Pre-ordered this, no regrets. (ninja)
All Dragon Quest Builders 2 Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2019
I clearly missed that, then! I even have alerts for "nintendo switch" search on here!
Really liked this game😁 (y)
"Not seen it this cheap before"...except for maybe here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/dragon-quest-builders-2-switch-3499-amazon-3302897 Sorry to be so rude, but I couldn't resist.
Gone back to 42.99 so expiring.
Outstanding game, worth every penny. The frame rate issues on the switch are nothing game breaking, don't let that put you off.
Really good game but a few sections were almost unplayable on the switch.
Depends if you value portability over performance. Because if you really want it portable then go ahead, but DQB2 sure doesn't run as perfectly as DQB1 does on the Switch.
Yep frame rate looks horrendous on the digital foundry review, I'd avoid this.
I still haven't played the first one.. too many games and no time ☹
Holding out for the switch version
Fantastic game I got this on the day it was released,My grand kids love it and I have spent hours on it myself ,well worth buying. (y)
Better in almost every way when compared to the first and this is a great price.
Nearly as cheap as the 1st one - heat!
So tempted to get this, one of my mates is playing this on ps4 and is liking it. Apparently it has made some decent gameplay improvements over the last one.
I highly regret getting this for the Switch, the further I've got in the game the worse the frame rate gets. I knew after preordering it from CdKeys for £41 that rebuying any time soon wasn't something I was willing to do so I just had to face this is the version I'm stuck with. Even the season is £2 dearer on the Switch so I bought that from Press Start which have it for the same price as it is for the PS4. The whole reason I bought it for the Switch was because I wanted to be able to play it portable but the pop up & menu text is too small so I haven't be able to do that. Thankfully I'm enjoying the game enough to not feel massive bitter about this to the point I end up not wanting to play the game like many other games I had my chosen platform performance issues with.
Got it for £36 off TGC on pre-order (£31 for one day delay compensation) 3 weeks ago (time sure flies...) but I got about 50-60 hrs out of it already so not gonna lose sleep over it. More or less the standard with Square Enix games (high supply with low demand - first run of Nier Automata was actually out of stock within a few months but that seems to be the exception) but this is more than I thought it'd be especially with the high critical praise. The problem with the game is it is more or less a single player game with MP added on as an after-thought. If it was marketed properly with meaningful co-op then it'd fare better. £28 is a great price but won't surprise me if it falls further ala Dragon Quest Heroes 2.
Suppose it's somewhat of a niche series in the West still
I told y'all this would drop like a rock. (although most of you already knew it would I'm sure)
Any chance of the Switch version of this falling anywhere near that price?
I enjoy watching people play this but I reckon I won't be able to enjoy playing this myself esp as I never played these type of games.
Yeah they've literally dropped it just now. I saw it too.
27.95 at games collection
Hi removed the £36.95 NBP (next best price) as it's available for the same price at GAME (y)
Still this price at GAME, see my link above.
Screw the backlog, it's still £29.99 at GAME ! https://www.game.co.uk/en/dragon-quest-builders-2-2581061
Back to forty quid. Thank god for my walllet. Must. Clear. Backlog. A bit at least
Seems like the offer as already ended, a shame.
The main story in Builders 2 is still very linear though, with each story island having you pretty much start from scratch.
From what I remember Dragon Quest Builders 1 held its price pretty well, and Dragon Quest Builders 2 has been a great critical success. Its possible the price will drop, but I suspect it is unlikely to fall much lower than about £30 and will probably average at about £35 like the first one. Edit: OK, I am going by current switch prices for the first. It seems the first costs about £20-£25 on the PS4 now. (But it is 3 years old, while the Switch version is only a year old)
I get the feeling this is going to drop like a rock over the coming weeks.
Hope you're enjoying it, I got mine this morning. Looks like I'll be sinking in a lot of time on this one too. (y)
Yeah probably do that with my pre-orders, their loss.
Well this is all disappointing to hear :/ just cancelled quite a big bulk preorder with TGC in fear of stock issues on release. Paid a bit more at ShopTo.net, but they’ve been nothing short of exceptional in my experience so worth the extra for the sense of security. And the money I’d have saved with TGC wouldn’t have been worth the rage I’d undoubtedly endure if they did cock the order up lol
Nice, glad to hear you got it sorted in the end. If your lucky the discounts that didn't work before might work later. ;)
Got it sorted in the end I just emailed them and the added £20 to my account (y) 🏻
I noticed frame rate drop and long load times. Not enough to ruin it for me though.
Here's a link to the PS4 vs Switch comparison mentioned in my above post; https://mobile.twitter.com/tomikojix/status/1131577040417710080
I need to try the Switch demo. I watched a comparison of the Japanese versions, where someone ran from one side of an island to the other, ps4 vs switch, and the game was slowed down so much on Switch that same journey took a significantly longer time. While the demo might be passable, once you build up a village in the full game, the lack of performance headroom likely hits performance. Its a shame as the first game's performance was solid on Switch, 720/60 docked & 720/30 portable. If the sequel is 720/30 (?) and not even guaranteed that, I think the PS4 version would be the better option given the choice. I imagine its an unintended consequence of a much more ambitious game.
This one isn't done like the first where it's 4 worlds is it? Played some of the demo but turned it off shortly into the island.
Between DQB & DQB2, they have not directly related. The 2nd one is better in so many points. If you liked the first one but, don't liked the limitations and problem he had, fear not, the second is beyond better. Unfortunately, the demo don't give him proper justice.
Not shipped yet either but got reassured it will be arriving on Friday...they took the money already so I'm guessing it'll be dispatched today. edit: just got the dispatch email. (:I
Anyone else’s not shipped yet? Says awaiting stock
Discount finished (y)
