Dragon's Dogma update introduces save corruption bug

If you've picked up the expandalone Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen or are still bashing away at the original Dragon's Dogma, whoa there, Nelly! Hold up a second! A recent patch has introduced a save data corruption bug to both games, Capcom warns, so you'll want to back up your saves somewhere safe until it's fixed. I'd advise simply stopping playing for now to be safe and avoid the hassle, but what do I know?

Dragon's Dogma Hard & Speedrun modes hit next week

Capcom announced back in September that it planned to patch a Hard Mode and Speedrun Mode into Dragon's Dogma, then went awfully quiet on the subject. Dukes of Difficulty, be cool, as the title update is now slated to launch next week with the challenge you crave so.

Capcom says DmC: Devil May Cry feels like it's 60 FPS (but it isn't)

DmC: Devil May Cry is going to be locked at 30 frames per second on consoles, a shift from DMC4's buttery 60 fps. But Capcom has told fans it will still look silky-smooth, thanks to some animation and control trickery that fools your eyes into feeling like it's seeing more frames than it is.

Dragon's Dogma getting expansion, hard and speedrun modes

Capcom recently added an easy mode to Dragon's Dogma, but if you wished for the opposite, you're in luck. In a bumper Dogma-o-rama at the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom announced that not only is the action-RPG getting a Hard Mode for free, a title update will also add a special Speedrun Mode. Oh, and it's making an expansion named Dark Arisen, which we don't know much about.

We were certainly pleased with Dragon's Dogma in our review, and evidently that opinion was common enough for developer and publisher Capcom to commit to turning its console action-RPG into "a major franchise."

Weekend Confirmed 115 - E3 2012 predictions, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Dragon's Dogma

E3 predictions! You love 'em! You hate 'em! You hate loving them? Whatever the case, The two Jeffs, and Insomniac's James Stevenson join Garnett to offer up plenty of forum fodder in anticipation of the big event next week. The crew tackles the big three--Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo--in the order of their respective press conferences. Does Xbox as a living room entertainment gateway give anyone goose bumps? Can Sony shake the Vita bottle hard enough to make a genie finally appear? Can Nintendo successfully answer "What would Mario do?" Of course, there's also time to talk some about the design plans for refining Diablo 3, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and Dragon's Dogma before wrapping it up with Finishing Moves.

Dragon's Dogma review

Dragon's Dogma review

Combine the open-world exploration of Skyrim, the lightning-quick combat of Kingdoms of Amalur, and the player-punishing difficulty of Dark Souls, and you've got Dragon's Dogma...sort of. While it does borrow from recent favorites in the genre, Capcom's answer to the action-RPG also takes a stab at some original ideas. A steep learning curve and lack of polish occasionally sully the experience, but fans of the style who've already exhausted the aforementioned titles will find more than enough here to lure them in for a play-through or two.

Capcom 're-evaluating' on-disc DLC

Capcom 're-evaluating' on-disc DLC

The idea that we don't own games we buy, merely a license to use them, is a contentious one. On-disc 'downloadable content,' where the data for DLC is included on the disc but we must pay to unlock it, draws attention to this in an ugly way, and is rarely popular. Capcom's a frequent instigator here, but now the publisher's taking a look at on-disc DLC and "re-evaluating" its stance.
