TERRA NOVA EPISODE 24TERRA NOVAEPISODE 24COUNTER INSURGENCYKara walks down the hallway on the 42nd floor, stopping to take note of the map near the center of the spire. Her orders from Zata were to investigate the spacecraft herself and make a report of it. "I don't know why they're making me do this… Jgirl, Jeffron, Justa, and Darkkick already made a check up on it…"Chris simply scratches his ear with his hind leg, keeping to animal form in order not to be detected as anything more than a pet.Kara sighs and tugs on the leash as she resumes walking, "may as well get this over with…" She pulls out a pad and pen once she is actually inside the room and facing the ship, and then proceeds onto making sketches and writing down descriptions.While she is busy the wolf unhooks himself from the leash with a nail, preferring to walk away. The people in the corridor pay him no heed as he trots from door to door, reading the markings above each one, eventually stopping at a room labeled evidence. A single swipe
TERRA NOVA EPISODE 23TERRA NOVAEPISODE 23MOMENT OF SILENCEPapers shuffle on the oak desk at the top of City 13's spire, the president of the human race using the little amount of strength left in his ancient arms to sign orders. The power for the machines that are aiding his movements turned low enough that a rim of sweat lines his brow."You do realize that you will cause yourself a heart attack…"A chill draft of air flows from the air vent as the ancient being puts the final pieces of paper away in their places, "May as well get this over with…""Good to know my victim is so compliant." The voice comes from the darkness at the dark end of the room."I am too old to continue the struggle… but know that even in death I will never agree to your ideals…""Good final words…" The darkness erupts in an explosion of light as the president's head explodes in a shower of mealy gray material and red fluid. A single handgun, a Glock 98, drops to the floor beside the remains.*******Kara flies into the door on t
Warhammer 40k DoW Review(Warning: Actual gameplay "may" contain gore)Bodies of fallen comrades fly through the air as orbital bombardments blast the ground around you. Your eyes widening in fear when an Ork squiggoth plows through your ranks that you have, shattering the sanity you struggled to keep together. All that is left is to remember that it is just a game.Welcome to Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of WarFrom the very get go the game seems to be the same as just any other as you do the typical RTS things, build bases, collect resources (Power and Requisition), and build up your forces. If you're feeling unique then you can actually paint your units to be unique to you. That's all well and good, but we all know that combat is the very heart of strategy games.This is where the game takes a drastic turn, combat moves from ranged to melee as armies clash together, the battle turning constantly in a flurry of visceral finishing moves. Juggernaughts crush creatures and throw them away like ragdolls with their gig
Azu Manga Daioh ReviewAzu Manga Daioh is a hilarious manga created with the intent of only being funny. No storyline, no purpose, just non-stop acts of stupidity and insanity. The students in the high school all have different personalities, ranging from the air-headed Osaka to the ten year old super-genius Chiyo-chan. Unfortunately I cannot give anything more in depth, or else I'll risk spoiling the book for you all, so 'Fuhgeddaboutit'.Basically, if you like comedy then give this series a try.
TERRA NOVA EPISODE 22 SPECIAL!TERRA NOVAEPISODE 22EVOLUTIONRyoko flops down on her bed face up, her mind a blur of activity, "Kara… Cidii… Vaidai… It doesn't make any sense." She rolls over to her left and looks at the letter from the human leader on the nightstand. Without saying a word she opens the envelope with a fingernail, the paper unravels as her eyes move across reading the words. She stops on the final line, "I have a gift for you, I know that it is no consolation for Chris's unexplained absence as of a week ago, it will arrive at 10:00 am on Sunday the 25th…" Her hand folds the letter back up and puts it on the front of her refrigerator with a magnet.*******The knock Ryoko had been expecting comes at exactly 10:00, but when she opens the door she finds nothing.Or perhaps the better term would be nobody, a single large package lies on the ground, but as soon as her newly furred hand reaches it the thing jumps. The string undoes itself and a gray wolf with a collar looks up at her. "Aww…" She picks t
Technology and Techniques---Materials---Cathralan Silver: A substance created by the Cathralan people, known for its ability to be extremely flexible and light when used in armor, and extremely strong and sharp when used for weapons. It is surmised it has a connection with the planar source.Zardic Ore: A material found on the surface of the planet (and in the gardens of the Phoenix), Zardic Ore 'grows' on small patches of ground. Naturally soft and bendable (in comparison to metals) when it is induced to shock it absorbs all impact making a prime component in handguns and other ranged weapons. The ability for it to bend also makes it a prime component in bows.Planar Source: Planar Source is used to describe objects that utilize a unique energy signature that is naturally found on all planes; the objects therefore are natural to every dimension and yet are completely alien. The source of the signature is unknown, but whatever the thing may be, it must truly be something of great power.---Processes---Transm

The cross-shaped front reflects light from the sun while the fusion trails of the engines come from the center of the back. The glow of energy does not reach far beyond the edge of the thrusters, but the power being emitted can be felt to the ends of the curved wings.Captain Forsna looks over the remains with red irises, her long blonde hair touching the floor of the bridge. "Lire, get me the head of fighter and transport divisions.""Yes, ma'am" says a man with a circlet wrapped around his head, covering his eyes.A rhino is displayed on the holo-panel to the captain's right, words below the face denoting him as Eza. "You are to take a squadron out into the nebula and search for survivors, capture all that you find."The horned head performs the salute then winks off of the panel."What do you think happened here?"A few minutes pass before Lire speaks, "It
Diamonds in the Rough V.2If any of you have played the original Homeworld you know that it was one of the best space Real Time Strategy games because it actually allowed you do move in every direction and displayed beautiful graphics for the time.--This game presents exactly the same way, you get a full sphere in space to move in, harvest resources, and wage war. The graphics are beautiful, cinematic quality at times, and will hardly slow down on current day computers.You still control the Hiigaran mothership and fleet, and have to make tactical decisions to utilize each space-crafts strength and avoid their weaknesses. The difficulty is practically the same as Homeworld's, you carry on resources and vessels from previous missions, which can be tough at times, seeing as a mistake in one mission will leave you like a fish on dry land for the next one.--Pros: Full-fledged space combat. No true structures, everything can move. Can have massive multiplayer battles with six players.Cons: Single player can be
