In the videos released during E3 the game displayed some weird, and imo awkward mechanics involving ambushes and the like. My main concern isnt so much with having to do them at all, but having to do them frequently. Will battles be more about weird ambushes and officer encounters and less about what i've loved about musou games up to this point? Is Sony forcing developers to implement the multiple control points on the PSV? Im not afraid of change- the changes to Samurai Warriors for Chronicles were well executed- thats all I want, things added because they make a game better- not to sell features the manufacturer will quietly ignore a year later.

I'm thinking that it may not be such a bad thing if Dynasty Warriors were to be changed up a bit. It's gotten stale for a lot of people, myself included.

I'm not really expecting much different in the new dynasty warriors game.

Basically i'll buy any system with a musou game. SamWar 3 is why I bought a Wii for example. Im apparently Koei's key demographic

Samurai Warriors Chronicles some interesting new things that work pretty well if youre interested- unfortunately it means owning a 3DS - which I own but kinda regret.

As long as Ma Chao fights in the name of justice, I don't care.

Why yes! And in other news, the world is made up of people with different and varied tastes, not all of which match your own. I'll give you a moment to overcome the shock.

Dynasty warriors could use a little make over, if I do say so myself

Dynasty Warriors has run the same concept for so long, they need to take a leap and improve it a bit. I don't even know how they still sell!
 
I feel all the Dynasty warriors games were pretty much the same games with mildly different stories.

Dynasty warriors was the first game i bought with my PSP, and lo and behold a new system with the exact same IP

Oh great, im dreading the release of this system, but i hope im proved wrong by amazing titles and intuitive control system.

The PS Vita will be awesome, just wait and see.
 
As for Dynasty Warriors, I have loved this series since the first time I played as Guan Yu and kicked major ass; I still find it amusing that people think that because they don't like something it automatically means NO-ONE likes it. 
 
I must admit though, even though I like the series and the way battles go, it could do with a few new mechanics and gameplay innovations.

I doubt they need to appeal to new fans. I think their best bet is to keep appealing to the people who still like them

Any change is good for that series.

How is Samurai Warriors for Chronicles, by the way.

#17 Posted by Pyrgz (256 posts) -

so how much has dynasty warriors changed since like... dynasty warrior 3? because I played that one and all the newer ones look pretty much just like that one.

#18 Posted by mrangryface (775 posts) -

I think its really good- you command a set of four officers per map instead of just one. I think my only complaints would be that the weapons could use more variety and that some of the objectives are kinda ridiculous. It's like you need to catch Hanzo before he gets here, and Hanzos outrunning me on foot while im on a horse. I call shenannigans. At the end of the day failing a mission in a SW game doesnt end things anyway so its mostly me just being all sore about not catching ninjas.

Dynasty Warriors gave itself a make-over with DW6. Fans revolted... and they undid a lot of them for DW7. DW7 itself still breaks the mold a bit too, but in a way that's somewhat interesting. Plus it finally added Jin. I don't expect people who don't enjoy the series to understand what people who enjoy it look for, but yeah, changing the formula, even slightly, would tick a lot of people off. Myself included. I almost didn't buy DW7 after the travesty that was DW6.

I kind of wish DW7 was a little more challenging tho- the ability to carry weapons over from conquest kinda busted the difficulty levels imo. Sun and Moon are crazy OP
