"From forth the fatal loins of these two foes

"Oh, come on! This isn't a spoiler! The very first image in the game is a brief flash-forward depicting your character's helmet lying discarded in the dust and battle-scarred terrain; what the fuck do you think happens at the end? Your character thrillingly and climatically gets a little bit hot?"

"But the main problem is that because it's based on a real shop, opened by a real man, there's not much real jeopardy. So the opening episode was a nail-biting tale of 'Will he or won't he open the shop?' when you know he did, then we had 'Will he or won't he open a perfume counter?' which you also know he did. And recently we had 'Is he or isn't he dead?' when you know he won't be. It's a bit like a whodunnit called 'Colin is Guilty.'"

"I've got to admit, I totally saw that coming."
