Should Firaxis be concerned that few people who hadn't played either previous game did not give XCOM 2 a chance? Is XCOM 2 only interesting to Firaxis loyalists?

Uhm, no, Xcom2 is by and large only interesting to Xcom fans and a subset of TBS fans outside of that. This really does not seem that difficult to figure out.

I doubt Firaxis believed they were going to get 8 million new customers with Xcom2 when it's just Xcom:EU made more difficult (and in some cases, more annoying).

I had the most awesome sequence just now. Standard mission, I forward my ranger, and he unlocks 2 groups of 3 aliens each, at 12 and 9 o clock, and 2 more turrets at like 7 o clock.

My colonel sniper activates Serial, which refunds all your action points if you kill something with your sniper rifle. He takes 3 shots at 3 of the exposed aliens, and kills all 3. This empties his sniper rifle, which he reloads with a free reload from an item, then I put him on Kill Zone, which is a cone in which everything that moves gets an overwatch shot.

Which kills the other 3 aliens. :-wheeee-:

6 kills in one turn by one character, not using explosives. That's gotta be a record!

Every time you return from a mission to the avenger for the duration of your session, pressing CAPS LOCK during the load sequence in the drop ship, it'll pause for 1-2 seconds and then immediately trigger the continue button.

Normally, it will sit there for 30-45 seconds showing the stats and the crew before it pops continue.

Oh, okay, I thought they meant that you needed to have Caps Lock ON during the load screens. I'll try again tonight. Thanks for the tip!

(that loading screen is the frikking worst. The entire GAME loads in like 15 seconds for me, but the returning from mission load screen takes 40 seconds? WTF Firaxis?)

So everyone will get it on March 10th, then? Since I doubt there's a way to play this without Origin.

Access is their subscription service. It's where people just pay money directly to EA every month, which I think we all know has been EA's dream all along.

Oh right, I forgot about that "Just pay us continuously so you can play our old crappy games" deal they have.

So, I have a strange issue happening now that I am on my 12th mission.

The game goes through the loading cutscene of the meat puppets in the delivery can and allows me to hit the mission start button fairly quickly. Then it shows the cutscene where the meat puppets drop down the rope and loads the world...and then pauses. From anywhere between 3-7 minutes. Just pauses. Disk (SSD) isn't especially busy.

I'm using the leadership, SMG, disable mission timer, and slower Avatar mods. Disabling them all and starting a new game exhibits the same behavior.

Anyone else seeing that?

I have pauses from time to time (and the game actually just crashed on me for the first time), but nothing that long...

why is that even a thing? like, i don't... i can't even... caps lock?!? really?

I'm honestly not sure what people are talking about. I tried it, and the loading times are exactly as long as they were before (ie, insanely long.)

The only thing it seems to do (I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like it is) is that it's auto-interrupting some of the small cutscenes and advancing you that way. (so it interrupts the cutscenes of the avenger flying over, and your squad rappelling down.)

Props to Ubisoft for not just shitting out another one and actually taking the time to retool it.

Yeah, people have been clamoring for it for several years now, but kudos for them actually listening. I never thought they would do this, so good on you, Ubi.

I'd love for AC to come back with a kickass game in 2017 or 2018 with new gameplay and a world where there's more to do than just "gather 100 of these and climb 20 towers."

2. 10 Skyrim secrets Feb 11, 2016, 16:50 Creston
 
More accurately titled:

A few Skyrim secrets everyone already knew, a few things that aren't even a secret (The Silver Hand followers carry Potions of Cure Disease? Really? *mind asplodes*), and a few things that were cribbed literally from the Lore of Tamriel book.
