Eh, I still have absolutely no interest in 'firaxcom' (I still haven't played the copy I got from golden joysticks or whatever) so I think my lack of interest will continue onto this one, and stick to playing X-com remakes like OpenXcom or Xenonauts.

Good work specifically coming into the thread to tell us that.

Can I have it? I'd really love to be able to play Long War someday.

I always assumed "Vigilo Confido" meant "We trust in the Watch(/Watchers)" or something like that, and was a joke on the old "Who watches the watchers" thing and related philosophia.
The two translations I see most often are "My vigilance is necessary" and "I watch, I believe". But that's not even getting into all the people who insist Firaxis got their Latin wrong like everyone always does and it means something slightly different.

When I looked it up a while back the translation I was givr n was "I am watchful. I am relied upon."

But Latin is silly.

Why they have two dative forms right next to each other.  WHY YOU NO KNOW HOW TO LATIN FIRAXIS?

I like the new XCOM. It's just a really different game from the old one, more about a team of legendary heroes saving the world against impossible odds, rather than the old-style "send in the clowns" fifteen-schmucks-in-jumpsuits-with-lethal-alien-weapons, where everyone dies frequently, and sometimes it's simply better to throw more useless sacrificially at an alien than to send a few specialists.

all-SHIV teams are hilarious too.  "You brink robot warriors to fight me? SEND IN OUR OWN ROBOTS!"

and on the latin thing - most mottos or coat-of-arms aren't technically correct latin phrases anyway.

Is it not valid if they're two separate statements?

The XCOM/X-Com shit is worse than genwunners.

We know that you're afraid of things that are different.  We don't care.

Are we sure it's XCOM 2?  The arg they've got going on is a little too lolhackerz for me right now, too silly.

In short, the pagedata calls the font X-Com standard, the screenshot is X-Com's art style, and today's update spells Vigilo Confido in code.
