It's only a month away /v/. Are you looking forward to it? Do you like the whole resistance theme? Think they'll release a DLC where we finally get to go to the AYYlien homeworld/mother ship and wreck their collective shit? What mods would you like to see? Would you a snek? Discuss it all here.

I like the resistance idea.

I hate the execution of it. Its literally just Xcom 1 with a different skin, far too few features that actually show what a resistance would be like.
>>
got a pre-order unexpectedly gifted to me over Christmas. I hope it's not shit.
>>
Hell yes I'm hype. Already made sure the weekend is free so I can just play it all day and night.

I hope they're actually telling the truth about the mod support. I seem to recall a similar thing with Civ V mods but nothing came of it for ages and on the whole it was pretty disappointing.

You must be one of the people asking 'waifu mod when?'

Just got my first MEC on LW. It's a Goliath. So far pretty underwhelming but I hear it can become god later on specially with a good psionic backing it up.

>>322724375
I actually hate the last X-com, with the whole alien pod thingy.

It takes a hold in the mechanics and you end up playing popping meta and overwatch traps.

And they double down on that in this second one by adding "stealth" (which is anohter name for popping pods) properly into the mechanics.
>>
>>322725434
I'd let her do things to me. Scientific things. Things so scientific they would be abominations in the eyes of the lord. Christ science is so fucking hot.
>>
>>322727103
Getting see which tiles will actually pop the pod eliminates any kind of "gotta walk 1 square at a time then set an overwatch trap" behavior you would have.
>>
>>322727103
Alien pod thingy?
>>
>>322727338
Well unfortunately that's only going to work for the first engagement, so after that it goes back to how it was before.
>>
>>322727451
I think he means like a group of aliens.
>>
>>322727451
The groups of ayys circlejerking in the dark before your guys find them.
>>
>>322727787
Then I just don't know. I haven't watched much of the game to call if you are wrong or not.
>>
>>322727103
Agree. It just gives them a free move.
Other tactics games have enemies in preset positions or on patrol, not spawning in waves at the edge of vision.
Feels cheap.
>>
>>322727103
Did they get rid of it this time around?
>>
>>322728465
But now they'll sometimes take a shot instead of moving! Hope you like losing someone as soon as youre discovered.

Ok, just making sure.

I wish I had a video of the last time i played Xcom. I was in their secret base, and I had hardly ran into any of them. I got to the part where you find people being experimented on and I fought a few Xrays. I had great vision, only omitting 3 squares covering a ramp. After kill the Xrays, i moved my sniper down the ramp.

Out popped 6 Mutons, and 3 of those creepy fuckers who infest people. I always move my sniper last...

Not gonna watch stuff on a game that's releasing in a month.

I like the whole terrorist theme.

Also where's the pic with

>>322725434
Remember Commander. That bitch is a traitor. She sent your ass into cryosleep and most likely got your ass probed

Return the favor
We will be watching

>>322729668
Actually in the novel she goes awol and lives in the north pole doing creepy experiments

>>322725434
Her tits look like easy peelers there. Still, black science man and ruv u long time chick probably won't hold a candle to femengele and computer games

The word you are looking for is "sexy".

Sniper > Assault > Heavy > Support

Sniper > Assault > Gunner > Rocketeer > Infantry > Medic > Engineer > Scout

>>322730009
Sniper makes the game stupidly easy, I actively have to fight with myself to not use a whole team of them when deploying.
>>
>>322730009
Scout is incredibly useful, being able to switch between Sniper and Assault if need be.

Oh, neat. I'm not the only one on /v/ born on Feb. 4.
