So I recently started playing XCom and have been failing miserably at it but have been thinking of making a Let's Play for it on the forum.

For those who have never heard of/ played this game before:

You run an organization funded by world governments to try to protect the Earth from hostile Aliens all of which have better weapons and equipment than you. The goal is to study their stuff (including them) and reverse engineer it which will hopefully let you have fewer casualties in the field.

FYI, I'm pretty sure a few people here have played X com before.

Give people a little more time to respond. tongue.gif

I've never played the games but I know some people are fans, so there is likely interest. Plus, well, half the forum will read practically any LP that's tossed at them.

Loved X-com but don't have a lot of interest in an LP of it. I usually keep track of LPs if they cover games I wouldn't/couldn't play myself.

They just don't always respond.

I like content made by friends. In fact, I will try to be better about responding. Research the shield tech and turtle up. I always want to turtle up.

Can you rename dudes in X-Com? I seem to remember that capability, but I can't remember anything for crap.

In any case, if you can rename dudes, obviously you need to name your people after forum members.

Easy way to get readers invested is to put them in it. tongue.gif

I first require volunteers for our expendable soldiers as well as a head Scientist and Chief Engineer.

If "aturtledoesbite" doesn't fit in the name box, then "Turtle" or "Turt" will do just as well.

Private Nifar, reporting for duty, sir! Hopefully I won't die in the first combat like last time, sir!

... I may or may not keep this typing quirk up in this thread, sir!
