Shogun Total War

Shogun Total War was released June 13th 2000. This game had more memory than many other PC games combined! In short nothing less than a true gaming PC was going to be able to run this at full graphics and even then it would be a strain on your computer system. This is a turn based RTS game in which one controls dark age Japan with armies of samurai. Just imagine as the game loads and you find your self in control of an ancient japanies city building communities, armies, forging trading between other warlords, and even hiring ninja’s for sabatog and assassination.  This game was nothing short of amazing with hundreds of possible hours of different and unique gaming options. Just imagine as your army comes on to the field and you movie toward the enemy castle. Your troops are scaling the walls, as the enemy archers fire down upon your ever advancing troops. Some of your men break moral and begin to run when your general mounted on horse back rides in and rallies your troops and they finally scale the wall each unit entering unique combat between the enemy troops. I’d give it 8.5 out of 10 stars and recommend it highly!.

Cap Com or Crap Com?

Lately I have been reading a lot about a new game that Cap Com has released  Called “Resident Evil Raccoon City. For the Xbox 360, and the PS3. This game was supposed to allow earlier Resident evil fans to “relive” some of their favorite moments of the classic games with better graphics and an all new untold story from the bad guys side. It also tried to bring in new fans by following the latest trend of action shooters. Which disheartened many fan’s because the earlier games were all about a “horror survival aspic of the game as well as puzzles. Which this game lacked much of. Many have argued that this game “spoon fed” the player every step of the way. Not only did it cause much grief in the way the game was created by how it was marketed! They released the game at the Usual retail price of 60$ Then not long after the game was released they began to make DLC (Downloadable content) Available for purchase and then did one more by give you the first download “free.” But here’s what actually happened. They took the disc and split it in half giving players only half the game they paid for. The other half they turned into DLC in which on must pay to purchase the rights to part of the game that is already preloaded into the disc! This is an all time and new low even for some video game companies. Many are so frustrated with this that they have gone as far as referring to Cap Com as “Crap com” and threatening to quit their beloved hobby of gaming all together. Over all I would rate this game as being 4 out of 10 stars in the worth buying category.
