                i don't want a civil war though. just take all the clearly obviously evil israelites running every bank, corporation, and joe biden's cabinet, and off them. a wide open border doesn't benefit me in anyway. the brownification of america is objectively evil, and the culprits just happen to be overwhelming israeli. in terms of religion, i prayed to god once when my grandfather was sick. god didn't help, he died, and that was the end of religion for me. if my people were god favorite, why did he kill grandpa?

          People preferred the Everfall, yet the Everfall was more of an emergency measure since the base world was so small.

          Game definitely needs a super dungeon. Like "Palace of the Dead" style. 100 floors of combat and maybe a camp to fully heal up every 10 floors making it a war of attrition.

          It also desperately needs a hard mode. There is a mod to inflate enemy HP but it sadly doesn't inflate their damage, which I'd rather increase (or rather: 2x HP, 4x damage)

              On a related matter, it's finally funny how all the newbies outed themselves with anti-co-op shitposting in DD2 hype threads. All the constant citing of how it'd be sacrilegious because of going against "Itsuno's Vision," when all they've ever heard is how much people like Kinoshita's game. All Itsuno's vision has lead to is two things: people wanting a better version of the game, and people wanting a multiplayer version of the game; two things that Kinoshita delivered, and they were fantastic.

          Only someone who's never played TotK is still parroting that garbage. TotK is such a massive upgrade over BotW it makes the game feel obsolete in comparison, it's a huge improvement and a wonderful game. Comparing it to the suite of downgrades and sidegrades DD2 offers is laughable.

                Have any of you actually played the game? I can't possibly imagine going from BotW to TotK and thinking the weapon durability was somehow worse in TotK?

                The fusion mechanic means the important part of the weapon is in the millions of items in your inventory- which means weapons are even more readily disposible than in BotW. There's no "I found this cool sword, I don't want to use it because it'll break", you make that cool sword anytime you want, with whatever pieces you want.

                And if you're really so autistic that it's a problem for you, you can just repair your items when they get low anyway. Just swap them out when they're at low durability, take them to get repaired and you're done.

              That the game will allow you to break the world in the first place. Seriously, almost every open-world locks you to a certain path that you must walk in a certain order and in a certain way.

                It's just a shitty, pointless sandbox. It doesn't matter how "open" the game is when the systems are so poorly thought out, no matter how impressive they are on a technical level. If you can just break all the rules with zero effort, then you don't even have a game left.

        i don't understand why games do this today. i don't care if enemies are "smarter" and have more options. they exist to be obliterated in 2 seconds. i feel making 100 trash mobs isn't hard at all. you give them the most basic move set
        >hit
        >combo 1
        >combo 2
        >distance closer
        >special 1
        >special 2
        essentially 6 attacks per trash mob. you can even go lower with hit, combo, special. i don't care if there's 900 enemies and they all only have 3 moves, once you have a handful of different enemies, their moves will natural synergize by virtue of them attack you alone.

      Old classes except Warrior felt better in 1. Could customize more skills. You have built in skills in 2 you don't need to equip, but you can't change those.
      Yellow vocations were raped and mostly removed to add thief, a vocation which has no upgraded class, which is basically just half of a yellow class in 1.
      MK and Assassin are notably both gone despite being very popular and in their place we have:
      Thief (covered)
      Spear guy: Doesn't feel like an evolution of anything, but its okay
      Trickster: Doesn't feel like an evolution of anything, a mindless buff spam class but you can't put it on pawns (???) and one of its main skills hurts you entire team so you're supposed to use it with mage (??? why? I'm already using my main guy on buffing). Actual garbage class.
      Wayfarer: Not even a real class; it just copy pastes moves from other classes
      So of the new classes 1 is a downgrade from something in 1, 1 is a gimmicky mess and 1 is something they clearly just threw in a tthe last minute to claim they added +1 class
      Combat feels worse since the game spams the same enemies so much at you. Its like fighting that one Ogre between the two towns in 1, except its not optional and its every few minutes or more.
      And even lore wise its a downgrade because apparently the Arisen is a little b***h now and Dragons can casually mind-rape your pawns into betraying you and the Arisen themselves can't fix this; you have to beg brine-sama to frick sense into your pawns for you
      Progression is boring because vocations are more annoying to access and shop items outperform most on the map, making exploration also poinltess
      Despite all of these downgrades, nothing was actually improved outside of char creation. Everything is the exact same or actively worse (while not being different enough to stand-out)

          Yes and sadly I don't see any of this being fixed. The limited skill choices alone makes it worse than 1 right away and that's clearly an intentional design choice to 'nerf' the classes (even though it actually just makes players more likely to spam the one op move)

        The pathfinder is the seneschal you twat. He's called even called the watcher.

