Do not go gentle into that good night (XCOM 2 LP)

Comrades! Are you tired of living under an oppressive alien regime? Feel like punching some extraterrestrial nazis, and flinging milkshakes and/or bullets at them? Or do you simply grow weary of life and wish you could die a noble death, disintegrating under a hail of hot plasma? Then today is your lucky day, because the Resistance is currently recruiting sacrifices volunteers for the meat grinder war to liberate our beautiful planet, and we need YOU. Yes, you. Specifically you!

Many moons ago I did an XCOM: Enemy Unknown LP, and people here made playing that game way more fun, so now I'm gonna do it again with XCOM 2. The last one took me a year to complete because I was terrible, this one might take even longer because I've only gotten worse as I've got older, but it also might be over really quickly because I'm basically going in blind.

Make a sign up post if you want to go to war and star in a badly written XCOM fanfic. I will endeavour to make your soldier look how you want, if you give me a description.

    Always happy to volunteer to eat hot alien plasma.

    Appearance wise, the most epic beard available, and some glasses.

    As is traditional, Dutch people have to wear orange. Even when engaged in extraterrestial guerillla combat. Slicked back hair, glasses and a short beard.

    A few things that make this more fun:

    Enable the international voices setting. This is mostly for you, but having all the Xcomerinos babble in different languages is pretty neat

    Go wild on cosmetic mods

    Remember you can edit a soldier pool before you start a game, which will, with the right settings, pick scientists, engineers and soldiers from that list at random. No need to hand edit people in.

    A full Xcom2 run with all DLC enabled, blind, is a pretty crazy and long ride. You'll be unlocking new things, good and bad, just about every map. Story maps tend to be long. I seem to recall 45-60 missions on wins? it's been a while.

    The Mod "[WotC] Gotcha Again" greatly clarifies line of sight markers. All this information is given to a player anyway, just poorly. This mod reduced my "frustrated by making a bad decision because of UI" events by a lot. (Like how it's hard to judge a certain big purple swirly area of effect) It changes no actual gameplay. (There is an edge case issue where very rarely it betrays a pod that is 1 tile into the mist)

    The timers in Xcom2 are pretty strict. Especially when difficulty increases. If you want to play a little more forgiving game, mod them down a few notches.

    I've been perpetually in the process of maybe eventually playing a full game of xcom2 myself for the past... oh, ever since I got it. Never finished. Maybe this will get me to take that final step by proximity.
