Lazyness is one issue. I do have a wired X-Box controller that works with my computer, but my computer is about 8 years old and showing it's age. Besides, I can play my games on the big screen. ~shrugs~ When I get a new computer, then I will be getting this and a few others for it and modding the heck out of them.
~grins~ I prefer the computer too, but my wrists hurt too much if I am on the computer for oo long while the console controller does not hurt them nearly as much.
For that mission, I kept most of my men in one area and kept the bugs contained. I then sent my support and assault up to push the button. They covered each other and then RAN away once the button was pushed. My sniper, other support, and MEC kept them away and then I staggered everyone as one ran and the other fired. I got out with two turn to spare.
Another approach is to have two or three squad sight snipers going at it while the rest just get close.
XCOM - Enemy Within is a major expansion. XCOM can be played without it, but if you have the spare cash, then I would pick up the XCOM - Enemy Within expansion. Having played the vanilla game and Enemy Within, all I can say is that it was worth buying the enemy Within expansion.
Note - If you buy enemy Within, you are REBUYING the original XCOM - Enemy Unkown game and you get the Slingshot DLC as well as the Enemy Within expansion.

I would also suggest giving your other soldiers the older equipment that is just laying around gathering dust. I also plan on building a few extra Skeleton suits and Laser Rifles and handing them out. Skeleton suits and Laser Rifles are rather cheap and are useful for keeping the recruits alive that much longer.

Lynora, you might want to check out Mazinger Z. However, I would look for the Japanese or South American version of it since the American version got... ~tries to think of a polite term~ butchered and shortened. I loved watching it as a kid and I even learned Spanish to understand it (I was in South America at the time). Granted, the last time I watched it was over 30 years ago, and yet I still remember enjoying it.
Besides, you do not care about anyone political view point Scott. They either agree with you or they are wrong. Well, guess what! I disagree with you.
Point one - I voted for Obama. So what? I disliked him less than the other guy.
Point two - I DO dislike drugs! WHY? I have seen too many addicts and too much abuse of them.
Point three - The constitution alows gun ownership FOR A REASON!!! Yes, there are some people who should never get near a gun, but the majority of the gun owners are saner than you and I are. They know how dangerous the guns are and take precautions to keep them safe.
Point four - I am a city person who also loves the country. There are areas int his country where you NEED a gun in order to survive. And heaven forbid if you go into some of the state parks where the criminals have taken control of them to grow their drugs.
Point five - "You and yours" "City folk"? You must not have traveled much. Be careful of being so judgemental, because your ignorance starts to show.
Besides, do you REALLY think that it would be that hard for someone to get a gun just because they are banned? Are you that naive? If I wanted a gun, I could get it through criminal channels. On one hand, I do agree that there should be some form of gun control. On the other hand, there is a reason why gun ownership is in the constitution, the basis for the whole United States.

Hey Scott. My home HAS been broken into twice and several people around here have been broken into too. So I should move JUST because I live in an area that has crime? WHERE should I move to, Mr. "I am always right and you are wrong"? What should I do when my wife pulls up and they are robbing my house, Mr. "My political views are the only way"? MOVE? The are very few places in this world that are truely crime free. And as for the police, they can only do so much. Yes, this incident is a tragedy, but a person who wants to kill will do so, gun or no gun.
~grins~ Hey, at least you are not a snarky smart ass who puts his foot in his mouth. Now who could that be that does that? ~whistles innocently and slowly backs away fromt he thread~
