Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Well, this game apparently has the option of giving fighters EMP weapons once researched, so you can shut down instead of shoot down UFO's.

There isn't much to know about UFO Interceptions really. All we know are the following:

- You can upgrade your interceptor with different weapons (plasma, EMP etc.)
- They can use consumables that can improve their performance
- Interceptors have 4 basic commands in combat
- Interceptors can be replaced with more advanced Firestorm aircraft

No, knew that's what you meant.

Merely choose not to dignify it by pointing it out.

*Gasp* A remake of my very first loved PC game?!

How did I not know until? Hmm, get the cheaper on Amazon or the one from Steam? I play TF2 a lot, but not really into the whole hat thing.

NOOOOOOoooooooo KITKAT CHUNKY!!!

Damn I really really really want this but with Guild Wars 2 and my hols of 6 weeks coming I don't think I'll find anytime to play for some time.

Even just watching makes you tense, loved that feeling of tension at UFO sites, especially when nearing or entering a UFO.

Ah, looks like they essentially kept the UFO interception unchanged. Good. This isn't a flight simulator game, no point making it more complicated than it need to be.
