I have a question.. Do you guys thing that these beautiful creatures could swallow a 5'9 relatively skinny male whole? I wouldn't struggle so you don't have to account for any resistance when you answer.

Also do we have any information on their reproductive organs? How intelligent are they? Is the snek able to learn human language? Does it have the necessary organs to speak?

But the most important question is: Is she able to dislocate her jaw enough to let me rest in her belly, while she lies naked on the bed carresing her newly enlarged stomach after a long sensual session of sex where I start around her hips and work my way up towards her perky scaly breasts before carefully kissing her and letting her swallow me whole.

Please I need this.

In fairness that was because he ran in and activated pods early like twice.

I think Archons rockets are weak. You can always run away from it, or kill the archon instead, it's more a supression unit what make you run away from your cover, or shoot at him, instead at other units.

It kinda feels like XCOM should have lost a little later than they did, for story purposes. There should have been enough time for The Commander to show his quality, and for XCOM to prove itself as a worthy line of defense. Enough time for EXALT to reveal themselves, as well, if only so you could allude to them in the sequel.

Well, more like Anti-Alien control. They want to rule the world, not serve the aliens. They are more then ok with doing heavy gene modding to create super humans. There is evidence that EXALT was particularly fractured and suffered from in fighting though. So I imagine that EXALT split in two, those that wanted to get rid of the aliens by any means and those that believed that joining the aliens for the short term would lead them to the power they desired.

Bullshit.
EXALT became XCOM.
XCOM became ADVENT- the earth govs gave up quick so that they could stay in power. The aliens would have wanted a solid power base and a pre-established network of law enforcement & civilian control, so they'd take the weakling governments (and their soldiers) under their wing.
All of a sudden there's no need for EXALT- the earth govs have taken over their role much better than they ever could.
And I'm pretty sure the AYYs wouldn't have a use for a shadowy jewish banking consortium, so if the kikes ever got in their way the ayys would just get rid of them.
Ipso-presto, EXALT is XCOM.

I think this happen:
Xcom lost end of april, but the first EXALT mission would happen in may.
So Xcom never knew something about EXALT, beside of one single guy you must evac, but thats it.
After the war, EXALT got raided by aliens too, and the EXALT guys scattered around the world.

EXALT was always about to gain power, foremost with alien technology and Xcom make this possible. So the remaining EXALT forces join Xcom to get acess to the alien stuff. And because Xcom don't know who EXALT really is
they don't care about the Bandana.

Other theory:
EXALT fought against the aliens and people saw that. Their Bandana are now a sign of the resistance, and people who wear it never knew what EXALT really was.

I think you're trying too hard to play with phonetics. EXALT are post-humanist supremacists, they're quite literally turning themselves into a genetically altered "Master Race" to exalt themselves as the rulers of humanity.

Compare this to X-COM's goals, which are to counter and/or defeat the alien invasion using any means necessary. X-COM is a formal military organization whereas EXALT are quite clearly a private organization.

Notice that the Council of Nations are very shady in the game. They go out of their way to cover up the existence of X-COM and their activities. There's some real conspiracy theory illuminati shit going on behind the curtain, which leads me to believe that EXALT are some form of conspiracy by the global financial elite, whereas X-COM is a failsafe measure instituted by world governments.

Basically this.
They're probably people who were in EXALT and got stomped by the ayys later on and they see XCOM as the next best way to rule the world.
Because lets face it, after XCOM got betrayed by the world governments while trying to save the very same governments would XCOM do anything other than be the ruling leadership after they save the world?
XCOM isn't really secretive anymore with open operations and trying to gain human support.
Or would they really reactive the exact same governments that stabbed them in the back?
>>
>>128573853
I don't think EXALT would come to/join XCOM.

EXALT can get *hit*, but they LIVE in the shadows. They get hit, they just cut losses and retreat and start building again.

XCOM on the other hand was a government organization. If their government pulls the rug out from under them, they get hit, they don't have any fallback positions or backup resources to tap into. They get *hit* and they'll fall down like a stack of bricks.

They both get hit, XCOM would scatter to the wind or be consumed, while EXALT would take the hit and keep on trucking, picking up the pieces of XCOM once they had stable footing again (like an alien transport ship).

>>128574505
But why can Xcom soldiers wear EXALT Bandanas ? I think in the future, there is no EXALT organisation left. Only some people who fight for Xcom as mercenaries.

Xcom wasn't really shattered, they didn't get the staff, except the commander.
EXALT on the other side was the military arm of some rich people, after you beat the EXALT HQ, you didn't even know their instigators.
I think after the aliens hit EXALT, the instigators dropped EXALT and joined ADVENT.

