If you have ten minutes, you should watch this city get attacked while James Russell, the lead designer on Total War: Rome II, goes into detail with the new mechanics.
I have played every Total War game to date, and they have always been small iterations on the previous title. This one seems different -- like a leap forward to a new generation. Visually, Rome II looks amazing, and more depth has been added with subtle things like facial animations for each soldier. The battle they show off is one of the new hybrid battles; it starts on sea and it crosses over to land. I can't wait until the end of next year to get my grubby little paws on the game.

Fenriff Someone on Gamefaqs asking the real questions. How mad would you be if halfway through the Mad Max game he stumbles upon a tribe of kids and the rest of the game is a lighthearted romp?MeanderBot I think, for my first try, I drew a pretty damn good Ryu, if I do say so myself

This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.Flegma Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.
