I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment.
I joked in my review for the bizarre...
Shogun: The ultimate position in Japan's warrior culture. The Shogun ruled all of Japan, and all had to pay him tribute. It was only a matter of time before the real-time strategy genre focused on Medieval Japan, but we're glad it did. Reminiscent of Myth, Shogun: Total War is a beautiful game that truly captures the carnage of ancient warfare.
Conquer all of Japan province by province as your technology improves and your army grows. This demo is basically a training mission that teaches you the basics of control and lets you lead your troops into battle. May your honor guide you.
