This is literally the only game that keeps me hyped for next year.
yeah it does look good
only played xcom one a few months ago. shame i put it off for so long. great game and the second should be even better especially with it being pconly and shit
fuck the long war mod
fucking husbando creator right there
I was considering installing The Long War, but I'm not even good enough to finish XCOM:EW...
>Full mod support
>Playing through the game with the Power Rangers as my team
This game will be GOTY
fuck long war
fair enough if someones gonna tell me to fuck off since they're good at the game but hell, what a shitty mod
i cant be arsed for the grind
i just a couple of those giant robots for EW. might do a one save playthrough soon
>mfw they attack your base
I'm actually at that point in the game, again, when they attack my base.
I'm leaking from every hole.
It's my fourth playthrough, I manage to pass this mission most of the time, even though the game gives you shit items and shit soldiers, but in the end, I always have too many countries that fuck off the XCOM program..
think i had every country with me when i completed it, i did save scum like a cunt though.
i lost EVERYONE on that mission, was a struggle
is it game over if you actually loose that missiom?
>mod that literally makes everything unfair and harder
Vanilla XCOM is great, but too easy. The problem with Long War is that it doesn't just make the game harder, it makes the game so hard that you'll get completely destroyed if you don't play it the way the mod creator plays it.
Playing on Classic Ironman with a bunch of Second Wave options and a mod which increases the size and number of alien squads is about perfect IMO.
I'm still bummed its not coming out this month. Going to be hard wait until February.
I hope these extra couple months pay off. Firaxis rarely pushes release dates back so I'll be optimistic that they really felt it was necessary to make a solid product.
The worst part is the air game.
>jet gets knicked
>one week out service
Now I know its more realistic. A lot of shit goes into properly repairing jets and that shit can take months.
But when you have two of them and theres a God damn fucking UFO every day or two? Nah nigga. Can't do shit. It's annoying as fuck.
>it makes the game so hard that you'll get completely destroyed if you don't play it the way the mod creator plays it.
It doesn't make the game too hard. It just plays like a different game from Vanilla. Earlier version had some versions that were badly balanced at times, but I don't think what's currently out is that bad.
Destroying this illusion will be my pleasure
Shitposters can't possibly have this strange idea that people care what they think and they can actually influence the opinions of others, can they?
They aren't that stupid, right?

>Makes every fucking mission a two hour slog through 30 fucking aliens, each with 20-80 health

It removes everything fun about the new X-Com (without fixing any of the major issues) to try and simulate the original X-Com, and it does so poorly. So you just wind up with the shittiest of all worlds.
The real question is:
can the snekladies eat people?
No, just pull your soldiers from cover (with their tongue) and constrict them, and they also have the Thin Men's poison spit.
I'm sure some deviant will make a mod for it though.
It took me like 4 games to get used to the normal game but once I did everything got way too easy.
I tried LW and holy fuck even the lowest difficulty is destroying my anus. I probably fucked up because now I have five health Thin Men and Floaters but still need to use rookies because I let too many soldiers die. I'm used to starting over early but it's a fucking pain when the first month now takes 4 times as long to complete.
/tg/ Drawfag named Weaver. Created Ruby Quest, the first and the only good quest ever made. Also did those kobold drawing you see in Dorf fort threads.
>Full mod support
/tg/ had better get off their fat asses and make a 40k mod.
Yeah, there are points in long war that really testify why Fraxis went with simplicity and fun over technically complex and meticulous.
At some points in LW if really seems like grinding like an RPG.
Long War early game is objectively 100x better than vanilla
more tools, more choices, better gameplay
the problem is the end game becomes a grind and a slog
Of course if you suck at the game you'll bitch at LW for the wrong reasons, as expected
Made my dick rock hard, immediately recognized it as Cage's art.
>not liking fat sneks
>Oh its a fat snake viper. Wait...
>mfw she's not fat, she's full on a rookie.
>you will never be a weakly wriggling fat bulge in a sexy snake lady's belly
Tell me more. I was surprised you can't even find videos of people fucking fish. There are hundreds of videos/animated pictures of jizzing on action figures, but going to the grocery store and buying a fish and fucking it is apparently some weird thing. People these days, I swear.
The question everyone is asking themselves:
Snaketits > Sharktits?
XCOM2 looks fantastic. Which is why I am worried, and you should be too.
Hope is a first step on the road to disappointment.
Just make it a unique soldier, a snek who defects for some reason, seeing as they seem to be sentient and maybe capable of higher thought.
Otherwise, yeah, brainwashed snek ladies.
You know, what I want to know is what happened in the last 20 or so years that made Punished Bradford think swords were an acceptable thing for his soldiers.
>puss is positioned in relation to the human half
>bonus negative points if it has an ass
They all need to take an example from >>315537000
But seriously though, just imagine Earth being invaded by these sexy snek ladies. How could humanity hope to defend itself against such an enemy? All of mankind's defenders would be shooting wildly all over the place with one hand on their rifle and the other on their dicks.
