Our PS4 videos of The Banner Saga

Our PS4 videos of The Banner Saga

Almost two years after its PC release, The Banner Saga has finally found its way to our consoles. As you probably know, the game received a very warm welcome at the time and it was only fair considering how interesting the gameplay mechanics and the story itself were. If you like strategy and if you like to influence the main plot with your choices, then look no further. From what we've seen, the controls have been well adapted to work perfectly with a controller, so make sure to check out our videos to see if the genre has a chance to appeal to you. Our only grudge with the game so far is that loading times are a bit too long and frequent. With the upcoming release of Invisible Inc. on PS4, it's great to see that strategy games are not only for PC gamers anymore.

I heard the loadings in console versions are kinda horrible. I liked this game on PC, through it wasn't that excellent. Hope they make the second better :)

Loading times are indeed a bit surprising, but after Just Cause 3, it feels like playing on a cartridge. :p

Is this game good for people who never got into rts games for whatever reason?I mean does it ease you into it and before you know it you're addicted.

Invisible Inc. seems to be more my thing but if you check our videos, you'll see that the game teaches you how to play step by step. It's more a tactical rpg (with turn based combat) than a real time strategy game.

    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (15 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (18 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (18 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (18 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (23 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (23 Hours ago)
