I wish it was booze. I've amended it. Do the same for your own posts for me, please.

Just means that
Spoiler
she's actually in the game

which not everyone may know or want to know. Just being courteous, not calling anyone else out.

But your words outside the spoiler tag say...
"She really was the ***** in
Spoiler
the game
[close]
imho." which still tells everyone...

Spoiler
She's in the game!

Sidenote: Is there something wrong with me that I'm finding this conversation very entertaining?  ;D

Not sure if saying Monica is

is actually spoiling anything though?

Yeah, it's a spoiler for something in the game.

I just wish Monica had been the focus of the book to be honest. I found there was just too much stuff going on, without the time for anything to really get the time it deserved. I would have loved a better focus on her, the personal conflict with Hoenikker in particular rather than the one chapter it got. She really was the

Did you just put spoiler quotes around...

I think Hicks has been sneaking sips from Voodoo's Vodka!  :laugh:

I thought the game tied really nicely with the book, with Monica and all. Hopefully we get to explore Pala station as well.

Might want to point out that that's a spoiler for the game, not the book. Since we're in the literature section and I've read the book I clicked the spoiler and got spoiled, because I haven't played the game.
I figured leaving "in the final mission of the first campaign of the game." outside of the spoiler would serve that purpose.
True, but I read through in order, and that wasn't until after the spoiler. Maybe not a big spoiler, but still.

You didn't miss much, while the story is decent, the narrative of the game is very very bare bones.

Dumb little observation that I just wanted to throw out:

I think Hoenikker being a wimp in the book is meant to be the beginning of an arc - an arc that's concluded with

Just listened! I believe the comic with the pheromone cloak was Harvest/Hive and they used it to sneak through the hive to steal that sweet jelly. Hicks said Stronghold which also has a synthetic alien but I don't think it had the pheromones in it although I don't remember much from that comic except Jeri the cigar smoking alien lol.

Edit: I checked and Stronghold also uses the pheromone collars (although they mention the scientist from Harvest that created it) so good call out Hicks!
