Warriors Wednesday


Articles about Warriors Orochi

Warriors Wednesday: Never Let Zhao Yun Tank - Orochi’s armies are growing in strength in an attempt to counter the growing confidence of the Shu forces. Zhao Yun can practically smell his master Liu Bei now — not literally, ’cause that’d be weird — and his friends are relieved to know that victory is within sight. There are still a few challenges left to overcome, … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Never Let Zhao Yun Tank
Warriors Wednesday: One-Woman Army - The Shu gang still hasn’t quite tracked down Liu Bei, so Zhurong and Meng Huo decide to sneak off for a bit of independent investigation. Along the way, they encounter Jude from Tales of Xillia Musashi Miyamoto and decide to lend a hand, as he and his swordsmen friends appear to be struggling a bit. Hell hath … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: One-Woman Army
Warriors Wednesday: Gratuitous Panty Shot - With an outfit like that, it was only a matter of time before Zhurong gave the people what they wanted. And in slow-motion, too! Ahem. Anyway, besides that little diversion, today’s Warriors Orochi outing sees the Shu gang teaming up with Wu’s Sun Ce in yet another sure-to-fail attempt to track down the perpetually absent Liu Bei. … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Gratuitous Panty Shot
Warriors Wednesday: Scantily-Clad Barbarian Ladies - There’s no rest for the Shu forces as they come face to face with Masamune Date! Thankfully, Date’s friend Magoichi Saika, who has been rolling with the Shu crowd largely because of its disproportionate number of attractive and formidable female warriors, has a cunning plan ready to go… assuming he can keep his mind on … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Scantily-Clad Barbarian Ladies
Warriors Wednesday: Shu on Wu - In this week’s Warriors Orochi mission, the various narratives cross paths as the Shu forces take on the Wu warriors who have been brought to heel by Orochi. This conflict, which unfolded off-screen during the Wu campaign, sees the Shu people continuing their quest to track down the missing Liu Bei… only to find a … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Shu on Wu
Warriors Wednesday: Ganbare So Ganbare - The Shu campaign in Warriors Orochi continues today with another side mission, this time featuring everyone’s favourite thief, Goemon. Goemon has been doing what he does best: nicking stuff. So it’s up to the crack all-girl team of Zhurong, Yueying and Ginchiyo Tachibana to save the day… or at least all the stolen stuff, anyway. … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Ganbare So Ganbare
Waifu Wednesday: Zhurong - With today’s episode of Warriors Wednesday introducing Zhu Rong for the first time, I thought she’d make an ideal subject for a Waifu Wednesday article. And it’ll probably make my podcasting partner in crime Chris happy too, because he likes her. Y’know, like likes her. Ahem. Anyway. Zhu Rong (or Zhurong, as her name is more correctly … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Zhurong
Warriors Wednesday: Junglist Massive - In today’s Warriors Orochi mission, the Shu gang hit the jungle and encounter the formidable Meng Huo and his even scarier wife Zhu Rong. Renowned strategist Sima Yi has been causing trouble for the barbarians, it seems, so Zhao Yun and company take the opportunity to forge a new alliance and demonstrate their own fighting … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Junglist Massive
Waifu Wednesday: Ginchiyo Tachibana - Those of you who have been following the Warriors Wednesday series of videos will know that in each of Warriors Orochi’s campaigns, I’ve found one warrior in particular who has proven to be an ever-reliable killing machine that I can fall back on in most circumstances. In the Shu campaign, which we’re currently embroiled in … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Ginchiyo Tachibana
Warriors Wednesday: Honour, Hojo and Halberds - In today’s Warriors Orochi mission, it’s up to the Shu people to save the Hojo clan before they defect to Orochi’s forces! Can they pull it off and obtain some valuable new allies? Zhao Yun, Yue Ying and Ginchiyo Tachibana certainly think so, but they have a formidable challenge ahead of them. Orochi may not … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Honour, Hojo and Halberds
Warriors Wednesday: Spirits of Sanada - Oh no! Ghosts! They ruin everything. Particularly when they’re not actually there. This is the painful lesson that Yukimura Sanada has to learn in today’s Warriors Orochi mission. Fortunately, Zhao Yun, Yue Ying and Ginchiyo Tachibana are right there ready and waiting to educate him with various pointy implements. Hit the jump to see how the Shu … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Spirits of Sanada
Warriors Wednesday: Gender Roles - In today’s Warriors Wednesday, Ginchiyo Tachibana struts her stuff and proves exactly why she is known as the Goddess of Lightning! Fighting alongside Xingcai and Zhao Yun in the first side mission of the Shu campaign, Tachibana quickly proves herself to be a formidable warrior who is more than happy to put all the men … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Gender Roles
