Yup, I was annoyed when things started getting released for Vista and above but it's just progress mate. The reason for it is obviously down to the amount of extra time and money the developers would've had to put into the game in order to ensure it runs smoothly on another OS. You might say 'yeah but the fans have already fixed it' but have the fans also carried out extensive QA into the game running on XP? I doubt it... Given that QA of the game is not one of it's strong points in the first place, I'm REALLY pleased they didn't try and please everyone by just slapping it onto any OS people asked for. XP is still the best Windows in my opinion but it's just dated now so you need to upgrade if you want to keep gaming. You know you can't have DX11 on XP either right? Skip Vista, it's a pile of crap, 7 isn't all that bad though
Again with assault troops, only time I ever used them was at the very start of the game befor eI had a strategy of any kind and in the alien base mission as I thought it would be more enclosed than it was. I agree run n gun is a nice skill but I just find they have to put themselves in way too much danger to be useful to the squad. Personally, I think I'm doing pretty badly if enemies are within 4 squares of me
could be great on a Chryssalid encounter though!
As an ender... How many people have taken on the battleship? Need I say more :s

Some of us are old enough to have an interest in the non Win7 classics you know.
Umm... We ALL are mate... That's why we were excited about this game...
Besides if you've known for months that XP wouldn't run this game why not just upgrade? To me, the fact that you'd rather never play the game than get a much needed upgrade is kind of ridiculous...
