XCOM: Enemy Within - Long War - Impossible Part 180
 
52:46
This episode can be called either MEC Commander or MEC Warriror ;) I've gathered all MEC classes into one mission. I've made another Marauder, and change perks as one person mentioned in few videos back then. I've also made another Jager, just to check other combination. I couldn't make 2 classes to MSGT level but that wouldn't make them any more different. Most of the classes hit their potential on SGT, TSGT level. My overall thoughts: 1. Marauder - weaker version of Assault class in offensive capabilities with buffed defensiveness. Making R&G and DF on same tier is no go for me. If your assault has good enough will for PSI, it's far more superior to Marauder 2. Valkyrie - sort of fair trade here, but strangely vs robotic enemies Heavy Plasma Rifle deals more damage. 3. Goliath - without DF is worse than Gunner. I know that it's toughness is highest of all MECs, but still one can survive only limited shots, and not to get shot is even better option. 4. Archer - this should be Goliath instead. The only bad thing about changing Rocketeer to Archer is loss of Blaster Launcher. With max 3 rockets Rocketeer is far more superior. Grenade Launcher and Proximity mines just don't compare to Blaster Launcher. 5. Shogun - this is true anti robotic unit. With Light 'Em Up and HEAT it will wreck Sectopods / Mechatoids to peaces. Excellent upgrade comparing to weak Engineer - the most useless class in my opinion 6. Guardian - nothing spectacular here - just more armoured medic. Body shield and Field Medic should not be in the same line. Though it is named guardian - there are little defensive skills - maybe they've mixed them up with Goliath? 7. Pathfinder - the only thing that I can say about Pathfinder is, that they clearly didn't have any idea what to put. Even on MSGT level when you get Lightning Reflexes, your standard assault will be still better. Even the standard scout is just failed shadow of assault. 8. Jaeger - it's a fair trade from sniper class. Good choice of perks, nice damage and shredder ammo will help deal with those tough mutons, and will help Shogun with even more damage against robotic units.

Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet’s last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order. Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all. XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. New open-ended gameplay lets you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations. RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan. TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts. Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by carrying them to the extraction point. A NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct tactical challenge. RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your preferred tactics. EACH MISSION IS A UNIQUE CHALLENGE: Go on missions around the world, from wildlands to the heart of the alien-controlled megacities, to the depths of alien installations. There are virtually infinite combinations of maps, missions and goals. CREATE CUSTOM MODS: Community-focused tools allow you to create your own campaign, tactical gameplay, aliens, classes, strategy game features, and share within the Steam Workshop. - - - - - XCOM 2 Soldier Class Descriptions: XCOM 2 Psi Operative: Depending on who you ask, psionics could be the aliens greatest strength. Now our own operatives can tap into that same power. XCOM 2 Ranger: The ranger serves as our primary reconnaissance unit. Capable of moving independently in concealment while engaging enemies at close range. XCOM 2 Sharpshooter: Our sharpshooters engage enemy targets with pinpoint accuracy from extreme range. They are also trained in pistol marksmanship for the occasional close encounter. XCOM 2 Specialist: Operating some of our most advanced equipment, specialists employ robotic drones called gremlins on the battlefield that can be outfitted for combat, or field medic duty. XCOM 2 Grenadier: Serving as our demolitions experts, the grenadiers provide heavy ordnance delivery whenever and wherever we need it. - - - - - XCOM 2 Steam Page for purchase and download: http://store.steampowered.com/app/268500/ XCOM 2 Website: https://xcom.com/ XCOM 2 DLC Reinforcement Pack Steam Page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/426321/ - - - - -

Wir sind immer noch bei unseren Mutons, die uns ganz schön Druck machen. aber wir schaffen es nun ein paar der Mutons zu erledigen und sind in einer deutlich besseren Position nun. Doch es waren noch nicht alle. Das SHVI bekommt auch etwas zu viel ab und ist leider nur noch Schrott. Aber es kostete uns wenigstens kein Soldaten. Der Guzman erreicht nach dem Einsatz auch das höchste PSI-Level und sind damit einschritt weiter. Es fehlt jetzt nur noch eine PSI-Rüstung. Zum Schluss bekommen wir auch noch ein Satelliten fertig und können den in die Luft bringen.

