Re: How much cash?

Sounds beautiful. But 7% property tax? Holy crow, what is that paying for? It just goes to show how different tax systems are from one place to another. Here in Canada, I've never heard of property taxes being more than 2%, although provincial [more]

Re: How much cash?

I'll just go back to the OP. I'm in a unique situation since I cashed out my 401K and rolled it to an IRA. I did this in April. I have been waiting for the inevitable correction that never seems to quite get here. As of right now I am 40% equities [more]

30 seconds after I had made the original post I thought, “Why didn't I put in Grim Fandango?” Add Grim Fandango to the list. Grim Fandango has an outside possibility due to it being remastered PS4, PS Vita, Windows, and Mac OS X. Maybe if the [more]

Re: XCOM - Long War Mod EW Beta

I’ll just give a quick AAR on the status of my campaign against the aliens in Long War. I’m about 11.5 months into it. If I remember correctly the vanilla campaign lasted about 15-18 months, so I would say that I am late mid game. I went through and [more]

Re: XCOM - Long War Mod EW Beta

Quick Advice for anyone trying this mod.
1) Save often as this game can and will punish you and it is still unforgiving even on Normal difficulty. It's not a bad idea to have a save before you set up your squad and another after the squad [more]

Re: XCOM - Long War Mod EW Beta

I posted earlier about the best counties to set your base in I should revise. Namely the air war is so important and so costly that North America would move up past Europe and Africa. Africa is still good, but one of the things about LW is that a [more]

Re: XCOM - Long War Mod EW Beta

Just a few more thoughts on the mod.

1) Exalt missions just suck. Some are kind of fun, like the small four man plus the operative. The full squad missions just turn into a big slugfest. I have nothing against a slugfest, except the upside [more]

Re: XCOM - Long War Mod EW Beta

I'll just throw in a few more ideas for starting in case anyone else gives the mod a try.

1. The continent that you start on is really important. South America is the only awful choice. North America is somewhat undesirable and Africa is [more]
