Just a shout out to the guys at The Creative Assembly, I bought Medieval 2 Total War last week, and I have to say that game kicks some serious ass.
The last game to capture my entire weekend away like that was funnily enough Rome TW, then Shogun TW, and the only others were Kotor, Mechwarrior2 and Sid Meier's Colonisation.
Till now the first Medieval was my least fave of the TW series, but the issues with that one have been ironed out completely and its awesome. The way you guys have spread out the events like the Mongols and Black Plague and all that kind of thing really rocks and keeps you interested, and the whole heretic thing is a great addition though the Inquisitors piss me off cause they keep burning all my family and assassins are generally pretty useless.
You guys seriously have it down pat and I cannot wait to see what your doing next, I hope its a remake of Shogun or some kind of WW1 TW though after this I'll play whatever you give me.
.... seriously..... nice
