I'm surprised that no one has brought this up yet.

Medieval II: Total War is comming out Nov 14, 2006. And it looks freakin' amazing...

It looks amazing...
Like a beefed up version of RTW with just a bit of action thrown into it with no real material progress.
TW is becoming a clone series. Kinda sad.

I was already disappointed during the release of RTW, the abysmal AI at tactical and strategical level, along with mere ornamental diplomatic system, was the last straw to remove it from my pc. :charge:
I will rather drool over the coming of Europa Universalis III than M2:TW.

Well, what more do you really expect out of this game? I'm not sure what other new features they will add, especially with todays technology...

Its amazing how they've newly included realistic actions like thrust, cut, stab etc. Unlike previous TW's where they only do one attacking actions, im not quite sure of RTW where they've got similar features but M2TW seems to be really realistic as well as very fine graphics(excellent graphics). Can't wait untill the games out lol.

Demo came out in PC mag today. Hopefully it will be avaliable online soon.

And the AI is much improved. When troops cross a bridge, they immediately were able to comply. It wasn't like Rome, where soldiers stood there for 10 seconds, unblinking, staring at the bridge, not doing anything.

It is already avaliable online,albeit in ironic fashion:

Geez,i thought the lag in R:TW is meant to depict inherent command-&-control limitations in ancient warfare? :P
Actually that's not what i really meant by AI competency,i was referring more to tactical and strategic AI~~~ :charge:

causing them to refix the whole entire game, or map to suit their bidding...


Noobs..... <_<

If you are talking about the slang used by gamers(as in rig required to play XXX games),it means the specification of your gaming machine(ie,your pc or laptop),things like motherboard processor,video card,RAM etc. :b_woot:
