    what in the actual fuck. have you watched Three Kingdoms live action series? they don't wield tonfas.
    Dynasty Warriors is being a little closer to the source material and a little closer to how war was fought and weapons officers actually wield (which realistically had basically standard swords, spears and bows), and you are crying it's not as immature as it used to be.

    I've read the fucking novel, of course they didn't have fight with fucking Tonfas and Magic scrolls that summoned Sun Tzu's army...Christ idk how to even argue this lol...

    It's just the same thing they did with 6 that no one liked, and whenever they make DW10 it'll be back to unique weapons with some other aspect of the game regressed...

    they were better off just recycling DW8 combat system and weapons, that way they just add new weapons and moves to the newcomers, and there would be no clones to complain about.

    see that's what happens when you reboot a battle system too much, it forces developers to cut corners.

    shared weapons and movesets don't bother me. but if I was developing DW9, I wouldn't update the battle system if it required sacrificing weapons/movesets, since the fanbase over the years made it clear they hate that and would hurt the game's reception in the long run.

    and the alternative is unthinkable. DW6 cut characters and it was the worst decision they never made, so thankfully they vowed to not cut characters ever again,
    and its actually better to sacrifice weapons and movesets than characters,

    however DW spoiled the fanbase too much with unique weapon per character, they have to create a new spinoff series or IP if they wanna be more bold with their reinventions, just like when DW branched off from ROTTK strategy games to introduce a new genre and style of Three Kingdoms concept.

    that's so great there are restaurants and they are adding more immersion to towns besides being item/weapon shops.
    would be nice if there is a cutscene reserved for eating animations like Monster Hunter World canteen sequence, though even without that, still cool they are taking steps to the nourishment side of open world lifestyles. Empires can expand upon things.

    also a reminder of the great open world size estimations

    It's okay. The roster is varied enough, but the combat doesn't have the same punch that you expect from the Omega Force DW games, and normal attacks are quickly outpaced by the Extella Manuevers (attack chain that also hits enemies around you, freezes time, KOs tons of mooks and severely damages LTs and bosses). If you like the Fate source material it's worth checking out if you can get it cheap, but otherwise, I'd say to pass on it.

    Thank God. If anything it feels like the VAs got worse over the years. Save for a few characters the English voices were cringeworthy in 8.

    ah I'll avoid that video perhaps, wanna keep the exploration fresh.

    Samurai Warriors 5 could be soooo gorgeous being open world. SW4/E still have the greatest graphics among musou games. a Warring States Japan SW5 that's fully open world would be jaw dropping. though the next SWEmpires should be more roleplaying based (like DW7E and DW8E), instead of micromanaging a clan. people should be able to start as a peasant, start their own bandit group, or get recruited into a clan and work up the ranks. and have option to start as a ruler as well.

    New JP vid about the combat system.

    Renders of the UNPCs.......
    kakouki.jpg
    Xiahouji - Xiahou Yuan's neice and Zhang Fei's wife. In the ROTK she was abducted by Zhang Fei at 12/13 years old and made his wife. Likely Zhang Bao's and Xingcai's mother in the game.
    Weapon is Sword + Shield


    touhaku.jpg
    Dong Bai - Granddaughter of Dong Zhuo. She was given her passage to adulthood ceremony and a grand title at an unceremoniously young age. Spoiled as hell.
    Weapon is Flail

    kayu.jpg
    Hua Xiong - Served Dong Zhuo. He stalled the Allied Forces from reaching Luoyang, until he was bested by Guan Yu.
    Weapon is Club.

    enjutsu.jpg
    Yuan Shu - Half-brother to Yuan Shao. After Dong Zhuo's demise, he declared himself emperor of the short-lived Zhong Dynasty, and was then branded a traitor to the Han.
    Weapon is Kris(??)

    Yuan Shu looks very uninspired, like a bootleg Zhang Jiao. I expectedd Koei to make him look more regal.

    Also I'm real interested to see how they are going to introduce Xiahouji with her fucked up history and all.

    Hua Xiong looks beastly, shoulda been playable.

    fucked up history? her fucked up history is also Zhang Fei's fucked up history. though DW history =/= original history. if people judge DW characters based on their original history, and don't want Xiahouji to be added, then Zhang Fei shouldnt be in the games either since he's the one that did the crimes committed, whether Xiahouji is in the games or not. Those not wanting the girl to be added to the story, but allowing a kidnapper that forced an underage girl into marriage; a rapist, into the games and roster, have no business condemning Xiahouji from being included in Dynasty Warriors games, without demanding Zhang Fei to be banned first from the series before Xiahouji.

    anyways Xiahou Ji profile in english, as well as other profiles. Koei did well remaking her story, now sensitive people fearful of history's realities can't complain

    If they are going the Season Pass route then they should offer more than 3 damn weapons. That's not going to make a difference with a roster of about 90. They could of at least gave us 10. :neutral:

    hey. name a open world game that gives you 90 playable historical/story characters in the base game, not counting DLC.
    DW9 already has more unique playable and personality filled characters than all Zelda games combined.

    people are too entitlement obsessed and penny pinchers to understand how costly videogame development is rising these days.
    new games should be costing $100 minimum these days, there's too much generations of them only costing $60.

    videogames are a luxury, if you too cheap to buy DLC you want, your loss.

    and the season pass is much more than weapons. just purchase what you want to use.

    Anyways I'll just purchase the characters/scenario pack. that is awesome the UNPCs become playable, and have their own scenario, event and actions!! that really is giving the extra characters red carpet treatment compared to games that just add DLC characters and that's it. I wouldn't even mind if the DLC just made them playable with no extra story attached and no new weapons, but the extra scenarios, events and actions are a plus!

    Dynasty Warriors 9 is gonna be one of the GREATEST masterpieces of all time!!
