Part 6Sorry, sorry, sorry. Actually, I probably shouldn't be apologizing for not showing more of this game.
Tis the season to give before you receive.
I guess the mural might be to confuse cops into staying away? I try to read Sorry, Charlies Tuna Shack as a strip joint name and my brain just kind of gives up. I dont know why theres an implied solly-cholly joke in there.
Lets have a pointless chat with the whores outside the club because THATS WHAT WE DO, MAN.
I have a feeling her stage name may be Serpentia.
Baby, I used to be the star of this show.
Then why are you out here?
Moneys better. You the Man?
A cop? No. Just one pissed off asshole.
Yeah, you looked stressed out, baby.
Thats hookerspeak for you look like a mysoginist psychopath.
The Man dont hassle me and the girls.
Disappearin lately, is what I hear.
Why do you say that?
Some of the regulars dont show up on the streets no more thats all I know.
Baby, Im to rich for you blood.
I dont pay for it, bitch.
Then why you out here flirtin with me?
Searchin for information. Thats all.
Easy on the back pedal, Joey.
Perfect, another chance.
Oh God. I think this ones a man, but Blackstar doesnt realize it. She also comes with the exact same conversation options as Snake Eyes.
Its great. Lots of horny guys coming out. What more could a whore ask for?
Uh, not much.
Only one cop bothers me. Names Cam something. A real asshole.
I know him. Difference of opinion.
I prefer Call Girl.
Show some respect asshole.
Good luck with that, you whoreslut.
$50 for straight sex. No games. $20 for oral pleasure. Use a rubber.
Finally the connoisseur shines through.
Competition is stiff so are the customers.
He looks pretty goddamn happy about it.
Wheres a crowbar when we need one?
I dont know if this guy even works here, but Blackstar is intimidated, so well have to bargain our way past him.
Maybell hell like some stale joints.
Pretty belligerent for a pothead. Lets go inside.
This is Blackstars thought about this room. Hes not specifically talking about Prey. Though Prey might very well be a woman underneath all that hair.
Slow night. Just the regulars. Havent seen you before.
Never been here.
Welcome to Charlies. Can I get you anything?
What about them?
They bother you?
Nah, we dont get hassle. This is a respectable place.
Nothing like a good striptease.
Whatever turns you on.
Creep. Probably likes to look at naked women.
Work here long enough, it wont turn you on anymore.
I aint here to watch.
Yeah, thats what they all say.
Have you checked it out?
Three women. On stage. Total nudity.
Should I be impressed?
Yknow, you seem to have an attitude.
Yes. An attitude of aggressively disliking women.
Its Prey! Who we came to see. Which means another conversation to transcribe. Argh.
Blackstar! You made it.
Did you ever doubt it?
Nah. You can get into any joint. Even a classy place like this.
Check out the babes in the back room.
I use em, then abuse em. I steal em, then deal em. You name it.
Just fyi, Preys talking about computers here, not women.
As I said on the phone, I have a laptop computer for sale.
And you said $100, right?
For you, Prey. $1000 to anyone else.
This is in 1995 dollars, remember.
Thanks, dude. You scratch mine, Ill scratch yours.
Ive got some Cruex for that. But seriously, we got a deal?
Most definitely. Jus let me check it out.
I still hang there, but this place is cool yknow with all the babes.
Ill have to look around and check out the scenery.
The Bearded Clams are smiling in the back room.
Break out the dollar bills
OK, guess well force Blackstar to look at some naked women before we settle up with Prey.
This den of jackals shall know My righteous fury, yae as Babylon these whores will behold tides of blood and the quaking of thunder
...Alright, lets check out some of the punters.
(guy on the left) Unwinding after a tough day at the office.
Hes busy watching the dancers and playing with something in his pocket.
(any of the girls on stage) One of the dancers.
Dont be rude. She hasnt given permission to touch. Besides, shes just a dancing whore.
(bald guy next to the middle stage) He needs to be close to the action.
Stay away from him. He has some wild look in his eyes.
Nothing else to do here for now. Lets get back to the bar.
Lets sell this hot merchandise.
This the laptop?
Yes. You got the cash?
Here you go. Looks like a nice piece of equipment. This the one you stole from that shop?
I gonna have to sew them lips together, Prey?
Shit, sorry I freaked for a second. Ill be cool.
Watch it, Pal. Our business is between me and you not this whole joint.
Itll never happen again.
See that it doesnt. Before I forget, let me take the disk out of that thing first.
No problem. Here it is.
I need to have the encrypted message on this disk read somehow.
You say somethin?
Talkin to myself, Prey. Thanks, I gotta cruise. Ill be in touch.
OK, we at least have an objective now get that disk decrypted.
The smell of silicone was gettin to me.
Lets get out of here before Blackstar gets a semi.
