I did include the copious written materials in my assumptions when writing that. There's a lot of useful background, and I did read it. I bought it, paid for it, read it. It was good.

The exposition and backgrounding continue. The first few levels are about introduction, training, getting your feet wet with the easy stuff, whippersnappers.

And how many guys did you cap at the beginning of Payne, during the flashback? ;)

not to mention that you barely know whats going on when you start getting thwacked while reading the terminal. Pure genius of dropping you right into the deep end without a clue whats going on.

If you knew anything, you'd know that aliens originally stopped moving when players were reading terms in M1 :D

did they? well, coming late to the pack, as I did (i got the trilogy box early last year, and have only played M1 through the wonderful M1A1 port for Aleph One), they do move. and they do hit you... or at least, they did for me.....  :unsure:

and so most people coming to play it these days will have them coming after you when you read the terminals... especially blake buck. the Pfhor dont like blake.
