Image Rise

Sunday, May 13, 2012

The main character is Karl Fairburne, an OSS officer who is inserted into Berlin in 1945, during the final days of World War II. It references Operation Paperclip and its predecessor Operation Overcast, the plan by the USA to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany. Fairburne comes up against both Nazi and Soviet opponents as he seeks to kill or capture key scientists involved in the V-2 rocket program.

The campaign begins with a tutorial mission were the player must assassinate German Major-General Hans von Eisenberg who is attempting to defect to the Soviets. The next mission is a slightly altered version of the demo, where the player is sent to kill Dr. Gunther Kreidl, a Nazi scientist and search escape with his documents. Next, Fairburne infiltrates a V2 rocket production facility in search of another scientist, Dr. Schwaiger, who is willing to defect to the United States, but Fairburne is discovered and must fight his way out of the facility. Fairburne decides to steal a cache of explosives and destroy a bridge to distract the Soviets and Germans while he slips behind them and rescues Schwaiger.

 The plan works and Fairburne heads off to a place called Opernplatz, where he finds Schwaiger and is forced to hold off waves of Soviet troops who have discovered their position. Schwaiger is shot in the process, and before he dies, he says "tabun". Fairburne, clueless, goes to find Dr. Müller, whom he assassinates from his command tower. With no location of V2 launching site, he goes to a Soviet HQ, where he finds that tabun is a nerve gas inside the V2 rockets that are about to launch on London. With only information that location is somewhere outside Berlin, Fairburne goes to Berlin's office of Dr. Wolff's, the mastermind behind the project, to find clues. The office has been already destroyed, but Fairburne finds a ripped notebook and he finds that Wolff is about to escape from an airfield. Fairburne arrives at the ministry building with a map that is thrown in a fireplace, he barely puts out the fire and the location of the V2 rockets are found. He sets out to destroy them, which he successfully does.

With only Wolff left, Fairburne goes back to the Brandenburg Gate, where he had assassinated von Eisenberg few days earlier. Fairburne climbs on top of the Gate and, as Wolff is about to escape in a car, he shoots, making the car run off the road and crash, killing Wolff instantly. Fairburne remarks that WWII is over but the Cold War begins, of which he was the first American soldier.

System Requirements: Street Fighter X Tekken

The center of the conflict between the Street Fighter and Tekken universes is a cubical object that crash-lands in Antartica. The object is of a mysterious origin and researchers worldwide are unable to determine what purpose it serves. The only thing that can be understood is that when beings come into conflict around this object, it releases a water-like energy that brings more power to the combatants. Due to the object's tendency to react to conflict between beings, they name it "Pandora".Whilst a standard story is given to most combinations of fighters, specific teams, such as Ryu & Ken or Kazuya & Nina, receive their own unique story elements and rival battles.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City System Requirements

Umbrella Security Service (USS) Delta team enters the Raccoon City Underground Laboratory, where they meet up with Alpha team leader HUNK. Their mission is to assist Alpha team in stopping Dr. Birkin from handing over his T-Virus research to the U.S. military and retrieve the G-virus. On their way to Birkin's lab, they find Birkin has paid numerous Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (UBCS) mercenaries to work for him while the deal goes forward. When they reach Birkin's lab, the doctor is shot, and HUNK and another Alpha leave with the samples. They soon find that Birkin survived the attack and infected himself with the virus. The Birkin creature proceeds to kill off most of Alpha team before disappearing; HUNK offers to go back in search of the sample.

Not long after the battle, it becomes evident that the T-virus has leaked city-wide, and people are beginning to transform into flesh-hungry zombies. In what they see as a punishment by USS command, Delta team is ordered to remove evidence of Umbrella's role in the outbreak. Heading into Raccoon City Hall, Delta team meets with a UBCS mercenary and they monitor Nicholai Ginovaef; he is soon revealed as a traitor and attempts to kill Delta team. Later, the team is sent out around Raccoon Park to find the Nemesis-T Type, which has gone rogue. A second parasite is injected into its body in order to bring it back under control. Shortly after this mission is completed, the team is then sent out to the Raccoon City Police Department, ordered to kill any surviving police officers and destroy evidence linking the company to the outbreak.

When this is done, the team exits the station, and soon after encounter Leon S. Kennedy, whom they begin to hunt down along with Sherry Birkin. After they find and corner Leon, Claire Redfield and Sherry, the game can end in two ways: in one ending, the team resigns from Umbrella over their abandonment during the mission and betrays them by letting the three live; in the other, Leon and Claire are executed and Sherry is sent to an Umbrella facility.
