I heard comments saying the mammoth tanks in Tiberium wars became impractical after patches to the game, but when I looked at their stats on gamereplays.org, compared to their stats in the initial version of the game, they have slightly more health, and their cost is cut down making one mammoth cost less than two predators (whose stats are the same as in the initial patches), where as in the early versions it was the other way around. How did they become impractical?

Watching the videos of the GDI briefings (EDIT: For Dawn), I noticed something:

In the middle of the briefing for GDI Mission 9, Cmdr. Carter, at 0:35, says what sounds like, "Here's what I need from you, Kyle:" (Emphasis mine)

Is this a Lady Mondegreen, an unintended Canon Name, or potentially both?

The following entry relating to this series is on Prison Episode:

Now, bear in mind that Prison Episode is defined as a prison-centered installment of a series not otherwise about prison; I haven't played the game, but a lot of examples were more along the lines of levels, and I wasn't sure if this is too.

Not that this would necessarily disqualify it either; in that trope's discussion page, battosaijoe claimed that a level should count if it makes up a significant enough portion of the gameplay, and kjnoren claimed to have looked through the video game section, removing the more obvious non-examples.

In any case, would you say it qualifies?

Not sure were to put this, maybe under The Woobie, in C&C 3 there are two man sniper teams, if one dies then the other responses to your clicking with a panicked voice and comments like "My partners dead!" and "Don't leave me out here!"
