My Helldiver’s pod penetrates alien soil with a heavy thud. I call in a machine gun just in case things get hot when a bug scout signals that someone with enough firepower to level a forest is making his way toward their hive. Soon, I’m knee-deep in insectoid guts when two more pods fall to the earth (one on top of a rather large enemy), and two more divers emerge ready to give them hell. We form an unstoppable wall of fire, each character shouting gleefully at the carnage. A fourth member descends from the sky right on top my character with a sickening splat. But it’s no big loss. Super Earth has ample reserves to throw at the enemy, and I’m soon back into the fray, spreading democracy one round at a time.
