The Dismal Degradation Of Dynasty Warriors (The Jimquisition)

Dynasty Warriors may be my favorite series – or at least it was – but Tecmo Koei has been taking the piss with it for years.

Much of what’s said here could have been said a long time ago, but Dynasty Warriors 9 was its last chance… and we all know how that went.

Oh, and this isn’t just about what they DID to Zhang He!

hah. knew it, as i said last week, Jim’s been fed up with the series, and with DW9 he reached its boiling point, and yet i was spat & shat on for saying it, anyway some notes Sengoku Basara series technically are a superior series than DW on paper, however, sales prove otherwise, with SB3 being such a flop, that it forever ruined its chances of ever being releasing in the west, for shame. did you know that Capcom filed a lawsuit against Tecmo Koei, for infringing on apparent Capcom patent that was similar to DLC? apparently capcom patented when… Read more »

I’m looking forward to Jim’s Jimpression of Dynasty Warriors 8 Complete Edition on PS4. After all, even though it’s a 4 year old game, it has better graphics, framerate, and more features than Dynasty Warriors 9, such as coop and online, as if it’s a new game with new features.

Also, as a side note, regarding the “Realism” of Dynasty Warriors and Warriors games in general, can we talk about the two thousand person skype group chat which everyone seems to participate in during the flow of any battle?!

Dynasty Warriors 3 was one of those games that impressed a generation with being able to fight on a battlefield with “thousands (hundreds?) of warriors” and for it’s time, it seemed to deliver. The games released since I feel have done nothing but take steps backwards or tread water. Sure they added more complicated combo and move systems which was good, but have they actually done anything to evolve the series? No. The AI is as shit as it was since the first game, things like tigers, cavalry, elephant riding troops or just about anything that could make the combat… Read more »

I probably shouldn’t throw money at yet another rerelease Of Hyrule Warriors, but the upcoming Switch version looks really good. All the content of the 3DS version, but with the graphics power of the WiiU version, possibly better. Plus some BotW skins, and I love Zelda’s look in that game. I play Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons games (the Marvelous! ones, not the Natsume ones). And each game is pretty much the same thing as the previous ones, with slightly improved graphics, slightly different mechanics, and some new gimmick. Oh, and new waifu to marry. But despite a new one every… Read more »

This is one of the issues with diehard fans and certain franchises. Games that should have died years ago are given a lifeline in spite of stale and dubious practices. This may come as a surprise but im not a fan of DW and looking at the previous review, i cant really tell a difference between 9 or any other of the previous iterations (bugs aside). Would rather had another Jimquisition on loot boxes then watch something DW related. Still, glad Jims seen the light. A critique on this series and its developer/publisher was long overdue.

I remember when the NBA 2K18 kerfuffle was going on, and some people helpfully explained to me that actually it was fine, because creating ‘a star basketball team was hard, ergo forcing people to grind for hours was realistic, man! “Realism” seems to be the de jour explanation for a little of irritating bullshit.

I relate so much with this, I’ve felt this with Street Fighter and Capcom as they”ve slowly taken the piss (and no, I won’t forget what they last generation with Azura’s Wrath, Megaman 10, SFxTekken, the MvC3 games etc). But with SFV and MvCI I just had enough with them and after many fans made me feel like shit and awful for not liking SFV, declaring me not a true fan, a liar, a “flithy casual” and other nastier insult, I just couldn’t anymore (and yes, I’ve played Arcade Edition and no, it doesn’t justify what they did and it’s… Read more »
