Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen trailers

Meh so free fast travels now to any part of the map? =/ Don't like that. But other than its sounding good.
Where does it say that? All I see is "free unlimited Ferrystones". And Ferrystones were barely an issue to begin with. Portcrystals were the real impediment to fast traveling everywhere, and it doesn't say anything about giving you any of those.
 
Question: Is Dragon's Dogma more grind/loot oriented ala Monster Hunter, or progress-oriented like Dark Souls?

Either way, I like this new slow/methodical 3D combat genre.

It's more awesome combat oriented like Devil May Cry. There's zero reason to grind and most of the world is open from the start.
 
I was actually going to pick up Dragon's Dogma after work today.
Bullet dodged! Might as well wait for this.
I'll buy Sleeping Dogs instead.
 
Looks awesome, it's nice to see a meaty expansion these days, will be great to play the game and expansion together when I finally get the game. How does this work if you bought some dlc for the first game? Will it be compatible since this includes the original game with some changes, or are all the original dlc (like the From a Different Sky line) built into the release?

Shame about no expansion-only option though, that's a missed opportunity.
 
It absolutely is, but it leaves those of us that already own DD hanging. I'd rather not buy the game again for $40 just to access the expansion.
I hear you, I own it as well and think there should be an option to just download the content for say, $15.00. But I love this game so much that I don't care. I'll gladly buy it again just to support it and enjoy the new content.
 
It's different. The combat is less methodical and deliberate and much more fast paced and arcade-like and has a feature where you climb larger enemies. It's also more one large open world and less series of connected areas.
Ok thanks, I will look at some youtube vids to get a better idea.
 
Well I've got £25 in my PSN wallet and haven't played the first game, plus this was recommended to me in another thread :)

Once again the lesson here is never buy a Capcom game day one

If the content really is as meaty as it seems. 15 dollars is low balling it.
 
From what I'm gathering, this is basically a relaunch of Dragon's Dogma in the same vein as the Prepare to Die/Artorias of The Abyss Edition of Dark Souls? I traded the game in a while ago and had a copy on hold at a local game store but now I think I might just wait for Dark Arisen if that's the case.

it is. just with more features.
 
April 26: PlayStation 3 both disc and digital versions, with the digital version priced at €29.99/£19.99
I am confused. Does this mean that the DLC/expansion will be 30 euros or is the main game also included in this price?

If it's the later this means i'll have to pay a lot more for something that i already have (and paid in full price). And i won't.
 
I'm annoyed that it sounds like there is no option for it to be DLC only but:

"For those who already own Dragon’s Dogma and then purchase Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, these improvements will be automatically retrofitted to their original game."

Why would they mention this if not? As if people would still play vanilla?
 
I'm starting to think Dark Arisen is a stand alone expansion... no main game included.

Edit: Guess not "All of the content from the original Dragon’s Dogma plus…". So no dlc only purchase?
 
It's kind of ridiculous if there's no expansion only dlc, and we're forced to buy this new "complete edition". I'll wait for a huge price drop if so.
 
Aww yeah! Sounds hot. I still wish they'd release a PC version but then I wouldn't be able to import my character. I'm just glad they're moving ahead with the franchise since it has a LOT of potential despite being flawed in a lot of places as well.
 
Somehow I got the impression that they are tweaking the whole campaign. Is this still the case? Any possibility for framerate/technical improvements etc.?
