Can someone remind me - if I survive - is there a way for me to stop the USA going over to the aliens once this activity has begun? I vaguely recall you can if you shoot down all the UFOs, though I may have imagined that. Is it possible by sweeping the XL UFO clean or is all lost? I guess they could be building a base, but the landing sites are really spread out so I'm thinking infiltration instead.

Dunno if there is a way to stop a country from "defecting" once the wheels start turning, I seem to recall you can delay it at the recon stage. Cleaning out a UFO doesn't really do anything to the mission the aliens are performing except to give you points and loot.

Also can someone remind me if I can redirect the Skyranger to the two large UFOs on the way back and clear those out too?

Nope, can't be done - the transport needs to go back to base to refuel before it can go to another site. Can be done in Xenonauts though which is really nice.

One thing I don't like in the game is that the goodies you get from clearing a mission seem to arrive straight back in the stores before the Skyranger - is that right or am I imagining it?

Not sure offhand anymore, but it sounds correct. Pretty sure stunned aliens are placed in AC immediately after a mission so the same should be true for loot. ;)

Soppy as it sounds, what ever happens, I suppose now's a good time to point out - Hobbes, you've always done a really good job.  :)

Heck, personally I failed to maintain motivation after the first Firaxis release, and that went relatively smoothly. I don't deal well with change.

Hope the ladies didn't torture you, SV!

I ate too much turkey. Then I gave birth to one. Urgh.

Christmas is like a terror site,
When you arrive it's night,
Yet all seems alight,
And somewhere out of sight,
A shriek, a scream, oh delight,
Family is just where you thought it might,
Everyone, you find, is out for a bite,
Time only to fight the good fight,
I'll let you go, then, it's only polite...


Merry Christmas, ladies!

Dismissed!! Posted Image

No companion cube, sorry, didn't make it into episode 3.

But at least there is an episode 3.  Enjoy!

Been having a ton of fun with Enemy Within, thought I'd make some humorous videos to share.  As it turns out, GLaDOS is a perfect fit into the X-Com universe, and you will see from the following clips.

If only there was a mod for this... but hey you know what, the new Mechs are a close enough approximation!

Episode 1:

NEW Episode 2:

Episode 3:

Setting software vertex shading on solves the issue. Looks exactly the same but you do take a performance hit. I don't care much anyway \o/
