Moby Poll: Do you pre-order games, buy at launch, or wait?
From the Opening CGI
A fresh start
It's actually a great and interesting time in Japanese history, the rise of Oda Nobunaga.
A LOT of this game is made up of Akira Kurosawa pastiches. Here we meet C-3PO and R2-D2.
Ugh, you wanna get philosophical, old man?
Sneaky radish stealing.
50% of the games scenes are just this - staring at your character.
I love the sound that makes.
Move skills, you learn them as you gain experience with a weapon
The Japanese actually did wear purses around the neck
Meeting the disgraced Samurai group.
Maybe it was more poignant in Japanese.
Using the blunt side of my sword to knock out some guys.
The 100 enemy challenge!
For some reason he's upset I didn't kill him.
A typical result for me.
Starting again, trying the outfit and face of the first games character.
A doting companion.
Well that's romantic.
Sword in one hand, onion in the other.
Kids are kids.
I love her haori jacket.
She's my favorite character.
Just... a crazy costume.
There is a kitty in each of the games in the series.
Smart kid! Got life figured out early.
What a whiny kid.
Again, just waiting in silence.
A surreal job.
Let's pound some mochi.
My bodyguard is ready to jump in.
Oh? Care to join me?
Another side game. Try not to get your head chopped.
The graphics are alright, I guess.
The intro of which I honestly didn't understand that much.
The battle is over and not many survived.
Those guys are there for you to save your progress.
Those guys are looking for trouble.
BAM! You're dead. No, not really. I used the blunt side of my weapon.
Talking to a teacher
The shot alone shows you how great the possibilities are in this game.
My home, my castle
Selling my poison mushrooms to that poor merchant.
My sword is broken but I could still kill you, you hear?!
Most automatic events allow you to intervene either by attacking or by kissing the floor (=begging).
You heard? That guy on the right sells accessories.
Slashing some fearsome tuna
One of the many, many and very very long skill trees.
Actually, I do. The bigger they are, the easier they fall.
Meet my partner for the nights
That girl has some serious issues - still I'm trying to bang her.
Awesome fight scene coming up!
You can only carry three weapons at a time - and you can find over a hundred of them...
Another mini-game: ring the bell
I could attack the Ouka Clan right now. If I win, the game would end quicker.
He's forging a new sword for me. What a nice guy. Oh wait, I paid a huge amount of money for that...
I'm dead :(
I guess I've to work on that Samurai Rank a little more before I let myself be killed again...
