I've been playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown this week, which I got for free from PS Plus. I always thought the game looked interesting, or at least I thought it was very visually appealing, but the strategy genre always scares me away. Since it's free though, I figured, why not? After playing for a few days, I think I can safely say that this is the first strategy game I've ever really enjoyed playing. The strategy combat was very easy to learn and become comfortable with. Trying to manage funds back at the base can be a little more difficult and confusing, but I don't think I'm doing TOO bad. Although I did recently cause Germany and South Africa to back out of the Council, so that's probably not great. I'm still not sure exactly what that means for me, if it's a really bad thing or not, but oh well. Who needs Germany anyway, right?

I probably spent way too much time customizing all of my soldiers, and I've grown a bit too attached to my main four (Major Joshua Sisco, Colonel Dallas Multipass, Captain Thaddeus Grope, and Lieutenant Harry Sack). Multipass is the best member of my team; she's an assault class, and has miraculously only been wounded once. Sisco, on the other hand, seems to get very injured every time I use him, although he still dishes out tons of damage and manages to stay alive. He got the nickname "Doomsday" which I figured means he's always in the hospital.


Wait a second... who is Haugen?

I'm at the part of the game where you use a skeleton key to infiltrate an alien base. Not sure how far into the game that is, but I feel like I'm just scratching the surface. It also makes me want to go back and give some other strategy games a second chance, like Valkyria Chronicles. I wasn't really feeling the genre back when I tried to play that game the first time, but now I think I might enjoy it a bit more.

Anyway, in terms of recaps, this Friday was kind of meh. Not sure what everyone was up to today that kept you from blogging, but I'll assume you were all busy having fun with Friday Night Fights or Animal Crossing or something.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
