[t]http://cdn2.dualshockers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Dragons-Crown-Sold.jpg[/t] [quote]I just spent a couple hours checking Amazon Japan, Tsutaya, Media Land, Yodabashi Camera, Super Potato, 7Net, Lawson, Net Off, Jbook, Happinet, Sofmap and quite a few smaller local retailers. The only ones of the bunch that have the game available for immediate shipping are Yodabashi Camera and Happinet. At Yodabashi they have only the PS Vita version available, while Happinet only has the PS3 version. Both have a “low stock” notice. The first shipping batch of the game is sold out everywhere else.[/quote] [url]http://www.dualshockers.com/2013/07/28/dragons-crown-sells-out-almost-everywhere-in-japan/[/url] Japanese release was July 25th, America is August 6th, Europe TBA. Vita and PS3 exclusive. Some other relevant fluff. [QUOTE=Gameinformer]The many arcade brawlers of the ‘80s and ‘90s offer fun but concise cooperative adventures uniquely suited to popping in quarters for a quick playthrough. Before I began playing, I worried Dragon’s Crown might be equally brief, and less appropriate for modern platforms. My concern was unwarranted. Dragon’s Crown is a lengthy, rich adventure filled with enough quests to complete and skills to unlock to keep a player busy for dozens of hours. Its breathtaking art style made me stop more than once just to admire the backgrounds, and the gameplay is simple and hard to put down. Even with some structural missteps, I’m amazed how much I’m still enjoying the game with over 30 hours on the clock.[/QUOTE] [url]http://www.gameinformer.com/games/dragons_crown/b/playstation_vita/archive/2013/07/31/a-massive-adventure-fueled-by-nostalgia.aspx[/url] [QUOTE=IGN]Playing through Dragon’s Crown brought back a torrent of memories for me. It harkens back to the days when side-scrolling beat-‘em-ups like Double Dragon, Final Fight, and Golden Axe ruled the arcades, an era of gaming when frenetic pacing took a front seat to story, art, or sound, and when pure gameplay was king. Of course, Dragon’s Crown's exceptionally beautiful graphics and atmospheric soundtrack prove that the two priorities aren’t mutually exclusive, but the essence of this game doesn’t hinge on frills and aesthetics. It instead relies on enjoyable action, a rewarding experience system, and an addictive loot scheme, gameplay-centric features that overshadow everything around them.[/QUOTE] [url]http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/07/31/dragons-crown-review[/url] [QUOTE=Kotaku]When I look at Dragon's Crown now, I see a worthy successor to the games that first brought arcade action into the realm of role-playing. I see countless hours filled with chaotic dungeon-crawling, overcoming repetition through an endless parade of like-minded adventurers. I see a beautiful game that's definitely worth exploring further. And yes, I see the exaggerated characters, but I don't mind them so much. If you do, best move along.

Damn I might have to check it out Its a beat em up like Dungeons n' Dragons right?
[QUOTE=weedscopes;41656102]Damn I might have to check it out Its a beat em up like Dungeons n' Dragons right?[/QUOTE] RPG beat-em-up made by Vanillaware, creators of Odin Sphere and Muramasa. Up to four players, several different classes, and apparently it's got a lotta hype and already meeting massive success. :v:

[QUOTE=Zeke129;41656180]so the artist responded by making a gay joke how classy I didn't care before because everyone in the game was half naked but now I think the artist is a complete dipshit[/QUOTE] He responded in exactly the best way he could have. Just because a joke might be offensive to some people does not mean it isn't relevant, and does NOT mean it isn't funny.
[QUOTE=Primigenes;41656462]Yeah its a really exaggerated art style [IMG]http://wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/arcadesushi.com/files/2013/03/dragon1.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/arcadesushi.com/files/2013/03/dragon6.jpg[/IMG] Only character who isn't like that is the Wizard.[/QUOTE] And the Elf.

Oh yeah I remember the whole Dragon's Crown fiasco that Jason Schreier started on Kotaku (so you know he has the peak of journalistic integrity and it totally wasn't click-bait/ making an issue out of nothing. :v: ). He didn't like the Sorceress because she has an exaggeratedly voluptuous body (most notably the breasts) and that it was sexist/misogynist. Later he even called the Sorceress a "lolicon fantasy" :v: . Oh how I love how the whole fiasco only ended up driving sales up.

Personally I find neither of them attractive, in any way, shape or form. And not "attractive" as "I want to dick that", attractive as in "I find almost every aspect of their design repusive". But you're not going to see me complaining about it like it's a social rights issue. And that's not because I'm a misogynist or part of "the patriarchy", it's because I'm not a whiny ass who can't fucking handle himself in public.
As much as I'd like to say Shreier's decision to spearhead an incredibly pathetic attack against Vanillaware was all in the interest of generating traffic, I really do think people have gotten slightly delusional about their ability to influence the industry.
