X-Com with my friends (9)

Well, this will probably end up being the straw that breaks the camels back, the aliens are terrorizing Nagoya, Japan. We’re going to send a squad in, but sadly we still have no one experienced. Brent, Blake, Laura B. and Ali have volunteered for Operation Blinding Dawn.

Only seconds after we touch down and start directing civilians towards the evacuation route, a pair of Chrysallids shows up. Brent and Laura take a couple of wild shots, but these aliens move very quickly.

It takes concentrated fire from all four soldiers, but the closer x-ray goes down. The other flees back into the building and out of site. Ali pops the back door open and takes a snapshot at a Chrysallid created zombie, but misses. The zombie shambles forwards, much quicker than expected, and Ali falls back to cover. She can no longer see her original target, but spots another zombie skulking at the entrance to the other building. Her shots connect, but the zombies are surprisingly resilient. Brent swings around to cover Ali’s back and connects with the zombie chasing her, but also fails to put it down.

Another zombie, stumbles to the back door of the building, and Brent tosses a frag grenade in. It takes out the wall, but does minimal damage to either of them. Meanwhile a Chryssallid and the other wounded zombie are advancing from the front of the building. Laura falls back and takes cover behind a police car, and drops the flanking zombie. 

Blake manages to put down one of the two zombies at the back door, but the other collapses and spawns a new Chryssallid, which rushes forward and eviscerates Brent before anyone can even react. As if that’s not bad enough a pair of Floaters show up.

Blake fires and misses the freshly born Chryssallid, Ali is out of ammo, and manages to clip it with pistol fire, but that has almost no effect. Laura also misses it. Then Brent’s corpse stands up and the Chryssallid rushes forward and takes Blake out, causing Laura to panic! Ali falls back and reloads, to no avail. Blake’s corpse rises, the new Chryssallid swoops over to where Laura is hiding, and then a floater takes a bead on Ali.

Japan has now withdrawn from the Council, and I think I am going to call this game over. I really was NOT expecting Classic difficulty to be anywhere near this hard. Apologies to everyone I killed, and to everyone who never made it in the fight.
