    Author's Notes: Sorry for the long delay, I had to think of how the next battle would go and how it should turn out. Also, remember when I said I was getting another writer to write an alternate ending? Well, I'm having Blogger, Marco Polo, write it with me. I hope you enjoy what's next in this entry in The Invaders.

    The thought came to me after stumbling across some 4K screenshots of Tom Clancy's The Division. Admittedly, the pictures are very nice, but... that beauty also sparks some disappointment. When the first images from The Division appeared, I couldn't... More
