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?

    alimokrane @KORNdog: Trinity is still there sadly.. I actually want them to ditch supporting characters all together... Lara needs to be alone. That's what makes Lara who she is! (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth there's no way around the street-fighter-syndrome with ensemble movies, and some characters and parts felt just put in to keep the characters relevant/warm (hello Black P) Other than that it was great (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth his journey, while the other are mostly just popping in. Really great character and story-arc. For once a bad-guy with a good motive. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth watched Avengers 3 yesterday. Was better than expected as i'm not a big fan of royal rumble mashups. What held it all together was the story of Thanos. In many ways this is his movie as we follow (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that should at least push you forward and help you look past lara croft herself being lame. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i just want a better game than rise ended up being. hire some decent writers. ditch the trinity tedium. introduce some characters that are interesting. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: i get the impression we'll just get an extended Cgi trailer and gameplay won't be seen until E3. hope i'm wrong though. (7 Hours ago)
