Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

I just started the last mission of XCOM, even though I think I'm not commanding a super strong squad. I have:

- Col. Fiona Campbell, Scotland - An expert sniper
- Col. Katie Wilson, UK - An extremely badass psi-assault chick "The Volunteer"
- Col. Kwasi Kuumba, Nigeria - A really good medic who has been on 90% of all missions since acquiring him as a Captain.
- Col. Ari Meir, Israel - my most recently promoted colonel. Good at suppression, I guess.
- Maj. Semeynova, Russia - A heavy who is new to the team (picked her up in Russia just a few missions ago, but she's gifted, so she's coming)
- Maj. Victor Remy, Russia - a relatively inexperienced assault guy who is replacing Shotsy Matsuda who died a few months ago. She wasn't very special anyway.



So my heavy could be a really weak spot. I just never found one who i was very succesful with until her. But oh well. I saved before starting. And I'm willing to make sacrifices.

I really cannot wait to start my second playthrough.

Haha. While I was writing this I couldn't even remember what Semyenova's first name is, or how to spell her last. I think I've only taken her on one mission. I should have brought along my lower-level American heavy, Watt "Pig Pen" Sanders. I have more of a connection with him. But Semyenova's gifted AND her will stat is like 94.

If it makes you feel any better my KIA former assault class squadmate was Japazillian.

That's exactly why I posted this here instead of the XCOM thread. To entice people to consider this awesome game.

I'm no expert in geography of the British Isles but I thought Scotland is part of the U.K.

Hmm yeah I don't know. The flag for Campbell is Scotland and the flag for Wilson is the Union Jack.

Well, that was a massive and repeated failure. Time to retry with replacing my Heavy with my 3rd support guy, Ben "Gonzo" Green.

Just Bought Anarchy Reigns, this game is definitely worth the $30 but I just feel slogging through the Free Missions in Campaign can get old rather quick, especially when the Free Missions are piss-easy on Normal Mode, then the Story Missions' difficulty are on a whole 'nother level.

That's was better. Dropped the useless heavy and brought Gonzo. ZE ROCKETS DO NOTZING. The ending of the story was kinda weak, but oh well. I guess it's not really about that. You gotta start over sometime.

I might start a new play through on Classic, or I might just let my brother borrow it for awhile.

As for other games, I played a little bit of FTL this morning. Tonight I'll probably play Hitman, or maybe start Dishonored. I've had it since Black Friday and haven't opened it yet.

Playing Far Cry 3.

It's like Far Cry 2, but better!

Though there are a lot of things that bug me. Like the Buck missions being stretched out over five goddamn missions when it could've been two long ones, and the constant drug trips, especially the one that somehow gives you hallucinations of the future.

Besides that, I'm having all too much fun just using the bow and arrow. Especially since I just read Green Arrow: Year One.

Tackling my Steam backlog with Kotor II: The Sith Lords. Got the Restored Content Mod so it's actually good.

When I get home I'm thinking of finally starting up Xcom, but I also have the urge to play through FF9 again cause its been a long time.

BoF: Dragon Quarter. Saving system is still a retarded remnant from earlier entries in the series, but I can't bring myself to dislike something with such a great story.
