As I had originally said in my introductory post, I want this space to be a place where you can have access and updates about all of my gaming related content. I’d like to not only post discussion articles here, but also links and summaries to content I’m publishing in other places, my YouTube videos, game reviews, and all types of other gaming related things I’m involved in. So consider today’s post the first of this effort.
This week I published a review of the recently released Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension by Koei Tecmo. This review was published on Brash Games, which is an excellent site where I’ve been writing reviews for over a year. This particular game is a historical battle simulation game. I found this one to be lacking in comparison to other historical battle sims I’ve played by Koei Tecmo. I always make it a point to post the introduction of my reviews on my blog to give you a preview of my thoughts on the game, but you should definitely go read the whole thing if you want to find out more about the game. I’m happy to answer comments about the review either here or directly on that page. Whatever is easier for you works great for me. Here’s the introduction:
I’m no stranger to Koei Tecmo games and as such I’ve become very familiar with what to expect from them. In many ways this has made me an even bigger fan of theirs because I’ve experienced so much good work from them. But the many reviews of their games I’ve done have also shown me just how unoriginal a lot of their newer products are. Today Koei Tecmo’s catalogue of games can be split into two main groups: Historical Simulation Games and Other. Their other category includes titles like Attack on Titan, Toukiden, and the upcoming Nioh. All three of these are excellent titles that I personally own or will own in the case of Nioh and highly recommend. There are also countless other games in various genres that fall into this same other category. But the main staple of Koei Tecmo is their historical battle simulations.
