Finally completed X2... Years after first playing -.-

Rate this Entry
When I restarted playing X2: The Threat (as put in last blog) I set myself the mission of completing the storyline, meaning I'd have to get past spoiler: the final battle against the M0 in Omicron Lyrae. Previously, I entered the battle in a Teladi Osprey and easily killed the Kha'ak but, I really struggled when you needed to move to the navigation beacon... I now realise that the issue was the sheer speed of the ship I used back then That's when I gave up on progressing in the storyline and I haven't passed it since...

Anyways, I decide I was gonna play through the storyline with a Paranid Perseus this time (3 Beta PSGs ) and I get through the story missions fine, taking breaks to earn credits and finally get my chosen ship. First issue I encounter is spoiler: in Ore Belt where you have to find the hidden Kha'ak base. Also, I have issues with cargo capacity, Can only fit 3 25MW shields, 3 Beta PSG, 3 Alpha HEPT and 28 Energy Cells before she's full :/ But I wouldn't change ship as I was an idiot on a mission

I plough through the rest of the story, I finally get to the mission where you gotta go to spoiler: Omicron Lyrae West Gate, so I engage auto-pillock to get me there occasionally stopping to save and I encounter a mission to protect Thyn's Abyss and I was astonished that the Boron came to assist I go around killing Xenon with either Alpha HEPT or if it's just me and Xenon ships then I use Beta PSGs. Eventually I realise that the Xenon K that frequently appears is all that's left of this invasion and I've been killing ships trying to get through this sector! So I engage auto-pillock to follow the Xenon K that's being harassed by an Invincible Hydra (had 0 hull) that I forget the name of. Once that's done I decide to fight my way through the Xenon sector to the south and find that triple Beta PSGs are lethal to capital ships

So I get to [spoiler]Omicron Lyrae[spoiler] and I work through the mission to save spoiler: Kyle Brennan and I finally manage to get past the point that I was having before with my current ship (slower and more accurate to turn and alter speed) and I complete it But afterwards I had several Scouts (still Unknown Enemy Ships) trying to take me down so I frantically attempt to take them down so I didn't have to go through it again >.< spoiler: After defeating them, I'm left wondering is this it? I've helped save the sector and I get the message from Ban Danna telling me how Kyle and Saya are doing , but that was all?!?

Well, I was happy to finally see how spoiler: Bret dies, heard about that in X3TC near the start of Operation Final Fury... And also to see spoiler: Bret's "funeral". Either way, I'm really happy to have finalkly completed the first game (and the one that introduced me to) in this series
