Not sure it's even possible at this point without major work.

UI and gameplay was built around precision only a mouse can give. They'd have to gut it and kill the difficulty to get it on consoles.

>>
>>323581595

There is no demanding market for it.

Xcom threads are hot this week, thank God.
Three questions :
1. How to fight the Berserkers
2. Are SHIVs any good
3. Should I consider giving one of my Assaults an assault rifle, and if so, is the left or right tree better?

>>323590252
They literally revealed almost all the aliens. There's probably only 1-2 aliens left to be revealed.

It's not your fault anon.
>>
>>323590618

1. Shoot them until they die.
2. Yes, but only if they have at least self-repair
3. The left one is saver, but always choose Rapid Fire. Rifles and Shotgun have their uses.

Yes but only if you upgrade them. They are vastly underrated and can save your ass after a squad wipe on ironman mode

Assault rifle are safer but shotgun are stronger. However you need to be very close to be accurate with the shotgun so it's a high risk, high reward thing

A ressource in EW.
If you don't know what it is I'm guessing you're playing EU so there's no MEC class or gene mod.

XCOM 2 is really not going to be any harder than EU/EW unless that is you were so shit at it that you just slowly crept up and overwatch in nearly every situation and don't know how to make actual decisions for yourself. If you're too reliant on soldier promotions than you will also be hurt by xcom 2.
>>
>>323593904
The second wave setting makes ALL flanking shots criticals, and the beauty of shivs is you don't give a shit about cover so its flanking all day. Hover shivs literally rape everything in sight.

Can see trouble against shit like sectopods though, the DPS without crits just can't take it down fast enough.

Despite the description it "only" raised the chance to make a crit to 100% (from 50%) meaning you could still not crit against enemies with crit resistance skills.

So in short, buy hover SHIVs and give one of my Assaults a assault rifle, cool? Cool.

Other stupid questions : outside of satellite coverage and abductions, there's no way of reducing panic, right? Arr Engineers are more important that scientists, do I stick armor on literally everyone, why am I always so broke( $573 a month, not counting corpse sales), is Chitin armor worth shit, is the Plasma Rifle and pistol the only one that drops from stunned enemies, Lasers vs plasma?
>>

>>
>>323595538

>>323596325
heres a hint
the country that gets panic no matter what you do is where the alien base is
>>
>>323596460
I did the alium base already, that worldwide panic reduction saved my ass. I'm guessing there's more than one.
>>
>>323595538
It only lies on normal and below because it uses a PRNG there. On Classic and Impossible it uses a straight RNG.
>>
>>323596450
I played that 3ds one.

>>323596687

>not playing both

>>
>>323596859
Is it better to play on a higher difficulty than Normal then? I'm not great at them anyway and I'm concerned I'll just fuck that up anyway.

>>323596325
>buy hover SHIVs
High ranking soldier will usually outperform them. Buy them if you get squad wiped

>Arr Engineers are more important that scientists
Yes.

>do I stick armor on literally everyone
If you can afford it.

>is Chitin armor worth shit
No

>is the Plasma Rifle and pistol the only one that drops from stunned enemies
There's a total of 4 plasma weapon that you can drop.

>Lasers vs plasma
Laser is tier 2, plasma is tier 3 tech.
If you're playing on normal or below you can try to ignore laser tech and rush plasma tech for a big technological advantage. It can also be done on classic with some luck.
>>
>>323596325
Council missions grant panic reduction, shooting down UFOs and raiding them I think grants panic reduction, assaulting the alien base gives one-time GLOBAL panic reduction so it's good to use tactically.
Engineers let you build higher tier facilites and shit earlier, good for rushing to satellite nexuses (2 nexus + 2 relays in a square = global coverage potential).
If you don't put armor on people, they WILL get one-shot.
Until you get good satellite coverage and the All In nation bonus, being broke most of the time is normal.
Mutons will start carrying actual plasma rifles for you to loot later on (and heavy floaters), so try to get some off them instead of making them youself cause they're not cheap. Chitin armor is ok as a placeholder item, mainly when you get the double item slot upgrade from the Foundry. I usually slap a scope on everything because +10 aim is always, always useful.
>>
>>323597324
What are the plasma weapons? I know there's the pistol and rifle, and the ones sectoids use.
Also should I buy the Will upgrade? Seems rather not useful.
>>
>>323597994
will helps you against mind control
>>
>>323597994

Will upgrade is for psionics later. Higher will = more chances to get a psionic. I hate that mechanic, because your soldiers, who served the whole time under your command have low will at the end, and you must train new people who get more will into psionics... god thanks this want be anymore the case in Xcom:2
>>
>>323597994
Light plasma, pistol, rifle and heavy.
There's other plasma weapons but they are not droppable, you must research and buy them.

