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.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The BF1 interface is literally the same thing. The only difference is you load a huge client to reach the UI instead of clicking on a bookmark. Guess which one is faster? (16 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And the like.. primary complaint that people had about Battlelog on PC was the plugin. It doesn't use a plugin anymore. (16 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like being able to take stock of my favorites in a manner of seconds. And I don't need to load the client until I find a game I want to play. (16 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea, really. It's much faster than loading a beast of a client just to look at a server browser or join a queue. Why would I want to waste time and resources before I actually need to *play*? (16 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Really? I was never a fan of launching the game through a web browser. The stats and everything else i was okay with. (16 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Why do I want to load a huge game client just to check my favorites? Just to wait in queue? It doesn't make sense. (17 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm scared of the new Battlefield UI. I think Battlelog works pretty great on PC and I'm worried that it'll have a negative impact on the population. (17 Hours ago)
