I wanted to like this game.
Tag: I Miss the Sunrise
Let’s class this up with some retrospective posts. Like The Reconstruction, I Miss the Sunrise had a mammoth cast, so let’s try to make sense of their purpose in the narrative.
Last time, I destroyed the universe! Let’s go back in time so I can condemn it to a slow agonizing death instead. Trigger warning for suicide, by the way.
Also this is crazy long but I am so far past caring. Just think of it as a special double feature episode because I love you so much.
Let’s end this. I’m given one last chance to organize my fleets, and then it’s showtime.
God is often said to have “a plan for everything”. Sounds intimidating, but its relevance to this episode’s plot is pretty shakey. “Forever and Ever” would have been a much more fitting title here.
It’s the last bonus post! Featuring the game’s only female superboss and Return of the Abandoned Databanks: Containing Actual Information This Time.
The bonus content in this episode is pretty substantial. Everyone gets a detailed cutscene to conclude their personal chats. In this half, we learn the important lesson that science will always fail us so we should roll over and die, and also that creating a slave species is only bad because it’s playing God.
Well, here we go. The war plot just got wrapped up in the shoddiest and quickest way possible, so the stage is now finally clear to resolve this Lazarus thing.
Last time, the villain contacted Ros and revealed her crew is wasting their time trying to look for him. Instead of alerting her friends and the authorities, she chose to keep this a secret because she’s terrible. Today, the game forgets about that and remembers there’s supposed to be a war going on.
Last time, there’s an actual antagonist! Today, we’ll be meeting him.
When I return to the Inquiry, a curt announcement orders me to attend a briefing. Sorenson’s taken notice, it seems. (more…)
Aside from the obvious associations, “forever and ever” is a Biblical phrase, usually referring to God and the salvation he offers. I think this title would have been far more fitting for episode 5. You’ll see why when we get there.
In which Luke becomes very slightly less terrible and everyone else treads water.
