ShogunRok commented on Destiny Will Keep Your PS4 Occupied for Months...:

@get2sammyb But again, it's not really solid evidence. I mean, granted, even I was a bit disappointed to hear that there are only a handful of locations, but that statement is at least true, if very slightly misleading. The ruins on the different planets are what we'll be exploring, after all. It still comes down to people assuming that there's going to be this entire galaxy to explore, and then being disgusted that their theories weren't quite right.



ShogunRok commented on Destiny Will Keep Your PS4 Occupied for Months...:

To be fair, though, this is more of a case of people creating unrealistic expectations. There was never any concrete evidence that there would be a galaxy to explore, with gigantic maps on every planet you can imagine — yet that seems to be what people thought Destiny would consist of.

Although that said, I thought in Old Russia there were places that were sealed off. You'd get there, a new location name would pop up, but you wouldn't be able to enter as there'd be a closed gate or a wall blocking it.

Anyway, imagination is a scary thing. I guess you could blame Bungie for not coming out with information about content sooner, but people should never make assumptions based on pure hype alone and then be disappointed when they aren't in fact a reality.



ShogunRok commented on Feature: The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Seven: ...:

@Davros79 Thanks, and I know what you mean. I think it's fine to criticise based on what we've seen, but it's always best to wait for the full release and see what changes. That said, I too think that story missions need a bit of a kick if it's going to be a really enjoyable campaign, but it must be tough to balance a game that can be played both alone and with two friends. I'm still confident that it'll be a fantastic game as a whole, though.



ShogunRok commented on Mass Effect's PS4 Debut Still Stuck in a Galax...:

Ugh, the Mako. I wouldn't mind exploration in Mass Effect if it was done well. Unlike it was in the first game, where every planet was a barren wasteland and the Mako didn't exactly control like you'd expect a space age vehicle to.



ShogunRok commented on Who Would Win Wednesdays: Destiny Special:

Wow, this one's gone all over the place. At first, the Titan was winning by quite a few votes, then the Hunter caught up, then the Warlock gained the lead, then the Titan totally fell behind, and now the Hunter is winning. This could go anywhere.



ShogunRok commented on Review: Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty (PlayStation 4):

The original game was incredibly atmospheric and wonderfully weird. I always loved taking control of animals like the Scrabs and killing everything I came across. Good to hear the this remake lives up to the strangeness!



ShogunRok commented on Feature: The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Four: L...:

@Davros79 I've come across a couple that are 57 and once you upgrade them (they're uncommon) they jump to 61 or 62. Pretty sure that's about the maximum for stuff you can find in the beta, but if you look at some of those level 20 weapons that are for sale, they have over 300 attack! Seems ridiculous.



ShogunRok commented on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Didn't Look Like T...:

I play Skyrim on PC, and to get graphics like this throughout the game with a steady frame rate, you're gonna need a bit of a monster rig. Chances are these portraits were taken using a slew of visual enhancement mods that would slow most games to a crawl if you actually tried to play them rather than take nice photos.

And that's without mentioning all of the character model enhancement mods that were used to make these. Trust me, vanilla Skyrim women do not look this radiant even on PC.
