All and all, I like the series so far. The pacing is good most of the time and you have an undeniably thorough understanding of writing action scenes. The big thing I'm going to focus on is the implications of the experimental armor mod you introduced. Swapping between 15 pounds and 2 tons in what is to be assumed to be a fraction of a second has fantastically explosive implications tied to it. Let's say the armor a regular operative had an exoskeleton rig that allowed a 1 ton object to move at 1 mph; since velocity is relative to the force exerted on a mass, if that same operative went from the 1 ton setting to the 15 lb setting, they would suddenly be moving at a speed just shy of 147 mph! Imagine the distance someone could jump if there was a rig that allowed an average jump at 2 tons! Instant sonic boom in a can, if not a full superman space jump! I can't wait to see what you do with this!

The ending of this chapter reminded me of the quote from Harvey Dent in Batman: "You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." In the game Jack Harper lived to become the villain. He may be guilty of terrible crimes, actions were those of an anti-hero, but at least he was still fighting for humanity rather than having been corrupted by the Reapers. :)

I imagined the Geth v Crew fight scene as this sweeping cinematic shot, tracking from character and it was glorious

I'm trying to figure out why they didn't just open a portal.

This looks promising, what I've read so far is enjoyable. Curious to see where it leads ;)

jenkins dies so quickly in game, we dont even get to know him. here you make him a determined, if slightly reckless, rookie willing to die to save lives. in another note, not getting the beacon info will have an effect

he couldnt save his baby sister, that is one of the most heartbreaking things ive read. the galaxy is about to learn how far xcom will go for those under its protection

Hey Warhammer 40k is mostly justified. I know that it was only mentioned but with Chaos basically having the ability to fuck up almost every sentient beings shit (including A.I's...wow A.I's corrupted by chaos what would they be called "chaos intelligence") that and everyone is fighting something. Orks fight each other when not fighting other races, Eldar will fight either their edgy (and bloody) BDSM cousins who want to kill or rape everything, Humanity or Chaos. Then lets not forget the tau (from the wise words of kitten the "Bluegrey fish-like people with a vagina on their forehead and giant stupid looking war gear with no skull ornaments on at all and weaponry that makes pathetic "pew pew" sounds when fired" guys) who want people to obey their "greater good" which means do whatever the Ethereals want or die...basically the entire galaxy is fucked up and you can't be nice at all because everyone is most likely gonna be killed by either Tyranids or a massive selfdestruction of the imeprium
wow that felt good to say, anyway the 3 laws of Robotics were kinda stupid since it depends on a persons ethics and it was made so that in some way it could be used against humanity

Well that was quick
