Sin (Blade) USKing SiN Episodes: Emergence: Part 5: Hot Fiery Jetpack Death!

Ah yes, colon overload. The fifth part of Ritual's former federal QA agent Michael Bauer Russell's USK report is here (or rather, on Michael's blog), illuminating the wonderous ways of how SinTEK's unfortunate jetpack soldiers were treated in the German version of SiN Episodes: Emergence. Hot fiery jetpack death is unfortunately not at the top of zee Germans' List of Volksenjoyment, so Ritual had to make some adjustments here for Poland's sake. Anyway, obligatory slice:
The jetpack grunts have many different types of death animations. The server tells the client, "Hey, this dude is dead," the client randomly picks one of the animations, and plays it. I think everyone remembers the classic twirl-around-screaming-pack-explode-fall-with-a-crunch animation from the last trailer before release. Well, that animation is what directly led to this change.
It's yet another interesting read about how the game had to be adapted to suit the needs of the Fatherland. Click here to read the rest. Also, I know this actually went up the other day, but in a decidedly un-German manner, I was too busy basking in the non-glory of my birthday to notice. The sixth and final part of the series may or may not go up this weekend, so keep your eyes peeled.

I was reading on his blogs about his financial problems.
I'm happy to see that these problems have been resolved
somewhat.
