Today we're going to show you a ninja assassination movie on the campaign map of Shogun 2: Total War.
Did you enjoy this video?
I need this game NOW !!! ):
awwwww those darn japanese and their sex/ninja jokes
Map now rotates 360 woot!!
Ah japenneses humor
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.
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.
That was sweet Jap humor right there. Nice video.
The samurai: they fight like champs and sleep like them too
@scradin as supposed to any other games where you control pixels who do things with other pixels ?
sweet i like the look of the campaign map
WOW a war movie game O_O i maybe will give it a shot of this game
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?
Kinda stupid.... it's just watching some pixel use some pixel to kill some other pixel(s)
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.
So glad they are bringing these in game clips back.
Having said that this one needs work!
@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.
This will be my favourite TW for years to come, I swear :D
@HarrymanGR Nope, though I've seen Naruto in advertisments. Is he also a terrible ninja? lol
the new cmap looks cool!
@thestrateger here are screenshots to give an idea of the world map
I love those movies. Can't wait to watch my ninjas fail! lol
Good stuff!! Cant wait!!!!
The campaign maps is soooo awesome!!!
@choonyos So you don't watch Naruto: shippuuden do you?
That has to be the worst ninja ever.
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!
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.
wow heavy sleepers
Was playing Shogun 2 when... I JI$$ED IN MY PANTS!
It looks so good. I wish I could see the map from a zoom out to get a better impression.
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)
the campaign map looks awesome!!
the assassination clip was really cool
I want this game!
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.
Waaaa!!! The graphic looks great! I hope the generals will be family members again.
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.
Nice move killing the generall, I like the game!!!
So... you hire the three stoodges as ninja assassins?
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....
Looks good game for week at most,than its gat boring.
Sick my next big game obsession
that ninja is a noob
