Ryse: Son of Rome - Son of Combat Tutorial

Further proof that Crytek has something against the letter 'I'.

The decorations were crafted by Augustus Wayne.

"Daaad, are we going to have to fight to the death again?"

Is that why he was wearing armour at his parents' house?

Yes let's go though a combat tutorial after we already fought a whole bunch of guys defending the emperor earlier before getting to the flashback part.

I'm guessing Nero gets stabbed by the hero at the end of the game?

The game looks very disinteresting.
It might look more interesting if you did indeed play as a male stripper who dressed up in Roman General clothing.
Not sure why combat would be relevant however.

They seem pretty areligious for a setting where the statues CRY BLOOD !!!

Being authentic pays a lot more...

Also, why didn't the Emperor just go into the Panic room right when he needed to? Why did he wait for someone who most likely has a grudge against him over some family issues?

I love how that works in fantasy games. You've got all these people who aren't followers of the Gods, despite the Gods walking around and actively blowing people up/blessing them w/e =D. It takes a dedicated atheist to stay true to his beliefs whilst wandering round the halls of a God :P

What? Your statues of yourself DON'T cry blood? That is just a standard feature of stone. I know all of mine do it.

And what, light all those fires by himself? He's the emperor, dammit, he needs some lackeys. After all, where is a guy like him going to find slaves in ancient Rome?

Man, so many inconsistencies in this game. A combat tutorial, AFTER fighting through the first level?! If they're lighting fires in a sealed-off chamber, they'd better have some good ventilation. It seems that Crytek are better on the technical side of game design than, you know, story.

And Crytek's inability to tell a cohesive and/or interesting story continues!, but oh boy, does it look good... LOOK AT IT!.

I will build a time machine and take footage of this game back to ancient Rome, and watch as they laugh at it.

"Gods don't meddle in the affairs of mortals"

Really? Because if there's anything mythology has taught me that is precisely what they do. Like, exclusively.

* Hits own thumb with hammer* "OW! random-fluctuations-in-the-space-time-continuum damn it!"

Just doesn't have the same ring to it really....

Forget the torch, why the hell didn't they close that secret passage after themselves to throw off pursuers?

Wait, so you're fated to a particular path but choose your path? Welp, someone on the writing team didn't know what those words mean...

I know...
Its almost like the animator thought it was cool to show a miracle happening right on the screen, and the writer thought it was cool to make the protagonist the very first atheist. Some people thought this game was Rome, while others thought it was God of War... But that would imply a pretty poor job from the game director, and that would be crazy

Emperor Niro? more like Emperor Curly Howard.

Seriously, all I could hear in that first part was Woo-woo-woo-woo-woo-woo! nyuk-nyuk-nyuk!
