The arena was so large I couldnt see all the walls standing tall in my Suit. Then the most painful news was delivered to me, the russian voice Spoke, "Thomas boy, you remember the girl?" Her image that was above my bed was placed on my viewing screen. I lunged as if i could save her there... As a rusult i nearly tripped the Suit.
"So help me... yes. I remember her." I say through gritted teeth.
"Does she have a name?" He inquires kindly mocking me.
"No, she doesnt." I said, concealing my rage, "Not for you."
"It matters not, whether or not i know her name, truth remains... You lose this match, she dies... with you." His voice was as blunt as a hammer.
The field was just a mass of dunes in sand. I ran my suit over there, avoiding using the boosters. The other was an amature, as soon as the match started I could hear him sonic boom. Which means he was moving using an Overboost. *** All power shifted to engines and engine cooling Suits will move fast but will be less accurate, and computer abilities, like locking on to targets, radar, will be down. ON the bright side, it moves really fast. *** I could hear him moving, which directions... fortunatley moving that fast dodging isnt an option for him. My Suits rifle set to one round bursts, i jumped up and fired three into its side. As soon as the rounds connected he landed and faced me, i quick boosted *the boost that pushes you to 120 mph for 2 seconds. A slight pause is needed, it drains energy faster to give a quicker boost, but may cause energy depletion or overheating faster.* Back behind cover, his shoulder mounted chaingun warmed up, and started firing. He started running closer, I backed up and used an Overboost of my own, rocketing towards the dune I lept off of it. MISTAKE NUMBER ONE: I guess the NewGen Suits needed to be angled back down, the shape and design of my suit, I flew too high. Due to this unsuspected accident i played off it, stopping the over boost, i was high enough i could wait before I hit the ground anway. Used my own soulder mounted chaingun and put my rifle on full auto. Bullets rained on him, unfortunatley he was adept, he used his boosts, and got behind cover, thought I did hit im a couple times.
MISTAKE TWO: Dont assume what your enemy has, especally with NewGen, they didnt set me up a fair match, missles were headed my way, he had locked onto me during mistake one. Before I knew it, I had taken more damage than him.
MISTAKE THREE: Sand may look conforting but dont use quick boosts to land in a desert environment. Not only does it leave a big smoke cloud saying, IM RIGHT HERE! Bullets were zinging throught there, like crazy, I was getting hit, and i got away, but he knew where I was.
CORRECT ACTION: When bieng chased, lead them to where you have an advantage. Like a short dune, when he boosted over it, I jumped and grabbed his Suits feet. His boosters started to heat up my arms and face so I quickly planted him in the dust. I ejected my shoulder chain gun and rifle at fist range.
He rolled around, and got up, but just pointed his gun at me. CORRECT ACTION: Throw off your opponent by using 'old' tactics like hand to hand suit combat.
He opened fire, but I quick boosted up to his face before any could hit me. I threw a collosal blow to his chest, only finding my left arm suffering major amounts of damage with it. "WHAT THE FUCK!" I screamed, suprised, both arent supposed to crunch! Especially with the method taught to us in those techniques, because you dont want to buckle your Suits arm, or Lock it. Now with a usless left arm I stayed close to him. Who tried to constantly retreat. He didnt know how to hand to hand fight with a suit, with better gun tech i guess it was better. Not for me, i used a quick boost to fire me in a complete circle and I preformed a tripping sweep. Its amazing how these are more in tune with your body than any others were. If that was the case why were melee attacks not used or taught?
Either way, my foot was damaged in that attack. Risking screwing up the Suit even more, i ripped off the chaingun on his back. No no, I'll end it quickly for him... i thought. Before he could grab his rifle i used a jet assisted *a punch or kick while boosters on just that arm or leg are active* punch on his heads compartment.
Which completley crushed my right arm...
I have a feeling Z is going to hate me. But, it doesnt matter as soon as i can save HER.

I awoke in hydro-med container. A round tube that keeps your body wieghtless for medical treatment. The only thing is everything they say is magnified.
