Shogun 2: Total Blimey That Looks Pretty


GameTrailers, who we do like to thank for their seemingly infinite video bandwidth, have snaffled the scoop on Shogun 2: Total War in-game footage, and I've posted it below. The video features The Creative Assembly's chirpy Kieran Bridgen and AI programmer Ingimar Gudmunsson talking through one of the real-time battle sequences. It shows off the new detailed unit models, the general's speeches, the massively detailed new battlefields and buildings, the weather effects, and, of course, lots of tiny men who won't be going home to their virtual wives at the end of the day.

You are going to want to watch this.
