Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

It's my job to keep you alive. I will not succeed- not with all of you. [XCom LP III]

    Seeing as Rank is running around with nothing but primed grenades in his inventory, that is impossible.

    Standard primed grenade engagement protocol is not recommended inside X-Com Facilities.

    A human analogy could be made to Wubble Woo Base currently being the ultimate primed grenade.

    Keep it up, soldiers. I want alien blood up to my knees by dawn.

    Do not get shot. All wounded personnel will be assigned to blood-mopping duty after the battle.

    Now we just need for one of the Mutons to be killed by a falling hatrack.

    Before following any advice, opinions, or thoughts I may have expressed in the above post, I feel I should warn you: I found Keven Costners "Waterworld" to be a very entertaining film.

    Which, of course, disintegrates them.

    And the hatrack.

    And three Mutons nearby.

    Who all happen to have Blaster Launchers.

    The access lift provides too much cover for those muton bastards. Given the lack of blaster bombs there's only one other solution, and its a solution that fits many problems:

    Erase it in a hail of plasma fire!

    Hey now, no shooting the reserve pilots. You need us to, uh, fly you places, and uh, stuff.

    Besides, someone has to fly Rank around in the civilian jet to get his drugs/hookers.

    So glad I'm higher up the waiting list; it means I spend more time training on the Interceptor Simulator, and less time ferrying Rank about on his 'expeditions'.

    Also, I'm not worried about Theidar firing at us. Don't get me wrong; Theidar could easily blow us up... if they actually made the HWP in any way accurate. I guess the engineers intentionally made the hardware with poor aim in case the AI turned on us. It's like the launcher's loose or something...

    Note to self: when assigned an Interceptor, check that the weapons are actually attached properly, and not hanging on with blu-tack.

    ...Okay, guess I didn't take into account your AI compensating for the HWP's inate inaccuracy. Although, I'm surprised you've only fired it once...

    I still say it shouldn't have to compensate, though; should be a case of point, shoot, target new enemy. Speaking of poor engineering, Heavy Lasers - they take away the rapid fire from a Laser Rifle, increase the weight a load, and reduce the accuracy for a measly ~40% increase in output? Not to mention how much harder it is for our ground troops to use them. You would've thought they'd have figured out how to compensate for some of that by now...

    Hmm... maybe we could get the engineers to improve their methods of manufacturing with a little 'persuasion'...

    ...Like threatening to send Rank in there for a 'motivational speech'.
