Part 52: Episode 52: Third Party Bullshit

(Alternate title: "I just shot Marburg in the face!")


With that, we're done with Marburg, done with Rome, and done with being a snarky jerk. Okay, maybe not that last one, but we can certainly branch out now into other attitudes. And just in time, too, because we've got people to meet in Moscow and Taipei! Specifically, Grigori, Hong Shi, and Steven Heck.

With Grigori I'm planning to show off getting on his unhappy side. It was gone over somewhat by Yahtzee in his Zero Punctuation review of the game, but there are a few more consequences that are worth demonstrating. Besides, it's just so darn satisfying.

Hong Shi, I leave up to you all. Do we want him to like us? Do we want to piss him off? Or should we stick to one conversation stance to see what happens?

Steven Heck... I'm not too sure about. We've seen the consequences of him liking us, but that was a factor of doing Taipei first; we've also already seen Mike's Professional attitude toward him and the responses we get. So do we make him dislike us? Or should I show off Mike reveling in Heck's sadism?
