Guys should I watch Beagle's entire stream or should I just watch videos?
Also, what's the cheapest card that can play this game? I have an old 9600GT but it needs a Pixel Shader 5.0 videocard
repostan for anon
from memory excuse me if any of this is wrong
SQ. = Squadsight
CPL = Long Watch (Squadsight Overwatch) or Return Fire (Shoot Revolver at first enemy who attacks you each turn)
SGT = Deadeye (ACTIVE ABILITY: Trade a fraction of your aim for a large damage boost on a single shot) or Lightning Hands (ACTIVE ABILITY: Shoot your pistol for free once)
LT = Death from Above (Killing an enemy with your sniper rifle while higher than them only costs one action instead of both, allowing you to move or reload or hunker or shoot your pistol or do ANYTHING after that kill) or Quickdraw (Shooting your pistol as your first action no longer ends your turn)
CPT = Killzone (ACTIVE ABILITY: Giant aiming cone which you place over a section of the map, you now covering fire reaction shot against EVERY enemy in that cone who does anything as long as you can see them. Squadsight included even if you didnt' take Long Watch) or Faceoff (ACTIVE ABILITY: Shoot once at every single enemy you can see with your pistol. EVERY ONE. EVEN IF THERE'S TWENTY OF THEM)
MAJ = Steady Hands (+10 Aim and +10 Crit if you didn't move last turn) or Take Aim (+20 Aim to your next turn every time you Hunker Down)
COL = Serial (ACTIVE ABILITY: Every kill you make while active refunds your actions, allowing you to kill again and again. Does not require enemy to be exposed like ITZ did. Combo with Superior Autoloader and E-Mags to rek 18 aliens in one turn) or Fan Fire (ACTIVE ABILITY: Shoot an enemy three times with your pistol in one action)
So if there's a way to share your custom soldier designs with people, how will we as a group be able to share them? Codes or do we have to be friends on Steam in order to do so? Or is it all stored into a server at Firaxis and we get them at random?
Pretty sure they said it's just generic file sharing, though I assume there's some standardized way through Steam workshop or whatever. They said the soldier pool is just a file and each soldier is like 2kb so it's hardly intensive
Learn about flank overwatching from old video
It doesn't freeze the flank alien when you try it in EW
Impossible remains Impossible
Is there any information about Multiplayer yet?
snek is for killing not loving!
killing with my cock
Bagel hinted leaderboards and weekly challenges.
Also they said that co-op should be entirely possible if people can provide servers for it.
So, teaming up with 5 friends to each play one squad member soon.
Is Van doorn a meme? He seems pretty unremarkable.
Guess the vowel sounds are the same eh.
A short while after the edited videos everybody (including him) got the ability to recruit Gen. Doom 'don't let me have all the fun' Van Doorne.
He retained his unique voiced dialogue & would shit-talk the enemies (and you).
Interesting, to recruit him you just give a soldier his name?
If you make a character in the character pool but name him after someone like Doorn (which I think is what Beagle did?)
Would that character become the hero unit?
How else would you be able to have special characters without them turning into cheating little shits?
Tell him to report to council member Kane for his punishment.
Is he stupid? You aren't explording the galaxy, a single tyrannical invasion force of inhuman monsters have taken over the Earth and are raping humanity of their genetic goodness for their own benefit.
Explain to him, like a child, that not only are all the aliens he's seeing part of an invasion fleet, but they are under direct cybernetic & psychic mind-control with zero chance of breaking free or even, most likely, having a single dissident thought.
Also call him a bleeding heart faggot, and no he can't 'save them', the filthy alien sympathizer.
The art style is atrocious and it basically does nothing better than OpenXCOM but a slightly more intuitive interface. No psionics, all the aliens are blatant clones from UFO Defense but feel utterly generic compared to UFO-D's more memorable designs (even for the most generic shit like Sectoids). It's the type of game where you periodically just stop and wonder why you're playing it instead of something else (OpenXCOM in this case).
>faggot slave soldiers
Seems like Sectoids are the unluckiest species of the galaxy. They get enslaved by the Zudjari, then they get enslaved again by the ethereals
Tell him if he wanted to play a space opera he should had bought Mass Effect.
Why would you ever recruit anyone unless you wanted to fuck them
They're more like organic puppets, I'm not even sure they can thin.
