Well ladies and gentlemen, Thursday has come, and with it a ray of hope for Friday and the arrival of a much needed weekend. In today's Power Armor Countdown, we remain in the realm of video gaming, but do switch genres a bit, so to speak. Today we visit the game that changed my mind about First Person Shooters.
Republic Commando Katarn Armor. See, Star Wars can have armor worth a damn. The Katarn Armor in which Republic Commandos are clad is exclusive to them, and is perfect for their roles as self sufficient, behind the lines killers. It is equipped with shielding, armor protection, and a gauntlet mounted punch dagger.The Commandos themselves are equipped with Bacta implants which allow them to be revived by teammates if incapacitated. Essentially, Republic Commandos are Stronger. Faster. Better.
Plus placement for being the coolest armored humans in the Star Wars Universe. Minus for taking four of you to get anything done.
