I once lined up 10 shots on a bar. Sank them but I missed the last two. That's x-com baby!

Ahhh, some of my best gaming memories are from the first Microprose UFO: enemy unknown (X-COM: UFO Defense for our american friends) game.


Once, during a terror mission a fire and a granade destroyed a portion of building where the damn last Sectoid was hidden, and due to the smoke and fire all my soldiers were intoxicated and/or panicked and couldn't move and were losing health. During the last available turn before their demise I decided to risk it all: with one of the soldiers I primed a grenade and set the timer for 3 roundss. Then I threw it on the same tile another one of my soldier was. That second soldier picked it up, threw it to a third one and that last one freaking threw it towards the roof of the building, and blew it up and I won.


Also, UFO caused one of my worst (but hilarious) vg experiences: I always managed to keep alive the same bunch of soldiers from the start, and I kinda grew attached to them. Their time units grew and grew, and they were a force to be reckoned with. Then, after reaching the end of the TU bar around 240points, my favorite man, Yuzo Akira, HAD HIS DAMN TU VALUE RESET TO like 5 BECAUSE AFTER THE END OF THE BAR THE FU*KIG GAME WENT OVER FROM ZERO. My most mobile and killer soldier got crippled.


I didn't want to abandon him, so from that moment on I started training him in psychic warfare. It became a sort of super savant cripple, almost never exiting the skyranger and forcing almost every damn alien spotted by his teammates to drop their weapons with mind control.


I'm sure there's something positive to learn from this story.
Like, I'm positive I had way too much free time back then.


Thanks for listening.
See ya.


edit: from UFOpaedia : "Older versions of "X-COM did not have a cap and stats could reach 255 and then wrap back to 0. This could potentially cripple an otherwise good soldier
I wish i had internet back then.

With some of the price drops over the last few weeks, I picked up Hitman 2 and Battlefield V. Actually enjoying both quite a bit. It's been forever since I have played a Hitman game, and the series has come a pretty long way from what I remember. While getting those, I also picked up a used copy of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which I am really looking forward to finally playing.

That’s a great story Nic. The same level of tension has been kept in the newest iteration, but with better graphics. I believe the old xcom didn’t allow you to savescum, which made it like the current version’s Ironman Mode. I don’t think that I have the patience for losing my best team to flanking sectoids...just yet.

Nope, it was all my initiative. The player controls every soldiers’ action (unless they’re panicked or mind controlled ), so I settled for the hot potato strategy as last resort. That damn alien on the roof deserved to go boom.

I had to google savescum, ahahah, back in the days I wasnít computer-savvy enough to do that anyway, I guess...

I played the first ďnewĒ xcom game a while ago and liked it quite a lot, it was pretty good. Gonna start playing the second one during the holidays, most likely.

Oh, did any of you guys play Silent Storm? That’s another “old” turn based startegy game with some almost gdr-esque skills’ evolution implemented and semi-realisric physics. It surprised me a lot on many levels back then. I just found it on steam, I might go for another playthrough sooner or later.

Loved my bald headed deadly female russian sniper.

Oh and Space Hulk Tactics too, loved the original space hulk. Talking about tense games.

I didn't hear about Silent Storm but maybe you could know Xenonauts, Nic, do you?
If you don't, go get it - it's basically UFO: Enemy Unknown, but with a modern twist.

I remember reading about Xenonauts back when I wanted to play (re-play) the original xcom, but then I went for the "modern" reboot.


I might give it a go when I'm done with xcom 2, me likey retro style in good games.

If you are going to play the new Xcom, and you really really should, be sure to buy it bundled with the expansion. The expansion adds a much greater depth to the game, but the campaign is pretty much the same.

Dooo it.

Heh, I've decided to have a go at the game on my laptop, which means that my progress gets saved!

Unfortunately I have to keep going to it, but good thing is I've got nothing better to do.

Turns out I've fucked up by not giving myself enough processors, so I'm waiting to get to 100,000 creativity so I can rebalance it.