Exactly how goddamn poor does a man have to to find themselves unable to afford three games that came out the best part of a decade ago? Hell, I picked up Winter Assault for a fiver when it was still the newest one out.
>tfw they're way hotter than snek ladies
As if one is more enjoyable than the other.
Dragontits is clearly the superior answer.
>snakemen look like japanese businessmen
>too creepy for human conquest & integration
>replace with sexy titsnakes
>too jetpack-zombie for human conquest and integration
>replace with shiny, bare-chested cyborgs with artificially sculpted abs
The aliens (and Firaxis) are cunning indeed.
>tfw cryssalids are even scarier in XCOM 2
>spidery landmines that make more spiders
>never finished XCOM EU because I'm a dirty pleb who couldn't make it past a certain point even on multiple attemps
>played the hell out of it though
>new XCOM out in Febuary
Should I do it /v/? or should I wait for XCOM2 and not finish that either?
>Now they've become even more poisonous. They can't just poison you with the Chryssalid Kiss as they did with Enemy Unknown. Every time they strike you, the tips of their claws have a poison on them. You can receive a chryssalid poison effect with any attack. If you happen to die while that chryssalid poison attack is active, then the soldier that died, or the civilian, can then enter this gestation period, and they will become a cocoon. If that cocoon does not get destroyed by XCOM within a to-be-determined amount of turns, then three chryssalids can pop out.
>tfw not sure if top tech n xcom can handle that
Fuck Earth let the Aliens have it.
>HEY, REMEMBER THE ENTIRE GAME ?
>REMEMBER THOSE TIMES YOU PAID FOR UPGRADED WEAPONS ?
>REMEMBER THOSE ADVANCED SCOPES ?

>REMEMBER THOSE WEAPONS YOU HAD TO SEARCH ?
>WELL, FUCK YOU, DEFEND YOUR BASE, HERE COMES 4 CYBERDISKS, 2 BERSERKERS, 2 MECTOIDS, AND A SHIT TON OF OTHER SHIT
>HEY, THAT'S GOOD GAME DESIGN RIGHT ? XDDD GOOD LUCK
no fucking armor. only unranked soldiers. shit assault rifles. I'm fucking dead, it fucked my entire game up, because I'm playing in ironman, and they keep missing 75% shots.
fuck this game
I had them
three of them (including the drone) have been replaced by unranked soldiers, and NONE of them have upgraded weapons or armor. Nothing to fight with. I only do 3 damage to berserkers.
You get like 6 entirely new rookies and then 6 of your normal soldiers by the end of it no matter what. Don't try and do anything fancy with the rookies and you should be able to rely on your vets.
Has alien recruitment been confirmed or denied yet?
Then you've just got to keep them equipped for the month after you assault their base. I'll admit it's kind of bullshit for a brand new player but if you know it's coming you have no excuse.
naw son, see, the game doesn't just unequip soldiers
you probably sent in a team of rookies for a small mission prior to the base defense and hit the very convenient 'unequip all' button which made your top troops naked.
They are churning out more and more terrifying enemies.
XCOM needs to double time this time.
> Can burrow. Doesn't matter if concrete.
> Turns dead allies into cocoons that spawn three of them.
At least they are now more fragile.
Simply AYY LMAO version of Clayface.
>They get MECs
>They get sneks
>they get zombie-raising sectoid pillar-men
>They get rocket firing pillar men no legs.
>They get big daddies that spit acid
Well what the fee fi fo fuck do we get to fight back against them? I hope to god we'll be able to reverse engineer MECs or something at least.
I swear to god if the last class is a battle-dog I am going to set myself on fire in front of Solomon asking why he's forsaken the human race to support the ayys.
That's the endgame to XCOM 2: Just building the real, interplanetary Avenger as an ark to collect as many humans as you can to just GTFO to another planet, rebuild, and hopefully strike back in a few centuries.
No, but they did say sneks are 'pure evil' so I dunno if that counts. That 'too bad' could have been a *hint hint wink wink* kind of way.
>I swear to god if the last class is a battle-dog I am going to set myself on fire in front of Solomon asking why he's forsaken the human race to support the ayys.
I look forward to sipping a drink while watching this.
>neo XCCOM hype threads
>FO4 hype threads
Why do I even come here anymore?
This is something out of Brom's archives.
XCOM supposedly has the element of surpise in the fights because of the concealment mechanic so you can pick your fights and get the first shots in before the enemy gets to react to your presence. I'd like to see what kind of weapons and devices XCOM gets to field.
I really really hope firaxis spent these extra months re-recording bradfords lines with the original voice actor
Yeah, that's a neat feature but I do hope at some point we're able to graduate a little beyond bottom of the barrel insurgency. I'm not expecting us to be able to go toe to toe completely with the ayys, but I hope by mid to late game we've got guys in decent armor like advent has or maybe MECs.
I'm just partial to the MECs, they were so damn cool.
Hell, I'd do it if I wasn't so busy playing the game. I expect to beat it within 3 days without sleep, then modding work begins. After sleeping, of course. Coding is infuriating enough with adequate sleep.
