ShogunRok commented on Review: Samurai Warriors 4 (PlayStation 4):

@THEundying27 Well, like you say, all the PS4 games are on PS3 too, so they're never gonna look amazing, but Samurai Warriors 4 is definitely the pick of the bunch because it's all so nicely designed. The levels look great, the characters look great... It's hard to find fault in its presentation.

As for looking like a shiny last-gen port, I think this could hold its own on PS4 for the reasons mentioned above.

And by flawless performance I mean next to no frame rate drops or pop in. Runs pretty perfectly across the board.



ShogunRok commented on Review: Samurai Warriors 4 (PlayStation 4):

@THEundying27 There's this bit in the last paragraph: "what are easily the best visuals that any Warriors franchise has seen, sporting a somewhat subtle colour palette and what is, without doubt, the most enticing, picturesque level design in Omega Force's history."

Performance wasn't mentioned because it's near flawless. Draw distance is as good as any other PS4 Warriors games, too.



ShogunRok commented on Feature: Why Do Next-Gen Games Keep Disappoint...:

@hardrockr79 I can't help but think the same sometimes. It must get harder and harder for developers to come up with something original, let alone revolutionary. It'll happen eventually, but it needs time.

I agree that we should start looking at games for what they are, and not what we expect them to be.



ShogunRok commented on Feature: Why Do Next-Gen Games Keep Disappoint...:

It's been about what I expected.

Sure, some things have been disappointing, but it's all about expectations. Never before have I seen such madness when it comes to hyping up games and then absolutely trashing them two weeks later. It's getting ridiculous.



ShogunRok commented on Is PSN Down Yet Again? For Some, the Answer's Yes:

The PSN has been awful for me for the past week. Friends list takes minutes to load, constant server timeouts, and downloads take much longer than they should.

Destiny has also been uncharacteristically unreliable lately too, although that could have something to do with the PSN. Either way, Sony needs to sort out these problems ASAP.



ShogunRok commented on Review: Watch Dogs: Bad Blood (PlayStation 4):

@zerotheclown We're not comparing it to Destiny, though. Destiny has no narrative exposure (which is bad) and Watch Dogs is predictable and cliched. We gave both games an 8 and said that both featured poor storytelling one way or the other.

At least T-Bone is more likeable than Aiden!



ShogunRok commented on This Dude Has Played Way More Destiny Than You...:

Yeah the new bounty system is actually pretty good. You pick up some of the Queen's specific ones, do them, and every time you finish one, a new "kill order" mission is unlocked, and comes with a decent chance of getting a legendary piece of gear at the end. I got a two helmets and two torso pieces.

Not perfect, but the chance of getting something actually worth using makes things far more reasonable.
