Good as new.


Game looks pretty sweet. Seems to be running on the same engine as Hyrule Warriors? At least, it looks very similar.

Most definitely, if there's one thing Omega Force know how to do it's reuse poo poo.

Hello? Can you hear me? ...Perhaps if I shout? AAAAAAAAAH!


Anyone not keeping up with FE warriors, the battle system seems to be standard DW-style combat, with up to 4 characters playable in one mission. You can pair up two of them on the field to have an assist attack available and have double super attacks.

And stuff like Mission Start and the level up screen can be turned off.

They introduced like 6 characters out of assuming 30.

No, the game starts halfway through a campaign so they've all died to a single arrow.

Why, yes, I do like Kirby games.


Which of the Musou games do you think had the best career mode, in a 'start as just this guy and rise to the top' sort of way?

I always really liked DW4XL's version. It was my first Musou game though, so that may be nostalgia talking.

Musou doesn't actually do that really, its factions typically and you rotate across its units, at least in modern Musou games.

The only Musou game that I've played that can possibly let you do that is DW8:Empires.
It's really good though. Give it a shot.

Yes, the Empires games can often let you accomplish that much.

Is there anything to that game besides being a long sanada version of Samurai Warriors 4-II?

Structurally it has a lot more in common with anime Musou games where you're playing through a single story rather a bunch of interconnecting ones. It has some semi-open maps which unfortunately are mostly only used to grind crafting mats and battles are split into multiple stages and certain things you do in one stage can affect your tactical options in the next, which is pretty cool.

Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 is a career mode game right?

Yes

E: Well it's more like the extra mode of SW4 but a bit more fleshed out.

DON'T get SW: Spirit of Sanada on PC though. It's a REALLY bad port.
Easily the worst port of any Warriors game on PC which says a lot considering the history Koei Tecmo has with PC ports.

It ran fine for me once I set my laptop to not use the integrated graphics card.

Define "fine".
Because I was getting 40 fps in the town on lowest settings at 1080p.
That should not happen on a GTX 1060.

I've had no problems with Spirit of Sanada on PC, but I also turned down a few of the graphics settings. It's been fun, I like it.

The god rays were a super killer of the framerate. They don't even look that great. Turned them off and I was able to turn ambient occlusion back on. Also, I read that supposedly towns are locked at 30 anyway, but I don't know whether that's true or not.

The most destructive supervillain of all time...Professor Chaos!


as long as it's got more replayability than Spirit of Sanada, I'll give it a shot. 20-25 to finish the game and maybe 50 hours total for platinum is way too short for a musou game.
