From now until 1PM PT on Sunday, June 28th, Steam users will be able to play through many of the Total War games available. This includes the recently-released Total War: Attila, as well as Total War: Rome II, Total War: Shogun 2 (and the Fall of the Samurai expansion), Empire: Total War, Napoleon: Total War, and Medieval II: Total War.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Warhammer is consuming most of the studios time and energy, download Shogun2:FOTS if you want some musket action.

        I'd like to see Creative Assembly mature as a studio and move on from the Warscape engine. It's beyond long in the tooth, it's a little bit like if Firaxis kept the same engine Civ3 was on for Beyond The Sword & Civ5.

        I think it's long overdue for them to return to a more complex sandbox campaign.

        I fucking loved Empire. I want them to move it up even further in time. I want a WWI setting.

        The scope of Empire was so big. I hope they revisit it.
