Our videos of Dragon's Dogma

After three years of development and a fairly good amount of money, Dragon's Dogma is finally available. Visually, the game is certainly a bit disappointing, with too many pop-up and framerate issues, some annoying traces of aliasing and poorly designed characters. That being said, it you can get passed all that, the landscapes are pretty nice nonetheless and the combat system, not to mention the impressive monsters, make the game very appealing. It's just a shame there is no strong story behind the game, as in the end, Capcom's title really is a mix of good and just average. We captured a few videos of the Xbox 360 version, so come on in and check them out.

hehe, I like your pawn's name.

I'm definitely excited to try this one out. It certainly can look wonky and the graphical glitches are a bummer but it's got some really nice things going for it. Hopefully the negatives don't get in the way and ruin it.

"So, uh. We did an autopsy on a cyclops today. Found 900,001 Arrows in him... strangest thing."

Looked so appealing a year ago and was hoping they would polish the frame rate but even the finished version is the same looking as it was back then. Shame really because its the only possible way Crapcom would have got money off me this year. Role on RE2 REmake.

Give a damn ´bout this game where the Fxx are the vids of the RE 6 demo which came bundled with it - aint it.
Seriously, its good that Capcom is moving into another direction other than Zombie survival horror genre.
But still, where´s mine RE 6 vid ;-)

After playing both versions of the demo the PS3 version definately looked and performed better.

i love everything i seen from this game, though it could need some minor tweaks for menu, being able to swap special ability anytime and not needed to go and see someone so you can do it (feels limited), unlimited sprint would be fantastic since the game is so freaking huge.
Just minor things, other than that, its great.

Though I heard environments never change much. The outside will look the same until its like in some dungeon, between mountains...etc. There is no rain, snow, fantasy architecture, statues, enchanted sceneries..etc. which is a shame since Amalur had that and it was so good at that.

Umm...the game comes with the code for the RE6 demo on the back of the instruction manual. But the demo isn't available on 360 until the 3rd of July and the demo isn't available on the PS3 until the 4th of September.

I know there was a demo shown to press before but they only described it through text and didn't have video. Probably gonna be awhile. Or maybe we'll see something at E3.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (21 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (21 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (22 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (22 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (22 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (22 Hours ago)
