    Should mention, but Flow (or flOw) should be out on the PS4 and Vita this week, too! Looking forward to it, it’s cross-buy between the PS4, PS3, and Vita.

      Summary of Dengeki’s review. Overall, gameplay has been improved quite a bit, more action packed ground levels while dragon riding gameplay flows much better. Seems like camera is still the problem with the game. But I’m sure it can’t be as bad as DoD1.

        - The game music is definitely a gem and masterpiece

        Sold.

    ,,, and then, I think, genitals. I feel weird.

  • Arcana Wiz

    I really hope it sells good, it’s the future of a IP that we are seeing here!

  • Shippoyasha

    The creators of these games and Nier are masters at pulling at the heart strings and ripping them apart. I both anticipate and dread playing this game. I know my head will spin and my heart will burst by the time they drop plot twists on me.

  • Death Saved

    Heres hoping we dont get an angry protagonist cover instead of this one.

    Drag-On Dragoon vs. Drakengard. Which do you think is the better title? I kind of like Drag-On Dragoon more, even though Drakengard is kind of neat.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Drakengard sounds cooler, even though it has no meaning
