Starting to play again, what should I look out for?
« on: August 08, 2017, 08:20:24 AM »
Last time I played was probably in one of the final experimentals before 0.C. What should I look forward to, as in changes to mechanics, and potential new zombie types / name changes?

Lots of stuff, check the keybinds for the run option that consumes stamina, and I would advise to use Coolthulhu's patch. As guns' accuracy is broken and it fixes it.

Mars is currently the only planet populated entirely by robots. Therefore Martian invasion is the same thing as the robots taking over.

Good judgement comes from experience.
And experience?
Well, that comes from poor judgement.

man, i wish the new x-com games weren't that fucking shit.

but they are, they don't even have a proper action point system.
1. disassemble lockers 2. disassemble broken console in the southeast corner 3. you now have the materials to craft a metal funnel, 60L tank and a brazier 4. find a second shelter or rip another 60L out of a car 5. you now have infinite clean water
people ask THAT often.

Although I will say xcom 2 was an improvement. Unfortunately the guy who I think made the original games is also apparently in on this system as the new game he is making Phoenix point is also going to use a similar system. Well at least we have xenonauts and open x-com.

Well... at least we'll always have jagged alliance 2 and the wildfire DLC when you get desperate.

FTFY, i will google open xcom though.

jagged alliance 2 and the DLC wasn't that great, it wasn't bad though, save it for when you're jonesin, but i've literally played years of JA2, it's still by far the best turn based strategy game ever made.

which is ironic, given the more recent ones were the absolute worst turn based strategy games ever made.
