BUY X-Com Enemy Within. ~thinks~ Do you have an X-Box 360 or a Playstation 3?
I have, for no other reason than 'just because', been re-reading On a Pale Horse, by Piers Anthony. It's book one of the Incarnations of Immortality series. 'Tis an excellent and highly entertaining series, set in an alternative Earth where Sir Isaac Newton helped advance first the Laws of Physics, then the Laws of Magic. So it's a world of both science and magic, where certain aspects of existence (such as Death & Time) are offices that can be held.
I love that series and most of Piers's other work.
I too am sorry to hear about your loss, Ebon.
~POOF~ Try Bleu Cheese salad dressing with fries. ~POOF~
~grins~ The Tree Frogs, the lizard, and the fish are my wife's pets. They are in her office, so I do not hear them most of the time.
As for the cats, I think they think of ME as their pet. Or slave.

Thanks. I own the CW movie and the first three seasons. I will pick up seasons 4 - 6 of CW sooner or later.

No. It is not good. It is great. Go and watch it. Netflix has both the movie and the series.
~grins~ Ha ha ha!
I do not think it is possible to increase your IQ. OTOH, the brain is like any "muscle" in your body. It gets stronger with practice. Reading helps. So do puzzles and other games like that. HOWEVER, I also believe there are different kind of smarts. Each part of your brain needs a different type of input to stimulate that part. Also, do not neglect the benifit of interaction with other people. Another thing that helps is to get outside and experience the world. Keep a dictionary and a thesaurus nearby. You can't learn something if you do not understand what the words mean.
~grins~ A lot of people think that I am very smart. I disagree. I am not stupid, but I have over 30 years of reading behind me. It is amazing how much that helps. I also like to learn, so that is also a good trait to have.
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.
