Enemy Within made the game a whole lot better. I got bored out of my brain with vanilla XCOM. Enemy Within made it interesting enough to complete once.

Enemy Within was good but after having completed the vanilla game I only needed to complete it once to get my fill since it was the same campaign, just with added mechs. (I completed normal vanilla, then C/I vanilla then C/I EW) Screw the "DLC" that came with it though, it's unreasonable to survive Portent without memorising the Thinman drops. I never got the Slingshot DLC but it suffers a similar issue with the pre-activated "Gankplank". Whenever I see someone complain about an unreasonable difficulty spike in XCOM it's almost always due to the DLC.

 

Ultimately though, EW is important because it's required to play the final version of Long War. :p My gametime went from around 120 hours post EW, to 450+ hours by the time I completed a single Long War campaign.

Playing Liberation Maiden on the 3DS. Absolutely worth the 5 bucks I spent on it.

Enemy Within and all the smaller DLC's made the game easier not harder.

Well, end-game was easier. Early game was arguably harder due to introduction of a new opponent and due to introduction of timers for the optional resource.

This is what being sick does to you. I thought you guys were talking about The Evil Within...

Yeah, I liked Xcom: Enemy Within.

Playd some Megaman 2 on the Nintendo Classic Mini. First went after Woodman because I could never remember the proper order. He was the wrong one :) So I went after Airman and he was really easy even with the basic cannon.

That could also be you getting better at the game. Enemy Within gives you more options to be successful, but you can still get thrashed without good tactics.

Playing a bit of Pillars of Eternity. Went into a lighthouse Defiance Bay. Bad idea :lol:

Need better preparation for that.

Hey guess what, hopping games again! (though I guess most of them aren't exactly story based, so I got that going for me)

 

Played some Civilization: Beyond Earth with Rising Tide. Kinda like the floating cities, maybe I should man up and stop playing on easy though...

 

Almost got routed for the first time with my Sisters Warband in Mordheim, for some reason the AI suddenly knew how to use its impressive, combined with a streak of bad luck on my end and a streak of good luck on the AI's end that almost ended rather badly. I got off easy with only two lasting injuries (none of which are too crippling at first sight) and a few light wounds. And this was "only" a Hard mission, ouch...

Now Act II mission 3 has opened up, this is going to be interesting, assuming I don't get anyone killed before my "main" squad members get out of the hospital, that is...

 

Also been playing some Soma lately. For some reason I've found the monsters often to be more annoying than frightening, at least so far (just started exploring Theta).

Spoiler

Shadowrun Returns.

 

An hour in and I am already loving the crap out of this game. It has a simple combat that works, great writing that keeps you hooked and it looks absolutely gorgeous. Having played PoE and Wasteland 2, I can safely say that this is the most honest thing to come out of a Kickstarter for me. It also has a sort of a Fallout/Arcanum/Planescape vibe to it. Give it a try if you like those games.

Be sure to play Dragonfall and Hong Kong too. Might like them even more.

Yup, the expansions are both a big step forward after Returns.

Ow yes they keep getting better but returns is a tricky one.
It's a great game IF u play it first before the others, otherwise dragonfall and Hong Kong just kept improving without going backwards (debateable I know for Hong Kong with the matrix but I liked it) and if u play returns after those it doesn't seem all that great because HK and DF are the same game as SR but just with a lot of improvements.

Complicated. Anyway i just hope i'll have as much fun with Battletech as i did with their Shadowrun games. If it's even more fun that so much better.
