capcom has played it and theyve said and I quote

"the game is not an rpg"

So what if Capcom said it wasn't, it clearly is. It's an action RPG just like Dark Souls or Amalur. It has character progression, different sets of armor and character types. That makes it an RPG.

So your pretending you know more than capcom now?

When it clearly isnt an rpg. Not even close
The difference is dark souls or amalur have features of an rpg. This game does not.

Its an action adventure

Zelda has character progression, different sets of armor, and in reality ninja gaiden has different character types

The guy making this game also said not to worry about the new DmC game, so I don't really take the PR statements seriously.

Even if it's not an RPG, it doesn't mean that it doesn't have a progression system that has RPG elements in it. So many people may still enjoy it thinking they are playing an RPG.

I think you're trying too hard to push Capcom's statement. It doesn't change how the game plays.

A progression system is in most games when you get down too it and it really doesnt have a single rpg element

Its monster hunter without the rpg elements.

dragons dogma is not an RPG capcom have said this over and over. like c'mon stop making this comparison

I know but just like gamers most of the media is composed of morons

I'll be picking this one up, but not because I think it's this year's Dark Souls.

The game looks NOTHING like Dark Souls from the footage that I've seen. I don't even know why this comparison is being made.

Berserk2487d ago

Personally I think it has taken a lot of different things from different games. So far I have seen the game has stuff similar to Skyrim/Fallout, also Dark souls, even some more games can't remember which ones precisely. Nonetheless for me so far it seems like a day 1 game.
