ShogunRok commented on Your PS4's Seemingly Got a Little More Powerfu...:

@Strangers Well, thanks for the feedback. I personally don't think one questionable headline out of roughly 18.000 articles from Sammy is too bad. I certainly don't think it's enough reason to stop him from being paid, either.

It's fine to be critical of our work - yes, we are our own editors - but please don't belittle our writers in the process.



ShogunRok commented on Soapbox: Why Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation Plus...:

@Johnnycide Yeah, absolute legend that he is. I'd agree - one of the best characters in modern video games, easily.

@JoeBlogs I did skip at least one night's worth of sleep - I remember that much. I honestly just got so absorbed in the game that I didn't care about anything else. Not sure I could do that these days!



ShogunRok commented on This Dissidia Trailer Reminds Us That We Need ...:

@DerMeister @Gamer83 To be fair, remasters generally only require a small team and, unless the studio is absolutely tiny, never really impact on the production of other games.

Square Enix's problem isn't strictly that it's working on too many games - Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts are being developed by different teams after all - it's just that the company's management has been beyond poor. Fortunately, it seems to be getting back on track as of late.



ShogunRok commented on Review: Eiyuu Senki - The World Conquest (PS3):

@themcnoisy Visual novels can span all sorts of stuff. You can get ones that are basically just books - no real player choice to be found.

As for this, from what I can tell, the visual novel stuff is there to keep the story ticking rather than offering branching paths.



ShogunRok commented on Talking Point: Which PS2 Games Would You Play ...:

Dragon Quest VIII. Although with it coming to 3DS, I don't know how feasible that is.

Not sure what else. Persona 3 I suppose? Final Fantasy XII? Although to be honest, I'd rather have actual enhanced remasters for both of those.



ShogunRok commented on Talking Point: Should Sony Build an Elite Dual...:

@ZeD To be honest, I couldn't give a crap how the Xbox One pad is built - don't own one. But I do know that both of my DualShock 4 controllers have obvious faults and we're only into the second year of the generation. No way will they last another few years.

@Visualift Doesn't matter how the price compares - they're both far too expensive in that case. £35 for a DualShock 4 in a 'sale' is atrocious, given they usually cost around £44.



ShogunRok commented on Talking Point: Should Sony Build an Elite Dual...:

Part of me thinks it would be an okay option to have, but at the same time, DualShock 4s are already stupidly expensive.

The DualShock 4 is the most comfortable controller I've ever used, but as stated in the article, the build quality is bloody terrible, and the battery life is crap. Much like @get2sammyb, the rubber on the left stick of my launch controller is almost completely worn away. The rubber on the right stick is peeling now, too. Meanwhile, I have a blue DualShock 4 that has a squeaky R2 trigger!

With all that in mind, Sony should fix the build of usual DualShock 4s before it even thinks about making one that'll cost at least twice as much.



ShogunRok commented on Guide: Fallout 4 PS4 Character Builds That Wil...:

@darkswabber I'm not entirely sure if anything over 10 counts. If 10's the hard cap then it won't, but having said that, wearing power armour can put your Strength over 10, and it seems to provide the correct effects.

Have you found the bobblehead for Intelligence? Did it put your stat to 11 or did it stay 10?



ShogunRok commented on Review: Fallout 4 (PS4):

@Gmork___ Have you tried tweaking your TV's picture settings? Definitely can't say I ever found it hard to see, except when there's a lot of fog weather.

Like, it's not the best looking game in the world - not at all - but it's waaaaay better looking than old Fallout games!



ShogunRok commented on Guide: Fallout 4 Hints and Tips for Beginners ...:

@Matroska Ideally you need to kill it before it gets too close - it's the only safe way.Depending on what difficulty you're playing, though, that can be a tall order.

You can try luring it towards a car that's about to explode, or try to find some kind of vantage point - there are some smaller buildings the deathclaw won't be able to follow you into, but it's still risky.

Are you using V.A.T.S. or free aim? Free aiming is definitely the way to go with the minigun. Also, when the raiders are still around, let the deathclaw fight them first while you pelt it from a distance - that's how I did it initially.



ShogunRok commented on Star Wars Battlefront Won't Fill Too Much of Y...:

@FullbringIchigo As far as I know, the reason that we have to install games from the disc is because the disc drive isn't fast enough on its own - the games need to have data on the system's drive in order to run.

Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's the reason, or part of it.



ShogunRok commented on Review: Fallout 4 (PS4):

@Matroska Yeah, but then you're edging your way into the realms of impossibility if you really could do anything. The amount of things you can do in Fallout 4 is staggering as it is - and they're all (just about) completely optional. I certainly can't think of many other similar titles that offer this much freedom.
