Are you retarded? Its all influenced by history of each respective nation, and beliefs in regards to mythologies

shit thread, these games aren't nearly historically autistic enough

Excited for Bannerlord to finally come out. Can't say I like the fact that there will be voice acting ingame. Kingdom Come Deliverance has the worst dialogue system I've ever seen in a game and it's a shame they decided to go with a voiced PC.

Same. I'd like an ACW DLC but it won't happen and judging from the community in N&S: First Manassas, it's probably better that way.
>>
>>322416062
Im kinda sad tha NW only has few factions, French/Prussian/Austrian/British/Russian and no spaniards or ottomans
>>
>>322417026
All of the Mount and Blade DLC feels half baked to me and they all have less content than the base game. Viking Conquest was such a disappointment.

VC is sub-par, but NW feels adequately comfortable. Yea it lack some content, but it feels compete in its own way. Favorite thing about it is the Jailbreak and Zombie servers

I had my fill of Jailbreak and Zombie servers in CSS. Maybe it's my fault for expecting Napoleon Total War: mount and blade edition instead of paid mount and musket.

I would literqlly pay all the money necessary if MnB NW was like using 1 unit Napoleon TW.

I swear the pixel large soldiers in Total War have more animations and depth placed into the than MnB allows. Not to mention grenadiers actually have grenades!
>>
>>322418179
Well grenadiers having grenades is actually historically inaccurate and is removed in a lot of mods for Napoleon but I get what you mean. The thing is M&B will never have the scale of Total War because of the differences between games. Battles in TW are calculated by dice rolls between entire units based on a bunch of factors like stats, fatigue, slopes. Animations are something that could be improved on but Bannerlord will have mocap so that's a start.

I took them from a lecture/presentation on misconceptions about medieval arms and armor. Unfortunately I can't find any higher quality footage.

Do the WW2 Call of Dutys/Medal of Honors count?

>>322420052
Sure why not. The other history games aren't all accurate either.

Bashford Dean was a crazy motherfucker.
>turn of the century
>curator of the arms and armor department at the NY Met
>old families selling off medieval and renaissance stuff
>private collectors didn't want it, since collectors at the time were buying up oriental stuff
>european stuff was seen as not historically valuable
>Dean bucks the trend and buys some very important harnesses and weapons
>then he dresses himself in armors and does cartwheels and runs around in them to show their agility
>and he falls off a running horse with a harness on
>and he buys a medieval crossbow and fires the bolts into a harness
>the authentic medieval bolts
This is the shit I know about him. He was also contracted to develop hard metal armor for the US army in WWI, and almost had it out to them. But the war was coming to a close in 1918 and the army never bought it.
Dean of course used historic designs
>literal American Knights could have helped fight off the Hun

If you're ever close to the Met, you fucking go.

Pretty much, though theyre closer to modern history, id say anything before lage 1970s i perfectly good. Anything after and its just too modern

I suppose you joined a regiment in that module, Union Autism or Dixieland Autism?
>>
>>322420052
in that line I'd like to point out Insurgency. While not at all a totally accurate portrayal of modern combat, I would like to say they do a damn good job of making me feel like I'm back in Iraq or Afghanistan. The maps are beautiful, in that sense.

That said, never want to return to either of those countries.

Did you ever play the mod? You probably would have enjoyed it more with the lack of HUD and everything.