>>323597994
There are 5 man-portable plasma weapons. Pistol, light plasma rifle (grants +10 aim, good for leveling shitty aim rookies), plasma rifle, heavy plasma (heavies only), plasma sniper (you have to build this one since no aliens carry one, sniper only). There is also an endgame shotgun, the alloy cannon, which is only equippable by the assault, and it does something like 20 damage on a crit.

The estimated damage 'preview' shown on the target before making a shot doesn't take weakness/resistance into account, I think, but it should do an extra 50% to cyberdisks/sectopods, 100% if you're not playing Enemy Within.

friendly reminder that Chrysalids can now burrow into ground and move through concrete

no adjacency bonus, full character and weapon customization that can be imported into all playthroughs, overwatch shots now fire in order instead of everyone at once, there is no air fighting with interceptors, you are now hidden at the start of the missions and can use stealth to ambush enemies before they see you, the sniper starts with oversight, pistols are majorly buffed and you can literally make Ocelot out of a sniper with the Gunslinger class, you can now hack shit with your support, there are a shitton of new aliens, the maps are randomly generated every time so you'll never play the same map again, Loot system: fallen enemies and allies will yield loot that can be picked up and brought back to base, backpack for loot, limited carrying capacity per soldier, Mission Objectives to complete missions - killing all enemies is optional, entirely destructible environments, floors and ceilings included, there are now Fire, Acid and Explosive barrels, Skyranger extraction zone can be called in anywhere on the map, so long as there is sufficient space to do so, weapons can now be upgraded with various mods and parts looted from enemies and these weapons can be freely moved between soldiers, the weapons confirmed so far are Ballistic, Magnetic, Laser and Plasma, Gender and Nationality can be freely customized, you can now Re-talent soldiers so no more 10 snipers 0 assault situations, veteran soldiers will receive unique customization options. Snek.

SCOPE on all, a couple of grenades for when you absolutely need splash or guaranteed damage, and a medpack on a heal-specialized support.

I prefer snapshot. I can never seem to get Squadsight to work for me. Can never find a good position that actually lets me hit anything. Especially on missions inside alien bases. Id rather be able to have my sniper be able to shoot on the fly.

Not created equally and hidden potential are great, breaks the monotomy of soldier advancement nicely. You get some total screwballs with shit stats that you either sacrifice or dismiss, and then you get some fucking supermen that you value more than anything.

There's not that much risk in preordering the sequel since they've released a lot of free-form footage already, which looks solid even if it's from a by now month or two old build.
You know exactly what you're getting, so the only reason you would hold off is worry that it's going to break on day one. Which is pretty unlikely considering they said they were done with the game in september yet pushed it back to february for polish.

you know, I played command and conquer red alert on the playstation. Didn't even have an anologue stick. they just had the cursor be controlled by the d-pad. Not only was it still fun, because red alert is amazing, the game sold well enough to bring a playstation-only expansion, retaliation (which was a combination of 2 pc expansions, but had exclusive content like FMV briefings and the soylent green mode)

So it's perfectly possible to make a game that doesn't have consilites, play well enough, and sell, but for some reason developers just assume the worst of console gamers.

Sure, aliens must get defeated, for humanities sake. Anything what stay in our way must killed, or we all die. But if we won and the etherals are gone, we must get back our humanity. If non-etherals surrender, they should not get killed, beside if they made massive war crimes. A single snek who was on guard duty in the slums and talk to people isn't really something dangerous for humanity after war.

All right, let's sum up. This thread we explored the failure of the council. How our Quislings brought our world to the brink of chaos. We talked about XCOM - how they took control and established the stability that has lasted since. You know these facts, but have I taught you anything of value this thread?

Naked force has resolved more conflicts throughout history than any other factor. The contrary opinion, that violence doesn't solve anything, is wishful thinking at its worst. People who forget that always die.