Warriors Wednesday: One Foxy Lady - The Shu campaign of Warriors Orochi is now well underway as Zhao Yun kicks off his efforts to find his lost master Liu Bei. Well, I say that; I kicked him out of the party in favour of trying out newcomer Ginchiyo Tachibana, who I unlocked at the end of last week’s mission; turns out … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: One Foxy Lady
Warriors Wednesday: Not Just a Woman - Having soundly kicked Orochi’s behind into next week with both the Samurai and Wu forces, it’s now the turn of Shu to suffer under my command as we once again take on Crazy Snake Guy. All of the various forces in Warriors Orochi start in a fairly desperate situation of one form or another, but Shu seems … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Not Just a Woman
Warriors Wednesday: I’m On a Boat - Well, okay, there was one more challenge left to undertake with the Wu forces… just like with the Samurai forces, Orochi needs a second kicking just to make sure he stays down for good! This time around, the stage for the battle is a take on the Battle of Chi Bi, a Dynasty Warriors classic that sees … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: I’m On a Boat
Warriors Wednesday: Wu Warriors vs Orochi - It’s that time again… time to face down Crazy Snake Guy and decide the fate of ancient China and/or Samurai-era Japan once and for all. Yes, our playthrough of the Wu campaign in Warriors Orochi has finally reached the final mission (aside from the last side mission, which we’ll take on next week) and thus, there’s just … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Wu Warriors vs Orochi
Warriors Wednesday: Learn Through Pain - And oh, oh, I did. I really did learn through pain. Intense, burning, repeated pain. We have a long journey ahead of us, dear friends, but it’s a worthwhile one. In front of us stands the seemingly undefeatable Tadakatsu Honda, and beyond? The path to Orochi. When I say “seemingly undefeatable”, I… well, you’ll see. … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Learn Through Pain
Warriors Wednesday: Some People Are Into Weird Feet - You know who you are. In today’s episode of Warriors Wednesday, I finally catch up with my other video series technology- (and confidence)-wise and show my face! How exciting. Anyway, now we have The Wild Man on our side, let’s take him for a spin, shall we? BWAHAHAHAHA!
Warriors Wednesday: How The Wild Man Does It - How DOES The Wild Man do it? Find out in today’s thrilling installment of Warriors Wednesday, as the Wu forces attempt to prove themselves to Keiji Maeda. If you were looking forward to seeing my smiling face again on this video, apologies to disappoint; I recorded this before I got the new gear necessary to … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: How The Wild Man Does It
Warriors Wednesday: In Case of Emergency, Use Taishi Ci - Side note: since starting Dynasty Warriors 8, in which they pronounce everyone’s names quite differently from earlier Warriors games, I have become aware that I am perhaps pronouncing… well, everyone’s name wrong. Tai-shuh-tsuh, indeed. Anyway. That, hopefully, will not detract too much from your experiences with the ever-expanding series that is Warriors Wednesday. We’re continuing … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: In Case of Emergency, Use Taishi Ci
Warriors Wednesday: Ina Bit of a Pickle - Things are heating up! After a few missions where things have gone mostly smoothly for the Wu boys and girls (and friends) it seems we’re starting to encounter a little bit more in the way of resistance… even with all those lovely Abilities unlocked! Well, desperate times call for desperate measures… so now seems like … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Ina Bit of a Pickle
Warriors Wednesday: Enter Kunoichi - The Wu campaign continues as the Sun family comes to blows over the recapture of their father. In this installment, the Battle of Sekigahara, we retire the ever-reliable Ranmaru Mori for now in favour of newcomer Kunoichi, who turned up in the previous battle. She is joined by Taishi “Prepare to Die” Ci and Lady … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Enter Kunoichi
Warriors Wednesday: Yes, We Have No Bananas - Today on Warriors Wednesday, it brings me great pleasure to introduce you to my cat Meg, who thought she would participate in the beginning of this video. After that, we get thoroughly acquainted with the lovely Lady Nō, who is primed and ready to get you all hot under the collar before ruthlessly killing you. … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Yes, We Have No Bananas
Warriors Wednesday: Robert Miles Presents - Today on Warriors Wednesday, we jump into the fourth main story chapter of the Wu campaign in Warriors Orochi. Today sees Sun Ce finally getting the opportunity to rescue his dear old dad from Snake-Eyes himself… and unfolds partially in the interior of a castle rather than on the usual outdoor battlefields. It also features … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Robert Miles Presents
