Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War is a strategy videogame developed for the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. You can choose between two kingdoms, England or France, with their unique characters such as Edward the Black Prince or Jeanne D'Arc. Furthermore, it has more eye candy than Dynasty Warriors even if it is more a Kessen than anything else. Will be available November 2, 2007.

I played the Japanese demo and the cutscenes were pretty impressive. Wish I could say the same for the gameplay. Then again I had no idea what I was doing.

Does look quite bad compared to something like Ninety Nine Nights. That had shiny bummapped armor on at least twice that amount of enemies with rarely a hiccup. This has flat PS2 non-shader textures (I kid you not).

With games like these you either have to eat your next-gen hat and pull out the "its the game that counts" super special hat, or turn your back in disgust.

Though this is not the worst example in this genre, Dynasty Warriors deserves a beating more than this.

    Nietzsche What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (6 Hours ago)
  • Nietzsche
    Nietzsche @KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog They want you spending hundreds amassing a room full of dollar store garbage while you search out a t-shirt that actually looks like it wasnt designed by a monkey, (6 Hours ago)

    KORNdog I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (6 Hours ago)

    Nietzsche but I do think overwatch does it in a much less harmful way than most others (8 Hours ago)
