This game is shaping up quite well. I think this will be a launch day game, digitally downloaded of course :) This will fit a niche that when its been a stressful day I can come home and hack some people to pieces. :D

I'm really exited about this game. But I'm disappointed at the lack of lions and Christians been eaten by lions. :(

One Pilum, many Pila. You got's to talk like a Roman!

So, despite the fact that the symbols don't appear, is it still quite QTE lead? It does annoy me when games constantly tell you which buttons to press. I know I have to press A to climb on to that ledge, I don't need to be told every time. Tell me once or put it in the manual, I'm not a moron. Even the most stupid and forgetful of people should remember which buttons to press, surely?

Like a prosthetic warehouse.

Could they add badgers to the proceedings? They are much more fierce than a lion, tiger or bear when either cornered or criticised for their evening wear.

Isn't that the one that's fine, if you've got the time, and a 10 to get yourself in?
