It's Friday: you want to go home, I want to go home, the gaming industry as a whole wants to go home. It should be no surprise then that today's daily gaming update is incredibly short, containing only three brief articles. What are they? Well you'll have to read on to find out.
Maybe pre-rendered cinematics aren't the best indication of how a game will actually play out, but that doesn't make them any more awesome. Exhibit A: this Total War: Shogun 2 trailer which, although clearly not gameplay footage, certainly dazzles with a hefty dose of style.
You can end the Shogunate yourself come March 15th exclusively on the PC.
