Looks like "Dragon's Crown" is drawing inspiration from stuff like Capcom's version of "Dungeons & Dragons" and Sega's "Golden Axe" games. That's awesome, seeing as I'm a big fan of both of those series!

The action and movements seem really slow and in general this appears to be entirely too similar to Dungeons & Dragons, which just got a re-mastered release.  This game could definitely stand to evolve some more, though I do like the art style.

Wow this isn't cross platform? I'm starting to think that nobody cares about the Vita lol. By the way i'm selling a 3G Vita for 160 bucks if anyone is interested just PM me.

I must be getting old cause I just can't get passed the sorceress player model.  As a female its just so distasteful.  I know its supposed to be a kind of exaggerated anime art style.  It just bothers me too much and I was looking forward to this game.  I usually don't get put off by this type of thing but something about it just make me cringe.

This game is EASILY my most anticipated game this year.  I've wanted a co-op beat em up RPG for so long.

Looking very nice.

For some reason it also seems a lot easier to see what's going on during all the action than I thought it was from watching previous videos. That's a good thing.

Never happy when I see lazy circles for shadows however.

It's the little things...

Interesting looking game but nothing I would buy on release.  It really looks at best to be a $19.99 to $29.99 priced game.

@shnelle I know what you mean.  I have no aversion to stylized art or erotica, but it reaches a point where it's just an absurd distraction.  It's the same thing with certain TV shows.  A well-placed sex scene can even compliment a show when it's done correctly.  However, when it's SO cheesy and overdone that it diminishes my immersion in the story/game, it's hard to overlook.  That being said, I love hand-drawn 2D art, I appreciate a good throwback game now and then, so I'll probably pick this up.  It'd just be nice if I didn't have to explain to my fiancee that I am, in fact, in love with the genre and not just some giant manchild ogling the boobs.  I also try to remind myself that however ridiculous the argument seems, there are, in fact, very well-endowed women out there, and I suppose they deserve representation as much as any other class. *Shrug*

@xGarrettThiefX One of the original designers of the Dungeons and Dragons beat'em ups in the arcades is a designer on this game.

@CptSkyfish:

Actually, yes it should! Looks like the GameSpot staff missed a word in the game's title.

@DeViLzzz Would you buy it if it charged you a monthly fee? Or if was a yearly title that focuses on repetitive multiplayer?

@ProjektInsanity @shnelle Normally I could care less about being well endowed.  I think its the clothing, the bounciness, and the well endowment. Like I said this type of stuff doesn't usually make me bat an eye.  I think it's all of it together that's rubbing me the wrong way.  As a comparison, think of a insanely well endowed man, put him in a very skimpy G-string that doesn't cover anything, and then have him jump around so that his important bits are dangling all over the place.  Do you want to watch that while playing a video game?

@DSkinMasque I will not be buying this game unless it is in a bargain bin.  It is just not my type of game.

@ProjektInsanity You hit it right on the head.  It's not being offended.  Its just so distracting lolol.  I just keep cringing hehe.

@shnelle I get your point, although your hypothetical wouldn't really "offend" me (not that you suggested it would), as I'm very hard to offend.  I will fully admit though, that it would distract the hell out of me, and make it almost impossible to take the game seriously.  Well, at least at first...with enough time, I might just grow indifferent to it, in the same way that I come to eventually disregard a character model that I despise, if I enjoy the game.  The question is, would I really want to have to go to that ridiculous extreme?  Not really, no.
