Ah, now that is the question isn't it? The tweet did say world wide unless you think there is something your government will ban it for. Palmer maybe?  ;D
Praise Bird Jesus!

Our Prime Minister called Snowden a 'traitor'. I'm sure they are fine with Palmer.

  • No. There is more. But you are not worthy. Not yet
There's Flood in SA? Guess I missed a bit when I didn't get the expansion. Downloading now. :)

Edit: Oh, I get it now. Still, that opening cinematic was interesting. Guess the general public doesn't know about the Flood outbreak or that there were friendly Covenant on Earth at that time?

Also, SA crashes like a mofo on Xbox. I haven't even been able to start campaign yet. :/

They put out an update, no more crashing. Enjoying trying to get higher scores than my friends, and Flood is motherfucking intense.
Unbelievably bitchin' Lego dropships don't just build themselves.

I've beaten the campaign, as well as co-op, gotten about half the achievements, have gold on a little over half the levels. Aiming to have the best score out of all of my friends as well.

Also, may have changed by now, but earlier I noticed I had the fourth best global score for one of the missions.

I don't think I'm gonna get to really play it until the end of the month, too much stuff going on.

I'm gonna need a cruise to relax from the stress of trying to go on this damn cruise.

Just don't lose power. Or run aground. Or have an outbreak. Or fall overboard.

That about covers the recent cruise disasters I've heard off...

  • There has been much talk. And i have listened...
I just picked it up on steam. Played for like an hour. Got bored out of my skull. Quit out. Uninstalled it.
Was there anything of any fictional significance in this thing?

PS: did anyone else die like a million times by touching the wolverine on that one escort mission? Cause I did, And it pissed me off

Spartan Davis dies and a Forerunner device holds him in limbo as it tries to build something from his body. He finds a way to transmit to Palmer "Help me." She turns off the device to allow him to die before we can see why the Forerunner tech was trying to build something out of a living thing.

I think I just gave you more context than Spartan Assault did. The quote below is literally all the explanation we got:

"The transmission was Davis's call for help, just before he died. That planet was made to build things out of galactic material. And it tried to build something out of what was left of Davis. I shut it down."

Pointless, stupid... yet I still find that somewhat interesting. Why would a Forerunner device try to build something out of a living Spartan?

Oh also the moon orbiting this planet was a Forerunner construct that's basically a Death Star. So the Forerunners may have installed multiple Death Stars around Flood-infected or Flood-vulnerable planets or something. But yeah... no more story than that.

I still really liked the game, especially because it and Escalation are the only productions that have featured vehicles and enemies from different games all together. Which is awesome.

I just had a weekend playing shared screen co-op games on my pc with one of my high school buddies.

The main issue with SA I think was the mobile bite-sized nature of the missions and how they broke up the story, made it much harder to follow. The Death Star thing made sense to me as another Flood countermeasure.

I thought I missed what you were talking about ,but then I realized I still haven't finished Hydra yet :P
