While flying to a terror mission, another three missions pop up. WTF?

Here's my group from what I'm guessing is the final mission. The four on the left are psionics operatives, two to each tree. As you can see, I didn't really have the opportunity to upgrade ALL the pistols, and there's still one skeleton armor in there. Also still using light plasma rifles, because I figured the French needed all the help they could get when they requested some of the heavier ones.

(e: oops, glad i didn't deploy before i noticed that guy using an MG; changed shot)

Spoiler (highlight to read):
At least I think the temple ship is the final mission. The game gave me one of those ominous "are you sure" messages.

I'm just messing around doing missions instead of progressing the story. Did manage to increase my record for civvies saved to 16.

I had fun until the very last mission, then ran into the impassible door.

Apparently, it is either glitched or won't open until you kill every last mob on the map before you get to it. Which means that somewhere, there could be a glitched floater, causing me to have to run around and GUESS with psi storm or start the fucking thing over again. Either way, it'll take another fucking hour to get through.

Ironman players who run into this are so fucked.

I found the two to be extremely easy. Both of my shotgunners landed double-shot hits from max range. The remainder of that battle was no problem at all. I was more worried when the discs appeared, but like them, the sectopods missed all of their shots and were absolute cake. Didn't even have to kill the drones by the discs. Just let the explosion finish shit off. Too bad I'll have to do it all over again, but thank god I don't have to trudge through the entire map rifting spots for hiding floaters.

My guys are dropping like flies now that I decided to progress the game. I got complacent.

My A and B Heavies are dead as are my A and B Snipers. Only have three of my A Squad left and currently trying to train up some adequate replacements. Some promise there but we will have to see if they last.

this shit is awesome

playing on ironman mode and just got my 5 best guys killed though lol, a few LTs and SGTs. 

shame but its still really enjoyable, better than most games where it autosaves every 2 minutes so you can just keep going back and trying to same mission over and over.



oh i just tried multiplayer, searched for custom game with all filters set to "any", and it only finds 1 game!? wat

I'm delaying the inevitable. Got everything ready to take on the final mission, both Alpha and Bravo teams at full strength. haven't actually lost anyone since I last posted. But I've grown rather fond of my team, I'm hesitant is sending them into the unknown. Damn Ironman mode.

I also improved my Terror mission record to 17/18. I don't actually know how the one person was killed. The Sectopod and all the other baddies just immediately attacked my squad in an alleyway and the combined firepower wiped the floor with every one of them.

Yahtzee gives it thumbs up. Maybe I'll try it again to see if they fixed the fucking final mission.

I still have to buy this game.  Looks really, really fun. 

2k marine, the guys who made Bioshock 2, were making a first person x-com a year or two ago.  It looked like a mix of Mass effect and Brothers in Arms.  Now after being in radio silence for a while it appears they totally revamped the game because people were bitching about it being first person.  Now its third person.  Props to them for realizing a fuck up and changing their ways.  The industry needs more of that. 

I'm not usually a fan of live action video game trailers but this is quite a well-made teaser.

I don't think that X-Com being first person was the problem. The problem was that, among other things, it looked dull and uninspiring. A FPS X-Com is still very doable (especially now that  we have the new turn-based game out to mollify all the turn-based X-Com nerds), but it needs to be done right.

From gameinformer ;

When asked about whether The Bureau: XCOM Declassified would offer multiplayer, Gray offered a refreshing answer. "We wanted to focus on the single-player without distracting ourselves with multiplayer," he said. "We didn't want to screw over single-player by distracting ourselves, so we went all in. Hopefully the days of tacked-on, bullet-point multiplayer are over for the industry."
I love this man!

I love this game, it just ate up my whole weekend.

It really punishes you for acting stupid.  In fact after a view battles in which I've severely fucked up I'm now about to lose the entire game.  I was thinking maybe I ought to reload to a previous save but I just let the chips fall where they may.  After losing one of your high ranking people it seems kind of cheap to just go back and reload, the psychological damage is already done.  It reminds me of Pokemon, except instead of fainting and being out for one round they are permanently dead.  lol.

It's refreshing to play a video game that is accessible yet challenging at the same time.  In a sadistic way.

Unsure if worth a new thread, but here's a live-action trailer for the next game:
