    So Fishman, do you actually not know what the "lobster spiders" are or was that just a nickname?

    honestly though it annoyed me so much that I pretty much immediately modded the game, rather than use the default gene soldier models

    They do, but 1 or 2 armour variants with some armour on shoulders and elbows look okayish and the heart upgrade kept my favourite sniper alive once so it gets a pass on the looks.

    I don't like robots

    And whenever I fielded a MEC in X-Com it got shot to pieces and was more trouble than it was worth

    Like, I liked being able to punch dudes through walls, but needing two support dudes on staff just to keep everyone healthy sucked

    MECs are unlimited cover destroying machines. They're great.

    MECs are also way more balanced and not-game-breaking than certain gene mods like the cloaking one

    The cloaking gene mod was fucking ridiculous, most others weren't that great.

    Mecs were potentially awesome, but needed to be used correctly. Things like the AOE heal were insane. The flamethrower was pretty nuts too. I think people thought they were just supposed to be tanks though, and if you use them as tanks they'd get annihilated.

    Cloaking gene mod is probably the best

    The eyes one that gives you a bonus to your next shot I really liked throwing on my heavies

    The regeneration one was pretty great

    And jumping was nice if you didn't want to necessarily have your folks wearing grapple armor (although ghost armor was great)

    MECs were my favorite part of the expansion. I loved making them as mobile as possible and giving them rocket boots so that they could just book it to the nearest rooftop and rain down death from above

    How was it different from the one we have now?

    Also yes, while I currently use a soldier with mimetic skin it shure is too good compared to other mods. Especially together with a squad sight sniper.

    Mimetic skin is the most expensive augmentation by far, so it's not like they recognize that it's super powerful.

    I haven't played Loren despite getting it in a bundle a long time ago, but I do appreciate that the armor is equally skimpy for both the male AND female characters.

    i played Satellite Reign when it was in early access and when it first went 1.0 and it's pretty alright, though when it was in early access the AI was really buggy, and it doesn't seem to have improved. So as long as you dong' figure out how to make it bug out it's fine.

    You can't crit with it in the expansion unless you use Headshot. Think that was the only change, may be forgetting something, though.

    In Vanilla, yes. In Enemy Within, no. Snipers could still crit when enemies are within normal sight range (no crosshair icon), but could not crit when using squadsight.

    No, it couldn't. If you crit squad sight in the expansion, it's because you weren't using squadsight. This is a thing you can actually look up.

    I bought the standard edition at retail

    and I'm fairly sure I've seen an option to upgrade to the digital deluxe edition. I can't seem it find it now, though.

    It might be missing due to the sale.

    edit: glancing around, I ended up at this page for the Heart of the Swarm Digital Deluxe package. The "buy now" button currently redirects to the store page for the 3-game complete collection, which also has a digital deluxe edition. I do not appear to receive a discount for owning the retail deluxe edition and retail standard edition of WoL and HotS respectively.

    Given the verbiage on the page, I imagine you used to be able to upgrade from the digital standard edition to the digital deluxe for a reduced price. Whether you will be able to do so again in the future is not known.

    Operation Enduring Priest
    A pretty straight forward landing mission; a Scout was detected on the ground in Japan, and Der Waffle Mous, Platypus Beirut, msuitepyon, and Metalbourne were dispatched to deal with it.

    2015-09-19_00002_zpslfzu4evr.jpg

    They encountered Sectoids...

    2015-09-19_00003_zps11uzkiwg.jpg

    ... Seekers ...

    2015-09-19_00005_zpsabcq2jfr.jpg

    ... Floaters...

    2015-09-19_00012_zpsypu4yqch.jpg

    .. and an Outsider.

    2015-09-19_00008_zpsq7ic9jze.jpg

    ...but it was all pretty straight forward and despite a couple minor flesh wounds the most notable outcome was the fact that msuitepyon got the nickname 'Moose', which just tickled my funnybone for some reason.

    2015-09-19_00013_zpswksgaglw.jpg

    Two in the infirmary for a week, but the only thing of note that happened while they were in bed was the council report:
    2015-09-19_00015_zps7phwsavo.jpg

    Australia pulled out, the dirty xeno-loving species traitors. But overall, it's a good haul of cash for our reserves*.

    We were also offered 5 Engineers for some Seeker corpses, so if any reports of technologically advanced ghost tentacle machines start coming out of Egypt, know that I compromised Earth's political and military stability for the chance to build brighter, shinier objects and also clear out our dead alien storage at the same time.

    *: I immediately spent it all.

    Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Der Waffle Mous show, starring everyone's favourite defender of humanity, Mous!
    Also appearing Metalbourne, Platypus Beirut, and msuitepyon

    And this week's antagonists, Floaters!

    2015-09-20_00009_zpsffsxt3i4.jpg

    Our uninvited extra-terrestrial guests have dropped into Bloemfontein uninvited, where they've been making themselves unwelcome by abducting local citizens. But don't worry, gentle audience, for Trooper Der Waffle Mous can do it all!

    He can shoot them to the left!

    2015-09-20_00007_zpse1kaxrp4.jpg

    He can shoot them to the right!

    2015-09-20_00002_zpsai9eyf6q.jpg

    At one point Metalbourne runs into an odd Sectoid who apparently got lost on his way to outer space, but she scores points by putting that poor Sectoid to sleep. Isn't it nice when friends help out?

    2015-09-20_00008_zpscuoydvzc.jpg

    Unfortunately Platypus Beirut doesn't have the same luck, uncharacteristically missing an easy shot in the open street.

    2015-09-20_00014_zpsjuelahyi.jpg

    Which both he...

    2015-09-20_00019_zps8zak5bcs.jpg

    ... and Metalbourne pay the price for.

    2015-09-20_00015_zps9txpuile.jpg

    But it's okay, ladies and gents, for Der Waffle Mous is ever ready, and can heal all wounds.

    2015-09-20_00021_zpsyvebuqye.jpg

    2015-09-20_00029_zpsrqea9ggh.jpg

    Der Waffle Mous then locates and pins down a rogue Floater while grabbing the last Meld canister (having already grabbed the first one earlier in the mission).

    2015-09-20_00022_zpsqtl5pmbc.jpg

    Magnanimously, he lets msuitepyon deal with the poor creature.

    2015-09-20_00027_zps0ockhd6u.jpg

    And having tracked down the final Xeno, chased it through a wall, and reduced it to a gibbering wreck in a far corner, he gives Platypus Beirut the opportunity to make up for his earlier miss and put the tortured beast out of its misery.

    2015-09-20_00031_zpsebyeyjgw.jpg

    Full marks for that one, today, Mous. MVP stuff. Time for a pack of gum and a coffee. You' earned it.

    2015-09-20_00034_zpsfovsrymc.jpg

    Unfortunately our only sniper is on the injured list until the middle of the month, and our best assault is out for a few days, too, but overall it's another mission where everyone's come through alive.
    Also, thanks to our sponsors and Doc Vahlen for putting together some shiny new armor for our troops in the field. Nice one, Doc.

    I guess it's pretty standard visual novel stuff (I never touch that stuff so idk)? The combat has some involvement, and I think you could affect the story through your actions somewhat?
    I'd wouldn't really recommend anyone to buy it, but otoh I really don't get the appeal of VN crap, but if you get hold of it for a pittance in a bundle or something, go ahead. There's at least a gameplay of sorts in the combat sections.

    I haven't been keeping up with the Bloodbowl 2 news (I've been getting emails as a BB1 player but I haven't been reading them) but I read the latest and apparently it's releasing this week. So my number 1 question is: is it less buggy? and with that, does it play smoother? Not like, graphically, but BB1 had a problem where I felt like the game wasn't very responsive. And moving the camera around was locked to the grid so it didn't have smooth scrolling. It felt clunky, has that been fixed?