One day, there will be a XCOM game where old enemies will become allies in order to fight an enemy far worse than the Ethereals.
At least XCOM is more interesting than Bethesda's take on Fallout.
Not much actually.
>The devs are making it PC exclusive(because surprise, surprise, Strategy games sell poorly on consoles),
>The New enemy units designs up until now look really great.
>Full mod support, so 40K mods are a matter of when, not if.
>Interesting take on the alien invasion setting, where youa re the ones doing the guerrilla warfare againist the alien controlled government.
Porn requests are the closest thing to shitposting material you'll have.
Not the best of taste.
>qt scarf snakes won't ever be real
well, that's that
i like that the game is completely moddable.
stargate total conversion mod will happen
calling it now
I remember personally getting to the level with the ufo crash (Or if it had just landed on Earth) and met with some new enemy that just fucked me over while playing Ironmode. Haven't touched it since.
I play it Fire Emblem style where I never save mid-mission and I'll only restart if I really fuck up. Is that how ironman works with this game or does it constantly overwrite your saves in the middle of battles too?
Why are GTA III and XCOM thread so chill ?
>modded rooms in which you can see female soldiers taking showers
More like rooms where those who insult Commander shower in gasoline!
Dod will never return.
Fan made imagining of what the snake men could have looked like, this was before xcom2.
I prefer the snaketits. It makes sense considering that the aliens have taken over earth and redesigned their troops to be more humanlike so we're more likely to fall in line. Hell, 80% of this thread wants to fuck the snaketits so I think they have the right idea.
>Aliens get fucking Stands
Alright how the fuck are we supposed to fight them then?
No wonder the cannon ending was us getting our shit pushed in.
Do you think we can turn our own soldiers into Stands?
Jesus fucking Christ
Well, look at it this way, if you had to fight either:
A: Some small green thing that looked ugly and hastily strapped to a jetpack.
B: Something that looks like a fucking celestial being
which would you choose?
All the redesigns are explained as the aliens wanting humans to be cowed into submissiveness. It's a lot easier to do that when all the aliens look vaguely humanized, makes the empathy work for them.
It also makes them a lot more interesting and engaging to fight. Compare the aliens in Apocalypse with their headcrabs and hairy horsecock guns, which were so alien as to be totally uninteresting.
>Alright how the fuck are we supposed to fight them then?
my dick's hard, man.
>I get to personalize my units even more
>Which means I'm going to like my veterans even more
>What if one of them dies
This is going to hurt.
Why does a snake need to have breasts?
because snakes don't have breasts, now answer why these do?
>you get to make your own soldiers
>from the scars to the tattoos, to the personality
>you get to see them get hit by a cryssalid
>you have to kill them before it spawns three more
I don't know if I can.
The other ayys need more
Looks like an exoframe. Sweet!
>no game about fucking true alien abominations
>only well known aliens are from that same named franchise
>mass effect "aliens" are just human chicks dyed in purple
>Alright how the fuck are we supposed to fight them then?
The answer is simple, Commander. We utilize the Allied Chronosphere technology to go back 20 years, to before the alien victory. And supplying our past forces with our enhanced technologies, we annihilate the enemy.
>tfw my fetish is leaking into mainstream media
>tfw XCOM 2 is about resistance
>tfw Earth surrendered 20 years before the game
I'm feeling something, and I like it.
>It's leaking rage out of those nodes in its body
Jesus Chris how fucking horrifying.
I know those feels
I have hopes for http://www.furaffinity.net/user/meandraco/
>THIS ENTIRE THREAD
I thought you could change viewing permissions in a menu somewhere, but I can't find it.
>that feel when you got weeb faggots comparing these two
Well, yeah, go nuts http://www.furaffinity.net/user/benezia
I just stuck to the meandraco tag and never left, because yeah, the one time I ventured out it was all furry crap. Even the 'alien' tag was pretty overrun. There's also xeno threads on /aco/ (used to be on /d/) that may have more of what you're looking for.
I saw some good stuff posted in an aliens thread, but idk who the artist was. I just like my alien babes to actually LOOK like aliens, that is, nothing recognizable by human standards, besides some nice tits and ass of course.
>Keeping it PC only
Fucking fantastic. No limits on the console to hold them back, so we wont get a watered down version of what we were expecting.
I want a mod where my female soldiers get raped
>playing on ironman
>whole squad dies except sniper
>group of chryssalid chase her down
>she panics and gets caught
>can't help but get a boner with the death animation
So have they confirmed or de-confirmed pay2win shit in this game?
I can see shit like build times on the base or healing time being shortened or sped up by paying actual fucking money
Please tell me they aren't doing this. Please
>So have they confirmed or de-confirmed pay2win shit in this game?
what has happened to make you think that they would?
full mod support would be kind of confirming that it wouldn't happen
Is there a way to own a pet snake like this that won't bite my hand off? (not literally)
I want one as a pet, but fuck getting bit, man. I mean technically dogs bite as well but I've never once been bit by a pet dog in my entire life, they just don't do that shit even if they could
