pdxdubin Posted May 10, 2013 Share Posted May 10, 2013 (edited) Watch this video, it explains it all.. thanks Kahruvel.. thanks.. I really want this now.. it looks like so much dam fun... especially a whole bunch of flying bugs in an open map.. DE you should totally do this! There's also this thing called "having some class" which makes this unlikely - the makers seem big on this "far-future posthuman conflict" theme - plus the setting *does* seem to try and maintain a certain veneer of basic plausibility, near-magical superscience or no. I want to slap you with a bag of marshmallows. Nooo it would have to be a specific planet or something in the system. Where you fight on the surface to take the planet over from bugs! It dose not have to blend in with ships or anything. Unless they are space bugs and they like are able to invade into maps and attack everything mid game. Like imagine playing a defence mission on xini, and bugs break through the windows and start killing everything >XD That's the Tenno, more or less, you know... that is assuming the Orokin weren't ancient history already during the bygone "Tenno era", but it doesn't sound like that to me. The unknown extrasolar species the Orokin apparently created the Infestation against might be a possibility, but since that'd more or less amount to a decent-shaped interstellar empire rolling onto the scene of post-apocalyptic interplanetary infighting it'd be sort of hard to make the narrative work... My bet? More human factions; the current "system maps" presumably only include sites of "mission interest" to the Tenno after all, there's a LOT of space to inhabit in the solar system given the general tech level. Unless the buggers are capable of normal sexual reproduction - which seems unlikely - then their numbers are "hard capped" by the number of lifeforms that can contract the Infestation and more can only be created by finding more hosts. Given the weird "techno-organic" character of the Technocyte Infestation (full machines are apparently more or less immune, which incidentally makes one wonder why the Corpus haven't driven the critters to near extinction long ago with their killer robot armies...) I'm guessing they repurpose the life-support systems and supply stores of overrun ships and whatnots to sustain themselves, which some have apparently done for centuries... ...but in practice, Don't Think Too Much About It. "Creepy critter" types like these aren't very good at surviving rigorous examination once people start asking inconvenient things like "so what do they eat out there in the void?" or "why haven't these ships fallen apart yet since no decent maintenance?"...

I would say the giant bugs could be like ancients, that kinda controll all the little and kinda big bugs that fly around!
