Let’s continue with Parasite Eve. This is the first part of Day 2. There’ll probably be three updates for the day.
Day 2: Fusion
See, I’m not just making these up.
Well, this is just great.
ESP! Aliens! Everything IS out to get us. Unless you don’t believe.
New guns are always good!
Damn, it’s good to be a
gangsta cop. You get all the toys, for free.
This is what happens when you have too many items. Yes, your item inventory is limited in this game.
Is this the place?
Every guy must have a man-crush on Aya, or something.
BURN. Owned. Assorted net-speak!
Yak yak yak. Did Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy 7 have a kid or something? I JUST WANT A GUN!
It’s crazy powerful, but, slow as hell. But, it will prove useful.
But, but..girls don’t have ‘tool’s. Unless I fell asleep in Sex Ed, and everyone’s been lying to me.
Laydeez–please confirm/deny that you do not have a ‘tool’. Giggity giggity!
This is actually one of the best parts of Parasite Eve, which I’ll now call PE because typing ‘Parasite Eve’ gets old. You can take the stats from any gun and transfer it into another. Want a fast-shooting rifle? You got it! Extra slots in weapons are added with an item called a “Mod Permit”. This here can actually make or break your game. I’m just scratching the surface of it. I never got into it much during my first playthrough.
NYPD: Now accepting the vertically challenged.
Oh, it’s just Dan’s kid. What’s he doing here?
Oh, this is going to end well.
Oh, really well. A little kid, on the streets of New York. Alone.
The last four posts got to see my ‘O-face’. Oh, oh, oh, oh!
Obviously not very hard.
Can’t she get a little time to recover? I’d say that was a fairly traumatizing incident.
Well, someone obviously grew up in the “It does what it’s told” era. I was expecting more out of Aya.
Reporter: How about accounts of officers and firemen at the scene bursting into flames?
Aya: That was…
Baker: That was due to a rare, highly flammable chemical which was used to start the fire.
Reporter: Another question. Then how did Detective Brea survive without so much as a minor burn?
Baker: That is a result of her quick thinking and training as an officer…
Reporter: I’m asking HER the question!
Aya: She said that my mitochondria were a mutation.
Reporter: Your… mitochondria?
Aya: Melissa… No, she said she was Eve.
Reporter: But according to a report, Melissa Pearce was killed in the fire!
Aya: Melissa did die. Her body had been taken over by this… Eve.
Reporter: What’s this Eve!? Some kind of an alien!?
Baker: People, please! She is very tired, and we are still investigating…
That will be all for today!
OH NOS! LET’S NOT STIR UP SHIT! AND POSSIBLY PROTECT THE CITIZENS! OH NO! LET’S LIE!
Baker: Some Japanese scientist, I think. Couldn’t understand his English too well. He was raving about some mito-something… Says he’s coming over here.
Aya: Is it… Mitochondria?
Nix: You mean, that thing in the cell that makes energy from oxygen?
Daniel: Might have heard about that in school…
Aya: That’s what Eve had said… That it’s time for the mitochondria to be set free…
Nix: Hey, I just read that some researcher at the museum wrote a new theory on them.
Daniel: Sir, I’m taking Aya to go talk to this researcher.
Baker: Go. Better get there before the media. It may explain that phone call, too.
Daniel: Yes, sir. C’mon, Aya!
What’s this all about?
This is our
world city map. Not much to explain here.
Aya: Dr. Klamp… What’s his area of research?
Danny: Well, according to the papers, he’s working on a new theory… mitochondria something, but it seems to cover the whole genetic spectrum…
Aya: That’s odd… To have a Ph.D and be working in a museum…
Daniel: Well, he’s pretty anti-social and doesn’t like to waste time outside research.
Aya: Oh, GREAT… We’re gonna have a grand time with this one…
Danny: Yeah, yeah… I know where you’re going with this. Just be careful this time, huh?
Aya: …Are you referring to the press conference…?
Aya: Daniel, why do you kiss the chief’s butt? You two joined the force at the same time, didn’t you?
Danny: Yeah… But that was YEARS ago… Now, he’s my boss
Dun dun dun! Plot point?
Next update: The Wall of SCIENCE!
