OXM: Capcom's unexpectedly impressive RPG Dragon's Dogma has now arrived for review. You probably won't be surprised to hear that Matt's doing it, having already sunk an unhealthy number of hours into the preview code, and he's got a lot to say.
Hardly unexpected , you guys of the media just wanted to ignore the game at first when it looked great from the very first few trailers .
looking good and actually being good are two different things.
It isnt an rpg and it doesnt look good
I knew before I clicked on this that you would be here saying this very thing. I'm curious what your definition of RPG is, because I've been watching videos on gameplay and mechanics all day and it sure looks like an RPG to me. Looks great. Can't wait.
You know it actually has to have pure rpg features which this doesnt. Capcom is smart enough to know it isnt
Thanks for not explaining yourself at all. Pure RPG features? Character creation & customization, classes & jobs, skills to level up, loot to... ummm... loot, a world to explore, a party to outfit...? Capcom doesn't call it an RPG outright, which is odd to me, but every article and video I've seen on the game, where people are actually playing it, calls it an RPG. I guess it's too much to ask to want your definition of an RPG, but I wonder if any game qualifies in your opinion.
"Pure rpg features" sounds like crazy double talk to me. He probably wouldn't know an RPG if the nameless one slapped him round the face.