A PUPPET CANNOT DEFY THE PUPPETMASTER
The "original" Outsiders
They were the first the Ethereals encountered and they only showed a little bit of psionic potential and were shit at everything else so they get the sharp end of the stick.
In the Bureau they theorize that perhaps the Sectoids were a manufactured slave species, possibly sold to the other races given how their basic biological functions work only just.
Vortessence was a hell of a lot more powerful than the wimpy-mind rape shit the sectoids try to use.
>>128775790 It looks like a rotted vagina got stretched over their face. what the hell.
>Not some polygon energy beings from another dimension
Reminder that this is what could have been if the purists fucked off.
Since the beginning. All your bitching and moaning and clamping your ears shut wasn't going to stop it. It was going to be canon no matter what you wanted.
And the ending makes a reference to XCOM existing all the way to EW when they start playing the
Yes. With their slave collars they're even cuter
There's actually a really sad scene in the Bureau where a Sectoid tries to rebel. He gets MC'd to shoot himself in the head by his Outsider overlord.
When you research Meld in EW Vahlen notes a discovery of redacted files from the 1960s.
Silly anon. Snakes don't have fur.
I completed the campaign on classic today and on the ending score where it compares your statistics to the world I had roughly the same across everything except in scientists,engineers and credits. Those were listed in the hundred thousands, how the fuck could the average be 100k scientists/engineers and 330k credits?
I want a mod to let soldiers punch aliens. How hard would it be to create new animations and put them in game?
Hard mode: How hard would it be to make animations that aren't complete shit and make them work?
I know that feel anon, but personally
I wish I was a snek, and I could gently wrap myself a nice warm XCOM operative yelling at me and calling me names. I'd just sit there hugging him and rubbing my nose against his.
Recruit Jews into SS and send them to conq- "liberate" British Palestine.
Making friends with a mostly cloned, genetically and cybernetically mutilated and brainwashed alien crowd isn't, however.
Super practical actually. Take Aim is amazing regardless of sharpshooter type. It's 20 aim after a hunker down.
>Run Gunslinger up near a pod
>Lightning-Hands Free Pistol shot
>Quick Draw Fire Pistol
>All of this with +20 aim
It's actually an amazing ability to amplifies snipers to be the point I can't imagine why you would take the other perk. It works just as well with Sniper Sharpshooters because 20 aim is 20 aim.
Alright, let's keep going.
Got a mission to rescue an important scientist.
And then the Gremlin's true purpose became apparent
Fuck, the only cover here are cars.
And cars tend to explode. I think.
I haven't been following them LPs and shit so closely, so I gotta ask - how are pistols doing in 2? I get the impression that only sharpshooters kept them, and even then they're revolvers for some reason.
Well....2K doesn't hold back when it comes to shock factor.
Terror mission gone bad, it seems.
>I get the impression that only sharpshooters kept them, and even then they're revolvers for some reason.
That is true. They seem to be fairly powerful if you spec your sharpshooter right.
Specialist is just an upgraded Support which was the most boring but practical class in the game. At least now it has it's own thing and is a lot more interesting and playstyles can vary. It really only looks boring next to the other classes which look amazing.
It also doesn't help that psi-ops are also Super-Supports with a variety of other amazing powers. But still Specialists are amazing at what they do.
Instead of Mind Meld this shithead gives allies shielding like the Advent Shieldbearer
Eh, I'm not too upset. Pistols were only really useful when knocking down the last few HP for capturing ayys or for covops missions.
To say nothing of the classics, where they were all absolutely useless with the sole exception of the Megapol plasma gun from Apoc.
Fucking drones negating my cover
Pistols are OP. The only long range perk I'll take over pistol is the 'squadsight overwatch' perk over the 'return fire' perk because who the fuck lets their sniper get shot at? The killzone perk looks comparable at least, although I wanted to smack the idiot who didn't put a E-mag on his sniper that had it. Unlimited shots for overwatch, and you only have 3 rounds max?
I hope XCOM 2 has missions like these where you blow the shit out of major defenses so the Resistance can bumrush Advent cities.
The pistol is OP as fuck
>Can shoot for free
>Can shoot back at any target that shoots you
>Can shoot every target in visible range once (equip incendiary/viper rounds for maximum bullshit)
What should I make this rookie. I want to make him a sniper initially because of the aim, but that defense and health would be wasted on him.
