Video Clips of this weapon in media

Because of the blacklisting of youtube, I can't post example vids of the media that this gun appears in, but which don't have pages for them on this wiki yet. You can still find vids, however, if you use the search terms "matchlock shogun" or "kenzan heat action" or even "matchlock garand," all without the quotes of course, in the youtube search form. A pity that youtube had to be blacklisted. --Mazryonh 21:37, 30 June 2012 (CDT)

Why dont you get the actual video and screenshot it? --Zackmann08 22:20, 30 June 2012 (CDT)

Because then it wouldn't be my own work. Yakuza Kenzan is also not available in Region 1 (incidentally I'd like to make a page for another of the Yakuza games, but I don't have the equipment to take screenshots from my PS3). Akira Kurosawa's Ran is famous enough, but the other series mentioned are hard to obtain in Region 1 as well. I'm sure that there are players of Total War: Shogun 2 here who wouldn't mind posting screenshots of the game, though. The standalone expansion titled Fall of the Samurai has many examples of 19th-century weaponry, including Gatling Guns and various models of cannons and muskets/rifles, so if you want, you can re-enact the last scene from The Last Samurai in the game against charging melee attackers.--Mazryonh 22:35, 30 June 2012 (CDT)

I'll do a Ran page. --Funkychinaman 23:33, 30 June 2012 (CDT)

Please do. There really should be a page for Kurosawa's works with firearms in them on this wiki. Come to think of it, why not one for the films that Takeshi Kitano's directed too? --Mazryonh 23:58, 30 June 2012 (CDT)
