And I finally got back to my Korx game. Sorry it's been so long. I've been super busy.
After a VERY long and well deserved corporate vacation, I came back to my ubercomputer(tm) to continue my extermination of the koopas. And I decided to stop focusing on weapons for the time being, since I'm already super strong, so I could get more diplomacy and work things out with the Tekk.
Oh, and hit the big red button to nuke two more of their worlds. Finally. These terror stars are freakin slow...
In fact, I'll go take a look at the Koopa tab on my WAITWHATTHEHELL?! WHENDIDTHEFUDDERMUDGINGKOOPASALLYWITHTHETEKK?!?! Oh gosh....oh gosh oh gosh....The koopa are allied with the tekk. If I am forced to break off war with them, I'm never going to be able to fight them again...
Well, two can play at that game! Hey, Tekk? Now that I've got some Majesty researched, how about that alliance? Because you're too much trouble to fight? Ok, cool. Am I still at war with the koopa? ....Good.
In fact....I'm close to the Yor too....Who is somehow part of the alliance with the tekk too....I wonder...Could I make that work in my favor? Make peace with the koopas and piss them of until they attack me, and then cause a dogpile beatdown on them? ....No, they know I'm strong than them....They won't redeclare war under any circumstance.
Hey, I wonder who else is allied with the Te-....AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
They have alliances with everyone except the Terrans!!!! And they're close to them! Oh no what did I do?! I thought by allying with the Tekk I coudl pursue an alliance victory, but instead....I just furthered theirs! Do I want to risk war with the tekk by breaking the alliance? ....Dammit, what the heck do I-
Wait....I see one chance. ONE.
Hey Terrans! Want to go to war with the Tekk? No? Dammit, that really- ....But you can go to war with the koopa? Do it Jenna Casey. ....Perfect. Alliance doggy pile, here we go! 2000 some odd BC is more than worth this.
I COULD break my alliance with the Tekk, but then at best I'd never be able to make an alliance victory with them, which would be a terrible option to lose, and at worst I could end up under a doggy pile of alliances. So while the Terrans are buying me more time, I am going to steal victory from under everyone's feet.
And then the Galaxy was consumed by war yet again, and everyone pounced on the humans. Good. I hope this will buy me enough time....Why oh why did I make that damn alliance? Well, there's only one thing I can do now. CRANK! DAT! !@#$!
...Is it working? Good, it's only double, not squared. Time to max out all possible research.
And then the Tekk rang me up. YEAH? WHAT?! WHAT DO YOU JERKS WA- ...huh? My...BENEVOLENCE has earned your admiration? You...Want to give me a gift? Oh...1234 BC. Hahahaha, you so funny Axel. Thanks! *close vidscreen* YOU TEKK SCUM I WILL NOT LET YOU WIN!!
Then the Terrans came calling. They were in desperate need of help (obviously). I hate doing this, but you know what? Here's 4000 BC, and a bunch of semi obsolete grand blaster mark 1s. You should be able to fight them off no problem now. Yes, Yes, I know I'm your hero. Just don't die!
Then a PLAGUE struck. ....Dammit I do not have time for this. I DO NOT HAVE-.....One turn? ....Fine. But only because I don't want my researchers to die. Make the cure, make it FAST, and then give it to my scientists first, NO EXCEPTIONS.
*BZZT* Oh HELLO, Altarians, what do you wa-...My benevolence has.....More gifts? Uhh...Ok thanks I gue-....YOU GUYS STILL HAVE A RESEARCH TREATY?! GIMME! GIMMEGIMMEGIMME!
Suddenly, A terror star crew buzzed me. They were in position. Next to 3 koopa worlds. Normally, this would fill my with evil ecstasy, but for some reason, it doesn't.
In fact, a lot of my terror stars are almost in position....I guess I could......Yes, I can probably execute the entire koopa race before I ascend. And I just found their homeworlds too.....You know what? I'll do it. I will make my last great action in this galaxy be the extermination of the entire koopa race. I'm vain like that. Wait...They have 9 worlds...I only see 7....Huh....There's only one place left where they could be hiding them. That tiny pocket of worlds in the corner. Let's make a super super fast scout ship MADE of nothing but engines, and then WHOOOOSH it all the way over there in 2 turns, and...AHA! Found you.