No indications that you can. It might be a story unlock, but I doubt we'll get the 'torture for faster research' thing we had in EU. Which is a shame, dominating aliens so utterly by dragging back prisoners to a black site was so cool.
Guess we'll just have to have fun with all the other cool stuff now.
>ANARCHY’S CHILDREN is a rebellion themed DLC featuring more dramatic soldier customizations.
>ALIEN HUNTERS introduces new soldier customizations and gameplay themed around
>SHEN’S LAST GIFT introduces a new soldier class with unique upgradeable weapons, armor and customization features, and
holy shit firaxis sure loves their customization
which is a good thing
The license being owned by 2K is one thing, Firaxis connecting its game's story to The Bureau's is quite another. And canon only means something when it affects how new material is created.
>Some random shmuck freely able to interact with alien-designed technology that whose equivalents on Earth haven't even been conceived yet, let alone designed
these things trigger my autism
One thing the Bureau does poorly is that it doesn't introduce things on why you can do certain skills, only that the scientists are hard at work "giving you stuff" as you level up
They're publishers, dude. What's on the box is more important to them than what's in the game. Whereas for the player, that's the only thing that's important. Nobody at 2K gives a fuck about whether Firaxis tie The Bureau into XCOM 2, and that's the only thing about canonicity that can affect you in any way.
Moments like this make me so psyched for X2, this guy is going in my character pool as hardluck
there's still gameplay shit. i just noticed that all the packs all have new dressup stuff
>ALIEN HUNTERS introduces new soldier customizations and gameplay themed around XCOM as an elite alien hunting unit. Face off against “Ruler” aliens with new, more powerful weapons and armor. Experience a new dramatic mission & confrontation. (To be released in Summer 2016)
>SHEN’S LAST GIFT introduces a new soldier class with unique upgradeable weapons, armor and customization features, and a new narrative-driven mission and map. (To be released in Summer 2016)
Plus, think of the intimidation factor. Gas masks (depending on the model) tend to make people look very inhuman
probably something to do with not being able to read facial expression/ muffled voice tone
What the fuck
I wish XCOM had some sort of 'morality' system in it.
Different paths to take, on one road you embrace alien technology, becoming closer to the aliens in order to beat them and then in the other you stick with human technology, further advancing it with your own research.
I just want to get cool toys without having to look like a faggot in a power rangers costume
As far as the primitive aspect of our brain is concerned once something stops having a face it stops being a fellow human. Or something to that effect.
>How you like your shave
>Just kill me
Got one fucker out of cover and the rest standing around somewhere.
Swapped out my engie for a recon. That guy is sniper bait.
The main plot isn't really interesting, but they really put a lot of work into the aesthetic and small details. Namely the little things that go into the lore and headcanon.
Gameplay is alright. Still better than CoD.
We need to start the XCOM project IRL
I don't know why I can Lift enemies out of cover but I won't question what the eggheads in the lab cooked up.
Probably came with that thing that's on my arm.
FUCKING COLLEGE FOOTBALL TIME NOW IS IT?
Headcanon is typically used to described a thing a small group or an individual believe in, that while is never explicitly mentioned, but can be deduced from other elements of the story. Canon is just another word for official lore.
In short canon=official fiction(VIGILO CONFIDO), headcanon=personalized fanfiction(snek fuckers)
Support builds in Long War ended up stealing the show and holding the line better than my other soldiers because they were overwatch monsters.
I feel like XCOM 2 takes those lessons to heart because the GTS upgrade for them literally is to unleash the beast
Specialists have the highest hacking skills though, and are the only ones able to remote hack objects. Hacking objects can be done infinitely during any mission, and not only gives tactical mission rewards but can also improve your strategic game with resources and such.
Specialists finally give us the ability to directly influence the strategic layer while in the tactical game.
This guy seems suspicious
I remember an interview saying they planned on expanding more on homosexuality in the 1960s but that part of the plot got written out. I think Dr. Weir was supposed to be a gay scientist or something
Ukrainian stalker cuties?
New type of armor.
holy fuck why couldnt they just do this by default and include it in the base game? each player gets one soldier, 6 total players, have to defend against waves of enemies and players take turns like in civ 5 or something.
Fucking nice gun
I did much the same in vanilla and completely overlooked the value of covering fire and sentinel. The two abilities were so far apart from one another and overshadowed by Sprint for Days and Heal for More.
Long War's rearrangement of those abilities just changed my world when my support decided to kill a berzerker with ballistic weapons by himself.
