Mount & Blade

Argh. Mount and Blade. Sooo… many… cavalry battles. So many hapless infantry crushed beneath hooves. Seriously, my sword mouse arm is getting tired.

As a realistic simulation of cavalry warfare, very limited. As a filmic Experience, awesome. Moments that… you know the poetic bits of the Qur’an which are mostly there because they were dictated in the middle of a big cavalry war? “By the snorting chargers / by the strikers of fire / by the dawn-raiders / blazing a trail of dust / cleaving there with a host…”

A great apocalyptic charge into the sunrise, comrades rising and falling in their saddles beside you, a silence under the thunder of hooves.