The russian accent sounded, "He took out our leader, and almost died of psychic stress before i got a hold of him. Sir, that was eight NewGen suits he took out with a two generation old Suit!"
"It matters not, we have him here, we'll have him do some tests for us. Before the year is out he will join us." The boss said. "And as for the town... was it destroyed?"
"Negative... We left it, after we finished our objective. It would be a waste of ammo, there were no other Suits there. Foot Troops can handle that place now that he is here."
"Very well, I trust your judgment, Major, or should i say, Commandant?" The leader chuckled... looked over and i closed my eyes. "Ah, he is awake!" He tapped the glass, the sound pounded my skull, "See when you use old SHIT! It makes your head hurt doesnt it! You know if it wasnt for the one you didnt get, you'd be dead!" He paused... walked around. He looked like he was trying to decide something.
I tried to speak, but the oxygen breather, restricted most of that function. And I was pretty much held in place, minus bieng naked.
"If you work with us, we will find your family and spare them. If not, we kill them, and you." He paused. "All we want you to do is test some of our NewGen Suits, in arena combat. Of course, that'd be an easy task for you bieng hailed the Hero of The Cryses Event."
... The Cryses Event... Horrid Flashback
All the sudden i was back in my Suit. We were boosting forward in a wedge fromation. I lead our pack, mines detonated behind us... we were moving fast. A barrage of missles like arrows you would see in an Old movie. Only three of us remained... I gave orders to spread apart, we climed the desert mounds and found ourselvess heavily outnumberd. I had a tank cannon left shoulder missle pod on my right... oddly enough wielding a chaingun for this mission... and my Kinetic Blade by my side. I opened fire and slowed my boost enough so i walked. The barrel started to spin as i opened fire over the dune. One was gone almost imeadiatley, they thought I was destroyed already. I instantaneoulsy boosted to my left, dropped the chain gun and threw a punch at the gun arm of the other suit. That sent him spinning to the ground. I drew my kinetic blade and boosted to the rear behind cover of the dune, as bullets, and explosions came close. To me they were moving slower than a retarded turtle, when I got 'in the zone'. I high boosted to my right, and came above the dune once again. Decapitated the Suit that became in front of me. The remaining two spread out, using thier boosts. They circled me as they drew thier Kinetic Blades. The left one used a quick boost forward dash towards me preparing a forward strike. I quick boosted to my right, loaded my tank cannon and fired at his back by that time, the other was directly to my left I boosted in that direction and delivered my sword through him.
"He's fading fast..."
"KEEP HIM ALIVE SO HELP ME IF HE DIES"
"Shock shock shock shoo..
I screamed and the bubbles escaped my air mask. My head started hurting once again! Pain pain! BURNING
Then all the pain was gone. I was back...
The next time I woke up i was lying in a rather comfterble bed. Ahh.... I must be home... I rolled over and leaned to kiss my girlfriend on the cheek... but she wasnt there. There was never a time when the air tasted so horrible. Because it only confirms what I feared. The last few days wasnt a dream.
Which ment even worse. That my home was destroyed by NewGen for whatever reason they came. However I held my eyes shut refusing to believe what has happened. She just got up early to make breakfast... Yeah... breakfast. If today was what it was supposed to be it was supposed to be the day I proposed to her. Ask her to marry me.
But the pain of the dry air, the thinness of the bed discouraged my thoughts of happyness. I rolled back onto my back. My head still throbbing. Oh well, time to confirm my fears, I opened my eyes. A picture, grotesque, a woman in ratty clothing, dirty, obviously beaten or tortured, then I saw her face. Her eyes were bandaged... Once beautiful eyes... shining brightly even in the darkness... were gone. Only blood tears were on her face, her hair in shambles, and her lips made only the most horrid frown i've seen in my life.
It was her.
The one I loved.
The one I would die for.
Do anything for.
For what? Why?
First explination... What did NewGen want?! What was in my city that they could possibly want, a few really old veterans, an Older Suit, I just couldnt get it.
