Dragon's Dogma II (PC, PS5, XSX/S) - 3/22/24

Okay, after reading some previews on this game, I am pretty excited to check it out though I never tried the original game. Looks to be huge and a big hit. Like this year's version of Baldur's Gate 3.



There is a "demo" up in the PS Store now (and I assume available for PC and XSX as well) that allows you to create your character in advance of the game release.

I just got the first one's enhanced version for $4.79 in anticipation of this one. I'll play it while waiting for this one to go on sale.

Decker, is this the demo? It was the only thing that was free and it says demo, but character creator and storage doesn’t sound like a game demo…

Yes, that's what it is, and what I said it was. Just a character creator. Give you a bit of a head start so you can jump right in and play Thursday night.

It really does, right? Looks like a ton of fun too.
Review embargo lifts early tomorrow morning. I'll probably pre-order after that.
Not sure about the bonuses in the Deluxe Edition, but it's only $10 more, so I might just do it for the heck of it. The pre-order weapon set (available for both the Standard and Deluxe Editions) does look like a substantial bonus.

Is this type of game akin to the Final Fantasy series? More specifically the newer remakes like 7.

Maybe with combat. But that is a very linear JRPG, while this is the polar opposite when it comes to the RPG stuff -- this is about as non-linear as this sort of game can get. Or so it seems.

Ok. Is there a game, that I’ve played that you know of that is similar to this? I did the creator thing. It took like 5 minutes to create Arisen character and his pawn.

Never played them. Thanks though. I just don’t want to get Elden Ringed again.

Similar to The Witcher 3?

You should check out the original it's usually on sale and will give you a good idea what kind of game it is.

I just broke 100 hours in Infinite Wealth and now this is launching. Do I play this, Rebirth, or Unicorn Overlord next?

I really liked the first one, and was pleasantly surprised when the sequel was announced.

And the PS Store never updates this early. Usually it's between 9 and 10AM PT, I think.
