And when I get bored I usually do daft stuff like thisâ€¦.
UFO Enemy Unknown starring DC members!!!!!
Now I tried this idea before but video only really doesnâ€™t work so this time itâ€™s a screen shot attempt which is easier to get through.
For those who havenâ€™t played this game, just go on Steam and download a copy for $3 or somethingâ€¦.
Jan 1st 1999:
Alien craft spotted over Earth, abducting people yadda yadda, nefarious schemes, what do they want etc. Supreme Commander Boomer and his squad of DC coaches and members to the rescueâ€¦maybe.
We plonked our first base in Europe (German Border) becasue:
1) I live near there
2) Although the Americans are the biggest contributors theyâ€™re only 1 country as opposed to the many of europeâ€¦DEAL WITH IT! Iâ€™ll stick a base there assuming we survive that long.
Of course any army needs weapons and the Rifles and Pistols we got from Busto Army Surplusâ„¢ arenâ€™t really going to cut it, soâ€¦.
We found our first UFO pretty quickly but our Interceptor pilots were a bit careless and all we ended up getting from it was the knowledge that nuclear tipped warheads were fine for blowing up Alien ships that were all of 10 feet in diameterâ€¦great going chaps.
But then good news!!
Umm yesâ€¦do that
However as seems to be the case these days, every time thereâ€™s a good message itâ€™s time for someone to piss on my bonfire.
Great, on the deck and entreched.
Oh well here we go.
No Iâ€™m not bloody ready but weâ€™re going to do it anyway. Iâ€™ve tried to filter out the worst of my starting soliders but nothing is perfectâ€¦hopefully theyâ€™ll be ok.
MISSION 1 â€“ Small UFO â€“ Landed and Intact
Attending X-Com Personnel
BigBadBabar (In remote command of Tank due to excellent pre-game testingâ€¦or maybe itâ€™s the fact that if I get him killed Iâ€™m never going to here the end of it)
_BBB: Well we managed to land right next to it so good start guys
PygmyHero: Yeah fine for you with your titanium armoured Death Mobile and remote control back at HQ, what about us in what appear to be hand-me-down flak-jackets???
BBB: Ooooh Iâ€™m a Rocket Tank and Iâ€™m OK, I roll all night and I pwn all day
PygmyHero: Boomer are you sure this is a good idea?
Boomer: Noâ€¦get going._
_BBB: Found one.
Boomer: Guys I want you to take down as many as you can to gain combat experience, the tank canâ€™t ever improve and can draw fire due to itâ€™s thick armour soâ€¦
BBB: Umm did you say draw fire??
BBB: Awwww look at it. Ok guys Iâ€™m gonna drive by this knee-high wall that appears to block vision, can one of you guys come down and snipe my kill?
Danza: Iâ€™m all over this oneâ€¦
BBB: Uh, the Rifle shot bounced off it that canâ€™t be too good.
Ms Bungle: DANZA NOOOOO! Iâ€™ll get that little freak I swear Iâ€¦.
BBB: Oh my god!!
Boomer: stunned silence
BBB: ITâ€™S GONE BALLISTIC!!
Boomer: Fortunately it also has been folied by the knee-high wall. WILL SOMEBODY KILL THAT THING?!
Sushi: Iâ€™m on it
Pygmyhero: Holy Shit Sushi, your Rocket lauchers fires flaming death skulls!!
Sushi: Uhâ€¦dibs on â€œIâ€™m not getting the bill for damage causedâ€
BBB: Got another round here and no more Mr. Nice guyâ€¦theyâ€™re all going down!!
BBB: Thatâ€™s more like itâ€¦Iâ€™m gonna go off exploring.
Entity: Hey mike and DD. About that 44 hand we were discussing last night what do you think about the 3-bet pre from the BBâ€¦.
Boomer: Uh ohâ€¦everyone off the Skyranger and into the fight, prepare to breach the UFO.
BG: Iâ€™m in position
PygmyHero: I will support you from over hereâ€¦
BG: O RLY?!!
Lysistrata: Ew 2 bodies :( Donâ€™t need me to tell you what they died from I guess.
Boomer: Oh Iâ€™m sure weâ€™ll find some way of getting them back on board
Lysistrata: but theyâ€™reâ€¦
Boomer: Thereâ€™s ALWAYS a way
Lysistrata: Youâ€™re getting a pysch evaluation the moment I get back.
BG: Iâ€™m close to the door
Boomer: Good, I think weâ€™ve got the exit covered.
Joe: pant stupidâ€¦heavyâ€¦cannon.
Pygmy: Iâ€™m here.
Mikel: Iâ€™m just not sure itâ€™s a profitable 3-bet although maybe vsâ€¦..
Boomer: Why me? Hey BBB you seeing anything out there?
BBB: uh kindaâ€¦
BBB: Oh you ainâ€™t waling away in shame this timeâ€¦that almost scratched my paintwork!! Say hello to my Little friend!!
Warning: Extreme Flash Photography hereâ€¦look away if you have epilepsy
BBB: I think itâ€™s dead
Boomer: You really think so?? How am I going to explain THAT to the local farmer??? Sorry Mr Giles but we decided that we were going to test a new ploughing technology and it went a bit wrong?
BBB: Itâ€™s not THAT bad
BG: Going in guys
BG: I has a pear!!
Boomer: Thatâ€™s not a good thing BG. Get Outta there.
BG: Wait if I cap the one Iâ€™m next to I can get behind the engine ftw!
BBB: Did he just miss from 6 inâ€¦
BBB: And the alien across the room 1-shottedâ€¦.
BBB: OK Iâ€™m gonna finish thisâ€¦
Boomer: Wait, thereâ€™s too much valuable stuff in there to be torching it. Joe if you can make it in weâ€™ll have Pygmy and Lysistrata cover you
JT: Got itâ€¦btw whereâ€™s DD?
DD: i think it can work though and hereâ€™s whyâ€¦.
JT: Oh forget it!
JT: Iâ€™m going in
JT: The aliens appear to have adapted the incredible tactic of standing with their backs to the only entrance to the craft
Boomer: Do what you can Joe
JT: Remind me next time not to use a Heavy Cannon less that a foot away from my enemyâ€¦Iâ€™ll never get this out now.
Boomer: Lysistrata, the wayâ€™s clear go and save Joe
Lysistrata: On it!
Lysistrata: Uh oh
Boomer: Joeâ€¦ok weâ€™re defintely going to have to find a way of getting him backâ€¦
Boomer: ALWAYS a way, besides without him the amount of HORSE content goes downâ€¦canâ€™t have that ever. Pygmyhero can you please deal with that thing.
Pygmyhero: And THATâ€™S how itâ€™s done!!
BBB: ahemâ€¦who has more kills sir??
Pygmyhero: When I get a weapon big enough to dent that tankâ€™s armour itâ€™ll be me
BBB: Hahaâ€¦Big weapon
Lysistrata: Hey guysâ€¦I canâ€™t hear anythingâ€¦I think weâ€™ve won. wait I can hear somethingâ€¦.
Entity: But taken as part of your whole rangeâ€¦
Boomer: Letâ€™s go home people
Boomer: It was a decent raid considering the ship was intact. Loss of life was high but weâ€™re hoping to prevent that in the future and maybe even find a way to help our fallen comrades using alien tech.
Lysistrata: Psych evaluation NOW!
Sushi: SHIP IT!!
_Well that was a lot of fun for me and I may do more in the future, until then back to the SN grind and Premiership football :)
