I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

All this X-Com bug stuff makes me laugh...

Because I can't even play SWTOR PvP :cry:

1. I am on the wrong side (Republic player on the Empire side)
2. All HP bars have "NaN" aka Not a Number
3. I am the only one in the game
4. This issue also prevents me from joining other groups
5. I CAN'T FUCKING PLAY

Neither can a lot of Xcom players. The patch introduced region locking where there previously was none.

Also, your character is ugly as sin.

Had the same exact problem with WoW on one of my computers. Can't remember the fix, it was weird though.

You just wait 'til we get modding tools, peon.

And until then: Hank, I have some new screenshots for you to add to the slideshow.

I've been too slow in the past to get clearer images of this bug, but you can still tell what's going on: dude's looking one way and shooting another.

Posted Image
Here's the item-stuck-in-hand bug: in this case, the plasma rifle. Despite the model in his hand, he's actually firing his sidearm at the enemy. Note the hand position, muzzle flash, and the shell casings flying out of the gun.

Well, played 4 hours of XCOM tonight and had a blast. Really enjoying it.

Most of the bugs I've seen so far are the shooting-thru wall variety, mostly when trying to shoot around corners. I did have one case, where the alien stepped into the building, to shoot at my guy on the outside.

The only serious bug I came across was actually on the demo map (which came up on one of the missions in the regular game) where I couldn't move my guy to the roof for some reason.

Thanks, Hank.

The shoot-through-corner stuff isn't so much a bug as it is that the cover system is somewhat unintuitive, especially for people who played the original.

That is also another bug. All Avatars have this really bad Sith Corruption, even if they are Light sided or neutral.

Just wait, something will run a muck :twisted:

any friends here want some humble indie bundle steam codes?

I was looking back at the stuff I owned and alot of it overlapped with codes unused... so far i have available:

Wizorb, BIT.TRIP.RUNNER, Gratuitous Space Battles, and Jamestown Steam Key
Gish Steam Key
Cortex Command Steam Key
Humble Bundle #1
Humble Bundle #2


If you already own alot in any of these, sorry, I want to give it to someone who "needs" em... but if you're an ol' GGT friend, they are yours.

Can't comment on Dishonored, but...

Xcom is an awesome game with a couple rarely-important but bafflingly stupid design decisions and a shitload of bugs, though most are of the visual variety and the ones that actually harm the gameplay are rare.

And according to Firefox, "bafflingly" isn't a word.

The game is a blast to play, despite the bugs.

I did have a couple more pop up today. When returning from a scientific research video, the menu appeared where the cursor was, not underneath the main menu.

Also, on a mission I had a selection box sticking in one square. None of it affected gameplay.

Too many games to play. I have Binary Domain installed and I haven't even loaded it yet.

I am waiting for a good long weekend to knock out that game.

So the new Xcom has a pretty interesting door mechanic, especially compared to the fucking deathtraps that were doors in the original.

You can either take things slow, move up to the door, and open it manually, or you can run through a door, making a lot of noise and alerting any nearby aliens.

The weird thing that I just noticed, though? You can only open a door from the side. If you're standing in front of it, you either have to run through or step one square to the side to open it. This is something that pretty much never comes up, but... why?

Also weird: a character can open a door even if they've already used up all their moves so long as they aren't your last character. Also something you wouldn't do often, but it has some strategic value.

I only bring this up because the second one might be a slideshow-worthy bug, and it might be a design decision (since door opening isn't counted as an "action" in this game).
