Vorfreude: Rome 2

Vorfreude: Rome 2

The game that I am most keenly anticipating at the moment is Total War: Rome II.

While I have yet to acquire quite a few of this falls major titles and there are several more exciting titles coming out before October next year, when Rome II is scheduled for release, my attention is squarely focused on this one game. There are games that I look really forward to trying, like Assassin's Creed 3, but my most devoted interest is for Rome only.

I am usually not a sucker for the PR bursts of gaming companies. Trailers, teasers, screenshots. I avoid them, or I take a merely polite interest in them. However, there is one game about which I have read all about till now. Rome II.

I loved Rome when I first played it, and I have been a fan of the series ever since. For all its faults the series is still brilliant. Rome was the game that showed me the strategy genre. Arguable it was the game that made me a gamer. Before Rome I was only a casual gamer at best. Rome stole hundreds of hours of my time, and I stole myself time to play it. Right after school, before starting on homework. All the way until I heard my mum enter through the garage, every day, and then I had to hurry up and shut down the game and the computer to hide my naughty behavior.

When they are now making a new Rome I'm sold. I've read most of what's been leaked of information about the game they are making. Latest of all are the factions of the game that they have started to reveal, along with hints about the size of the new campaign map. I can't wait to get my hands on this game.
