We have the weekly Deals with Gold, provided as usual by Major Nelson. There is nice offering here for gamers, as Deals with Gold brings Aliens, Augments and Action. Kicking off these deals, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a fantastic 67% off, so if you like stealth or roleplaying gamed, that’s a no-brainer. The ever-enduring Grand Theft Auto V is available for a very cheap price with some nice bonus cash, at 50-60% off, depending on the exact bundle chosen. Crime, hijinks and plenty of action are things lots of gamers will enjoy.
However, this week’s RGM recommendation is a turn-based strategy title called XCOM 2. For those new to the series, it revolves around you, the player, building a base and team. This XCOM project is then used to combat an alien menace threatening humanity. It’s brutal, as you are vastly outnumbered and outgunned. Your soldiers will die and be permanently lost. You’ll lose missions because you didn’t prepare properly. That’s okay though, that’s the point. This is a difficult game, continuing a legacy of difficult games. Ready for the challenge?
XCOM 2 is the sequel to the award-winning strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Earth has changed and is now under alien rule. Facing impossible odds you must rebuild XCOM, and ignite a global resistance to reclaim our world and save humanity.
• XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. New open-ended gameplay lets you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations.
• RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan.
• TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts. Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by carrying them to the extraction point.
• A NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct tactical challenge.
• RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your preferred tactics.
• ENGAGE IN HEAD-TO-HEAD MULTIPLAYER: Mix-and-match squads of humans and aliens and battle head-to-head on randomly-generated maps.
