Mine would be S-K; it's the most magically powerful one, and it has Leonardo for computer science R&D.

Wuxing is more magically powerful, i'd say. as for having Leonardo, i think that his location depends entirely on Lofwyr's pooping habits.

I have to say S-K, mostly for historic significance. After all, some of the corps that were ultimately merged into S-K belonged to the most influental corporations in europe during the 19th to the 21st century. Which makes it totally believable to me why it still is a big fish in the pond.

Not in germany, believe me. The german translation of System Failure has some bonus pages that describe the impact of Crash 2.0 at the AGS. Seems that SK is trying to get more control over the whole messed up country and transform it into a single state (much easier to control then). Finally! :)

Voted Ares, I'm old school.

It seems that the megacorps I like best are the ones you people like best. S-K, Evo, Ares...

I'm a fan of NeoNET/Novatech. Villiers is teh Bomb. I always played him like Xanatos from gargoyles; addicted to overcomplicated schemes and no real morals, but a sense of doing the honorable thing, or at least the most dramatic. The kind of guy who would spend tens of millions to summon some bad ass creatures only to throw them away after 1 run.

After that, It's Ares, because Damien Knight reminds me of Lex Luthor.

I'm with Pimp, especailly for the way you summed it up. I've like Evo lately too, but Villiers is the man.

Ares. If Ares isn't your favorite megacorp, you're a dirty commie pinko and need to be shot. In the head. With an Ares Predator.

Or an Ares Alpha.

Or an Ares Redline.

So many choices, how will you decide?

You don't. Studies show that patriotism is directly related to numbers of shots in the head received from an Ares brand firearm, and you can never be too patriotic.

Maybe Ares should have been the one with the rogue AI…

Hmmm... I don't like them consistently being "good." Oooh, look at me, I killed the insect spirits for free, I'm consistently generous and honorable in my dealings with runners, I have the most overexposed CEO in the sourcebooks. I'm so pretty.

I've gotta go with Aztechnology. They made my first sound card. None of the others have ever done anything for me.

I remember something "evil" about Ares in relation with the insect spirits, but I can't for the life of me recall what that is.

Oh yeah, Strain III. It killed off every Awakened critter around Chicago.

They're also using insect shamans to invest their spirits in guard dogs so that they're intelligent and super-powerful. Then again, they're also using controlled spirits to astral gateway into The Hive so they can kill queen and mother spirits for the rest of eternity, so the whole project is morally ambiguous.
