Our PC videos of Shiness

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?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth EA announced today that a Battlefront II story trailer for the single player campaign trailer is coming tomorrow.. nice timing (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And while there may be a nugget of truth in there, people are DEFINITELY jumping to conclusions. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: Yea.. but what's not as obvious to people is that their PR wasn't for the benefit of consumers. It was spinning this for their shareholders. (3 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And as usual.. our analysis is dreadfully misinformed anyway (taking this back to Visceral): [url] (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (6 Hours ago)