05:21
Welcome to my channel everyone, Good evening , Xcom 2 is finally here! We will push fighting this Alien threat for quite a while. I plan on playing through to the end of a normal game to learn for myself how the game works. After normal we move to a higher difficulty and play until we can finish an ironman game. With the community mods available this will extend how many different runs we accomplish. I will take on some of the challenging mods and will also be coming back every so often for the DLC's. Now i am debating with myself how much i can accomplish before either DS3 or the Division releases, those will be some of my future titles on my channel. but considering i now have 400 hours into Enemy within, Xcom 2 will probably get a similar treatment. As always my goal is to learn enough to share tips that will help others clear this game, considering that only 27% of players had finished Enemy within on steam. This time we need to up those odds, so that others can appreciate the game as it should be. This game gets better the more you play it. Don't forget to like and subscribe, i am very active with uploading videos. I live stream a minimum of 5 nights a week and once i am well versed in a game i start to release guides that will help you with some of these difficult games. Come join us, if we can recruit more of you in our army, we will make room if we have too. We now have 14 viewers among our ranks. Our ranks are still growing; Gorgax Sniper Krater Souls Sniper Zedified Gunslinger Grandpa Ranger Ronjn Ranger KevinTV Ranger Meteor Impact Grenadier Starforce Heavy Gunner Zane Medic Richard Hacker Nick Hacker Voodoo Psi Nemesis Psi FiveBy9 Rookie Spooky Rookie Skully Rookie Starlet Rookie Scarlet Psi Bear Heavy Monkey Ranger Adjua Rookie

XCOM 2 War of the Chosen was just announced. Let's talk about how it will affect the forces and allies of XCOM. Topics of discussion include Heroes, Resistance Factions, bonding between soldiers, covert actions, base building, and more. Please feel free to share comments whether questions or suggestions. If you enjoy it, please consider giving it a like or share so others can find it.

XCOM® 2: War of the Chosen adds extensive new content in the fight against ADVENT when additional resistance factions form in order to eliminate the alien threat on Earth. In response, a new enemy, known as the “Chosen,” emerges with one goal: recapture the Commander. This expansion includes new Hero classes to counter the “Chosen”, new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth in strategic gameplay. NEW FACTIONS & HERO CLASSES Three additional factions have emerged to strengthen Earth's resistance – the Reapers, Skirmishers and Templars – each with its own unique abilities and contrasting philosophies. These factions provide powerful hero class soldiers to aid in missions and new opportunities for the strategy layer. THE CHOSEN The Chosen are the most cunning enemies XCOM has ever faced, each with unique strengths and weaknesses that will be introduced with each new campaign. The Chosen are on the hunt for the Commander and will kidnap, interrogate, and kill XCOM’s soldiers to complete their objective. The Chosen can also invade the strategy layer and ravage XCOM’s global operations. Find and raid the Chosen’s strongholds to defeat the enemy for good. NEW ALIEN & ADVENT THREATS A deadly new alien known as the Spectre, capable of creating dark copies of XCOM soldiers, has snuck onto the battlefield. Adopt new tactics to counter it as well as the explosive attacks of the ADVENT Purifier and the psionically charged ADVENT Priest. NEW ENVIRONMENTS AND MISSION OBJECTIVES Engage in tactical missions across new environments from abandoned cities devastated by alien bioweapons during the original invasion, to underground tunnels and xenoformed wilderness regions. ENHANCED STRATEGY LAYER Manage XCOM’s relations with factions and counter The Chosen’s operations from the Avenger. Employ new Resistance Orders to prioritize your personal strategy. Soldiers, scientists, and engineers can now be deployed for Covert Actions that award supplies and boost faction favor if successfully completed. GREATER CUSTOMIZATION & REPLAYABILITY Soldiers can develop bonds with compatible teammates for new abilities and perks. The SITREP system dynamically adds new modifiers to the tactical layer to make sure every mission provides a unique challenge. Advanced campaign options allow for finer adjustments to game length and difficulty. CHALLENGE MODE Utilize the perfect strategy in new regular one-shot community challenges to claim the top spot on the global leaderboard. SHARE THE RESISTANCE Customize and pose your soldiers, then add filters, text and backgrounds to generate your own unique resistance posters that appear in-game and can be shared with friends. XCOM 2: The Story So far - Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet's last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order. Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.

XCOM: Long War (Beta 15) Semi-Qualified Ironman Impossible: Part 67 -- The Bigger They Are...
 
