I gave in. I exchanged my copy of Starhawk I haven't opened yet for Dragons Dogma.

Is it true there's no fast travel in this game?


I have yet to play the game but from what I understand yes and no. There is no unlimited at-will fast travel like Skyrim or other large world RPG's. There is a way to fast travel but from what I've heard you have to pay gold to do it and it's so expensive that it's not worth it.

I always have to laugh at the people who complain about there being no fast travel system or the difficulty... so the game doesn't hold your hand, go play something that does.

Friend of mine gave me Syndicate, who said it sucked... he was right, so I returned it and got Dragon's Dogma for $20 ($40 total), at GameStop's sale, and haven't been disappointed since. Lack of a traditional fast travel system is fine by me 'cuz I never pass up a fight since the combat is so fun, great graphics and animation, well realized and populated world, awesome story and the deep pawn system has me hooked.

This is one game I would have gladly paid full price for... its truly a breath of fresh air after Skyrim.

But hey, to those that complain about it... just a heads up, maybe you should try Skyrim. That game kind of holds your hand with its fast travel, adjustable difficulty and ability to control night/day cycles.

Late in the game you will gain access to a port crystal which will let you ferrystone to wherever you drop it. After you beat the game and start a new one, you can buy them for 200k gold each up to a max of 10. Basically you can fast travel to all the key spots once you've worked for it, the way it should be IMO. Too many games like Skyrim get boring fast because you just fast travel everywhere you've been instead of enjoying the journey. This game is just perfectly balanced enough that you don't really need it right away, kind of like how Oblivion was with the castle being at a centralized location.

From what I've heard, Gamestop will never price match.

I rarely even spend $20 on a game anymore (Borderlands 2 Loot Chest aside :D), but from the sound of it, this will be one I'll drop $20 on when it gets there...hopefully by Black Friday if not early next year or sometime. Sucks Gamestop is still pimping this one used at $54.99, I have plenty of credit there and a 20% off coupon they sent me for my birthday, but that doesn't get it down to where I want.

to Jodou who wishes for a hard mode, did you try any of the DLC? There is a ton of it, aren't some of them extra quests and challenges? I figured they would make something hard for end game....

The only DLC I saw was more notice board quests, which I believe are just more useless tasks of killing/collecting X of Y. Might be great for leveling, but as for a challenge -- I shit on everything in the game no problem lol. There is an endgame raid boss, which requires large chunks of able players in the community to down. He's not hard if you have a good strat but it's asynchronous gameplay so you have to survive 10 minute rounds with him to get credit when he does die. I've killed him offline and online, so as far as challenge goes I've beat the game.

A hard mode would be more for me to start all over again because I'd like a new challenge.

This is one of those rare games I paid $60 for and haven't regretted it. I've sank over 80 hours into this one. Definitely worth $40!

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Yes, it's the only boss you can kill as a community online as I stated. You'd have to specifically turn off online in order to face him offline, but he drops less gear doing that. It typically takes two days to kill him online but you are rewarded based on participation, so your loot will sit there until you pick it up after he dies.

What does that have to do with his question about adding something to Dragon's Dogma to get the $10 back?

Finally! I was just thinking about this (again) today and how it hasn't been on sale anywhere. Going to go grab it!

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

It's MSRP is still 60 dollars, it was just a sale at Best Buy which was price matched at amazon.

So if you want it for 40, I'd suggest picking it up asap. The game is wonderful, hope you get it soon.
