    Default Iskandar's Travels in X-Com: Enemy Unknown

    So, the new X-Com is out, and it is a wonderful, wonderful thing. In light of that, I'm starting a new X-Com let's play, and everyone is invited to join the fun. If you want to join my squad, and probably die horribly, here is where to enlist. First name, last name.

    Playlist is here.

    First episode is here.

    Note I have about 5 or so episodes currently recorded, so it might be a bit before I can work in any new recruits.


    Actually, reconsidered. I am going to start over, just to make sure I get everyone included. Sign ups now, I'll start the first recording in an hour or two.

    Recruits:
    Destro Yersul
    Jonathan Locke
    Obadiah ?

    Active Soldiers:
    Col Logan "Rhino" Crossblade, Assault
    Maj Timfaya "Casino" Htet, Heavy
    Maj Jamie "Emo" Crayons, Sniper
    Maj Victor "Hitch" Miklus, Support
    Cpt Maria "Gonzo" Domochevsky, Assault
    Sgt Wei "Pitbull" Ward, Assault
    Sqd Mike Millbridge, Assault
    Sqd Shneekey Dalost, Sniper
    Sqd Reid Chirt, Heavy
    Sqd Nathan Rybink, Sniper
    Sqd Robert Leckie, Support

    Rear Guard
    Col Zain "Sentinel" Smith, Support


    Memorial Wall:
    Col Samantha "Richter" Hayes, Heavy
    Lt Victor "Nuke" Klein, Heavy
    Lt Erik "Cash" Lance, Assault
    Lt Killian "Hazard" Hawkeye, Assault
    Sqd Steven Triaxx, Support
    Sqd Alexandra Ashe, Sniper
    Sqd Richard Winters, Support
    Sqd Isana Dade, Heavy
    Rk Ace Triax

    Glad to be back, Commisar Iskandar. As the one of the survivors (and slightly insane) of first tour of 199x alien war on terror, I will join your second war on alien terror.

    Awesome!! Been waiting all week for you to start posting videos for this. You didn't link the OOTS thread in the 1st episode's description though.

    First: Logan
    Last: Crossblade
    Nationality: Canada, if possible. Germany (flag black, red, yellow horizontally) as a second choice... but getting specific nations can be hard, I've heard.

    Gender: Male
    Customization: If no helmet (your call), black short or spiked hair (*not* the hair from the original game though, if you got the pre-order; it looks bad when its not blonde)... Caucasian race.
    Just to prevent others stating about customization, looks like we're all using 1 specific helmet.

    Editing out color question; it's addressed at 19 minutes.

    Check again. I stepped out while uploading the video, and I have to add the links once it posts to youtube, so I just now got around to creating this thread and getting theplaylist and such straight. Second episode coming.

    Classes are random, unfortunately.

    Further edit: Dang, apparently you cannot change the nationality of your soldiers. Everything else, yes. Changed first post to update that fact.

    Interesting choice for colors, you're the first to put yellow as Assault I've seen. Most seem to have blue assault and black for sniper.
    How close does yellow and white look on the battle field?

    Also, aren't rookies yellow-ish?

    Greenish, well, olive drab, I think. Appropriate, I think. I went with primary colors, and white for support, because they are the medic.

    I know that pain... except 13 years? I only did 2 years.
    But about a decade and a half ago, it could have ended up that way though. Good ol' separatist movement. *eye roll*

    History lesson aside:
    Sadface on the removal on the video, Iskandar; If the other vids were already uploaded, I'd still be interested in watching them, even if they aren't going to be cannon. (if they're not uploaded though, don't need to bother doing so)

    Video is not removed, it is simply made private. The rest of the videos were not uploaded. I decided that 4 or 5 hours was too long to wait for interacting with my viewers, so I might as well start over before I get too invested.

    As an aside, I'd be interested in seeing those other episodes you had recorded, just for fun. Can't wait to see the new one. (I have to do it from midnight to five in the morning.)

    Yay, I'm a Heavy!

    Boo, getting hurt in the first mission and missing out on the second!

    The Journal of Victor Klein
    Date: REDACTED
    Current Location: REDACTED
    Mood: Depressed!

    Entry: I don't know why I'm bothering to keep this journal. No one will ever read it. I won't survive to ever look back upon this, and when they find this journal, they'll probably burn it along with my corpse. I wish the nurse would give me some more painkillers. At least I wouldn't have to think about what we saw.

    *SECTION REDACTED*

    I'm just happy that grenade was not a dud. If it had been, I might not be alive now. After they got my burns cleaned, the Commander visited me to promote me and give me my new assignment. I've been assigned to man the squad's heavy weapons. Maybe the extra firepower will keep me alive.

    That lovely Russian woman is a few bunks over. She's far more hurt than I am, practically mummified in bandages. She's lucky; she gets to stay here two full weeks, while I will be cleared for duty in a little more than a week.

    God, I wish I had gone to film school like mother wanted.

    2nd Entry
    Date: REDACTED

    I heard there was a mission, and now there is a commotion in the next wing of the medical bay. I think they are bringing in the wounded, and quite possibly the dead. I hope Smith and Crossblade aren't among them; if I get assigned with them again, I have a better chance of surviving. For longer, anyway.

    Victor is a bit of an Eeyore.

    Interestingly done, Neon Knight. Looks like something PaulSoaresJr was wanting his fans to do with a sign up for his LP... though he puts out so many videos, it'll be few and far between for his Xcom vids... and his sign up sheet is apparently 14 thread pages long in requests for soldiers.

    I'm liking my name-sake is an Assault, sure I'm likely going to be the first ranked to die, being the first into a fight; but Run and Gun is cool and it looked awesome jumping through all those windows and doors and such!
