    What, you think I'm stupid enough to get out of cover to take down a rookie? Heh. If there's no cover between me and him, I always have a Plasma Pistol.

    Plus, you're not so great inside a UFO. I'm good in any environment.

    No I just wanted to see a scene how Iskandar will chew out Prince Blueblood, ironic since Iskandar fought in First War on UFO Defense over elerium while lying to his men that they are liberating humanity and acted like a typical Imperial Guard commander.

    Personal log of Alexandra Ashe

    Show
    30th May
    Half the team came back in body bags and the others didn’t look they were quite all there anymore. Even colonel Crossblade looked rattled. Command seemed relatively satisfied with the results though… it better be worth it.

    9th June
    Damn. Lance died today… he probably saved my life back then at my first mission.

    28th June
    One of my friends over in the labs passed on the word today. They figured out how to build plasma weapons. I can’t wait to hear about the x-rays reaction to having to face that. Not so weak as they thought we were, are we?

    2nd July
    So they built this strange new lab and Colonel Crossblade and Major Smith got sent down there and into these strange machines. Personally those things freak me out, and hearing that the guys will have to stay in there for a few days? I do not envy them, that’s for sure.

    13th July
    Crossblade came out of the psycho-cocoons with psychic powers. Like a superhero or something. Naturally no one was really surprised at the barracks, next we’ll hear the man shot down a UFO just by looking at it and not one of us will bat an eyelash. One of the recruits that arrived a handful of days ago made the mistake to say “like the x-rays”… he got sent down to the infirmary with a broken nose.

    14h July
    We got a new cocky bunkmate, one of the latest batch of arrivals. One of the guys will show him to the infirmary tomorrow… show him just how brutal Xcom is.

    20th July
    Crossblade killed someone with his mind on the mission today. We were all gathered in the rec room to toast the successful mission, like we always do. Cpt Crayons came in, paler that usual, and just told us that. That killed the mood. I mean… we all thought it was good and all… but what’s next? They’re going to want more of us being capable of that, that’s for sure. But what will it mean… really?
    Hazard was killed too… damn… two days ago Crossblade congratulated him and it seemed that he might step up with the best of the best. Recently promoted to lieutenant and all. And today he’s dead.

    21st July
    Nightmares are back. I went back to see the doc. I suppose the news last night made my depression come back. So I got a new batch of meds and back to barracks. Rumor has it that Zain and McIntyre are being taken off active duty. Those two guys deserve it. It’s not something we talk about, but every single one of us that’s been on a mission has some sort of drugs or sleeping pills. Every other night you hear someone having nightmares. Me, I see those eyes most nights and every time I look into a mirror. The new recruits doesn’t seem to get it though.
    The fact that I’m one of the “base snipers” doesn’t help, just makes me feel all the more helpless.

    3rd August
    Another day, another new sort of UFO shot down. Why is it always over Brazil though? Seems like everyone we shoot down is over Brazil. Regardless, those pilots deserve all the credit they get.

    I don't need you out of cover. A Colonel rank Sniper had 105% hit, +10% from the scope I always give them, leaves them with 75% of hitting you, with two shots.

    Ok, last baby post before we got back to X-Com:
    Here from this afternoon.

    Mom and baby should be coming home this weekend, so hopefully I will finally have time to edit and upload the two or three episodes I have recorded, but ran out of time to get onto youtube.

    As far as recording new episodes, I don't know. I am deeply, deeply tired right now. Like 10 hours of sleep since Tuesday kind of tired. I'll be evaluating how much time I have on my hands next week.

    Now, pardon me, i'm going to fall over for a bit.

    Well, GuudeBoulderfist, a professional youtube Let's Player that does videos to earn a living only has 3-5 hours a day to play and edit videos since he had his kid. So I suspect it'd be VERY EXTREMELY rare for you to get yourself time to record.
    Enjoy the time with your child. Take lots of pictures, you'll enjoy them in the years to come.
