A man from creative assembly getting is teeth kicked in by the AI in a skirmish game of Rome Total War 2 below. Soon this will be mine and yours if you chose to be a man about your computer gaming choices.
Note the buffing is more visible now (so you can track duration on screen rather than just seeing that it’s available again on your leaders), this may seem new, the buffing that is, but it’s been in the game for a long time, just not super visible.
I’m really looking forward to this game, probably more than any game since Torchlight 2 and certainly any strategy game. I really dug TW: Empire but just couldn’t get into Shogun all that much. Played through the campaign a bit, did the set piece battles but that was it. Usually I milk the Total War games for all they are worth and leave them a husk on the side of the road. I expect even with children and work and some various other responsibilities that this will happen with Rome Total War 2, and all will be right with the universe.
