I noticed a while back and was reminded again after playing a few matches against The Gorgon, that none of the Hunters call her that. They don’t refer to her as that spider-bitch or Basilisk-looking monster. Anyone else notice this? When a monster is spotted, it’s sometimes referred to by its actual name, but never Gorgon. She is simply called ‘monster’, ‘it’, or ‘beast’.
I guess the development team hasn’t loaded any dialogue other than Kala’s about the Gorgon. And then there’s the conversation between Jack and Markov about the rumored monster that has spider legs. Also, most of the monsters’ attacks are called out every now and then by the Hunters. Like “It’s breathing fire!” or “Lighting incoming!” Yet no one screams out about the acid or spider abduction.
Lazarus even mentions that the Monsters seem to adapt. After Markov killed a Goliath with his Lightening Gun, the Kraken came out. While Wraith seemed to take its stealth ability from the Supports’ cloaking. So you know, the monsters Evolve.
With Gorgon, it seems the monsters took a page out of the Basilisk Nebula’s book. Something that would freak out every Hunter. Especially Slim, since Gorgon could be called his messed up cousin. Even Torvald, being as hard as nails, was concerned about the Generation 1 Basilisk men losing any sense of humanity cause he knew a man who became one back in the day. So a Gorgon could bring that fear 10 fold.
Let me know what you guys think. Do you think that the TU9 will bring more dialogue about the monster who will never be named ‘Miley’?
