Apparently the patch came out today, so I'm gonna give the PvP another crack over the weekend and see if finding ranked games is any smoother.

Until then, enjoy this guys second mission on an impossible ironman playthrough :)

Haha I just watched that entire series that I embedded episode 2 of above...

I highly recommend it to anyone, whether you're interested in XCOM or not. The narrator hits his stride and develops characters for what is essentially a humourous, dynamic war story. The last episode was brilliant, and I'm pretty sure you need no knowledge of XCOM to enjoy it.

Now I've just got to work out how to kill the rest of the afternoon before I can go home and carry on with my game...

I don't know where you assume I work, but that sort of thing is most definitely frowned upon during office hours...

some of the places I've worked at in the past positively encouraged it.

Don't get it on PC :-O

Judging from videos, it seems a lot more fiddly on PC. The controls work great on console.

Although I appreciate the impulse-buy power of that Steam beast. Probably a good job I don't have access to it...


EDIT: As a guy in this thread points out...
