XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a bold take on a classic genre that hopefully brings new players into the fold. With a ton of depth and customization, players could easily find themselves spending hours upon hours tweaking their squads armor, colors, heads, and haircuts before sending their tiny soldiers out to face their inevitable brutal slaughter (unless you reload). But is it fun? (clicky)
aXL99’s drawing/painting live, random antics abound. Questions on the chat and over Skype are answered, and the occasional request to monkey-dance will be obliged.
aXL99 is an amazing artist from the far away land of … Canada. She is also a huge fan of many of the things we hold near and dear at this site; comic books, video games, and being a nerd. Today at 3pm EST you can watch Jessie create some incredible Mass Effect art live on the web. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and pester her while she draws something cool.
