Dynasty Warriors 8 PC: A Case of NBA 2K14

Oh what a disappointment. Today was supposed to be a glorious, glorious day with the arrival of Tecmo Koei's  Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition on Steam but instead, it became a day of lie and deceit. Despite sharing the same title from the PlayStation 4 release of the game, the Steam release is merely just a port of the PlayStation 3 build without all the fancy new lighting, intricate character model improvements, and bumped up textures of the PS4 version. You would think that it would be easier for them to port from the PS4 build. What a monumental failure. Perhaps this is why they are so willing to release this mighty game from the legendary series on Steam?

Ready to go blind? Click here to see the horrifying screenshots from this version of the game.

Update Note: 11:42pm - As you may know from the above paragraph, I was very distraught that Tecmo Koei failed to capitalize on the PC to empower a PS4 port of the game. The spouse noticed my utter disappointment and offered to assist me in getting the PS4 version of the game to make me feel better. The pain is still there though but this helps a lot honey! I love you.

Oh well, at least my PS4 will get even more play time now that I have this game.

The PC version of DW8 has been out for quite some time in Japan, thus it would be more sensible to bring THAT up to date to XL rather than making a new port altogether. Plus, screenshot have been out for a while, so I don't know what made you think you'd be getting the PS4 version.