        The difference is, the cycle is not at it's end. He is making dragons and arisen for entertainment, not to find a replacement like in the first game.
        The reason the founder of Vernmund is an angry ghost is specifically because he found out the whole dragon/arisen shit is just entertainment for a bored god.
        That is the entire thing until you frick up his plans. He's bored and even intervenes several times to keep the show rolling (he literally helps you escape imprisonment during the tutorial for frick sake). The seneschal in the first game never once gets involved because he is looking for a suitable replacement, not for entertainment.

                The justification of his anger is all right for me, problem is how you just met the guy and he simply hands you the godsbane instead of even if not creative at all a PROVE YOUR METTLE ARISEN etc. Boss fight and after you defeat him you actually get the sword.
                Instead of: Hey you are here to kill me? Nah? Cool here Godsbane.

      This game was only in development for 3-3.5 years. They started after DMC5SE.

      The marketing was weird and low-budget from the get-go and the pace of reveals was weird, so it's pretty obvious that Capcom phoned this one in and forced it out way before it was ready. They weren't even ready to show to game off last summer, we only got our first look in late November.

      Like, they canceled DDO so Kinoshita could work on this game. There's no universe where Itsuno is secretly actually an awful director who's been fooling us for years. Kinoshita would have been able to pull it out like he did for DD and DDO. So clearly it's executive frickery as always.

    That game is absolutely fricking insanity in hindsight. It has like, the amount of enemies, bosses and critters as literally every elder scrolls, Zelda and diablo game all combined.

    Ontop of having a completely open world you can just walk into and out of dungeons in, and literally go through the underground and come back up somewhere else.

    The progression is opposite of Dogma. You think it's been long enough, that the end is near, suddenly there's more and it keeps going.

    It's a fricking insane game and eve more insane is they appear to have basically made it's own sequel to be included in it as a mere expansion. Fromsoftware must be the tightest run ship in the industry. They just look insanely impressive post all these games that have released since.

      elden rings content is definitely impressive but i dont think its a fair comparison to most open world games.
      its an incredibly static world with no interaction besides killing things and occasionally an NPC. every enemy is isolated in its behavior, and is just a statblock with an attack script, compared to something like botw where the enemies react to basically everything and have complex behavior trees. thats the compromise ER makes to have so much shit.
      dd2 doesnt have an excuse, but a lot of other comparisons i see here irk me a little, because its like saying 'dragon quest has 300 enemies and devil may cry only has 20!'. games have very different priorities for how they allocate their resources.

      NOTHING about the DLC indicates it'll be a massive experience, Miyazaki said the map will be about the size of Limgrave. he could be underselling it but that is entirely fan speculation backed up by nothing we have seen.

        He said it was physically the size of limgrave but more dense. And limgrave was already the most dense of the five areas. Unless he's lying I don't see how it doesn't end up being the biggest souls DLC

      >That game is absolutely fricking insanity in hindsight
      No, games like Elden Ring and BG3 are simply an accurate representation of the kind of progress the rest of the industry should have made in the past decade plus, and even those games still have flaws. The fact that you think this way demonstrates both the utter failure of the industry to keep up, as well as their efforts to keep your expectations artificially low so you'll keep buying new consoles without justification.

      DD2 represents the utter stagnation of game design and vision among major studios. Twelve whole fricking years after the first game, two console generations later, and it still doesn't even come close to measuring up to the original concept for DD1, never mind exceeding it. There is no advancement anywhere except graphics, and DD2 can't even manage that properly without horrendous performance issues.

      The problem is that an entire generation of young adults have never known the industry in any other state, and they can't envision a future of games being better because games have been the same for most of their lives. They weren't around for the big graphical leaps of the 8 to 16 to 32 bit eras, so they can't relate to the idea of imagining how much cooler and crazier games will be 5-6 years later. And so they are awed by the rare game like Elden RIng or BG3 which actually demonstrates the progress all major games should have been making. Because of that, they will never know to expect or demand better, treating these like rare "impossible" games and getting into social media battles over "30fps is fine actually" instead of understanding that it's completely justified to be disappointed in this bullshit.

        First of all, DDO was still updating five years ago.
        Second of all, it doesn't matter how fricking long it's been since the last game. What matters is how long they give you to make the next game. And as always, they didn't give Itsuno enough time on this one.

          Not my fricking problem. If he "didn't have enough time" he should have scaled things back to a reasonable level or just not fricking made it. I don't need someone else making excuses for a guy who knows how all this shit works by now. He's not exactly a newcomer, he's been in this industry for a long time.

