Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, playerattack lets you know which games were the most popular.
I was expecting to see a familiar face pop up this week in the number one spot. I’ve been reading so many good things about it that I was quite shocked, honestly, to see that it has been bumped from its lofty perch, and now nestles in the #2 position, underneath a newcomer. Then I read a little more about this new game, and I think it’s a worthy winner. Wouldn’t be surprised if it slips down itself next week, though.
#1 – Total War: SHOGUN 2
In the darkest age of Japan, endless war leaves a country divided. It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Ten legendary warlords strive for supremacy as conspiracies and conflicts wither the empire. Only one will rise above all to win the heart of a nation as the new shogun…The others will die by his sword.
Take on the role of one Daimyo, the clan leader, and use military engagements, economics and diplomacy to achieve the ultimate goal: re-unite Japan under his supreme command and become the new Shogun – the undisputed ruler of a pacified nation.
