    do you guys think dragons dogma will be able to hold a candle to dark souls?

    now this is not a topic of what game will be better or a versus this game and that kind of thing. I'm just asking if you think dragon's dogma will have the same depth and same challenge as dark souls. I've heard bloggers say dragons dogma is a game that combins skyrim and dark souls into one game. If thats true then i think it will be epic.

    However, i know you guys are the dark souls pros and wanted your opinion on the matter. Do you really think dragons dogma will have any resembalnce to dark soul's gameplay? or is that claim just a marketing scheme to draw the souls and skyrim fans into getting dragons dogma?

    Probably belongs in off topic. Dont worry a mod wil move it if it does.

    I think Dragons Dogma will be more like Skyrim. Its open world and wants to appeal to a larger market so there will be a lot less difficulty.

    Well from what ive heard the boss battles will be amazing. For thebigger enemies you actually climb onto them and cut at their vital parts rather than chiping at their feet. Itll make a nice change. I just hope they implement a decent balance system.

    I do like the whole Idea about your pawn/companion/friend running with you, and that you can send him/her to the world of someone else and he/she will earn experience from helping someone else happy I do hope you get skills like elemental stuffs as fireball, Shockwaves and icbolts though happy

    I think the mage class will be a fairly generic (not that I mean to say boring) mage. Itl have the classic upgrade paths although I do hope they do some new, interesting stuff.
    The pawns are a good idea. Especially if they can talk about the world. I know they can give you hints but if they can talk about you rachievements and stuff id love it. One of my fave parts about Oblivion and skyrim is actually listening to the common folk talk about the stuff you;ve done.

    No. I think it will be a decent game but nothing more.

    Im sure that it wont surpass DS or Skyrim in my eyes...its all just a matter of opinion though.

    Im definetely giving the demo a go, it seems interesting happy
    The boss battles is really what attracts me the most, same as DkS.

    And since I can't afford to buy me a decent laptop for Diablo III, I might get this instead.
