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 look like the most charismatic evil snake dude out there, but he certainly seems to have a fairly reliable means of… convincing people to rally under his banner.
Only one thing for it! Kick the snot out of everyone until we seem like the more appealing option! Let’s do it!
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.

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 on the battlefield well and truly in their place. One in particular…

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 she’s rather fun, so sorry Zhao Yun, but you’re on the bench for now.

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 to have it worse than most. Still, all is not as it seems in this strange other dimension, and a true warrior never gives up!
Hit the jump to see the beginning of a whole new quest…

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 both sides battling across a flotilla of warships, with a bit of fire to keep things interesting.
Gives a whole new meaning to “tiger, tiger, burning bright,” huh?

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 one thing left to do, having reunited the Sun family beneath the banner of the tiger…
Hit the jump to see how the Sun bros (and sis… err, and dad) got on with this one last challenge…

So far we’ve talked in great depth primarily about the Story mode in Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition. Today it’s time to start seeing what else the game has to offer.
Specifically, we’re going to take a look at Ambition mode, a complementary, mechanics- and progression-centric way to play that is designed to be enjoyed alongside Story mode.
Can you impress the Emperor? That remains to be seen. Let’s make camp and get started.

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. Hit the jump to see how badly things went.

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!
