I cant help it, I am a hack-n-slash fanboy. Though I am quite proud that Konami added the Empires feature to make it a bit more replayable, but 8 has a fairly solid (actually really solid) custom edit creation system (except for the bodyguards). I didnt play 7, so not much input there. But I really find this game to be quite enjoyable.

Anyone else feel the same?

P.S: Some people come up with the most interesting custom names....

I haven't played DW8 Empires, yet. But I have seen the gameplay and it looks cool. I'm still playing XL. I love my hack-and-slash games as well. 7 wasn't great and 6 sucked big time. My favourite is still DW5 and it's XL and Empires expansions. But yeah, 8 Empires looks cool.

I read about the marriage in the game to make babies.

Well currently i am playing on PC port and i think it is horrible. The translations are bad ....

Like when i raided an enemy base.

The notification turns out to be Successfully raided (insert your ruler name) force.

-.- really ? I am raiding my own base, and all those red shirts i just murdered are on my own force ?

The marriage system is a pretty hit or miss things.
Custom made officer and female officer's child can be pretty ugly.
My first child of a custom officer and Da Qiao is so horrible that i restarted the game.
Another child ( Diao Chan and custom officer ) look pretty decent execpt her voice is so deep that i thought it is a man. And the attack stats is already maxed out by the time she reached lvl 40 ( I am starting to wonder if Diao Chan cheated on my officer with Lu Bu )
2nd child of Diao chan's face look a bit like Diao chan execpt the child isn't walking around half naked and have a smaller chest.

Haha I know what you mean. Someone actually ended up with a 1 Hp and 1 Def child, but had super insane stats for other sections. It was really weird.

That is very true. I was quite disappointed with the lack of variety to the scenes. But what did alter the voice casting and personalities happened to be the custom officer voice selections. So that helped a bit, but it is quite repetitious.

I havent touched any of the main cast as I spent hours creating characters haha.

The scenarios are kind of disappointing if you do not participate in the scenario itself.

I have DW8 and DW8XL for my PS3, but the PS3 version of this particular Empires is digital-only, from what I understand, so I am waiting to get the physical release for PS4. (... that PS4 wish list is getting pretty long ...)

Played Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires on steam.
The last one of this series I tried out was 4 Empires and I have to say...
The game itself isn't that bad at all, but it was probably the worst PC port I've ever played ;~;
The PS4 version seems to be far superior since the PC version seems to be a port of the PS3 version x.x

but it's a fun game with a lot to do, and you can even give birth to kids that you send to war.
(Had a kid with 800+ attack when he joined o-o)

Though I was hoping they'd have fixed the foot soldier situation where they'd act less like literal cannon fodder :x
