    I'm about to have to start again for the second time on Normal. There seems to be an extreme difficulty spike after the first five or so missions, unless I'm missing something. Chrysalids and cyberdiscs can both one-shot my soliders (in Carapace Armour) pretty consistently so as soon as they turn up it's game over :(

    @neilka They are hard as nails, you just have to become a lot more cautious, Overwatch everything everywhere, reload between fights, if you run out of ammo switch to pistols during fights (no action cost), use smoke grenades and suppression a lot, if you think a fight is going to go south then stick a rocket in it.

    The SHIV is your {disposable} friend, send it in first :)

    This makes me happy - sounds bang on advice from the original.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Her first mission. Take a bow :)

    It's quite tense, isn't it? Is there an icon that shows which aliens are in overwatch? Sometimes I run into the open and get shot.

    It should show you as part of the aliens move.

    @Trafford they also seem to have a reaction shot where it hasn't specifically told you they are in overwatch, had this a few times to.

    Yep it unlocks midnight, check the store page on Steam where it'll tell you "in around 5 hours".

    The update probably explains why Steam has DOWNLOADED ALL 12 GIG OF MY PRELOAD AGAIN!

    Thank fuck VM just throttle me to 30 meg when I download that much at this time of the day.

    Can we all stand and salute Cpt. Jack 'Garrote' O'Neill. He was a fantastic sniper. Survivor of 12 Missions and Killer of 17 aliens. He was cruelly taken from the world at the hands of a Muton. However, this was not in vain. As a result of his bravery and valour, we managed to capture said Muton alive. We will now conduct hideous experiments on this creature whilst thinking of you Jack. :)

    RIP Jack O'Neill.

    Killer of 17 aliens.

    That trooper needs a statue outside the XCOM HQ.

    Patch notes:

    We wanted to let you know the details for the PC update for XCOM: Enemy Unknown that went live today (10/11/12). I've included the notes on this patch below:

    Various visibility/hiding optimizations
    Multiplayer text chat support (press J to activate)
    Mouse button 4/5 will switch soldiers in the Barracks
    ESC hides the movement grid, if you do not want to commit to a move while it is activated
    Squad Sight ability optimization
    Fixed issue when equipping two grenades with Deep Pockets.
    Fixed Rapid Fire sometimes consuming too much ammo.
    SHIVs that are damaged will no longer become unusable.
    Fixed some hangs/soft crashes in tactical combat.
    Replaced software cursor with the operating system cursor to reduce lag and framerate dependence.
    Fixed rendering bug which causes some soldier’s hair to appear as if it is rendering on top of environment fog.
    1080p movies are now used at all times on the PC.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    @Whizzo

    Mine that as well, though unlike the 25-30ish minutes it took for the first download, the d/l rate crapped itself the second time and took over an hour.
