FRIENDSHIP: A smile. A hug. A touch. A tender thought. Friends are for holding your hand, for sharing your laughter and for wiping away your tears. We all need friends.

Proving their worth as mere stepping stones on the road to your goal as the ultimate leader. That's what friends are for.

"I’ve been playing a preview version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown for the past few days. I haven’t really been doing anything else, except occasionally falling to sleep in front of my computer and dreaming about XCOM. I apologise in advance for the length and possible incoherence of what follows. I’m giddy, maybe I’m rambling, but I’m as excited about a game as I have been in a long time. No coy introduction here; XCOM is marvellous and now that I’m not playing it, all I want to do is talk about it, write about it, and jump up and down hollering about it."

That was all I needed to read

I have to admit i was a little taken back when they started talking about losing squad members and that saving half the civilians was win. I'm one of those gamers that will often reload a save if i lose a single unit in a battle but on the other hand it is nice to see that aspect from a realism point of view.

On a slightly unrelated note i think we should start our very own x360a Ironman mode, Impossible challenge to see you can make it the furthest through the game
