Crossing the River
Sorry about the small size of the text (and the sheer abundance of it!) the story got away from me very quickly!
Well would you believe it, I actually Can't play XCom 2 at the moment. I have to upgrade my operating system to the latest version and honestly, since anything made by Apple (especially these days) is as buggy as crap for about the first six versions, I don't want to upgrade, especially as its my main computer where not only do I make all the stuff for this site, but do all my university work on and I can't be bothered trying to face the hassle of it all fucking up. Oh well, it will be played, but probably the same way I was forced to play the first one. Many months later.
In other random news, I'm on my 14th book so far this year. Currently reading 'Time of Contempt' by Andrzej Sapkowski. This is part of the series that the Witcher video games come from and they are a bloody good set of books, some of the best fantasy stuff I've read, kinda like the Metro 2033 of fantasy, but without the weird moralising, philosophy and psychological threats that marked that particular series. If you liked the game, you'll love the books, and if you haven't tried either, get out there and do it! I would say play the games from the start, but the first two are PC only and the first one has quite a difficult set of mechanics to work through, like most of the older RPGs out there. Witcher 3 is probably the best for gameplay, but you'll miss out on some fantastic stories if you just dive into that one!
Thanks to Ogrenix and Funfun74 for their comments. Good luck with the resistance, I'll see you on the battlefield soon!
