This....Classic/Ironman is the starting difficulty, anything less is carebear mode.

Try the Long War mod. The original game on Impossible is like watching the opening movie compared to Long War.

I have and never completed (still trying), it is truly a challenge (which i really enjoy)! Personally i get excited when i lose at a computer game, it happens so rarely that it really adds to my enjoyment. Most games today i breeze through even on the most difficult settings. Its when i actually lose, over and over, does it finally peak my interest and get my synapses firing that i have a challenge on my hands.

The human enemies in XCOM are poorly integrated and have almost no scaling. It isn't long before they post no threat whatsoever but nevertheless continually harass XCOM, because pinpointing their base takes an unreasonable amount of time and/or trial and error. It could have been a lot more interesting if the enemy human forces more closely paralleled XCOM in equipment/abilities/tactics.

They hit Tier 2 weapons & upgrades generally speaking.

But yes, usually by the time you find their base unless you get lucky, you're starting into plasma and power armor and it's just a slaughter-fest.

Depends on the difficulty level and second wave options you choose. I play on classic/ironman with several second wave options so it wasn't all a simple cakewalk in my case. Laser weapons aren't completely harmless.

This....Classic/Ironman is the starting difficulty, anything less is carebear mode.

Horse armor or not, this (Xcom2) is the game i've been most looking forward to lately. As for Enemy Within, its worth it IMO.

Man, I had to go get a few xrays and an ultrasound today and now I know what a hooker must feel like. The ultrasound guy was some Rooskie entirely devoid of humour. So as soon as he's done he basically throws me a roll of paper towels to clean up and leave. 'Money's on the dresser, clean up and get out!' I asked if he'd ever seen an alien in his line of work and he looked at me like I was insane. I explained the joke of the film and his job to which he scowled and walked away. Tough crowd.

Hope all is good, as for the 'Patriots' they do nothing but tarnish the game for the last decade and a half. WTH is with Boston sports teams?

Free weight dumbbell curls normally fixes any odd feeling i have in my dominate hand (and off hand). Also the odd Ibprofen (no more then 1200mg a day, better less then 800mg/d..) does wonders for the odds and ends as i enter into old age. Most of the time strength exercise and a simple anti-inflammatory works for me. That said you shouldnt make a habit of any the IB's or anything else as to keep your kidney's and liver sound.

Egosoft will never, ever, get another dime from me.

Eh, they've done a pretty good job patching this turd up, they gave away some meaty DLC/expansion stuff for free, so it's not a case where they got their money, flipped you off and ran away forever. So I'm willing to look at their next game.

That said, I'm never again pre-ordering another game of theirs. Their next one, if it's any good, I'll get when it's on sale for 20 bucks somewhere.

I get that, but for me the way that they blindly ignored the user base after the immediate release of rebirth and continuously misrepresenting their product before release is unforgivable to me. Egosoft to me was once a promising and respectable developer, and now its a bit worse than the rest.

I heard in Windows 10 you can have 10,000 units on screen. How is this possible? I thought the video card did all the work.

Your a bit confused, normally with RTS games its the CPU that has to do all the unit tracking etc, so with Win10 it would (i guess) be through dx12 shoved off onto the GPU which can handle multi-threaded objects much better.

Although i'll be sad to miss out on a battlefront game, EA isnt getting any more of my money (and hasnt for the last few years). Your mileage may vary

I'm interested in the X-Com EW Long War mod but not sure I want to subscriber to Nexus at a fee to test it out. Has anyone here played it? Is it worth the fee to get the latest beta? Thanks in advance.

Subbing to nexus isnt a requirement, you can go the free route, just slower download speed if i'm not mistaken.

Has it changed much since its free weekend on 3/23/2014?

I've played it a lot the last few months. There's a ton of new heists. Cool thing about them is anyone can join even if you dont have the DLC's. It just takes the DLC to start host your own game. I recommend getting the base game then all the weapon DLC's, then your pretty much set.

The Great Filter in relation to The Fermi Paradox is how i explain away the vast size and vast age of the universe with no real contact thus far. I'm sure there's a ridiculous amount of bacteria and microbes and probably some single celled organisms out there. Maybe even a few multi cellular organisms too. However i dont think any of them have ever survived long enough to be able to spread. Which makes it all the more important that we, as a species do just this.
