New £1.99 DLC for Total War: Shogun 2 has just been released, introducing 10 elite units for the game's various singleplayer and multiplayer game modes. These include a Bulletproof Samurai and a Marathon Monk, who sound amazing in themselves but who presumably later get together and give birth to a Seann William Scott "comedy". One of the nice things about being a games journalist is that very few of your co-workers have degrees relevant to their field. Instead, they have much more interesting degrees, like Rich's in Japanese History.
When the Portuguese first landed upon Japan's shores in 1543, they stroked their handlebar mustaches and said, "You know, that whole honorable swordsman thing is working well for you, but what you really need is our brand of GUNshido." They then shot the word "PORTUGAL" into the side of the Emperor's palace. My history recollection is probably incredibly inaccurate by now, but still, guns remain the central theme for the November 30 release of the Otomo Clan DLC for Total War: Shogun 2. You'll get a new playable faction with five armed unit types, extra buildings, and special traits.
I had to rub my eyes. How could this have happened? Scant turns into Shogun 2’s campaign on the Hard setting, and I’d conquered my first city. My early-game army was already marching toward the next. Then one of the other clans landed a naval transport next to my home city and walked a small army right in. Total War’s AI, it seems, doesn’t have trouble with ships any more. Thus began my army’s panicked march home to retake its own capital. Dismay, bedwetting, and the thrill of a fateful challenge: a good opener for ten.
My computer was pretending to be tired last night. "I don't want to download any more" he grumbled. "A few evenings ago I preloaded Bulletstorm, as soon as you got home tonight I downloaded a monstrous 6Gb Total War: Shogun 2 demo, and now you want me to start cooking 1.9 Gb of Dragon Age 2? It's 10pm. I'm knackered."

It feels as though pre-ordering a burger will net you a TF2 hat these days, but who can argue with the addition of samurai swords to the game? Valve have announced on the Team Fortress 2 blog that eight community created items have been added to celebrate the upcoming release of Total War: Shogun 2. Read on to find out what they are, and how to unlock them.
The Samurai are doomed. That's according to the latest batch of Total War: Shogun 2 screenshots, which show off lots of new imperial weaponry. Cannons, gatling guns and muskets will make defending the Shogunate a very tough task. Fall of the Samurai's new weaponry has to be dramatic, mind, "mild decline of the Samurai" doesn't have quite the same ring to it. We'll get to fight with the expansion's new land and naval units on March 23. You'll find plenty more in our big preview in the latest issue of PC Gamer UK. Meanwhile, see samurai being blown apart and roasted in the new grabs below, which also feature some of Fall of the Samurai's new Agents.
