Remembering Our Heroes 11/11/2016

by Joe

This Remembrance and Veterans Day, I want to honour all the veterans and all the men and women in service of their country. I’m reminded of my grandfather who fought in World War II and how his actions, and the actions of all the brave people who put their lives on the line, helped shape the lives we live today. Thank you for your service :D

As for today’s scene, I need your votes again! It’s been a while, eh? :D Should Bernie and Doc prioritize making Joe’s powersuit or Doc’s anti-machine rifles?

Vote now in the forums: http://forums.thepocalypse.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=630 . You do need to log in and while you’re there, let’s see if we can revive the forums a bit :D Thank you for voting!

As much as I want to see Joe back in action I think doc is right on this one.

I’ll have to disagree on that one! I think that the wiser decision might be to create Joe’s power suit. Joe already has training using his abilities and some of Bernie’s equipment. However if you were to mass produce these rifles, then you have to train every able man to properly use one! Although it may function like a traditional rifle it’s a new source of ammunition, and the weapon is a prototype. It may have fired once, but it could backfire at any other point!

Plus…Joe is currently filled with grief and anger, what better to take his rage out on than the approaching Machine army?

I think docs choice is smarter but im definitely voting for joes new powersuit because that would probably be more interesting

I’d prioritize getting Joe back up. It doesn’t matter if he’s a god or not, but he’s definitely useless as Emo. The last neet on earth.

Why not install a sentry gun of some sort of sentry gun on the suit? If Joe wakes up with the same identity in which he first met Bernie and Jess, he’d likely need a backup sentry to cover his back if he goes full retard on the battlefield again. It may even be installed with an anti-machine rifle. With an Aimbot installed on the sentry gun/ suit, it could possibly take out the machines more efficiently than another 3 foot soldiers with said anti-machine rifle.

Hmm, the logical choice would be the rifles, but, like others have said, the problem with that is that they are prototypes, and only one shot was tested; they don’t know how much the current rifle can handle, and the plants could fill the role easily enough.

As for the power-suit, even if Joe doesn’t wake-up, someone else could use it, not to mention how Arbiter only took a day(?) to finish (the designing was what took the most time), so they could just make some rifles while they design it, then swap to the power-suit after.

Jwya, I like that idea. The base AI’s mobile unit has been incapacitated, maybe use that as a base for the suit, load it with doc’s weapon and a truckload more sh..ooters, and use the AI to guide Joe – he tends to be retarded in the most crucial situations anyway.

Love where the story is going, the character development is just right in my opinion. Loving this!
