How XCOM 2: War of the Chosen Ramps Up Threats

With War of the Chosen, Firaxis is making a big move to increase XCOM 2’s tactical variety. In just the first couple of hours of a campaign, I saw several new mission types, two new soldier classes, new enemy types, some major new mechanics, and no fewer than four voice actors from Star Trek: The Next Generation. And from the look of it, there’s a lot more where that came from.

All of the missions I played – including some revamped versions of original XCOM 2 missions – felt new and different thanks to distinct objectives, and none had a “game over” turn timer where you’ll lose if it expires. I don’t mind those as much as some, but it’s great to see less reliance on that mechanic in missions. The first one I played was an introduction to two of the three new factions: the Skirmishers (Advent defectors who’ve managed to remove their own implants) and the Reapers, in which you’re arranging a meet between the two feuding factions. They both hate Advent, but the Reapers’ leader (voiced by Jonathan Frakes, AKA William Riker) doesn’t trust the Skirmishers or their leader (voiced by Denise Crosby, AKA Tasha Yar) and… seems to want to eat them. As food.

Alex Jones Doubles Down On Threats Ahead Of Megyn Kelly Show

Alex Jones, conspiracy theorist and host of “InfoWars,” on Saturday intensified his call for NBC News to release a full, unedited recording of his controversial interview due to air Sunday on the network’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” program.

During a 15-minute rant posted to the live-streaming app Periscope, Jones said that if NBC did not publish at least about 100 minutes of his unedited interview on their website, he would release eight or more hours of secret audio recordings and footage he has of Kelly and her news team.

The recordings, Jones claims, were made in his car and at dinner with Kelly, and in the control room of his studio. During the ramblings he posted, he also insults longtime NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw and calls NBC News and Kelly “frauds.”

Jones’ threat came after earlier last week he published parts of an off-the-record phone call he had with Kelly before the videotaped interview took place. During that conversation, Kelly tells Jones that she was “not looking to portray you as some boogeyman or just any sort of gotcha moment,” adding, “I just want to talk about you.”

Jones said on Saturday that he is calling on NBC to release the unedited version of his and Kelly’s interview after watching the channel’s teaser of the upcoming profile

“I’ve already see your promo, a bunch of deception. So that’s why I know that you’re lying. That’s why I released those earlier tapes,” Jones said on Saturday.

“You can easily post that [Sunday] night, so people can see what I said,” he added, referring to the unedited version of their interview.

Critics ― which include families of the children killed during the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings ― have slammed Kelly and NBC News for giving Jones and his rhetoric a platform.

Jones, whose “InfoWars” show has amassed an audience of millions, had previously suggested that the 2012 school massacre was a hoax and claimed the victims’ parents were pretending to mourn as a ruse to promote gun control. He has since conceded that he now believes the shooting, in which 20 children and six adults were slaughtered by a gunman who then killed himself, did occur.

Other dangerous conspiracy theories Jones has peddled on his show include a false story known as Pizzagate that claimed Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign staff operated a sex trafficking ring out of a pizza restaurant in Washington. The rumors prompted a North Carolina man to bring an assault-style rifle into the restaurant to investigate.

After Jones leaked his phone call with Kelly, NBC News told HuffPost that the network still planned to broadcast the interview as scheduled.

NBC News did not return HuffPost request for comment on Saturday when asked if the media outlet would be releasing an unedited version of Kelly and Jones’ interview.
