I could open this topic and say somethin stereotypical like "out of all the the japan related topics how come no one ever mentioned the onimusha series" but if i did that would just be plain rude. Well i have been wondering why no one has said anything about it could be b/c it hasn't made any new ones yet. I was looking through all my ps2 games and decided to play onimusha dawn of dreams for a bit ended up beating it for the first time the other day. I also discovered that i have 3 games based on japanese history: onimusha warlords, onimusha dawn of dreams, and nobunaga's ambition. Well actually onimusha warlords belongs to my brother but he forgot to take it with him to new york when he moved out but yet he robs me of both mortal kombat deception and armageddon.
I didn't really know much about the onimusha series which is why i started playing warlords even though i played a little of onimusha 2 and most of 3 but right now i'm stuck at this point where the main guy named samanoske is trapped in a room with water flooding in it and this woman named kaede is searching for a way to get him out. Well i found the way to get him out but it's a difficult puzzle for me. In order to open the room with the water i have to move these 2 pieces of a crest to the center of the puzzle. i have managed to move one half of of the crest to the center but the other half is blocked off from movement. I have heard that they were making onimusha into a movie.
If that is true then i expect that it would be real good to watch seeing how good the story went for dawn of dreams. I just hope they don't deviate from most of the important elements like dragonball did to the dbz series even if dragonball was still an ok movie. After i had beaten dawn of dreams i went to youtube and found out some stuff i didn't know such as soki's ultimate weapon: excalibur. The best weapon i had at the time to beat the game with was leviathan. Oh in case u were wondering what Nobunaga's Ambition was it's a semi Rts (real time strategy) game based on historical events in japan from the 1560's to the 1700's i believe. The goal is obviously to conquer all of japan but u can play not only as nobunaga oda but also as the other warlords at the time. The only RTS part of the game is the battle's but u can pause it so i guess it's not really a RTS at all then. Basically improve ur castle by improving the land around it such as creating more farms producing more troops, better the marketplaces so u can get more gold, etc. then u wait for the ai to finish all their turns. well reguardless i thought the onimusha series was worth mentioning here since it's a rare video game series that's actually based around historical events. I haven't really found many games based on history.
reasons why i quit.... refess is still dependent on ex cards.....and i have no ex cards.
