    Last time Warden Montfag refused to co-operate and even made distasteful sexual comments. He'll definitely regret this decision when we introduce him to a world of pain...






    EPISODE IV : KILLING TIME







    Now, where were we?

    [​IMG]


    Right. Warden made his choice and he'll face the consequences.

    [​IMG]

    We'll just let him drown in a pool of his own blood...

    [​IMG]


    We got his key, but he had enough time to sound the alarm. Time to slaughter everything... Hmm, the guards can use their shield for temporary protection. Emphasis on the word "temporary"...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    What the... new enemy. These spiders are a bit annoying since they move fast and fall on you from the cieling. Plus, they make a very creepy sound when they're approaching.

    [​IMG]


    Hey, we found some of the prisoners, but we can't open the cells yet. They don't want to bitch. Yet, they bitch.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Yeah, the sky... hold on to that thought, I'll be back.
    Found another new enemy, some kind of robotic floater. This Order seems to have a lot of different toys for us to kill.

    [​IMG]


    We've reached an elevator, let's go to the upper level.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    More prisoners, and some kind of special torture chamber in the middle... Or is it a sex-slave cage? Who knows.

    [​IMG]


    Damn, these floaters are everywhere...

    [​IMG]


    Hey, we've found the Main Control! I bet this is where cell controls are. Crap, it has an elaborate security system...

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]It's a hand scanner switch. Try to find a way to open it.


    Ok, further on we find some kind of shrine. After we kill some cannon fodder acolytes, Cloud finds a switch... Yay, a secret door !

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Secret doors are always good fun. But it's time to visit the judge and have a word...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Oh my god, you cut off his hand! And I thought you were a nice guy...

    [​IMG] Hey, it's called "resourcefulness"


    I'm sure Blackbird likes bad boys... Wait, can she actually see everything we do? Is that COM unit so powerful? Was she watching us that time we went into the Barracks' WC with the November edition of "Hot Mutated Girls" and...

    Nevermind, let's focus on the loot.

    [​IMG]


    And now that we have Judge's hand it's time to go to main control and open all the cells.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Yay, all these worthless bums are set free again.

    [​IMG]


    Except that guy in the torture chamber. I don't know how he got in, but the idiot can't come out... Oh well, you can't save them all.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Way to go ! Now jump on the teleporter and we'll bring you back to base.


    [​IMG]


    Let's talk to Macil. I'll hope he'll give us more than just a pat on the back...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I will, what's next ?

    [​IMG] A single crystal runs the power grid which drives the order's shields. Destroy that crystal and you will punch huge holes in the order's defenses. Blackbird will lead you to a spy who has a way in. Good luck.

    [​IMG]Don't worry, we'll get it.


    But first let's go to the medic, I wonder what he has in store for us...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] How about giving me one of those nifty implants ?

    [​IMG]All right, this won't take but a moment.


    Not bad! Now, on to the arms trainer:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]Teach me some ninja tactics

    [​IMG]ok, I'll just show you some little pointers.


    Aha! We've got both our accuracy and stamina increased... It's an ARPEEGEE !
    It actually makes a difference in combat since our projectiles can hit the target from a greater distance and the damage the daggers do has increased.

    [​IMG]


    Now we must seek and destroy the crystal and take care of some loose ends. Cakewalk for an experienced guy like Cloud Strife.

    Yes, there's one in the governor's mansion in the demo, and I think you get it from Irale in the full version.

    The flamethrower is actually one of the most powerful weapons since it 'locks' enemies. Especially useful against crusaders, reavers and templars.

    Also, burning acolytes tend to ignite other acolytes. :twisted:

    Though, when it comes to mass incineration, WP grenades have no equal.

    Ready for some more badassery ? We've got stuff to do for the Front, but first there is something else we should deal with. There is a certain back-stabbing governing bastard that needs to taste the bitter end of a blade...





    EPISODE V - PART I : BRING DOWN THE GOVERNMENT





    So, why don't we pay Governor Mourel a visit?

    [​IMG]Hello gov, I want to talk to you about something that concerns you.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]Let me rephrase this...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    And the best part is that the alarm does not sound. This is because we've used our new insta-kill poison arrows. Great stuff , but unfortunately hard to find, at least in the beginning. If we use this , or the punch daggers, it's considered a stealth kill. Nothing smells better than a dead Governor in the morning.

    Let's also loot his vault.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Blackbird is buzzing, better not keep the lady waiting...


    [​IMG] The spy we've recruited is called Worner and he's in the warehouse of the power station. He can help you reach the reactor core.


    Power station, it is.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Ok, we got inside pretty easy , but to reach the core area we'll need an ID. So, we better find the spy.The foreman seems to be a sincere man:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    In search for Worner, Cloud talks to the various warehouse workers. It seems the Front made it's move right on time...

    [​IMG]


    At last we find our man.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Strife is my name, danger is my game.

    [​IMG] Right... I stole an I.D. from the corpse of some fool who fell into the reactor's coolant pit. --BLAT-- instant deep fry.

    BLAT?

    [​IMG] Uhuh, what should I do once I'm in ?

    [​IMG] Tell whoever asks that you're the replacement worker for Mr. Crispy. It's dumb enough to work. Oh, and you might want to check the storeroom that's right above us.

    [​IMG] Boy, I hope this ID works.


    BLAT?


    Hmm, the storeroom must have some good weapons, but we don't have the key yet... Hey, what is that cave in the distance? Let's check it out.

    [​IMG]

    It's a good thing these weapons are water-proof...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Secret entrance ! There is a scientist here:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Did you say "weapons" , my good man ?

