Total War: THREE KINGDOMS

Woooe i've thought for a long time that Total War couldn't do anything that's not already been done, instead bring out sequels.
How the fook did i not think of the three kingdoms period
after that was literally my childhood playing dynasty warriors on the playstation 2 constantly. Can't wait too see more!!

everyone kept saying china and i never though it was remotely likely

alot of chinese history is pretty fictional afaik, kinda like saying the bible/jesus is historical.

i wasn't interested in warhammer but totalhammer was a very fun game. so i will reserve judgement until gameplay but I'm so far pretty disapointed

I wanted systems more realistic than warhammer, not 1 man heros taking on whole unit. I wanted population, social classes meaning limited recruitment etc. basically depth where warhammer made everything fun but too simple.

instead it seems the old total war style of games has been abandoned except for in the new attila reskin, which might be fun but isn't a whole big new game like 3 kingdoms.

The three kingdoms era has been heavily romanticized but the historic part is very well known, separate from it and available.

history can be well known, but still not have reliable enough sources to be what likely happened. i know thats true of much of history but only the chinese were writing about the chinese.

i do accept i might be entirely wrong since im the opposite of an expert, but thats just my impression

Hurry up and do Napoleonic again so I can use Nelson's ultimate "Ship Buster" move. A giant claw fires from his hand and destroys an enemy ship instantly! The cooldown's pretty rough though so it's balanced.

I really liked Empire Total War. Even riddled with bugs it was a blast. I wish they would do a new version of that time period.

If they make a Total War flavored ROTK it will be excellent.

Not a pike &  musket (post-medieval, pre-imperial , not ever covered before), as some of us hoped? Sigh... this is sad news. Good thing there are other games to look forward to in the next few years.

Also... I can understand the sentiments of people who are actually genuinely excited about this installment, i really can. Good for you. But to me this way they've taken just screams commercialization. It's like i can imagine a group meeting, a sitdown with the devs and some sega officers where they discuss this. Hey, TW:China is the next best thing since sliced bread! Less effort to put in since it's pretty much within the borders one cultural (or at least racial) group, thus less diversity to work on. There's also less effort required for actual historical homework and research both for previous reasons as well as the reason this seems like it's gonna be a heavily romanticized version of that time period.

And last but not least... monetization. A potential huge client pool called China + a reason to put in as many fucking hero units as DLCS as possible... there we go. Perfection. Nothing can't go wrong since most people will be curious about this new setting anyway, not realizing how much they may have actually lost on with the possible other options for new, untouched historical periods and settings.
Shame.

Thank Buddha it is the three kingdoms and not some gay euroshit or anime again. You eurocentrists and anime-loving weaboos can go be butthurt but I will gladly pre-order this masterpiece in the making, like why would you idiots want ANOTHER fucking game set in europe.

"but dude this is totally different than the other 28 games set in europe because this time your army will have gay squads with long phallic objects poking the buttholes of the enemy until your musketeers put them out of their misery"

Yeah man that sounds like a blast especially when every european nation has the same fighting style and the same set of mercenary armies, add to this the fact their style of fighting is just to stand still and shoot at eachother with the occasional buttpoking. What you get are monotone battles with no variety led by rapacious kings (totally unique) and fought by faceless soldiers.
Meanwhile in motherfucking three kingdoms the story goes as following;

The crumbling Han dynasty has given rise to a most ignoble tyrant, Dong Zhuo, whose power was gained through opressing the good people of China. Three noble heroes with unyielding conviction swore an oath under the gods to end Dong Zhuo's tyranny and restore China once again. What follows are battles of epic porportions with swords clashing, shields bashing, arrows flying, FUCKING CHERRY BLOSSOM EVERYWHERE, Lu Bu kicking balls and Guan Yu eating eyeballs, a time where legends are born, the time of the three kingdoms!


Compare that to the oh-so-interesting story of albert einstein Gustav albert;

"ok so the Habsburgers are waging war because they want money against the anti-habsburgers who also want money, this makes me want to join the conflict because I also crave money. Question is how do I get my people to support my cause, hm... I guess I'll just call the pope a devil and tell the folks at church mass how evil the baby eating chatolics are, I am a genius rofl. This will give me a small amount of swedish soldiers however they ain't cut for war, the gay factor required to be a pikeman is definitively there but they lack buttpoking experience. I know! I'll hire some germans as they are known professional homos and some skirt-wearing scotts too! These gays-for-hire won't be cheap but by the time this war is over I will be stacking bills."

Sometime later in Lützen...

"The Krauts have deployed their troops in one big horizontal line, to counter this I will also deploy all my troops in one big horizontal line and tell my men to thrust forward full speed."

Some gay buttpoking later...

"wow this is fucking boring I guess I'll take all my cav on the right and just charge the enemy blindfolded because 17th century warfare lol, I mean what could go wrong?"
(click to show/hide)

What a fucking loser


You all know of the hero mechanic successfully implemented in the total war warhammer franchise so why would you waste such a great thing in a setting without ANY famous warriors, like name one famed warrior I bet you can't. Meanwhile the three kingdoms has such an abudance of them just look how many potential heroes there are:
