Brought to you by CamStudio, and myself.

Featuring the following modifications- SuperSnipers, increased magazine and rate of fire for AutoCannon and Machine gun.

11 minutes of Superhuman Cultist massacre. Enjoy. It's a weird format, but I had to try it.

Went almost flawlessly. One of 'em had a rocket launcher, but never fired it. Not a bad mission.

Would it be possible to put it in a more memory favourable format?
Its pretty much the reason I never ended up doing my tutorials ^^'..

Yeah, I wasn't sure about the format. I'm working on getting it on Youtube, so we'll see if that's any better.

It's better. It's got music!

Edit- Here we go. Enjoy.

Double post! Le gasp!

Anyway, I'm doing this so the forums'll say it's a new post, and people will see it. But I've got three more videos on Youtube, each with audio commentary by yours truly. They're the first three in what is hopefully the full campaign. Medium difficulty, because I don't want to have to deal with Superhuman. I've tried. (Doesn't work)

Hope you guys like them.

Oh. Never heard it referred to as that. I'm thinking of maybe getting another vid up tonight, or maybe tomorrow. Probably gonna raid the cult again. That's always fun.

I tried to view both videos but can't find it! Any way to reupload or mirror it?

Torrent would work also! Thanks

I just recorded with camstudio, cut out maybe ten seconds from the front and end of each with windows movie maker, and upload it.

The maximum upload size is something like 10 minutes, 1024MB. These videos are well under 10 minutes, and far below 1024MB. No worries.

No, it's MB. I quote from the site "Your video is limited to 10 minutes and 1024 MB."

Not bad.

Hoho :D .
I see that I'm not the only person that likes powerful sniper rifles :D .

I'm watching the second video and the AI behaviour when coming out from that small room near the lifts was painful to watch.
It had 2 snipers down there and it just got slaughtered.
If I was leading the cultists, the X-Com soldiers down there would get slaughtered with point blank laser fire.

I don't understand how they could release the game like that :/ .

Yeah, I was a little worried down there. But hey, its the cult. Not exactly known for their intelligence.

Well, I've had skeletoids get creative with their attacks. Them and poppers.

It's dumb luck. The alien's most effective means of surprising and stumping the player. And, oddly enough, it works! ;) In real time combat though, it kind of falls apart and you see them do some rather stupid things at times.

In TB it falls apart too, since the AI doesn't seem to understand the concept of conserving APs and using it to shoot things instead of running around.