Warriors Wednesday: The Mail Must Get Through - Warriors Orochi is definitely getting easier the further I go through it. Today’s mission is done and dusted in under 20 minutes — including the obligatory “upgrade and fusion” time before we actually get into the hackin’ and a-slashin’. This is keeping things fun and interesting, however; the sense of “power creep” is very satisfying … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: The Mail Must Get Through
Warriors Wednesday: When You Get Around Like I Do, You Pick Up a Thing or Two - Sakon Shima has been something of a fixture in the Samurai Warriors series since the second installment. Typically depicted as a cunning strategist and a powerful warrior in his own right, the real Sakon Shima was an extremely well-regarded and famous samurai. After his original master Junkei Tsutsui met his end, he retired, but after … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: When You Get Around Like I Do, You Pick Up a Thing or Two
Warriors Wednesday: If There Are No Biscuits, There Shall Be Only Death - The Wu campaign continues apace as Sun Ce and compatriots attempt to recapture some vital storehouses. As we all know, an army can’t fight on an empty stomach. And this is just as true in Orochi’s world as it is in our own. As such, when our former Best Boy Mitsuhide Akechi decides to take … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: If There Are No Biscuits, There Shall Be Only Death
Warriors Wednesday: Worst Sneak Attack Ever - Wu, Wu! That’s the sound of the pain train coming your way, Orochi… just, uh, not just yet. Sun Ce and friends continue being forced into an uneasy alliance with Captain Snakeypants as people important to them are held hostage. Sun Ce has little choice but to go along with Orochi’s scheming until he and … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Worst Sneak Attack Ever
Warriors Wednesday: Rocket-Launcher Spear - It’s time to start a new campaign in Warriors Orochi! Yes, this week we leave behind the Samurai Warriors in favour of the Wu campaign, although we get to keep all the abilities and whatnot we unlocked over the course of our Samurai adventure. Wu, it seems, is in cahoots with Orochi — though not … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Rocket-Launcher Spear
Waifu* Wednesday: Ranmaru Mori - Prior to firing up Warriors Orochi for the ongoing Warriors Wednesday video series, my sole contact with Omega Force’s formidable franchise was various incarnations of Dynasty Warriors. Having never encountered Samurai Warriors and its cast, I had consequently never stumbled across Ranmaru Mori before. And, as such, I had also never encountered the numerous… discussions over this … Continue reading Waifu* Wednesday: Ranmaru Mori
Warriors Wednesday: Samurai Warriors vs Orochi 2 – Electric Lu Bu-Galoo - Did you think we were done with the adventures of the Samurai Warriors? Well, nope, we weren’t quite finished… Today we tackle the final side mission of the Samurai campaign in Warriors Orochi, which culminates in another tough battle against King Snek himself. Who will prevail? I mean, you know it’s me eventually, but hit the … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Samurai Warriors vs Orochi 2 – Electric Lu Bu-Galoo
Warriors Wednesday: Samurai Warriors vs Orochi - We’ve made it! The final battle… for this campaign, anyway. Yes, today we reach the climactic final showdown of the Samurai campaign in Warriors Orochi and face the snake god himself in single combat. Well, okay, we bring along all our friends and pound on him so much he can’t fight back. Even the great warriors of history … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Samurai Warriors vs Orochi
Warriors Wednesday: The God of War’s Windmill Blade - We’re nearly there! On the Samurai Warriors campaign, that is. Yes, it’s the penultimate mission of the first phase of our Warriors Orochi playthrough, meaning that next time around we get to wail on ol’ snake boy himself for the first time. After a bit of off-camera unlocking of passive abilities, things are going pretty well for … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: The God of War’s Windmill Blade
Warriors Wednesday: The Solid Whack You Can Deliver with Wood - Things are getting noticeably more difficult as we approach the conclusion of the Samurai campaign in Warriors Orochi. Today’s mission sees our intrepid heroes facing off against a selection of powerful foes, including “wild man” Keiji Maeda, who threatens to break Xiao Qiao in half (“but who will put me back together again?!”). But help … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: The Solid Whack You Can Deliver with Wood
Delving into Musou: Warriors Orochi - Regular readers will know that, for a little while now, I’ve been posting videos of my experiences with Warriors Orochi. So I figured it was probably time I wrote about it! This realisation comes at a good time, as although I’m a significant distance away from beating the game — and I would actually like … Continue reading Delving into Musou: Warriors Orochi
Warriors Wednesday: Mistakes Were Made - Ahhh… I knew it wouldn’t last. After last week’s joyful celebrations of clearing a mission first time… today we more than make up for that good performance with a series of unfortunate and crushing defeats. But still, as long as we learn from our mistakes, it’s okay to mess up once or twice, right…?
