In the last episode of Jarenth Plays XCOM, on the 5th of November, 2015 — a scant nine months after the first strike that heralded the alien invasion — a team of six of the world’s most elite soldiers successfully infiltrated the massive alien craft designated the ‘Temple Ship’. These soldiers fought their way to the ship’s command bridge, and assaulted and killed the ‘Uber Ethereal’, an alien entity that seemed to be on the top of the aliens’ command hierarchy, and its bodyguards.
In the last episode of Jarenth Plays XCOM, not a whole lot of anything happened. It pretty much went down like this: Krellen touched the weird floating purple alien orb, then just kinda zoned out for half an hour, staring into space. I was actually seriously considering getting the XCOM medical team in there, but dr. Vahlen was… persuasive in her attempts to keep me from interrupting. And by persuasive I mean loud. And by that I mean she yelled at me until I retracted the order. Have you ever had someone rant pseudo-German at you about ‘interrupting the greatest scientific breakthrough since fire‘? I highly recommend it; it’s an experience.
