Oh god yes. The one problem I had with the original was the frame rate and I just build a badass PC so that's been taken care of. Looks like I'm replaying this masterpiece for the 5th + time!
Finally! I remember Capcom EU's last CEO tried to make this happen a few years ago, but couldn't convince the Japan side to do it. But that was before Namco Bandai were incredibly successful with their Steam releases.
Dragon's Dogma had it's issues, but I still absolutely loved that thing.
I've been playing Dragon's Dogma Online since launch (also played in CBT2) and it's a pretty fun game. It mostly plays like regular DD but with some stuff taken out/changed to make it suit an MMO. You can't sit on hundreds of Greenwarish to heal yourself with anymore, for example. Classes are more specialized now, such as Strider being split up into Hunter and Seeker for archery and dagger-y, respectively. Seeker also gets a dope grappling hook.
If you liked Dragon's Dogma you'd probably like Dragon's Dogma Online. There's an English patch that translates most of the UI and most of the quests are just straight forward "Go here, kill this, talk to this person".
It's also great playing a Dragon's Dogma game at 1080p 60fps.
It's cool that it's getting a rerelease, but I doubt it'll solve any of the larger issues I've had with this game as an RPG since release. Even still, if other people are excited then that's cool. I doubt I'll pick this up again though. It's also strange hearing this characterized as someone's 'favorite western RPG' I'd love to hear the reasoning behind this.
Great! The game looks interesting, will give it a try. On the other hand I feel that The Witcher 3 kinda spoiled me when it comes to open world games, good thing that they announced the first big DLC today. But on the topic of ports, I'd love to give Vanquish a try on my PC.
@ahgunsillyo: There was a time where I just let that loop for over an hour. Any time I turned the game on I let it play at least once and eventually just gave up and bought the song. Hopefully someone mods it back into the game.
As for the news, when I first read it I was friggin' stoked. Absolutely love the game. One of the few times I've bought a game day one, knowing very little about it, and was completely bowled over.
Like I've mentioned in the forum thread earlier, I'll pick it up on PC again since I held off on the DLC on the PS3, so this is a perfect chance for me to both replay the game again and check that DLC out.
(also it will be fun to dick around with it using Cheat Engine)
Dragon's Dogma is one of my top 5 games of last generation. I loved it to death, and I'm totally going to pick this up when it comes out for PC. It will be nice to finally play this game on something above 15 FPS.
I feel like I'm one of the only people that DOESN'T want any multiplayer in it. Dragon's Dogma Online has no appeal to me because Co-Op isn't what I thought was missing from the game. I loved having a single player game with characters made and tweaked by the community that you can use. I don't want to deal with real people, but I love using other people's creations, seeing their designs, and how they crafted their stats. If there was ever a real Dragon's Dogma 2, I would really hope there was no multiplayer involved. I want them to add to the Pawn creation system with more customization stats and AI systems. That's what was the game's major appeal to me.
YES, finally i can close this chapter of my life!!
Ok some backstory, i played this game when it came out and really enjoyed it, and you know how it goes i just fell away from it, a half hearted attempt to return to it months later failed and i've thought about the game non stop ever since. A friend of mine picked up the game and played through it only very recently and that gave me the urge to try again, but should i start again or return to my many hours in save game? Also i play PC games primarily now so weeeh what should i do, a PC port would be great, BOOM!
So happy about this, the press release doesn't mention anything about other modifications such as removing the needless black bars, that might be one of the first mods for the game if it's possible, also hoping for 60fps, Capcom is pretty good about including that for PC and DD: Online supports it so hopefully it's here too.
Man i'm excited, i might try a different class this time around, i have to recreate my pawn Bob from Tekken, WAAAH.
@austin_walker might I also interest you in some of the shenanigans produced by DD we've had ourselves here: http://www.giantbomb.com/dragons-dogma/3030-34776/forums/gee-thanks-for-that-romance-outcome-dogma-549136/?page=1
I remember thinking it was a great game that just ran terribly without being a graphical powerhouse on consoles. I'm excited to see this coming to PC.
Yup, I felt like it had a lot of really cool stuff in it but it looked like trash and ran even worse. Also the lack of fast travel was pretty terrible sometimes. But man, the story of that game is insane in a way that I can really appreciate.
I used to be all for this, but that was years ago, it might be too late for this to happen for me.
Also, my PC's been a bit busted so I haven't played a lot of games on it lately, that's definetly also a factor.
Either way, I like that game. Had a really good character creator.
For those of you concerned about performance I'm guessing it will be similar to Dragon's Dogma Online. I've been playing it a lot and I can say it has a solid 60 at 1080. The textures used are clearly from the console game so it's fairly muddy. The shadows leave something to be desired too. It has controller support and plays just like regular DD only with small differences. Judging by their PC release of that RE DS game the textures won't get much work done to 'em.
Also to add to the hype
DD's Facebook page just confirmed 360 controller support, too! I honestly can't wait to buy this game for a third time, I've lost count on just how many times I've new-game-plus'd it. If it ends up having a solid modding community, I may end up playing it for a long, loooong time.
I loved Dark Arisen. It was my GOTY that year. (It was one of the most out of nowhere GOTY's ever for me.) I'm glad it's getting a PC port, even though I don't have a PC that could play it. Just the idea that someday I'll get to play a high resolution, high FPS version of the game is exciting.
Of course, if they were to release a PS4 version that ran smoothly I'd be way more into that and would probably get it day 1.
I am so excited to play Dragon's Dogma on PC. It took me a little while to get into but, once I did, it became one of my favourite games of the generation. The world is strange and deep enough to get lost in, with plenty of charming Japanese "touches."
The adventuring itself, is fantastic. Combining items, magic, and combat, there are so many fun ways to make your way through the game. Pawns roll with you, too, which livens up the combat as you can play to their set of skills.
All in all, Dragon's Dogma is a game worth diving into. I never imagined I would love it as much as I do.
@ahgunsillyo: The first time I heard that, I initially thought it was a super standard track, THEN SUDDENLY JROCK. I hated it, but started to love it after playing the game for a while. Really gets you pumped to cling to a griffon, stabbing the shit out of it as it tries to get away. The DA theme just doesn't compare.
This is very much a flawed game, but the sheer fun of it makes up for all the rough/unfinished bits. Some of the early development stuff is interesting:
And man, maybe I can finally play MK without dropping to sub 5 FPS.
Woohoo, glad to see this! I was also a really big fan of Dragon's Dogma.
I never got around to the Dark Arisen version since I had played the original so extensively, but now should be a pretty good time to revisit after a nice break.
Hopefully their PC port is actually decent, though.
