    But he'll try. And he'll thwack away for hours, then days, always hoping for some response indicating pain to soothe his growing fury, only to, finally, collapse, leaving X-Com Earth without a leader.

    So I volunteer to tell him. I can use the workout, really. All the time riding the bench here can't have been good for me.

    Surely you're at least taking Copper into the fiery deathtrap of space with you, right?

    Off topic a bit, how can you even play this game? I tried installing the windows version in order to kill some alien scum, but the screen scrolls much faster than my mere human reaction time can match, even with the speed tuned all the way down.

    Is this a common problem? And if so, is there an easy fix that I'm missing?

    No idea how to fix the Windows version. When playing the DOS version via DosBox, if it should end up being too fast (which it shouldn't), one could simply slow down the emulation.

    EDIT: Brilliant, BRC.

    Hey look at Cubey being Crazy, saying my Mutons have Purple bodysuits and green faces. When anybody can look at the latest comic and see that it's the other way around.

    My theory is that they were not your standard Mutons at all!
    Perhaps some offspring of the legendary Muton Commander, who appears only in the intro, along with other implausible fairytales, like the Guy Who Can Jump Really High and the Guy Who Can Mow Mutons Down With An Autocannon?

    Oh yeah, and in case somebody doesn't know what I'm talking about with the Muton commander and all, here is the intro.

    A few comments:

    0:16 I am Muton Commander, hear me ROAR! (no such rank/race combo in the game)
    0:21 Why are the Mutons firing laser weapons? Isn't that human technology?
    0:27 Is it just me or does this guy look like a vampire?
    0:46 Oh my God! Where did the rest of my body go?!
    0:47 Let's grab our Rifles! It's a great choice against heavily armored endgame aliens!
    0:56 X-Com is GO!
    0:59 I can jump really high which does not change the fact that my weapon is totally ineffectual!
    1:01 Three Mutons killed with a starting weapon! Bet you didn't see that coming, huh?
    1:12 Crappy earlygame guns AND Personal Armour? Does not compute!
    1:16 Let's teleport back to the Terror Ship, like we totally can not do in the actual game!

    But there is one thing that's actually more realistic in the intro than in the actual game - the Mutons didn't bring their terror units along. Their comic relief antics would just ruin the race's reputation as a serious alien menace.

    I always wondered why do people in this intro are able to make such huge anime-inspired leaps, even though in the actual game they can't even jump over a 3-feet tall stone wall.

    Well guys... its been... a unique experience working with all of you. When my mom told me to sign up, she planned on me just going through basic training and finding a nice girl. Of course, I received no training for this job, and I don't think there's a single female on this team, but whatever. You guys are some of the oddest people I've met, and to be honest... this has all been hell, and will take years of therapy to forget. But... do I want to forget it? I'm sure that after this is all over, I'll come out a different person... and I want to take this time to tell you all that you're the closest things I've had to friends in awhile, even between the beatings and mind rapes and accusations of being alien spies.

    And I don't envy you idiots going to Mars. Seriously.

    My only regret is that I suck so much that I wasn't even good enough to go on one mission. Of course, my general uselessness also saved me from Mars, so it's all good.


    Also, good luck.

    Not to mention that in the earlier shots one can clearly see them carrying plasma rifles. Only once they start shooting it gets wonky.

    There is a very simple explanation.

    The intro is an in-universe X-Com propaganda movie. That explains all the inconsistencies and the soldiers' apparent superhuman abilities.
