After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Gladiator Begins Screenshots

Torrance, CA (June 25th, 2010) - Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, proudly announces Gladiator Begins for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system!

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus was the last of the "Five Good Emperors". He was gifted with a brilliant mind, and his influence brought peace, both at home and abroad.
However, as Marcus entered his final years, the question of succession was raised, and tempers flared.

"Ah yes, ancient Rome," reminisces Ben Bateman, Localization Editor, Aksys Games, “A time when men were men, and women were also men, but in a different way! The
way where they kill each other to entertain a citizenry desperate for bloodsport! In 'Galadiator Begins', we've endeavored to give the player a chance to experience this legendary period of excitement, adventure, and untimely death. But don't worry-this is a video game, which means you will be meting out untimely death, rather than receiving it.”

There is no more period-accurate gladiator fighting game on the PSP system. On that you have my solemn word.”
