Am I really the only one that plays XCom?
I have to squee a bit, guys
XCom2 is one of my favorite all time games. It's half TBS and half resource management, and is thematically awesome.
So like the first XCom is that you were an internationally sponsored force set up to fight off an alien invasion. XCom2 starts under the assumption that you lost the first game, and now you're a rag-tag resistance force fighting off an alien occupation.
But the game is brutal. It's like Dark Souls tier of punishing you for your mistakes. Unlike Dark Souls, though, there are mechanics to make it easier if you want -- there's difficulty settings and it allows save scumming.
Random trailer to show the thematics/style: https://youtu.be/ryOfZv0JjIg
Random let's play to show off TBS portion of gameplay: https://youtu.be/6cjEDFEJbjo?t=6m20s
It's hard to really show off the resource management part of the game, as that's not something that interesting to watch.
Anyway yeah I highly recommend people check it out.
