Amazon has knocked ten bucks off the retail price.  Good deal considering the amount of content in the game.

Is this like a GOTY kinda thing? It comes with original Dragon's Dogma plus all the DLC?

Been on sale at least a week. I picked it up for $30 through Walmart, and looks like Target has the same price.

I didn't like the original, but really *wanted* to like it.  Been thinking about picking this up and trying again.

 

That's dumb, I know.  I still have the original.

Has it not remained this price? Got it for $30 on amazon 2 months ago.

Its been this price every time I've looked at it for a little while now.  I'm waiting for $15-20... too much to play right now.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard that the new one has a much needed "fast travel" system.  Friend of mine was so annoyed that it took so long to get from one place to the other in the vanilla. 

 

That's all the more reason to get this one; for your time and sanity.

Shouldn't that be included via free patch for the vanilla?

That's why I asked for someone to correct me if I was wrong, because I'm just going on feedback from a friend.  I've been reading about it, and from what I can tell fast travel isn't readily available until you start a NG+.  Pretty weak. 

 

Maybe I was just thinking of all the complaints that people had about the lack of fast travel, but I had thought I heard that Dark Arisen made it easier.  My bad.

If you have an original dragons dogma save your character or new character you create gets an eternal ferrystone that you can use eternally to fast travel/teleport from place to place this is available from the start no new game + needed.

And all of the DLC previous to this release.

Actually I don't think it comes with any of the DLC.  I didn't see additional notice board quests or get any of the costumes from previous DLC.

In a way, they made fast travel easier by drastically reducing the price of ferrystones. If I remember correctly, it dropped from 10k to 1k through Fournival and 20k down to 2k through the Black Cat.

Ahh, so that's what it was.  Thanks for clarifying. 

 

So picking up Dark Arisen with no previous save means no eternal stone.  Shenanigans.  Would probably be worth it to buy a used copy of the vanilla at GS to start a new game then returning within the 7 day window.

That seems to be the consensus.

Actually, not a bad idea....never saw this game in my GS though.

Could you not just download a save and use it?  (Not sure if the game saves here are protected in any way like some other games are)

Kinda similar to Monster Hunter. I really enjoyed it. Thought it was a great new IP. Shame it didn't release on PC though.
