTI-KEK ENABLERS IM GOING TO RIP YOUR ASS APART
But at least it looks decent in cutscenes
You should just use an Xbox controller or just play and remember what buttons do what. I don't think most developers even bother to put PS button prompts in most games unless it's a really thorough port.
This looks so freakin good on PC holy shit. Runs well too.
So, I plan to choose Sorcerer as the main job for my Arisen, but I want a healer Pawn.
Let's say both me and my pawn are, initially, mages. After level 10, should I keep my pawn's job as a mage (I've heard it levels up with bad stats).
>LOOK IN YOUR BULLS HARD DRIVE
IT'S NOT ANYWHERE IN THE STEAM FOLDERS BRO
I KNOW WHERE SOUNDTRACKS GO, BUT THIS FUCKING GAME'S OST HAS BEEN FUCKING TAKEN FROM ME IT DOESN'T EXIST IN THE GAME'S FOLDER
>piratefags still bought the game
>"lol eat shit"
Go fuck yourself
The same thing happens with my XBOX control.
Can someone,who is using the DS4, upload their config file?
Usually play singleplayer games on harder difficulties and just adapt to it. How is that in this game? Is it fair? Or should i just play normal.
>Get loadsa points in strider and some awesome skills
>Okay time to be a Magick Archer
>My best skills are gon
What the FUCK is dis BULLJIT
Hard is a bit of bullshit since everything does more damage and enemies drop more gold - meaning that in the beginning, you'll get twoshot by bats and in the end, you'll swim in dosh and XP.
im not against piracy at all but how do you justify this mindset? you clearly enjoy the game enough to play it, why don't you want to give money to the company bringing you what you enjoy?
I can't make this no matter how hard I try.
Bats are deadly as fuck on hard. That said the rest of it is do able but you need to be on the fucking ball with blocking. I wouldn't even bother trying it with a mage to be flat out honest.
He has his own inventory which you can acesss by going to the pawns tab. If he's your main pawn (the one you custom created) than you klcan just leave that shit in there. If it's another pawn you hire make sure to clear their inventory before dismissing them or you won't get that gear back
idk if this is a bug or intentional but i have this weird circle around my character that is a different shade during night time
>Manual can only be accessed through the main menu
>try hard mode
>get 1 hit ko'd by a goblin
so.....this....is the power of....... ranged/magic-only mode
but if you don't support the good games why the fuck would they keep making them if shit games actually do sell?
thats a realistic business choice, if the first doesn't sell shit why port a sequel?
He has his own inventory. He carries things for you. If you ever get rid of him, his entire inventory will go to your party stockpile. You can also sell directly from his inventory in stores, or just move it over to yourself.
Doesn´t sony actually have the rights to it?
Because if they were just the publishers for PS4 FROM surely would have ported it to PC like Helldivers, which was also published by sony both on PS4 and PC, yet sony doesn´t have the rights to.
If the decision was in FROMs hands why wouldn´t they simply slapdash a port to tap into the steam market and its larger profit margin? Sony would surely publish it, as it would mean an additional profit for them as well.
I'm using a DS4 and DS4Windows and I just clicked the hide controller option then plug in the controller and it works fine. Had to do the same thing with Dark Souls.
haha it's hard anon
It's retarded, not because it makes things harder but because it boots XP and gold received considerably. So you choose hard because normal gets boring really fast and then they still try and make the game easier anyway.
Hard mode does:
>Damage taken by the Arisen is greatly increased
>Enemy stagger resistance increased
>Experience gained increased
>Gold drops SIGNIFICANTLY increased
>Stamina consumption from special attacks increased
At the start of the game basically every monster will have an attack that can one shot you, and large monsters will one shot you with basically any attack. As you level up you start taking less and less damage until you overcome these shortcomings.
I haven't played enough in hard mode to say if it's good or bad, i can only say that normal mode became one of the most boring and dull gaming experiences i have had in a while by like level 35
did not play BBI though
>meet Brendan fraiser on the street
>say "hi Brendan, loved you in the mummy"

>"sorry I didn't catch that", I reply

>"not quite yet" i reply, grinning smugly and putting my hand to my chin
>turn around and shart violently into his face
>my mfw when
I doubt any tru consolefag cares about DD at this point.
maybe he's just retarded
Could you please, upload your config file to pastebin or here?
