[edit] Background

Based on Luo Guanzhong's historic novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the DYNASTY WARRIORS series of action games takes players back in time and onto the battlefields of Ancient China. In the game, players experience the thrill of fighting single-handedly against nearly endless legions of enemy soldiers in historic battles that shaped an empire.

[edit] Features

  • Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound
  • New voice option! Choose between English and the never-before-released Japanese with English subtitles.
  • Load times are significantly reduced. Spend more time in combat and less time at loading screens.
  • The largest Dynasty Warriors cast ever assembled. Six new Dynasty Warriors in all for a total roster of 48 playable characters, each with their own storyline and in-game events.
  • A completely revamped weapons system with a supreme arsenal of devastating weapons and new attacks. New Musou Rage, character-specific jump attacks, and blazing 9-hit Evolution Combos open the possibility for the previously unattainable 9,999 K.O.s!

  • New more intelligent bodyguard officers designed to help players face the greatest Tactical Action challenges to date.
  • An enhanced battlefield base system that challenges players' strategic decision-making in the midst of combat.
  • 38 completely redesigned maps, each 30% larger and with environments that have their own look and feel.
  • A vastly improved graphics engine that reduces fog, delivers rich detail in the characters and environments, and eliminates any drop in frame rate.

GameGrep is a good place, overall. Users can post video game related stuff, whether it's news or just a NSFW YouTube vid... but damn, it really shows what kind of shit other sites will write sometimes.

I'm sure glad the gaming community still has this outdated view of girls. I mean, even with all the statistics pointing to a growing female demographic, gamers still think we're mostly *bleep* so lacking in coordination that our gaming interests are restricted to the Wii or some music game. Okay, so music and dance games require a lot of coordination, but come on, we like a good shooter as much as anyone.

So out of frustration, I came up with an idea to write a list of games to play with your lover on Valentine's Day. It's on the front page right now, if anyone wants to take a look:
