More xcom 2 wotc long war mod.

Currently the game’s date is early may. Like the 7th or 8th at most. I have full lasers on all my squads and soldiers as far as I know. I’m also researching plated armor which should be extremely helpful and ready within a week or so. I could probably use more intel for getting new regions, scientists for research speed boosts and supplies for building facilities but im not sure. Since advent strength is so low at my main region I could probably put a new scientist on it to boost missions.

For some odd reason enemies don’t seem to want to go after my hq region despite doing a million missions there and most of my overall missions there. I did lots of supply missions, rescue personnel and other such missions but advent seems to go after all my other territories for some stupid reason. Oh well fine by me.

Also I’m on my way to liberating the region (South Africa) and I’m wondering with how lightly it’s defended I should probably get a new region for when I eventually can’t do any more missions at my hq.

More good news is of my 3 playthroughs this run seems to be going far better than the others and much faster too as well as usually with more missions being infiltrated at once. At peak numbers it was 4 at a time.

Well I got more supplies, more tier 2 armor and 1 more scientist in xcom 2 wotc long war mod. I’ll be playing the advent regional hq assault today and that might be it due to work schedule and getting enough sleep. If I succeed I get a lot of resources and enemy corpses to build more gear with as well as supplies. Ofc it could all go very wrong.

Also I need to get a good chunk more intel for contacting new regions. I’ve also lost some soldiers which I’d rather wish I hadn’t lost. I’m gonna have to replace them at some point.

Ok so very, very good news. The liberation of South Africa was a success. I’m currently getting my 5th region. I’ve gotten my 2nd liberation mission for Australia which if I succeed I can do advent relay and get a relay up and running. Of course that will be tough I think even if I manage to ambush advent patrol just fine which lowers advent strength in the region.

I’m also basically drowning in the most basic enemy corpses though I could use more stun lancer corpses so I can have enough good swords to go around.

I’ve also got about 6 scientists and 5 engineers now and almost all of my soldiers are at corporal level or above.

All of my soldiers have a laser weapon when they go on missions as well as about 20 sets of tier 2 armor to protect them. When you think about it that much armor alone costs 100 alloys and that’s fairly expensive in resources. Then I’m researching magnetic weapons too and those will help a significant amount.

As I said before this campaign is going well.

I spent today playing Elden Ring. I'd found it a bit hard to get into, but I think I've cracked it now. Just needed to get my hands on a Greatsword and upgrade it.

I had an experience in the Dragon Burnt Ruins that blew my mind, super "old school RPG" vibes which I'd already been picking up from it that really made me love the game. Part of me wishes fast travel wasn't so integral to the experience but I'm trying to ignore it where possible, back tracking is a real PITA though.

But christ, it's an absolutely huge game. I've finished every souls game so far (though I took the easy way out with Sekiro because I didn't love the rhythm game aspect to it) and I'm really starting to enjoy Elden Ring, but I wonder if I'd ever actually finish it?

It's not blowing my mind actually. It's probably been overhyped for me. How long did it take you to get to level 30?

Still trucking through Elden Ring. Decided I'm fine with NPC summons and "ash" summons. Normally I don't use summons in Fromsoft games, but I'm gonna take a more relaxed approach to this.

Loving the game so far! I don't think it's quite the game changer it was made out to be, it's Dark Souls 3 with a horse, jumping and a big open world. That's what I expected, that's what I'm getting and I'm happy with it. Weirdly, the large number of enemy groups and the sort of "quantity over quality" nature of the world design reminds me most of Dark Souls 2, but I quite like that game as well so I'm really happy with that.

DS1 is still my favourite, but this is a great addition.

Still rocking out with WH40K: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters.

Killed the first of presumably 5 Great Unclean Ones. Was a fun fight where you get swarmed by Nurglings and you have to destroy their little spawn points while avoiding the GUO’s attacks. The Nurglings also heal the GUO, so you have to get them quick or you’ll get swamped. Took it out with no serious damage to my “A Team” squad. The GUO’s dialogue was excellent.

Got a full crew of 20 Grey Knights, a mostly upgraded Battleship and about 2/3rds of research done. My Knights: 1 Chaplain, 1 Librarian, 1 Paladin, Castellan Crowe, 2 Purifiers, 3 Apothecaries, 3 Interceptors, 3 Purgators and the rest are Justicars. My “Gotta get it done A Team” is max level and built fairly balanced. I use them for the tough story missions. The other 15 are leveling up every few missions under Castellan Crowe’s watchful eye, depending on whats called for.

