It's great to see that Everything Epic Games listens to the community and changed the enemies stretch goal from an add-on to an included stretch goal. Awesome!

Doing this has required them to remove and change up the stretch goals they previously had. I'm hoping that at some point they add back in the flashback missions that were on the original stretch goals. Though we never had the details of those missions I hope they would be based on Rambo's Special Forces unit code named Baker Team which consisted of eight men and involved some missions they undertook in Vietnam. I'd also hope there is some way the game captures the feeling of getting attached to the people in your squad like I hear the game Ambush does. Here is a list of the people in Rambo's Special Forces unit.

Delmore Barry
Joseph "Joey" Danforth
Manuel "Loco" Ortega
Paul Messner
Delbert Krackhauer
Giuseppe Colletta
Ralph Jorgenson

I think it would be cool if we could get player boards and miniatures for them as well through stretch goals.

That's exactly what they were!!!!

However, we had to take all of those extra stretch goals down because they no longer were in the proper order because we moved the miniatures out of there to be in the pledge levels!

We're going to update those graphics again over the course of today

Thanks for your support!

Where's Bronson & Westmore?

"That's me, that's Danforth and Westmore, Bronson, Ortega, and there's Delmare right in the back. We had to put him in the back because he's so big... if we didn't he'd have taken up the whole picture. Look how big he is.

Delmare's Gone."

Argh! I grabbed the names from a list on Wikipedia. Yours is quoted from the movie. Maybe the names on Wikipedia came from the book? I've no idea.I like yours better since I think most people will identity with the movie and the license EEG has is for the movie.

Awesome idea!

If they wanted to mix worlds and add in a Col. Braddock character that looks as close as possible to Chuck Norris without infringing on copyright... that would be cool as well.

Here's from the movie as well for the other team members:

"Covey Leader to identify Baker Team:

Rambo, Messner, Ortega, Coletta, Jurgensen, Danforth Berry, Krakauer confirm!

This is Colonel Trautman.

Talk to me, Johnny."

The scene from the tent. That lists all eight of them. It's funny how both of those moments are so vividly in my head. Great movie.
