@GraveLordXD Yeah, there were a lot of rumours about "Sleeping Dogs 2" a while back, then it turned out that it was actually Triad Wars, and then we got Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition out of nowhere. It's a weird situation, but we might get a sequel someday with any luck.

@Splat Unfortunately, I can't help but feel like that's what most people are going to say once they try this. I hope the free-to-play elements don't ruin it, but you can totally imagine everyone going "Why couldn't they just make Dragon's Dogma 2?!"



ShogunRok commented on Talking Point: Are Bigger Open Worlds Really B...:

All depends on the content, and how well designed the world is.

I adore Skyrim, for example, and could walk around it for hours on end, but even then, I admit that it feels a little empty at times.

On the other hand, you can't walk five minutes in Assassin's Creed Unity without finding something to do, but at the same time, these activities are usually tedious and involve some sort of collectible.

I do think better hardware will improve open world games, though. In time, the worlds will become more and more dynamic, and that'll be a big difference when it comes to exploring and actually wanting to explore open expanses.

@seeafish Some story elements carry over as far as I know, depending on what choices you made in the first two games. But the developer mentioned today that you're able to change past decisions by discussing your adventures with a bard near the beginning of the game.



ShogunRok commented on February's PlayStation Plus Freebies Will Be A...:

Hmmmm. I do think 2015 will be a decent year for Plus purely because the PS4 has a broader selection of games than it did last year. Whether we get something relatively big next month, though, we'll have to wait and see.



ShogunRok commented on Sit Back and Watch The Elder Scrolls Online's ...:

@Faruko Also worth mentioning that Bethesda didn't develop ESO. It's actually developed by ZeniMax Online Studios. I think it's safe to say that Bethesda is working on Fallout 4 right now, and has been since before ESO was announced.

Or at least, I hope so!

@teknium_ I honestly don't mind remasters as long as they're worth it. For example, I feel like GTAV on PS4 was done really well, but there are others that don't actually improve the game as much as you'd like.

Still, if I really like a game, I tend to play it a lot and stick with it, so I'd never argue about my favourites getting the remaster treatment.



ShogunRok commented on Oh No, the Terrible PS4 Themes Have Arrived:

I just find it brilliant that you can go on the PS3 store and see that over 1000 people have paid actual money for some of the worst avatars and themes you could possibly imagine. I think we should make a rush-job Push Square theme and live out the rest of our lives on the profit it generates.



ShogunRok commented on Review: Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings (Pl...:

@ztpayne7 It's fair enough if they wanted to encourage more stealth — I mean, AC has always been a bit easy as far as combat is concerned — but if that's the case, then why give us the option of lugging around heavy weapons and stuff?

I feel like a lot more could have been done to make the game customisable. Want to be great at stealth? Go for it, but you'll be bad at combat. Want to be able to take on whole gangs of bad guys with just your axe? Go for it, but you'll be crap at stealth. A bit more of a trade-off would have been appreciated, I think.

I think Ubisoft needs to scrap the current combat. It went from letting you be horrendously overpowered to being underpowered since enemies could shoot you in the back from off-screen. That, and it just feels clunky, even compared to Black Flag. I don't know why it was slowed down and made that much harder, especially when the game encourages you to choose your own style of play.
