Attention to fluff
As a general rule, I've enjoyed most of the Total War games over the years, and Warhammer looks like it's going to be great. As a fan of the tabletop game (mostly 40K though) it seems like a lot of the fluff has been in...
Or just watch this grand battle
Alongside this non-gameplay video for Total War: Warhammer, Creative Assembly has explained how it's going to label promotional materials for the strategy game going forward. I was happy to see the studio talk about this stuf...
Have a favorite?
My goodness, Creative Assembly's tactical Total War series has been around for 15 years now. There's a sale for the occasion, naturally, but it goes further than that: Shogun: Total War and Medieval: Total War have landed on ...
Creative Assembly changes the scenery
The Total War series is known for its focus on intense real-time combat and simulation-based nation-building gameplay. As one of the more historical games, the series has garnered a lot of respect from fans and many critics a...
Missed opportunity for an easy portmanteau

Three copies up for grabs
Our friends at Titan Books have given us three copies of The Art of Total War to hand out to lucky Dtoiders! Clocking in at just under 200 pages, this hardcover art book features development and concept art, plus developer co...
Be the barbarian
The horn sounds. Again and again. It's kind of annoying really, these vuvuzela m'fers blowing wind all through my dramatic victory on the fields north of Constantinopolis. Still, it does feel good. I am sacking the center of European civilization after all. I never liked those Romans anyway. Blow those horns, you barbarian bastards!
Do you even Hun bro?
The newly released Total War: Attila trailer features a whole lot of everything you probably don't want in a trailer. Well, that is if you want to see actual gameplay.
I don't know about you, but if I didn't know anything ab...
Strategy franchise's new art book spoils the surprise
Yes, Total War: Warhammer is a thing that's happening. No, Sega hasn't officially announced it.
The word comes from a book entitled The Art of Total War, which is set to hit shelves next week. Unfortunately for those who may ...
PC only, duh
Deals brought to you by the crew at Dealzon. FYI: sales from certain retailers go toward supporting Destructoid.

Pre-order or buy the game at retail for access
We haven't heard much about Total War: Attila since Creative Assembly announced the strategy game back in September but it's coming along. To catch you up to speed: the year is 395 AD, family trees are back, and you can burn ...
Warning: CGI trailer
I didn't throw out any guesses for what the next Total War would be, but if I had, wow, I would've been way off. Creative Assembly's next installment, Total War: Attila, will follow none other than Attila the Hun when it rel...
Is it that time already?

I'm hoping someone mods Asterix and Obelix into the game
Total War: Rome II was one of the games I'm kicking myself for passing over in 2013; I didn't think I was going to be able to commit to a vast strategy game in a series that has shown me no mercy in the past. However, the new...
Et tu, Brute?
Total War: Rome II will be getting an expansion, called Caesar in Gaul. This new campaign will focus around Caesar and the Gallic War, and the campaign will feature seasons with weather effects. New units will be added to the...
It'll have Steam Controller support too

Blood & Gore DLC
That man seems to have lost his head. Welp.
Tomorrow, Total War: Rome II is getting its Blood & Gore DLC which adds a whole mess of gruesome effects to the game. It's unfortunate that this is a $2.99 download as opposed t...
Over 100 more fixes in tow

Patch notes aren't currently available, bu...
The Battle of the Nile
In Total War: Rome II's take on the Battle of the Nile, you can either play as the Egyptians or the Romans. The latter is at a distinct disadvantage in terms of positioning and troop numbers, which means, yep, let's go with ...

Creative Assembly has put out the system requirements for Total War: Rome II, a game that's been a long time coming and one that will devour many an evening come September.
OS: XP/ Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8
The battles are indeed awesome
A better-looking Rome: Total War would have been enough for some, myself included -- have you seen how crazy some of the battles look? "Epic" is not a word that frequently leaves my mouth (or fingers, in this case) but it's a...
Quality, not quantity
Sega's bringing five announced titles to E3 2013 and the big one is undoubtedly Sonic Lost World. It's especially weird for me to say that having played few if any modern Sonic titles outside of the wonderful All-Stars Racing...
Toga, toga, toga!
The latest trailer for Total War: Rome II shows off what the campaign will be about, and it gives us a good look at the campaign map. The story will revolve around Cleopatra's struggles with Rome and all of the political fun...

The Romans had quite a wee bit of trouble pacifying the Germanic tribes of Northern Europe, and now you can sit back and watch some of that trouble on top of a substantial amount of bloodshed, fire, and fleeing Italians in T...
War elephants are my new best friend
A new trailer just came out for Amazon: Total War, an overhaul mod for Rome: Total War that adds a new campaign map that expands the game into Eurasia and India, a quest system, and tons of new units. The new units include A...
