Just Cause Preview

No not the real life invasion of Panama by the US in 1989 but the upcoming Ps2, Xbox and PC game. In Just Cause you take on the role of Rico Rodriguez, an undercover CIA operative specialising in regime change, as he tries to overthrow the corrupt government of San Esperito. This rogue South American island is suspected of stockpiling WMDs and it's your job to negate the threat to world peace.

Just Cause offers the freedom to tackle your assignment however you want: play the island's factions off against one another; incite a rebellion among the masses; or build alliances with rebel forces and drug cartels. Explore the game's world of 1,225 square miles of mountains, jungles, beaches, cities and villages with a variety of air, land and sea craft. Due US 27th September and 29th September for Europe

Just cause you can doesn't mean you have to.

(please ignore me... )

The Elderly said...

no I have to (feverishly typing as the coffee granules enter his blood stream) must finish.... another one..... cant' stop, must work faster, production is the key to world domination.......

gnome said...

This of course justifies everything. Good luck. You'll be a wise if Elderly supreme ruler.

The Elderly said...

thank you, thank you, yes i can see it now........ ultimate domination...... world peace, doves and balloons in every city of the world with "help the elderly" written on them...... can't stop...

gnome said...

Paradise. Bliss. Please do save us all...

The Elderly said...

all is in order, just a hundred or more walkthroughs and the World will be mine........ well i'll share some of it of course.... how bout the US and England?

gnome said...

Well some of thm should be spared. New Yorkers, San Franciscans, blacks, chicanos, arabs, Oxfordians, the Pythons, Rowan Atkinson, Tim Curry, Terry pratchet and.. umm... tha's enough I believe...

The Elderly said...

Fwe have to draw up lists? let's see put down... the meek, the humble, anybody with a disability (no not George Bush) Angelina Jolie....

we should add more....Greeks?, your mum and Dad?

gnome said...

Yes, parents. Definitely. And some friends too I guess... Gnomes of course...

Could you please crush some vilagers? Thank you Elderly Sir.

The Elderly said...

before armageddon?, or do we get them through armageddon and then crush em..... that would be fun... to see the look....

no stop I've been watching too much Fox News Broadcasts......

gnome said...

Can't really say I get the Fox news significance, but as far as crushing is concerned, I believe we can do it whenever you want, oh allmighty one.

The Elderly said...

oh right yes, i forgot..... okay then let's crush half em now and half after we conjure up the firem and brimstone. You would't have a idea which village we should pick.....

you know being all powerfull isn't all it's cracked up to be..

Fox news, and their "glitzy" depiction of bombing of lebannon, more like an entertainment tonight feature....

gnome said...

Ok... got what Fox News is all about... We've got Ant1 and Alter here...

Any way... Please start with a village named Korfos. It's near Corinth. You'll find it.

The Elderly said...

okay i've got it here on Google Earth..... wow looks like village of the damned, any last words?

gnome said...

"Burn you vile forest burning un-evolved money grabbing bastards."

That should do it oh Allmighty.

The Elderly said...

Your much better at this than me, you might want to clean up the froth on your lips....... have you done this sort of thing before?

gnome said...

Burning villagers? No, despite me, no... Does sound intriguing at times... More of an urban-civic gnme you se...

The Elderly said...

strange i don't feel any remorse..... maybe we should install microphones.... next time... it was all very quiet..... too quite...

are you sure it's gone?

gnome said...

What's gone? Oh god! Was it here?

The Elderly said...

(checks logs......) yep it definitely existed, but now we've burnt a hole in the google map unless we travel there........... let's pick one we can verify!!!

gnome said...

Oh ok. We'll just verify one -like the thingy thats apparently gone- and verify it... Right? Nice.. Brilliant..

(gnome obviously has no bloody idea)

The Elderly said...

this world domination stuff is highly labour intensive isn't it...... (looks at gnome, whose scratching his head.....)

bear with me, in time you will come to understand that the serene simplicity of my master plan....

you do have my master plan.... don't you.... i handed it to you this morning.....
