    I'm not going to try and convince you to give him another go, but for my own curiosity, which one was it? I started with Best Left Cold and was nearly turned off him, and if I'd started with the...

    What if you wanted a classic sonic game but had played all the levels that exist in those games to death? It's a genre (well, a subgenre if you want to be picky) like every other one. I imagine...

    It's precarious. If it was the only setback I'd absolutely abort, but fuckup fatigue is dwindling my reserves of non-sniper soldiers and I've already had 4 countries quit the project because I played...

    eh, xcom classic campaign is doomed.

    Long story short: I got a terror mission in which as many cyberdisks were deployed as heavies I'd received in the entire campaign (2), whilst my only living...

    Nah, that's perfectly fair. If I was operating under the sort of budget I used to, I'd be more willing to have a console, because if it's that or nothing, I'll have the something. I'm only fortunate...

    Nah, because what features they could once boast (a certain ease of plug and play, split screen multiplayer, etc) have been gradually eroded in favour of them just becoming bad PCs. I've got a good...

    So, playing more xcom.

    First exalt mission. That was an experience in huge waves of spawning in an incredibly cramped map. I won, with zero losses, but most of my squad were badly injured.

    The advice is most appreciated. I think bad luck did have something to do with it, but I'm getting over the worst of that particular hurdle. I'm up to 5 squad size, nearly finished laser weapons, got...

    So, playing xcom. I have techniques for taking just about anything, with one exception. How do you kill thin men in the early game? I've got no suppression, four people in my squad, and they casually...

    I destroyed the nuclear throne. Easiest boss fight in the game really, as long as you've got plenty of ammo. Well, I retract that. The only tough boss is bigdog. Gatling slugger and heavy crossbow as...
