Topic: Dune Plays: X-Com: Enemy Unknown; or, We Are All Pokémon Squaddies
Hello everyone! Dune here with a special project I've been planning for a while now that might just interest you.
I'm going to be playing X-Com: Enemy Unknown. But that's not all! I'll be playing it with nothing but fellow WAAPTers as squad members! And it'll be a completely blind run! What fun!
But Dune, I have never heard of this collection of 1's and 0's that you call a game! What is it about?
I'm glad you asked, convenient bold text! X-Com: Enemy Unknown is a turn based strategy game about a multinational project that is defending Earth from an army/navy of invading aliens. I will be taking the role of commander while all of you (yes, YOU) will be my instruments of tactical death on the field.
Golly Gee! What do I have to do to be a part of this?
First off, unless you're old enough that you remember when Kaiser Wilhelm was leader of Germany, you should never say "Golly Gee". Second, nothing really. I will attempt to have the names I give my Squaddies make sense (I.e. have FullMoon as a Brazilian) and gender-appropriate (though Eskay may be an exception). I make no guarantee that the class you get will make sense, however. Beri might end up being a Support for all I know. Otherwise, just pop in every once in a while to see how the troopers are doing and we'll go from there.
What if don't get a trooper in the first wave of recruits?
Sadly, that's bound to happen. However, all you have to do is wait until I Frillish thing up and get someone killed, and as long as I know you want a trooper, I'll try and accommodate. Also, let me know if you're cool for having the trooper only male, only female, or you don't really care.
So what now?
Now... I get through the tutorial. Sad, but true. Also, work, so the first mission won't be up until this afternoon. Until then, let me know what you think of the idea, and start placing bets as to whom dies first!
EDIT: Let's get this started!
