Dragon's Dogma, a sort of experiment in Western-style role playing game design, is proving successful for Capcom. The publisher announced today that it has shipped over one million copies of the RPG so far. As for how that translates into sales, we don't have a hard number, but we do know that it's...

Dragon's Dogma, a Japanese role-playing game with western sensibilities, seems to be doing just fine in its home country. Much better than fine, as it turns out: Dragon's Dogma has moved 302,000 units on the PS3 in Japan, while the Xbox 360 version has sold 29,000, according to Media Create. The co...

We had some issues with Dragon's Dogma. Ok, we had more than a few issues, calling it "50 or so hours of mundane drudgery" in our review. That doesn't mean our opinion is the only one that matters. There's a whole internet out there with glowing reviews. Maybe not "glowing," but certainly mor...

I have slain a dragon. I have walked the coasts of this land more times than I can count, treading upon the lives of creatures most foul. I have felled the beasts of the forest with arrows and steel and pillaged their leavings for aught. I have died, thousands of times, as have those who have adven...

Most people may not know this, but starting your day off with dragons, burning ouroboroses and cheesy, overwrought voice acting is just as important as eating a well-balanced breakfast. It's something to do with fiber, and having your humors balanced ... Look, we're not nutritionists, okay?...

Dragon's Dogma will feature a dragon so big, so dogmatic (why not) that it'll take the collective efforts of everyone playing to kill it. The "Ur-Dragon" is an event in which every player party will be able to fight the giant beast in their own games, with all damage dealt to it worldwide contribu...

"I wanted to create the biggest world in any Capcom game so far," director Hideaki Itsuno says about Capcom's upcoming RPG, Dragon's Dogma. The other big goal was creating a game where players are able to finish the game in many different ways – an experience shaped by choices....

The latest issue/episode of the Dragon's Dogma digital comic details the narrative justification for the game's "pawn" system, which allows players to borrow NPCs from another user's single-player game. Obviously, that involves giant glowing rocks and murdered people in front of castles....

We know there are dragons, and pawns, and repetitive dialogue, but Capcom's Dragon's Dogma remains surprisingly mysterious for something that's due to hit next month. It's a good thing, then, that Capcom announced plans to release a downloadable demo in North America and Europe next week. You'll b...

Character customization is an important part of Dragon's Dogma, both for your character and for the AI-controlled "pawns" you can summon and share with other players. That concept is extending to the Capcom Store's pre-order bonus, a "Bobble Budd" toy that you can redesign as you see fit. The Bobbl...

Yes, we do mean that in Dragon's Dogma you fight dragons in the sky -- just in case that wasn't clear. You should probably make things even clearer by watching one such dragon get totally stabbed in mid-air in the trailer above, preparing you for the upcoming undated demo on XBL and PSN. -->

Dragon's Dogma is going to be the Zone of the Enders of 2012. We don't mean it's going to have awesome robots -- rather, a significant portion of its audience will be buying it only for the included demo. Capcom announced today that Dragon's Dogma will be out in North America on May 22, and in E...

Capcom's upcoming fantasy role-playing game Dragon's Dogma isn't interesting at all. It might not even be good. Writers in the gaming press have a tendency to go easy on in-development games. Readers love jumping to conspiracy-theory conclusions about our positivity but, the truth is, we wan...

Dragon's Dogma lets you recruit AI "pawns" to fill out your adventuring party. You get to customize one of your own, which can then travel into other players' games via "rifts," and vice versa. Learn more about the monster fodder in this video....
