Been playing XCOM all weekend (I played the old one 20 minutes and gave up). I launch it, play and when I m done it's like 4 hours later...
I love it but by god, I hate Chryssalids. The first time I encountered them, I managed to kill them before they close in on my troops, so I didn't think much of them. The second time, on a terror mission, I found out that not only they are lethal if they come close, but they zombify people. Who then have a huge amount of health and destroy your troops. Who then become zombies, who then become Chryssalids... You can imagine how that went. I hate those things. I lost 2 teams to them but I keep going.
Apart from that things were going ok, I gave priority to researching armour but at some point I reached a wall and I realised that I had to research laser weapons if I didn't want all my troops to get decimated.
Also Dishonoured managed to shock me. I was playing the mission to assassinate Lady Boyle and talking to people at the party to get clues. Then [spoiler] I met this guy who said he loved her and would take her away never to be seen again, if I just agree not to kill her. So I thought ok, why not, no need for anyone to die. I find her, lure her to the basement and tranq her. I put her on his boat and as he's leaving he gives me this speech, thanking me and basically admitting that it's a one-sided thing and that 'she will learn to love me'. [end spoiler]I was shocked. I guess it's better than the alternative. Or not?
