So I should be hoping that Shogun 2 hits the Flash Sale of 75% off and that the package deal is equally discounted.
The more I recall playing, the more I want to play.
I'll never forget the original Total War: Shogun, the first time I bought it. I popped in the disc to install, heard my drive spool up, hear a building vibration noise, a quick squeal noise, and then a loud BANG
. The disc was apparently unbalanced and slipped off the track, exploding inside the drive. I shook out all the little bits of it I could find but never trusted that drive again and ultimately replaced it. The store was unsympathetic to my plight and I had to drop another little wad of cash to buy a second copy.
