ShogunRok commented on PSN's Down for Routine Maintenance Later Today:

@Boerewors Maybe ignorant is too harsh a word, but the meaning behind it purely comes from the fact that it is indeed incorrect. You see websites, for example, stating that the network is 'down' and then don't bother to clarify that, well, it isn't actually down. All about those hits, though!



ShogunRok commented on Review: Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 (PS Vita):

@divinelite Oh right sorry, I see what you mean. No, it's basically a spin off - it's got nothing to do with Samurai Warriors 4. It just has the same characters and much of the same story moulded into one mode.

It's essentially like the Samurai Warriors 4 story mode, only you play as your own character through one big plot. Then you've got the challenge mode on top of that.

Now that I think about it, it is pretty confusing!



ShogunRok commented on Review: Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 (PS Vita):

@divinelite The story mode doesn't take as long to complete as chronicles mode in SW4, mostly because it's more straight forward. Think of it as chronicles mode, only it's all laid out across set events rather than travelling around a map.

@lum0s Challenge mode's pretty fun, but it too can be a bit of a grind. There are rare weapons and items that you can buy with points earned in challenge mode, so there's at least reason to try it out. And yes, it is quite dynamic - you can fight different enemies on varying maps and stuff like that.

The only thing that didn't click with me about it was the time limit. You've only got a short amount on the clock, and it only extends when you reach certain point thresholds, which can make the whole thing feel a little too hectic.



ShogunRok commented on You've Only Got One Day to Take Advantage of T...:

@jonny_aces It's mostly to do with licensing deals and stuff like that. Because Sony's split into two companies (Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and Sony Computer Entertainment America) across Europe and North America, it's just a case of getting these deals sorted out differently with various publishers. It's a pain, but that's unfortunately how they work it.



ShogunRok commented on E3 2015: How Much of an RPG Is PS4's Horizon: ...:

@mitcHELLspawn We actually do get invited to E3 - we have done for the last few years now - but it's a case of manpower. If we're at E3, we aren't covering news, and if we're no covering news, then the website's barren while E3 is going on.

We're based in the UK, so getting to E3 is naturally a pain in the arse, and running a traditional website is far different to running a YouTube channel, purely because our content isn't solely based on video media, so we always need to be writing about things, which, as mentioned, is near impossible when you're wandering around a show floor.

In the future, we'd love to get to E3 and cover it for all of you in person, but to do that, we need a bigger team, and to do that, we need to keep doing what we're doing.



ShogunRok commented on E3 2015: Final Fantasy VII's PS4 Remake May No...:

I don't think they have any choice. Many of the events that happen in FFVII will seem weird and out of place if they're not being acted out by small blocky people. I'm fine with it as long as they don't bugger up any of the characters.



ShogunRok commented on E3 2015: Oh No, The PS4 Port of Final Fantasy ...:

@Tasuki I find it quite funny that the PS4 will (eventually) have two different versions of Final Fantasy VII on it. One old, one new. That just seems weird.

And I guess the FFVII port's a kinda cool idea for those who have never played it? Maybe? I know what you mean though - very hard to get excited about.



ShogunRok commented on E3 2015: What Have They Done to Lara Croft's F...:

In all brutal honesty, I think Tomb Raider is just treading ground that Uncharted has already probably done better by this point. Problem is, Uncharted's jumped to the next level, while Lara's still just sticking to the plan.



ShogunRok commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:

It's a good point: a conference that has The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy Remake, and Shenmue III can't be named the best ever, what the heck can? It may not have suited you personally, but you can't possibly argue that any conference has ever had so many incredible moments.
And all of this was topped off by some amazing stuff like Horizon and No Man's Sky. I've seen great press conferences, but I really fail to see how any of them have been better, purely from a spectacle point of view.



ShogunRok commented on Reaction: Sony Delivers the Greatest E3 Press ...:

Everybody calm down. It's absolutely fine if you don't agree with the article, but please express your opinions in a collected manner, much like @Superstick has.

I know E3 can get a bit heated, but that's no excuse when it comes to things like harassment or purposefully goading comments. I'm not saying that these things have occurred, but please stick to the site's rules.



ShogunRok commented on Talking Point: Did Sony's Big E3 2015 Press Co...:

A conference that had:
The Last Guardian.
Shenmue III

This is like the real equivalent of a fanboy's most outrageous wet dream. How anyone can not be in awe is beyond my comprehension.
