Review: Samurai Warriors 4 photo
Review: Samurai Warriors 4
by Chris Carter

While the Dynasty Warriors series is often heralded as the pinnacle of Omega Force's hack-and-slash catalog, the lesser-known Samurai franchise has been churning out some of the best games in the stable.

Based around the Sengoku era of Japan, Samurai Warriors mixes things up with unique offerings like ninjas, samurai, and historical figures such as Goemon Ishikawa and Musashi Miyamoto. If you can get past the repetition, Samurai Warriors 4 delivers another hearty helping of action the developer is known for.

Hyrule Warriors' 'Master Quest' DLC is worth the price of entry if you're already addicted photo
Hyrule Warriors' 'Master Quest' DLC is worth the price of entry if you're already addicted
by Chris Carter

Hyrule Warriors is a massive game. If you want to 100% everything, get every weapon, and max out every character, it could last you roughly 200 hours or more. I'm hitting the 100-hour mark myself, due in part to the new Master Quest DLC pack that dropped yesterday.

The pack comes side-by-side with a free update that brings three new characters to the mix, and on its own delivers a new weapon (Epona), five new campaign maps, and a newer, tougher Adventure Mode map.

Next month's Hyrule Warriors DLC adds Epona

Hyrule Warriors will have no shortage of DLC, that's for sure. The first major add-on, Master Quest Pack, hits on October 16 and includes a new weapon, scenario, Adventure mode map, and costumes. Funny thing about that "weapo...

We never could have imagined this mash-up in our wildest dreams.

Nintendo, Team Ninja, and Omega Force together, co-developing a game based on the Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors series. Few stranger things have happened, and fans of both franchises have been eagerly awaiting this all-star combination for months on end.

While the typical Warriors trappings are still present in Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo has injected more than enough charm to make this collaboration something special.
