Honest Game Trailers: XCOM

XCOM

In a world where killer aliens battle special forces, one commander will rise to lead the humans to victory - by constantly reloading a save file

Does he actually do the voice of the councilman? THAT'S AWESOME!

"X COME ON! How did I miss that?!"

Sums up the game on Impossible perfectly. Tactics only carrying you so far when random numbers seem to fall on the side of "Kick the player in the teeth" over and over, no matter what the odds are.

I was only able to beat Enemy Unknown due to a large amount of save scumming.

And I say that with very little shame.

XCOM was everything I could have hoped for in todays reboots then XCOM2 came out. I dont know if I can ever go back.

Well, next time I play XCOM it's gonna be interesting.

"In a world where elite special forces dudes can't hit a huge target 2 meters away, you are the only person who can stop the alien menace, AKA the RNG"

Danm, he has certainly moved up in his career!

I remember him doing Optimus Prine in his Youtube video, then he became the honesttrailer voice guy, does narration for minor film trailers and now this and more!

Man that ending for XCOM: EU sounds like a rip-off. It reminds me of he TVTrope Heads I Win, Tails You Lose.

And save-scumming: not just for KOTOR's pazaak minigame anymore.