Around the Network - Hello everyone! It’s been a hectic week for me this week, to say the least. My wife Andie was rushed into hospital with suspected appendicitis early in the week, and then I came down with… something or other as a result of the stress of the whole situation combined with regular visits to A Place … Continue reading Around the Network
Warriors Wednesday: First-Time Clear - I did it! For the first time in quite a while… I cleared a Warriors Orochi battle without messing it up even once. This is surely cause for celebration… at least partly because it almost certainly won’t happen again, as the challenge factor continues to ramp up with each new mission. Hit the jump for … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: First-Time Clear
Warriors Wednesday: Cavalry’s ‘Ere, Luv - Yes, it’s that time again, and today it’s Lu Xun’s time to shine, having been left somewhat on the sidelines for the last couple of missions. Today the Samurai Warriors and friends take on the Battle of Nagashino and attempt to obtain some cavalry support while assaulting an Orochi stronghold. Unfortunately said cavalry doesn’t appear … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Cavalry’s ‘Ere, Luv
Warriors Wednesday: Most Definitely Sorcery Bullshit - It’s once again time for the Samurai Warriors and friends to continue their adventure through the otherworldly realm of Orochi. The difficulty level is starting to ramp up noticeably now — today’s mission takes a few attempts to get just right, but we get there in the end! We’re well past the halfway point of the Samurai Warriors scenario … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Most Definitely Sorcery Bullshit
Warriors Wednesday: Pursued By Lu Bu - Talk to any Warriors veteran, and one piece of advice will almost certainly be a constant: “do not pursue Lu Bu”. However, what a lot of people fail to mention is that you should also do your very best to not be pursued by Lu Bu, either, because that is a sure-fire means of finding your insides … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Pursued By Lu Bu
Warriors Wednesday: So Many Dongs - It’s Warriors Wednesday time again, as Nobunaga Oda and the Samurai Warriors forces continue to fight back against Orochi and his army. Today we take on the fourth main story mission of the Samurai Warriors campaign, and bust out some new characters, including Okuni and Xiao Qiao. Hit the jump for the new video.
Warriors Wednesday: The Sword That Hits Eight Times - It’s time for another romp in Orochi’s less-than-fair lands as Nobunaga and his samurai friends hack and slash their way to another victory. I, uh, made a small mistake with recording this one in that I accidentally deleted my whole commentary while I was cleaning up my videos folder, so I ended up having to … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: The Sword That Hits Eight Times
Warriors Wednesday: Still Not Sure How To Pronounce “Cao” - Our adventure through the original Warriors Orochi continues with another of the Samurai scenario’s side stories. Nobunaga and company take on a rescue mission to try and find a new ally. Will they be victorious first time? (No.) How about the second? (Nope.) Maybe third time’s the charm? Hit the jump to see how these … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Still Not Sure How To Pronounce “Cao”
Warriors Wednesday: TFW No Big Tiddy Strategist GF - The battles against Orochi’s forces continue as Nobunaga and friends come face to face with a powerful foe. It’s Da Ji, Orochi’s strategist and a master of disguise. Deceiving the Coalition forces by taking on the appearance of the apparently slain Cao Cao, Da Ji seeks to take control of the battlefield on her own … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: TFW No Big Tiddy Strategist GF
Warriors Wednesday: Know Your Place - The battles continue in Warriors Orochi as Nobunaga and friends attempt to rescue some peasants from a fate worse than death. Or just, you know, death. I’ve been having a real blast with Warriors Orochi so far, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how the series develops over time. The prospect of the upcoming Warriors Orochi 4 incorporating … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Know Your Place
Warriors Wednesday: I’m Nobunaga, Bitch - Last month’s feature on Hyrule Warriors got me thoroughly re-enamoured with the Warriors series as a whole, so I figured why not spend some time playing through some installments I’ve never tried before? One subseries I’ve always been particularly curious about is Warriors Orochi, an ambitious, fantastic crossover affair which initially brought together the casts of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai … Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: I’m Nobunaga, Bitch
Hyrule Warriors: Introduction and History - Omega Force’s Warriors (or Musou, if you prefer) is one of the longest-running, most prolific series in all of gaming. And yet it is also one of the most commonly misunderstood and misrepresented in terms of its gameplay. Often dismissed by critics as being little more than mindless button-mashers, the Warriors series has, over time and the … Continue reading Hyrule Warriors: Introduction and History
