And now for something you where not expecting . . .
I love Xcom - Xcom was the first game I ever played on the Amiga 1200 - you lead the front of the aptly named "Xcom" or eXtraterrestrial COMbat force leading a shadow war against alien invaders from beyond, it had RPG elements, strategy - and allowed you to build your own bases and direct your research and construction to lead the way for mankind to up-tech and beat the aliens.
Terror from the Deep was much the same, but underwater.
Apocalypse was a half-released misshapen mix of what would have been perhaps the ultimate game of the series, I think it suffered from massive problems with funding and was forced to release early - but it was still an awesome game none the less.
Interceptor and Enforcer I never played, and Micropose went under before it could release any more in the series.
About a year ago Xcom Enemy Unknown was released - opinion varies on this game, but I myself love the game as a modern "re-hash" to the original, but it still felt empty after a while, until Enemy within was released - and Enemy Within takes Xcoms already near-awesomeness and packs in so much extra fucking content that I have thus far pushed 80 hours into a single player game that I still have not finished yet.
And I love MECS - Mechanised Exoskeleton Combat Suits.
With this in mind, take a screenshot of my team much earlier in the game, followed by the Scythian take on the MECS.
So yeah, Laser shotgun, Shoulder based missiles, Shoulder based Laser cannon and a KINETIC STRIKE MODULE for ROCKET PUNCHING the LIVING SHIT OUTTA THINGS.
I believe my work here is done for the day.
