Anybody try it?

I never played the Shogun 2, but I am enjoying this.

I prefer the interface to Empire Total War.

Now that this has been released, I am anticipating an announcement on what the next game will be..

Haven't played that DLC but i've played the piss out of shogun2. A lot of multiplayer.

There is a clan called Obama I may or may not have gone out of my way to wipe them out

A friend of mine loves the whole Total War series.

I want to play them, especially the Shogun 2 ones. I downloaded the demo from steam. Got my ass handed to me! Me and RTS just do not get along! Made me Sad cause the game just seems so deep and interesting. But I know it will frustrate the bejeezus out of me.

It just takes practice.

The economy (I thought) was easier in Empire to understand.

This...well, not so much.

Mother of God.


I was playing as Tosa, and I get my ass literally handed to me cause my opponent uses swords vs firearms.

My troops route within a matter of minutes fighting.

Firearm use in Shogun is tricky. They have to be placed right and be supported by melee troops of some kind.

Takes awhile to get it.

Does every line do the ability? Or only the first 2?

Oh. My. God.

I don't have the game, but I just started playing Avatar Conquest online in Shogun II.

Imagine my surprise when I come up against an army with muskets.
I noticed their unit names and I was like 'WTF... I don't know these units!'

I got my mainly ashigaru army's ass handed to me with superior units. Couldn't even get close to them before my unit broke!

Needless to say, I wasn't expecting integration between the old game and the new one.

There is an achievement if you beat a fall of the samurai with a vanilla shogun or rise of the samurai army.

I will say, that would be one of my most treasured achievement if I could do it!

Playing a second game..

And.. holy shit.

The Foreign Units / Ninjas / Geichas are way overpowered.

Had a unit steal half my guys, and then they came in and took over the city like there was no army.

My opponent had 4 surrounding my city and every time I used a foreign agent in trying to kill them, it would either not work or they would persuade him to join their side.

I guess you just aren't a persuasive leader.
