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 is at hand in the form of “God of War” Kenshin Uesugi and his longstanding rival, Shingen Takeda’s formidable moustache. And the warrior attached to it, I guess.
How do things go? Hmm… take a look.

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…?
Continue reading Warriors Wednesday: Mistakes Were Made – Warriors Orochi #11
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 the latest video and admire my… skills?

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”…

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 terms.
Nobunaga is not so easily swayed by the formidable charms of a big tiddy strategist gf, however, although he does take a bit of a kicking a couple of times before figuring out the best way to deal with the situation. Hit the jump to see how that all went.
