In other shocking, shocking news:  Using fines to make up for lack of a tax base erodes trust in the local police forces.

The actually shocking thing is Mother Jones publishing an article with which I agree.  What is the world coming to?

I usually think Connery, Craig, Brosnen.

Let the flame war begin!

And everyone that were hoping for an XCOM 2 Long War mod went "aaaaaaaaaw".
Hope for that is not lost, though it is looking sadly unlikely at the moment.  Sad

It does kinda stink that the choices seem to be "support consoles" or "support mods."   Sad  I think mods are more important than consoles, but I am a PC gamer, so I may be biased.  That said, the modding communities of the Fallout and Civilization games really help the replayability of their franchise games.

Saw this and thought, "Happy Birthday MilitiaJim."

Mid November, but I will celebrate it anytime.  Cheesy

On the downside, no more zombies!  Awwww, where are the models for the inevitable ZCOM mod going to come from?
I remain confident they left in the artwork to make the zombies.

Why has no one set up an "adventure vacation" company that puts together squads and platoons to hunt ISIS in "Kurdistan" or Russians in Ukraine?

They weren't killing when they said the aliens are more terrifying.
They are, as a matter of fact, killing.  Tongue

If the newly hatched chryssalids are notably weaker than adult ones, I'll call the mechanic neat and well implemented.

And replace it with better/cooler stuff...  But I think that revolver will stick around a bit. 

But I'd be very good with a Rainbow Six style X-Com shooter.  There are plenty of ways to mix the geoscape with other genres.  Even a Dawn of War II thing would be cool.

I would appreciate it if you could keep negative comments to yourself, please. If you absolutely must post them, know that I will probably not respond. I just don't have it in me to engage with that right now.
The worst I can muster is a promise for the beverage of your choice at its proper temperature.  No promises on the comfy chair.   Wink

You can't hustle art.

This Vourteque guy claims some steampunk space.

ROCK ON!  I never played Torg, just had two books in Egypt, and they were -ing sweet.

  Well, I'd argue 9mm is a 'good caliber'... for a smaller shooter Smiley. Still hoping to get a smooth heft/recoil mechanic for dealing with firearms in contemporary and sci-fi settings.
I think 9mm is the worst of both (.17 Hornet and .45ACP) worlds.  Not big enough for consistent stopping, and too big to poke lots of holes.  Go big or go small, medium is drek.  (I think training and big is the way to go, but YMMV and METT-T.)

Mmmm, thread necromancy.  Anyhoo.

The new Kalashnikov sidearm:

The PL-14 Lebedev.  Standard 9mm damage, maybe a longer range increment or a +1 to damage for the longer barrel.  A pity they aren't, yet, offering it in a good caliber.
