Part 31: Beast Within 10: Warhammer 40k JokePart 10: Warhammer 40k Joke
Christ I keep falling behind. Sorry folks. Well, back to Not-Tim Curry!
Grace, you ever feel not so fresh?
Ok, seriously, this is a horror game right?
All right, well that cut away was kinda horrifying.
Not so much.
Oh Christ, they went with a weird ass dream sequence. Well, back to basics. Lets check the news.
So Gabriel interprets that there was another wolf killing in downtown Munich. How fucking big was Munich in 1996 anyway? Well thats a little harder to find out, but these days its apparently populated by over a million people with an average of 4280 people per square kilometer. Yikes. Especially because this one was found at Marienplatz right near the city hall. Ballsy fucker. Well, Ive got no better ideas. To Marienplatz!
So first lets go see Ubergrau or, actually, he tells Gabriel that he can just call him Harry. He has Graces package, so well have Gabe look at that in a bit. I mean that because Gabriels an idiot and wont open his mail now. We cant ask Harry anything else, so lets go crime scene hunting.
OH GEE ITS RIGHT OUTSIDE THE CREEPY HUNTING CLUB I WONDER IF THERE IS A CONNECTION? I mean, really?? Aside from the lackluster acting, the big problem Im having in this game is the complete and utter lack of subtlety.
At any rate, we get our first look at Kommisar Leber. Just dont turn around, Gabe. We try using Gabriels business card to get his attention, but he looks at Gabriel and then goes back to investigating. Asshole. So what else could I use hmm hey, the evidence report that proves its not the wolves from the zoo!
Not really. He shouts at Gabriel for a minute, saying that he does not have time for Gabriels nonsense, and leaves. Hmmm I have an idea! Hes being an asshole and the press is here, I wonder
Oh this is fucking priceless.
Gabriel goes on record, very loudly about how the hair found at the Huber farm is reddish brown, and the escaped wolves are grey. And also how the paw prints do not match CANIS LUPIS LUPIS!! At which point Der Kommissar tackles Gabriel out of frame.
He finally, and very angrily, agrees to meet Gabriel at his office later.
Once at his office, Leber proceeds TO CONSTANTLY SHOUT AT GABRIEL for the most part. Dude is a very angry man, and at his size should probably watch his blood pressure. Anywho, Gabriel makes a deal for information, he tells Leber what he knows, and all Leber has to tell him is standard press release stuff.
Leber grudgingly agrees. So first things first: right away, Gabriel points out that theres something very wrong with the pattern now forming. All the other murders were at least a 40 minute drive from Munich proper, and now heres one smack dab in the middle of downtown. Also, Gabriel reflects that wolves wont kill near their lair unless they have to. Maybe hes not quite as dumb as this game is reflecting.
In addition, he correctly guesses that the autopsies show that the killer is not a wolf but is definitely canine of some sort, possibly a hybrid.
Cut that out! Leber is also convinced from the autopsies that there is only one animal based on the tooth impressions and saliva samples. And he is personally convinced that the zoo wolves are not responsible, but the police dont want that to get out yet for fear of instigating further panic or something.
Well, all that shouting took a lot out of me, NEXT TIME: The quest to open Graces package! (Oh get your minds out of the gutter you pervs.)
