Shawn Can Be Heard in Video Games (also seen playing them)

I LOVE VIDEO GAMES

For my close friends, this comes to no surprise. I have enjoyed video games since I was a kid. I would say that before college, I had a crippling addiction. There were days in my childhood where the entire day was dedicated to my Xbox 360 and getting as many achievements as possible. I should have spent more time practicing…

The Game

You just lost the game (do you remember that?) My shakuhachi playing can be heard in the upcoming Stronghold game, Stronghold: Warlords. Besiege Great Khans, Imperial warlords and Shōgun commanders in Stronghold: Warlords, the latest in Firefly's classic 'castle sim' series. Command AI warlords across the battlefield as you build a castle economy and new gunpowder-fuelled siege engines! For the first time ever Stronghold: Warlords allows you to recruit, upgrade and command AI lords across the battlefield in the form of in-game ‘Warlords’. Each warlord under your command boosts your strategic prowess with unique perks, characteristics and upgradeable abilities. Put them to work for your industry, fortifying borders, forging weapons or team up for a pincer attack! Each campaign mission, skirmish game and multiplayer battle means a fresh set of warlords to command and new strategic depth to discover. The next chapter in Firefly Studios' real-time strategy series, Stronghold: Warlords is Firefly's first game to recreate the castle economies of the Far East. In Warlords you take command of Mongol hordes, imperial warriors and samurai clansmen as you lay siege to Japanese castles and fortified Chinese cities. Besiege historical warlords using new gunpowder-fuelled siege weapons, classic units and a completely new way to play Stronghold.
