I need a new load of recruits.

Do you have access to alien blaster technology yet?

They make excellent "tin openers". One shot knocks a hole in the battleship, the second shot fired through the hole clears the way for the grunts :)

I've researched most things in the game at this point. There are a few aliens I haven't managed to get, but I think that is about it. Oddly enough I haven't seen a single Muton so far. I still need to locate another alien base so I can get the last mission. I've had all the weapons for almost two months now and am sitting on a pile of 150 scientists that have nothing to research.

Hehe, time to cut down on research expenses. Now I feel tempted to play this game again, although I've started new games before, I tend to drift towards X-Com 3. Maybe it is time to visit Cydonia again and visit some righteous retribution on the master brain :)

The game breaks if you research a base boss too early, don't remember the specifics. Different issue in UFO and terror from the deep.

Played the Jagged Alliance - Back in Action demo. Finished the tutorial and started the demo mission (secret lab in Orta). The map is pretty big, but graphic looks good and sound is fine too, imo. What I noticed is that the controls annoy me. Especially that I can't zoom in / out as I wish, etc. makes me feel as if I can't see a lot. And then you'll have to move the view with WASD and not with the mouse... But maybe I am not yet used to it...

Now seriously. Giving items from one character to the next is this: Click on the merc, move mouse to right side of the screen, click "share" button, then click on the other merc and now a window pops up where you move items from one merc to the other. Could have been done A LOT more simple and less click-heavy, imo...

Combat seems hard. So far I had no battle yet in which I survived without getting wounded. The combat system itself doesn't help it much either... I just hate to press pause all the time and see where my men are, where the enemies are, that I have to click for every(?) shoot action, etc.

But yea, graphic is good looking in the game. I even don't mind the character faces that much anymore. From all Jagged Alliance-like games which had been released in the past years (Brigade E5, 7.62, Hired Guns, etc) I find this one to be the closest one to a real JA game. Though, not yet sure if this is only due to the same mercs or because it feels much more polished than these other 3D real time with pause JA-inspired games.

I decided to play through Ada's assignment. So much less frustrating not having to tote around a useless baggage (Ashley) and not have to worry about having her die on me. :)

Interesting stuff on JA: Back in Action. I'm glad to see it is on Steam, I might pick it up down the road just for the nostalgia factor.

There's a little viral game going around based on SCP-087. If you really want to find it, Google will be your friend.

Gave it a try and was jumping at shadows by floor 30.

Xcom update!

It's not September and I'm finally getting my guys started on psionics training. I can only hope that at least some of them show some aptitude for not being mind controlled. I'm pretty sure that my captain isn't too shabby which I am grateful for as he is a one man alien murdering machine right now. He was one of two soldiers I had on a mission earlier in the month that did not end up mind controlled at some point.

August went pretty well. My monthly rating was 11,408, but I lost all my Nigerian 419 income. Apparently they weren't happy about the alien base that was set up on the 30th that I couldn't get to because my transport was still being repaired after shooting down a battleship on an alien base mission. Apparently I didn't get it in time. And the crappy thing is that I think the base is a snakeman base. I really don't want to go fight a bunch of chrysalids in tight corridors. >_>

Not sure I would call this a game. It seems to be nothing more than endlessly walking down a stairwell.

I tried to load up my current play through of Assassin's Creed Revelations, but just couldn't get into it. I don't know what it is ... those Desmond Miles Tetris-like sections really sapped me of my interest. Plus the story just isn't that appealing or deep to keep my interest.

Almost done the Ada story in RE4. After that, I'll either move on to Skyrim, or return to Batman Arkham City to finish my New Game+,

Worms. Addictive, fun and you can play a few rounds in 15-20 minutes.

Gorth and his henchworms shall rule the tournament chart. Cry Havok and let lose the Worms in Paradise!

Went back to playing Nier, reminded why I don't like it. This game was, is, and probably will be even more so, sooooo overhyped it's not even funny. This game seems to suffer from almost every type of gameplay mistake/problem. Shooting on a console with no autolock...or even an aiming reticle (no autolock is doable as long as I KNOW where I'm actually shooting). Action combat without being able to see who is what or where, especially behind you or have any awareness of what's even to your side at times...and camera going wonky on you.

Story is fine...but the gameplay blows...hard.

Overhyped? I'm fairly sure NIER flopped commercially and critically.

I also haven't heard of it. It can't be that hyped.

The only major coverage it seemed to get was about the fact that it has a different design for the protagonist in Japan and the US. A big bulky man looking for his daughter for US. And a skinnier guy looking for his sister (maybe) for Japan.

Borderlands.
Went down an elevator to pick up some weapons to sell. Go up. Die for no reason what-so-ever. Had to pay 5000 to make 500.

Good thing money's so worthless, I keep loosing tons when getting killed by the bosses (early on never, now later usually once, very rarely twice).

Also wondered why I have the GOTY and there are still little nitpickity bugs that irk me. No one ever thought to fix up the +ammo capacity skill (assault?)/vehicle bug? (You get about 6 additional bullets maxed out. But when leaving a vehicle it's loaded at the original max. So each time you exit a vehicle you have to reload to fill up the rifle. It's Soooooo annoying)
