I've actually had to start up a separate campaign to run parallel to this as it's gotten its hooks into me again and finding it hard to put down :lol:

Do you have the WOTC expansion, Jez? It makes the campaign so much better imho.

Yes I do. It made it more frustrating so I'll install that too.

I do agree that the game is better with WotC, though I do think the base game is fantastic anyway.

Oh, indeed, loved the base game when it came out as well, improved so much on the first game, which I'd really liked also. I just really like the series and all the iterative steps forward each new release has made.

Glad to see I'm onboard now.

When I did my XCOM Apocalypse (massively underrated by the way) Let's Play years ago, I vaguely seem to remember 'Sly Boots' was mainly just there to carry the motion scanner until he died. Hopefully I can be more useful here.

Yeah, that looked quite similar to my first attack by the Viper King. I can't believe you grenaded Counselor Troi! Could you not have used the grenade just to clear his cover and then shot him?

Unfortunately he's not the worst you'll meet (I don't know how much you've read, I don't want to spoil anything). I found Subject Alpha the worst to deal with simply because the abilities he takes from the standard enemy he's based on are *horrible* when he gets to react to everything you do.

The only excuse I can proffer is that at that point I was deep in the throes of blind panic :lol:

I seriously thought I was in for a full party wipe, I had no idea he would flee the battle at a certain point.
