    Can somebody explain my brainlet self what the fuck was the plot of Dragon’s Dogma? Heard from some Ganker anon that it was about Nietzscheism.

  3. Eh, not really.

    I could go on, that’s just combat. The stamina and weight system is shit, fast travel is shit, sodequests are garbage, plot is nonexistent with main quests that feel like they have nothing to do with each other, world is empty and really boring (green forests everywhere), characters are underused, etc.

    Really, there’s not much to like about the game. It doesn’t do anything well, or different.

      True. Though Fighter and Warrior do get invulnerability moves. Mages get fucked though, but they get a broken spell in later levels
      >only 3 skill slots per weapon
      For Primary and secondary, unless you’re a magic user then you get 6. Only Warrior is gimped with 3 total
      >most skills are useless
      They’re situational and can bring variety to playstyles. But some are better at just doing straight damage
      >constantly keep fighting air thanks to no lock-on
      Magic gets lock-on. Bows need to aim, however. And melee has to do it the ol’ fashioned way. Kind of getting some of it’s Monster Hunter DNA here
      >Fighting is either you deal damage and he can’t do anything or you get damaged and can’t do anything – thanks to no cancel, no dodge, and useless shields
      Depends on the enemy. Wyverns are a game similar to MH again where you fight around it’s moveset until a wide opening from attacking it’s heart sends it reeling on the ground
      >pure magic builds are tedious and unviable
      In the beginning, but magic gets busted later on. Especially if you minmax for it. Holy Focused Bolt is busted
      >pawns won’t give you enchantments half the time
      Use Pawn controls and then they will. But their spell can be interrupted depending on their knowledge and training
      >no enemy variety
      I’ll give you that
      >healing pauses the action, no fast select
      This is fixed in the Switch edition. But I suppose the downside to healing in combat is ruining the flow. Attempt to better your encounters so the combat doesn’t get ruined

      >"magick builds being unviable" lmao

      imagine getting this FILTERED holy shit

  4. I tried to like it but the game crashed constantly and it felt like I didn’t have a direction really. The game crashing on me really drained all the motivation I had to continue though.

  5. You cant compliment or like a videogame.
    a thread wont survive for long if you do that anon.

    you must be argumentative and be low effort.

  6. havent played in a long time but i wanna do magick archer. How long do i have to play sorcerer before i can be in a good enough standing to play MA to endgame?

    Reply
      • did sorcerer for 1-10, warrior to 30, now im doing assassin to like ~45 and then imma go sorcerer for a maybe a good 20 and then magick archer for the rest. It’s kinda fun cause it lets you unlock all the passives and keeps things interesting anyway.

  7. Ikr, as soon as I saw the dreadful elden ring footage I bought dragon’s dogma on steam and I’ve been playing it for a bit now, really enjoying it tbh, why didn’t Ganker tell me about it? All the wasted years… Welp at least I can still go back to dark souls 2.
