Because the suspension of disbelief isn't at all shattered by the fact that there are Vikings fighting Samurais in the first place.
hahah that is true. It reminds me of that Deadliest Warrior series..if you know it.

Looks like I totally missed this thread when it was first created.

Rock Paper Shotgun has just written about the game. The end product might be a nice arcadey game, probably one that will resemble War of the Roses and not be so rough around the edges. My only concern is that the price tag might end up being too high just like Saxon pointed out.

This might appeal to the dynasty warrior fans more than it would the average crpg player i assume, looking at the gameplay hes just mashing through a bunch of bots who have shields that do absolutely nothing. That already would kinda make it unimmersive. If it had bots that worked like warband bots that wouldve been cool, make them a bit sluggish but atleast make them do something.

On that topic, crpg combined with both bot armies and players wouldve been sick.

This game looks very good. Very visually appealing and fast paced.

But would I spend over 2000 hours in it like I did in Mount & Blade: Warband? Fuck no.

Don't buy it in my opinion, save your money for M:BG & Bannerlord.

Another reason why i wish Battle of Europe mod had lasted, for just the couple of weeks that it was populated there were huge battles with 100 bots per team and like a dozen human players. Each player commanded a small contingent of 10-20 bots and it was truly epic. Lining up your ranged across the battlefield or charging along with your infantry...

It was especially fun since players could easily blend in if they tried but you were constantly looking for irregular human-player movements that would give the enemy away and let you hunt them (since a human player can make mincemeat of bots)

Maybe one should start a thread asking for something like this, but then again, that takes a lot of coding i believe (unless they have some leftovers from the commander mode)..

The problem with melee fighting in multiplayer games is that it's a triangle with those 3 corners:

Code: [Select]
            Looks cool
          /           \
         /             \
        /               \
    Is fun ----------- Player skill matters           

You can shift the focus around, but so far I have not seen one that can fulfill all three.

For M:BG, we are striving to get all three, but our focus is in the lower middle.

Hopefully Bannerlord will get it right  :lol:

I am only getting it if it comes at a reasonable price like Warband did or WotR and Chivalry did. There is no way I am paying triple A price for another arcadey medieval war game.

Playing Warband before all these new Medieval combat titles really does ruin all of them. Just watching 5 seconds of that video and I can already dismiss it.

Also what the hell these models have tiny heads.

It's easy to take Warband for granted with it's comparably shitty graphics and kinda lolzy animations but years later we still havent seen anything live up to it

The worst thing is that it takes about 10 minutes in the SP tutorial to figure out that Warband's combat system has unbelievable depth. All it takes is actually having people play it.