            If your publisher tells you you'll have five years to make a game, and then changes their mind a year and a half later, that's not your fault. It doesn't matter how fricking good of a director you are, you have to be able to have faith that your company isn't going to just randomly frick you over.

            It's true that itsuno should realize at this point that Capcom intentionally fricks him over because they know they can get away with it and still sell his games, but that's just it. DD1 got screwed over in development but they still gave him four years. This time they gave him three. What are you supposed to do as a director? Hedge your bets and go for a 2 year development time in case they frick you over even more? If you did that theyd just give you a smaller budget and frick you over even MORE the next time. You can't make games if you're not sure whether you're getting 2, 3, or 4 years to make them.

              Every fricking dev working for a big publisher gets jerked around by them. It sucks that's the way it is but it's ultimately still up to the dev to deal with it and release the best game they can given the circumstances. There's nothing special about Itsuno's case.

                He did release the best game he could given the circumstances. He's literally famous for doing that, it's his specialty. He did it with DMC4, DD1. This guy's career started with fricking DMC2, dude. Why do you think you know better than him how to make the best out of a bad situation? Frick, Capcom intentionally screws him over because they know he'll pull it out in the end, even though he obviously performs way better when given time and a budget.

                This sort of thing is his fricking specialty and you still think he could have done better. This isn't even a bad game why are people talking like it's a bad game

                I think the main criticism from the people that actually played the game not the braindead morons that keep sunking their entire day watching youtube videos instead of playing game. Is that the game is good but the ending felt rushed and enemy variability is even less compared to DD1.

        DDDA doesn't "just end". You get a pretty adequate explanation of everything. What Grigori (and the dragons) really are, the mythology and organization of the world, what Pawns are, what the Seneschal and Arisens are.
        It isn't entirely satisfying because it's overall a short story even if the game itself has more content to play, but it's a decently told story
        To be fair, I've not played DD2 nor do I intend to, so I've no idea if this isn't the case for DD2. But DD1 at least had a good story.

                Thank god he warned me and I went back to exploring every nook and cranny of the game, but yeah the game simply pull the carpet out of nowhere.

    I can see the complaints of the story suddenly ending if you get the normal ending. But the true ending at least offers a bit more of a conclusion. With you willingly choosing to doom the world, find your Pawn, halt the calamity, gather the survivors of the five main hubs and bring them to the ruins of Gran Soren watch your Pawn fight giant monsters in Talos to hold back the Calamity, kill the last two calamity monsters before taking on not God this time, but the metaphysical embodiment of the cycle itself.

    Also the credits for that ending, very much shows every NPC you decided to help out if you spent time trying to help as many as you could instead of rushing things. I had the Elves, Sven, Ulrika, Wilhelmina, the Cat People, Brant all show up in my end credits, with gaps clearly there for others to show up if I did their questlines.
    Either way, I enjoyed it and felt satisficed with the ending I got.

    I finished the game at 60 hours and did a large chunk of the exploration / side quests etc. But I’m really confused by the exploration of this game and idk how people are comparing it to Skyrim or Elden ring

    Firstly, the BEST weapons and armour sets are all locked behind the shops (especially the end game shops) so it makes the idea of walking around and exploring redundant if the loot pool isn’t worth it

    The enemies are ALL the same. There isn’t any unique bosses (bar Medusa) in the game to warrant the exploration. You will fight the same goblins etc no matter what cave you’re in and there is little outcome of anything different. Elden ring had the luxury of it being unique. Everywhere you went there would be something new to see and fight. Skyrim… well it’s Skyrim.

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind this game at all but I don’t think it’s anywhere close to a masterpiece. I just don’t really get the “I’m having a blast exploring” counter arguments when there actually isn’t much substance to discover.

    Not to mention there aren’t many side quests in the game so exploring will most likely not give you any new quests to find (bar the occasional one)

    When Itsuno talked about how he didn't have enough time/budget to complete his vision in the original game, I assumed that added time would have equaled added depth.

    I'm sure he wanted more monsters, right?
    Maybe he wanted a more complete endgame?
    And probably a more compelling story with fleshed-out characters?
    He definitely would have had those vocations from the concept art...?

    I think this is how most fans interpreted his statements and, when DD2 was announced as the true realization of his original vision, people went in expecting these things. From the standpoint of the players, these are all reasonable expectations that would have truly pushed the series to the next level. Now, looking back on my time with DD2, it's clear what Itsuno's vision actually was. It's so obvious when you realize what Itsuno chose to highlight in the prerelease advertising: More experimental stuff.

