This will be the first time I haven't pre-ordered a Total War game. Also, Pre-order to get "Viking Forefathers"? Fuck off, Sega. Even the fact they call them that and not their actual cultural name (whatever it is) to try and draw in the "OH SWEET, VIKINGZ!" crowd annoys me. I'm quite into the "dark age" period, which this game is the real start of I guess (particularly if they do some DLC of post-Roman Britain) but if they can't do the Hoplite Phalanx properly then they will fail at proper shieldwalls as well. Bleh.
