    Hello names Moe, but Momo will do! anyway im from hawaii, and been gaming ever since i can remember. While i have had steam i am usually not a pc gamer, usually just console (wii/ps3/xbox) or handhelds (3ds/psp) But now i want to try and get into pc gaming. This game (Total War: Shogun 2) has always been on my checklist for games as i love Samurai in general. Finally was able to pick up the game for 7$, plus all the dlc. Going to start playing it soon, cannot wait for the Fall of the Samurai DLC!

    Longtime Total War player, new poster here on the TW boards. Nice to meet you guys! I started back with Rome: Total War when it first came out years ago, and have been following the series ever since, all the way up to Shogun 2 most recently.

    Hi I'm Tom or Hunter. I started off with Rome, then got Empire, Shogun II, Medieval II and then Napoleon, I know a weird order. Play Empire, Napoleon and Shogun II the most, just cos I love the graphics and gameplay. Prefer SP to MP but thats just me.
    Anyway hi all.
    Rome II is making a comeback :)

    Welcome Lapwig!

    You say you cant get into the Shogun TWs, but love ETW and NTW.

    I highly recommend Fall of The samurai to you as it is an easy learning curve for NTW players

    Thank you Half Life Expert. I think part of the problem is I need to dedicate more time to Shogun and less to Empire and Napoleon to give it a fair chance. Hard to do though!

    Greetings.

    My name is Ruben. I am rather new to the Total War series, having just bought Shogun 2. Been reading up on strategy though, so as soon as the patch is done I'll get to try my hand at conquest.

    I usually play RPG's with a heavy emphasis on story-telling, like The Witcher and Jade Empire. Also a big fan of Morrowind.
    My expeditions into strategy territory have been far and few in between. I have some experience with Age of Empires and Heroes of Might and Magic, but that's about it. I'm a very willing and quick student, though.

    Interests include reading, writing, fencing and Wing Chun. I mainly write short stories and poetry, but you might find a novel with my name on the cover a few years from now.

    Hoping to learn a lot from you all.

    but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men,
    for they may act their dream with open eyes,
    to make it possible."

    @Popeanator:

    Welcome aboard. Take a look in the support threads, there's some helpfull stuff there. Other things you can try are to 'verify game cache' in Steam properties for the game (right click on the game name, and select properties, then find 'verify etc' in the local content menu). Also, check your rig's security suite, and put it in 'game mode'...I had the same issue you had, and the game mode fixed it, as well as making the game run better.
    Yes, it's me.

    Hey, I'm Anax. Not my real name though. I'm from Canada and me and my friend play total war a lot. I started with Rome and have every newest once then, except M2TW. Hate the Medieval period. I like playing shogun2 and Rome mostly, but Napoleon and Empire I do sometimes. If you want, add me on steam, i'm called Anax of Sparta.

    Oh, the day that I'll teach you people about this game won't come for quite a while yet.

    Been pounding my way to Kyoto on Easy for now, getting used to the general setting and mechanics. Still get completely wiped once the Realm Divide kicks in. Lots of koku. Too many enemies. ^^

    Hi!
    My name is Paulo, I'm 42 and allways been a PS, PS2 and later PS3 huge player.
    But 3 weeks ago I thought of given Strategy PC games a go. Bought Medieval 2TTW...
    3 weeks later after closing my 1st campaign, I started RTTW, and already have on my shelves Shogun2 and Kingdoms expansion waiting on queue.... I think my PS3 will have to wait a loooong time for usage...

    Addictive to say the least. :D

    Which is all fine and dandy, but living to be able to spend it all is fun too ;)

    LOOL, thank you Hidden Gunman. Guess you won't have to wait much, I'm half way there to subscrive that statement! :rolleyes: In the past 24h, I've installed 2 mods for M2TW, therefore gaining two new fantastic games for zero euros. And that would never happen with a console. The only good argument my PS3 has is PES2012, there is no way it would run on my old laptop, and I'm a fan... :)

    P.S.: I own a Nokia. ;)

    I though I should introduce myself to the community. I apologize if this is in the wrong section. Everything you should know about me should be in my profile and all I really want to say is this from what I have read seems to be a very friendly community from both the players and the company as well and I'm glad to be apart of it. The only TW game(s) I have played is Empire Total War and soon to be Shogun 2 Total War (shogun is being downloaded atm)!
    I own a 25 slot minecraft sever. If anyone wants to play just message me!
