This mission is cursed.

The only way to prevent its interference from killing us all is to intentionally kill each other before it has the chance.

Clearly running multiple missions at the same time is a terrible idea.  The epic battle to see which team can cock it up worse has escalated again.

And Larry kinda gets blueballed in all this; just left with a raging bone spear and no where to put it.

That's a lot of stuff being thrown at one possessed guy. Are we sure the infection isn't contagious?
I'm more concerned with friendly fire. Not for Flint, he's in a battlesuit and taking careful aim. For everyone else. Hopefully the goop wall between the crossfire will help.

You know, I'd expect a 1-1 on Dex to actually work out worse than that. Such as Vanessa falling on a nearby teammate and accidentally eating a limb or two as reflex kicks in.

Hmmm...You know what. Fuck it.

Lets just remove the z. I know it's not realistic but whatever, it's easier. Lets us keep better track of everything. So starting position is origin, 0,0. Planet is at 300, 150. There. Done.

So, you just wanna move in a straight line towards the planet?

Dangit pw, first you make me plan and write out all that stuff, then you throw it all out of the window when it looks like it'll be too difficult to work with. Can't blame you for it, 3D navigation in a forum game is a right sucker, but still.
Yeah, sorry about that.  I figured that now is the time to change it, as opposed to later.

At least this way, its probably easier to plan.

This is why we fire when the goop is behind him, and aim for the kneecaps.

Dang, why have I never gotten around to watching that movie (apart from the occasional clip/gif)?
I shall have to gather whatever friends I can manage to rustle up and ingest it posthaste.

Same sentiment here. It's a shame I have neglected such an excellent movie so far.
Thank you for bringing us to see the light, Comrade!

We've had those in the past, at least a couple of times!
Alas, due to the lack of conveniently available private jets they were not meatspace events, but they were still good fun.

How can you arrange a movie night with people having like 10 hours of difference because of time zones?

In some cases, 11 or 12.

Yoink is in Australia, and I'm in England, for example.

I'd buy that for a dollar!

A. Do it on weekends. People have higher chance to find time during the day.
B. Some people (like me) have really screwed sleep schedules.

Sounds about right.
Goddamit geography.

Well, we did have ER movie 24-hour periods! Which is pretty decent as far as timezone compatibility is concerned. Too bad Piecewise has been too busy in the last... year or so.

Also, now I know how to picture battlesuits. To think of it, very HMRC-like behavior. :P

(Or maybe it's an assaultsuit/Heavy Robot Body? You know, with smaller 'cockpit' and actually capable of passing through doors.)
