Well they released an update to DW9 today which allows you to switch from movie mode which is default to action mode which lowers the graphics but seems to have fixed the pop in issues it was having and general performance on the PS4. Gave it a try and performance is much better so seems like it was a case of just couldn't handle all the stuff it needed to generate at a time. Still got some bugs though... like summoning my horse only for it to spawn in the ground beneath me and get stuck in a swimming animation and siege battles are still pointless as whats the point of siege weaponry when you give all characters a grappling hook that lets them climb any wall you can just punch the castle officers in the face to capture it. Kind of rendering part of your game obsolete there.

 

Oh well with the performance now fixed the game is in a playable state now so going to at least complete the stories for my remaining few characters with Sima Yi, Lu Lingqi, Zhang Liao and Guan Yu down with Zhen Ji, Yue Ying, Sun Shang Xiang, Zhang Chanhua, Pang Tong and Gan Ning still to go.

Dynasty Warriors 8 XL mainly. Just couldn't continue playing DW9 as while it has one of the best versions of the ROTK story the technical issues and poorly designed open world stuff just made it more of a chore to play then a challenge. Also finally gotten around to giving Xcom 2 War of the Chosen a go and have to say the Chosen and other new stuff are making for a much more interesting play through though I find the Lost to just be more annoying then anything..

Trying to play Dynasty Warriors 9. Not sure why but man the performance on the standard PS4 is pretty mediocre and the English voice acting is... special. Only lasted two hours before deciding to switch to Mandarin.


I'm a big fan of the series... but I'm a bit iffy on this one. Would love to hear your opinion of it after a few days

 

 

Well I can tell you this much with the combat they've tried to do something new again but it just doesn't really work as you still have the basic attacks and musou attacks but the charge attacks now are done by holding r1 on the PS4 controller and then Square for a stun attack, Triangle for Air and X for a knockdown with Circle being the characters special move. Problem is that for Cao Cao at least who I am currently playing... there doesn't seem to be any difference between them in terms of damage or effect really with Stun being the most useful because it bloody stun locks them.

 

That and the performance hasn't gotten any better which isn't helping which is a shame as I think how they have done the open world thing is quite nice where you can choose to just rush the final battle but it will incredibly hard or do some side missions first to weaken them e.g. for the Yellow Turbans Zhang Jiao has a whole bunch of magical effects with him but you can head to the ritual sights at Pu Yang and Ye and take them out removing them and also defeat Zhang Bao and Zhang Liang who are attacking Dong Zhuo and He Jin's forces to get them to assist you as well.

 

Still up to Hu Lao Gate and currently blitzing through as the next chapter I get to unlock Lu Ling Qi and Zhang Liao are two of my favs and see how I go playing as them to see if that helps as yeah being limited to Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Sun Jian at the start... not the greatest selection.

The only word I can really use to describe MvCI is underwhelming.

 

Yeah I can go with that.

 

Mainly been playing Slay the Spire for the last few days and also a bit of the dungeon run in Hearthstone with silly decks. Though the lifesteal warlock one worked quite well with 2 artifacts doubling my health.
