Continue on with Veteran Observed Day

On¬†with the soldiers, even though I’m late.

You read it right, I continue to post video game soldiers, even though I missed the deadline to post that exact day. Well, we saw this one coming, gotta love and respect those soldiers, eta, eta. The real main reason why I’m posting soldiers is that I needed to continue on my conversation with soldiers this entire weekend.

That and I got nothing to post about this weekend. Trust me when I don’t have, anything to text about. Even so, I should have at least put in more effort in my blog (at least people). There are still some wounded soldiers left to carry on with the duty. And nobody finishes until they win the war.ūü§íūü§ēūüė§

Give them support to end this mad war. Below are my lost few brave men left to finish the job.

A ghost enemy: F.E.A.R. 1

See the source image

The game begins with a man named Paxton Fettel taking command of a battalion of telepathically controlled clone super soldier’s, seizing control of Armachham Technology corporation headquarters, and killing all its occupants.

The player then takes control of the Point Man, working for an organization known as F.E.A.R., attending a briefing held by Commissioner Rowdy Betters, in the company of his F.E.A.R. teammates Spen Jankowski and Jin Sunkwon. The team’s mission is to eliminate Fettel, operating in conjunction with Delta Force. Fettel is located by means of a satellite tracking device and hunted by F.E.A.R. and Delta Force over several locations.

While the villain evades capture by the special forces, the player witness unexplained, and occasionally life-threatening, paranormal phenomena, including hallucinations that frequently affect him, all of which are centered on a red-dressed little girl named Alma.

Laptops found in the course of the mission, remotely hacked by Commissioner Betters, provide details regarding the background story.The player learns how Fettel was raised to become a telepathic military commander. That he is the son of Alma, who was born before Fettel.

All clues lead F.E.A.R. to believe Fettel is being controlled by Alma, who was locked in the Origin facility when ATC closed down the project owing to the danger the woman posed; Fettel is searching for that same facility to free his mother.

The player takes the Point Man to the abandoned structure, fighting back both the clone soldiers and ATC guards, who have received orders to cover up the whole affair.

When the protagonist comes to finally face Fettel, he is drawn into a a halluuncnation where the player learns how the Point Man is Alma’s first son and is thereafter enabled to kill Fettel himself.

Alma is nonetheless freed when her storage chamber is opened by ATC researcher and leader of Project Origin, Harlan Wade, who felt guilty over the company’s treatment of Alma and who was actually her father.

The player is then called to sabotage the structure’s reactor, running a gaunlet against Alma’s ghost before the whole location explodes.

Survive even more deadly ugly zombie: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

See the source image

On September 28, 1998, 24 hours prior to the events of Resident Evil 2, former Special Tactics And Rescue Service member Jill Valentine attempts to escape  from Raccoon City.

Most of the population has been transformed into zombies by an outbreak of the T-virus, a new type of biological weapon secretly developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella. On her way to the Raccoon City Police Department, Jill runs into fellow team member Brad Vickers, who is killed by a new enemy.

This creature, Nemesis, is a bio-organic weapon programmed to target surviving S.T.A.R.S. members, witnesses of Umbrella’s experiments. As she evades Nemesis, Jill encounters three surviving members of the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service:¬†Carlos Oliveira, Mikhail Victor and Nikolai Zinoview. Nikolai explains to Jill and Carlos that a rescue helicopter can be contacted if they manage to reach the city’s Clock Tower and ring the bell.

As they make their way to the tower, Nikolai disappears and is presumed dead, while Nemesis corners the remaining members of the group on the cable car headed to the tower. Mikhail sacrifices himself with a grenade, causing the car to crash into the tower’s main courtyard and separating Jill and Carlos briefly.

At the Clock Tower, Jill summons the helicopter by ringing the Clock Tower’s bell before being confronted by Nemesis, which destroys the helicopter and infects Jill with the T-virus.

Jill manages to temporarily defeat Nemesis but falls unconscious due to the T-Virus. Carlos finds Jill and takes her to safety within the Clock Tower. Three days later, he manages to find a cure for Jill’s T-Virus infection in the Raccoon City General Hospital. He returns to Jill and injects her with a vaccine, saving her.

After she regains consciousness, Jill proceeds towards the Raccoon Park and enters the park caretaker’s cabin. There, she runs into Nikolai, who is alive. Nikolai is revealed to be one of the “supervisors” sent into Raccoon City to gather combat data of Umbrella’s bio-weapons.

Nikolai retreats, and Jill is confronted by a massive worm-like creature. Jill defeats the creature and escapes to an abandoned factory at the rear of the park. Inside the factory, Jill meets up with Carlos, who tells her that the US government is planning to launch a nuclear missile into Raccoon City to eradicate the T-Virus infestation.

After confronting Nemesis and grabbing a key card needed to escape, Jill learns from the factory’s control tower that the missile attack on Raccoon City has begun, with only a short time left before the city is destroyed.

Old timer’s job isn’t finish: Metal gear solid 1

See the source image

The year is 2005, six years after the downfall of Zanzibar land. A renegade genetically-enhanced special forces unit, FOXHOUND, has seized a remote island in¬†Alaska’s Fox Archipelago¬†¬†code named “Shadow Moses”, the site of a nuclear weapons disposal facility.

FOXHOUND threatens to use the nuclear-capable mecha, Metal Gear REX, against the U.S. government if they do not receive the remains of Big Boss and the ransom of $1 billion within 24 hours. Solid Snake is forced out of retirement by Colonel Roy Campbell to infiltrate the island and neutralize the threat.

Snake enters the facility via an air vent and locates the first hostage, DARPA Chief¬†Donald Anderson Anderson reveals that Metal Gear REX can be deactivated with a secret detonation override code, but dies of a heart attack. Colonel Campbell’s niece¬†Meryl Silverburgh, held hostage in an adjoining cell,¬†helps Snake escape.