*BZZT* Oh, hey Azurelas, Koopa king. "You are small furry animals on the roadside! Your doom is at hand! For we have Plasma weapons!". I sighed, shrugged, and said: I have max level shields. Also, I have a Hulk-I mean, I have a pack of Terror stars nearing your worlds, guarded by fleets you can't even scratch. And I have the secret of the universe at my fingertips. Mock me all you want. You are about to die.
And then another terror star descended upon them. They keep sending armies upon armies upon armies of fleets to stop them, but my ships are far too powerful. Their doom approaches like a slow, inexorable death march. I can't imagine how powerless they must feel. I mean, I'm not some pathetic lesser life form!
The koopas begged for mercy again. "You know, I realize our mass attack on your species COULD have been misinterpreted as hostility, but we REALLY ARE interested in peace!". Misinterpret my middle finger, Azurelas. I appreciate that you are willing to turn over 2 of your last 6 worlds to me, in exchange for peace, but....I can't remember which ones are the ones next to the Tekk worlds, soooooo....Screw you. Offer denied. You should have surrendered when you had the chance. Now I want nothing less than your total extinction.
And then the koopa homeworlds were burnt to dust...Now the Koopa king will have to rule from a space ship! My last terror stars are almost in position. two of them are hovering next to systems shared by the koopas and the tekk, waiting for orders. And one is headed for their last 2 worlds. 14 weeks. 14 weeks and I will detonate them all. And in the ensuing chaos, ASCEND!
.....What? WHAT?! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!
You Koopas are surrendering to the ALTARIANS OF ALL RACES?! Cowards. You want your species to continue that badly? Fine. Go hide under their bed like the losers you are... In fact, you know what? EVEN THAT WON'T SAVE YOU. Azurelas flipped me a rude gesture and replied "see you later...IN HELL!". I laughed at him. No. No we will not meet again. I will transcend reality. Your reptilian brains are not powerful enough to ever follow us.
4 turns left.....Alright, let's get that last reasearch into Galatic Godhood started. Time to shake up this Galaxy one last time.
Hey, Tekk? I'm done with our alliance. "Oh...Ok...but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't surprised!". Surprise THIS, Axel. *BOOOM!* Yes, that's right. I just blew up one of your worlds AND an altarian world. Why? Because the Koopa once lived there. Just because they flipped to another civilization doesn't mean that the people down there have changed species. They are still Koopa, and they will DIE. Now, on to the nest shared system! Oh...There is a united planets law stopping me from attacking until next week? Well, screw it. I LEAVE THE UP!! I HAVE NO NEED OF YOU PEONS ANYMORE! NOW WRECK THAT WORLD! *BOOOM*
And now the last two worlds formerly owned by the koopas....*BOOOOOOM*. And with that, the koopa race is as good as extinct. What few still live will never be enough to bring their species back to any form of relevance. They will die out. It's inevitable.
And now that I have only one week to go until Godhood....Hey yor? *PEWPEW* I just shot your ships! HAHAHA. Hey terrans? *PEWPEWPEW* I just attacked your worlds!
Then, I slammed my palm down on another evil-button-of-doom I made, and hijacked all communications across the galaxy. Every TV station, website, everything.
ATTENTION EVERYONE! Now that I have your attention by making all of you go to war with me, I have an announcement. In one week, I will have the secrets of the universe and will ascend, taking my people, and the drath, who surrendered to my brilliance, with me. I have decided to leave behind an inheritance to all of you, equally. That inheritance is NOTHING!! Har har har! In fact, once I've ascended, all of my worlds will explode, leaving you with no spoils!
To the Terrans, I say thank you for being good pawns! To the Yor, I hope you blow up everything! To the Altarians, ....Uhh....Whatever. To the Tekk, HAH WE BEAT YOU! To anything left of the koopa race, let my legend be told for the last days of your race's history! And if Azurelas is still alive....*leans forward*. My name is Kralax of Korx. I killed your father. And now your race is dead.
Smell ya later! Gentlemen? HIT THE SWITCH.
And now...A GOD AM I!!!! WHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
And the universe was never the same......
So...Yeah. My Korx game is done.
It's too bad my game bugged up a bit near the end though. The Terrans actually surrendered to me the first time, but then I was forced to reload a previous save, and they didn't do it the next time...
Sorry if the end came so quick. But when I saw that the Tekk were about to make a diplomatic victory....I freaked out. I mean...I COULD have just broken the alliance and tried to take over by killing everyone...But considering the size of the galaxy, the slow speed of the terror stars, and how slow and annoying invasion is...forget it.
Next game I play, I'm taking the spore ships. I swear to mod!
