Holy Crap, The Latest Shogun 2 DLC Is BLOOODY

Good lord. I thought my excitement for Shogun 2 peaked with the Fall of the Samurai DLC I talked about the other day. Unfortunately that doesn’t drop until next year. However, right now at this very minute you can buy the Blood Pack on Steam, and boy do you want to do this. People may not be aware, but feudal Japanese warriors used human blood as shampoo, hair conditioner, floor cleaner, automobile lubricant and makeup. So the Blood pack really nails that aspect of Japanese society. It features:

* Decapitation and limb severing
* Blood effects on unit models, equipment and ground
* Blood-squirt from projectile and weapon impact
* New sounds for dismemberment and spurting blood
* Blood-spatter effect on camera

So, yeah. Awesome. Also, the Hattori Clan pack is also on Steam. This includes some of the content restricted to gamers who bought the limited edition version, and adds the Hattori clan, which means NINJA! History fun fact: Hattori Hanzō as a low-ranking Samurai at the end of the warring states period in Japan. He became a trusted lieutenant of future Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, thanks in large part to his also, and I’m not kidding here, having been a ninja. Reknowned as a great fighter, powers ranging from teleportation to telekenesis were later attributed to him, and his legacy is a large part of how the Ninja became such an enduring part of Japanese popular legend.
