Picked up WO3 Ultimate for XBox, and it is basically more of everything that we all love from the Musou series. The huge cast, different weapons, and fun combinations keep replayability really high. Gauntlet Mode is always an entertaining romp, with the randomized enemies and punishing difficulty. I have found, however, that Bombast is an exceedingly powerful skill to have on your weapon with certain characters, like Xu Shu and his RB/R1 skill abuse, as well as Tamamo and her musou - you can literally wade through a crowd with scroll twirling around you with impunity even in the hardest levels of Gauntlet Mode. I have been enjoying picking up the remaining Mystic weapons just for the hell of it, even though I have just about all of the crafted X weapons. Definitely a fun title and there really isn't anything quite like it on XBox.

How do I unlock horses on WO3? I'm currently half way through chapter 2, have I just not reached the point where I'll get them or?

I've just learnt you always have a horse, you just have to press down on the controller. I wish I'd known that earlier...

Is there anyway of resetting the story without losing your weapons and character levels?

I feel intimidated making a new official discussion thread for a new game (I don’t want to do it wrong) ... but WO4 has been announced! And it’s coming out in Japan before the end of the year!

Someone else make a new thread for it?! :P
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!
