Every now and then, you wish ever so badly that you had taken snapshot.

Imma just gonna leave these over here and wander off back into obscurity again (Basically, I forgot my password for like, two weeks and then decided to go and get a job again . . . I'm sure other things happened along the way, but MEH - fuckit chumsuckers)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Abvch0k ... ature=plcp The Shadowscythe Plays Xcom! Episode One

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-lONSr ... ature=plcp The Shadowscythe Plays Xcom! Episode Two

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8xJIA- ... plpp_video The Shadowscythe Plays Xcom! Episode Three

(AT TIME OF LINKING EPISODE THREE IS STILL BEING UPLOADED - HOLD ONTO YOUR SHIT-FREAKING HATS CHUMSUCKERS)

So yeah . . . I got busy with doing a lone series rather than a legacy game - but fucking hell am I having fun with this so far (well, when my internet lets me upload properly that is)

Saw the first episode there. Nice job, despite a few blatant mistakes.
But of course, we all make those.

"I know what the situation is. It's Fucked!"

I also enjoyed the "Wheeeee!" in the beginning.

Next time, I would suggest FUKKEN RUM.

Nice preview. I wish I didn't have to wait for the price to come down to play this.

A Large portion of the technical details where sorted in the second episode - although for some reason the game music "slips" out of sync with the narration/video as the episodes move on - If I keep the episodes at roughly 15 minutes and bring the frame rate down it *should* in theory help.

YEH YOU!

I meant, for example, that time when by moving your person to the door on the OTHER side of a car you probably could have gotten in a shot. It worked out because the alien did nothing, but that's not the point.

Scythe, what's your name on steam? I assume you are not being a little pussy and are playing XCOM on a computer, Mac or Windows.

Just finished the game on normal.
I made some extra saves, but I allowed 2 guys to die, experienced dudes.
So I could have done Ironman.

Everything was just fine my first playthrough, until June 8. I even made a song about it.
