After entering Fontaine Futuristics, I am met with a recording by Gil Alexander. That dude Sinclair (You would think I trusted him by now. The answer is NOPE.) informs me that Gil was involved in Big Daddy research. So I get super excited. I want to know all I can. I get to go back underwater for a little bit, which is one of my favorite areas to explore. I think it’s the prettiest part of Rapture. The bright coral and little ADAM slugs. It’s peaceful, and now and again you glimpse a Big Sister swimming around. They sure are graceful for such killing machines. Schools of fish swimming around ruins. It’s my favorite place.
Some bot starts flying around with a video. I have no idea what it’s saying to me. I think it’s part of the story, but legit it’s too filled with static for me to understand. All I know is shooting electricity at it was a waste of Eve, and I was soon in a battle against a fucking Houdini. After I battle a few Splicers, Sinclair explains to me that it was that Gil dude and he’s not batshit cray cray. Which may also be why I didn’t understand anything. Thanks, Sinclair, you shady shady dude. I start to wonder what Mark is up to. I wonder if he’s found Cindy yet. Why is that such a sporadic storyline? It seems important, but most of the time no one is talking about it and I’m just left over here like, “Well… do I get anything more for this? Will I ever know?” I will be annoyed if nothing comes of it. That bot comes back speaking nonsense again. I have no idea what’s going on by this point. A Big Daddy that looks like me shows up. I kill it, and it says it’s an Alpha Series. These versions are ugly. The Mr. Bubbles design was way better. Nothing intriguing about a dude in a steampunk diver suit.
The only thing at this point I have understood from the Great Alexander was him stating I was company property. I AM NO ONE’S PROPERTY. Well I mean I guess I was… but not anymore! Now I have to shut down his overide. Eventually I get most of the shutdowns, and get caged by the Great Alex in a battle royale with Houdinis and an Alpha. Which has made me not a happy Delta Daddy. It also sounds like I may have been a Splicer druggie before they shoved me in my suit. So there is that… But who knows I don’t really understand what the bot keeps saying.
As I proceed to find Crazy Gil I, through diaries, start to learn that Sophia Lamb had Gil do something terrible to himself. It sounds a lot like what she she keeps rambling about Eleanor… But I’m gathering this is her failed experiment, which is making me more and more nervous of what I’m going to find. What state is Gil in now besides unimaginable insanity? Back in the water I go. Whilst wandering I accidentally fall in a hole leading me to my next destination. Sometimes my clumsiness is helpful. Finding a secret lab was much easier than it should have been. Like how hard were you trying to disguise it? Is it a joke I’m not in on? Seriously, villains. Uh, that…that place is really dark… I don’t want to go in it. So after about 5 minutes of psyching myself up, I apologize for mocking the secret lab because the real deterrent is that shit is a dark hallway and if I didn’t have to I wouldn’t go in.
Till next time.
