I just lost Col. Tucker, my first really serious blow. 43 kills, 17 missions, and my god-like sniper had two chrysallids rape him because I made a dumb move.

This game is great.

Yeah, any game that can make me so attached to my characters that I almost want to cry out in pain when I lose one is brilliant in my book. It's like losing your queen in chess unexpectedly times ten. Dan Stapleton of PC Gamer once wrote in an X-COM retrospective that naming your favorite soldier after yourself was a must because it made you care even more about him but it also had the effect of telling the aliens to hunt him down and kill him at all costs. Somehow they * always* knew. So true! I am trying it now in my current game.
