Was there anything interesting in the books?
There's an important expansion pack out now : Alien Hunters, and it added some enemies. Someone should update the character page.
Xcom 2 fancomic in works
While it's early days and in time there will be good fanfic recommendations for xcom is this needing its own tropes or should we wait to see how it further develops? It's not bad read at moment.
Also is there a tropes for xcom resurrection?
Ok, here's the deal: All of this is easily explained without resorting to alternate realities (the mothership would obviously exist in the XCOM 2 timeline as well and that message to the commander more likely refers to their first defeat of humanity). I'd say that this is WMG material rather than something that should be on the main trope list, but I'd like to get some further opinions.
Those double point entries beneath All Just A Dream.. are they natter?
Quite nattery, yes.
From the main description:
"Dissidents are made to disappear, soldiers are brainwashed and augmented beyond recognition, and only those on the fringes of society dare to think for themselves"
That's not what's actually going on, but the discovery that it's not augmentations at all (ADVENT soldiers are constructed from the ground up using "blank" clones and harvested genetic material) doesn't happen until roughly the mid-game point.
So...keep that in the description? Modify it?
I'd argue that it still fits since that's the assumption made in-universe as well as out-of-universe (most pre-release speculation, which can still be found in some entries on the article, was that they were just quislings), and the fact that they're actually clones is something of The Reveal.
Add the truth as the Reveal or as a spoiler warning.
So, is it "ADVENT" or "Advent"? Or is there some particular pattern of when to use one or the other? As far as I can tell, the game always capitalizes ADVENT — which means the pages should reflect that.
Agreed. In-game it's pretty much always all-caps.
Done a massive text replacement of Advent to ADVENT for the main, nightmare fuel, and Character pages.
So...about the Avenger and the Airborne Aircraft Carrier trope...does that actually apply? I mean, the Avenger only ever launches the Skyranger while on the ground somewhere...
It's not, it's just a Cool Starship due to the exact reasons you just mentioned
Minor spoilers ahead, not sure about the spoiler policy for discussions. Anyway..
Is there a trope about when experience from a previous game (Enemy Unknown in this case) tips off a player to future events?
I can't be the only one who was clued in to the fact that there was a rank higher than Colonel because XCOM 2's Colonel icon was not the old skull and wreath from XCOM EU.
Hold on. That's probably just Fridge Brillaince.
Damnit. Really wanted to put that on the Main Page, wonder if we still can somehow.
