ShogunRok commented on Review: Toukiden: Kiwami (PlayStation Vita):

@Boerewors I've only tried it with a couple of people online, but cross-play seemed to work as intended. The online component could be better (there's no invite system, for starters) but it should get the job done for you and your brother. Basically one of you makes the room, gives it a recognisable name, maybe a puts a password on it so it's private, and then off you go.

As for the controls, I personally like using the DualShock 4 more than the Vita in this case, but there's no real downside to either of them.



ShogunRok commented on Destiny's Getting Stripped Back on PS3 as Bung...:

@Mithrandir We're a PlayStation-only site, so we're only going to keep it one sided. We did include this quote though: "We weighed the options, with player feedback in mind, and decided to move forward with the expansion by disabling the item comparison feature within the Vault on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360."



ShogunRok commented on An All-Male Party Makes Final Fantasy XV 'More...:

@Quorthon It's not about having bad writers, it's about not forcing something into a story where it's not necessary to fulfil the creator's intended vision. If Tabata wants a Final Fantasy that focuses on the relationship between male characters, it makes little sense to include a female purely so people don't get upset.

We all love good female characters; look at Dragon Age: Inquisition, it's full of them. Sorry if the statement came across negative, and yes, I'd agree that the industry definitely needs better writers, but an extremely negative point of view? Not in the least.



ShogunRok commented on Sony, Why the Heck Have You Moved the PS4's Pl...:

I must admit, it does make getting to 'What's New' a bit harder, because I just used to hold down left on the d-pad to get there, and now I end up at the store instead.

I'm sure we'll get used to it, but yeah, why even bother moving it?



ShogunRok commented on Store Update: 24th March 2015 (North America):

@belmont I've noticed that too, but it only seems to be a few different items, and then the rest comes during the usual store update. Worth checking at 12AM like you say if there's something you're looking to buy.

And I assume you mean Tuesday midnight!



ShogunRok commented on Unfortunately, You'll Have to Wait to Play Thi...:

Quite looking forward to getting back into Inquisition at some point, but this whole timed DLC thing is just ridiculous, especially as Microsoft hasn't even lifted a finger to make sure that people know it's available to buy right now.



ShogunRok commented on Uh Oh, Watch PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne Take Ove...:

@namresaw33 That's fair enough - I'd always say make your own mind up about a game before buying it anyway. I just thought that this should be brought to attention, and it has been mentioned by other sources over the last couple of weeks too.

Anyway. I'm sure it'll be a great game regardless, and if the load times are this long for everybody, it'll more than likely get patched, which is what I'm hoping for!



ShogunRok commented on Uh Oh, Watch PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne Take Ove...:

@Sanquine Yeah, but... it's not like we've forged the video. We're just pointing out that we've had reports, and video evidence, of the load times being rather long. Whether or not it's being said elsewhere about a game which isn't out yet doesn't matter.

And I can't believe anyone can seriously say that a 40 second load screen is a-okay. You're going to die a lot in Bloodborne, and if you have to wait 40 seconds every time that you do, it's going to get old really fast. According to our reports, this isn't a one-time thing. This happens every single time that you die. Big white screen with BLOODBORNE slapped over it. For 40 seconds. As you sit there holding the controller and staring into space.




ShogunRok commented on Bloodborne's PS4 Pre-Load Is Ready to Go in No...:

@john_c We're potentially talking about 40 second load times in a game that's going to kill you a heck of a lot, though. Surely that's a problem? I don't see why anyone would say it isn't. Complaining about it, as far as I'm concerned, isn't entitled in the least - it should be expected.



ShogunRok commented on Bloodborne's PS4 Pre-Load Is Ready to Go in No...:

It's going to be very interesting to see if the load times are mentioned in reviews, etc. Either way, even if they do impact people's impressions of the game, I can't see them being left as they are - it's definitely something that can be patched, at least.
