Total War SHOGUN 2 Gold Edition is a collection of expansion packs for one of the most successful grand strategy games, TW: Shogun 2, developed by Creative Assembly and published by Sega. It contains the base game, additional playable clans, units, scenarios, as well as 2 big DLCs released for the title in 2011 and 2012 – Rise of the Samurai and Fall of the Samurai, respectively. The game is available on PC (Windows, macOS, Linux).Story and time periodTotal War: Shogun 2 focuses on a Sengoku period when the land of Japan was divided between daimyos – lords leading numerous clans fighting for power against each other. The game, however, does not feature a clear story to follow and simply gives the player the ability to play the role of one of the daimyos commanding his clan struggling to unite Japan under his banner. The game also allows playing multiple predefined historical scenarios.Gold Edition includes two expansion packs that take the player to other eras of Japanese history – Rise of the Samurai and Fall of the Samurai:Rise of the Samurai focuses on the Gempei War between families of Taira, Minamoto, and Fujiwara, which took place in the 12th century. The expansion offers a different experience with the introduction of new agents with entirely different skill trees: seductive Shirabyoshi, discrete Monomi, inspiring Sou and disciplined Junsatsushi.Fall of the Samurai, on the other hand, offers to lead one of the clans in the more modern times, 400 hundred years after Sengoku Jidai, at the time of a Boshin War. The expansion requires a different approach and a new strategy, as the gunpowder is much more common, railways are spread across the land, steam-powered ships are introduced, and influence from the western empires grows stronger.Gameplay and game modesTotal War Shogun 2 combines the real-time strategy battles with turn-based nation management. In the turn-based part of the game, you will take care of diplomacy and economy, develop towns and strongholds, recruit soldiers and agents, and send troops for battle. Then, in the real-time part of the game, you will be able to manually resolve declared battles – flank enemies with cavalry, rain arrows on the unsuspecting soldiers, hold the position with heavily-armored melee troops or prepare an ambush in the forest.DLCs included in the Shogun II Gold Edition expands the content by adding even more playable clans to the base game. Each of the clans has their own unique strengths and excel in different areas, making the experience even more diverse. For example, the new Ikko Ikki clan has access to cheap but effective Loan Sword Ashigaru melee unit, Otomo clan starts with bonuses to gunpowdered units and can convert towns with different religions much faster, and Hattori clan focuses on hidden units and ninjas, utilizing the kisho ability which allows much more freedom in placing units on the battlefield before the battle starts.The game offers both single-player and multiplayer modes, as well as historical battles acting as predefined scenario challenges. In multiplayer you can battle other players to develop your online avatar, which gives access to more powerful units. It is also possible to create custom battles, where you can choose the map, weather, type of battle, and all the participating units.Total War: SHOGUN 2 Gold Edition contentTW: SHOGUN 2 Golden Edition includes the base game, as well as the following content:Dragon War Battle PackHattori ‘Ninja’ ClanIkko Ikki ‘Warrior Monk’ Clan PackOtomo ‘Gunpowder’ Clan PackSaga Clan PackObama Clan PackTsu Clan PackSendai Clan PackSaints & Heroes Elite Unit PackSengoku Jidai Elite Unit PackRise of the Samurai DLCFall of the Samurai DLCReceptionTotal War: Shogun II received very positive reviews with the game being generally considered an upgrade to and a worthy successor of the Shogun: Total War.

The Great Escape:In 1943, the Germans opened Stalag Luft North, a maximum security prisoner-of-war camp, designed to hold even the craftiest escape artists. In doing so, however, the Nazis unwittingly assembled the finest escape team in military history - brilliantly portrayed here by Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson and James Coburn - who worked on what became the largest prison breakout ever attempted. One of the most ingenious and suspenseful adventure films of all time, The Great Escape is a masterful collaboration between director John Sturges (The Magnificent Seven), screenwriters James Clavell (Shogun) and W.R. Burnett (Little Caesar), and composer Elmer Bernstein.The Magnificent Seven:In the blistering heat of the Mexican sierra, a village trembles in fear - waiting for the savage onslaught from Calvera (Eli Wallach) and his bandidos. Terrorised, robbed, humiliated, the villagers are desperate to hit back and set off for the American border to buy guns. But in thier quest they come across seven awesome weapons of destruction: a group of hard-riding, mercenary Western gunmen who will ride with them to the village and take out the bandidos. Led by Chris Adams (Yul Brymner), the seven find themselves plunged into a terrifying struggle - and a fight for the life of the village. In this classic Western, inspired by the Seven Samurai of Japan, Brymner - together with a cast of the calibre of Steve McQueen, Charles Bronsan and Horst Buchholz - fire the first bullets in a fight to the death.The Thomas Crown Affair:Thomas Crown (Steve McQueen) is a lone wolf in chic clothing. He's a Boston tycoon who masterminds a daring bank job, even though he doesn't need the money. What he needs is the thrill of the heist, the adrenaline rush of not getting caught. Catching crooks is where insurance investigator Vicky Anderson (Faye Dunaway) comes in. She always gets her man. But this time she may be too much in love to give him up. McQueen and Dunaway are lovers and adversaries in a stylish cat-and-mouse thriller written by Alan R. Trustmas and directed by Norman Jewison (In The Heat Of The Night, Moonstruck). Jewison makes exciting use of split-screen images as the action leaps from the boardroom to the boudoir, the polo field to a glider cockpit. The Oscar. Winning Best Song 'The Windmills Of Your Mind' sets the perfect tone for the swirl of romance and intrigue.The Sand Pebbles:The Sand Pebbles tells many storied.