    [​IMG] What do you think. we're backed up on shocks?

    [​IMG] What kind of weapons ?

    [​IMG] Are you deaf? I just told you how busy I am. Get back to work.


    Well, that was impolite, to say the least.


    [​IMG]You know , since he's involved with the weapons distribution, he may have the key to the store house...


    My dear Blackbird, I like the way you're thinking. Let's go all ninja on him.


    [​IMG]

    BLAT!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Well, well, it's the key! Stealth kills are fun. Time to raid the storage...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Fuck yeah ! A Missile Launcher ! I can feel my negotiating skills rising with this baby.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Mmm, it's always nice to have more firepower.


    Right you are, Blackbird, right you are. I think we're ready to go into the inner area now.

    EPISODE V - PART II : CRYSTAL CLEAR









    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm the new guy. :flashes ID card:

    [​IMG] Oh, ok. Sure go ahead. Have a nice day.



    [​IMG] Remember, kill with stealth instead of force and you wont set off the alarm.



    That's good advice. Ok we're inside, but the reactor door is sealed.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    NO, YOU ! (stealth kill)

    [​IMG]


    Heh, easy prey. Since we can move freely let's ninja-kill some more guards in the area...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Hmm, I wonder where do the these stairs lead.

    [​IMG]


    What? why did the alarm set off? Look I'm a worker, here's my ID ! Shit, let's try it the rocket launcher way...

    [​IMG]


    Yep, this way works. There's a technician here...

    [​IMG]


    Don't worry we're gonna give the crystal that extra push it needs... Hmm I have no idea what this button does, but something tells me I should push it.

    [​IMG]


    Time to move further inside the facility. We meet some resistance , but they don't resist much.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Hey, another technician. Are they goddamn clones?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm the replacement worker

    [​IMG] About time you showed up. GO talk with Kerick in the core. Oh, and take this key card. Don't want you getting shot on your first day. huh ?

    [​IMG] Where's the power crystal ?

    [​IMG]If you don't get to work, you'll get shot anyway. Move your tunic !


    Move my tunic? HA, good one.

    I guess he didn't saw me kill a couple of guards right next to him. Or maybe that's standard procedure around here. If you're strong enough to kill some guards you can make it to the guy who gives the clearance cards. Anyway, now that we have the card, the security leaves us alone... Hmm? let me make a wild guess, it's another tech guy...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Suicide run ?

    [​IMG] That's not important right now. Go down the lift , if you're so inclined.


    Riiight. I wonder who is this "ultimate programmer" .


    [​IMG] Hmph... Nobody likes programmers much, anyway. Especially those that like to show off with their new-bought supercars and trophy wives.


    Hmm, was this remark towards, John or Brad? Maybe both.


    Anyway, let's go down. Well, it doesn't seem too dangerous...

    [​IMG]


    ooops.

    [​IMG]


    So, now that we have the card, we can finally enter the reactor area! Let's pick up those environmental suits and move on...

    [​IMG]


    Eh? why is the screen turning green? Shit, it's the radiation from the reactor... Good thing we've got these suits.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Ouch! I'm glad I'm in hiding , if you know what I mean...


    I sure don't, Blackbird. I sure don't.

    Now, let's see if we can learn more about this damn crystal.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Wow, this job sounds great. Can't wait to start !

    [​IMG] Yeah, right. Ok, get your ass to work.

    [​IMG] Uh uh. So, where's the crystal ?

    [​IMG] Go talk to Ketrick. Bring the walkway up using the switches, then use this ID for the elevator.

    [​IMG] Cool, where's the crystal again ?

    [​IMG] None of your business. Go talk to Kendrick.


    FUCK. Ketrick better tell us about the Crystal, or they'll see our bad side.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yessir ! Right on, sir! Here's my card.

    [​IMG] This is garbage ! Wait here. Oh screw it. Guards, kill this intruder !

    [​IMG] WHAT? Screw YOU, motherfucker !

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    No more mr. nice guy, let's BLAT these guards into pieces.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] The crystal must be someplace nearby. Word from the boss says to stay back when you destroy the crystal, or you'll end blown up too.


    Hmm, this switch maybe? YES!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Take that, Shinra! Your evil factory will no longer drain the life-force of the planet !

    What? Snap out of this shit, Cloud.


    [​IMG] Let's bust this joint. There's more fun to be had.


    I hope that was an innuendo, BB. But you're right, we'd better leave before more guards are summoned.

    Too late. Oh, well... :Puts song in player:

    "Bring your guards and your spiders..."

    [​IMG]

    "...to the slauuuuuuughter..."

    [​IMG]

    "...Let them come, let them come, let them come..."

    [​IMG]


    Ok, we're finally out.

    [​IMG]


    Hmm , it seems Macil will now give us some more upgrades. Amen to that. Let's visit Irale first.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] All right, here's a few pointers on what to do: Don't get in the way of Crusaders: firing short bursts from your assault gun keeps it on target.

    [​IMG] Thanks, is that it?

    [​IMG] Also, if you manage to get one of those flamethrowers the crusaders have, I could convert it for you to use.


    Great! Now to the medic's :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] "Ready" is my middle name, doc.

    [​IMG] Well then, Cloud "Ready" Strife, this won't take but a second. There, done already.

    Level Up !

    [​IMG]


    Ok, now what?


    [​IMG] The order thinks that they're secure in the castle... Wrong. If you open the gate, they'll be easy pickings. But, for that we'll have to get down to the sewers.


    You mean, I'll have to get down to the sewers. Crap, it's always the damn sewers. Oh well, the sewers it is.
