It is before.  Close your eyes and remember a time when the world was merely on the brink of hell, instead of deep within its depths.  Cyberspace has not fallen, and the chaos that is to come is casually foretold by the existing maelstrom which infects the crippled beast known as humanity.  Life is cheap.  Death is a constant companion, gorging itself on the weak and the strong alike.  If you're not a killer, you're a victim.  Self-preservation is the order of the day, and selling humanity's soul to the machine is legal, and profitable.  The cost is high, but many are willing to pay.  And yet, even in this long age of pain, there are still a few heroes yet to be born.

The future is yet to come.  Let history reveal its dark legacy.
