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.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (45 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (48 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (51 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (54 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (56 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: generally yeah. i mean, MS need their next gears of war-level success, even if it just becomes an annualized addition to their usual games. but it would be something. (58 minutes ago)