It's only the second fucking mission and they're tossing a fucking Sectopod my way. Great.
Complete with a little ayy in there
>You will never blow away ADVENT soldiers with TOZ 34s
>You will never command a group of Stalkers against a group of ADVENT laying siege to the Zone
You don't need weapons when you have the powers of the mind.
That's just camo.
>Tfw Zudjari weapons would have made for great T3 EXALT guns
A few grenades and almost 1 agent bleeding out
I'm aware the dome needs to be domier.
See, this is why humanity is rebelling. Because of shit like this.
I like these new backpacks
Additional headshot damage.
that also sounds really good. total war used to have this "drop in" campaign option in which you could search for human players to play as the ai during a battle, but it was a toggleable option so you could chose to take part in that or not. they could pretty much do it exactly like that and just have some multiplayer option to play to search for any games in progress, join them and play as the aliens. it would be great, now im making myself sad cause i know it probably won't ever happen.
This was a part of his livestream, without editing the ini. It was boring as hell, because all his missions get a perfect flawless rating, expect one, where a rookie got wounded.
Compared with other streams, he got no advanced enemies in may and some HP of the enemies are too low. Additional, he edited the clear-up-times, so he got this resources and the buildings faster than it should.
There are no more Kasrkin I think. They are all Tempestus Scions now.
You mean flashlights.
So plot so far: The aliens are terraforming the planet. Presumably to convert Earth into something they're more familiar with.
Prior to the invasion they've seeded several drinking water sources with a bug/nanobot that allows them to control the organism that ingested it, humans included. These humans can then be "activated" to do their bidding, and after they've done whatever the invaders wanted them to do, they enter a deactivated state where they relive the last several minutes of their active state.
For humans who ingested the bug weren't activated, they develop flu-like symptoms until they begin to repeat the last few minutes of their behavior indefinitely until they waste away or starve to death
Fucking capitalist pigs withdrew the second month, taking canada with the on the third. And wihtout my piggybanks I'm kinda strapped for cash. What should one be manufacturing for profit in FMP? Laser Cannons cost elirium and the other things i found are motion scanners (11k/) and ayy laser rifles (25k/).
Lost my Marine to a fucking turret. Couldn't get close enough to grenade it.
This thing seems to be a terraforming agent.
It does convey a sense of fear when a giant alien bears down on you. Fortunately whether to panic or die is up to the player.
And I'm fucking out of ammo
Either he's an infiltrator who switched sides or a sleepwalker who overcame the nanobots' programming.
Must be that Greek love.
A very early one. Seems like later on they separated into Mechtoids and the purely robotic Sectopods.
You know, something that's as tough as nails and is able to negate my cover with a rapid fire laser cannon through height is kind of mean.
Good thing it's inaccurate as shit.
SEE YOU IN HELL.
Yeah there was one general who tried to resist, but ultimately ended up killing everyone else in the top brass.
There's no need to perform autopsies. Vivisection is more of the Bureau's thing.
I think Advent took a lesson from the Zudjari...with the mind control chips.
20 DAYS TO GO
>watch youtuber play EW
>has no fucking satelites on
>detects an UFO
>sends a firestorm with avalanche missiles
>firestorms get fucked up
>complains about the firestorms being shit
>instead of sending another interceptor to the UFO he just scans
how can people be so bad while playing in NORMAL difficulty?
This mission sounds interesting.
It seems like gamers nowadays trend towards stupid
>Youtuber gets hung up on Tutorial mission.
>Complains that tutorial messages doesn't make sense
>wastes 10 minutes before figuring out he has to move soldier forward to specific spot because he selected the tutorial
Originally thought he was just trolling but he kept fucking up over and over...
This website exists for a reason.
Honestly though chances are no, XCOM 2's lowest requirements are about the same as EU/EW's recommended/high end requirements.
The game don't explain many things well, foremost not how to play the strategy layer well.
I watched many Xcom 2 videos too and it's almost the same there too. I bet many people lose their first game, because they didn't raid ADVENT facilities, because they didn't build the communication uplinks to expand an reach the facilities in time.
Instead they will scan every supply drop they see, and waste tons of time.
m8, this cheap as fuck machine will play XCOM 2. Surely you can afford this.
>Over-stretching so your income can barely support you, let alone hobbies to keep you from being miserable
My advice, get a room mate or move back in with your parents if you're at a youngish age. You should not be spread so thin that one single disaster payment financially cripples you.
