Pretty impressive... wow Creative Assembly is kicking ass on PC so PC gamers can't complain about games that make their rigs cry.

I wonder how much memory this game consumes... I would wager it would need a minimum of 1.5GB of graphics ram but maybe I'm wayyyyy too optimistic here.

Nice physics and awesome water, fire, smoke, etc specially considering the bang up job they did with their previous game Total Shogun.

Enough hype. Show me actual gameplay. Then I can judge.

That was actual gameplay... its obvious you have no clue how the Total War games play.

You manage troops.

If you want to BE a TROOP or HERO you play Dynasty Warriors games.

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)

    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (2 Hours ago)
