It wouldn't make much sense if you didn't lose people along the way, so yeah, those tissues will come in really handy.
Btw this all makes me worried that Gillian's character will only get like 1 minute of screentime in the entire game
Yeah... Some people are bound to get eliminated. I wonder if we can do anything to save them - probably not much. The PC isn't really that high ranking military personnel. Maybe that changes in episode 2. But anyway, it sounds like it's important to get to know your mates.
I'm pretty sure that it will be more than 1 minute. It' more likely that her "father" would die.
I wonder who plays the female player character... Or should I say voices since Ian Duncan plays both. Jennifer Hale was in Freelancer so I think she's one possible candidate.
Today's AtV was rather interesting (and long!).