It's the story of French (Richard Attenborough), a crewman on the U.S.S San Pablo who kidnaps his Chinese bride from the auction block. Most of all, it's the story of Jake Holman (Steve McQueen), a sailor who has given up trying to make peace with anything - including himself.

On October 21, 1600, two massive Japanese armies, totaling an estimated 200,000 soldiers armed to the teeth with swords, yari (spears), arrows, muskets, and cannons, faced off on a battlefield near the town of Sekigahara. A bitter fight to the death ensued, and the results would determine the course of Japanese history for the next 250 years.On the battlefield was the warlord Leyasu Tokugawa, a man desiring domain over the entire island of Japan, but standing in his way was Ishida Mitsunari, a warlord controlling vast swaths of western Japan. Moving with his armies from the east, Ieyasu maneuvered into a position at Sekigahara. Leyasu was relying heavily on the legendary Japanese samurai, but contrary to popular belief, the samurai warriors of that era were avid firearm users, and this battle would be no exception, as both armies bristled with muskets and cannons. Leyasu was outnumbered, but he had a trump card: Traitors placed in the enemy army. These treacherous warlords would join Leyasu in the midst of the battle, turning it in his favor.When Leyasu became shogun (military dictator) of Japan, he presided over the beginning of the Tokugawa shogunate, which brought peace and stability to all of Japan if only by ending the constant civil wars. Many changes took place, most notably in the capabilities of the samurai, Japan’s ruling military class, who were no longer active combat participants. Instead, most of these warriors were fighters in name only, ruling, instead, as privileged bureaucrats. They served the Tokugawa Shogunate, a military government that moved to isolate Japan from the rest of the world, for more than two centuries, and military service became the exclusive domain of a privileged warrior class that combined the military with an intricate network of social status and vassalage to feudal lords.As a feudal government, the Tokugawa shogunate split control of state domains under feudal lords known as daimyō.

Milligan and the Samurai Rebels is a humorous historical novel set in the Japan of the 1860s. The Shogun has been forced by the threat of Western firepower to re-open Japan to the outside world, while samurai outraged at this decision are scheming to topple the Shogunate and re-establish Imperial rule. In parallel to this struggle, Britain and France are fighting by every means except open warfare to establish themselves as the leading influence on the government of Japan and secure the accompanying trading privileges. Into this maelstrom steps Robert Seamus Milligan, a young British diplomat with a weakness for women and drink, who has joined the diplomatic service only to escape a contretemps back home. Upon his arrival in Japan and entirely against his will, he is immediately plunged into the conflict between Japan and the West, between the Shogunate and Imperial forces, and between Britain and France. Milligan survives several real historical clashes plus a Royal Navy Commodore on the warpath, humiliation at the hands of a French spy, sex in the bath with a female Japanese aristocrat, life as a Satsuma samurai, and a sumo bout against a homicidal maniac - thanks on more than one occasion to his Japanese servant, Miyazawa, and with much more credit than he deserves. "A thoroughly impressive first work, Simon Alexander Collier has done his homework...It's a fun book and it's a page turner." (Robert Whiting, author of You Gotta Have Wa and Tokyo Underworld) "The historical background has been carefully researched, but the reader needs no prior knowledge of history to enjoy the tale. He or she needs only to keep turning the pages as the plot twists and turns." (Sir Graham Fry, former British ambassador to Japan) Original cover artwork by Guus Floor. 1. Language: English.
