ShogunRok commented on Sony Schedules Japanese PlayStation Presser fo...:

@rjejr Yeah, I mean Sony is surely not dumb enough to produce another handheld at this point in time.

@Grawlog 3DS or not, I just don't think there's room for a dedicated handheld platform (as we know them) at this point in time, which is a shame, but it's the truth. Maybe later down the line things will change.

ShogunRok commented on Review: The King of Fighters XIV (PS4):

@themcnoisy I think KoF is the best direct comparison to SF out of all the games you mentioned though. Tekken and SoulCalibur are fully 3D fighters w while Smash is kind of its own thing. MK... maybe but it's always been the Western equivalent. Same with Killer Instinct.

ShogunRok commented on Review: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (PS4):

@Frank90 The shooting is definitely better than it was in HR, but it's still not quite on par with the gunplay that you'd find in a dedicated shooter. I'd say the story is on a smaller scale here, but your choices tend to have more impact on what happens than they did in HR.

@Mr_Alejo If it makes any difference I did come close to giving this game an 8/10 but for me it just didn't quite get there. If you really enjoyed Human Revolution I think you'll probably like this more than I did.

@Lonejester Last paragraph before the conclusion: "Thankfully, the moody electronic soundtrack is spot on throughout."

Would have gone into more detail on the music but didn't think it was totally necessary. Generally speaking though, the soundtrack is pretty good. That said, I don't remember too much of Human Revolution's music other than it was unsurprisingly very similar to what's on offer here.

@Shellcore @ApostateMage @ekreig Gameplay-wise Mankind Divided is much more refined. Jensen controls smoother and I think the level design is better overall. Human Revolution arguably offers a broader, more meaningful story, though. The plot here feels reasonably small in scope - it's more self-contained.

As for boss fights, I only encountered one in my entire playthrough, but I assume this all depends on how you tackle certain missions. For the record, this particular boss fight was one of the low points of the game for me.

ShogunRok commented on Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster for PS4 May Final...:

@rjejr @GraveLordXD Well... I mean, it is a trilogy, so it's supposed to be played in order, but I feel like anyone who hasn't dabbled in the series before could be seriously put off by the first game, purely because it's so clunky by today's standards. It's a shame too, because the first one arguably has the best story.

I guess we can hope that BioWare will transfer the combat from Mass Effect 3 into the first two games? Seems like it'd be a heck of a lot of work, though, and probably unlikely.

ShogunRok commented on Gamescom 2016: Tekken 7 Story Mode Details Dro...:

@K-Wud Yeah, that boss character... was it Azrael? Something like that - he was absolutely crap, even worse than Jinpachi in Tekken 5. To be honest, I don't remember a great deal about Tekken 6. I can sort of recall the weird story mode with Lars, but that's about it. Got a lot more enjoyment out of TTT2.

ShogunRok commented on Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster for PS4 May Final...:

@rjejr The first Mass Effect has aged very poorly in my opinion. If you're totally new to the series, it could easily put you off the whole thing. Might be better to start with the second game - the story is a continuation but you can still kick things off there, and it does a great job of being its own game.
