Now that we’ve finished what might be one of the most boring parts of an already bad game, it’s time to get back into the swing of things…well, after we read the news and buy yet another mandatory thing. Personally, I don’t get that particular mechanic, because the only way you’re gonna be short on money is if you’re really, really, REALLY bad at the game or just want to torture yourself.
Media is still awfully quiet about it.
Augmented Eye talked about it but very briefly.
Maybe someone lost their job due to that one rogue article.
It was from Kim, she’s always trying to write serious shit but I think AE got tired of her.
So all we’ll get is clickbait from now on.
Gonna get worse at the very least.
White Knights say there’s a lot of people inside the building, at least three people already dead.
How is someone there shooting people?
Looks like it was the security from the building but I’ve got no details yet. Sounds weird as fuck.
Come on insider anon, you gotta give us more.
Doing my best here!
Thanks based anon.

And media still quiet about it.
Can confirm there’s an explosion, but it looks like it was just one of them.
So there’s more bombs? not just one?
Do we have any clue on who’s doing this?
I’m hearing from several sources that this is a group, a new one, looking to overthrow the government.
No names have been mentioned, and it looks like it’s not a group, but just one person who set up all this.
That’s pretty ballsy.
And this is just a rumour around here, but Alice_Rabbit might be involved.
A hacker is helping out hostages to escape, and they’re suspecting of Alice.
Huh, someone doing stupid shit on the internet is being actually useful!

Can confirm the situation has finally reached its end. The attacker was shot dead but a HUGE amount of data was released from servers all around the world. Remember the leaks from Alice? those were nothing compared to this. Proof of corruption, money laundering, espionage; it’s actually pretty unsettling.
The file is available from approximately 60000 sources, terabytes that contain all operations from the Glitch City government and White Knight operations. It seems the ultimate goal from the attacker was not to blow up the bank, but lead hostages towards servers inside of the bank, which had the files under several layers of physical security.
That shit sounds whack, how do you even make a plan this complex?
No idea, but that’s what some of the witnesses are telling the police.
OK it looks like I have to leave, but I’ll try to write down all the details for a future post. Gonna need some time though…
godspeed anon, thanks.

This game’s politics are akin to that of a teenager who just discovered what Anonymous is, except they never, ever went beyond that.
Famous hacker Alice_Rabbit “graced” the popular image board danger/u/ with a new threat, which resulted in the arrest of the site’s admin (known as Ferfer) for a second time.
”We have no details to give, other than that he was arrested as part of an ongoing investigation,” Cyber Crime Unit’s Lisette Blanc told The Augmented Eye during a call. “We are now busy tracking down the message that appeared yesterday.”
When inquired about the arrest, Ferfer would only respond with a calm “Not this sh*t again…”
If underwear you can change with a voice command was something you really wanted in your life, NANOCAMO has you covered!
Already providing consumer versions of their advanced nanomachine fabric, they plan to release a line of underwear that can change its look with a spoken word. No more stains in your white panties! Just change its color to black and you will barely notice.
That won’t change the smell, though. They’re not that advanced.
”We expect an increase in sales next year thanks to this innovative product,” a PR representative told The Augmented Eye. “I’m already using them. Super comfy, if you ask me.”

