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 to understand the concept of “strength in numbers”…

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 now… where will things end up next?

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 unexpectedly on the outside.

Today’s adventure in Warriors Orochi is a painful lesson in this particular concept.

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 record a new commentary “after the fact”, as it were. I don’t think it came out too badly.

Hit the jump for the new video.

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 brave but occasionally incompetent warriors got on with their latest challenge.

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 elements of Greek mythology is tremendously exciting to me, but I’m having fun with the Chinese and Japanese heroes in the meantime.

Hit the jump for the new video.

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 Warriors before, in later installments, diversifying in all sorts of strange directions.

Hit the jump to see my first experiences with the Xbox 360 version of the first game in this peculiar series!
