Reverse Course: Beneath A Steel Sky (Part 10 - Servering LINC)

Beneath A Steel Sky reaches its conclusion, and I fire off some parting shots.

All that's missing is a sunset to ride into.

Foster succeeded in opening a doorway by poisoning a massive, horrific living organism, and proceeded to attempt the second most stupid thing he could ever do to reach it. After risking a dip in what appeared to be stomach acid to swing through the door, our hero seems to have reached his goal.

Reverse Course: Beneath A Steel Sky (Part 9 - Deeper Underground)

Beneath A Steel Sky: Foster buys himself a ticket to more questions than answers as he draws closer to LINC.

So... it's coffee?

After Foster’s unsuccessful attempt to spare Hobbins the terrible fate of two hours of community service, I return my attention to finding that disused subway, and in turn — here’s hoping — LINC. I pop back into St. James and direct Foster to ask Colston about a possible subway.

Reverse Course: Beneath A Steel Sky (Part 8 - Blind Justice)

Beneath A Steel Sky: Robert Foster proves he’s no Phoenix Wright.

Robert Foster: Arse Attorney.

I’d succeeded in giving a flea-ridden dog a well-overdue bath as a means of distraction, allowing Foster to sneak into a guarded cathedral undetected, only to be confronted by a small army of Mister Cools. Fortunately they only prove to be inanimate dummies.

Reverse Course: Beneath A Steel Sky (Part 7 - Going Up In This World Means Going Down)

Beneath A Steel Sky: Foster wants answers, not analgesic.

Up yours and all, buddy.

Remember when I said that I found it strange that Foster didn’t call Joey over to the elevator before descending to ground level, despite him being on the same screen at the time? Well, there is a reason for that and that reason is possibly one of the dumbest inconvenient plot devices I’ve seen in an adventure game to date:

Reverse Course: Beneath A Steel Sky (Part 6 - Ports of Call)

Beneath A Steel Sky: Getting into cyberspace proves to be a ballache.

BASS - Part 6 - screen13

Foster has gained access to Dr. Burke’s surgery in the hopes of getting a Schriebmann port installed into his head. He strolls in to find Burke, a man of a stereotypical mad scientist appearance, rummaging around a patient who appears to be awake the whole time.

Reverse Course: Beneath A Steel Sky (Part 5 - Once More, With Joey!)

Beneath A Steel Sky: This time, I remember to bring Joey with me.

Returning to the factory level, I spot Joey moping around and being useless,so I give him something to do: analyse the cable. The robot reveals that it should hold Foster’s weight. All fine and well, but I would need a reason to use it in such a manner to begin with. I idly check out the LINC terminal and discover a new, erm, news story.

Reverse Course: Beneath A Steel Sky (Part 4 - Belle Ends)

Beneath A Steel Sky: Boob jobs, home invasions and insurance.

"Going up in this world means going down."

Successfully restoring power to the elevator has allowed me to take Foster to the next level, in a literal sense of the term. He steps out into the walkway of an area that appears far more cleaner and far less industrial than the last. Seems to be more of a residential or business district. And what is this I see to the right of the screen?

mensrightsactivism:

A Voice for Men, a men’s rights site that is most notable for being featured as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is currently hosting a conference on men’s issues in Detroit.

The images above are direct quotes of what some of the speakers at this men’s rights conference have said.

Sit back and marvel at the newest human rights movement.

Thanks to both David Futrelle at We Hunted The Mammoth for the excellent article that inspired this post and whey_ over at the againstmensrights subreddit for making the above images.

Please share this post far and wide so everyone knows exactly what men’s rights activists believe!

Ew.

Six speakers, six pieces of dogshit and the sick thrown up by anyone who has the displeasure of reading these quotes. If that doesn’t constitute a great evil, I don’t know what does.