“I have a copy of the key, remembe-…”
“Wait, that’s how you greet me after so many days?!”
It’s what you deserve, Gil.
“I never doubted you’d be fine.”
“If anything, I’d have to cut your paycheck for leaving for so many days without notice.”
“See, Jill? “He’ll be there on Monday like nothing ever happened.””
“Wait, why does he have a copy of the key and I don’t?”
Because Gil doesn’t take creepshots?
“The need for you having a key never arose.”
That too, I guess.
“Anyway. Glad you’re fine Gil.”
“Thanks. I guess…”
Drinking game: take a shot every time a character says “…” or “I see.”
“What? Are you gonna make me wash the bathrooms again?”
“Listen, I don’t know who the hell you really are or what’s trying to come back to bite you in the ass.”
“But remember there are people that actually care about you. Don’t just leave like you did.”
“Especially after all hell broke loose. At least give us a sign that you’re still alive.”
“So you were worried?”
“Isn’t that normal?”
“When it comes to you, I don’t know.”
“She’s right, though. You shouldn’t make ladies worry so much.”
Eternal life advice right there.
“Check if the cats didn’t move the internet antenna, would you?”
“Because it’s yours?”
“But I told you you could keep it.”
“Sorry, I…couldn’t find it in myself to take it.”
“Partly because I didn’t feel right taking it.”
“But mostly because I thought you’d totally look cute with it.”
Take a shot.
“Don’t think I’m rejecting a gift of yours, it’s just…”
“Preserving cuteness is one of my principles.”
Along with suplexing people, I assume.
“Are you still worried about the whole bar closure thing?”
“Of course I am.”
“Not like I can’t work because of it, but you know…”
“All we can do is enjoy whatever time we have left here as best we can.”
“So, cheer up! Clients smell sadness and fear, and we don’t want that.”
Clients: the deadliest predator in the animal kingdom.
“Not really, no.”
“Anyways, let’s start the day.”
“Time to mix drinks and change lives.”
“Oh yeah, Gil?”
“Glad to see you’re fine. I mean it.”
“May I have your name?”
“Tell her it’s Brian.”
Meet the most unremarkable character in the entire game. I legit don’t know why he exists.
“Just a sec.”
“BOSS!! SOME BRIAN GUY IS LOOKING FOR YOU!!”
“TELL HIM I’LL BE THERE IN A BIT!!”
“She’ll…um…you heard her.”
“It’s alright. I’ll wait.”
“It’s weird for someone to come asking for her though.”
“It’s not so weird when you’re BTC’s Regional Manager in these parts.”
“Yeah, I guess that’s…”
Yet another shot.
“I guess I didn’t give you the best first impression.”
“Haha! Don’t worry, I know who I’m dealing with.”
“I’m not a fan of people treating me too nicely because of my position anyways.”
“Handle me like I’m just another client.”
“A-Alright. I can do that.”
“What can I get you, Mr. Brian?”
“Let’s go with the basics. A Sugar Rush, please.”
“Coming right up.”
“Yeah. this one’s nice.”
“Back in training, they made a big deal out of Sugar Rushes. Why?”
“They’re like the Fried Eggs of mixing drinks.”
Brian must be working as a games journalist on the side with a simile like that.
“They’re the most basic thing, but people can still mess them up.”
“Sugar Rushes are simple enough that you only need to follow instructions.”
“If you can’t even do that, your future as a bartender is not bright.”
“Huh…they never told me that.”
“You’re Jill, right?”
“Yup, that’s me.”
“Dana has talked quite a bit about you.”
Mostly about the whole stalking thing, I’d assume.
“And I guess you must have a few questions for me, am I right?”
I really should make a counter, huh.
“Mostly concerning the closure warning Valhalla got.”
“Can you disclose any information?”
“I shouldn’t, but you have the right to know.”
“Don’t mention it. Now where to start…”
“You saw the news on the information leaked during the Apollo Trust Bank incident, right?”
Does “reading about it on an image board” count?
“About the White Knights having lots of members from criminal organizations in their ranks?”
“Turns out the White Knights weren’t the only ones with shady people.”
“Some of those same folks have been trying to elude legal problems using BTC-certified bars.”
“The BTC bars have their own protocols, meaning the White Knights can’t dig too deeply…”
“…at least, not without going through a ton of paperwork first, giving the criminals time to cover their tracks.”
“Although it takes a bit of time to set up, it has apparently proven an effective method for money laundering.”
To be fair, most eating establishments that double as fronts for criminal activities tend to be really, really good.
“Where does Valhalla come in?”
“”Young” bars are the ones under the radar right now, and the modest-to-low income ones are the primary suspects.”
“It’s not just Valhalla. Any small bar with small income is being investigated heavily right now.”
“So the closure notice is due to low sales…”
“Among the reasons a bar can get axed, low sales is the rarest one.”
“If low sales were a problem, lots of bars would close every year.”
“”You’ll find out soon enough” huh…”
“Oh, nothing. Don’t mind me.”
“Seems your guess was spot-on, Gil.”
“If it helps, I’m doing my best to appeal in your place.”
“Most of Glitch City’s bars are a pain in the ass. They constantly give reports of chemical damage or shady drinks.”
“This is one of the few places from which I almost never receive complaints.”
I shudder to think what the clientele of the other bars must be like.
“The closest thing to a recent complaint was that whole Farmers Fabrics affair from a little while ago.”
“So much saliva…”
“I wouldn’t get my hopes up though.”
“Especially since the BTC will try to save face by axing as many suspects as possible.”
“Knowing you’re making an effort is enough. Thanks.”
“Can I get you anything else?”
“Now that I remember, the recipe book has a drink created here, right?”
“Oh yeah, the Suplex.”
“Get me one of those, please.”
“The registry form says this was an accident while making a Piledriver.”
“You can ask the creator of the drink just over there.”
“Ah, so you’re Robert.”
“Yes! That’s my name. I’m Robert, the one and only.”

