3.3 Tiger Escort
Angel De LaMuerte (not an ominous name whatsoever) has decided that you are not tough enough to take on the top man of the Luchadores, which should have you wondering exactly what kind of monster you’re gunning for. Never mind that by now you’ve been beaten, shot, stabbed, blown up, crushed, dropped out of an airplane, flown through said airplane, and who knows what else. He thinks you need to know how to overcome true fear to stand a chance. Conveniently enough, he has a pet tiger for you to drive around town for a little while.
Tigers are much better as signs you can shoot in an episode of “Professor Genki’s Super Ethical Reality Climax,” but apparently this is going to help finally make a gangster out of you.
Similar to Escort missions that you can run for your other homie, Zimos, driving Angel’s tiger around requires you to drive the “client”—in this case the tiger—around to please it, which fills your courage meter. You must drive fast so that the animal rage bar does not begin to fill up.
If you slow down, stop, or hit other vehicles, the rage bar fills. Animal rights activist vans will be chasing you around, similar to the Escort mission TV news vans, and being in their vicinity causes the animal rage bar to fill up even faster than usual.
Complicating all this is the fact that you have a flipping tiger in the car next to you. Being a tiger, he will paw at you at random, causing you to swerve violently to one side or the other. At high speeds, this can become a real tragedy real fast. It also means that no street, no matter how straight and wide it seems, is truly safe. Traffic is suddenly a much greater threat than before, and one random swipe of the cat can send you crashing into cars, buildings, and other obstacles. If animal rights vans are nearby when this happens, this can max out the rage bar incredibly fast.
If the rage bar does fill, you’re not out of the game yet, but things become more interesting. The tiger will go tiger all over you as long as the bar is full, making driving a real pain as you keep swerving all over the place. You’ll have to drift to calm the animal down, and in general, you’ll want to drift if you must take a turn, because maintaining your speed keeps the tiger less angry...
