Total War: Rome II is only a week away, so let’s watch this multiplayer hands-on

I can wrap my head around Street MMA, and MMA in general, but there’s something about armoring up and going shoulder to shoulder with some people that won’t be alive by the time a battle is done that I just can’t handle. I’m talking about the old days, when arrows would rain down on top of people’s heads instead of chemical warfare and drone attacks. The idea of savagely screaming then charging towards some equally insane people for a bout of mortal combat in which most people will be hacked to pieces is something I hope I never am involved in… At all. 

I mean, I don’t know what type of situation would arise where I would have to kill or be killed while brandishing a spear or a sword, but, I just hope it doesn’t happen. That’s all. Does this war just turn you into a butchering maniac? Man…

Either way, here’s the latest video released by Creative Assembly about what will likely be the strategy game of the year, Total War: Rome II.