I saw some EW streams too and sadly people often don't read what they researched. For example, they see the picture of a laserweapon and it's header and after research they instantly try to build it. They miss so many stuff or forget them seconds later, it's hilarious.
But Xcom is all about a learning, so it's ok.
Is moving back in with parents a really big deal? I come from a non-Western culture so it always perplexes me when people say moving back in with their parents is the end of the world for them, even if they have a good relationship with their parents.
In America there's a big stigma about it because baby boomers were able to move out at 16 with no issues thanks to the economy.
Here in the UK nobody gives a fuck, people are pretty understanding that the housing issue is beyond help at this point. The government keeps building expensive as fuck four bedroom houses and not enough cheap flats.
So instead of trying to get it now, just save a little bit for later. If you can't afford a machine build one. S'what I did. Granted half the parts in mine are for free cause of my part time job at a recycling center
>mfw someone threw away an nvidia GeForce GTX Titan
This site is your PC building friend
Every tier is built around compatibility as well as performance. So if you buy every part in e.g. modest, they will all go together.
Would you use her like an oversized fleshlight as she begged for mercy in tears?
>watch psi op gameplay
>jake solomon is way more fun to listen to than I ever thought a game developer would be
he genuinely made me laugh a few times
She has tits from the human DNA mixing so to me she can produce tears, first from the rape and then from the shameful pleasure of being fucked raw by a human.
Snakes have a cloaca, you're already technically performing sodomy as it's a shared hole.
A Light Plasma Pistol was made available to me.
And I lost my hat after getting thrown back by an explosion. Carter is wearing a comfy sweater after that little debacle.
They die in one hit but are hard to aim at.
Yeah you can pick it back up if you search for it after clearing out your enemies.
Assuming Vipers work like terrestrial snakes, the females are larger and deadlier than the males.
In snake mating rituals, a single female can spend hours being gangbanged by dozens of males
Can a GT610 run XCOM 2? I'm a poorfag so I'm thiking about getting this card next month.
These are my specs, I think I'll be able to run the game at 25-30 fps, idk. I just want to play it
I would taste her fear written on her face like a snake tastes the air with their tongue. She would struggle against her bonds as I claim her like they once claimed our world and out freedom.
>check to see if my computer can run xcom 2
>it says it can't
>check to see if it can run xcom 1
>it says it can't
>just finished my first ironman run yesterday
Remember to be tender and loving so she eventually develops stockholm syndrome.
What memery is this?
Punching blobs is fun.
Psi isn't a separate class in EW.
I like how your agents will make remarks on how the mission progresses
The Shredder gun in Xcom 2 is awesome.
Like a canister shot for tanks.
This is fucking satisfying. Bradford would be proud.
Dang. I don't wanna wait a month after the release to upgrade.
Plenty of ayys killed
Does your GPU actually consistently overheat or something? The 650 is significantly better than the 460, it should be able to run TW Rome II on medium without much trouble - I find it hard to believe it can't run XCOM2 on minimum.
your GPU is closer to the Recommended than the Minimum for X2. don't trust CYRI at all, it vastly underestimates specs and tells almost everybody to upgrade if they're not running the game all maxed at 120 FPS
Dude, those "Can I run it?" sites are always bullshit, for one reason
The system requirments for games are pure bullshit
They always suggest shit like i-7 cpu's for example, when that doesn't even effect fucking performance
Can you run it?
Yes, of course you fucking can
Can you run it at 60 fps?
You find out, look up benchmarks for games and see for yourself
But from what I heard XCOM 2 does have some hefty slow down when lot's of destruction is going on
But considering that it uses the literal same engine as EU and EW, it shouldn't be hard to assume you will be able to run it at a reasonable setting, if you were able to do that in EU
Fuck those sites, fuck recommended system specs
Next operation, time to grab an artifact
While it's heavily advised to have an A-team around, the game also suggests you level everyone in the roster because there are dispatch missions that you cannot go on. Some can only be completed by experienced agents.
I am in 91st percentile but most games say minimum what the fuck. Since when did i7's fucking become recommended? Here I thought I'd buy a freesync monitor and SSD but nope looks like I have to upgrade.
Recommended specs afaik literally mean 'you can run this shit on maximum at 120fps' or some bullshit.
