RadarPlays - Dragon's Dogma

Shares

Halt, adventurer! Before thou progresseth any furthereth, thou shalt knowesteth that goblins don't like fire. At least, that's what our Pawns in Dragon's Dogma told us, right before we obliterated a small army of the things. Watch as Ryan, Henry, and Lucas hop into Capcom's action adventure RPG to get their fantasy fix.

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!

    Didn't someone say that they fixed some of the annoyances in the new disc release Dark Arisen. Oh yeah the ending got me you must finish.
  • BladedFalcon - June 20, 2013 11:15 a.m.

    Yeah, the ending was pretty trippy, and showed me that even with the story, the game had REALLY great ideas for it... It just had a terrible pacing and mid-game story XD I mean, basically, everything that has to do directly with the dragon and the arisen itself is fantastic, the rest... ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    2nd play through I went "the fuck." I love the game it's not perfect but damn good job for changing things up. Plus I can enjoy in game music during combat.

    ...Speaking of music... Dat intro song *drools* I know it's cheesy as fuck, but I don't care, i love it XD

    Most older generations in Kentucky speak with a blending of simple words. The newer generations speak normally with a "northern" accent. You guys had a good Louisiana/Colonial accent going on though lol. Bravo to that.

    I absolutely adored this game and I really hope Capcom makes a sequel. too bad it seems like it was a sleeper/cult hit, so I doubt that will happen. In fact I may make another trip into the game with my main Pawn Mongo.

    One of the best Radar Plays yet! The accents and voices were a lot of fun.

    Henry stole the show
  • winner2 - June 19, 2013 8:18 p.m.

    Henry that was glorious, truly glorious

    DAT ACCENTS Ah Dragons Dogma, as described by Cooper in RadioRadar as "Capcom trying to get white people to like Monster Hunter" The games great, and its still pushing itself in its own direction, i agree with Bladedfalcon that it was underrated
  • GR HollanderCooper - June 19, 2013 8:39 p.m.

    That gem is actually a Henry Gilbert one that I often steal.
  • BladedFalcon - June 20, 2013 11:12 a.m.

    Yeah, pretty sure I've heard Henry say that like 5 times in different podcasts and episodes :P also, pretty sure the combat system and open world here is better than what you see in Monster Hunter. Yeah, that's right, I said it. Monster Hunter fans can come at me if they want!
  • BladedFalcon - June 19, 2013 6:04 p.m.

    Heh, you guys sure did have fun with those accents, eh? XD Anyway, awesome game, definitely the most underrated game of 2012 IMO. I feel like most people over-exagerated the annoyance of the pawn dialog, which isn't that bad AND can be toned down to a very occasional quip very early in the game. In return you got one of the most original, ambitious action RPGs of this generation. Allowing for a ton of customization and different play-styles, and an awesome enemy selection and AI assigned for them. (I still remember the slack jaw I got when fighting a troll for the first time... and how when I climbed his limbs, he swatted me down, and if I held myself on his back, he would jump-slam me down into the ground, crushing me.) So yes, thank you guys for showing this game again! if even one extra person gives this game a try because of this video, then I'd say it's mission accomplished :D
  • ZeroPotential - June 19, 2013 6:40 p.m.

    Consider me that one person then, I always see this game real cheap but with the aformentioned summer lull, now's the best time to pick it up :D
  • BladedFalcon - June 19, 2013 7:29 p.m.

    Yay! Just try being a bit patient with it, don't expect too much of the story, and I'm confident that you won't regret it (:
  • ParagonT - June 20, 2013 8:07 a.m.

    Harpies! Goblins! Even after I sat them down and gave them a hefty cup of ST**, the shield bashing started to get to me as well. *twitch* I was the Warrior vocation, the slowest, most difficult vocation I think exists.
  • BladedFalcon - June 20, 2013 11:10 a.m.

    Yeeeeah... bad choice, if you ask me, honestly :P I started as a knight, but then switched to assassin, then moved to ranger, and then tried strider and magic archer. And IMO, the strider is the most fun class of them all (because of all their agility and climbing perks) while the assassin is the most versatile, and the ranger is the most powerful to the point of being borderline broken. I mean, obviously, each class bring their own thing and charm, but the strider class specializes in playing best with what Imao is one of the most original, fun features of the game, which is the monster climbing XD I heard the warrior can become powerful enough to one shot even bosses with one well placed attack... which takes forever to charge. So I can see them being useful I suppose, but that has NEVER been my favorite approach to any game XD I much prefer fast but fragile, over slow but sturdy and powerful.

    Good job playing, you got me wanting to play it, I'll be getting the Dark Arisen version though, so thank you :)
  • PlainLikeVanilla - June 19, 2013 5:22 p.m.

    This was great just because of Henry doing impersonations. You don't need to put a game under it just have Henry.
