CVG: Capcom's latest takes a few cues from the West.
Looks good. I am glad that Capcom has decide to try this open word approach. There is a lot they can do to defferenciate themselves from the west, but it is ovious that RPG fans in the west prefer the more immersive and complex open word and realtime combat, which Capcom should be really good at. Can't wait to see what they come up with.
Do not know where all the disagrees are coming from, but I am also interested in this game I like it's style of not trying to be like any other rpg and just aiming to be fun and rewarding to a new audience.
I'm interested in this but after what happened with Marvel vs Capcom 3, I'm going to wait for an "ultimate" version, hopefully with some multiplayer and if that doesn't happen, I'll wait for a price drop because I am still mad. >:(
Capcom is different when it comes to fighting games. I highly doubt there will be a ultimate edition of this or Asura's Wrath the game will just be the game
They did something similar to UMvsC3 to Dead Rising so I'm going to be careful around them.
This is not a JRPG! It's a WESTERN style RPG from Capcom!! Which looks like Dragon Age, this is in NO way ambitious on Capcom's part! Dragon's Dogma is an attempt by Capcom to please the western market, which is something Capcom shouldn't be concerned with!! This continued approach by them, will eventually be the company's downfall!!
You should try playing the game befor crying
so monster hunter is also a western style rpg from capcom :s
Jrpg means Japanese rpg. So just cuz it doesn't have flamboyant pink haired men it's not a jrpg?
SWEET FUCKING GOD capcom SAID THIS WAS NOT AN RPG. They said it. How can they make this more clear for moron sites like this one? PERIOD ITS AN ACTION ADVENTURE GAME with rpg elements. IVE SEEN THIS THING AN RPG IT AINT You admit this is an rpg, then all zeldas are, okami is, ect
RPG or not, this game looks fantastic! I hope this game turns out good. It has the potential to become a HUGE time sucker for me!
if only monster hunter can look like that.
So, since it seems to be a point of contention, I think some sort of official definition of what a JRPG is should be decided and agreed upon. There are those who believe that an RPG created by a Japanese developer is a JRPG. In the most literal sense, they are correct. There are others, like myself, who believe that an RPG which adheres to certain... criteria... is considered a JRPG. For us, there's a particular "style" the game must be a part of. Which of these is correct? Obviously, I lean toward the latter definition; it would exclude games like Demon's/Dark Souls, which have considerably more in common with Fallout and Fable than Final Fantasy and Tales. At the same time, though, there's no denying that these games are, by their very origin, Japanese. On topic: if they say it's not an RPG, then it's not an RPG. I'm not surprised to see that CVG, however, would completely ignore that.
Last time i checked this game wasn't an RPG at all.
