The tutorial only teaches you one thing.

All your soldiers will die.

Since I have the urge to play X-Com again, and because I am going to blame LRR for all those unproductive days that I play it I will be naming all of my soldiers after LRR members.

XCOM rule 1: All the troops you name after your favourite people will die.

Corollary: All the troops you name after your least favourite people will not only survive but be the best soldiers in your army.

so the way to beat the game is to name your entire army after people you dislike?

Aw. And here I was expecting a quip about color palette limits or being bought out by Nvidia when Voodoo 3 was being mentioned.

So... you're playing a game where you are actively trying to keep Hitler alive? Original...
Also, don't forget Mussolini, he's up there.

Mussolini is harder to hate since he managed to screw up absolutely everything he ever attempted.

I wish that other X-com game would get made, just so Unskippable can use it.

Could the intros to DLC missions count as future episode material?
