Heheh.... Yeah, simple job here, with some great shots of Starchild going up against Tryton. Hard to comment on, but very great picture; nice seeing the mist get spat out again. Vision-obstruction is actually a great tactic for someone in power armor; if they don't have a type of special visor in place to see through it, or they have to remove the helmet. Tryton seemingly doesn't have the former and is unwilling to do the latter, so that makes them stuck truing to wipe it off.

Alex is still just going full-force on this, pounding on with every bit possible. It's a GREAT effect, beating the briefcase against Tryton's helmet.... Just a huge impact.

I like that Tryton admits to not wanting to use any bullets, but is now devoted to murdering both Alex and Mercy just for interfering, even though it could still turn out that it would be unnecessary. One, it's a good touch that Tryton is now committing to murdering both no matter what the outcome just on principle. Two, Tryton is also trying to play it like it's totally Alex and Mercy's fault for it. If they'd been polite enough to just let the robbery take place, murder in cold blood would only be hypothetical, not definite.

It's weird how much mileage Alex really gets out of spitting the mist, though I guess with being able to do it through the mask it does make it a very reliable way to stun someone that will very rarely be seen coming. Makes sense that it's something Alex comes back to frequently.

Kind of a hard one to comment on I think, but I am pretty happy with it. Mercy's interruption wound up not really amounting to much, but it did buy Alex time enough to get in some hits that were more substantive. Be sure to swing by Monday for more, eh?
