About Total War I played a lot at Shogun and I loved it, before someone stole it!!! :evil:
my favourite clans were Oda and Imagawa, expecially when I took generals and heirs like TOkugawa and Nobunaga, or Hideyoshi and other generals...
I remembered a time when Hojo had something like six heirs and before attacking the daimyo I killed them all by my geishas...
:twisted:
My only disappointment was that a daughter was never born to me and in the game's files (I've looked into the cd) there's this possibility...

HONDA: are you sure that there aren't crab louses?

I can't get a hold of the demo because of my bandwidth limitation. I expect a full report, Ranbir. ;)

Well, it's fantastic...

What you expect?

Hopefully the demo is nothing on the full game.

Because Agnicourt was easy peasy and the AI was terrible.

Word to the wise: never fight the French and expect a challenge.
Mithril! The dwarves tell no tales. But just as it was the foundation of their wealth, so also it was their destruction. They delved too greedily and too deep, and disturbed that from which they fled.

What are the sys requirements going to be? You know how rubbish my PC is!

I'm still loving and playing R:TW, currently on Alexander and I really want to play Medieval II!

Basically, they said, if you can play RTW, you'll be able to play M2TW.

Scaling it in places, I imagine.

If that's true then I'm going to get myself a new graphics card because I think that's the oldest thing in my PC, then I can play Medieval II! That would be the best!

Actually I think the sys requirements are surprisingly low for R:TW, if I remember rightly you only need a 1.4 with recommended 1.6 or so, (maybe even lower?!), therefore I think my PC could cope with something very similar to that.

Thanks for the good news!

Yes, but as we should know by now, there is a tendency for people who do System Requirements to be pathological liars. Oblivion, I'm looking at you.
