Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have the Dynasty Warriors itch and want some advice on which new one to pick up. The last one I purchased was Dynasty Warriors 4, so it's been the better part of a decade since the last. I've heard that 6 is a sin unto man and beast, but I think I want more of a change than just 5 offers. Alternatively, how are the Empires offshoots? Does the change in style make up for the lack of the cornball story or dance parties? I do consider those a plus.
Reviewers seemed to like Samurai Warriors, but were much less favorable to Samurai Warriors 2. Just the usual "robble robble, sequel's too similar" thing or what? Alternatively, how's Warriors Orochi in comparison to the rest? DWGundam's demo was really really awful, but if they polished things up in the sequel, then maybe I guess, although I prefer Zhou Yu and Masamune to the emo whiny Gundam bitches.
As a further final option, there's always Devil Kings, which I'm interested in mostly because of [VIDURL=""]the recent adaptation[/VIDURL], but totally throwing out everything and turning it into a bunch of luchadores doesn't really excite me. Basara 2's supposedly the awesome one anyway and that never made it to the US, luchadorized or otherwise.
If any one of you suggests God Hand, I swear to Zeus that I will put out a hit on your dog.
