Die Alien Scum!

Well despite the bills I tried to work around this week it wasn't all bad.   Gamefly sent me the latest X-Com game.  And I'll admit I'm having a blast.  The ability to customise individual soldiers is fun and while I don't use it all the time I do have soldiers based on me, my boy, and my sister in my A-team squad (we are support, sniper, and heavy in that order).   Plus the nickname system is another touch that makes it feel real.   In game a soldier doesn't earn a nickname till he reaches Sargent rank and though the nickname can be edited after the computer generated ones seem natural.  

The game really helps make you feel like the world is real.   As I play missions I can't help but weave little stories about the squad.  Like my sisters soldier as a rookie was on a mission investigating a landed scout ship.   When her and her fellow rookie were mind controlled by a sectiod commander.  My sister shot me,  but broke the control turned and her first kill was the sectiod commander.   For my sister who just broke up with an abusive and controlling boyfriend it was oddly appropriate

It's loads of fun

I'm definitely going to end up buying this game

I'm almost done the game,  I'm just farming ufos now for enough ethereal corpses to outfit all my troopers with mind shields.   I'm sure we will need them on the final mission.   Luckily where before a small scout might only have some sections and floaters as muscle... Now ever single ship seems to be commanded by an ethereal.   You think that the highest cast would know better then to put around in the tissue paper armored light scout ships.

When I buy my copy I'm gonna play through at a higher difficulty.
I think then ill hire my solders and name them after my watchers,  and keep a weekly tally on who's alive,  who's dead, ranks, kills and the like

Guarantee if I enlist I'll be one of the first dead, but on all seriousness I'd love to have you as a friend on PSN!
