Plot Edit

In Gorso, masked men break into a house and kidnap a woman, taking her away in a truck. Three days later, the man in the brown jacket is relaxing by a pool in France when he is delivered a ransom note for his mother-in-law. He flies to the island of Gorsika and gets a taxi, without noticing mafioso transporting weapons around him. In a bar, he meets with a woman who supplies him with weapons.

Outside, the man and woman enter a mech and approach Mafioso Industries Inc. They shoot the mounted guns on the building but a laser is fired that disables their mech. The man shoots a hole in the building and enters, firing at guards inside. He gets into a melee with the leader, who is revealed to be an alien when defeated. The man in brown goes to free his mother-in-law.

Later in Gorso, the man is awarded a medal at a ceremony. The woman who supplied him with weapons kisses him which offends the woman he had been with in France, who runs up to kick the man.[1]
