Warning: This assignment will self destruct in 3… 2…. 1…
Hey there people,
If you didn't read, I previously posted this week that I've been a bit reclusive over the past 14 days due to the birth of my son, Luke. I'm now going to try to play a quick game of catchup to cover my dereliction of league and blogger duties. What better way than through some lists of Spies I'm fond of.
Spies - Command and Conquer Series - These little guys wreaked havoc on the battle fields...just keep them away from Dogs who could sniff them out. I loved when they infiltrated a building and there was the perfect effect of muffled gunshots and the building turns your color. Way to take out those guards and capture the structure, Mr. Spy! They were Red Alert's version of the GDI commando who sounded surprisingly like Yukon Cornelius.
Spy Hunter - dunno if it's the car, the driver or that they are neither and they are simply killing spies throughout the game that simply loops the Peter Gunn theme throughout its course. This is one NES game that doesn't mess around with spiked tires, smoke screens, snipers shooting from limos... oh yeah, there's nothing quite like slamming one of those bullet-proof bastards off the road.
Aeon Flux - Steampunk before it existed in Peter Chung's dominatrix inspired femme fatal leaping from planes, elevators, stealing alien eggs, pulling microfilm from false hinged teeth...and dying every single time. This Monican agent (we found that out in the way less entertaining series where they talked...wayyyyy too much) was at constant odds with her Breen arch-nemesis and lover Trevor Goodchild. Ah hell, whatever issue you may have with the series, the shorts (especially the one entitled, "War") were a pinnacle of MTV's heyday when Liquid Television was on the air.
Bothan Spies - Little is know of these ubiquitous spies in the Star Wars saga except that "many of them died to bring us this information"...for apparently no reason too since the emperor gave them that false information to lure the rebels into a trap of charging their entire fleet at a fully armed and operational second Death Star...thanks Mon Mothma.
The Spy (Team Fortress) - French, smokes, stabs you in the back...oui oui.
Da Fino - I'm a Brother Seamus! - an Irish monk??? - I coulda did Eddie Valiant, Sam Spade or even Duck Twacey but you gotta have a dick on the list and this guy its just great.
