    I’m fiddling with Wastelands 2.

    Without going into what I understand of the history between Wastelands and Fallout, suffice to say it places like an turn and squad based tactics version of Fallout.Report

    War of the Chosen update: It’s awesome, I love it, this game is frakking hard even on Normal difficulty now. Much of my trouble, admittedly, stems from not understanding the importance of new elements in the strategy layer–but that’s good! The Chosen are irritating in a similar way that the Alien Rulers are irritating, but there is soooooo much juicy goodness in everything else that I’m willing to put up with them. I can definitely feel the shadow of Long War Studios in this DLC.Report

      On release, I only managed to play X-Com 2 for a few hours before giving up in frustration. But War of the Chosen has added some advanced timing options (doubling the game length and the mission timers in particular) that are really helping me.

      I also like the flavour the new resistance factions have added to the game. Also the VA is basically a TNG reunion.Report

      I’m only just now making this connection…War of the Chosen introduces the concept of “Soldier Bonds:” Two soldiers can develop a bond with each other which translates to abilities which can be used on the battlefield.

      So in essence, what WotC has done is create work spouses for XCOM.Report

    Yesterday I bought Rogue Squadron for Nintendo 64 from a guy on Facebook. It was my favorite game on that platform and my copy got lost in a move. He was happy it was going to a good home. Win-win. The 64 is still hooked up, next to the Xbox, so I plan to take the game for a quick spin this weekend. Should be fun.Report
