64. Re: XCOM: Enemy Unknown Patch Oct 13, 2012, 23:08 Creston
I've had aliens hit me when they had no LOS, I was hidden on the same side of the door as they were (Ie, the door faces north, the alien is to the East of the door, one level up and hiding behind an air conditioning vent and I'm hiding on the East side of said door. NO WAY he can see me, OR hit me, I'm under full cover, and they fire and do four damage.)

LoS in this game is seriously, seriously, seriously fucking BROKEN. Basically it doesn't really matter what kind of cover you have. If you're in range of an alien's gun, it will fire at you and most times it WILL hit you.

This turns it into not so much a game of tactics, as a game of health management. I'm actually getting kind of irritated with it, especially since that kind of bullshit puts my guy back in the hospital for 10 days.

I also completed a mission and never got a "Continue" button, and the whole thing was basically just stuck. I had to end task the game. And then I had to replay the whole fucking thing. So now I'm just going to save right before finishing one, because that was really irritating.

I'm enjoying the game, but I play it for two hours or so, and then I get tired of the bullshit alien hits and I go back to playing Guild Wars 2. I don't mind the difficulty and I don't mind losing, but I do mind losing because an alien can fire THROUGH an air conditioning vent and through a fucking wall at a soldier he can't see, and put that soldier in the hospital for 2 weeks.
