Shogun 2: Total War Trailer, Q&A

The Shogun 2: Total War Q&A on GameShark chats with Creative Assembly's Craig Laycock about the upcoming real-time/turn-based strategy sequel. Topics include reasons for the sequel, scaling back a bit from recent Total War games, advantages of the feudal Japanese setting, advancement, hero units, diplomacy, clans, religion, siege warfare, economics, naval warfare, and more. We also have a new trailer featuring action from the game and its predecessors, which is embedded below.

If you watched the Siege battle cast, you can see that the AI is still brain dead. The guy playing was acting like a total twit (why put my archers under cover of the battlements? I'll have them stand out in the open and watch overwhelming numbers climb a wall and charge them! Oh ha ha ha, the AI is tricky, it killed my archers, I didn't expect that!) and he still managed to hold off being slaughtered for a good 10 minutes.

Gotta love that feigned surprise also when flanked because he basically just sat on his hands the whole battle. OH NO - I R FLANKED??? Yes, even a slug can flank a rock! \(0_o)/

I love the TW series but since I love it, I've been through all the games and the PR rhythm that is CA. Gonna get it, but it's the same song and dance.
