Jo has sneakily made the generic S. American dictator a nice latio brown. And given him some stubble. Nice save, Jo!

The Ishimura is really a bad place for "Backtracking". I mean: The Necromorphs are scarying the shit out of me, this game gives pure Adrenalin.

@Old Gregg: he might have missed the joke, but it's still made of win since that's a PERFECT way to mess up their plans. That and why would they have rockets and no rocket launcher? Don't answer that..............

Your Warcraft comics were a LOT funnier than this. Maybe this is refined humor though?

The armor on the "hero" dude is classic Unreal Tournament. The color scheme of the HuD is HL2-inspired. The dictator is obviously South American (silly hat and massive stache) but mysteriously white. The rocket pack is closest to the ones in Serious Sam, but is intended to be generic. Anything else?

Good thing for this boss is that this is not a classic Metroid game, since picking new ammo automatically enables the new weapon.

I like to think this is a combination of Doom, Quake, and Unreal Tournament.

Yep, that's right. I didn't get the joke until I decided it wasn't from a specific game.

It's a generic FPS game. It's not a real game. Stop asking what game it is. He's just making a joke how you get ammo for some weapons but you never had the weapon to begin with.

Well, you've stalled him for a bit, but I hope you know that when he comes back he's also going to have a rocket launcher with him this time.
