XCOM 2 - War of the Chosen expansion


#81

Round 2 of that mission would have involved a literal Flawless rating, which was broken only by the most miraculous, charmed, “did he really just do that?” cross-map one-shot kill by an Andromedon that you’ve ever seen.

Ok game. I’ll give you that one. But otherwise…get rekt :tada::rage::tada:

@STORM179 Necro incoming…

Now that I fixed my PC, I finally went back to this game. I forgot how much fun it is browsing for mods in the workshop. I have spent 30 minutes or more just reading and subscribing to various WOTC mods.


#83

Hahaha. When I started my playthrough the game was still brand new, so no mods were available at all.

Knowing that they’re out there now might finally give me a reason to beat my current playthrough and start a new game… :thinking:


#84

I’m still working my way through an XCOM2 playthrough, haven’t touched the expansion although I do own it. I think I’ve killed two of the King/Queens from one of the DLCs. Maybe three. I have been scumming, but not all the time. I’ve lost a few useful characters to seriously difficult missions and just decided finishing the mission was worth losing them.

I’ve been distracted by other games and real life for a while, but XCOM2 is definitely one I always come back to. One of my favorites.


#85

Aaah, save-scumming. Never gets old.


#86

This.

I am enjoying the new features but I can rarely send bonded squad mates into battle together due to injuries, etc. Also, the bonding is nice in a movie like “Predator” but focusing on these aspects actually jeopardizes completing the actual mission at hand as it is distracting me-- find myself doing what it is best for two soldiers rather than the entire team and mission objective.


#87

Fudge! Is there anything the Chosen cannot do? wtf?!
@STORM179

Being in charge for 20-30 minutes only to get decimated in one 15 second turn. XCOM2: War of the Salty!!

(Edit: I realize you are in Vietnam, so ignore my rant and enjoy the :sunny: )


#88

Beat my current squad :smirk:

Seriously, I’ve dropped the final Chosen so many times at this point that I feel bad for him when he shows up :joy:


#89

But yeah, before you hit serious late game, a Chosen can often ROYALLY ■■■■■ up a mission that was going swimmingly. It’s a nice tension builder :slightly_smiling_face:


#90

did you play that free(?) expansion or update, basically the one that came out after WOTC? I have yet to check it out.


#91

Not yet. Think I’m gonna finish off the super long campaign I’ve been running over the break, and then go through again with the all-new stuff. :slight_smile:


#92

Step one - reinstall XCom2 on my laptop (in progress as we speak)
Step two - start that MFer up
Step three - kill some alien scum
Step four - rage quit after my squad is decimated after one turn by OP chosen
Step five - go back to step 2 after 8 weeks

:laughing:


#93

Lol. Sounds like a solid plan to me :slight_smile:

Happy New year, I recommend you check out “Mutant Year Zero RTE”. If you’re into XCom2 you might love that game.

Edit:
Been watching a bit of Christopher Odd YT channel where he plays Mutant Year Zero. Think this game really has a unique character style. I was not familiar with the source material, but this combined with the turn based strategy gameplay really got my interest.
