** Plus, he seems to have been taken by surprise, possibly while he was recording his last message.

** IRISH spelled it Shauni in their reports and that became the official spelling everyone else used. Jade just said it on the spot and likely didn't have any preference in how it's spelled and the DomZ Priest isn't likely to even use a written language should it ever need to spell it. Really isn't any more peculiar then Pey'j's name always being spelled that way as opposed to being spelled Page.

** The Police -- some of whom may be Looters, or may just have their cars stolen by the Looters -- automatically deduct their fine from your account when you shoot civilians enough. Hackers aside, that may just be something the cars can do, which is why they're useful in either scenario.

* Why didn't anyone from IRIS recognize Pey'j's voice? Yes, yes, I know, PlotInducedStupidity, but given that his voice is distinctive enough to be instantly recognizable to the ''player'' when he comes in over the radio, coupled with his unique accent, one would think that ''someone'' there would notice that the short guy who just walked in with their new recruit sounded ''an awful lot'' like their boss. Also, his code name is "Wild Boar." Come on.

** I Noticed that when we get the "flashes", we see the statue, as apposed to the Domz priest who was actually talking. I had assumed that that meant that jade was related to it somehow. This, combined with the fact that Jade was somehow imbued with a power that used to belong to the DomZ, and that the statue still belonged to the DomZ, made me think that the statue was the previous embodiment of Shauni. Which would make it a massive soulless alien, or in other words a "GIANT ALIEN ZOMBIE!", which is an awesome way to think of it.

* This troper actually interpreted the ending as ThePlan on the [=DomZ=]' part. All this about Jade/Shani having the power to bring people back to life is a lie: think about it, the only person who tells you about it is the freshly-resurrected Pey'J, and he has some [=DomZ=] growth on him in the ending. [=DomZ=] have exhibited some mind-control ability in the game, so it's not too far out to expect there to be some less obvious form of such an infestation. The other people you save are probably infested as well, and the whole Alpha Section plan was probably that stupid deliberately so someone could defeat them, lull Hillys into a false sense of peace and create and implant a good number of undercover [=DomZ=] agents. Is there some extra info I'm missing?

** Its revealed that the Alpha Sections need the life force of the people that they capture to survive, and they need the green gas to survive. I had thought of the green stuff as a sort of orange juice concentrate, but with souls instead of oranges.

For all we know, they would be perfectly justified to interpret it as "Shani".

*** Cylinders, pistons and a crankshaft are for converting fuel via combustion (or steam/other gas directly) into reciprocating and then rotary motion. Typically this rotary motion is used directly as power, or goes to a generator which makes... yep, electrical power. If you already have sufficient power available (it is able to form ''sustained arcs'', so one can assume it's enough power), then these ''particular'' mechanical parts serve no useful function. Other parts like gearboxes would be handy but these items? Nope.
