Warriors Wednesday: It’s A Trap… Again

You can count on several things in a Warriors game: firstly, that pursuing Lu Bu is usually a bad idea; secondly, that the commander is struggling and that you should assist at once; and thirdly, that “it” is usually a trap.

It’s a trope at this point; if a particular encounter in a Warriors battle feels mysteriously easy, or there don’t seem to be very many enemies around on a suspiciously large map, you can guarantee that something bad is going to happen to your forces at some point. It’s just a matter of when…

And, of course, that’s exactly what happens today, as Cao Pi and friends attempt to seize a strategically advantageous garrison…

Warriors Wednesday: Stoking the Fires of Rebellion

Today’s scuffle in the lands of Warriors Orochi sees Xiahou Dun and Xiahou Yuan entering the picture, as Cao Pi does his best to gather the forces required for an effective rebellion.

The two proud warriors, ever loyal to Wei even after they felt its leader had abandoned it, are going to take a bit of convincing, though. And by “convincing”, I mean “poking repeatedly with sharp objects”.

New recruit Zhang He also gets a bit of time to shine. His claw work is beeeeautiful, don’t you know…

Warriors Wednesday: Mystical Ninja

Cao Pi and friends have a tough battle ahead of them today: they’re up against Nene and her ninjutsu!

It seems our “hero” is still biding his time before unleashing his inevitable betrayal of Da Ji and Orochi, however, but we get closer and closer with every mission. It’s not a case of if, it’s a case of when.

Oh, and if you ever were wondering what I thought of Japanese denpa group PASSPO, you can find out, exclusively in this, the forty-ninth episode of Warriors Wednesday. Don’t say I never give you anything.

Warriors Wednesday: Chasing the Sun

Cao Pi is definitely up to something… and he’s starting to get bolder.

In today’s mission, the Wei leader and his friends are tasked with putting down a rebellion by Sun Ce — the same rebellion, you may recall, that we helped instigate back in the Wu campaign.

We’re getting closer to the time that Cao Pi inevitably betrays Da Ji and Orochi… but for the moment he’s just biding his time.

Warriors Wednesday: Heavy Weapon

In today’s episode, Cao Pi, Xu Zhu and Xu Huang hit the jungle in an attempt to convince their ally Zhang He that Orochi is a cause worth fighting for.

Of course, with Cao Pi being Cao Pi, he’s up to something. Exactly what isn’t quite clear just yet, but at some point in the very near future, he’s clearly going to strike.

In the meantime, it’s a case of biding his time and at least attempting to look like he’s doing the great serpent’s bidding…

Warriors Wednesday: Do You Know The Wei?

No, I’m not even a little bit sorry for that title. Because it’s finally time for the final campaign of Warriors Orochi!

Yes, after successfully clearing the Samurai, Wu and Shu campaigns, it’s finally time to tackle the Wei’s challenges — beginning with Cao Pi apparently in the service of the snake god himself. But, as anyone who has ever played a Warriors game will attest, anyone with “Cao” in their name is usually up to something… I wonder what?

Time to hack and slash our way to the truth!

Warriors Wednesday: Pursuing Lu Bu

You thought we were done with the Shu campaign, but it was I, Lu Bu– hold on, I’m getting confused somewhere, I think.

Anyway, yes, as with all the other campaigns, the Shu missions play host to a “Chapter 8-X” which allows you to square up against Orochi once again… and perhaps give a certain little overconfident jackass with a silly hat the kicking he so deserves.

Let us take to the field once again, warriors, and this time, we shall be the ones to pursue Lu Bu!
