Too bad 90% of them you cant play as. oh well sooner or later there will be a "Unlock all factions" mod again
How similar are the tactical battles to Empire Total War? Any significant changes aside from call-in artillery?
They'll be released later as DLC no doubt like the Shogun 2 preorder factions.
I much preferred it in the older Total Wars where you unlocked a faction by defeating them. (Or editing a file)
Another 5 gig patch...you've got to be fucking kidding me. Stuck with 100kb internet atm and I have no idea what my download limit is.
Would anybody like to help me out on getting Shogun 2 The Fall of The Samurai? I have exactly $18.95 left on my card and if you sign up through this link http://www.greenmangaming.com/?gmgr=kewuqusi on Greenmangaming and buy anything worth $2 or more , we both get a credit of $2.
Fall Of The Samurai is also only $19.79 on that site btw. I hate begging but seeing that I'm only less then a $1 from getting it and I don't get paid till another month makes me sad. Also if you like I can give you a copy of CSS for a thank you gift.
That unfortanute chap right there was the Tsonwani Daimyo. He begged for peace 3 times before I took the pictured city, because I had spent 20 turns building up my economy and I wanted some action. He counter attacked with a bigger force while the castle was at 100% damage caused by bombardment a few turns before, so I was just defending a ruin. I beat him anyway thanks to the Yari Ki routing a load of his militia and the fact that all of my Line Infantry were vets.
Except you can't strap a cannon to a horse.
So I just had my FIRST naval battle on Fall of the Samurai. I was about to take out the last enemy ship with my torpedo boat until I found out you can control the ships with third person too!
as soon as the torpedo was about to hit the ship. I got the Battlefield 1942 trailer straight into my head.
go to around 1:30 if you never watched the trailer/intro

I bought every single fucking wooden frigate I could, and every ironclad I could. (For a navy of 12 heavy bastards)
This navy proceeded to move outside a coastal town, which I besieged with an army consisting half of armstrong guns.
When I started the battle, I used my naval strike on the enemy army.
My computer froze for about 5 minutes, and the enemy lost 1000 men.
Also the general of this army owns an accordion and a pickelhaube. He sits on a hill playing it as 100s of shells rain down on the enemy army and the US Marines mow down any survivors with 102% accuracy rates and not needing to reload.
This is the future of warfare.
Very Hard Difficulty
Enemy arrives at my port with 3 Ships.
I attack with 4 ships.
2 of his ships explode in combat.
I still have all of my ships.
Battle over, Heroic Victory.
He magically still has 3 ships.
Not to mention every naval combat I've fought in my campaign consisted of the AI retreating to the corner of the map, hugging the boundary and withdrawing if I began to win.
Fools think they can hide, pfft.
I think this new installment is just ridiculously fun because of the amount of pure, unadulterated DEVASTATION you can rain down upon your enemies.
Also, when was the Maxim machine-gun invented?
So after loading up shogun 2 after the update for Fall of the Samurai, it takes a couple of minutes to pass the splash screen with the logos, choosing DX11 or 9 makes no difference. Anyway to fix this? because I'm pretty sure before the update it loaded up a lot faster and didn't take minutes every time I opened it.
Playing siege battle,
outnumbered three to one
kill about half of the enemy force before they corner and try to kill my avatar
down to just him, no body guards
pulls out pistol
lucky shot, kills enemy general
entire enemy army routs.
He raged pretty hard at that.
well i haven't played the campaign yet, but have spent 12 hours on multiplayer, so basically I have armstrong cannon's and French Marines (Royal Marines are the last to unlock) while most other people have shitty spear armed peasants and terrible line infantry.
I have decided this is the theme my general plays.
When this tune plays, the enemy know they are to die. They can only make their peace with their god, put their sword to their stomach, and pray they die before the shells land.
Wow so judging from the thread they really did this expansion right.
Which is funny because I'm pretty sure they hadn't made a decent expansion since medieval 2.
I spent a whole 2 minutes laying out my army for a battle, and then after pressing the "Start battle button" nothing happens.
Damn this inconvenience!
How is fall of the samurai in comparison with n:tw?
Finish 25gb download and installation

The AI in FoTS is brilliant, I love it! Everytime I lose feels great.
Hmm. I don't really ever feel like installing Napoleon. Empire and Darthmod UC has superior scope anyway. I just wish we could get a global mod for Napoleon so i could enjoy the improved mechanics.
The modding scene never really recovered since Empire. No one is doing total conversions anymore... as in different eras and different factions. It's all just retreads of what's already there. Dull as fuck.
