    Do you see them adding this sort of thing to the game with DLC perhaps? Or does it feel self contained?

    DLC could be done but I doubt this would be the area they'd touch.

    Want. It's a lovely piece of design.

    I recall in the original XCOM the alien forces would escalate in strength at least partially in response to your own technical development. Like, when you research Heavy Plasma the game shifts the sort of aliens you'll encounter in missions to the tougher sort. Is it possible this sort of thing is happening here? Did you have a sense that the weaker enemy types started drying up about when you started fielding the later weapons?

    I'm wondering if I paused weapon research when I get kitted out with lasers whether the alien midgame enemies would hang around for longer.

    That does seem to be the case in Normal at least (And in Classic I suppose as I got laser much earlier during my Classic failure) at the moment I'm a few months further and have the skeleton armour (For my sniper) and "Personal" armour (Avoiding spoilers as much as I can) with laser weapons, and just started facing some early-mid aliens.

    Can't really say for sure with Classic difficulty as I failed miserably at it (Despite being an Xcom vet).

    The only thing I'm unsure about so far is that panic levels seem to rise a bit *too* dramatically at times (For those who've played, I've just beat a Sectoid Commander for the first time, whether they can verify it slows down after this point?)

    Hard to say really because I didn't upgrade all my stuff at the same time, the Snipers always had the best weapon available for them but my main Assault and Heavy guys kept their starting stuff for a while. Seemed to me that the stronger aliens were introduced as you advanced the plot, but I could be wrong.

    Get satellite coverage fast and everywhere. It really should be you priority at the start of the game.

    Also I don't know where you're at in the plot, but some story mission reduce panic on the whole planet by a nice amount (wish I had known that beforehand since I ignored one of these missions for a long time).

    I'm now regretting ignoring the story quests for like 3 months...

    To be fair, I didn't so much ignore it, as have terrible luck. It's the second of the 'capure this specimen alive' quests and every time I tried to capture the alien in question the AI would basically commit suicide, running in front of a overwatched unit. One time I tried to use the 'Flush Out' Assault ability, to make the Arc shot easier, and even that ended up killing the bloody thing. The enemy in question actually only appears in UFO quests, too, which didn't help matters, a couple of times I'd forgotten to take the Arc pistol with me and and another time my designated Arc carrier got killed.

    The upshot is, I've completely lost Asia except for Australia, which I'm probably going to lose shortly, but managed to keep almost everywhere else calm. Considering I'm playing on Normal I doubt this will be too much of a problem as I've got all the Plasma Weapons, and decent armours.

    PM me your info and I'll send you that this week.

    I only 66% love Sherlock, Episode 2 is always so weak compared to the others in both seasons.

    I caved and bought XCOM. Already bought Dishonored this week, but ...well I'm greedy.
    Good thing I have Dishonored, too, because Steam won't have XCOM ready to play for another six hours. Too bad it didn't append to the demo.

    edit- and now I realize how truly greedy I am- impatient to wait six hours when most RPSers are waiting until Friday.

    I was too impatient to wait till Friday, so I ignored digital waters with my VPN ship.

    At least it's fully out tomorrow so that other UK RPS'ers can join the fun :)

    No it isnt. FLCL, or "furi kuri" or "fooly cooly". wonderful anime series made by the Neon Genesis Evangelion people, almost immediately after they made NGE, as a sortof parody on it and anime in general. only six episodes, and only 2 manga, its wonderful. Its the reason I got my Vespa 50s.

    What's the motto on that badge? It's Latin for 'I watch, I trust'?

    A bug when using suppression led to this unit firing colourful balloons from his rifle.

    Open-faced sandwiches are upon you whether you would risk it or not.