31:00
On this episode: Adonis Smith, Karin Hartmann, Teddle Todd, Peter Van Doorn, Black Monk, Tom Dudley, OnePiece Ship, and Ted Wres return to our favorite bronzeman scrubmode map, otherwise known as the place we picked up that weird Exalt defector before we knew what Exalt was. There we see some meatheads eating what remains of Exalt's bodies, presumably for massive gains. ___ Previous Episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pY8jzhZZGc Next Episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNaXCiAXFYs ___ Welcome viewer to my Xcom: Long War Beta 15 Unqualified Ironman Impossible campaign! What do these words even mean? For starters, I'm playing with the Long War mod (beta 15) which adds a whole lot of stuff to vanilla Xcom: Enemy Within while also making the game much longer and harder. Second, I'm playing on Impossible difficulty with Ironman mode enabled, which means that there's no going back when I screw up or the game decides to activate 20 aliens on me at once. I'm also INCREDIBLY UNDER QUALIFIED to be doing this challenge, so you should be watching this for comedic value rather than strategic advice. I really just wanted to see how well an average Xcom player can hold up against Long War's Ironman Impossible. So sit back, try not to freak out when a rookie's face melts off, and enjoy the train wreck! DISCLAIMER: I do have Bronzeman enabled, HOWEVER it's power will only be used to fix bugs that prevent me from completing missions. If a soldier dies because enemies came pre-activated I will sit and bitterly curse at the game but I won't restart. If you ever see me abuse that power call me out on it. DISCLAIMER 2: As much as I'd love for this to be a daily series, that probably isn't going to happen since my time to record is often limited. I'll try my best to update when I can! I'll also gladly add you to my soldier list if you ask, and provided I have enough rookies left to name. I won't be naming established characters, their fates are sealed.

This is unbalanced, don't do it if you feel like it is ruining your game. Lets end this tomorrow!

Starcraft 2 - A Sinister Turn Walkthrough Gameplay PC
 
35:32
Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty - A Sinister Turn Walkthrough Gameplay PC Difficulty: Hard A Sinister Turn is the second mission in the Zeratul line. Zeratul has discovered the fragments of the Xel'Naga prophecy, and is now taking them to the Preservers on Zhakul so they can be deciphered. Primary Objectives Power up the 6 Protoss buildings in the encampment. Free the 3 Preservers. Guide At the beginning of the mission, you will be prompted to power up the unpowered buildings of your main base by creating Pylons. Soon after, the real objective is revealed. You must free the Preservers, who have been frozen in stasis prisons. However, the Zerg/Protoss hybrid Maar along with the Zhakul Protoss will try to stop you. Maar will periodically attack your base alone. He is extremely powerful, initially having 800 Shields and 800 Hit Points. When you destroy him, he takes some time to regenerate, and then attacks again. When he attacks a second time, he'll have 1000/1000. On the every attack after, he'll have 1400/1400. On later attacks, he will cast spells as well, including a spell that lifts several of your units and inflicts damage on them, blink, and a spell that can destroy buildings easily. He can be countered just by a mix of Zealots/Stalkers/Immortals. On Hard and Normal, it is easy to defend against Maar if you use a thick wall of Photon Cannons, replacing the ones Maar destroys. Keep lots of probes mining and one to warp in cannons. After establishing your base, you should build up a force to defend the initial attacks the enemy will send at you. Once you've been attacked from both sides of your camp, you should move out to capture the Dark Shrine and Robotics Facility, which will give you 2 Dark Templar and an Immortal, respectively, after being powered up. Be wary of an attack from the South which will eventually destroy the Robotics Facility unless you set units to guard it. Rebuilding it in your base instead is another option. You'll probably want to destroy the base on the right side of the map that guards the Templar Archives, as you'll most likely want a few High Templar for Feedback and Psionic Storm. Feedback won't stop Maar from using all of his spells, as he's able to cast his levitation spell despite having only a little energy, but they'll at least do damage against him. Be cautious with your High Templar, as they will frequently be the first to be killed by Maar. Your main army should consist of primarily Stalkers, as the enemy employs Void Rays against you, which can pick off your units with ease without sufficient anti-air. Make sure to maintain a good mix of Immortals and Zealots too, as you'll be seeing Stalkers, Archons, Sentries, and Zealots. This army should be able to crush the base to the east, but on harder difficulty settings be careful as Maar attacks more frequently. Be prepared to break off your attack to save your base if necessary. Taking out the base in the southwest might actually be more trouble than it is worth. It is guarded by a large force, including High Templar which rip apart your units with Psionic Storm. Instead, consider heading straight for the Stasis Prisons. The main Zhakul base is also heavily guarded, and Maar will almost certainly spawn while you're laying siege to it, only adding to your troubles. Therefore, the best strategy will be to just take out some of the forces hitting your units, and beeline straight for the Stasis Tanks. Ignore all fire while focus firing them down. You should be able to take them down in a few attacks. There is one advantage to taking out both side-bases since if you do so you can simply build a large army which guards the bridge out of the enemy base and overwhelm the opponent. Once the side bases have been eliminated this mission becomes very simple. Sidequests Power up the 3 Protoss buildings. There are three Protoss buildings on the map: A Robotics Facility, a Dark Shrine, and a Templar Archives. Their locations are revealed to you near the beginning of the mission. The Robotics Facility and Dark Shrine are only lightly guarded, but the Templar Archives is guarded by a Protoss base. You'll have to take it out if you want access to High Templar. You'll want to use an army consisting primarily of Immortals with some Stalkers and Zealots mixed in if you want to level the base. Be sure to keep your Stalkers safe, as there are a few Void Rays guarding the base as well.

