ShogunRok commented on Surprise! Persona 5 is Coming to PS4 After All:

Actually, there's no evidence to support the assumption that Japanese games like Persona won't sell well in the West. For starters, we haven't had a big Japanese name on the PS4 yet, and secondly, Persona is a franchise that'll only get bigger as it expands outside of its original niche.

At this point, looking at the PS4's library, I think a heavy hitting Japanese RPG could sell surprisingly well.



ShogunRok commented on Saints Row IV and All of Its DLC Gets Re-Elect...:

I'm kind of indifferent to playing Saints Row IV on PS4. I really enjoyed it on PS3 (don't worry, I won't plug the review) and it'd be a better experience on Sony's new console due to much better performance.

But at the same time, I feel like a few things would have to be tweaked for me to see the whole thing through again. It's a weird one, at least for me.



ShogunRok commented on Saints Row Dances with the Devil Ahead of Sequ...:

Next-gen Saints Row should be amazing, I loved IV, but you could hear the PS3 struggle as it tried to load everything in, especially if you flew across the map at high speeds. This could be utter chaos without the FPS drop!



ShogunRok commented on PSN Temporarily Offline Again as Attacks Ramp ...:

Yeah I can't get on either. At first I thought Sony must have went ahead with the maintenance, but apparently not.

Like what's been said above, if the PSN buckles when Destiny comes out, there will be absolute hell to pay. Won't even be worth the mental trauma of seeing what people are saying online.



ShogunRok commented on Watch a Staggering 37 Minute Gameplay Walkthro...:

@Subie98 I suppose there are minor spoilers for one specific quest that the developer says is a few hours into the game, but nothing too major.

If you want to go into the full game without knowing a few key characters from this quest, though, I'd say don't watch. There's quite a bit of exposition.



ShogunRok commented on Why Won't Sony Allow You to Subscribe to EA Ac...:

The only thing with EA access that confuses me somewhat is the amount of games/discounts. Unlike PlayStation Plus, EA can't possibly pump out a range of free game trials and discounts on a regular basis, can it? I mean, how long will it be before it's bringing up age-old titles? It looks decent right now thanks to the likes of being able to play FIFA 15 and Dragon Age early, etc. but what happens when it's not the holiday season and EA isn't publishing any games for months to come?



ShogunRok commented on Gamescom 2014: How Does PS4 Firmware Update 2....:

If this actually works as intended, it's probably the best advertising for new games you could possibly have outside of the norm. Interested in a game? Ask your friend if you can play and see if you like it. I think it's very, very smart.



ShogunRok commented on Gamescom 2014: Assassin's Creed Rogue Looks a ...:

I absolutely loved Black Flag, but I played it on PS4. The worry for me is that if I played this one PS3, it'd feel like a pretty substantial step back, especially since Unity seems so fluid and refined. I'm also a bit worried that it'll feel too familiar — I'm really not a fan of the way Shay has many of the exact same animations as Kenway. Bit of a disappointment, but I still hope it's good.
