    I had a chance to play Dynasty Warriors 8 at the MCM expo last month.

    Combat system is a minor evolution of the one in 7, which is good as I think that one was really good (with the switching weapons mid combo etc...) There's a system with some sort of 'rock/paper/scissors' thing between the officers, where some have bonuses against others. Wasn't too clear in the demo how it worked, but it seems like you have to fight differently against certain enemies as a result.

    Main change this time around is the stages. They seem to be a lot more vertical than before. Earlier games it felt like you were just running around a heightfield with some buildings on it, and when it did have cliffs etc... they never really overhung much else. This one feels much more 'constructed', the castles in the Yellow Turban demo stage I played felt more like actual buildings than they've done before.

    Already pre-ordered. I love me some Dynasty Warriors... :)

    I've been watching the fella play Deadpool. It's more clever than I expected, but it's still ridiculous and idiotic and exactly what you'd expect out of a Deadpool game. Can't comment on how it plays, but it looks pretty average on that front.
