F2P Dragon's Dogma Quest coming to Vita December 19

Dragon's Dogma Quest was originally announced as a Vita game. Perhaps it isn't surprising that the free-to-play, 2D, online-only RPG ended up coming to iOS (in Japan) much sooner. Still, a Vita version is still in the works....

Jimquisition: Downloadable Discontent
by Jim Sterling

You don't have to hate downloadable content to avoid ever buying the stuff. Even heartfelt fans of the concept can be thoroughly turned off, and it's all thanks to the idiots trying to sell it.

Your old pal Jim loves DLC, as an idea, but never buys it these days because of alienating business tactics and companies trying to push their damn luck.

Let us discuss the ways in which a publisher can stop even a willing customer from buying its wares.

Deep Down a ways away, not related to Dragon's Dogma

During Sony's PlayStation 4 reveal event, Capcom showed off Deep Down, a game slated for PS4 and running on Capcom's next-gen engine, codenamed "Panta Rhei." The game looks positively medieval, not too dissimilar from Capcom ...

Dragon's Dogma Quest announced as a free-to-play Vita RPG

When Capcom said that Dragon's Dogma was a valuable franchise, I assumed they planned on following it up with a carefully constructed sequel, addressing the concerns of the original. Well, maybe that will happen eventually, b...

Game music on guitar like you've never heard before
by Jayson Napolitano

Top honors for this month's Note Worthy go to a new guitar duo, The Altered Beasts, who you may recognize as the guitar players from the best game music cover band out there, The OneUps. The two team up for their debut album, Transfiguration, bringing smooth and laid-back guitar arrangements of some of the best tracks from across gaming. This one is definitely a must-have.

We've also got the powerful BioShock Infinite and the dark fantasy Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, along with Austin Wintory's Monaco, Star Command, and Soul Sacrifice, among others. Check out below and enjoy streaming music samples while you read!

Review: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen photo
Review: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
by Chris Carter

I thought Jim was spot on with his review of the original Dragon's Dogma. It had grand ideas, but in many areas, it failed to execute them, and was marred by some fairly glaring design choices. With a full sequel, Capcom could really craft something special and fix a lot of the issues the original suffered from.

For now, you'll have to deal with Dark Arisen, an expansion and semi-update for the game that essentially uses the exact same shell of the original. To be clear, this is not the sequel you've been waiting for -- though it is a small step in the right direction.

New releases: Don't Starve will be the end of you photo
New releases: Don't Starve will be the end of you
by Fraser Brown

I'm a bit late with this week's new releases, as I'm still recovering from my wee sister's wedding, where I wracked up an ungodly bar bill. Your sympathy and donations will be greatly appreciated. 

It's a busy week, and I had a hard time deciding which upcoming title made me tingle the most. In the end, however, it's got to be Don't Starve. I've been playing the beta for months, and it's stolen my heart (and sanity). I've turned pig-men into slaves, built towns only for them to be destroyed by hellish monsters, and been driven to the brink of insanity by hunger and fear. I love it.

Also launching this week is StarDrive, a rather lovely 4X space strategy game, the beta of which has already swallowed up a good chunk of my time; zombies continue to be a menace to people living in paradise in Dead Island: Riptide; Star Trek is boldly going where lots of Star Trek games have gone before by not looking like it's very good; Monaco has chums performing heists together, which I can totally get behind; and Dragon's Dogma gets some DLC/ a re-release in the form of Dark Arisen.

Splashing out on anything this week?

GDC: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen goes the extra mile photo
GDC: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen goes the extra mile
by Alessandro Fillari

Last year’s release of Dragon’s Dogma turned a lot of heads with its unique take on fantasy action/RPGs. Capcom’s first foray into the open-world genre surprised many with its version of the classic party member mechanic along with its fast-paced combat and exploration. While it didn’t exactly set the world on fire, it still garnered itself a loyal and dedicated following.

Now, Capcom is back with more Dragon’s Dogma with the release of Dark Arisen. Offering a surprisingly massive amount of new content, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen gives returning players a worthy challenge, but also proves itself as the definitive Dragon’s Dogma experience.
