@seeafish Some story elements carry over as far as I know, depending on what choices you made in the first two games. But the developer mentioned today that you're able to change past decisions by discussing your adventures with a bard near the beginning of the game.



ShogunRok commented on February's PlayStation Plus Freebies Will Be A...:

Hmmmm. I do think 2015 will be a decent year for Plus purely because the PS4 has a broader selection of games than it did last year. Whether we get something relatively big next month, though, we'll have to wait and see.



ShogunRok commented on Sit Back and Watch The Elder Scrolls Online's ...:

@Faruko Also worth mentioning that Bethesda didn't develop ESO. It's actually developed by ZeniMax Online Studios. I think it's safe to say that Bethesda is working on Fallout 4 right now, and has been since before ESO was announced.

Or at least, I hope so!

@teknium_ I honestly don't mind remasters as long as they're worth it. For example, I feel like GTAV on PS4 was done really well, but there are others that don't actually improve the game as much as you'd like.

Still, if I really like a game, I tend to play it a lot and stick with it, so I'd never argue about my favourites getting the remaster treatment.



ShogunRok commented on Oh No, the Terrible PS4 Themes Have Arrived:

I just find it brilliant that you can go on the PS3 store and see that over 1000 people have paid actual money for some of the worst avatars and themes you could possibly imagine. I think we should make a rush-job Push Square theme and live out the rest of our lives on the profit it generates.

@ztpayne7 It's fair enough if they wanted to encourage more stealth — I mean, AC has always been a bit easy as far as combat is concerned — but if that's the case, then why give us the option of lugging around heavy weapons and stuff?

I feel like a lot more could have been done to make the game customisable. Want to be great at stealth? Go for it, but you'll be bad at combat. Want to be able to take on whole gangs of bad guys with just your axe? Go for it, but you'll be crap at stealth. A bit more of a trade-off would have been appreciated, I think.

I think Ubisoft needs to scrap the current combat. It went from letting you be horrendously overpowered to being underpowered since enemies could shoot you in the back from off-screen. That, and it just feels clunky, even compared to Black Flag. I don't know why it was slowed down and made that much harder, especially when the game encourages you to choose your own style of play.



ShogunRok commented on DriveClub Was the UK's Best Selling Exclusive ...:

@eLarkos To be fair, Microsoft came in with the original Xbox, and like the GameCube, didn't come close to stealing the market from the PlayStation 2. Many would argue that Sony itself allowed Microsoft to gain massive ground with the Xbox 360, what with the PlayStation 3's relatively disastrous release period and the year-long head start.

Can't speak for Valve, but I don't see why it'd want to move into the console space right now — especially when the PS4 and Xbox One are fighting so fiercely for market share. Might happen in the next generation, but I'll believe it when I see it.



ShogunRok commented on DriveClub Was the UK's Best Selling Exclusive ...:

@eLarkos This argument is based on the idea that exclusives, first and foremost, sell consoles, though. And it's abundantly clear that for most people, they don't. Look at the top 5 games on this list — all of them are on PS4 and we can probably assume that they all sold best on PS4. These games are the lifeblood, and PlayStation is an established brand.

To say that the PS4's success hinges on its exclusives — after it's just sold so unbelievably well in its first year — is crazytalk.
