    :hmmm:

    [​IMG] I just finished my training at the military academy and I'm already on my first assignment. I've been assigned to planet Stronghold. Hopefully, I'll be stationed there a while.
    [​IMG] It's called Stronghold because it's the most well defended human planet in the whole galaxy. Yet, recent widespread rumor say there are some troubles on the planet itself. I don't know why I was assigned here. Normally, only the best make it into this base. Not that I'm complaining, of course.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Yes sir, I am.
    [​IMG] Pleased to meet you, I'm Lt. Shatz. Welcome to Stronghold.
    [​IMG]

    :lol:

    [​IMG] Listen, I've been busy, and I haven't had time to read your full profile on my PDA. Would you be so kind as to provide me with some info?

    We walk into the hangar zone leading to the inner city.

    [​IMG] What? Must you really ask me now?
    [​IMG] Hmm...maybe I should write you up already...
    [​IMG] Err...sorry, I mean..what do you need to know, sir?
    [​IMG] All right, that's better. First of all, in which field did you specialize?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Leaving it to you.

    :lol: I'm going back to work.

    Psionic, we will use our BRAINS to win the war, or find the macguffin, or make sweet love to the ladies, or whatever it is we're going to do in this rollicking adventure.

    Fun fact: "Schatz" in German not only means treasure but is also the most used nickname between life partners. So, will you be able to romance Lt. Honey?
    Also, Psionic.

    [​IMG] Then, you must have nano-implants so you can skilfully utilize the power of your mind. Great, we need more of your type around here.

    [​IMG] Psionics are specialized in fighting with their mental powers. They can use powers both for offense or defense, but are the worst class in using traditional weapons.

    Primary Skills: Medicine, Psionic Training, Heal & Harm.
    Secondary Skills: Charisma, Science & Survival.

    [​IMG] As for Guardians, they are special offensive units. that prefer to fight using Heavy & Energy Weapons, know how to use Explosives and can wear powerful Armors. They receive basic Training in offensive Psionic skills.

    Primary Skills: Heavy Weapons, Energy Weapons, Explosives & Armor
    Secondary Skills: Repair, Lockpick, Harm & Disrupt.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fucking hell. How am I gonna pop-a-mole through this? Isn't this a visual novel? Why am I forced to calculate numbers? Let's hope the skill numbers aren't ...

    [​IMG]

    ...I am in awe.

    [​IMG]

    Wait, you said I have Charisma secondary skill...does that mean-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm eager to start my training, sir!
    [​IMG] Good! I like your enthusiasm- Hold on! Look there! Those RoboAnts...they're attacking!
    [​IMG] (RoboAnts? Those don't sound too friendly. Anyway, looks like my training will start sooner than I expected...)
    [​IMG]

    Just a bunch of RoboAnts...I'll do a biotic warp...then combo it with throw. Then roll down to cover as I unload my scoped Phalanx V. No problemo.

    [​IMG] Here they come!

    [​IMG]
    :hmmm: This...can't...be...

    It looks like that this game is not just a parody of Mass Erect, as it has turn based combat and stats. Interesting...

    I give up bros. I'm not up to learning this arithmetical combat rules. Power Attack, Burst, Aimed Shot. What the fuck is this shit? I just hold the trigger and bullets come out right? Even Psionics have three flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, or Ice Cream. TMI.

    Jesus, so outdated and non-mainstream. No wonder they can't sell this trash on Steam.

    Spoken like a true Biotard Biodrone :M You forgot to add that technology back in the old days made impossible to have cinematic experiences such as nowadays games, hence why they focused on outdated and unplayable turn-based shit. Something that it cannot be done today, as we're not in 1996 anymore.

    My, my RK47...
    For a moment I thought you finally found something therapeutic to help you recover from Mass Effect 3, Katawa Shoujo and a dance with rogues...

    First Battle

    To attack enemies. Simply click on the pictures on top of the screen.

    Higher concentration when unleashing Psionic attacks leads to higher damage and hit chance. But keep in mind it consumes more PPs. I should use low-concentration Harm just to ease things up.

    [​IMG] Take this!
    [​IMG]

    That is odd. I thought their armor is resistant against Psionic damage, how come my Psionic still does its full damage? Never mind.

    [​IMG] Not bad, Nelson! My turn!

    Lt. Tom is a Guardian, he doesn't need to waste time with biotics, we'll unleash pain with a series of normal attacks.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Tom's series of attacks finds their mark, dealing 10 damage apiece, the weakened RoboAnt falls to his second attack.

    [​IMG] Target down!
    [​IMG] I'll harm the last one as well!
    [​IMG] I'll finish it, Josh!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Victory!

    [​IMG] You fought well, Nelson!
    [​IMG]

    Shouldn't be too modest about the whole thing. :smug:

    [​IMG] Well, it seems they didn't teach you much about modesty at the academy. In any case -

    [​IMG]

    Whoa.

    [​IMG] Oh. Uh, pleased to meet you, Miss?
    [​IMG]

    :lol:

    [​IMG] My name's Rebecca Fox. Sergeant Fox. The best scout in this entire colony.
    [​IMG] Sergeant Fox is a big talker, but honestly she is a good sniper.
    [​IMG] Damn right I am!
    [​IMG]
    :thumbsup:
    [​IMG] It's a pleasure meeting you, Sergeant Fox. My name's Joshua Nelson.
    [​IMG] Nelson? That sounds familiar...

    [​IMG]

    What about *me*?

    [​IMG] May I ask one thing, Sergeant Fox?
    [​IMG] What is it?
    [​IMG] You said my name sounded familiar?
    [​IMG] Hmm? Oh, yes. My father used to tell me stories about a general named Nelson. If I remember well, his name was John Nelson, and he was a hero on this planet.
    [​IMG] Oh, really?
    [​IMG] Yes. It was thanks to him that we managed to settle here. He was key in repelling the alien invasion in the founding years.
    [​IMG] We can't be sure about that.

    Damn you, cockblocker.

    [​IMG] What do you mean, sir?
    [​IMG] That war was ferocious, and many data archives were completely destroyed. We have no hard evidence, so they must remain legends, unfortunately. But still, I've heard of that Nelson as well.
    [​IMG] Oh, I'm honored to carry such a famous name!
    [​IMG] As you should be. I expect great things from you now, you know. I've pulled up your personal file on my PDA, Nelson. It says that... you lost both your parents when you were a child.
    [​IMG] Yes sir, I was only five years old. I don't remember much about them. I only know they were both... assassinated... on my home colony on Mars. I was raised in an orphanage and then decided to join the military.
    [​IMG] Curious, your father worked several years here as a scientist. It seems he was working on a cure for some new diseases discovered on this planet. And your father's father was born here as well...

    Wow, what a coincidence that I am also a badass! :smug:
