THE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES!
There, got a shot of the KONAMI BUILDING
"Oh it's you. :<"
Basically Mika is all ;_; (she could use a little love today, love today, love today) and Gillian is all sorry for your loss etc etc.
If I recall she tells you to go see the Chief immediately, so away we go!
And the chief informs me that Gillian will be taking over Jean's duties. So basically it's Gillian versus the world now. AWESOME.
Anyway time to poke and prod everyone
BACK FROM THE GRAVE
So that's what was hanging from your nose.
We enjoy watching you shower, Gillian. :)
Metal I expected a full database of painting lore i am very disappointed
WHO WOULD PAINT AN INANIMATE OBJECT?!? this is going deeper than we suspected
Robo-sofa, are you programmed to love
Especially when they're young Iowa farmgirls looking for a big break in the biz. OH!
MY COUCH IS PROGRAMMED TO CALL 911, SEED.
Feel his rippling pectorals?
Living with Kojima must be interesting.
"Could you turn on the TV?"
"DO YOU KNOW HOW A TV WORKS? :D :D :D See there are these electric pulses that go across the screen and cause the ceramics to shift around on the screen and create pictures..."
I'm suspicious of this painting. Maybe the chief will get killed somehow or something and we'll have to investigate the blood on it or something.
Aircushions inside aircushions? A DOUBLE INFLATED EXPERIENCE
how do i do my job
OH IS THAT IT I WAS JUST GOING TO GO HOME AND HAVE A PIZZA
(neo kobe pizza)
(actually ancient slice of pizza dropped in coke)
I'd do it, but I'm so busy sitting in this chair.
JUNKER RUNS A TIGHT SHIP.
We're stalking you though, since you're probably going to break something.
Katrina katrina... oh right, Jean's daughter. Yeah that'd suck pretty hard.
THAT'S THE IMPORTANT CONNECTION IN THIS CASE!
Who are you, David Brent all of a sudden?
JUNKER was looking for sharp people.
Whatever, I'm out of here.
THOSE GAPING HOLES IN YOUR CHEST
Gillian: ...I was right there. :/
Mika, why are you referring to yourself in the third person?
Also I don't think anyone's ever said crying vigorously before. TRANSLATION!!
I forget what it was I was doing here, maybe investigate?
YOU ARE MARRIED TO ME. >:|
YOUR FEELINGS DON'T MATTER TO ME
TALK TO ME MIKA
TALK TO ME
I barely knew him but he was like a brother to me.
I'm pretty sure "what's going on" is that Jean's been put in the Bye Bye Box and you won't be seeing him again for a long time.
You're harshing my buzz Mika I'm leaving
OH GOD HARRY'S BEEN SHOT
Oh no wait he's just drunk. He does the hilarious overdone drunk slur too. AH, THE VOICE ACTING IN THIS GAME IS A TREAT.
Basically Harry's all IT'S YOUR FAULT JEAN'S DEAD GILLIAN I HATE YOU YOU SUCK ;_;
And Metal's all no it wasn't.
But Gillian's all like "well yeah it was kinda my fault my bad"
And Harry's all weeeeeeh
Then we gave him the memory chip from Little John.
WE WERE IN LOVE
IT WAS GOING TO BE BEAUTIFUL
Who IS that? Blondie? Madonna? I have no idea.
GILLIAN LIKE PHOTO
JEAN AND ME WERE BEST FRIENDS IN GRADE SCHOOL
BOWLHEAD HARRY HE CALLED ME
Yeah brandy is very neopolitan.
BUT I CAN MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER HARRY
LET ME TOUCH YOU
Is Metal sitting on his belly now
No wonder he's drunk if the Junkers around here just paw at him when they get bored. Maybe that's why he's so upset Jean died. WHAT HE AND JEAN HAD WAS SPECIAL ;_;
Sooooooo 1997 then?
MY PARENTS ARE DEEEEAD!!!
What, is that Metal's first memory? His consciousness is finally in place as Harry leans over him with sake-scented breath, and his first task is to put a coat over him after he passes out?
Or maybe Harry just likes programming all his traits and preferences into the Navigators so they can get him things when they're off duty. METAL SNATCH ME SOME SAKE HAHAHAHAHA PRETTY CLEVER EH
metal all |<
Is it some kind of plasto-ceramic that can mold to my hand?
We're not going to get anywhere this way guys.
My little text file pays off totally writing this down.
Holding onto a faded picture of Jean, weaping beautiful crystalline tears into his beard. Their love was so pure, so true. Why, god, why.
DO WHAT I SAY
I'M THE MAIN CHARACTER HERE
You put your hand in one guy's jumpsuit, man
Reason for taking leave: Illness
Type of illness: broken heart
Alright I'll leave Beardy alone to mourn his lost love
If Navigators are supposed to complement their owners, like taking on traits they don't have, it amuses me that Metal becomes the leader most of the time while Gillian's all like "... yeah let's do that"
I don't know why they hired me, really. Pretty face I guess.
"It says 'To Jean, we love you. You're much better than Gillian' on it."
"I wasn't even working here!"
"They don't like leaving things to chance."
No, let's sit on it and discuss the day Gillian YES LETS LOOK INSIDE
No, that's where he keeps all the cakes. You've spoiled the surprise now.
KEYS KILLED MY GRANDMOTHER
IT WAS SO LONG AGO
I CAN'T REMEMBER
I would, but my hands are in my pockets, so you know.
You are sinfully lazy, Gillian.
I am going to zap you later tonight while you're sleeping
and you won't enjoy it
Wow, something actually made of wood.
He wore out a spare? Jean really worked hard, wow.
Gillian sits and puts on Jean's coat, strokes his arms and cries.
YESSSSS i am so relieved when i pick up things in this game
I CAN SOLVE THIS PROBLEM
IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK, I MEAN, WE DIDN'T EVEN TURN IT ON
Tetsuo, what were you doing in here
:D :D :D I love those floppy disks, I still have a few lying around here.
So it's apparently ulcer medication. Gillian speculates that Jean wouldn't have eaten something like buffalo meat if he had an ulcer, and therefore must have had... A REASON TO EAT IT! DUN DUN DUUUN.
I still have the disks with Space Quest 3 and Populous on them. Ah, memories.
NO NO NO PICK THEM UP
I hope you're right Metal in that we didn't need to pick those up
You better be
OTHERWISE PEOPLE MIGHT THINK PEOPLE ACTUALLY LIVE HERE
So. Jordan. We meet again.
So you don't want to eat ice cream near it, if your hands are too cold it won't work.
Come close to me
This will never backfire.
Alright this time I think I got it
I'm surprised they didn't have weight as "top secret" or something.
Mika apparently has a bad reputation for marring things.
Mika moonlights on the side as an anorexic bondage telepath in a gasmask.
Let's see what ol Deady did.
Jean didn't you verbally harass a bunch of delinquent teenagers in detention one Saturday morning?
Oh wait it is 2047, I don't know where I got 2056 from. Haha. I thought for a second that maybe some weird coverup was going on with the time but it turns out I just pulled a random number out of a hat somehow. GO ME.
Chief throw this water fountain through this window
Chief I didn't know you were once Yosemite Sam
Hey, that means Jean is older than the Chief. Huh.
Specialized in CQC.
Aww. Well I guess that'd make sense, since Snake is off the radar most of the time.
One of the people listed before as being killed in action, if you don't remember. LET'S SEE WHO THEY ARE
We're pretty sure it was a Snatcher anyway.
Maya Fey what are you doing here
BLOOD TYPE O NEGATIVE
SHE WAS SNATCHED AND KILLED JEAN
There is absolutely no way this won't come up later. I am putting money on my Katrina is a Snatcher theory now.
Harry Mason is currently looking for his daughter, have you seen her? She has short black hair and is about seven years old.
Man it doesn't help that even your last name sounds like Harry's, buddy.
Hey, he and Jean are the same age! Hmm.
Another tragic marring.
What, did the scientists and police just ditch everyone else when they "combined" to form Junker? Cause Junker has like... four people in it.
Slept with his stepmother NO WAIT
One People's Choice Award.
IT'S ALREADY ACTIVE!!!
Metal Gear has a nuclear payload OOP
See this is why you don't accost people in the street all ARE YOU A SNATCHER YUO'RE A SNATCHER AREN'T YOU LET ME SEE YOUR HEAD SLITS
Someone tells me that they didn't really get to the root of his murder.
He is a carrot.
