@sukarestu There wouldnt be any blood on the Katana. This isnt kill bill. Realistically the speed of the blade prevents any blood from clinging to it, also it went through the table so the blood wouldnt be able to dribble along the blade either.
@JaJDoo Yeah they excluded them for Rome total war, didnt do much for the AI. So it really doesnt matter if they are in or not, except that alot of people like them. So removing them only alienates a fanbase and does nothing for the AI.
always felt these movies were unnecessary.. after a watching a few you just press escape and see the result... they could have used the time to program a good AI this time
Cant wait for this game but i was suprised to see how bad the assassin was, i expected him to fail. How cool will it be if the movie changes dependant onm level, and that was a level 1 animation? Sweet!
Lol and they call those ninjas Lets walk through some sleeping troops instead of maneuvering around them Kinda funny how he impales the generals head but theres no blood on the katana
Lmao, "professional assassin" my butt! though i guess its better then dropping a giant rock on someone lol.
@ActionManly and everybody else. I meant: halo reach intro commercial is the only one worth watching from all other commercials... I love the Total War series (not so much for empire...) and I like this little assasination movie. Hope I cleared things out... damn.
@thestrateger here are screenshots to give an idea of the world map http://www.pcgamer.com/2010/09/10/shogun-2-total-war-campaign-impressions/
I'm glad to see them bring back the videos. I love the one in Medieval 2 when the assassin is hiding in the barrel and pops up just long enough to get the job done. These videos really add substance and story to a great game. Looks good so far CA!
@GamerLegend10 It was a culture that believed in kicking the other guy awake before you fought him to death. Why not sleep well? Glad to see the Gesha, the closest thing to a WMD the first game had.
i really had hope that Creative Assembly implement Ninjas as a battle unit, too. Would be great to see them climbing the walls and falling in the backs of the defenders of one of the 3 new and improved fortress types. Well...seems things stay the same. But for the campaign map: GREAT! really, i can't wait for Shogun2 getting released. @maslesa89: dude...you obviously never played a Total War game before...one week LOL...seriously, if Shogun2 happens to be your first TW game at all, expect at least one week to get used to the game mechanics, and use the second week to flesh out the possibilities to start rolling through the campaign. TW is one hell of a thriling strategy experience like no other (with ups and downs from one TW game to the next) IMO theres is no RTS game that delivers such adrenalin rushes in battle liek TW games do (especially my fav Medieval 2 at the time)
These comedy assassination clips won't be funny after seeing them for the second or third time. I liked the old Shogun clips better so far.
i hope assasinations are easier in this game than rome and medieval 2. My assasins where so piss weak in the games, couldnt get a kill :(
@Dawn_oF_Doom, why the crap were you watching the vid then? Also - I came when I saw the campaign map.
I bet it will be bugged as hell like Empire TW, you invest 50 hours in a campaign, and suddenly you come across a campaign breaking bug that wont let you proceed. And Creative Assembly are infamous for not patching their games properly, usually their patches break the game even further. And they also abandon the game within a few months of release, moving onto their next project.
Looks good. it's a shame they changed the style from the chess pieces style of movement to this.. i hate the "you got 9 steps left!" thingy....
