It’s never happened to me before, but, just a few hours ago, a giant salamander ate me, worked me through its digestive tract, and pooped me out an orifice in its tail. Yeah, it sounds weird, which is why it was such a surprise, but I sure as hell enjoyed the ride.
I’ve been rocking the Lost Planet 2 demo (Playstation3 version) this week, going online with BL editor and good mate, Nick Kyme, to hose down baddies in our search for glowing globules of T-energy. It’s a lot of fun, as I knew it would be (I was a huge fan of the first Lost Planet game) but I wasn’t expecting anything like the surprise I got when that big, slimy beauty gobbled me up. I was bracing myself for a quick ‘Game Over’.
Nick got swallowed soon after I was ejected from the beast’s rear, but he didn’t make it through the gastric tumult in one piece. Once his lifeless corpse lay sloshing around in the beast’s guts, it really was game over for both of us. Actually, I think there was a timer on the battle and it must’ve run out.
