    looking at the castles now i really hope there are some buildings thrown in there to make it look like people actually live there instead of it being just walls

    Best Video i've seen. Went much more into siege(Archers firing out of slits) and lots of nice things i can see like the Generals camps are curtained off and seem to have large dics floating over their locations to indicate where they are. Even on the campaign map you could see some of the armies had lowly ashigaru generals and others samurai generals with the more elaborate helmets.

    I have to say, i was very worried about how boring castle battles might be after i saw an earlier demonstration- but now i'm really looking forward to them!

    Me as well. I feel much better about Castles battles and the defender's ability to actually defend them. Battle map relates to campaign location is excellent. This will be epic and a worthy addition to TW. Bring on the demo!

    Definately, when they announced Shogun 2, I was very sceptical after Empires performance, but I am extremely hyped for this release. I havent really played Total War for a few months, Napoleon got very boring very quickly for me but I cant wait to "get back on the horse" so to speak!

    Yes this looks so good. Is 20 max unit still in shogun2 or have they made it bigger? That is what makes me think...

    Nice to hear that all the battle maps are going to be made according to the army's place on the big map.

    EDIT: @ admiral_tromp

    The core unit list is 20 units. There are around 30 units total, since each major clan will have a unique unit or two. I maybe mistaken but I also heard them say in the interview.

    I thought it was a total of 40 units? maybe because of the hero guys you could attain later? I don't know...god this wait is really killing me.

    40 would be so great. At last we could have bigger and more mircomanagement (was that right?) battles.

    finally a good indepth interview, seiges a little better but still meh. everything else sounded great (especually the way the battle maps are generated!) all i need now is a confirmation that they fixed the renforcement bug (battle renforcements comes on the wrong side of rivers and stuff) and that they got rid of the trickle in thing they got in NTW and its a shoe in.

    I just can't shake the feeling that I'm not impressed with these graphics. The campaign map is certainly a huge improvement over ETW, but the units and the battlefield lack the realism of M2TW- they simply look like plastic toys.
    "There is in all things a pattern that is part of our universe. It has symmetry, elegance, and grace - those qualities you find always in that which the true artist captures. We try to copy these patterns in our lives and our society, seeking the rhythms, the dances, the forms that comfort. Yet, it is possible to see peril in the finding of ultimate perfection. It is clear that the ultimate pattern contains it own fixity. In such perfection, all things move toward death."

    I'm thinking that the massive floating discs were over the capture-able shrines and buildings. If you look again, they're stationary over structures and appear to indicate the 'owner' through the color. I could be wrong, though.

    Also, am I the only guy wanting those artillery/rockets that were pounding the hell out of the castle walls and units? (around 9:12 of 2nd link)

    I think the graphics look superb for such **** quality videos, I noticed some odd things that need fixed. Like the smoke from the ships disappearing and reappearing, the flag when they were boarding the ship kept stretching all the way to the other ship a few times, it looked really awkward.

    Though thats the kind of stuff that they fix in the last 2 months, so i'm not worried.

    Nice Video but the unit flags on the back need to go. With everyone unit having a flag on their back half the size of the unit, on some views it's nothing but flags and we lose the units. What an emersion killer!

    Naval Battles look very impressive. And as mentioned in another post the castle battles look very plain .... not much detail on/within the castle grounds.

    Question, a second before the video ends the player clicks on a full stack and you see a second tab next to the army tab, can you read what it says?

    It look like a pretty long word.
