The year is 1997. In our timeline 1997 was a great year. That year Fallout was released later spawning No Mutants Allowed which is this little niche place you might have heard of. But not in the world of X-Com Files. Here Fallout never existed therefore NMA never existed. In this doomed timeline your fellow NMA members live entirely different lives. Some of them born years before they should be because Science! I decided not to do Iron Man because I want the LP to last as long as I can while also showing off all the new things the mod has to offer. This first entry will be kind of a Prologue. Enjoy. PROLOGUE We find ourselves hovering over the Geoscape which will be our friend for the remainder of the game. Area 55. Way more secret than Area 51 or 52. X-Com operates alone so we can expect no government assistance aside from the big checks at the end of the month. Good to see these guys are dedicated to stopping the aliens. OR ARE THEY? One thing you should know right off the bat is X-Com starts off with no Interceptors in this mod. You are essentially Mulder and Scully in a rental car in the beginning. Mulder. Scully. Plus this weird Illegal Immigrant Muppet Guy and his Australian Wombat Catcher. The team consults the Godhead so that they know what to do next. Basic Operations seems like a no brainer. It doesn't get much more basic than that. I think I was recently called a basic bitch by a 17 year old thinking on it. Moving along. Ahh yes. All the world has to offer. Thankfully X-Com Files takes place a little bit before aliens are flying around every month. Giygas is going to have to be patient. Hassknecht: Listen up! You guys have been slacking during PT so you are all going to do training while Toront and I are on Patrol Duty. Walpknut: We don't do PT. Hassknecht: Get out of the car. Toront: I have a feeling we are going to be doing a lot of these. Something to do with randomly generated missions. Hassknecht: You forgot your meds again. Toront: Right. *swallows horse pill* On the plane to Cuba Hassknecht: I still feel like they should have given us more guns. They did say dozens of giant man apes raped a village of over 1,000 people to death. Toront: Yeah but the natural progression of video games entails earning those weapons over a long period of time. The pills? Hassknecht: Yes. Hass and Toront finally land in Cuba where they take a rental car to the site of the Mass Man Ape Rape Rampage as it was reported in the news. Toront: Hass what the fuck happened to your face? You look like one of those German weightlifters with the big handlebar mustache. Hassknecht: I've always looked like this. Toront: I just lucked out I guess. Damn I look good. Hassknecht: *grumbles* *Man Apes screaming* Hassknecht: Ok we just need to grab one of them. No need to get raped by t- Toront: Spoiler Fire and a miss. The Man Ape approaches with erect penis dangling to the ground. Hassknecht: I think it likes you. Toront: This is no...time to... The Man Ape gropes Toront until he manages to get a shot off. Point blank the Man Ape loses his dangling member. Hass moves for an assist while hordes of Man Apes move off screen. The Man Ape is stunned by the combined attack. The Man Ape now near death decides maybe he should have waited for backup. So he gets shot in the back of the head. Toront: That Ape fucked me up. You are going to have to carry him. Hassknecht: At least he didn't fuck you. Bloody Man Ape. Toront: Shit another one. Let's get the hell out of here. Hassknecht: One step ahead of you. So Hass and Toront make it out alive with a giant bloody corpse as a reward. That's X-Com baby! Not the best first mission but I have seen worse. Hassknecht: Maybe I should let them grope me next time. MORE TO COME SOON!
