View Full Version : Three new interviews!

I'm too lazy to start three separate threads, so here goes....

First off, there's a fairly extensive interview (http://www.totalvideogames.com/Shogun-2-Total-War/feature-15635.html) with three guys on the dev team (Kevin McDowell, James Russell, & Jamie Ferguson). They talk about the game more in broad concepts, their motivation/inspiration for both Shogun titles, the research & historical info the team's used in the game, etc. Even though they don't discuss S2TW much in the way of specifics, I admit I still found the article a fairly interesting read.

Next is a GameTrailers (video) interview (http://www.gametrailers.com/video/battle-types-shogun-2/704825) with Kieran. The video largely rehashes what we already know, but Brigden does drop some potentially tantalizing (if still sparse) hints about their plans for the MP side of the game.

Finally, we have a nice interview with Dr. Stephen Turnbull (http://www.incgamers.com/Interviews/295/dr-stephen-turnbull-shogun-2-total-war-interview), who's served as CA's historical advisor for both STW and Shogun 2. It was cool to hear the ways in which he's helped shape both games, as well as his own thoughts on them.

I love it how Kieran adores these interviews and tries to speak as fast as possible to give out everything he's supposed to say.

At least he does it with pleasure. ~D

Interesting. I want more detail though. As far as I can tell, the interviews seem to be repeating themselves.

well one major thing that disturbs me about he saying about MP,, he uses the word IF at the end

he says we are doing a lot of testing to see IF it works......

i would be more happy if he said we are testing a lot of things to see how it works and must be improved.... or similar
