Crimson Skies COMPLETE

So Crimson Skies crashed to a huge finale, in which I first had to spend three hours swearing at my 360 (because the penultimate level was an extended "escape from this exploding temple! There are moving walls and flamethrowers and it's like any given Ace Combat tunnel level crossed with the ending of Starfox 64!" sequence) and then I ended up dogfighting the largest zeppelin in the entire universe.

The largest zeppelin in the universe is equipped with lightning bolt cannons, all the turrets ever, TWO of those tunnels you have to fly through to disable the internal core, and EIGHT F-5 TORNADO GENERATORS, one of which you need to FLY INSIDE OF to destroy the other power cells.

Also you fight it over the fog-choked ruins of downtown Chicago as you struggle to keep it from destroying major (fictional) landmarks. It was a hell of a finale and I was absolutely delighted by it. Plus I happened to notice that one of the game testers in the credits was furry fandom's own KieferSkunk, who I believe I once literally walked forehead-first into at a convention while squinting urgently at name badges looking for someone else.

So that was a thing. Little brush with, uhm, fame? Ish. Kinda.

So next up... Hat, please?




KICK KICKERSON IN THE LAND OF SPIKE RACKS.

See you next time.
