I reinstalled Civ 5 because we wanted to try playing it multiplayer (co-op) again, and while I was doing that I installed a bunch of pony mods and started a game where I'm Princess Celestia competing with the neighboring empires of Chrysalis, Discord, and Sombra. Chrysalis is my BEST BUD. And as long as she has that ridiculous freaky huge army that she somehow managed to spam, I hope she stays that way.

I'm... not winning. On Prince, which I know Rowyn at least considers 'easy mode'.

I started playing it as a break from XCOM-2. I don't hate X-COM 2. I want to play it more. I'm just not sure I want to play more of it RIGHT NOW since RIGHT NOW I have to go into a retaliation mission where they're throwing mutons and a sectoid against me. The joke about the Ranger class is that 'after years of using plasma weapons, X-Com finally invented the sword'. Well, the aliens invented the sword too. Or at least the power-fist.

...and the tongue. *shudder*

Anyway, yeah -- it's a mission where you have to kill some enemies and save 6 out of 13 civilians. So far, I have not managed to finish the mission with any of my soldiers alive. X-Com 2 is FREAKING HARD.

I'm sure there are people out there complaining that it's so easy and the AI is horrible and even the 'impossible' mode is a cakewalk... because between Civ and X-COM, one thing is becoming increasingly clear.

I am not good at strategy games. x.x
