How you guys going with this game?
I failed on my first play through. Only took 12-13 hours of play time for the aliens to take earth....
Kind of disappointing considering i am an experienced xcom player and it was only on veteran, non iron man.
I like a challange though.

Doing better on my second play through but holly shit this game is hard. Seems harder than the last one?

Its a game that requires some patience and concentration for sure.
Every time i think i am doing really really well and its starts to seem like iam on top and its getting easy/easier it just gets really hard again.

Kind of a race against the clock, having to halt and slow the avitar project.

I like how its a challange but i think the aliens avatar project kind of goes at too quick a pace. Even the introduction/pace of the harder aliens appearing.
But maybe that's just becasue i used to play the old xcom games?

I think the game would feel more real and intense on iron man but its just too hard and unforgiving!!
I think you would some luck as well as the patience , skill and concentration.

And is it just me or dose using the skull jack early just make the game harder for yourself?

Anyways iam really liking the game. I almost lost earth again but iam hitting back now. Taking out alien bases. But holly shit its getting tough, even with all my weapon and amour upgrades.

Def the best graphics on an xcom game yet and i like the environment destruction and how fires spread and buildinjgs start to collapse.
Sahme about the lag/delays/freezing/slow loading at times but other than that, yeah.

Well i finished the game today. 60 hours all up including my first attempt so about 47 hours.
34/50 achievements.
Cool game, i would recommend.
There is replay value there if i want to finish the game on a harder difficuilty or on iron man mode.

As i said before, the game would be cool on iron man but very hard.

Its funny with xcom games, they go from being seemingly so dam hard it can be frustrating and stressful yet it then becomes quite easy.
Its so rewarding when its hard, and i guess it is rewarding once you get the upper hand but the thrill kind of goes away.
But i guess its no different from playing a game like Fallout or Skyrim or any RPG really(you go from being very weak to too strong).
Reward for effort but its a common things for me in games now, i get angry when its too hard but bored when its too easy

Anyways, anyone else playing it yet?

I dont think i'll play it again right away. But probably in future i'll try it on a harder difficuilty.

lmao of at the assumption that anyone was going to say that. Touchy subject much? ha ha
Hey i cant play Halo or Destiny or whatever else is only on console. No fucks were given though. I would play Halo if it were on PC though.

It is a bit strange that they made this PC only though.

Is not an assumption. That what people keep saying when asking if is possible for a console version. Well, I do give a fuck. I love the game.

So you're on a lap top or your phone or something when you type here? or just have a crap pc?
Is expensive to buy a pc no doubt.. I spent almost $900 on a recent upgrade, hence why i have not bought a console since xbox 360.
I wonder if the last one did not sell well enough on console or if its a compatibility/hardware thing?
Xcom not the most demanding game though so it should be fine for xbox or PS, you would think?
I never looked into the reason why it's PC only.

You should buy a pc though, when you can afford it. My friends told me that for YEARS before i finally did and i've never looked back.

I actually keep forgetting too look when ive got steam running. did they give it controller support? yes yes, I know that's some kind of taboo when in reference to a pc game but meh, I prefer a controller in my hands.

Eh only for certian games really, i guess. Not sure haven't looked either. To be honest i think this game was designed more for keyboard and mouse. I mean you use the keyboard most of the time but yiu can use 1,2,3,4,5,etc as short cuts/hot keys alot.
Although that's only in the field/combat.

I suppose my coordination with a mouse and keyboard wouldn't be such a hindrance when its a turn based game. still, I played the snot out of enemy unknown on the 360. figured they might have given it controller support for 2 as well. I guess its only out on pc right now though huh. maybe a silly question to begin with lol.

I meant to say that you use the mouse most of the time and can use keyboard for short cuts.
Anyways, yeah anyone could play this game even if not like keyboard mouse as there is nothing in the game that requires good aim or relexes or anything like that.
Yeah i guess lol. But i still dont see why it would not have controller support. But i just looked and it looks like it dose not.