The file is here

Both. I've tried emulating with the DS4 and just plugging my XBOX controller. Same results.
>>thats a realistic business choice, if the first doesn't sell shit why port a sequel?
Because capcom has unrealistic sales expectations. DMC4 sold more than every single other DMC game, and they still went "hurr not expectations" and later did the reboot.
Then there's shit like "Buy our 15-year old PSX game a mirrion times and then maybe we'll consider reviving the franchise
no we won't lol"
the game actually challenges you for the first 40 levels, which is where you spend most of the main game in the field, compared to the challenge being put in the everfall anf the second go around of BBI in normal. Weaknesses also matter more, but not so much that you have to rely upon them to kill things
Dragons dogma fans are often blind to a lot of the problems in the game.
- The lack of interesting characters and general poor writing/story before the fight with grigori (90%) of the base game.
- Large empty world with bland environments
- Muddy textures and graphics
- Largely boring colour scheme
- Pawn AI glitches and general incompetence
- useless NG+ moode
- frustrating damage threshold mechanics, especially in daemonheim
- general unfinished quality to the game.
In addition, it's incredibly obnoxious to see DD fans discredit other series like souls combat, while DD's combat allows for large scaling of monsters and interesting special abilities, the combat doesn't feel nearly as weighty or satisfying in close quarters 1-1 combat as souls does, where there is a much greater test of challenge.
Reminder if you believe you are decent at video games you should start hard because the game is easy as fuck otherwise. Anyone parroting this "normal is hard" bullshit is trash at all vidya and should be treated like the shitter they are.
I hole-hardedly agree, but allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go. Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it's a peach of cake.
Playing online does not seem to change anything major abotu gameplay, although I was able to find some nice pawns.
For one, it is illegal to impersonate the people who die to give us our right. Second, do not call yourself the top sniper in the US Armed Forces because we all know Dann well that is not true. That would be Chris Kyle. These people are damnit good, and write a blank check to our government for a total of and up to their lives. Also our military would never represent themselves in such a shitty manner. If you truly are in the US military I hope your commanding officer sees this and does justice because this is against all United States Military morales and standards. You should be -blam!-ing ashamed of yourself for using false Valor to tell others off. It is highly illegal and is also a disgrace to those who have given their lives or worse for you to be able to even talk like this to others. Go suck a fat cock, asshole.
Gonna have to agree with this
I'm >>324046343 and even though i did not get to BBI i don't believe the "hud gaem XD" hype about that place one bit considering i haeard the exact same thing when the original game came out and there was no BBI or Hard mode.
The extra gold and XP just fucking sucks though.
>feel nearly as weighty or satisfying in close quarters 1-1 combat as souls does,
Because spinning around like a fucking top fishing for backstabs then lag-teleport stabbing you was such awesome combat.
Hello I am a professional meme inspector and I have to say that you've found yourself a real quality meme here. Note the curvature of the eye-bulge and the sharpness of the teeth, truly an artisan methodology was applied when crafting this.
Now, I've called in an expert to help me identify some of the finer points of this meme. Dr. Greentext?
>Note head-shape, real asymmetry, not false asymmetry. Lots of fakes coming out of China these days
>Text in background is stellar, slight occlusion by asymmetrical shadow really just takes my breath away.
If I had to appraise this meme, based on its high quality, I would say you could expect at least $32,000 at an open auction, and even more at the right kind of auction.
This appraisal was brought to you by the Esfoures society of antiquity.
can i play it on high settings?
Geforce GTX 870M
NO BERSERK ARMORS NO BUY.
Suck my cock CAPCOM
Okay guys, I finally upgraded the batmobile, onto training my pawn now, what should I do?
Should I be getting frame drops on a 670 and an i726k? I'm standing in from of the equipment you can choose and when a pan the camera it drops a bit. It's not even maxing out my gpu either.
Why do you think there wouldn't be randomly generated pawns?
Why do you think pirates had access to pawns of all levels when in offline mode?
Why do you think they'd ship a game with no ability to get team mates without internet,?
Why do you think the dev is crippling players for where they live or what they can afford?
>forgot to do the quest with the girl lost in the witchwoods
>get out of the gran soren undergrounds with the tentacles and shit
>finishing that quest makes the witchwoods one fail
>no way to avoid talking to the npc when you get out
B E Y O N D
I'm doing the quest where you fight the lizards in the well. My attacks do something like 1% of their health while they one shot me. Was I supposed to get better equipment somewhere? Can I purchase equipment? I don't think I saw any shops.
