I started that as the apache I think but its no way near as good as the other campaigns, since it mainly seems to consist of get a ton of units and mob them xD

Mayans are the best. Aztecs get completely dicked over in the first couple of moves by their neighbours who start off as enemies and an unnecessary number of units. Apachean Tribes are useless when it starts coming to sieges. Spanish is too easy.

It doesn't really matter though. As with all Total War campaigns that i've ever done, i'll end up losing interest as soon as it becomes remotely difficult. I don't do too well with strategy.

Lawl.

The English arrived on my shoreline in the Americas campaign exactly where I had amassed a huge frickin' army. They lasted for two turns before their faction was destroyed. Poor poor English :lol:

The French are being a pain though. They're not that strong but they're settlements are miles apart and I want to take them down before they expand. Aztecs still haven't betrayed me yet which is good. I've managed to bulk up my defences at the borders anyway so if they do they won't do very well. I assume i'll be attacking them next once the French are eliminated since they're the greatest threat after them. Once that's done i'll just easily take over a few tribes and claim victory.

Wahey.

Now to play some UFC undisputed. I've found an amazing tactic for defence against takedown spammers. You pick BJ Penn or someone who can do a rubber guard and when they take you down and start bashing away you pull the rubber guard and start clonking away at them. Then they'll panic and try and escape and you roll them over into the mount and bash away at them. It's hilarious since they assumed their little tactic would work so well. Works fairly well with butterfly guard aswell if you're Big Nog or Frank Mir in heavyweight.

Sounds like someone needs to play WCW Vs NWO: Revenge and get some real wrestling games down them.

I remember the old WWF Smackdown games.

Anyone here play Audiosurf? Or could explain to me what Minecraft is, while they're at it? :P

Used to do co-op campaign on Smackdown with my childhood best friend, good times :D

Minecraft, is... I don't know, I spent like an hour digging a tunnel underneath some sheep to try and make a sheep trap. Then I sheared a sheep with a tree and used it's wool to create a block to jump on. I really don't know what the fuck the point is.

The old Smackdown games were glorious.

Me and my brother made our own tag team on it.

I mainly miss it for stuff like 5'2 guys doing suplexes on Kane and stuff.
And half the animations floating in mid air if the characters weren't perfectly matched.

And the backstage matches. I don't know why they took that out the new games.
I loved wandering around the backstages. Going outside, pushing people in front of cars and going into bars and smashing them in jukeboxes and all that kinda awesome stuff.

on the subject of smackdown games, the new SvR looks like they've acyually made an effort to make it different. mostly when it comes to TLC matches, like proper finishers off the ladders (RKO, codebreaker, attitude adjustment etc) and made tables and ladders more part of the environment so you can set them up in different positions. lets hope it actually works :P also theres a new mode that takes rivalrys into consideration and you get little animations if the 2 wrestlers hate each other enough. again lets hope it actually works