It's just a continuity nod for crying out loud. Same as why the classic XCOM uniform is only a pre-order bonus.
>>
>>128575279
There is no EXALT organization left in the future, they folded into the generic resistance movements. You can recruit soldiers from the resistance. And those resistance troops could be former EXALT. Bam, exalt troops are part of xcom.

EXALT is not XCOM.

It's simply a case that some EXALT (which no longer exists) members joined the XCOM resistance to carry on their fight.

It's more likely that a rich EXALT instigator (benefactor) wouldn't drop the program entirely, or would come back to the program, than anyone in XCOM could wizard enough money out of their anus to keep existing (even after being ousted & turned on by those who knew EVERYTHING about them).

I see no way for XCOM to have survived TOTAL ANNIHILATION except in scattered little pockets subsisting off the grid.

EXALT would have survived so long as they had a rich benefactor. And not even XCOM learned who that was in the last game.

Xcom was about idealism, EXALT only about money and power. You cannot kill idealism, but if you don't give merc no money, they will leave.
EXALT instigators saw a new way to keep their power: Join ADVENT. For them, not much changed, only the mercs had problems and scattered.

Xcom on the other side had good personal too so they get the Avenger and try to build up a resistance, because they want free the humankind.

I'm highly skeptical- I doubt the council would have been more secretive than the jewish illuminati. And the AYYs were mind-controlling them in the game-over screen.
If any of them knew anything about anyone else, they would have been found out and their brains picked.

>>128576650
Wouldn't be surprised. But then EXALT would be deader'n'doornails too, since bald-man got MC'd

>>128576651
Remember how EXALT liked to kill themselves instead of being captured?
There was more there than just money & power.

And besides, I don't think EXALT would be completely hounded down. Meanwhile their members were probably all rich fucks, so the mercs would still get money. They'd probably shrink in size, but they'd have enough resources to keep on doing things.

If EXALT personnel weren't good enough they could just hire the veteran XCOM members they tracked down. Shit those guys would probably work for free, double-bonus.

1mil makes a bit of sense for the equipment but then you recruit troopers at 15 credits
so 15 million for a trooper is still a HUGE stretch even if they were special forces soldiers , even with all of their training.
I think Brad in Gen Kill says each Force Recon is worth about $1mil in training, and thats dive school, mountain warfare school, ranger school on top of just boot and courses you take for your MOS.
I don't think a rookie can stack up to a FR Marine, and they aren't even the best I would imagine SFOD or SEALs push around five mil, but then again rookies do come with their own gear so maybe thats figured into the expense as well on top of supplies needed like food and board.

It's always possible that the credits are actually just an abstraction representing the desire for for other organizations to carry your shit for you, so finding 10 top-notch ayy-hunting recruits who have top-level security clearance and all this shit is almost as obnoxious as sending you a Gen 5 fighter.

You need to enable advance movement in the advanced options.

>>128586784
What you've got to remember is that rookies are far more competent than they seem during gameplay. Turnbased format means we see them peeking out of cover and having time to take aim before squeezing the trigger, whereas in reality they're probably poking their heads up and barely getting a few shots off before desperately ducking back in cover to avoid the ionized jets of plasma whizzing around all over the damn place, as a real soldier would if faced with that kind of firepower. I've zero doubrs they're humanity's finest even at rookie, before they get used to killing ayys for a living

The hard part of finding troopers for XCOM is probably finding people who won't blab or abandon the project, moreso than finding people who are skilled. After all, if you were given a laser rifle worth possibly billions of dollars for the tech if spread to the right people would you just use it like a regular gun and not think about it?

They had some of the most advanced military hardware. Not quite as good as the US overall, but still leagues beyond the rest of the world. Even in the modern day they produce the most advanced missile systems on the planet making the US hardware look like a joke. Their economy, while not on par with the US, was pretty good and they had some of the best manufacturing technology on the planet. Overall I wouldn't put them above the US, but they were not at all far behind.

Someone definitely needs to make armor from Starship Troopers for XCOM.

If there's nothing else, they could at least take the source models from this gmod pack

Once again, medic abilities get shafted badly in favor of damage and this time overwatch removal.

Why would anyone take Medical, Revival protocol or restoration when their alternatives remove overwatch and utterly fucks up mechnical units? And if you don't have those, then the synergy with Field medic is gone. Guardian should also be like rapid reaction since you are highly unlikely to hit more than twice anyway

What are you talking about? She didn't die. She stayed behind to mop up the aliens while the rest of the squad went for pizza.
She didn't make it to the rendezvous location though, she must've found more aliens and gotten sidetracked.
I hope she finds her way back to the base soon, I miss her.
