All the reviews I read on it seemed more positive. I still want to play it though. I don't think I'll be taking it back anytime soon. Took me long enough to locate a store with both games in stock and another 20 minutes just to get a confirmation that they did have it.

It's all right, nothing special, just an okay game. Dragongard is still worth playing because it's so insane. The gameplay is monotonous, but the huge amount of crazy (and the awesome dragon) make it a memorable experience. Dragongard 2 is more like a paint by numbers JRPG with a 'hero' so unlikable you want to throw him off a bridge.

That's basically the tl;dr. Drakengard 1 is an awful Dynasty Warrior clone (save for the final battle on the ending E path) but the plot is batshit insane in a can and the characters are awful in the best ways. Drakengard 2 is a less awful Dynasty Warrior clone but the plot is pants on head retarded in a can and the characters are awful in the worst ways.

It's telling of just how awful the plot and the characters are when one of your party members is the head honcho of the antagonists of the previous game, that her objective now is exactly the same as it was in the previous game (though the motive has changed from unleashing unspeakable horrors to memory loss due to severe brain damage), and the reason why the main character has turned coat and joined her cause is solely mostly due to her T&A (the other reasons include being a dumb sap who falls for the first sob story he sees and because the leader of his former organization wants to put the retard down because he's an idiot with command over a fuck off dragon and left to his own devices will inevitably fuck something vital up royally (which he does)).

Revelations trailer leaked but was taken down, a serious WTF moment was preserved through this gif though:

Her hair covers her eyes COMPLETELY! Those boobs are ridiculous and as for the scene itself, yeah... I'm assuming a monster came when it saw dem boobs.


Video here:


That character design is atrocious. WHAT. THE. FUCK?

It's like I'm rewatching those early episodes of Aeon Flux before it's batshit insane plot kicked in and the main character was just a bumbling assassin who dies incompetently at the end of the episode.

I went to Gamestop for a sale and got 4 PS2 games for only $40. I got Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, Dragon Quest VIII, Drakengard, and Drakengard 2. Too bad a friend of mine has the PS2 right now. I'll just have to wait till she returns it then.

Why in god's name did you get Drakengard 2? The gameplay is only marginally better than its (godawful) predecessor but all the dumb shit that the game pulls ruins that completely. Hell, the WTC factor that made the first game so playable in the first place has been substituted by a completely different WTC factor (namely in how fucking retarded the protagonists are in that game).

Take the game back (or sell it somewhere else), and read this instead.

So what ever happened to Squeenix's 'Death to Mana and SaGa!' policy they announced earlier this year? Or does it only apply to the Mana series?

I understand missing the news in a huge thread with multiple pages per post, but this isn't too long yet and Lard DID post that on the very first page.

Oh, yeah, and looking more I see 16 GB thumbdrives are under $20, so as long as SE doesn't skimp in size they can probably get MORE than enough space for a dedicated thumb drive to be bundled with the game.

Nah. That was my bad. When I first heard the news, the way it was worded was that there was a solo campaign that you could clear without having to fuck around with the internet like in DQIX. What I posted simply clarified that to not be the case instead stating that you can't complete anything without first giving Squeenix extra moneys for content that not all of us are interested in. I suppose I should've checked other news sites and/or Lard's links beforehand.

Umm....I kinda implied that, yes?

You can see that she cut her hand halfway into the video while fumbling around during her performance and she wasn't exactly fazed by it. The fact that her "poem" ended in a series of mumbled grunts and her 2 minute epic struggle with a can opener, a can, and physics also kinda suggest it as well. Plus she's giving an edgy hipster bullshit performance to a crowd that's probably about 50% high as well (or at least buzzed). And if that's not enough proof than I don't know what is.
4192  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Your Favorite RPGs and Why on: September 07, 2011, 01:34:22 AM
For those who can't see it, she reads a shitty poem while struggling to open a can of expired spaghettios. Then she cuts a whole in her pants, fingers herself with a handful of pasta, and discharges on the floor. Lastly, she takes off her shirt, wipes up the mess, and exits to a room full of applause.

The best part is the fact that the camera man knows how drugged out the performer is and spends as little time as possible recording her antics over capturing the responses of the crowd. Heck, most of the video after the can-opener shenanigans consists of 'spot the lesbians'.

