I am truly passionate about gaming, from skype calls with a bunch of cool friends, discussing whether WoW is too outdated for its new expansion or not. All the way to putting in a combined total of about 600 hours across PC and xbox 360 Skyrim….good lord O.o

The Long War mod: why you should be playing XCOM again

For those of you who don’t know, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based strategy game that was released back in 2012. The original game placed you as the commander, the one in charge of organizing earth’s final defense against the alien invaders. Fast forward a few and XCOM Enemy Within is released. This incredible expansion pack (not DLC), adds many cool new additions to the original game, such as mech troopers, or genetically enhanced super soldiers, along with a new campaign and a new enemy to face. The only thing XCOM was missing after Enemy Within was, well, more XCOM. However, a genius group of modders have released a mod titled Long War.
