Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires came out last week, but I didn’t get a chance to pick it up until a few days ago because I was stuck at home since it kept snowing… I haven’t played an Empires game since Samurai Warriors 2, which I thought was pretty boring… Then I heard that you could get married now, so here I am!
Here’s my custom character! She’s just very pink.
I’m not very far into the game, but I just chose one of the scenarios and joined Cao Cao so I could see how the new character (Xun Yu) is like. I was trying to raise my friendship with Xun Yu when Gan Ning suddenly confessed to me, so I just went along with it and married him, hehe. Then I just went through all the confession scenes, which is… all of my screencaps below. These are my priorities… These are confession and marriage scenes from the guys from Wei, and I’ll post the scenes from the other factions later.
I really wish Yu Jin was more romantic, haha… I just had a thought that since he had a scary face and strict personality that maybe??? He would have a gap and be really shy or really romantic when confessing… But he’s just very down-to-business, haha. I might have been playing too many otoge lately…
The new guy hasn’t really made a strong impression on me yet, but he’s kind of cute…!!
Anyway, this game is pretty fun so far! I don’t suggest it for people who haven’t played Dynasty or Samurai Warriors before, but if you’re a fan of the series and enjoy strategizing and customizing things, then you should play this. Since you control a lot of what’s going on, you’ll either be really bored or spend an ungodly amount of time on this game. I should stop watching confession scenes and actually continue the game, hehe…
My only complaint is the microphone option because it’s really annoying having Cao Cao yell at me through both my TV and my controller. Just the TV is enough! (I know you can just adjust the controller volume, but what’s the point of having Cao Cao yelling at you through your controller, too!?)
