This game is my biggest disappointment of the year so far. So overhyped.

just_looken14d ago

they took there first game went ctrl c then to a bluray disc hit ctrl v.

Everything even how the environment's were handled is like the first one from over 10 years ago its crazy but this one you get to pay for a 2nd save game so that was there next gen advancement for the series.

It came it went no one is still talking about it in the main spotlight anymore not even the sales of the microtransactions.

bigfish14d ago

Most games come and go, it’s sold 2.5M in its first ten days , not sure about current sales figures. It safe to say it sold well and should have turned over a profit for capcom. Hope there isn’t as big a wait for dragons dogma 3

@bigfish

Not talking about sales i am talking about every medium to big influencer talking about the game along with free codes being tossed out for good pr then the drama around mt's followed buy the save file deal then the performance/game length

3 weeks later at most hay bails its like it fell off a cliff

Couldn't get into the 1st one and I knew this would be the same so decided not to get it

RhinoGamer8813d ago

I enjoyed DD2, but the new game+ blows. Same formula as other games, repeat all the finished missions with your accumulated weapons/skills. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

NotoriousWhiz13d ago

Is.... that not how new game+ normally works?

phoenixwing13d ago

I bought rise of ronin instead and can't recommend RoR enough. It's my game of the year.

jznrpg13d ago

I’ve seen a few people here says great things about it. I am playing it next after I finish getting the plat for Stellar Blade in a day or 2. After that Trails of Daybreak!

phoenixwing13d ago

If you find RoR too hard at the beginning choose a different difficulty. Also items help alot like poison coatings.

DustMan12d ago

Love how all the tests are done on a freaking 4090....why not a more practical card to truly show what impact it's had on cards people haven't recently dropped 2k on.

Dragon's Dogma 2 | Update adds 120Hz mode, additional graphic options, more QoL fixes

Applied for all versions [PC, PS5, X|S].

• Frame rates in areas with a lot of NPCs, such as town centers, should be improved.

• In addition, turning the graphics settings to low should further improve frame rates.

• Players on Steam can achieve the same results from changing their graphics settings.

• Fixing issues around CPU overload in certain situations.

• If your monitor supports 120Hz output, turning this on may make the game display more smoothly. This setting does not guarantee 120 fps.

• Adding function to sell items from the storage menu.

• Increasing the maximum number of items of one kind that can be put in storage from 99 to 999.

• Miscellaneous bug fixes.

Many other QoL improvements.

Please follow the link for all patch notes.

It’s on my list of games to play but it will be a while before I get to it. Hopefully by then performance and such is improved further

isarai16d ago

Oh noice! This'll be a nice little wrap up when i finally get back to it to finish it. Adult life man 😅 really doesn't leave much time or energy for fun

Psychonaut8516d ago

I feel that. When we were kids we had all the time and no money. Now we have some money, but no time. 😂

VincentCastle13d ago

It's on consoles and pc.
I played it on PS5 a bit with the 120hz enabled abd it's definitely quicker in cities and the fields.

Capcom kind of fumbled with this game.
This could have been GOTY 2024 but no.
