XCOM: Enemy Within Security Breach trailer

So yeah.  We have spies now in XCOM, and a new human enemy.

Gupta has also been hanging out with all the major gaming sites, showing off the new Covert Ops missions.

On 10/9/13, celebrate XCOM: EU's birthday on the 2k twitch.tv live feed [twitch.tv/2k] at 10:00 AM Pacific (1:00 PM Eastern).  And then we might get an answer to who the heck's "corrupting" the XCOM twitter page.

Just a quick FYI: Firaxis supposedly completed a press conference recently (around 11-ish hours ago by the time I post this).  Look for new XCOM: EW info later today.  And if it isn't today, there was an NDA that is supposed to expire 10/9/13.

Miiiight be something to do with the "EXALTs".

See you then.

In celebration of the upcoming Enemy Within expansion, with the power of med kits I hereby resurrect this thread!

Word on the satellites.
I finally added my first one yesterday. First excavate, then build, then build again, and then launch and position the damn thing.

Yeah, you're definitely going to have to pick up that pace if you want to take on Classic.  I will warn you now, the jump in difficulty can be jarring.

I had a Sniper taking a shot with 100% Hit and 55% Crit, and the bleeping-bleeper MISSED.

You sure it wasn't a 99% shot?  Because the game doesn't cheat like that.  If it's 100%, it will hit.

The latest challenge is clearing a Terror Mission in Nigeria without 2 of my veterans.
It's been rough, but in the end my money's on me. Cool
I just need to get to the citizens before the Chryssalids without getting wasted by said Chryssalids.
Not easy.

Just remember, you didn't pay anything for those civilians.  Tongue  Cold, I know, but when the big boys come out, you'll be glad they can be distracted.

Combing the thread for previous X-Com discussion, and have zero luck Tongue,

I tried at one point, but it died down quickly.

That's what I need in X-Com. A freakin' melee specialist.

And in EW, you'll get a rocket-powered one!

Aye.
My badass is Col. Cesar "Sledge" Ramirez.
He's half the squad by himself.

Ok, here's one thing you need to know for certain: BUILD MORE SATELLITE UPLINKS!!  WITH SATELLITES READY TO GO THE MOMENT THE UPLINK IS UP!!

Ahem.  Sorry.  That's usually something that trips people up their first playthrough, because the game falls short in getting trough just how quickly you need those satellites up.

Also, adjacency bonuses are your friend.  You will thank the extra satellite, the extra power, the extra resources, etc.

Also, you do not need to raid the alien base immediately, but doing so

I have also done the base raid with four guys using only starting equipment, so it's doable.  It's very tough, though, so I'd suggest getting the squad size upgrades first.  And maybe a laser or two.

Remember that four-legged walking robot that was being developed with funding from DARPA? It's back!

Yeah, something you could trip with a rope.  That'll haunt me for nights to come.

I hath X-Com'd like all good citizens should.
What should I know?
I'm at the base raid, but haven't started it yet.

This your first playthrough?

PC.  Tongue

I've kind of long given up on deciding which one is "better" and more which one I have at the moment.

Like XCOM?  Like FTL?  How about a combination of the two?

Hi, people. How's everyone doing?

On another note the other posts on this topic are fairly depressing.  Does anyone hace anything not-so-heavy to converse about?

I was going to ask just what the heck this guy is saying.  Even the caption guy has no clue.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Squads trailer

What I like is that this could be the "Multi-player at arm's length" mode, where you can fight a bunch of Wargames matches to build up your squad, go offline, and let that squad that you built fight other people in Squad Assault.  It's also a nice way to level up a load out that you might not have much chance to play.  I'm also wondering if you can prestige a soldier without playing as him/her at all.
