    How would you feel about playing this on stream Limpy? You seemed to enjoy the combat of Divinity. XCOM is similar, simplified in some cases (action points replaced with a fixed two action system, very limited inventory space, fewer abilities per unit) and more complex in others (cover mechanics, larger group sizes). And then of course instead of the exploration and talking of Divinity, you have a strategic resource management game with the base building and research and so on between missions.

    With the Enemy Within expansion and the Long War mod found here: http://www.nexusmods.com/xcom/mods/88/? .. It's a really solid game. There's lots of room for viewer interaction since it's turn based, and you're likely to genuinely need all the advice you can get.. Even the backseat gamers can have fun! Also, if you pick a theme for naming your soldiers (movie stars, superheroes, characters from sci-fi series or whatever) you can have a lot of fun quoting and doing impressions ;)

    So what do you think? Maybe you already played it?

    Oh hey, I just had a pretty cool idea. Listen to this:

    Anyone who subs during XCOM gets to have the next soldier to get promoted from private to specialist named after them, or pick the name or whatever. Maybe also decide weapon type and what skills to take? Would require some writing down, but I really like the idea of you knowing it's your new subs you are trying to get safely through the mission, and the attachment that would give to your soldiers. That would make for a seriously interesting watch. I'd make you my first twitch sub if you did that.

    Maybe that would suck for people who are already subbed though? But you start with 30 soldiers, and you'll need names for at least 18 of them pretty quick, so can always fill out those first name with current subs who are watching. Usually you end up going through at least 50-60 soldiers.. I don't have your numbers, so I dunno if that would work out.

    So what do you think? Feasible? Fun? Fappable? :D
