ShogunRok commented on The Elder Scrolls Online's Dark Brotherhood DL...:

@glassmusic Honestly, ESO is one of the few MMOs that I think could work well as just a single player game. You can do the whole story alone if you want, and 99% of quests that don't involve co-op dungeons and the like. And yeah, the story is actually pretty decent for the most part, you follow various events that all tie it. I think it's well done, really!



ShogunRok commented on The Elder Scrolls Online's Dark Brotherhood DL...:

@glassmusic It's well worth a shot if you already have it. Even if you don't stick it through the whole way, the first 20 hours or so are great as you develop your character and get good loot.

Admittedly, it does get a bit repetitive at times, but that's partly because the game is just so stupidly huge. Again, I'd say give it a go and see whether you get into it.



ShogunRok commented on Don't Worry, You Didn't Miss Much in the Lates...:

@Feena That's a good point actually, and one I usually forget when ranting about why most games should have New Game+. It definitely takes away a lot of the pressure that comes with seeing everything a game has to offer in one playthrough.



ShogunRok commented on PS4K Is Codenamed Neo, Has Upgraded Specs, Wil...:


Okay, we've really got to start watching the bad language now. Sammy's already issued a warning, so consider this the second and last. Anyone who swears from here on out is going to take a break I'm afraid!



ShogunRok commented on PS4 Action RPG The Technomancer Crackles with ...:

@BAMozzy @Wazeddie22 I'll probably be reviewing this one since I did Bound by Flame - hopefully it turns out better. Bound by Flame had potential but it just didn't live up to the task, and while The Technomancer definitely seems to have similarities, you'd like to think that the developer has taken feedback on board and has made a better game. We'll see.



ShogunRok commented on Soapbox: Street Fighter V Gets a Lot of Hate, ...:

@adf86 @sub12 I know exactly where both of you are coming from, but we can't let the comments section devolve into another argument over SFV's content or it'll never end. We've all been at this long enough to know what's good and what's bad - let's try to stay on the topic of professional play and watching it!



ShogunRok commented on Review: Stories: The Path of Destinies (PS4):

@Grawlog Yeah, the hope is that it'll be patched. I really enjoyed reviewing this, but you just can't overlook the performance issues, especially for a game that's not really demanding a huge amount from the PS4.

Without those issues, I'd say this is a solid 7 or 8/10.



ShogunRok commented on DLC Review: Building Deathclaw Arenas in Fallo...:

@Cleric20 It does make a few things easier when it comes to settlement building, which I suppose could, in turn, make it easier to get maximum happiness.

For example, one of the best objects the DLC brings is a fusion core generator, which offers a ridiculous 100 electricity. In other words, you could power everything in a settlement with just one of these things, and that puts less strain on resources elsewhere.

Now that I think about it, maybe that's a little pay-to-win...



ShogunRok commented on Ubisoft's Dated its E3 2016 Press Conference:

@WARDIE All that article says is:

"There have been a lot of rumblings that Sony changed its minds on DRM and used games following Microsoft’s nearly disastrous presser. House says that isn’t the case.

It is interesting, though, that they decided to rewrite their presentation in favor of throwing Microsoft under the bus."

So Sony changed the script, right? It didn't change its stance at all, according to House - it just decided to stick the boot in more than it would have, which basically falls under what Sammy said.



ShogunRok commented on People Are Going Daft Over Dark Souls III Clot...:

I think everyone's at fault here. Bamco shouldn't be teasing "big news" because they know people will jump to outrageous conclusions. But at the same time, people - especially in this industry - are far too easily hyped up.



ShogunRok commented on Japanese Sales Charts: Star Ocean 5 Blasts Off...:

@rjejr The PS4 has started to do better in recent times, settling around the 30k mark which is an improvement over what it was doing a while back. That said, 30k isn't a massive amount when compared to the numbers of older consoles. The market's shrunk - not much more you can do!



ShogunRok commented on Poll: Will You Be Buying Final Fantasy XV?:

@owen012201 Yeah, the Platinum Demo isn't a part of the main game, so it has no real bearing on the story. And just to clarify, the Final Fantasy games don't have a continual story. Final Fantasy VII is set in a different world with a completely different cast to Final Fantasy VIII, for example.

It's only games like Final Fantasy X-2 and XIII-2 that continue the plot of the previous game, so if you're interested in XV, you'll be able to jump in without knowing anything whatsoever about the rest of the series.
