How do you play Dungeons and Dragons?

So you say that D&D is for nerds and you played ANY RPG AT ALL because they all start from that lil game. Personally D&D is a great game you can make up your own rules, like I was playing it once and one of the guys in our party we didn't like so we put him in a bag and dumped him in a hole!

D&D is cool so don't say it's not. And it's a movie too, so that could mean something, like they're FINALY making a video game to go with the film perhaps.

Those who dislike it either never played it, or had a DM who was awful. DnD is an experience you can't dislike. It's simply against the laws of nature.

Huh? A film? The dragon scepter thing? That was the worst movie ever, it doesn't capture the soul of DnD. IF DnD on the Wii will be like the board game where we have freedom to do whatever we will, online too, it's a must-have. If it's a campaign spin-off like those horrible Baldur's Gate games and such, I wouldn't buy this game.

OctoBot speaks the truth but unfortunately there is not a single game on the market that can truly emulate the freedom of ttRPGing. It would take a huge amount of time to create a game that could allow such scope. But the challenge is there.

Hehe ok. Here's something for all you D&D naysayers. I was at Chapters (bookstore) and I saw a book on the 25th anniversary celebration of Dungeons and Dragons game. I opened the cover and my jaw dropped when I read who'd written the foreword. None other than Vin Diesel. He played D&D as a kid.

I want all of you to ask five people you know if they have ever played dnd. 3 of the 5 should say yes.

OctoBot said:

Sure it's really hard, but I believe harder games were made, or at least as hard. I mean those MMORPGs running now are freakin hard, and I -as an amateur game programmer say it IS hard, but not impossible. With the Wii being online and able to download updates and if it was done, huge success shall be met my dwarven friend.

Eye of the Beholder! Hello!? The game is a classic. At the risk of revealing myself as the oldest person here, this game was on the PC on 5 1/4" disks. I really only started playing EotB2 so I'm not sure exactly how old it is but the sequel was out before 1993. I wonder if this is an updated version, or just a virtual console port of the original. Hey, and all those people laughing at D&D, could I point out that you're posting on a Nintendo Wii forum? About games that haven't been released yet? Go and play football or something if you want to be all tough.

I played the board game once and didn't have a clue what was going on, now they have started making video games and movies I won't understand a thing.

It can only be better if instead of using the Wii Remote as a sword or to cast spells, you turn it on its side to roll the dice.

Gameplay said:

I think the best way to do a real DnD game would be to use the gambit system from FFXII. Stormreach showed that a MMORPG format isn't a great match for DnD because of the party-centered quests and lack of freedom. If the game was set up more like FFXII, where you simply give your characters basic commands and they carry them out in battle automatically, then it would be feasible to control your whole party. It would have to let you build your entire party from scratch (probably four characters), and at least have the basic 11 classes and basic 7 races plus a selection of prestige classes from the complete books. An option to allow external control of single characters by other online players over WiiConnect24 would be cool and would make the multiplayer crowd happy, but not having the ability to go solo just doesn't work because there is never any persistent party or plot cohesion.

DnD said:

A major portion of the game should be based around puzzles, cryptic clues and character interaction with NPCs- you just have to look at a wizard's spells per day to see that the game isn't supposed to be all about combat- spells and hp should both burn at the normal rate, and then the party has to rest (with a percent chance for an attack at night, of course)- using some sort of save/heal crystal would also be ok, although it would be the easy way out as opposed to making the party pitch tents every couple of hours.

I can't wait to see more info on this game. LOVE D&D. The movie sucked and the MMO is crap, but of the D&D pen and paper and video games I've tried, I have yet to be disappointed. That being said, I haven't played ALL of them, so I hope they knock one out of the park for the Wii release.

I almost thought this game said "Eye of the Bladder" when I looked at the title.

This game is going to be awesome, kind of like baulders gate I'm guessing.

Nerdilicous defionicious makes the nerds go crazy. People hibernate in their basements and play this.

Inflames said:

Not to be a shocker, but by posting here on this comment section, you are labeling youself a nerd. It's ok, as we have inherited the earth anyway. I hope they do justice to the original.

Bri said:

D&D! Omg sounds awesome! I'm one of those dorks who always play that game.

cool said:

Yeah I just started the game myself, sounds cool. I wonder if it will be like the pencil and paper game, I hope it's like that rather than the D&D online game.

Old Gamer said:

To Echokin- Yeah I remember that game comfortably. I'm assuming this is an update for that. And to whomever it was that referred to Baldur's Gate as "rubbish" or something along those lines. Please, those were innovative and clever games for the time, they simply haven't dated too well. I don't see this as being an MMO sadly, but wouldn't mind something like WoW for the Wii that's for sure!

Mr Friend said:

I bet this game will end up being another Diablo rip off like Baulders Gate: Dark Allience. I would much prefer a more strict following of D&D, but people seem to think consoles need PRESS BUTTONS NOW!

Chris said:

I am weary of this title. The SNES version of EotB was excellent, but it was old school dungeon crawling. It was relentless and very unforgiving. It took me nearly a year to beat it because if you do something as miniscule as taking too long to solve a puzzle you could die from starvation. Not to mention various pacing issues. Alas, a translation or even a revamp would be interesting.

Nomad said:

Hey we have the basic game for D&D and it is no fun without a good DM. So all of you that rag on D&D, you must have had a really bad DM.

Steve said:

I loved D&D. Although the guy I played it with had really short stories, I only one I remember is I killed some trolls, entered a portal, was sent into a church, killed a guy with a shotgun, then some guy said "Want a piece of me" so I said sure and he said "what piece" and it was over.

D&D is such a great game. The true meaning of playing an RPG. But I disagree with OctoBot as Baldur's Gate is the best PC game I have ever played and I recommend it to anyone who wishes to find out the magic of D&D. Keep playing games.

I was a DM going back almost 25 years ago when I used to play D&D then Advanced D&D with several close friends. If I EVER find a console game that can pull me into it for 36 hours over a weekend the way D&D used to do I will be a happy man. My friends and I used to play every weekend in my flat and we used to put $10 each in the kitty, the person who had the most experience points at the end of the weekends playing would win the kitty and if he liked the campaigns he would split it with the DM, which gave me an incentive to try and make the campaigns as good as I could. If anyone wants to know about D&D, look for a film called Mazes & Monsters starring a very young Tom Hanks or find a book called the dungeon master about the disappearance of a boy called James Dallas Egbert III. Both good examples about how much this game took over the lives of kids in the late 70's early 80's. If the game is anywhere near as good as the original d&d role playing game I will be a very happy oldish man.

Ha Darkmagi. I was playing in the UK at about the same time. Yup 36 hours over a weekend sounds about right. And now my daughter is just getting into it. I will be interested to see what they make of the Wii version.

The original D&D Video game was released in 1982 for the Intellivision. At the time it was the scariest thing ever. The map would only reveal as you walked down a corridor, so 9/10 you would walk straight into a "Groat" or a "Dreadlock". They would sprint towards you screaming. It was a really jumpy, tense game! If this is anything like that, it'll be essential.

I hope they let you use the remotes as a sword and shield. Then it'd be kind of like a mix between LARP and console.

Fools said:

Let's see Fable, Dragon Origins, Final Fantasy, no wait a minute - Mass Effect, Call of Duty: You take a role and play in someones scripted environment. Oh NOW YOU SEE- it's based from ROLE PLAYING GAMES that used to be paper based. So you bashers and idiots screaming filth and bigotry and D&Der plus the rest. YOU PLAY THE MODERN EQUIVALENT.

Anyone know when this game should be coming out on the Wii? That would be awesome.
