No, in short, you really must know very little about warfare in that period.

That's sweet, I wonder if they will let us name the ships in our fleet....
It is not the challenges a people face which define who they are, but rather the way in which they respond to those challenges.

Unimpressive you mean? If so I don't follow you here. Judging by what we have seen so far we should rather fear the opposite scenario; that the game is all presentation and weak in gameplay.

I don't think anything has been made official yet, but just by looking it you can tell you'll need a new computer with all the latest hardware to run it well. The latest hardware when the game is released, that is, not now.

I'm upgrading my comp now. Its looking very promising. Apparantly each faction will be speaking in their own language, though i ratehr doubt the Marathas will be speaking Marathi, its not exactly the easiest language to come by voice actor wise.

I don't know. Haven't decided whether i will buy it or not. The last previews were not very promising and my ethusiasm has been constantly dropping since summer. Looks like a failure just like M2TW to be honest.

The fact is, it is no longer aimed at the hardcore history and gameplay fans, it just has to look snazzy and it will fly off the shelves, bought by the new wave of 15 year old casual gamers. The mods will certainly help though, and it is very good at what it is trying to do.

Out of interest, what exactly do you find wrong with the previews? They look pretty impressive to me.

I noticed in one of the trailers that there was a scene of two, presumably noblemen, in a duel of some sort - anyone know how this will factor into gameplay at all or if it was simply a video clip for the trailers?
