Some Bladestorm screens to get you pumped

It's a guilty pleasure of many "intelligent" gamers -- those games that let you shut your mind down, mash your face against your controller and pull off a series of moves resulting in satisfying cries of death from less-than-responsive AI opponents. We've talked about Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War before and you should know the premise by now. You take the role of one of a number of European characters who may or may not have been in the war and... unleash havoc via Dynasty Warriors standards.

What we hope has been improved in this next-gen iteration for the 360 and PS3 is an increased on-screen character count. Too often did officers just vanish in the PS2 Dynasty Warriors games because there were so many peons floating around doing nothing at all. Except dying. You know what? These new screens seem to indicate just that. Take a look and enjoy. Maybe online play would spark some life into this guilty pleasure. Imagine that!

1. I had enough of these games with Kessen. Surely there are differences, but these games aren't on my priority list.
