XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Postby Senel » Thu Nov 15, 2012 12:31 am

So, Monday night I was first in line at the Call of Doody Blops event just so I could pick up a copy of XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Might sound like a lame thing to be doing but the girl I've been seeing went with me. So wasn't too bad. :p

Anyway I fucking love this game. Like, absbdjkbvbkjsdvjsd it's fantastic. From the getgo I wanted to get a soldier through the story without dying then the one I was focusing on actually did get killed so I was like FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU, then I realized that I had another who had been injured for like seventeen weeks. So now he's like my super awesome veteran Sniper who never dies and pulls off crazy critical hits whenever I need him. Guess that's why the game nicknamed him "Ice".

Any stories you guys have?

Do a classic difficulty with Ironman mode playthrough, its sssssooooo much fun!

Ran a sniper from the start of the game, all the way till the end. Squad View is a must! It extends your range by so much and once you get Double Tap, you can pretty much kill anything.

Except for Sectopods, fuck Sectopods

I have a save half-way through an ironman classic, but got distracted and am now supposed to spend more time on study.

It's a great game. Better than it has the right to be. I never really expected we get a quality, faithful X-Com remake in this day and age. I hope this isn't the last turnbased tactical game we see.

I like killing stuff point blank with Assault dudes. It's fun.

I was excited to find that this game did very well; I know someone who did voice acting in the game that I'm subscribed to on YouTube. He was the bald guy in the HD trailer, and he has the video featuring his voice acting on his account, jon3pnt0.

And for a reboot, the game's doing very good.
