In Response To: Re: Tour of Duty - Defend THIS! *LONG* (Godot)

: Cool Fusion now plays like the original. Correcting it would be easy. But
: would it be canon?

Well, AFAIK, the final terminal on Cool Fusion failed to show the 'Unfinished' message in the original game because of an engine limitation. So if you're willing to fix the switches on Defend THIS!, it should be worth it to correct the missing text on Cool Fusion.

Furthermore, the hidden text provides a small discrepancy in the story; Leela wants us to retrieve the Fusion Pistol, but if we don't, she doesn't really care. In any of the other levels, she wants us to complete our objective thoroughly; she even sticks us in a death trap on Couch Fishing should we fail to flip the switches, if you'll recall. So why on earth does she let us go even if we fail our objective? After all, she seems to think it would be foolhardy to send us into a vacuum environment with only our pistols.

All in all, it seems like fixing the text is easy and enhances the game experience; IMHO, it is worth it.

Vale,
Perseus
