Surviving the First Few Hours of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

Push Square: "As you may already know, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is actually a re-release of last year's Dragon's Dogma. While there’s no doubt that veteran players will be returning to Gransys in order to tackle the daunting expansion from which the re-release gets its name, we thought we’d take the time to jot down a few tips for the fresh-faced newcomers who know nothing about the daunting task that lies ahead." (Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, PS3)

I loved this game and hav been waiting forever for it. Ironically, I started dark souls a couple weeks ago and I am hooked. Cant wait to get back to dragoms dogma though. Everyone os saying that they built the expansion to be a lot like dark souls.

Starting over (stays and abilities) on hard mode is harder then the soul series

I bought a few days ago Dragons Dogma DA and Dark souls PTD
I started Dark Souls first and then played the beginning of Dragons Dogma just to see what its like..
is there no dodge in Dragons Dogma?

Fighters parry, mages float, assassins flip and parry, warriors absorb dmg.

I'm finding DD:DA in hardmode pretty difficult as well but mainly because I'm being lazy, lol. I knew better than to be lazy playing Souls games. Another reason is the DA content has added a little 'cheap' for my whine. Getting one shotted by so many creatures at lvl 150 w/ endgame gear is hilariously frustrating... The dungeon design is also pretty fun. It's a little deceptive.

I'd love to progress in this game but every time I try to play it, it lags and jitters. I'm thinking I'm suffering from HDD issues :(

No, it was the patch. The fps became higher but for some odd reason it pauses/lags from time to time.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   572d ago
That might be true, but I encountered the same issue with Ni no kuni and Infamous 2. I'm pretty sure my HDD is acting up. (I have infamous 2 downloaded onto my HDD and NiNoKuni is disc-based, both had these issues too meaning it can't be my laser and is most likely my HDD acting up whenever a write process is occuring.)

Ah, then for you it might be your HDD. Hope you can back it up before it kills itself with all your data. Time to upload all your save files to the cloud.

That depends on how much space you have left on your HDD when you get down to say 10GB on a 120GB HDD everything starts to slow. I completely filled my HDD once and the borderlands DLC practically became a slideshow in the Mad Moxie tournaments.
