Offtopic / Longest game ever?
« on: October 26, 2014, 08:34:32 pm »
What's the longest a game of XCOM has ever taken you to complete using the in-game calendar? So far the longest I've ever gone is into the third year. I kind of want to see how long I can just keep the game running before I get overrun.

Suggestions / Making Base Defense Facilities More Useful
« on: August 09, 2014, 09:20:19 pm »
If I'm not mistaken (and correct me if I am), building facilities to defend your base is an all or nothing affair. Either you shoot enough missiles to destroy the incoming battleship completely, or you accomplish nothing and still have to deal with all the aliens. This always struck me as rending almost all of the base defenses worthless. In the early game, you're probably not going to be able to afford to put in enough missiles or lasers to actually shoot down an attack, and by late game it's not going to matter because you can flood your bases with tanks/abuse psy powers.

So, to breath some new life into the facilities, would it be possible to tie the amount of aliens which show up in your base with the remaining health of the attacking ship?

Alternatively, if that's not possible, might it be possible to have other kinds of alien craft attack the base? That way there would be a point to at least throwing up some token defenses.