Then, someone entered the room. Some big burly guy curly black hair, medium fuzzy beard. The only skin I could see was his forehead, nose, eyes and lips... He spoke to me, "You there, see that girl? We found her, and questioned her about you... DO NOT SPEAK" He yelled as soon as i opened my mouth, "Wayne... Thomas, is your name, We all know it well, your victory at the Cryses Event was incredable. So as your new... employer... you will work with our equipment, make sure its up maximum standards... tho... No other pilot will probably use them to your effectiveness, however we do have some promising students." He paused, cleared his throat, "Your contract states, that you, Wayne Thomas, will be testing new equipment, and its affects on the human body such as psychic stress, streching, etcetera. If you refuse to reply the picture of the girl in your bed will be silenced forever."
Will be... She's still alive. I can save her.
"Yes boy you agree?" He paused too shortly... "Good."
Then the rutines came... Food, Exercise, Suit Testing, Suit Battle, Food Bed... Restart indefanatley.
My first day was the worst however.
I was introduced to my Mechanic, Adrian Smith, AKA, Z. Just another run of the mill NewGen mechanic. Then i was introduced to my NewGen Suit. They knew how i ran pretty well... Because for a NewGen Suit to look that good I was impressed. The core was almost shaped like the front of a

stepped forward, showing i wasnt down yet. However my battlesuit was heavily damaged, weapons were empty, and all i had left was a broken I-Beam, torn out of a crumbling building. 5 other NewGen Battle suits lay destoyed around me. I tried to look as intimadating as possible through a metal head about 3 times the size of me.
I was the last stand between three other NewGen suits and the only people that are dear to me about a mile behind me. The friends... the family... and yes... the girl.
I ejected the missle pods attatched at my shoulders. Those will make me lighter... faster...
I had to think of something. When the intercom opened, "Thomas boy," a heavy russian accent sounded, "You surrender your town, and we let your family and friends live."
"Yeah right," I retorted, "you'll have to destroy me before you get any further."
Engines are almost recharged I can boost again if I stall them for long enough. "Wait!"
"You take our offer?" The one said.
"What happens to them if i surrender? Will they die? Become your slaves?" I ask. "Or better yet, become your suit cleaners?"
"We let them live... I dont know what we do with them. As for you, you will either die, or join us. A pilot like you needs a better suit then the model from what 2 centuries ago?"
Hahaha, it was the only one our little country could afford. Full charge on boosters... now all i need to do is figure out how to beat these guys. "Well, a new suit would be nice." Without hesitation i threw the i beam into the NewGen to my left. I used a quick boost, instantaneously pushing me too 120 mph. I continued moving along using a steady jet stream, and swing around smore wasted buildings. I stopped hidden, and saw one of the destroyed NewGens on the ground, and picked up its rifle. Me only bieng fifty feet tall in my Suit, was able to hide under the taller buildings. In case you were wondering i was in Neo York. The "New York" of America's good old days. Except in the middle of the country.
No time for that, I started to move, I fired the boosters, I lifted barley six inches from the ground and moved forward faster, than the standard "walk" or "run" these suits have. Turned to my right and fired the enemy rifle. One fell, damaged legs, and i kept moving, hiding behind the buildings.
Close one, i looked my HUD and saw my entire right side was on the brink of heat damage. The leader has a HeatShell mounted shoulder Cannon... POO! I thought.
If i had my Kinetic Blade I'd be better off. Before i knew it the leader had boosted right in front of me, I ducked to avoid the incoming fist blow. I countered quickly with a Jet assisted uppercut.
I couldnt take any chances i strained my Suit's limits, and i tore the head off of the NewGen Mech Group Leader. My energy was critical, power was failing. No no no! When power levels go critical the psychic stress gets harder to handle. Everything became blurry, my head... oh god the pain. OH GOD! I begged it to stop, i tried to turn off my mech, i tried to get out, but my body became usless, i couldnt feel my own body over the pain. That is... Until I blacked out.
