    On a non-xcom topic, winter is approaching for most of us (and made a comment last year in regards to how bad snow was throughout europe let alone UK) So some advice I pass on.

    Wear good footwear when icy (I'm wearing safety boots with grip or "dewalt" brand as their proven versatile in all conditions very little difference between them annd walking boots) I made the error of buying a in shop boots last year and still slipped.

    Keep warm.

    Get ice grips via recognized brand if need to.

    Have a good christmas in the process.

    Just to add that footwear is my own personal choice, I would wear hiking boots if I trekking on more rocky surfaces, but I opted for safety boots as they are used during outdoor areas (train yards) and are cheaper but that is own opinion on that.

    I have to say, the TL-Pack is quite a nice story enhancement! Tho it generates some plot holes ;) The mini campaigns are a lot of fun, and I'm not even done with them yet, let alone finished on gold medal! And I want a Bradford-Sweater!

    At some point you just got to roll with it, it's no secret in my case I'm very focused on lore material and much prefer consistency as they have setup a good world with the designs and backstory told through those designs.

    I think a lot of it could have been avoided by saying 'when you lost base defense' As not only does that give a gap to fit lore in as base defence can occur whenever you activate it but explains how many other factors came in such as certain weaponary in the expansion.

    It's a great expansion and the music is sure as hell kickass.

    Got my first mission in. It went well, only one WIA. That has to be it for tonight, though.

    So, it's XCOM 1.5, sort of? For a moment I thought it would be Terror from the Deep...

    Oooh! New DLC Pack with apparently a lot of story missions - I hope those integrate into the main game, but even if not, more XCOM is always better. Ready for more good news? Release is already next Tuesday! And that's not all - for those who WotC, the DLC will be free if you grab it before December! So, Commanders - finish your Campaigns as Mods will most likely take a while to be compatible and then enjoy the new content :DOooh!
