Here's a thought: morphing weaponry.
Some might be simple, like Widowmaker's Widow's Kiss, which swaps between a "Submachine gun" (more likely an assault rifle) and a sniper rifle.
Or some might be complex, like the Field Commander's gun in the cancelled Tiberium game, where it can become a railgun, a laser cannon, a lock-on missile launcher, and a grenade launcher.
And unlike the current ruleset, it takes less than five minutes to change between 'em.

● External Magazine (Xmag): This weapon uses a detachable magazine to group ammo for convenience. The receiver is often in the grip and is designed so the loaded magazine is flush with surrounding surfaces. Removing the old magazine (empty or otherwise) and inserting a different magazine takes a single use item action.
● Internal Magazine (Imag): This weapon stores a limited amount of ammo internally. The magazine can be reloaded at the rate of 3 shots per use item action.

Ya might want to extend what you know about "external" and "internal".  I've seen more than a few rifle type guns that required inserting a magazine into an internal compartment, usually requiring breaking open the rifle.  The Widow's Kiss above is one example, Deus Ex: HR's Combat Rifle is another.  Maybe a modifier where the reload time is longer, but the action is more reliable?

It also occurs to me that Civ: BE brings up an interesting point: weapons that are intentionally retro.  And I don't just mean steampunk stuff, since by the time of the future, the present will be considered retro, so you could feasibly "translate" the current firearm lineup, though not necessarily identical in action as they are currently.

Well Val, you wish might be granted.  Tekken 7 Character Excluded From U.S. Release After Negative Feedback

By the way, my Knights and Gunners Hearthstone deck needed something.  Turned out it was robots and tanks.  Grin

As long as we can do gauss/gunfoam pistols, multicannons, and plasma cannons with plasma rocket modes.

Those are probably available, but they tend to have amorph bits stuck to 'em.  Wink

* sigh.

Yes, let's ignore the more likely answer that whoever did it was attacking whoever happened to be in the hotel in favor saying that this was an conspiracy to kill people who dress up in a specific type of funny costume.

Seriously furries are so niche and obscure that most geeks don't even know it's a thing.

Alright, so its much more likely that someone just happened to be targeted while they were at one of these things.  Doesn't change the fact that someone released an attack that caused injury of multiple people.

Doesn't help that Furries and Fur Suiters are in fact incredibly unsavory if you get downwind

Meh, I guess.  I mostly just hang out for the artwork.  Tongue

I have no idea where to put this, but it definitely does not count as "cool".  Angry

"Intentional" Gas Leak Injures Furry Convention Attendees

Quote
Police believe a chlorine gas leak was meant to cause harm during Midwest FurFest last weekend.

A chlorine gas leak interrupted the annual furry convention Midwest FurFest Sunday morning as the Hyatt Regency O'Hare at in Rosemont, Illinois, evacuated the hotel at 1:10 a.m. following reports of a chemical odor. First responders determined the odor to be a high level of chlorine gas, which police believe was intentionally caused.

Ok, I will be the first to admit to a certain... draw towards humanized animal characters (or animalized humans, whichever direction you want to take).  I have stated a liking for foxes, after all.  And I can understand that there are some elements of the community which some might find "less savory".

However, just because people like to dress as animals does not void any rights they have as human beings.  For crying out loud, animism's been a part of human mythology for as long as there have been humans.  What we see today is merely a harmless modern take.

Then again, it could be that someone was specifically targeted, which makes the whole argument moot, but either way, not cool, man.

Li Xiaoyu: career martial artist in the vein of the Peking Opera. Probably the biggest light weight, but is at least a dedicated performer.
Michelle Chang: reservation child, street fighter, buffalo hunter, and general wanderer. Also known to carry a gun or a hatchet. A 20-something girl traveling alone across the American SW without disappearing or needing an emergency abortion is clearly nobody to fuck with.
Julia Chang: adopted daughter of Michelle with rather less transient inclinations. Has a PhD in Molecular Biology. Trained in Lucha Libre and her mother's hybrid arts.
Eliza: vampire. Also a terrible fighter.
Alysa Boskonovitch: gynoid.

...

Fighting game characters are weird.

Namco-Bandai announces a new fighter for the Tekken series.
Chloe the Pop Idol.

I was thinking about scouring Youtube for a scream of rage loud enough to be heard through the computer, but I am going to instead to murder some dirt. Angry

Yes. There is dirt here. There is dirt in Japan. It's symbolism, motherfuckers.
I don't see much wrong with her. Painfully cute perhaps, but not much more so than most other female characters from the current Tekken inventory.

And you can beat the living crap out of her in a morally clean way, so there's a plus.

...What?  If they didn't want it, they shouldn't step into the ring!

If you jump in during the Hearthstone Goblins v. Gnomes pre-launch (going on as of this post), you will get a free Arena ticket, where you will get a chance to try out a few of the new cards ahead of time.  You can also preview the cards in Your Collection by turning on crafting and clicking "Show Spellbound Cards".  Lots of neat Mech stuff, and some non-Mech stuff as well.

*Checks Steam* And hey, Dead State is now on release code.  Might be something to check out as a warm up for Z-Corp.

I never watched Futurama.  I do not find this to be something to be disappointed about. Tongue

I see your demotivator, and raise you a moo.  With the addition that hey, it does in fact do a body good!