About time I started to try these guys out isn't it, ages ago they got unlocked. Also explosions and sectopods and such. The usual XCOM 2 has arrived! This is episode 33 of a full playthrough. This is a let's play of XCOM 2 blind (I've been avoiding pretty much any and all spoilers as best I've been able to) on Commander difficulty, ironman style. My playstyle is fairly aggressive for the most part, only slowing down when I really have. I'm a big user of explosives so if seeing aliens get exploded to bits is your thing, this might just be for you. Full playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdmB5sqUfTbl-yKCnLAZj2p4B2fb77bmx --- XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year. Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet’s last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order. Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all. --- XCOM 2 was developed by Firaxis.

For Those Who Don t t B Believe In C Conspiracies Here Are 58 Admitted False Flag Attacks http://educateinspirechange.org/alternative-news/dont-believe-conspiracies-58-admitted-false-flag-attacks/ False flag terrorism occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people.

My Friend Irma: Aunt Harriet to Visit / Did Irma Buy Her Own Wedding Ring / Planning a Vacation
 
01:13:00
My Friend Irma, created by writer-director-producer Cy Howard, is a top-rated, long-run radio situation comedy, so popular in the late 1940s that its success escalated to films, television, a comic strip and a comic book, while Howard scored with another radio comedy hit, Life with Luigi. Marie Wilson portrayed the title character, Irma Peterson, on radio, in two films and a television series. The radio series was broadcast from April 11, 1947 to August 23, 1954. Dependable, level-headed Jane Stacy (Cathy Lewis, Diana Lynn) began each weekly radio program by narrating a misadventure of her innocent, bewildered roommate, Irma, a dim-bulb stenographer from Minnesota. The two central characters were in their mid-twenties. Irma had her 25th birthday in one episode; she was born on May 5. After the two met in the first episode, they lived together in an apartment rented from their Irish landlady, Mrs. O'Reilly (Jane Morgan, Gloria Gordon). Irma's boyfriend Al (John Brown) was a deadbeat, barely on the right side of the law, who had not held a job in years. Only someone like Irma could love Al, whose nickname for Irma was "Chicken". Al had many crazy get-rich-quick schemes, which never worked. Al planned to marry Irma at some future date so she could support him. Professor Kropotkin (Hans Conried), the Russian violinist at the Princess Burlesque theater, lived upstairs. He greeted Jane and Irma with remarks like, "My two little bunnies with one being an Easter bunny and the other being Bugs Bunny." The Professor insulted Mrs. O'Reilly, complained about his room and reluctantly became O'Reilly's love interest in an effort to make her forget his back rent. Irma worked for the lawyer, Mr. Clyde (Alan Reed). She had such an odd filing system that once when Clyde fired her, he had to hire her back again because he couldn't find anything. Useless at dictation, Irma mangled whatever Clyde dictated. Asked how long she had been with Clyde, Irma said, "When I first went to work with him he had curly black hair, then it got grey, and now it's snow white. I guess I've been with him about six months." Irma became less bright as the program evolved. She also developed a tendency to whine or cry whenever something went wrong, which was at least once every show. Jane had a romantic inclination for her boss, millionaire Richard Rhinelander (Leif Erickson), but he had no real interest in her. Another actor in the show was Bea Benaderet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Friend_Irma_%28radio-TV%29 Katherine Elisabeth Wilson (August 19, 1916 -- November 23, 1972), better known by her stage name, Marie Wilson, was an American radio, film, and television actress. She may be best remembered as the title character in My Friend Irma. Born in Anaheim, California, Wilson began her career in New York City as a dancer on the Broadway stage. She gained national prominence with My Friend Irma on radio, television and film. The show made her a star but typecast her almost interminably as the quintessential dumb blonde, which she played in numerous comedies and in Ken Murray's famous Hollywood "Blackouts". During World War II, she was a volunteer performer at the Hollywood Canteen. She was also a popular wartime pin-up. Wilson's performance in Satan Met a Lady, the second film adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's detective novel The Maltese Falcon, is a virtual template for Marilyn Monroe's later onscreen persona. Wilson appeared in more than 40 films and was a guest on The Ed Sullivan Show on four occasions. She was a television performer during the 1960s, working until her untimely death. Wilson's talents have been recognized with three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: for radio at 6301 Hollywood Boulevard, for television at 6765 Hollywood Boulevard and for movies at 6601 Hollywood Boulevard. Wilson married four times: Nick Grinde (early 1930s), LA golf pro Bob Stevens (1938--39), Allan Nixon (1942--50) and Robert Fallon (1951--72). She died of cancer in 1972 at age 56 and was interred in the Columbarium of Remembrance at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_Wilson_%28American_actress%29

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks
 
12:23
My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)
