halo moments, eh i remember the first halo three moment in x-box live, people kept picking up the spartan laser,. firing and nothing happened, and
they were all like "oh no it doesnt work" so i pick it up, and charge the shot, and kill three people in one shot, BAM dead.
Oh yea, i didint know how to use that thing for the first few games i played, took a while to get used to it...
I still think Conkers is the best...
Now i have to tell you about some of my favorite moments from Rome Total War... the game is set in teh 2nd centery BC... I had my legion of about 2500
well trained men (with about 400 archers), i was being attacked by nearly 9000 infantry, and 1000 calvery...
The first wave of men was overwhelming. Nearly 4500 phalanx infantry, and worse, ive started on the Low ground... Enemy reenfourcements are not going
to make it to the battlefeild right away... I make my move, i split my force and move haslty up the hill I use my General and his calvery guard to
'push' back the enemy skirmishers... during this, my men moved onto each of the enemy flanks, the enemy posistion started to move thier formation
bends into a crecent open away from my men...
Then in a moment, i take both of my flanks, and smash onto each of his sides, the middle of the Line gets drawn out, and becomes distant from the
battle.. meanwhile, my men SHASH thier line, causeing a Mass rout, and then enemy runs confused into my men, i kill thousands in the matter of
seconds... with the entire first army of the enemy smashed, thier reenfocements moved in...
The second wave of men were the elite units... the first one was just phalanx milita, and i shamshed them with little resisctance... This next wave
was not going to be easy.. the numbers were probly even at the start, about 2200 men on each side... but i had the upper ground, and my men had not
thrown thier spears yet...
The Greek Elite made thier way up the way up the hill... as soon as they got into range, i rained spears down on them, the greeks held formation, and
i used up all my spears... now hand to hand combat... the greeks are gaining the upper hand, i have the numbers, but the spartans can out kill my
I move some auxiliary troops to the middle and pull back about 400 men... i swing around on the weak flank and fly down the hill, swing around, with
my general leading the charge, thier line breaks from left to right, and several hundred of thier men flee... there is still a group of about 200
spartans on the strong flank, that will not break... the third army arives on the battlefeild, they are uphill, and must march thru a forest to get to
MY army is thining... i have less then a quarter of my men remaining... no spears... everyone of them is tired, and i have 2000 more greeks marching
on me, running full speed thru the forest...
The spartans have no surrender in them, they must have killed half my army, with only about 500 of them total, im sure they killed over 1000 of my
men... finnaly, the last spartan dies, my men are exaushsted... but more enemies arive... they now arive in waves of 200-600 men... i franticly keep
shifting my men around, my general trying to delay enemy renforments... i split my force up, just a couple groups of 300 men, i surround and slaughter
the units that arive
My 2 groups do well, but soon i see that the Spartan generals unit makes its way to one of my groups... they cant hold up, i lose one flank, the men
that arnt cut down flee off the map, running down hilll... My general rallies a couple dozen men who were routed, and the last of my men fall down the
hill, there is no more then 200 enemy men left on the map, i have about 120, strong troops, neaar super men...
Im down him, and the spartans charge, my princepes hold strong, i move my general, and the last of his calvery guard to the rear of the phalanx... my
men are holding the spartans back, fighting to a stand still... the numbers are starting to get close to each other... i take my general, and his
remaining 7 calvery guard, and charge, down hill, full speed at the backs of the spartans... The calvery SMASH the line, and my general rides thru,
splitting the spartans... i pull my gen around the lin again... only a couple of horses left... no more then a dozen or so spartans, i charge in a
last gasp. and they break, the last dozen spartans become routed, and flee... when the battle ends i am left with 30 people alive and over 7700
enemies killed... it was intense...
The hardest fight i ever had vs the CPU... so intense...lasted over an hour...the win was so epic, and total, that the war with greece was practily
over after that battle, no large greek force would apear after... definatly my greatest open feild battle...