I mean look at Fallout4's recommended specs:
>8 gigs of RAM for some inane reason
>a fucking 780
I ran it on high at 50 fps with a 760M.
Stop listening to the fucking sites, i7s don't help game performance.
What's your gfx card? Literally anything but entry-level cards and extremely olde shit will run it perfectly fine
I sometimes wonder if she would be able to hear you when you're whispering sweet nothings to her, or if she would like to be pet.
Considering she's a snake and all that.
Like I appreciate you sharing and hope you have fun with Bureau as you go through it.
But man it looks awful and the only thing I'm taking away from it is being able to consistently spell "bureau" from the number of times i avoid submitting a post to say how awful it seems.
>tfw Integrated Graphics
Do you guys think I'll be fine? If not, it's no big deal because I have access to a better computer sometimes.
i7 is a trap for people who are just getting into making a pc for gaming
I can't count how many people bought an i7 for games and than realized it does literaly fucking nothing
A i5-4440 for example can handle any, and I do mean any graphics card you can get without bottlenecking it
It's cheap too
I mean you could even go weaker than that and be good
Some games specify i7 on the steam reco's is what I mean, scary as fuck. I run everything on high-ultra with an i5 and r9 290, I'm hoping this machine will last at least 3 more years, then I'll switch to Nvidia masterrace.
No, you legitimately need to upgrade if you want to play most games at a passable framerate (or at all)
You don't need to, a top-end i7-tier CPU is only useful if you're actually doing something seriously CPU intensive - not games.
I've never seen a marked difference in performance between their flagships, flagship cards are literally always at least a full year ahead of any game that could possibly use it.
Steam doesn't know shit.
Absolutely not, integrated graphics exists to light up to screen and nothing else.
I don't mind personally. I'm never going to play bureau, so this is my opportunity to "play it" while reading /xcg/. Its a good time to get it out of the way before x2 comes out as well.
Just wondering what the general consensus is.
Anyway, that's a very odd looking backpack.
Alright, thanks guys
Fuckin' hate drones. They flank and heal their allies. Fuck's sake.
Futbol's got me flanked
which take? playing TR if not obvious.
heat would be nice because I don't have anyone else with it yet but thats not really an assaults job and RF would be nice for anything that isn't robotic.
Shredded the armor with two grenades, but uh...this don't look so good
Yeah, and while the Muton was busy falcon punching (with 1 hit KO AoE attacks) me around there was a new Advanced Drone that lifted my sniper out of cover, effectively incapacitating him
I like how the game acknowledges that this was a hard mission
I should take a stab at coloring this one day.
Not sure if PTSD or pissed
Woops wrong pic.
I like how Big Sky 0.5 is a sassy black man
These poor fucks never saw me coming
I wonder what Jake thinks of the Bureau.
That's some pretty sweet armor.
I like the little details on the oscillator on my Venbrace.
Somebody should port these assets to XCOM 2 as a mod.
It is nice, but why not plate the front midriff and center torso area?
Is it the outsider's equivalent of female armor? :^)
Can't capture lids, though you're welcome to try.
It's XCOM related, don't listen to the jerkoffs who would rather go back to talking about raping snakes.
It might be considerate if you could put on a tripcode so people could filter you if they don't want to see the content, though.
Uh, you don't capture the extraterrestrial horror bugs, you purge them from existence with righteous anger.
Also everything on site recon kinda explodes so you get no loot anyway.
They have a shield bar and a health bar, kind of like Mass Effect.
So the aliens have started the nuke launch sequence, and now we need to stop it somehow.
You're contributing with XCOM senpai, doing gods work. How is Bureau anyway? Worth playing?
Have some OC PsyDoorn
What's your squad composition and how many shotguns do you have? Also, mobility is pretty low in vanilla IIRC. I don't know that it's always worth farming them for XP, you may just want to sprint for the exit.
Whenever a muton appears, toss all the frags.
Pretend you're playing Mass Effect 3 with an XCOM theme.
Not big on TPS formula, thought ME3 gameplay sucked ass. Shame, I love the art direction and the story seems really interesting, though I had the EPIC TWEEST at the end spoiled by a dickhead buddy.
Why the fuck do soldiers not wear anything besides sweaters?
The inherent support for units that take up multiple tiles of space and bust through cover with movement (new Sectopods), combined with this kinda stuff already being abilities, I imagine will make it pretty easy for modders to add in tanks or other vehicle/robotic units.