    Seriously, look at what DD2's focus was on. What are the things that truly separate it from the original? You have:

    >Experimental vocations like the Trickster and Warfarer, both of which feel half-baked.
    >Talos, a standalone setpiece that resembles the most boring fights in Monster Hunter.
    >A new playable race with its own civilization and culture.
    >A plague that gets passed through the pawn system.
    >A time-limited, rougelike endgame.
    >A QTE final boss

    Itsuno didn't look at DD1 and ask himself "What could I do to make this better from the player's standpoint?" but instead "What are some wild ideas that I would have liked to do in the original?"

    A series this bizarre can only come from the mind of such a person, but now I feel it needs to evolve from "what Itsuno wants to do" to "what will address the shortcomings of the games" if it's going to survive.

          Remember how there's a super evil magic lab literally called the Forbidden Magic Laboratory that you can just waltz into the back entrance and walk around talking to people with no problem?
          Remember how the False Sovran gets fought in a timed battle, doesn't die, then disappears from the game completely with no-one ever mentioning him again?
          Remember how the Queen Regent game of thrones-lite plot gets ended in a line of dialogue that basically just says Disa did nothing wrong because she was actually doing it for the citizenry haha!
          Remember how you gather everyone at the Seafloor Shrine to try and save them only for a beacon to appear there immediately making all of that effort completely pointless, also never properly resolving any of their fates?
          Remember when enemies had variety and weren't a complete fricking joke?
          Remember when you couldn't kill bosses in seconds by standing on their backs spamming X?
          Remember the Everfall?

              Yup. The whole pawn racism thing falls really flat. None of the NPC's ever comment on it. The only thing that I noticed is one of the inns charges you 9999G per night. Except there's another inn that I guess isn't racist against pawns where you can pay 2K... or just buy the player housing there for another 20k. It's just fricking stupid.

              I'd like to know that too. I don't think they ever actually explain why the Beastren cat people are racist towards pawns. They just use them as slave labor on Volcano Island and you get told that pawns aren't welcome in Battahl. Nothing ever comes of it.

    honestly, this—it's miyazaki's fault. it's all his fault. miyazaki, well, my friends and I call him zack—it's a deathly primo nation reference, you wouldn't get it, he sold out. he turned an entire generation of games into underdogs. the really underappreciated stuff, the spider-man 2s, the horizon forbidden wests, they don't, they're not fighting an easy battle. gamers expect more. he delivered such a perfect game that everything else, it sucks in comparison. it makes other games look bad. no one wants to buy an open world game unless it has his name on it now, and that's, that's really just unfair to everyone else. they all want more elden ring. dragon's dogma 2 was supposed to be this cultural moment, this pillar for everyone to lean on, a true gem, and it is. it did all of the things we expected and more, it's incredible, but it's just not enough for a post-elden ring world. people want it to be something it isn't, and that's, well, it's not right.

      The combat is arguably better in DD:DA because you have more options and it's more responsive.
      If you ever got annoyed by constantly getting halted by shockwaves or getting stuck on the ground for an hour then you'll probably like DD:DA more.

    So the newest troony misinformation and discredit is saying the lack of content and disappointing elements are "ITSUNOS VISION" to futher undermine him, while ignoring the writing on the wall which is:

    >Itsuno had to make DMCV and turn it into a success so that Capcom would let him make DD2

    why can't nips into ui/menu management? there are many issues with it but some of the most egregious shit:
    not showing sell price outside of actually selling
    can't sort inventory alphabetically
    can't multi-select to give shit to pawns
    buying something closes the buy menu and brings you to the previous menu
    can't sort gear by what can be equipped
    can't deposit equipped gear, have to close all the way out of the menu, go to equipment, take it off, and deposit it, instead of just "this item is equipped, are you sure you want to send it to storage". this also applies to sending shit to pawns
    when pressing map in a city, you have to press back to go to the world map to open the quests. why can't you just view the quests from city map?
    this game is still goty for me but so much of this shit should've been noticed by one single person and made to be intuitive, it's a goddamn aaa game. there's so much more too.

    Why do people think Capcom won't do the same again? They'll release the DLC, a year and a half later and everybody will love it again. And so the cycle continues. I'm still farming drakes for Wyrmcrystals and upgrading my gear before doing the true ending. Did these homosexuals forget that Dragon's Dogma is short in story so you can also replay it easily? The first one is that way. I beat it at least 8 or 9 times, doing full BBI runs each time. How much fun you have is what you decide to use the time for, not finishing a game once the credits roll.
