So I wasn't ENTIRELY able to resist the charms of the Steam summer sale. I ended up getting XCOM:Enemy Unknown and XCOM: Enemy Within (they were bundled together for a fiver). The XCOM games are well-known enough that I don't feel compelled to do a review, but, needless to say, I'm bad at them.

I'm playing on the easiest difficulty setting, and while I still have all my original squad, a couple of rookies have been killed off while the original squad was unavailable for missions due to injuries. If I was a bit more liberal with my use of save/load that might not be the case, but fuck it; redshirts. Still, my shotgun-and-tazer guy is still alive from the original lineup, and I'm happy about that because he's Irish.

It's good that I'm not an actual military commander.

Either a poker face, or a look of intense determination to find some balls.

Tactics There is one rule for playing x-com, and that is COVER IS LIFE. At least until you can get the good power-armors researched.

Y'know, like Murphy wishes he had at the moment.

...Rotating rookies through your field team one at a time so you have a reserve of minimally competent backup when your main team gets hospitalized helps too.

It's unintentional I think that's just got to be an accidental Supernatural reference.... either that or Murphy's a fan.... Actually I could see that XD