“Jill called you “Gil” though.”
“Uh…it’s Argentinian slang.”
“R-Robert here is from Argentina, so we call him Gil.”

The Ellipses counter is broken.
“Sorry Brian, I was sorting some stuff at the office. Please come in.”
“I’ll be right there.”
“Any other questions, Jill?”
“Not really, no.”
“If you were to evaluate my performance right now, how would you rate me?”
“Clean and timely delivery of the correct orders. A top-notch bartender.”
“I’m surprised you haven’t met him before.”
“I received my training in another city. The regional supervisor there was some girl with a red mohawk.”
“Ah, I see.”
(“I wonder what Boss will talk to Brian about…”)
“Um…Jill, was it?”
“Are you okay?”
“Yeah…um…just call me Stella. And get me a big Beer, please.”
“Huh… Sure, on it.”
“A-Are you sure you’re fine?”
“You know Sei, right?”
“Of course, what’s up with her?”
“She was at the Apollo Trust Bank during that whole affair and…”
“She didn’t show up on the list of the massive body count in the aftermath, so…”
“I was hoping that maybe you’ve seen her.”
“As much as I’d love to say that I had…”
“Yeah, I figured as much.”
(“Man, the air is suddenly a lot heavier.”)
(“I mean, I could tell her that everything will be alright, but that would sound a bit…condescending.”)
(“sigh What does one do in this kind of situation?”)
(“Maybe a joke? Nah, that’d be tasteless.”)
Plenty of tasteless jokes have been made already.
(“Okay, just…try and say anything. At the very least, you’ll break the tension.”)
(“Maybe distracting her will be enough?”)
(“I don’t think clearly when under this kind of pressure, do I?”)
I don’t think you think clearly under regular circumstances, Jill.
“Uh…there was a private eye here the other day.”
“…sorry, I’m a bit on edge.”
“A private detective, I take it?”
“Yeah. Maybe you’ll want his services?”
“What’s his name?”
“I believe it was Art…Van, no. Von Delay.”
I still don’t know why George Costanza’s alter ego is a character in this game.
“Oh, that Art guy. Yeah, I actually hired him yesterday to look for Sei.”
“So you still have hope.”
“I’m somewhere between Bargaining and Depression right now. And I’m afraid to let go of Bargaining.”
“Is he any good?”
“He doesn’t look like it, but he’s quite skilled at gathering intel.”
“I believe he’ll give me answers about Sei…whatever they might be.”
VA-11 HALL-A: The JRPG.
“*sigh Sometimes I wish I had a magic wand so I could solve all my problems with a swing, you know?”
“Sorry if I’m making you uncomfortable.”
No one should have to say that in a universe where Dorothy exists.
“Oh, sorry. No, it’s not about feeling uncomfortable.”
“It’s just…weird. I usually try to say something to my clients when I see them down.”
“And right now, I can’t find any words that don’t sound hypocritical, useless, or tasteless.”
But the writers are gonna make you say them anyways, aren’t they?
“I’m glad to know you have that much common sense, at least.”
“All I can do is get you drinks. Can I get you anything else?”
“Something sweet. That’ll help me calm down a bit.”
Gameplay tip: when given the choice of a wide change of drinks, always go for the most expensive one and embrace the soulless capitalist inside you.
“Seems you really like Sei.”
Almost like you two are really, really gay.
“I don’t have brothers or sisters, and my social interactions are usually strictly business.”
“So Sei’s more than a friend to me, she’s…she’s…”
“Sorry, I brought that topic up at a bad time.”
“ahem Don’t worry about it.”
“As I was saying, she’s more than a friend. She’s my emotional support, she’s someone I can trust wholeheartedly.”
Sounds like the prime platonic gal pal to me.
“I’d say she’s like my sister, but siblings usually lack that level of trust.”
“I have to deal with high-class pricks of every race and upbringing on a daily basis.”
“They use a “business mask” to hide anything they don’t want others to know and I do the same.”
“But with Sei I can be myself, I can do whatever I want and vent all my frustrations.”
“She’s always been there for me, and now she might need me…”
Oh, just kiss her already and get it over with.
“But here I am, sitting in a bar, making other people do that job because I’m a useless pile of flesh!”
“…sorry about the outburst.”
“I’m actually kind of jealous of the level of self-control you’re using here.”
“I mean, I’d be a mess in that situation.”
Smells like foreshadowing to me.
“Still, would you like some fresh air? I’m gonna take my break and you could use some.”
“Well…for a given value of “fresh”.”
“I’m fine, thanks.”
“Gil, please service Miss Stella while I take my break.”
That wording makes me…uncomfortable.
“Sure, leave it to me.”
