Total War: ROME REMASTERED – Release Trailer – Take Back Your Empire

My alarm clock woke me up suddenly from my dream causing me to forget most of my dreams, I do know that one of my dreams involved the video game Rome Total War and / or Rome Total War Remastered.

I assume that I was playing one or both of those video games, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

What is it?

The YouTube video ROMANS ARE OVERPOWERED!!! Rome Total War Remastered Is A Perfectly Balanced Game With No Exploits by the YouTube channel The Spiffing Brit.

Here is the description for the video above:

Welcome back to Rome total war, but this time REMASTERED! In Rome TW we will be playing as the house of Julii a faction of Romans who are tasked with invading Gaul and then later conquering the entire Roman Empire! Now when it comes to the historical accuracy of Rome: Total War Remastered, we will be pushing the fabric of reality and history by just exploiting the AI factions for free land! This is going to allow us to perfectly balance Total War Rome and find a way to beat the game in just 12 turns! How can we conquer 50 settlements and Rome in just 12 turns? Well with the power of infinite money, AI bugs and free land exploits anything is possible!

This video is going to be packed with funny clips in a montage style of British humor! If you enjoyed this, then check out my other 100 stat man and perfectly balanced game series videos!
It is also rather similar to Robbaz, Valefisk and RT Game in style of content!

So sit back, relax and enjoy this total war Rome remastered with the power of exploiting the AI and infinite money! Can The Spiffing Brit Break this perfectly balanced game by getting 1 million in the first few turns, or maybe get 1 million gold on turn 2! Oh my, what a challenge!

Title: Rome TW But I Exploit the AI For Free Land – Rome: Total War Remastered Is A Perfectly Balanced Game

Sink Or Swim

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Sink Or Swim, and this is what it said:

Tell us about a time when you were left on your own, to fend for yourself in an overwhelming situation — on the job, at home, at school.

What was the outcome?

And this is my response:

Instead of giving an example directly from my own personal life I will instead use the first example that came to my mind from many years ago when I was playing the video game Rome: Total War.

I had a few units (maybe three or four) of Spartan Hoplites together in a small army that I was sending across the map to join with one of my larger armies, but on the way we got attacked/ambushed by a very large army of many units near a forest; and we could not avoid the battle, and so we had to fight this battle with only three or four units of Spartan Hoplites against an army with many units.

My general gave a speech before the battle started and then when the battle started I immediately sent my Spartan Hoplites to hide in the forest using the trees to cover their flanks while we use the phalanx formation to cover our fronts, and I wanted the enemy to have to split up and find me and have to fight my units from the front of their phalanx where we would have the advantage.

My plan lured a few units of the enemy into the forest right into one of my phalanx formations, my unit was holding them even though they were greatly out-numbered, and eventually I flanked them with another unit and we were winning; but eventually the other general sent in more of their units into the forest to surround us and finish us off, and I was forced to move all of my Spartan Hoplites together in a circle formation near some trees to cover their flanks while they all used the phalanx formation to cover their fronts.

This was my last stand, we were surrounded and my units were a bit tired after fighting for a long time and out-numbered, but my Spartan Hoplites kept fighting and the morale was still high enough where they were not going to route/flee so they were going to fight to the death; and eventually we routed some of the enemy units, and this caused some of the other enemy units to flee as well.

This left an opening on the battlefield that allowed me to flank some of their units causing heavy casualties on their side causing more of their units to flee, we started to chase some of their units, but then I let my units rest a bit as I waited for the enemy general unit and several of their other units to attack us.

I used one unit to distract the enemy general and his units and I flanked them with my other units, we probably killed the enemy general during the battle causing his units to flee, but then some of the previous enemy units who were fleeing stopped fleeing to attack us again; and so I spent the rest of the battle fighting off units who kept fleeing and then returning to fight until eventually the other army completely fled the battlefield after taking heavy casualties, and we won the battle.

After the battle my surviving Spartan Hoplites eventually reached one of my main armies, they healed up and trained up and built-up their units again, and eventually were able to move out with the rest of my armies to continue conquering the map.

That battle was basically my own Battle Of Thermopylae.

My Own Bedroom Inside A Building?

I forgot most of my dreams after being awakened during the night because of flea bites and having to use the bathroom and I did not voice record my dreams, and so now I only barely remember part of the end of my last dream.

I think that part of my last dream that I can not remember was inspired by Dashie’s (Charlie Guzman’s) gameplay(s) of the video game Outlast and by the music video for the song Deeper Underground by Jamiroquai which I remember hearing in the dream and/or in my mind when I woke up, and both of which I watched before going to sleep:

One part of the dream that I can not remember took place outside and another part of the dream involved maybe something scary happening like in the video game Outlast that possibly took place in an underground part of a building or an underground building, but that is all that I can remember of this forgotten part of the dream.

Later in the dream during the day I walked and/or drove down a fictional road probably near B Park in the city of D that usually goes through several fictional small towns until you reach a fictional city somewhat like the city of LC, and I went to a windowless building that had many hallways and rooms that were all carpeted in a medium-to-dark color.

My family was there and I remember other people there as well going to maybe one or more businesses that were in one or more rooms, and one of the rooms in the hallway was a bedroom that was familiar to me and it had some things from my childhood in the room like the shoe shelf that used to be in the closet of one of my bedroom’s which is now my brother GC’s bedroom.

This bedroom seemed to be a fictional bedroom of mine that I would sometimes use but it looked like it had been a long time since I last used it because there was an ant pile against the wall by the shoe shelf and another shelf along the wall, and the ants were going to an open bottle of Huy Fong Foods Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce that was on the floor.

I picked up the bottle of hot chili sauce and I threw it in a trashcan and I started moving the shelves so that I could sweep up the ant pile, and then put some ant poison or something on the floor; and then my brother GC entered the bedroom, I asked him about the bottle of hot chili sauce, and he said that it was him who accidentally left it on the floor long ago.

After I finished cleaning my former classmate AK came to visit me and I showed him around the bedroom and we talked about the past, and I remember asking if he had seen certain movies like Inception and if he had played certain video games like Rome: Total War; and I showed him a movie trailer that was either its own film or a fictional scene from the movie Inception, and even in the dream I was not sure.

There was more that happened in the dream, but this is all that I can remember.

The end,
