Third times the charm.. or in my case, sixth or seventh. Add my name to this damn list. Bleeding Knife route. Started as Rudra and Shiva/Roo for my CPU partner.
At least until I got into the helicarrier, and Shiva kept getting sucked out... and for the rest of the game, the CPU chose ROO.
Don't get me wrong. Roo's fun! But a potent ally does not he make. He did get me almost as far as the elevator to
before getting clobbered by some fat bastard and dropping out for the rest of the game.... but for my other partners they at least got INTO the elevator before dying.
Even with the loss of my ally, I kicked the Christ out of
and ran out of there like a bat out of hell.... stopping of course to remove certain time restraints.
By the time I got to
I took him to town. Even in hardest difficulty, he goes down like a bitch.
