Dragon’s Dogma 2, typically talking, would love you to make use of a controller. As a lot as my inside PC gamer curmudgeon may bicker with that mandate, it is 2024—most gamers are gonna have a gamepad mendacity round someplace, except you are the form of wunderkind to sort out Elden Ring with a mouse and keyboard. Wherein case, I concern your energy.

Just like preventing video games, there’s simply one thing about face buttons and shoulderpads that lend themselves properly to third-person motion RPGs, in the identical method {that a} mouse and keyboard is a must have for first-person shooters. I do not make the foundations. Dragon’s Dogma, nevertheless, would additionally such as you to choose up flowers and dash with the identical button, which is a call I am far much less glad about. 

This may occasionally hassle you, or it is likely to be completely superb—I’ve heard each issues from the PC Gamer workforce, but it surely was beginning to give me a headache earlier than a fellow author identified that you could possibly repair it, so now I am passing on that data to you.

Doing this allows you to look at and decide up gadgets along with your ordinary button, whereas permitting you to additionally dash by pressing down the left analog stick as god supposed. That is much more preferable, and in addition how most motion RPGs have completed it ceaselessly, and for good cause—typically, if you’re choosing one thing up, you need to decelerate! Insanity, I do know.
