    I had no idea they'd based a game series on Paul Virilio's indispensable books on speed, politics, technology and dromology.


    "Virilio's predictions about 'logistics of perception' - the use of images and information in war (cf. War and Cinema, 1984) were so accurate that during the Gulf War he was invited to discuss his ideas with French military officers. While Baudrillard infamously argued that the Gulf War did not take place, Virilio argued that it was a 'world war in miniature.'"

    I'd like another Shogun: Total War... but I'll be buying this anyway, as the Total War series has always been extremely good.

    Greetings!
    Steam is no longer a viable alternative to purchase brand new AAA games.
    For Empire TW, Steam wants 49,99€ (US$65,36 - £45,65).

    Amazon has the release date down as 27th march, anyone know why they're a bit off with their dates?

    Dunno actually.

    But this is going to be awesome! Finally a chance to see 10000+ troops with guns tear each other to pieces in realism.

    I still play RTW to this day.
