Being the last comic for the year I thought I’d spend some quality time on it. Plus the 20 odd hours I’ve sunk into XCOM demanded it’s own recognition. I actually had more fun when sharing a single player game with my brother, discussing what we wanted to research and debating tactics. Jumping straight into Ironman mode was pretty intense too. When the soldiers you’ve trained up and named start dying the freak-out is awesome.
On my own game at home I have this sniper, Liang Hu from China, who just destroys anything on the map while floating about in the air near the landing zone.
Play this game.
As an end of year bonus, and because this comic was a little more involved than the usual, here’s a look at my photoshop layers. If you’re interested in that kind of thing.
I still don’t know what Squinkies is…
And don’t worry mum, it’s temporary.
In other news, this is the third to last comic for this year and in this current comic format. I’ll be embarking on a new, more terrifying, journey in the new year, complete with story arcs and new characters etc. So look out for that.
You could also have a look at my friend Mike’s “open source” Caveman vs Mammoth miniatures game. Or get a sneak peek at a newer, more streamlined, and not to mention hilarious Caveman vs Mammoth game that we’ve been working on just by visiting WWPD. (Hint: It’s near the end of the post.)
