Scully is great when he picks up the phone... almost forgot that one.

But still in favour of Reaper... his remark when you hire him is great.

Static is the funniest Wink

I also like Steroid for his stupidity.

I like Trevor, because he rocks, there is nothing he can't do.

Reaper. He's by far the toughest of them all.

He has a sexy, professional, pragmatic approach on his work, but also thinks of it as a form of art.

He's badass.

"Mother of god".

Oh, I do have a girl. Albeit, I did dream of another girl just last night. Not like that means anything.

She(who I dreamt about) is one of them "innocent virgin" types. You know, that friend you have, which is also a friend of your girlfriend, so you know that there are no possible chances to even touch her without very harmful consequences, but you still always knew she had a thing for you. She looks at you awkwardly, turning her eyes away when you notice she's staring at you. She behaves jokingly and with a smile on her face when you're talking to her, but you also notice that underneath her appearance, she's nervous and lacks self-confidence in the way she speaks and acts near you. You know she'd let you bed her, if you'd put into it.

To add, she's quite nice to look at. She's tall, thin (but not too thin, mind you) and has dyed black, mid-short hair. She has a small, cute little nose, a nice mouth and a pair of pretty eyes. I wonder what kind of appearance she has during sex(which she by the way has never had, according to my sources). That expression girls make just when you thrust yourself inside them is a thing to live and die for. Oh boy, I'd sure like to get to know her more "inside" like, you know?

Nothing more will I tell you about her, or this is the internet after all. Accessible to everyone. With a slight chance, somebody who shouldn't might stumble upon this piece of text here. And if that was to happen, I'd prefer for it not to be traced to me In Real Life.

Don't get me wrong. I love my girlfriend (a lot). Although sooner or later we will have to break up. We argue a lot. We both tend to get irritated really quick, which makes spending time with her sometimes rather complicated. More than it should be, definitively. She's also quite naive, really. A feature I despise in people. Also, a man doesn't only live from his bread, eh?

Talking of which, who said I'm a man to begin with? "Men" also reminds me about the more "on-topic" themes of this thread.

How come Reaper can't be sexy? He doesn't only have the sexiest voice in the game, but he also looks like Clint Eastwood, only with a ponytail! How awesome is that? Long hair is a serious, big + to anyone's appearance, in my humble opinion.

He's the best. Seconded comes Ivan, who isn't that sexy at all, but has the advantage of having a street-credible, badass Russian accent.

Or to summarize it, "sexiness" is not specific to the opposite gender, even if you are heterosexual. The ability to judge your "competition's" (meaning persons of the same gender, nothing else) attractiveness is an important ability in nature, and in society.

Damn, this thread just went 3000 miles off topic.

I wouldn't say Reaper has a sexy voice. I think his voice gives confidence to others and express professionalism,even Reaper being more philosophical than his job needs.

I hate when Barry feels remorse...... :angry:

"Forgive me for taking out a life."(or something like this).

Say only "Groovy" ok?

Barry is a gentleman, and is also quite new on the job... What did u guys expect?
Well, i know this just went off topic a little, but i think that the merc's personality is one thing the developers of JA3 will never get right. Maybe the gameplay is gonna kick ass, but trust me those who enjoy a lot the personality of the mercs are gonna feel a little disappointed.

IMO Reaper is a little psychotic. I would feel a little disturbed when teamed in the same team as him.
off the top of my head:
Ice: reminds me of a more mature Spiderman, very likeable personality and funny man. if you bite it, Ice; who's gonna feed the dawg?
Buns: uppity woman, seems out of place in battlefield but her price is great albeit tires easily.
Steroid: Awful comic relief, but the high Marksmanship + Meaty HP makes him decent purchase. Plus lockpicks too.
Meltdown: What a B****! Awesome kill rate though.
Dimitri: His lines are so bad it's good. Too bad his combat performance is pathetic. Like a pathetic missing brother of Blood.
Lens: No nonsense Sarge. I call him 'Captain Arulco'
Ira: Overenthusiastic freedom fighter with tendency to fear army when finally meeting them. 'Oh no the army. I knew we'd see them sooner or later' <----After the 10th time I get really tired. But her dying lines were gut-wrenching. Tell my family...I died..fighting for freedom.
Biff: The ultimate loser, but think about it; if I were in that kind of business I'd be just like him.
Fidel is very random in JA2. I don't really get his psychotic nature, he doesn't sound angry just really sad. But the guy I really miss most is Leech from Deadly Games. 98 Marksmanship Grandpa with killing tendency to ignore everything for a kill.

My fave is Carl "Reaper" Sheppards.

Lines like:

"There is a reason for me finding this, just as there is reason behind everything."



"Top notch!"

"My journey has come to an end. For this trip anyway"

Good early development chars:
Igor: In my recent game he has 96 MRK combined with 90+ AGI & Night Ops+Stealthy....Awesome killing machine. 30+ Mechanic makes him capable of self servicing his gear.
Barry: Will outperform Red and most Explosives experts in combat due to high WIS and great statistics. Can even lockpick as well as mechanic.
Grunty: Good value, fast learner with MRK and Heavy Weapons specialist. Rough mechanic as well.

These 3 Guys will make it
B(arry)
I(gor)
G(runty)
late game.

Probably Numb. He seems to have exactly the same stats and abilities as any member from the Sex Pistols would.

In terms of actual awesomeness, Buzz! Any kind of psycho that doesn't require a medical deposit has my tick of approval.

Dzsono in his signature
Barry - The Hungarian with a name that doesn't exist in Hungarian.

How ture. Smile

My favorite is Grizzly. I played my first game with him, Bull and Fox in one team along with others. They were reacting upon each others move so frequently, it was fun to be playing with them. To my mind, Grizzly has the best lines from the enumerated mercs, and the best voice.
After killing Deidranna he said: 'Ding dong, the bitch is dead.' Unforgetable. Smile

You gotta love Maddog's reaction when he killed the Queen.

I always like having Len by my side. He is quite skillfull and extremely disciplined. Not that i have the "boss syndrome" but it's nice to have a merc that shows some respect to his employer unlike most of the high-ego AIM members.

That's funny. I always hire Len but he is the boss until I reach at least 5th lvl.


I guess that's why I win more often than not.

I wouldn't worry about barry's name.

We are talking about a game which one the characters is called "Helmut Grunter" Instead of "Helmut Gunther" Smile

It's all about fun.

Not Grunter, Grunther, possibly a reference to On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

When I was in the U.S. I can't remember how many times I heard this, "You're from Hungary/Budapest? Which state is that in?". I suppose I'm a little irritated at some people's ignorance. Mistakes are fine, but Barry isn't even close to anything. At least Grunty is a misspelled parody, which I think is just one of the many reasons why JA2 is AWESOME!

I can't complain about his voice, I quite like it. I would miss hearing his answering machine message when he says "mechanism". It sounds like he's having an embolism while trying to dislodge a fish bone from his throat!

And I really wouldn't know where to start or what to do.
Besides, my accent in English is flawless ;P

Haywire and Razor are my two favorite mercs.

Razor has a great attitude and his skills are amazing. He almost never sleeps, and while everyone else is sleeping he trains his mech skill and sooner or later he is my best mech.

Haywire is his friend, so he comes along as well. A little hero worship is good for Razor's morale.

You can add Numb to the Razor Haywire combo as Haywire gets to like him after a while too. Be warned though he is very rascist and won't work with mercs of any other colour.

That he is... that also makes him fit well with the rest of the team I usually like. Other then Reaper they are:

Maddog - straight up psycho.
Fidel - same here.
Ivan - pretty heartless.

and same for IMP, I make him aggressive.
