If you're not sure if you'd like it you could always try renting it first, but I enjoy it myself. There's not a lot of character development or relationships between characters like Dragon Age or Mass Effect, but it's a fun game to play since the way they set up your side kicks is really interesting. There is also no way that I've found to choose different levels of play. There's no "casual" setting so it's not for the squeamish. I would say it's probably set at normal to hard setting. There's only one save slot as well so save often and you shouldn't run into too much trouble if things go south. Hope this helps. I'm counting the minutes til I get to go home today, so glad for your question. :-)
I've heard good stuff about Dragon's Dogma, I'm really anxious to try it out. I just finished the first playthrough of Diablo III so I should have time. I haven't been able to read too many reviews, except for that it's got high ratings. That along with enjoying playing Skyrim has me very interested. What do you think? Worth getting as my game to play in the month of June?

I don't know of many games that can compare with Skyrim... except maybe Mass Effect and Dragon Age, but for a change of pace it's a good game. It reminds me more of Dragon Age but the characters aren't as well rounded... sigh Alistair... but it's still a lot of fun.
I like that you're able to customize your main side kick - the other two side kicks you're allowed are, except for a few that the programmers made up, actually other players' main side kicks and they level up as their "creator" levels up - you can search on another player's gamertag to use their main sidekick "Pawn". You can trade out these pawns at any time by touching a Rift Stone, but your main pawn stays with you the whole game. Plus if you're getting your butt kicked in a certain area, you can hire a pawn that's a higher level to help you out but if they're a higher level than you are you might have to pay them to come with you. It's pretty neat.
Thanks for the recommendation on Dragon's Dogma. I did some research on the game and I just downloaded the demo on xbox live. I really love skyrim, so this sounds like fun also. I'll give DD a try. How do you think it compares to skyrim? I know every game offers something a bit different. Thanks again for pointing out the game.

I've never tried to start a topic before so I hope I'm doing this right. Has anyone played Dragon's Dogma? It's my newest addiction. I love that you can not only fight with swords and staffs and who doesn't love that, but the way that they let you customize your main "Pawn" and hire other player's pawns to augment your team is just so cool. Check it out (if my link works lol)!
