Game 51: Rise of the Dragon - Gone is my sweet!

By Ilmari

Blade Hunter’ secret diary, part 4: I am a bit worried, since I haven’t see Karyn for a while - even down the office there was someone else on her spot. Now someone is finally calling, could it be her?

At the end of the last post I had just managed to piss off the Chinese mafia by bombing their warehouse full of bad drugs, and the henchman, Jonny Qwong, had to pay for not being able to stop me. At the beginning of new morning I went to see Karyn and ask for the analysis of a drug sample I had gave her the last day. She did have a tape ready for me.


Black dot: Hi new guy, do you want to play?


Formerly black dot: What the…?


Formerly black dot: Help, I've mutated! Where’s the police, when you most need them?

I’ve from time to time tried to meet the mayor, but he has always been busy. I also tried it now, and I noticed a new dialogue option: I could now threaten mayor’s secretary and demand seeing him, because I had some info that might ruin his chances in the elections.


Well now that you mentioned it...

A heated discussion with the mayor followed, in which verbal punches were not saved:


Hero - bureaucratic twit, 1 - 0.


Hero - bureaucratic twit, 1 - 1.


Hero - bureaucratic twit, 2 - 1.

Mayor was finally convinced that something major was going on, when I showed him the tape that I’d just received from Karyn. He told to me to get to the bottom of the drug operation with Chinese mafia and with utmost clarity explained that I was not welcome to his office before the case was closed. A bit unsatisfied with the results I left the office. The debate with the mayor didn’t seem to have moved the plot forward, so with nothing else to do, I decided to meet Jake. This meeting was also a bit underwhelming.


Jake, I thought we were friends! I gave you some chocolate even!

Jake said just that we would have to meet somewhere more safe and that he would give me a call. As all the cellphones have somehow disappeared in this dystopian future, that meant I had to go to my apartment and actually wait for the phone call. While there, I noted I had missed something very crucial.


So I’ve been walking around with empty gun all this time?

Well, Jake didn’t call, but something else happened.








Who is this guy? He doesn’t look like Snake at all.

After this plot twist, Deng Hwang called me and told that I shouldn’t interfere with his plans, if I wanted Karyn to stay alive. Plot was going fast forward and I was still confused what to do next. I’ve waited till next day and nothing appears to happen. Jake hasn’t called, mayor hasn’t done anything, no new threats from Chinese Mafia, nothing to do in all the places I’ve found. I am a bit confused what to do next and Ï’ve resorted to mere aimless wandering around the game world. Should I just wait? Or am I missing something crucial?






Well, at least this happened...

    1. I think the series I linked to wasn't a big thing outside continental Europe, so it might be unfamiliar to many, especially if you weren't a kid in eighties. But if someone starts talking about white cells (the police of the human body), this is what I'll picture them to be.

    3. I knew Finns at least would recognise the show! I might do the favour and change the link to an English version, instead of the original French.

  2. Ha! If you didn't leave Jake alone soon enough, he might give you HIS chocolate.