Aside from a bit of repitition in missions+maps, a few bugs and a fairly archaic save game menu, think this is my front runner for 2022 Game of the Year. There is alot of potential in expansions and followups. Great fun.

Its making me want to paint Grey Knights or Death Guard…

I'd be surprised if we don't see a Khorne DLC. The models are already half-done just from the tutorial mission. It'd be a shame if they don't bring the rest of the faction in.

Question: Did you mean level 30 on world of warcraft or on the Witcher? I can't remember how long it took me to get to 30 on the Witcher. As for WoW TBC, probably a couple of weeks.


I bought the Age of Empires III definitive edition a while ago when it came out but to be honest I barely played any. However, I saw the other day that they've released new civilisations so I thought I'd pick up the Italian and Malta DLC. Only £7.99 so I figured what the hey.

I gotta tell you it's an absolute blast. Loads of new maps set in Europe, with new 'native' units. I played a skirmish last night as the Italians and it was a total refresh for me. Definitely will carry on playing when I'm not on wow.

The last mission of Chaos Gate: Daemonhunters has me evaluating my skill choices, going way back to when my main squad's heart and soul, a sword and board Paladin was level 4(of 9).

They give you ample warning that the mission is coming, but I wasn't ready. Been great fun, though. I'm going to give it a few more tries tonight before I try something drastic.

To my own surprise I’ve been doing a lot of Valheim lately. Continued on my solo world and I’m some 600 days in. It’s very chill to just hang around the base, finish up building projects and such. Then I go on adventures every now and then to gather materials. All my pigs where killed by slime so I also spent some time taming new ones. Gotta day Valheim is one of my favorite chill/zone out games.

Horizon Forbidden West got a big update today with new game + (finally) as well as new armor dyes, weapons, trophies, even a whole new difficulty. Probably gonna boot that up tonight, but I'm a little worried I'll lose 2 months of my life to it again!

Anyone with a ps5 who likes open world RPGs should absolutely give it a shot if you haven't already, the game is excellent.

Playing more Surviving the Aftermath. It's generally a fun game. But there's one really big thing that bugs me, and that's the way that the game handles the population - particularly families (which don't exist in the game). The game tracks population by one of three age groups - kids, adults, and elderly (adults who are too old to reproduce). This is fine. The problem comes in because the game doesn't recognize family units. Everyone is just thrown into the general population mix. So when your population gets happy enough, they start reproducing. That means that you quickly run out of enough housing due to the rate that new kids get created. And because your new kids are the newest members of the population, they end up homeless. Surviving Mars (also published by Paradox) does the same thing (but adds residences that are only for kids), and I find it very annoying. In real life, family units form. And kids stay with their parents until they're old enough to move out on their own.

It's not that hard to handle in a somewhat proper fashion. Banished, which is similar in playstyle if not theme, does a good job of it. In that game, if there's a free house, then a man and a woman will pair off and move in. They'll form a family unit and start having kids. Those kids will stay in the house until they grow up, and then leave if a different house becomes available. The drawback is that you can end up with an elderly widow or widower living alone in a big house, which leaves you with unused housing space. But it's a better and more realistic way to handle this sort of thing, imo. Population growth can't exceed the number of existing houses, and you don't end up with every new infant wandering the streets.

South Park, the Stick of Truth.

It is a very silly game. If you like RPGs, and have appreciation for South Park’s sense of humour, you’ll love this game.

It is pretty linear and short (it’s loose sequel, Fractured But Whole is the better game), but still pretty satisfying to play.

Took over the advent regional hq in long war of the chosen mod for xcom 2: wotc and i think i'm doing sorta ok. Ofc i have a lot less men now, soldiers are wounded and i'd do well to branch out even more. I have 5 regions now.

All this said i feel my accomplishments this game are kinda pitiful. I have full mags and should be able to start elerium research fairly soon.

At least the region i liberated has a lot of rebels collecting supplies and it's not in huge danger of being assaulted too soon.

Anyway not much else to cover. I'd really like to liberate another area if that's even possible any time soon.
