Dynasty Warriors 8- 101

Video games have historically had trouble in the naming department. Beyond: Two Souls and Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark are two particularly egregious examples from the past twelve months. But far and away the absolute worst name of recent memory has to go to Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition. It was recently announced on the Tecmo Koei Tumblr page that the updated brawler will be releasing in Europe on the PlayStation 4 and Vita sometime in Spring 2014. Admittedly, the game does combine both Dynasty Warriors 8 and Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, but we really think that the publisher could have come up with something a little more creative than just slamming the two names together.

In truth, we're sure that Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition will be a lot of fun – we did give its bare bones iteration an 8/10, after all – but the sheer excess of its title can't be denied. On the plus side, the name's ludicrous length does artificially boost our word count, which means that we have to do less work. Hurrah. Will you be picking up this updated edition, or did you already play the original? Hack and slash your way into the comments section below.
