With this and the RE6 update in December, I'll be pretty busy. Dragon's Dogma really needed a hard mode, so this is fantastic.

Nice! Shame I've been spoiled by all this PC gaming lately.
Dragon's Dogma is one of the best games this year but it is a technical mess.

Hopefully the difficulty changes actually make the night threatening for my sorcerer posse. And hopefully they nerfed Maelstrom a bit, and made the other magic a bit more potent so I actually have a reason to use the other spells.

No no no, I hope they don't, Maelstrom is glorious :D

Anyways, not that Maelstrom really mattered against the real opponents anyways, the giants and Chimeras and the like.

I think this one is more a matter of the game needed more polish and balancing. Had it baked a bit longer, I suspect hard mode would have already been in there.

I remember both had different problems. I think 360 has tearing and PS3 has low framerate. But they are still playable and really fun.

Yup, as usual, pick your poison. I went for the PS3 version. Screen tearing grates on my nerves hard.

360. Install to HDD for better load times and overall performance. Screen tearing is minimal too, btw.

That's part of the reason the game is so amazing, and deserves everyone's support. It's Capcom's first attempt at an open world action RPG. They've already dramatically surpassed every other contender in terms of combat and gameplay. If people actually support this and let it grow into a real franchise, it will only help the genre get better. People don't need to nitpick about FPS, the game is awesome.

Ive been waiting for a sale for this for so long im not giving into buying it now. When it hits the 29.99 sweet spot i will plunge, same for RE 6. But just out of principal now i am not buying it until it drops. Not everyone can be up at 3am to snag a limited 10$ copy.

Could this Time Attack mode be explained a little more, because my Japanese is a little rusty.

Are we talking an arena with waves of enemies or a mode to speed run through the game?

If I remember correctly, this was one of the few multi-plats that was better on the PS3.

*edit* forgot about the advantage of the installs. Yep.

Here's hoping that Hard mode is actually hard.

360 is the way to go unless you like >20 fps whenever there's action on the screen.

On PS3 you can take pictures and load them on a USB stick easily. On 360, I think you have to upload them to Facebook.

When does NG+ ever incur an increase in difficulty? I thought the whole point of a NG+, as evidenced by classics like Chrono Trigger and newer games like Xenoblade, is that NG+ is intended to make you feel like an uber-badass.

Anyway, my fiancee has been waiting for this and will be pleased by the news. I can't wait to see her blow through the speed run mode - she has this freaking game memorized.

haha, I wasn't really intending to nitpick. It's one of the few games that I've gotten a platinum in and by far the most memorable title released this year. Definitely my favorite title to come out this year on consoles. I'll be incredibly upset of it doesn't get any GOTY awards.

There's no one right way to do NG+. Plenty of games involve a difficulty increase, plenty don't.

In the case of DD they miscalculated as it's closer to Dark Souls than Chrono Trigger. Or, just as likely IMO they didn't have time to actually properly balance and test a higher difficulty. Capcom has been rushing games out left and right due to their rolling financial crisis.

There's a wrong way to do it - the Dragon's Dogma way. Unless it was their goal to bore the living **** outa me. Really good game until that point though.

The problem with DD's difficulty lies more with its leveling system, tbh. Even if they 'fixed' NG+ the problems will persist until they take a look at how stats scale with xp.
