With Total War: Warhammer throw Creative Assembly apart frayed military tactics in the trash and paves way instead of fireballs, zombie hordes and chaotic battles in the fantasy setting. Whether your life was marked by figure painting, and roll of the dice or tactical battles in feudal Japan, you will feel a fresh gust of romance between figure game Warhammer and the classic Total War formula. A fifth option, Chaos, offered pre-quarks, and will later be purchased separately. The people The Empire has a well balanced army and shrewd diplomats, and perhaps most like a traditional Total War faction. Orcs have to attack everything and everyone in order to satisfy his lust for battle and avoid internal conflicts. Besides the rivals you against direct when the game starts is also an even bigger threat in the form of Chaos - bloodthirsty worshipers of the dark gods who made it their mission to conquer and enslave the entire world.
After the somewhat wacky and wonderful news about the Polish bilmekanikern that 2016 still balances drive shafts on a Commodore 64, we just had to.Yep – we grottar us down in spelnostalgi again, and this time we set, for natural reasons, the C64:an in focus.Before we throw ourselves over our hot list, we want to deliver a statement.This classic actually made his debut on the odd computers BBC Micro and Acorn Electron, before it eventually found its way on to other computers.The Last Ninja was, dare we say, groundbreaking.The Last Ninja was the graphics well, it really felt like to be catapulted back to the feudal Japan , the music aaah, and the atmospheric story...
Team Ninja s ultra-challenging slasher will launch exclusively for PS4 on February 8, the developer has announced.Development on the much-anticipated title has just gone gold, meaning copies are now being printed and sent off to stores ready for release.Inspired by the likes of Dark Souls and Ninja Gaiden, Nioh splices the two together to form a dark, challenging adventure set in a twisted vision of Feudal Japan.The release date was recently announced via the game s official twitter account, which can be translated below:Games Editor Brett Phipps recently sat down to preview Nioh on PS4, and it seems he had a surprisingly great time.Here s what he thought:
Because 2017 does not come with enough of its own nightmares, Team Ninja gives us a Dark Souls/Bloodborne inspired game that borrows heavily from the developer's own experience with brutal difficulty with Ninja Gaiden and casts the whole thing in a dark and twisted image of Feudal Japan.I hate the idea that Dark Souls doesn't have an easy mode because it feels unnecessarily exclusive, but I suit up nonetheless.I profess that high-level Starcraft is a maddening experience the human brain was never meant to endure, but I will occasionally play on brutal and click my fingers off.Bloodborne remains the worst and best of it all for me: it nearly drove me crazy, and yet it stuck itself in my head more than any other game for years.I could never go back for the DLC, because I was never sure I was still quite the same person I was while I was playing Bloodborne.From what I hear so far, NiOh is harder than Bloodborne, more complicated than Bloodborne, and, maybe, more rewarding than Bloodborne.
As we are now onto our ninth edition, it felt right to do something to celebrate - and what better way than doing a whole article on freakin' ninjas?They were the scrawny underclass of feudal japan, not perceived as being of a good enough ilk to be samurai, and turned to covert warfare to do their damage.That hasn't stopped Hollywood and, more importantly, b-movie makers from liberally usimg ninjas in their oeuvre.They include such gems as: Ninja Operation: Licensed to Terminate, Ninja Powerforce, The Ninja Showdown, Cobra Vs Ninja... he truly is the granddaddy of Ninja-based shenanigans which is why three of the following movies are dedicated to him.If Harrison is the master, then Michael Dudikoff is his apprentice.American Ninja 2 The Confrontation
Ever wonder whether the best technology of feudal Japan could take out one of the best drones of today?Sometimes the technology we get to cover includes astonishing breakthroughs in AI that suggest the secrets of the human brain are finally in the process of being unlocked, and that we’re soon to live in a world populated by genuine artificial intelligence.Other times we write about rocket-powered katana swords slicing drones in half.Today is one of those “other times.”The creative destruction in question is the work of YouTuber David Windestal, who decided to not only build said rocket-propelled sword, but to use it to answer the age-old question: Who would win in a battle between a DJI Phantom drone and an ancient Japanese sword?“The idea behind the Rocket Knife series was to re-create the Mythbusters episode where they cut a car in half using a rocket sled,” Windestal told Digital Trends.

Paris Games Week kicked off today with Sony dropping a ton of new information on titles we've all been waiting for including Detroit: Become Human and The Last of Us Part II.We also got a look at a new IP coming from Sucker Punch Productions called Ghost of Tsushima.The reveal trailer does not tell us much other than the game will be set in feudal Japan and put players in the role of a samurai.The antagonist looks to be a mean and ruthless Mongol, razing villages to the ground or subverting them to his will.I'll admit that I'm a sucker for samurai and ninja games but I've not played one that I have really enjoyed since the Tenchu series.Ghost of Tsushima looks promising and hopefully, it can satisfy my itch.

This move has many fans raising their eyebrows.The first came out in 2007 and focused on the Third Crusade.It focuses on pivotal moments, like the Aaron Burr-Alexander Hamilton duel and President George Washington’s farewell address.I listen to a podcast called The Thomas Jefferson Hour, which humanities scholar Clay S. Jenkinson runs.He is also a historical actor and will take up the persona of Jefferson, portraying the founding father while discussing the events of his time and trying to give his perspective on our era.Some would say Feudal Japan (they’re still waiting), others wanted Ancient Egypt (last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Origins made that wish come true).
These can range from games like A Way Out that can only be played cooperatively, to the games in the Borderlands franchise that seamlessly integrate single-player, couch co-op, and online co-op into its campaign experience based on how you choose to play.Shogun 2 is a decade old, but its compelling setting (feudal Japan) and noob-friendly campaign scaling make it a must-play for fans of the series’ unique combination of turn-based realm management and real-time strategic combat.Its co-op campaign is considered a benchmark for the genre thanks to its alliance system and the fact that the battles are pretty fun to spectate.You can choose to compete with one another for control of Japan, but since it’s Mother’s Day we recommend playing on the same team and sharing your victories together.Best of all, if your mom gets really into it, the next entry in the series, Total War: The Three Kingdoms, drops on May 21st.Stardew Valley: As a single-player game, it captures all of the magic of the series that inspired it – Harvest Moon and Animal Crossings – and combines it with modern control and menus.

Netflix just released the first good look at Yasuke, its upcoming anime based on the true story of a Black samurai who lived in Japan during the 16th century. Despite the real-life source material, the show takes a few liberties with the story, as you can see in the fantastical first trailer.

But when a local village becomes the center of social upheaval between warring daimyo, Yasuke must take up his sword and transport a mysterious child who is the target of dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords.
