You don't need to read a history book to know that Rome was a
thriving empire bent on conquest, or a rich fantasy world populated
by minotaurs, cyclopses and hobbits. Either way, you don't need a
fancy history degree to know it was probably one of those.
You also don't need to go to four years of BS history school to
get an all-class laurel wreath. You just need to pre-purchase Total
War: Rome II. Once you get the wreath, try equipping it in a game
of Mann vs. Machine to watch history come alive with an authentic
Rome-Bot Invasion. You don't have to be a fat know-nothing history
professor to figure out that we painstakingly researched every
single aspect of these Ancient Roman robots for 100% historical
accuracy, from going to the library only to find it closed to
remembering stuff about that trip we took to Italy once, which is
probably close to Rome.
So pre-purchase today to get your laurel, and sock it to those
history majors who think they know more about Ancient Rome history
than you just because you dropped out of their stupid history
college after one semester and they got a smelly diploma.
