    I wonder who will make spacemarine mod for X-Com.
    - Nearly Invulnerable Space Marine
    - Good Weapons and Armor (as in Power Armor and Bolter)
    But here's the catch
    - Little to no Recruits
    - No Research or Reverse Engineering

    Hmm. Sure, sign me up. Since this is a bit of a sausage-fest so far and there's at least a couple of female soldiers kicking around in your barracks, I'll go for a bit of cross-gendered roleplaying too.

    Name: Isana Dade
    Appearance: Full armour, helmeted. Don't want to break uniform protocols, after all.

    Good stuff. Really need to pick this up for myself... Wait, isn't it on Steam? *Goes to check*

    Ayup. Well, downloading now. Playing tomorrow. Watching episode three in the meantime.

    Thoughts as I watch.

    So, I'm from Belgium, interesting. I got the first pilot, that's good, through being that close to a grenade wasn't fun. And now I'm another of the run-and-gunners, plus I didn't get hurt on my first mission, so now I'm one of highest rank active. Oh, I got the first vest. No second mission for me right now.

    And we have our first death, I think. And now, boost the squad size, your viewers will thank you, and the world will thank you. Thank you. Now I got shown up by a rookie.

    Out of curiosity, any chance we could request certain heads for us in game? Also, can you use a non-class weapon? Also also What country am I from, exactly? I am failing to recognize the flag

    Saudi Arabia of all things. I had to look that up. And, no, weapons are fairly fixed. The assault can use a regular assault rifle, and probably will when I get lasers later, though.

    The Journal of Victor Klein
    Date: REDACTED
    3rd Entry

    Thank god I was not chosen to go into that *REDACTED*! Prying those monsters from there holes will be dangerous, bloody work. I do not envy Crossblade or Smith, or the two rookies who went with them. Their lives are in the hands of fate, now. God have mercy upon them.

    4th Entry

    They came back. It was a few days ago. None of them are dead, but Crossblade and Smith were wounded, and they will need to recover. I was released from the medical bay this morning. That leaves me as the most senior operational man left, at least for a while.

    One of the new recruits got promoted to Squaddie as well. If anything comes up, he and I will be at the forefront of it.

    God help me.

    5th Entry

    Thank god nothing arose before Crossblade and Smith recovered. Hopefully, they will recieve prior-

    5 Entry Addendum

    I've been chosen for a mission, along with Crossblade and Smith, now Corporals, and Rookie Triax. This may be my last entry. I am afraid, but I have no choice.

    6th Entry

    It was a graveyard. A graveyard in *REDACTED*. Maybe God has a sense of humor.

    The Rookie, Triax, died. All I can think is that I am happy to be alive. I am not glad that he died, but I am glad that he died instead of me.

    I am back in the medical bay yet again. Hopefully I can remain here for some time; it seems the only way I can stave off death.

    7th Entry

    There have been some more missions. Luckily, I have not been sent on one. Seeing action can only accelerate one's demise in this outfit. I have a new comrade in the Heavy division. An attractive comrade. At the very least, she might get called up to fulfill the fire support role instead of me.

    8th Entry

    I was right! Tehy choose Eva instead of me to go clear out the UFO! I feel a little guilty for feeling happy that they are in danger and I am not, but it is better than being a corpse.

    9th Entry

    Eva is dead. Had I gone on that mission, I would now be dead. It is perfectly rational to feel joy when one has cheated death. Even so, Eva's passing is most unfortunate. And now I am the only Heavy division soldier left.

    It might be my turn next.

    ___

    I'm glad I'm not Crossblade or Smith. Then I'd have to write up stuff for every mission and pay attention to what happened in it really closely.

    First video down, and I have to say, you play a lot more explosives-heavy than I do. I tend to more stack the whole squad up by a door, open it, and unleash massive firepower on anything inside.

    Video 2 Edit: Bradford freaks out whenever you get down to 6 active troops.

    Yeah. Grenades don't miss, and rockets mostly never miss, so there is that. And, if you want to keep the loot, you can just take out the cover the alien is behind and let the rest of the squad gun down the now flanked alien.

    I tend to use Assaults and squadsight snipers for the most part, with a holo-target heavy and supports with sprinter, and use health-boosters to flank the original way.

    Further commentary edit: I find that I usually have more trouble with alloys than elerium, so I suggest you not sell any.

    Remember that SC2 mission where you choose to get rid of the nydus worms instead of the flyers? That would be a good core for an XCOM team...

    Maybe toss in Solid Snake as an Assault, and Herobrine as your Psyker...

    I would like to note that despite being a colossal coward, Victor did not panic when the Rookie went down in the alternate dimension.

    He also did pretty awesome in the terror mission.

    ___

    10th Entry

    If I have to be in battle, then lobbing rockets from the back is by far the best way to do so. I slew two of the *REDACTED*, and saved Sgt. Lt. Crossblade (I refuse to use that ridiculous nickname) from flanking enemies twice! And yet, I do not receive a promotion. Smith, Crossblade, and that sniper were all promoted instead! If I were not so relieved to be alive, I might be insulted.

    11th Entry

    I will never sleep peacefully again.

    What I have seen is unreal. But I destroyed it. We destroyed it. We are safe for now, and I am alive. I pray that whenever death does find me it, it is not in the shape of the horror we found.
