Yeah I think I placed it in my Most Anticipated Games of 2013, and my God it continues to look awesome. Sadly, I will wait until a decent sale on Steam before getting it.

But yeah, this looks to be the greatest Total War game yet. The strategic portion of the game looks fantastic (the battles always look fantastic, but the strategic/management element was always lacking) and I honestly hope they do not disappoint.

Has there been any real footage of siege battles? I know they did one of Carthage, but I want to see how it'll look while actually fighting the battle.

Yeah, I figured this one deserved its own thread.

The only siege is some Carthage gameplay but Nile has footage of an amphib landing along with naval/land combat on the same map, Teutotoberg has some ambush footage.

I have already preordered it but I can guarantee it will be buggy as hell for the first couple weeks. TW games always are.

Woo and what a disaster this game is turning out to be too. At least I wasn't fucking stupid by pre-ordering this one like I did with Simcity.

I knew it would be a disaster, wanted to play too much for waiting.

Creative Assembly has a slightly better track record, and they did a great job with Shogun II Total War, but yeah, I've never pre-ordered a Total War game.

Nice thread here about one of my favorite game.
I think Total War Rome 2 a few better that earlier version of this game.

Allegedly, the maps are still too damn small for my liking still. At least, I wish the maps were asymmetrical, the cities would look more natural. Right now it feels like chunks of CBDs of major cities were tossed into pristine wilderness, with a magic force field preventing any outward growth.

Simcity is almost more appealing as a town simulator. Small rural communities, or whatever.
