This trailer is absolutely ridiculous and over the top, so why can't I stop looking at it? And how do you go about describing it to someone who hasn't seen it? How do you slip in the part about an unborn fetus rocking out, or that an 80's metal song that was so metal it had to be locked away in a volcano. These are not normal discussion topics!

I can only imagine why SOE decided to tie dragons to 80's metal music. Long time fans of the era perhaps. SOE even went so far as to get band members from Cinderalla, an actual 80's glam metal band whose top hit was this:

Oh the 80's, look at me acting like I remember those two years I was alive.

There is some gameplay involved in the music video, but it seems pretty straight forward. Everything that's got a dragon gets to fly around, challenge a variety of mean looking brutes and be awesome. Everything that isn't a dragon gets set aflame.

Now I just have to wonder, "Are badly localized dragons still metal"?

Been playing the EU servers... Lair and stable slots are available in the Dragon Insignia section of the marketplace, so you don't have to buy them with money, just do dailies everyday for about a year and you've unlocked them all lol.

Sadly the music video and the song itself, is awesome. The actual Dragon's Prophet game...eh, not even close to awesome. Bad animations, bad textures, bad quests, bad game play, just about everything else screams "half assed" and then throw in the cash shop to get more inventory, more dragon slots, and well game is not even that amazing, nope not close.

Taming dragons cool? Yes, but so is Pokemon.

It's so sad that the trailer is 100x cooler than the game actually is.

Dragon's profit. :P well too bad the game is badly coded so it doesn't run on my average pc. resolution issues where the screen is always cut off and even low fps at the lowest settings. and lol i have a pretty good pc. i really hate to see games be unplayable because developers and publishers didn't seem to care about making the game accessible for all ranges of hardware. would have loved to play this game!

Unique video! Thumbs up!

I enjoy the game a lot. With a little polish and TLC, I think it will make to be a great F2P game. Let's hope this open beta program is actually used for testing and see some updates at official release.

I don't care what any one say's, THIS IS AWESOME!! I have been a huge metal fan since I heard Iron Maiden Running Free. & I still am to this day. KILLSWITCH RULES!!! Everyone also should know 80's Metal has a huge following in japan & china so it fits perfect.

It's a shame the gameplay of Dragon's Prophet, and the animation is just so poorly done, or else, I would've considered the $60 I spent worth while.

Even after attempting a few times to play Dragon's Prophet, I just couldn't get around to holding myself to play for more then an hour. The concept of the game is incredible, but it lacks quite a bit.
