In Lieu of a Full Review…

I’ve been playing XCOM 2 lately. A full review is coming eventually. Until then, here are some screenshots which I dragged into Photoshop, and then applied artsy-filter stuff to.

The Load Screen, which uses one of your soldiers from the active game file
One of the many “Skyranger Returns” scenes, pointillized
XCom’s soldiers RTB and report. The guy in front has a sad story about “this hurts.”

If you click on any of these you’ll be rewarded with a 1920×1080 jpg that is nicely suited for use as a desktop wallpaper.


(Note: These images would not be possible without the work of the passionate and brilliant artists and designers at Firaxis Studios. All I did was screen-grab, and then stylize. Mad props to the real heroes here!)
