Shogun: Total War 2
So, I didn't see anything yet about this so I decided we needed a thread!
I actually just recently heard about this from my friend. I've been a fan of Creative Assembly's TW series since the original Shogun and I have to say it played a large part in the formation of my RTS years growing up along with Brood War. I used to go to my friends house who had a computer that could play it and I would just play away when he was done! I've always thought that Shogun was my favorite if it had Rome's engine and now it's going to be even better. Unfortunately, I did not like Empire as much as I anticipated. Though, not because it's not a good game, but because I dislike gunpowder warfare. In Shogun you had gunpowder units but they could be utterly destroyed by warrior monks and they were fairly late and carried their own religious penalty typically. Anyway, enough of my rant about TW.
Honestly, the graphical update is nice but what I'm actually the most excited about is the integration of Rome+ MTW + Empire mechanics.
Without further ado, a litany of videos:
