The lights are on
Tecmo Koei's adaptation of Fist of the North Star didn't have a ton of fans, but if you're one of them then you might be excited to know that the publisher will release the sequel this February, which coincidentally is the same month it plans to release Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires. That was not a great sentence.
Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 5 and will feature a Legend mode that follows the storyline of the manga, a Dream Mode that introduces new, original storylines to the Fist of the North Star Universe, and online co-op and competitive modes. We're having a little bit of trouble getting excited over this game since we gave the first one a 4.5.
Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires is another game we're not really excited about, since we've played Dynasty Warriors about three dozen times already, but if you're still trucking along with this series the next entry releases on February 26.
If you don't care about either of these games, why are you still reading this?

It's really hard to hate Call of Duty and the so called lack of innovation of game dynamics and technology when this abomination keeps spawning... Not sequels... Not even iterations... Not more... Not even clones, as you only clone something because it had some original appeal.
This truly boggles my mind.
I haven't picked a Dynasty Warriors game up in a while, might be interesting time to play one again. Although, I think I'd rather wait for a non-empires instalment. Empires always felt...lacking in some way, possibly the lack of story mode.
I remember playing Dynasty Warriors IV. It was one of my favorite games as a kid. It's a shame that it's the exact same now than it was then.
"If you don't care about either of these games, why are you still reading this?"
I wanted to know if you were going to describe the difference between the Empires sub-series and the normal, numbered Dynasty Warriors' games.
Omega Force, please make something else. Winback was neat. Remember when Dynasty Warriors was a fighting game? Try making a fighting game again! Do something else entirely! Just put this series on ice for awhile, please.
Talk about doing the same thing a hundred times...
Maybe Activision and EA studied Koei.
Good thing that article was so short. I didn't give two tinker's cuss about either of those gab squarbled titles.
You should mention, Mr. Reeves, that - at least with Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires up there - the series has been demoted to a digital only release. In Europe, it comes out a week earlier, digital and retail. Here in the 'states though, like also with One Piece Pirate Warriors, it's PSN-only.
Serves Koei right, for trotting out the same thing again, and again, and again. CHANGE IT UP. Make it relevant again! You guys make EA Sports' series and Call of Duty look like they freshen things up IMMENSELY every year. Ugh.
