Our PC videos of Shiness

Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom will finally be released next week, but we have already been able to play the game for 5 hours on PC. It is too soon to tell you what we think (and we're under embargo), but you can see the first 30 minutes of the adventure for yourself and tell us what you think. It is no surprise as we saw the game on several occasions in the past, but Shiness is no technical marvel. Still, its colorful world is pleasant to explore and the game runs smoothly in 4K (our videos were captured in 1080p but the game was running in 4K). Our main grudge with the visuals is the huge difference between the character design in the comic book cutscenes and the 3D models themselves.

don't care any about graphic quality (long, various gens development), i just want to play and feel like i'm playing a long lost dreamcast game (skies of arcadia, grandia 2, etc)

I really liked the trailers and gameplay I've seen so far. RPG with Naruto UNS like combat it seems to be at first glance. I might get this if it turns out good.

About the game


What's up?

    Sdarts Didn't Quantum Break and Sunset Overdrive sell well though? (1 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: and how do you know if a game will earn more than the costs of porting/optimizing/m anufacture/distribution ion to know it's worth doing? (1 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts And CoD will always sell well on XBox because many people associate CoD with the brand. And also have friends with whom they played for many years on X360. (1 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they know this. and so they stop bothering. if your userbase is only interested in forza, gears and halo. why bother making games like sunset overdrive and quantum break? (2 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts It's still crazy. Because Anime and even Manga are making such a huge success on the US. So you would think it at least has that user base. (2 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I guess in the end, if a XB1 port of your game costs less than the money you profit from sales, then financially it's worth it imho. (4 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's why even with the sales advantage of the PS4, COD still sometimes manages to sell more on the xbox. that's it's target demographic. a game like yakuza or ico? not so much. (4 minutes ago)
