As you know I am working on the Fanfic of mine. For another, I happen to be playing a very popular game from Firaxis.
This is XCOM 2, the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Both are acclaimed games and
Like Star Trek, it features aliens from OUTER SPACE!!!!0.
Unlike Star Trek, where we buddy up and form a Federation, XCOM is about we go killing the aliens who have invaded Earth .
And it gets better in XCOM 2 because it starts with the Aliens having won conquering Earth....
Why am I talking about this? I wonder what is the sentiment of our paths or ideals. Star Trek is very utopian and ideal. XCOM... well, it feels real. Also I think at times I like how the combat goes in XCOM and especially XCOM 2 (I know its a turn based game but grenades, gatlings, swords, and hacking?? how can STO pull this off?)
PLus, killing aliens never felt sooooooooooooo good.
SO choose your side: XCOM or Starfleet?
(Interesting Note: I heard the Riker, Worf, Troi and Q voiced some of the characters in XCOM2's expansion. I got to play it as soon as I buy it on discount someday).
