Shimazu's Story


Shogun was the first TW game I played, though I was never much good at it. I autoresolved most of the battles and still lost most of my campaigns. I loved the game however, and was dissapointed when I broke the disc. By this point however, there were newer TW games to play so I didn't dwell on it for long. Fast forward to the present; I'm heading of to uni at the end of this month and can't play ETW or NTW on my laptop without it looking like lego: total war, and although it can play M2TW and RTW very well, I wanted to wet my appetite for S2TW. So I bought Shogun Gold Edition, I'd only ever had the original game and I'm still learning the new features that the expansion brings. I managed to lose the last tutorial battle but nevertheless I'm playing on normal, and won't austoresolve a single battle(It's the only way I'll learn). There may be a lull in updates when I move to uni as I try to settle in, but there should be some degree of regularity. The format of the AAR will be the same as A Prussian Campaign.