Also that's hole not whole.
4193  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: September 07, 2011, 12:54:00 AM
I would think this might be interesting if I didn't remember that FFXIII-2 is largely comprised of leftover scraps of art assets from FFXIII-1.

Oh, and apparently a large portion of this system is going to comprise entirely of key hunts so I wouldn't be surprised if the plot relevance for many locations consists entirely of finding keys to open the portal to the next irrelevant key hunt.

So much for a solo adventure for those of us who don't want to play an MMO.

And again, who knows how they're going to handle this outside of Japan? Knowing Squeenix, I have a feeling that players in the US won't get as lucky as they did with Monster Hunter Tri.
4195  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: September 06, 2011, 07:37:47 AM
Champions of Norrath. So now I've traded the various shades of brown, black, and red of the underground, the jumping all over the place with their 6 feet long tongues enemies, Count Bugeyedhost, and a sexy lesbian vampire for bright and sunny tropical islands, mermen, drows, and a sexy lesbian mermaid. Well, at least I can see what I'm doing when I'm not in the caves. Also the accessories FINALLY get an upgrade since the start (stacking 2 +12 Dex accessories on my Wood Elf Ranger has turned my stockpile of arrows into a goddamn hail of death for this point of the game).
4196  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest X Online: Rise of the Five Tribes on: September 06, 2011, 03:42:42 AM
It also has to do with the Wii not exactly being built with internet gaming in mind like the PS360 are. Unless Squeenix does a full, online gaming suite (ala Mario Kart Wii); which, given their effort in making use of the DSi's WPA encryption for DQIX (i.e. none), is not something I expect them to do. Besides given how DQIX was designed with Japan first and foremost with barely an afterthought given to other territories, I fully expect this game to completely fail to adjust to outside markets.

Also everybody and their brother has cracked their Wii wide open (mostly to get around that ridiculous region locking for games like Xenoblade and Fatal Frame 4). I can already see the mountains of cheaters and pirates sucking the fun out of the online experience like any other online Wii game.

And then there's the fact that Xenoblade, probably the single best console JRPG in years, has so far completely skipped over the US. And not only that game but other RPGs on Nintendo consoles have been getting skipped over as well like The Last Story and Fire Emblem DS2. The US completely missing out on DQX is too within the realm of possibility for me to get worked up for this game.

The tl;dr is the invariable mountain of Friend Codes that players are going to need to memorize, as well as phone numbers/email addresses/twitter accounts/facebook pages/ect to communicate with because DQX won't be offering much of any alternative if any at all to these things, assuming we even get it of course.
4197  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest X Online: Rise of the Five Tribes on: September 05, 2011, 06:24:03 AM
I think it has more to do with the fact that the Wii U hasn't been around that long compared to the development of the Wii version and they didn't want to scrap as much as they would've needed to in order to make use of the Wii U's capabilities.

Beyond that though, a subscription fee is understandable, but on the Wii's dinky WiFi? WTF!?

This just screams of Squeenix trying to maintain their coveted MMO position with something other than FFXIV and with new hotness over the old busted FFXI.

Picked Champions of Norrath back up. Just spent last night plowing a lava field on a tractor, hunting doohicky (a) to insert into slot (b) in said lava field, so a xenophobic wizzzzard lets me into his gaping maw, to find a little cunt and her pussies, then watch a bunch of boners fuck each other over while fucking them all over, and finally seduced a lesbian vampire with a rose like aphrodisiac.
4199  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest X coming to Wii. on: September 05, 2011, 02:22:14 AM
Welp. That was a thing. Now to wait for the translated transcript or for somebody to provide the gist of it to show up.

That's the gist of it.

Also, considering how 8 and 9 sold, there's no way it won't come here.

Then again, I said that about Last Story and Xenoblade. :/

Ok. So it's both Wii and Wii U right now. But we can expect it to require an upgrade to Wii U at some point down the line. Probably with the Chains of Prometheus or Treasures of Azla expansions.

Ninja Edit: Did anybody else notice the train rolling around in the background?

This is... Well, I'll see how the dust settles, and I'd probably be there day 1 anyway, but at least it sounds more like something designed with single player fans in mind than, say, FFXI which pretty much trolled them.

Yeah, I'm not really going to be holding my breath until it's confirmed that it's coming out here in the US.

I'd still rather have Xenoblade over this tbh.
