XCOM SQUAD IS GO by Endling XCOM SQUAD IS GO by Endling
Because when your world is being overrun by marauding aliens, who better to send to the front line than two highschoolers, a chain smoking degenerate from hell, a delusional asylum inmate with a denial complex and a SEVERE aversion to porridge, an out-of-work stuntman who can explode on command, and the soul of a madman grafted to a grimy bunny doll.

In other news, XCOM is an amazing game.

XCOM©2K, Firaxis Games
Ree and the rest©`Endling

For some reason I thought Rex would be the sniper, probably because Rex made me think of Wrex in mass effect and I linked his appearance to a humanized Garrus a bit. Anyhow great work^^

So Chiu is a colonel, but Philips is still just a corporal? Looks like you haven't been balancing your experience very well (tsk tsk)
Rex looks like the sort of Support who focuses more on smoke bombs and cover fire than actually healing people : )
And that Bunny guy... I certainly wouldn't want him to point a machine gun at me. Or any kind of gun. Or look at me.

This makes me want to draw some of the characters I had in the game. (Despite some of the customization limits the game had, I found my characters developing far more deeply (at least in my mind) than I would have expected from this sort of game.)

A comic strip of how cruel XCOM Enemy Unknown/Enemy Within is very much needed, those games can be so cruel

"Support?"?  So I guess he's a rifle-suppression build instead of a medic-grenadier.

My team is almost exactly the same, only difference is that I have 2 snipers instead of 2 supports. But goddammit my main Sniper is awesome. The only person who's been with me longer is Gonzalez but Gonzalez can't get hit anything for his life. Several times that was almost true. Meanwhile Brian 'Drifter' Morris here has somewhere around 70-80 kills (haven't finished the game yet) with more than half of them being crits. Ironic thing is... my best killer is Canadian.

Battles fought : 48
Battles won : 44
Battles lost : 4

Soldiers Lost : 42
One shot deaths : 18

And I genuinely cared for +/- 36 of those too. =(
Makes you want to try diplomacy... or artillery.

Every single greek (out of four) were just ridiculously great, and they all died heroes. (Earth would have never made it without you, Zeus.)
