Santoryu practice?

Nope that's sign language for Bon Qui Qui "I will cut you"

Some Muton love...

Let's say spoiler codes because maybe you didn't read previews and want the joy of Muton Discovery (visually anyway) for yourself...  icon_smile

Spoiler for Hiden:
I don't recommend getting THIS close to a Muton...  icon_eek


I think because of its thick armor, the Ranger's sword attack literally bounces off, and the Muton either claw-kills or claw-stuns the Ranger.

I guess the key is to either take out the armor (Grenadier's Shredder ability) before letting the Ranger attack, using a poison grenade (which was effective I guess at getting "past" the armor to impact its health) or just plain old flanking firepower and grenades.

I think Muton might be my favorite alien even if I'm not yet very good at dealing with it. Awesome character model and animations for him.  icon_smile

And now I'll stop for the... morning? I've lost track of time again.   icon_smile

When I went to grab my non-Elite controller the other day I almost slung it across the room since the plastic was much slipperier than the Elite one and I picked up the old one with too little grip to hang on to it.

In homage to Rick and Morty, my next play through might be one where my entire soldier base is made of Jan Michael Vincents.

As a tip for speeding up evacs, if you use Tab or whatever button to switch to a different soldier while the Evac animation is playing, it will skip that animation and jump straight to the next soldier.

I assume a lot of it is either technical issues --
This.  I am running a GTX 980 and my frame-rate regularly drops to 30FPS or even lower at times.  A computer that can run Witcher 3 at max should not have trouble with XCOM.
If it's helpful (maybe you might see some specific difference between our systems or driver versions etc?), I'm using GTX 970 and the game runs smooth as glass at 1920X1080. Am using the driver dated 1/22/16 (

Here's my basic Asus gaming PC specs:
Operating System
Windows 8.1 64-bit

Intel Core i7 4790 @ 3.60GHz:
Haswell 22nm Technology

16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)


SyncMaster (1920x1080@60Hz)
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (NVIDIA):

119GB KINGSTON RBU-SC100S37128GD (SSD):  [note: *It's a relatively tiny SSD, and I don't run games off it.]
*I know some folks who have moved the Preset setting down from High (and then adjusted some individual settings) seemed to get much better performance and/or fewer problems.

I think other folks found that switching from Windowed Mode to Full Screen (or was it other way around?) made a big difference.

P.S. What the heck does "Bokeh" mean? I don't understand any of the names under "Depth of Field"  icon_redface
My specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
   Intel Core i5 3570K @ 3.40GHz   
   16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
   DELL U2412M (1920x1200@59Hz)
   DELL U2412M (1920x1200@59Hz)
   4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 (EVGA)   
   931GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO 1TB ATA Device (SSD)
Really just seems like an optimization problem with the game.

Bokeh is the ability of a lens to blur out the background in a photograph.  Highly desired in a lens and you need a lens with a low f-stop to get decent bokeh.  Here is a photo I took with a f1.4 lens (lowest I have)

It has a very narrow depth of field meaning only the subject is in focus and the rest is bokeh.

I have my doubts this will generate much interest here, but I figured I might as well try.

It's a T-Mobile Android phone -- more details here:

It's brand new in box -- only opened to remove the SIM.

I'm running at High graphics with this rig: Intel i7 4770K 3.5GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 780 3GB, Win7 64bit Home Premium, 480GB SSD main drive. I'm fine with "just" 30 fps, in fact I really don't see why that would be a problem for a turn based game. Others may have different opinions of course icon_biggrin.

It does help to be old and have declining eyesight, things look pretty much always fine to me icon_wink

Got my son one for Christmas.  I then bought myself one a few weeks after he had his.  I think its a much better controller than the others.  I use the left rear paddle for sprinting and the right rear paddle for melee attacks.  You can set up the controller to be game specific so it has lots of options.  I took the front two paddles off.
