If the Hunger Games weren't young adult story that kind of volunteering would be right on spot, looking at the decadent lives of Panem citizens.

Speaking of...

... X-COM: Enemy Unknown (the old one), aka (as Steam calls it) X-COM: UFO Defense, aka (as the game itself says, when you load it) UFO Defense: Enemy Unknown, is kicking my rear end.

I mean, I've got seven awesome bases, I owned four large and very large aliens in a single day, and for some unfathomable reason, North and South America have both pulled out, despite the fact that I've ended every single Terror Mission in those continents with an "Excellent!" rating, and only missed one or two of the small or very small saucers.

DANG IT. >:I

EDIT: DANG IT SHAROTH, WHY DID YOU LINK THAT. WWWWWHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYY...?!

She will be a tribute, it'll for a group of Pea Bear and friends, who are all in her drama and field biology clubs, so artsy dramatic nerd girls :-)

Like I said, it's only a matter of time.

Were they in the range of your radars? In that game aliens fly a lot of ufos over the various countries infiltrating their governments by landing down and staying on ground for some time. You have to hunt down those ufos of your own accord to reduce effects of infiltration (which is not shown in game in anyway, unlike in the new XCOM, until the country drops out of council). And you don't have that fancy satellites to reduce the infiltration level...

I've had a metric ton of saucers. I've done something ridiculous like fifteen different successful missions - no failures, though I've come close a few times; most them being "Excellent!" successes, at that - on those two continents by June of 1999... and no failures. I've got daggum Hyperwave Decoders, and Avengers (one of which - the one at my North American base, in fact - won't finish repairing for some reason).

No terror missions have succeeded, and, as I said, only two or three small or very small saucers have done their business on the contents at all. :/

I mean, yeah, the game is supposed to be hard, but come on...

(Stupid Americans. Wait-!)

That is the joy of playing X-COM 1. You can lose, at any moment, significant assets, even without making any particular mistake. The "psychically dominated because glitches between wall sections" and the "stupid alien exits ship door, gets missed by eight kneeling people waiting for it, then throws grenade to kill four of them" are important parts of the game, which basically wants to teach you humility.

Also, you're playing it wrong if the mayor of a terror site isn't thinking something like "Oh fsck, the aliens are truly a horror, so many dead, so much destruction... I will have to call for X-COM, but if I do, there won't be stone upon stone left..."

Now that I have flight suits, I actually have to blast open walls - otherwise I can't leave upstairs areas. :/

Oh, and for actually useful tips: Laser rifles.

They lack the punch of plasma, true. But look at what you get:

They don't use clips. They don't cost elerium. They are weak enough to actually merely injure someone in a flight suit, and that being relevant is actually not that uncommon.

This allows you at least one big advantage: Spray the area. You don't lose points for destruction, only civilian casualties. If a house holds an alien, going in after it is DANGEROUS. Eradicate the house instead. Laser holes in walls are perfect for grenades to take out entire floors. As a bonus, you get flying floors.

Yes, Paizo's forums are weird in that if you try to put a URL bracket around two separate vertical lines of text, it breaks the link. So you have to link them separately like that.

What is "Banner Saga 4-Pack" and why should I care about it?

(I'm not finding the links to in on Steam for some reason, despite the being on the sales page; the description is lacking; and I'm not sure what it offers over just the game itself. Are the four things expansions, or just, like, sound-tracks and e-books, and documentaries and stuff?)

Banner Saga is a game based very heavily on Norse history, poetry, and mythology. It's also semi-famous for getting in a legal dispute with KING, the Candy Crush company, when the latter tried to copyright the use of the word "Saga" in game titles.

That's unfortunately all I know about it.

Once you go plasma there is no turning back. Lasers bounce off the enemies too much...

In the second game, gauss weapons on the other hand... I finished Terror From The Deep not using those crappy non-explosive alien weapons because they were slow and not firing in air.

Going hot with explosives is nice and all, but it greatly reduces amount of the most important spoils of war, namely alien clips and elerium. Of course flight suit and blaster launcher are usually worth the cleaning they can provide... Not to mention high level entrances to bigger ufos.

Thank you! I knew that stuff, but I actually appreciate the info, nonetheless! (Also, the Candy Crush thing is... hilarious. Yay, sanity won!)

Okay, Steam, no, really: what the heck?!

In a bit of an upset, the enthusiastic new trainee with a Justin Bieber haircut I like the least is the lady in her late 50s, did not see that coming.


Bastion? Transistor?
Only one is likely...
What do you guys think?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Bastion is a super awesome green robot from... somewhere, go with that.

Shadow Lodge

Definitely Bastion. One of the best storytelling experiences in a game that I've ever had.


Busy busy busy busy busy. Studying, class, cooking, work, projects, research papers, and I move one building over on Thursday. So. Much. Stuff. And the only things I've got under control are work and class. Well, under control until Black Friday. That's gonna get hairy.

I think Auntie Bieber haircut lady thinks I'm some sort of vampire or vigilante, she keeps saying s!$@ like "And there he lurks in the shadows"

I was in Lego, one of the brightest spots of the store I might add. I almost told her "My dad's side of the family is from Transylvania, you're not the first person to try to hunt us" but I didn't, just nodded and said "interesting" thanks for that one Freehold, works great :-)

I will be heading home in about 20 minutes. Mom is in a better mood. Dinner and a hot fudge sunday will do that to you. We went over to my niece's Veteran's Day concert at her elementary school. Not bad for a bunch of kids. Tomorrow I will be heading over to my brother's house to help him out with his classes. Mom has enjoyed having my little 80 pound puppy over here.

Edit - ~sighs~ So much for a binge run of Fallout 4. Real Life TM strikes again.