I'm sure some people will throw a temper tantrum over this, but I played (and sorta, kinda, a little bit) The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.
At the end of that game, humanity enslaves the Etherals pawns and use them to rebuild everything they destroyed before letting them go.
Say what you will about that game, it had a few cool ideas. Like capturing an alien and getting to talk to it. I really thought you might get him on your team. I was wrong. But still.
>>
>>323617231
Humans got screwed by superior alien forces lead by etherals. No wonder that they lost.
Xcom must use naked force, because it's the only way to save humanity. But after this, naked force isn't useful because the etherals, the head of the aliens, are dead (i hope). All the alien military falls apart, and will surrender.
People have other problems (build up the world again) than do mass genocide on former brainwased enslaved aliens.

>>323617681
Thats a good idea how humans should act.
>>
>>323617681
Well there are multiple endings depending on who you choose to possess but yeah it was cool.

Im still sad we will never see the original game that was announced that was first person where you go into places and investigate and then make new tech from alien stuff you find. That seemed cool.

So Long War seems fun in theory, but it's kinda just a slog. Just finished up the first month, if I'm not enjoying it should I just uninstall or keep on going through it?
>>
>>323620113
wait until you get 8+ missions in a week in May, including 2 terror missions back to back

That does not sound fun. Enemy Within was fun enough for me anyways, I think I'll just stick with it unmodded.

So do I need to play XCOM before I can play this?

Heh, XCOM.

You don't *have* to, as plot-wise, this game is essentially what happens if you played the first game, and lost before you even got a chance to see a fraction of it.

But, you ideally should anyway, as the gameplay and mechanics are pretty much the same in most respects. It'd be a good way to warm up for the upcoming sequel, and there's bound to be a decent number of throwbacks to Enemy Unknown/Enemy Within.
>>
>>323621092
Use SHIVs. They're ridiculously overpowered in the early and midgame to the point where they make up for the XP loss.
>>
>>323620803
Technically the first game is not canon as far as we can tell.

But you should still try it out, its definitely a good time.
>>
>>323620803

Not really, if you ever want to play it though I'd do it now. X2 seems like it's going to be a straight up upgrade on every count over EU so I'd imagine it'd be hard to go back after playing an X2 campaign
>>
>>323621575
Well there's that and someone's bound to make a X-com 94 full conversion mod at some point.

Good luck getting a sequel
>>
>>323620803
XCOM: Enemy Unknown was an entirely independent reboot. XCOM 2 isn't a sequel to that, it's just a spinoff in an alternate timeline. Think of it like a separate campaign in the same setting.

You'll be fine to skip XCOM, but of course that game is pretty good and is a more appropriate picture of the military defending the planet from scary aliums. The atmosphere will certainly be different, if nothing else, so if you'd like to play the government instead of the rebels you should play the first one.

If you don't care, feel free to skip. If you think you might play XCOM after XCOM2 just to play more of the same, I'd consider playing it first just because it looks like spectacle creep is going to make the second one a bit more flashy and it will be harder to enjoy the first afterwards.
>>
>>323606179
yo
>>
>>323621714

I fucking hope so, there was a team trying to do that with the original but they had to give up. I was saying it's a straight upgrade over EU though, not original XCOM, there's still plenty of legitimate reasons why you'd want to play that over new Xcom even though I prefer the new take on it.
>>
>>323622092
XCOM 2 isn't a spin off to EU. Winning is not canon
The developer said that XCOM fucking lost like 1/3 though the game.
>>
>>323578839

Are those graphics considered top end?

I mean I have shit taste but I think those are the best graphics I've ever seen.
>>
>>323579521
They don't appear to have any advantages over the last iteration besides walking on high ground or whatever. The cyber discs had a ton of movement unlike sect pods and they never used their melee aoe. Any armor or health increase is balanced by you doing more damage probably.
>>
>>323622263
I'm not talking about canon, I'm attempting to explain how much it really matters that you know what happened in the first game. My point is that they are not very closely related.

super easy. It triggered too late for me the first time. My squad was OP as fuck and I breezed trough it. Only on a different playtrough did I learn that it was supposed to be hard.

>>323622669

Yeah that was nice too.
After i heard that Xcom 2 will have a base defense again, imaged how it would like to fight in the avenger.
But sldly it turns out that your squad sit on the ramp outside of it.

What are the odds of there being an expansion where you can play as the Ayys and have to deal with XCOM terrorism in a mode that harkens back to "normal" XCOM gameplay?

I'm excited for the new way to play, don't get me wrong, but I'd love to play the other side of this reversal too.

If the pattern continues, XCOM 2's units are just replacements of the previous game's. There are so many units already, I don't even care if it has none of the old ones.
