I don't know if you can send me on the suicide mission as a Biologist but if you can, please do

I can but need to mod the save to do it. Probably will if we don't get a bunch of death wishers.

Did I miss the results of my brain roidening?

uuuh, no. Basic plan is to get all the goons recruited, cheat in the living space if we have to, and crunch the save changes at the same time in one shot if there are any. Prob will do it a little later

I didn't forget but i'm dreading shoehorning all these goons into the game. Better just rip the bandaid off. Later.

It'll be worth it when we're forced to send 36 rookies onto the final mission because everyone gets shot down every time we go to the alien dimension

Just send me.

I have been insane this whole LP and transitioned from irresponsible psuedo-biologist to extremely drugged out super sniper.

I'll not only murder everything in sight but bring back the best spare parts and gibblets for a lifetime of irresponsible bioengineering.

HELLO I WOULD LIKE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT MY VERY STRONG OPINIONS

My apoc game was getting a bit stagnant so I decided to mix it up with some XCOM 2 (y'know the new one.) I beat the first one and this one seems rather more difficult on the same setting, do I just suck now? I just ran into my first few sectopods and first gatekeeper and things did not go overly well.

Also, it's been a while. Could you visually customize your agents to this hilarious degree in XCOM 1?

One as in the one that was on PS3/360?

Yeah there were far less options when it comes to both the face and individual body parts.

In enemy unknown you could choose face, hair, beard, and one of like two gear style presets. And there were helmet options. But no tats, scars, specific body part gear styles, etc.

I finally got a letter from the health care insurance people asking exactly how I blew myself up. I remember posting about that in this thread, over three months ago.

What I'm saying is that american insurance companies move faster than snipers roof-hole-fixing. I'm not mad, we're going to be very happy to see where this goes.

extremely same.

Now that trumpbux are starting to kick in I really need to finish this motherfucker off

there was a huge group of goons who signed on right as I was like "JFC how am I gonna make spots for these dweebs?" So I have come to the conclusion that i'm gonna disregard all those posts and see who gives a gently caress or not and we'll go from there. In the next couple days the thread will restart.

There are maybe 8 more Serious Alien Dimension missions coming up. The way we have our org set up every single one is a suicide mission and it's likely the heroes of earth will be blasted into poo poo every time we try to make a jump towards the endgame. I dunno how many total missions may be left but we will need stalwart goons to throw their bods into the alien meatgrinder if the earth will be secured. Post your signups or bullshit because the thread restarts tomorrow.

Welp, biologists sure arenít being kept busy by the US government right now, so you can blast me into space (provided, of course, that equipping me with anything deadlier than a pocket protector no longer breaks the game by duplicating the stashes of my fellow walking corpses.)



Hereís hoping I duplicate this guyís success in terms of statistical unlikelihood (while improving on frequency.)
