,he ;olosseum
by ;hristian !alis
,he ;olosseum is $ome s most famous
site and tourist attraction" 1t is a truly
impressi-e structure" Aowe-er the $omans
were occupied by things other than its
magnificence" Cnlike the present7day -isitor
they went to the ;olosseum for a -ery
particular kind of entertainment" 3ork began
on the structure in AD (+ and lasted for
almost twel-e years" >ach le-el of seats were
used by persons of different rank" 5ear the
arena in the centre of the ;olosseum were
boxes and seats for the >mperor his family
and other high7ranking officials" ,here were
special entrances for the more pri-ileged"
>ighty archways pro-ided access to the
amphitheatre four of which could only be used
by the >mperor" Beneath the arena were a
network of corridors and rooms where wild
beasts and
humans in cages
were held" ,here was
also a lift operated
by an elaborate
system of weights"
,he arena was a
flat space co-ered
with sand to soak
up the blood of the -ictims" A sophisticated
de-ice was used to flood parts of the arena
for the mock sea battles" A group of sailors
was stationed around the building to gi-e
shade to the spectators by using a huge
canopy" Due to the gladiators fights to death
and other appalling sights we rarely see the
;olosseum in a positi-e light"

,hose watching for years the :rench de-eloper Ouantic Dream
know -ery well the potential" Both in P:ahrenheitP (1ndigo
8rophecy)his first bestseller and their next success PAea-y
$ainP they always like to create that bond between the
Ad-entures with the protagonists ",hey con-ey the feeling of li-ing
persons and situations through the eyes of the same actors "
Another main feature that was key to the success of Aea-y $ain
is a real and substantial change of the story depending on your
actions" ,his is achie-ed through dialogue and 9uick7time e-ents
where you ha-e to press buttons in the time re9uested" 1t is
based on the already successful recipe of PBeyond< ,wo !oulsP"
,his is one of the most high7profile exclusi-es of !ony mainly
because of the prehistory of :rench de-elopersand it is worth
noting that !ony Aellas responded to another big date in which
the -ersion that you buy from shops is accompanied by @reek
subtitles "
P1n Aea-y $ainP the script constantly switches from one
character to another always with the right timing of e-ents" ,he
shots are really fast to keep you awake" 1n Beyond< ,wo !ouls
the failureto switch characters is replaced by merciless back and
forth in the life of 4odie" One minute she is a grown woman
the other a little girl and in between a teenager who tries to
find herself and make her re-olution " All these always under
sur-eillance because on the hand you are the sa-ior of the
people and on the other a public 7 risk a double7edged sword
which the go-ernment of the country ends up at inter-als to
treat as a public threat"
,he three other players who work for the go-ernment 5athan
Dawkins ;ole :reeman and $yan ;layton are entwined in the life
of 4odie for separate reasons and moti-ations " ,hey constitute
an important part of life and sometimes bring her into trouble"
1f you had e-en a little to do with Aea-y $ain your first contact
with the Beyond< ,wo !ouls will look -ery familiar" 4odie mo-es with
the left analog stick while the right interacts with the landmarks
that she sees around her and which are represented by a dot"
3hen you press the right analog on them then usually what
follows is a cutscene and sometimes 9uick7time e-ents"1n the
9uick7time e-ents you should use the correct se9uence of
buttons to fight a battle" >-en if you do not succeed at first
most times you are gi-en a second e-en third chance " ,he
game is much more forgi-ing of mistakes and because there are
no alternati-e players it you donFt die so easily " ,o sum up
your acti-ities in some missions include riding as well as action
scenes with free mo-ement of the heroine " $egarding the
latter you can make some stealth attacks( blindness >ither the

On ,hursday 5o-ember (th our school went on a
trip to the Art ,heatre" >-en though the weather was 9uite
cloudy we managed to stay dry on our way there and
,he play we watched was called P;hatroomP" 1tFs
about six teenagers who con-erse online and how each of
them -iew the world and their problems in a uni9ue way" 1t
was -ery interesting mostly because many of our
classmates probably share the same problems and concerns
with the characters"
Cndoubtedly it made most of us think about our
li-es and the way we choose to li-e them? 1t s a play 1
strongly recommend all teenagers to see?
