randomthefox asked: Have you done/ever considered doing reviews for the various dynasty warriors or other Koei games, or at the very least a list or some such of your particular favorites? Sorry if you've already gotten this one of course, but I'm curious.

the-archlich:

There are one or two I’ve thought about doing some kind of review for, but there aren’t really many Warriors-related games that I’m all that passionate about.

I do get very passionate about the characters, the general story, and the overall concept of the Three Kingdoms, which is why I talk about it so much. But as far as individual games go, I’m not super passionate about most of them.

I do have a few favorite Warriors-related titles, though, and a few that I despise. Maybe I will talk about them all more in depth sometime, though it’s been a very long time since I’ve played some of them.

Oh shit, I totally forgot about Pokemon Conquest.

God I love this game.

When I first heard that they were going to make a game combining Samurai Warriors/Nobunaga’s Ambition with Pokemon, I thought it must be a joke, because it sounded like a terrible idea. And then, as time went on and I learned more and more about the game, I realized that it was actually a pretty damn good idea. I started looking forward to the game. And when it was finally released, it was exceeded all of my expectations.

Because of the structure of Pokemon Conquest, it’s pretty much entirely free of the things that usually irritate me in Koei’s games. I can build an army with people I like and ignore characters I find annoying. Battles are fun, and important fights over cities/kingdoms are unique and interesting. It’s really satisfying to gather a strong army made of your favorite warriors and Pokemon. And there’s a whole hell of a lot to do after you beat the main story. Every character gets one or two shorter stories dedicated to them, and there are some really fun ones to download as well. Nobody gets left out, but you can also avoid the people you want nothing to do with.

What really sells it are the little details, though. Little things like the fact that Kanbei and Hanbei are more powerful when they’re together, or that Ginchiyo and Muneshige need to be kept as far apart as possible. Or the fact that Magoichi gets stronger if he’s around literally any woman.

This game also deserves praise for the fact that there are over three dozen female officers - which is vastly more than you’ll find in any other Koei game, ROT3K included. As far as I know, all of these women are based off of figures from that era of Japan’s history. You’ll probably never more than 3 or 4 of them in any other game Koei makes, but there are plenty in Pokemon Conquest. You can probably thank the Pokemon people for that, because it sure isn’t Koei’s doing.

Pokemon Conquest is probably the best thing Koei has been involved with in years. It’s an amazing game and I would love to see more of this. A sequel is possible (some characters such as Masanori, Mitsunari, and Kiyomasa were left as children while some other late-comers weren’t present) and I’d love a Three Kingdoms version as well. Or really anything. It’s a great concept that was perfectly executed.

Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made

Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.

He proceeded to show it to us in class.
