Clan of Champions is an an action game with underlying role-playing game mechanics launched on Steam, and soon the PlayStation 3 too. As part of the Gladiator series, originally titled Gladiator Vs, Clan of Champions is the third game in the series. The Gladiator series has gone generally under the radar, with each previous title simply passing as an underwhelming release. But how does the recently localized title fare?

I was often recommended to try playing the Way of the Samurai franchise, but I never did get the chance. With Way of the Samurai 4 just released, it was now time to truly play the game for myself.
Way of the Samurai 4 sees the player take the role of a samurai during the period of transition in Japan, when the small country started to become influenced by western powers. The player may freely choose to side with the Japanese military, isolationists, or even the foreigners themselves. As a foreigner to the franchise, would I feel isolated?
