    It was obviously a disappointment after the first few trailers and it being DD1.2. No reptrospection needed

    • 3 weeks ago

      The funniest thing was people saying "DD1.2 is EXACTLY what I want!" back then, and then trashing the game for being DD1.2

      • 3 weeks ago

        I wish it was a dd 1.2, but its more like a 0.8.

      • 3 weeks ago

        The original DD feels unfinished so people were fine with DD1.2 because people thought it would be DD1.2 as in "way bigger map, more locations, more enemy types".
        Instead it still feels unfinished, has bugs and performance issues, and has a more limited character creator.

    >normalizing purchasing DLC to fix a dogshit game

    • 3 weeks ago

      Team Ninja does it all the time. Capcom is also the master of 99 cent pay2win DLC items. Well I guess until the Chinese started doing the same and made billions off their countrymen.

      • 3 weeks ago

        Wo Long's the only TN game that's gone that path. Nioh 1 was fixed by Nioh 2.

    >combat is still industry peak
    What kind of cope is that? You have like two attacks and there's like 5 enemies tops. No, DD2's combat is not the peak of anything except mediocrity. Stop trying to save the face of every game that has been overhyped.

    >nihil said he was disappointed in dd2
    that settles it. Dd2 is unequivocally a lame sequel

    • 3 weeks ago

      He did? I thought he said he liked it.

      He did? I thought he said he liked it.

      Nihil is moronic and doesn't care about the game's world, quests, or story

      • 3 weeks ago

        Yeah, he cares about the gameplay, which in a game is more important than all of that shit.

    i wasnt hyped and had fun i just am waiting for dlc/ patches to return to it just like sstarfield and like 5 other games on my "play another day" list

    >quests arent interesting

    if they make you fight more things and fighting things is fun whats the problem?

    • 3 weeks ago

      >if they make you fight more things
      they dont though
      they make you walk from point A to point B to get nothing or at best you fight that same bandit cyclops 3 times along the way

      • 3 weeks ago

        >fight that same bandit cyclops 3 times
        so there are giant monsters in the overworld now...

        that alone makes it better than the first game

    • 3 weeks ago

      Fighting things is fun, fighting something the same way the fiftieth time is not fun.

      • 3 weeks ago

        you cant switch vocations in dd2?

        cause you are meant to max out all vocations in that game

        • 3 weeks ago

          Vocation switching starts you off with an unfun basic kit, it takes takes hours to level a new vocation to max, and the only long-term benefit to maxing a vocation is stat boosts that are marginal at best and useless at worse. And there's no real point getting the marginal boosts anyway because you'll be massively overleveled by the time you reach the mountains if you're the sort of person inclined to minmax.

          • 3 weeks ago

            they removed the perks from the original game?
            dd1 had class exclusive perks that you could use anywhere once you level up that class to the max
            like mage had slow falling that you could use with a archer making that megaman zero spin atack with the knife do more hits

            • 3 weeks ago

              There are still perks but they're all boring and there aren't any interesting synergies. The best perks are shit like "do slightly more damage on weakpoints" and most of them are shit like "lantern oil takes less time to run out.

    >Can the DLC still save it?
    Potentially. Dark Arisen saved DD1. Does DD2 have anything similar to Bitterblack Isle? The whole DD1 should have just been like one big superdungeon.

    • 3 weeks ago

      Bitterblack Isle was so far away the best, most distinctive, and widely-praised part of DD1 that it's baffling how DD2 didn't double down on it.

    >Called DG shit back then

    I liked it a lot
    I think the people disappointed are those that built up some insane idea of what the second game would be
    I got more Dragon's Dogma. That's what I wanted
    I have my complaints with the game, don't get me wrong, the main one being that the loot system was very badly thought out
    But it's a very fun game

    • 3 weeks ago

      The general consensus is that 2 improves on a lot but also undoes some of the things from 1, so its a mixed bag of a game. More vocations, more enemies, more thought into enemy placement and quantity of encounters, better story, proper dungeons, dwarves and their land, more weather, the moon. DD1 was always lampooned as a game brimming with potential and we hoped 2 would fully realize it.

      • 3 weeks ago

        >more thought into enemy placement and quantity of encounters
        Did we play the same thing? You think running into the same goblins, bandits, wolves, and harpies every ten feet is "more thought into enemy placement"? The enemy placement is one of the game's biggest problems; you could cut the number of enemies in the overworld in half and improve the experience dramatically.

        • 3 weeks ago

          I meant for that list to be things we expected of 2. A DLC might add a bunch of these things into the game but its unlikely. We'll get another BBI type of place, the main game gets some QoL touch ups. A good step forward but not enough.

  13. 3 weeks ago

    i can accept that the quests are dogshit and the story is 2deep4you 16y old jap blogbarf
    But the game is too easy
    At some point, i started a new game and rushed to Volcanic Island and I was beating the mobs there at lvl 12 with starter gear

    >never even patched performance
    game's practically an abandoned early access game at full price

    i had a decent amount of fun with it, granted it was mostly from seeing two inbred morons together that you wouldn't otherwise doing dumb shit.

    so much for dragons smegma 2 huh
    Elden Ring did everything including dragons better.
    Remember when Dragons semgma devs were mocking Elden Ring by saying they believe boss fights should be more than you just fighting a monsters ankles? They were so confident and they still failed lmao

    The original was overhyped tbh

    • 3 weeks ago

      i played it for the first time last year and loved it.

  20. 3 weeks ago

    It has a great base but the content isn't there.
    What good is having a great battle system when i'm going to fight the same shit in the first 5 hours and last 5 hours.

  21. 3 weeks ago

    I never even finished it, just like I did with the first game but I at least got much further in DD2. The fighting is great, but frick everything else about the game. So I'll just stick with monster hunter.

    The pawn system is a cool and endearing feature.
