Ahem. I know.
First off, it doesn't show the payoff for the AI for the last move. What does it get out of that? I know, but the game doesn't show it.
It seems sort of like a random thing to do. It doesn't show how you can then get 10^10^large paperclips afterwards, thus hammering the reward function.

I'm super excited about the forthcoming Phoenix Point. Cthulhu-ish XCOM thing from the designer of the original. They were some of my faves and Gollop seems pretty ambitious with a complex strategy layer as well as the tactical turn-based combat.

First that, and now Fred and Paul with some new Starcon. All my Christmasses, etc!

I backed that game! I also wanted in on the investment program...but unfortunately it was only available in the USA...THe poor Canuck in me was disapointed.

Interesting. I'm fine to back a game but don't think I'd ever invest. Seems chancy.

In the long interim before Phoenix Point's arrival, I am playing the Final Modpack for the original UFO: Enemy Unknown. It really adds a lot of cool shit to the base game. A bit of item clutter but overall I think it's a significant improvement.

I've been playing the heck out of Super Smash Brothers Ultimate! I've almost collected every spirit aswell. If anyone else plays it, PM me if you wanna play some time. (King K. Rool main btw)
