Let's Play... XCOM 2 (War of the Chosen)!

Post by Sly Boots » Fri Nov 23, 2018 2:27 pm

It's been on my mind to do a LP basically since this forum began months back, but no new games have really lent themselves to it terribly well. However, I've recently been dabbling with XCOM 2 again recently and thought I might do a Gamer's Arms Iron Man playthrough and see how far we get.

I'm not sure yet how often I'll update it, I'd like to post something at least a couple of times a week but keep it moving relatively quickly so not dwelling too long over each mission (like the Battle Brothers one where I had half a dozen images for each fight).

So, first question to ask, who fancies being in Team GA?

I won't go too mad in the character creator, but also let me know if you have a preferred colour scheme, and whether you want your character to be grim and serious, or fun and silly.

Might look to kick things off once we've got a few signed up, hopefully over the weekend.

Sound off!

Great! I think we have enough for an initial squad to get the ball rolling, but we'll need more as fatigue and injuries start to take a toll.

Will look to kick things off some time over the weekend. :)

First entry! :o

Quick note on the playthrough, I'm going on Commander difficulty, one down from Legend which scared me. I'm also doing an Iron Man playthrough however, so no in-mission saves and decisions, and deaths, are final.

I'm running a few mods, mostly some quality of life stuff, some extra armour skins that sort of thing, but I talk about them as they become relevant. Nothing dramatically game-changing however.

Enjoy! :D

Sign me up for the squad; I'd like to be grim and serious but with a bright pink and green colour scheme.

It's a bit strange my character being called Brian given that's my father's name. Still, two missions in and I'm not dead yet, so I'll take that.
Raid is our MVP this time
Pfft, this time.