HOW DO YOU MOD FRYING INTO FREE BACK INTO THE GAME
I REFUSE TO START PLAYING UNTIL I CAN HEAR IT IN-GAME
since Im too retard to make good looking pawn
I just gonna copy someone else then
>Instantly dislike it
At least I had enough RC to buy the character change right after getting to the camp back on my PS3
>I don't seem to have anywhere else to go.
>huge ass gate in front of well
>implying there aren't multiple autists on /v/ right now
anon, this is why pawns are there. Hire some above level pawns. I suggest a Warrior and Sorcerer/Mage with ice spells. But since the game just released I only have to say git gud.
Level progression for people who worry about shit like that. Balanced Attack and Magic Attack; balanced Def and Magic Def. At level 200, gear is god, but you can flip to any class and be balanced.
Stat growth is based on class being played AT LEVEL-UP ONLY; you can play 99.9% of the game as a Sorc if you want, only when you level up does it check class for stat growths.
Start (level 1): Strider
Level 2-10 (9 levels): Strider
Level 11-100 (90 levels): Strider 7, Fighter 28, Sorceror 28, Assassin 27
Level 101-200 (100 levels): Fighter 30, Sorceror 36, Magic Archer 34
Final Stats (ignoring size):
M. ATK 510
M. DEF 401
>the same exact post twice
>within 30 seconds of each other
Guys I've not played Dragon's Dogma before, think I'm going to get the PC version now due to hearing good things.
What's better for the game, keyboard & mouse or controller?
Friendly reminder that stat gains differ on levels but
stats don't matter when you look cute
That's what you should be doing unless you want to make the game boring and miss on content. You just need to take it seriously and go prepared, enjoy it while it's an actual mechanic and you're not overleved for all of it.
>going to sleep now without having played because 10 am PST
>have to work all day tomorrow to catch up with commissions
>have to drive my family to something on Sunday, which will probably take me the whole day
>college and work on Monday
>mfw because of that fucked up release time, I'll only play this next Friday
Fuck you Crapcom, I'm refunding this shit as soon as I can.
The keyboard and mouse controls aren't that bad, but I still prefer playing with a controller
>always break crates around to see what's inside
>pawn starts doing the same
>mfw /v/ didn't lie.
>want to go archer
>want to go sorc
Not skeletons just the regular zombies
the ones that appear outside Gran Soren at night, pretty sure it doesn't count undead warrior as well but I'm not certain.
That is probably the most ambiguous one.
>the combat doesn't feel nearly as weighty or satisfying in close quarters 1-1 combat as souls does
more versatile and have very unique things but you can play the entire game with the basic classes if you want. the only shitty one is Mage because it lacks the punch Sorcerer gets and why would you play the heal bitch
ok, looks like im not the only one with that problem.
i thought my volume control was broken in game since it seemed like the audio wasnt getting any louder.
went back into windows and my music was LOUD AS FUCK!
Requesting the picture that has the specs for that loli pawn.
help a man out.
The advanced classes aren't really better, they just change how a class works a bit.
Warriors are the only class that focuses on sword and shield.
Mages are the only class that can heal.
Striders do something. I think it was more dps? It's a great class for pawns, though. Ranger AI is retarded.
>Quest to get on top of tall thing
>Get barrel to climb on top of
>Place barrel next to tall thing
>Pawn immediately breaks it
I hope you can double jump or cast ice pillars mah man
Yes, In Gran Soren you can pay to change your pawns skin color, voice, hair, hair color and eyebrows. But you can't change their height or scars or eyes...and physical thing pretty much. (Unless you buy a thing with rift crystals)
Holy fucking shit Immolation is so damn good
I've been shitting on everything in hardmode with this it
That's pretty funny actually desu senpai.
>balance between magic and strength
No. This is wrong.
MK is all Magic. You're either spamming Great Cannon, doing Perfect Blocks, or attacking with an elemental/enchanted weapon- which procs off Mag.
Never. Get. Strength. On. MK. Ever.
Same problem but if I go into Big Picture it says it's redownloading it haha thanks for the preload
>gotta work for the next 4 hours
>then gotta work out
H-have fun guys