They really DO remind me of Snake and Otacon THANKS FOR BRINGING UP THAT COMPARISON GUYS I CAN'T GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD NOW
Really. I'm kind of intrigued now.
Oh hey, it actually works now!
Then I went and put in the number we looked up in Jordan before for Junker Headquarters.
AAAAAAAAGH THEY'RE IN THE
Gillian: tee hee :B
Let's call the... what was it. I forget but there was another number in Jordan before, I forget what it was.
Although lol, they had a little clip for this that called the company JT&T. Heh.
Alright let's call the real phone number we're supposed to call
Gillian is unimpressed. This dude has the worst voiceacting ever, it's hilarious. Basically he was Jean's informant, or something.
I forget what the trick question was. EH.
Not a very suspicious informant in which case.
What you just told me to? Or are you making sure I'm going to do it?
Oh, well that's convenient.
Yeah, real good passwords. idiot.
If playing the role involves knowing basic facts, sure!
You didn't TELL ME ANYTHING BEFORE
oh frick he changed the question
i wasn't paying attention to the rest of the entry
But thankfully I had all these screencaps, so I just went through and found the answer. :B
Informants in Neo Kobe are kind of dumb.
LET'S HARRASS HARRY SOME MORE
Oh hey, new dialogue options!
that was very helpful thank you
Run a very tight ship here.
Oh hey, that might trigger something useful.
Or all the porn.
Harry why is your tongue in my mouth oh gooooooood
I'm a big baby.
Just four or five of them, that'll be enough.
55 is young?
When he was young would be... 90's/early 00's. WHERE ARE MY BRAIN VITAMINS
Being a model is a really fun hobby, anyone can do it!
That makes it sound like an informant is like a thighmaster or something.
Kojima: UNF UNF UNF NANOMACHINES UNF
METAL HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT
I'm going to investigate you.
you like that
SEARCH... SOMETHING, I DON'T KNOW.
His strange, blocky handwriting.
Finally someone who knows what a key is.
:D :D :D
Colleague of mine for like ten years died but hey life goes on did you watch the game last night
HELP I'M DEAD
With their soft buzzing
All puffy and red eyed, it's wonderful.
I JUST LIKE FLIRTING WITH YOU TO REAFFIRM THAT I'M DESIRABLE TO OTHERS OKAY LEAVE ME ALONE
You're not talking like a normal human being, for one.
Bwaa bwaa bwaaaaah.
SOUNDS LIKE MY KIND OF PLACE.
Using my godgiven right to feel up random people?
Hahaha but wait, did Gillian stand there and go I'M GOING TO INVESTIGATE MIKA NOW or what
haaahahahaha oh man
I don't even know why but hahahahahaha
WHAT ARE YOU PSYCHIC
Thanks that was not really helpful at all.
That sounds... foreboding.
is this a dating sim now
HAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh man I hear this with the same type of faily intensity as Raiden when he MANAGED TO AVOID DROWNING!!
Humor him, maybe he'll go away.
How can he smell her through the glass
STOP IT STOP FLIRTING WITH OTHER PEOPLE THEY ALL HATE YOU I'M THE ONLY ONE THAT LOVES YOU
Bwaa bwaa bwaaaah.
Persuade? Gillian you're getting stalkerish now.
IS THIS A DATING SIM NOW? KOJIMA WTF
And as long as you follow the steps exactly then a women will always fall in love with you i mean it's down to a science
Yeah, that'll make her like you more.
WHAT GOOD STALKER TAKES NO FOR AN ANSWER
I bet Gillian's going to pull the old ditcharoo like Snake did in Metal Gear 2.
Ha ha ha ha ha I'm going to cut out your eyes and keep them forever
Is this note really THAT hard to understand? FIND HIS HOUSE, SEARCH IT. MY GOD, I'M A DETECTIVE!
You pulled it from his still warm corpse didn't you ha ha ha ha how nice
Gillian stop being creepy.
NO IT'S MY SUPPOSITORY
Alright I'm out of here.
I MEAN HE'S DEAD BUT HEY WHO CARES LIFE GOES ON HA HA
I was really the one most hurt by losing him, having talked to him for a grand total of two seconds.
We have an open relationship.
FINE I'LL CALL HER OKAY
I GOT IT
As usual, let's just go down the list from the top down.
WHAT WILL WE FIND AT GILLIAN'S APARTMENT? TUNE IN NEXT TIME!
