Recently I have been playing a lot of XCOM 2, I certainly missed the series. I thought it thematically appropriate considering that in the next month or so a brand new expansion pack will be released, so I better keep my skills up to date!
One thing however I do differently than most people who play XCOM is I like to theme my playthroughs. In Enemy Unknown I loved to create entire squads of MEC’s (Cybernetically enhanced humans in giant power armor suits) and in XCOM 2 it seems that I have fallen in love with the latest addition to the soldier barracks, the SPARK unit.
These giant robots with big guns were first introduced during the last piece of DLC to the game known as Shen’s Last Gift. These units are difficult to build, cost a lot and require you to go on a dangerous mission to get the blueprint however after that you can have your own robot army!
Now unfortunately SPARKS are considered very underpowered in the current game due to them having poor aim and not being able to take a huge amount of hits however with them supposedly getting a buff in the new expansion let’s just say I can’t wait for my robot squad to crush the alien menace beneath their metal boots!
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