Snake locates another hostage, ArmsTech president¬†Kenneth Baker,¬†but is confronted by FOXHOUND member¬†Revolver Ocelot. Their gunfight is interrupted by a mysterious cyborg ninja who cuts off Ocelot’s right hand. Baker briefs Snake on the Metal Gear project and advises him to contact Meryl, whom he gave a PAL card that might prevent the launch, but he too dies of a sudden heart attack.

Over Codec, Meryl agrees to meet in the warhead disposal area on the condition that Snake contacts Metal Gear’s designer, Dr. Hal “Otacon” Emmerich. En route, Snake receives an anonymous codec call warning him of a tank ambush.

 Snake fends off the attack from Vulcan Raven and proceeds to the rendezvous, where he locates Otacon. The ninja reappears and Snake realizes it is his former ally Gray Fox, believed dead. Otacon agrees to aid Snake remotely using special camouflage to procure information and supplies.

Snake meets Meryl and receives the PAL card. As they head for the underground base, Meryl is possessed by psychic Psycho Mantis and pulls her gun on Snake. He disarms her and defeats Mantis, who informs Snake that he has “a large place” in her heart.

After they reach the underground passageway,Sniper Wolf ambushes them, wounds Meryl, and captures Snake. Liquid confirms Snake’s suspicion that they are twin brothers.

After being tortured by Ocelot,¬†Snake is confused to discover Anderson’s body in his cell, seemingly dead for days. He escapes, makes his way up the communications tower, and fends off a helicopter attack from Liquid. As he emerges onto a snowfield, he is confronted again by Sniper Wolf. He kills her, devastating Otacon, who was infatuated with her.

Find a side to stick with: Deus ex: human revolution

See the source image

On the eve of unveiling a new type of augmentation that will end dependence on Neuropozyne, Sarif Industries is attacked by a group of heavily augmented terrorists known as the Tyrants, who slaughter the staff. Megan Reed and a number of other scientists are presumed dead in the attack.

Adam Jensen is grievously wounded in the attack. David Sarif saves Jensen’s life by giving him advanced augmentations that turn him in a half-machine super-soldier. Curiously, Jensen’s body does not attempt to reject the implants, and therefore he does not need to take Neuropozyne.

Months later, Adam is summoned to deal with another terrorist attack on Sarif Industries, this time by a group of anti-augmentation radicals. Curiously, one of the terrorists is augmented, and Jensen finds him trying to steal weapon blueprints from a computer.

The augmented terrorist shoots himself in the head before Jensen can capture him. Frank Pritchard later discovers that the augmented terrorist was being controlled remotely by some unknown hacker. Pritchard tracks the hacking signal to an abandoned factory in Highland Park.

Adam discovers the Tyrants guarding a FEMA detention camp, but they are moving out after the failure of the Sarif raid. Adam confronts and defeats one of the mercenaries, Barrett, who tells him to go to the newly built Hengsha megacity in China before killing himself with a grenade.

Together with pilot Faridah Malik, Adam travels to Hengsha and tracks down the hacker, Arie van Bruggen, who is being both hunted by private security company Bell tower Associates and hidden by local triad leader Tong Si Hung.

See the source image

Van Bruggen directs Adam to find evidence inside Tai Yong Medical, the world’s largest augmentation technology manufacturer and Sarif’s main rival. Infiltrating Tai Yong, Adam finds footage of a call between Namir and Zhao Yun Ru, which confirms that Megan and the other missing scientists are alive and that Eliza Cassan is somehow involved.

Confronting Zhao in her penthouse apartment, he learns that she is allied to a powerful organization that controls global interests before she triggers security and forces him to leave.

Traveling to the Picus corporate building in Montreal, Jensen tracks down Eliza, revealed to be an artificial intelligence  construct designed to influence the media. Despite her programming, she has begun to question her role and offers to help Adam. After he defeats Tyrant member Fedorova, Eliza gives him footage directing him to Doctor Isaias Sandoval, aide to William Taggart.

Ignore duty to save a father: Gears of war

See the source image

The game’s plot begins fourteen years after Emergence Day, when the Locust Horde overran and killed many COG soldiers and civilians, declaring war against humanity.¬†Marcus Fenix, a former COG soldier, is reinstated into the military after spending four years in prison for abandoning his military post in order to make a vain attempt to save his father, Adam Fenix.

Dominic “Dom” Santiago, Marcus’ best friend and fellow COG, successfully extracts Fenix from the prison, and takes him to meet Delta Squad.¬†The group seeks to obtain the “resonator”, a device that will map “The Hollow”, the underground caverns which the Locust inhabit¬†and later deploy the “Lightmass Bomb”, which will destroy the heart of the Locust forces inside the Hollow.

Fenix and his allies recover the device, but suffer multiple casualties in the process including Anthony Carmine and Squad leader Kim. Fleeing RAAM’s forces, Fenix leads the remaining soldiers through the ruins of Ephyra to claim a “Junker” APC, drive to a mining facility, and finally into the planet’s depths.

Delta Squad successfully detonates the resonator, but the device fails to map enough of the tunnel network. Fortunately, they discover a larger map of the network that originates from Fenix’s old home, specifically his father’s laboratory.

 The group ventures to the Fenix estate at East Barricade Academy, where Fenix originally attempted to rescue his father. When they arrive, Delta encounters heavy Locust resistance.

After collecting the data, the group fights their way past Locust forces and boards a train carrying the Lightmass Bomb. Fenix and Santiago battle their way through the train, and finally are able to defeat Genera RAAM, before uploading the data. Fully activated, the Lightmass Bomb launches into the Hollow, and eradicates the Locust tunnel networks.
