The story is told in first-person from the point of view of a bullied student who gets cheated on by his crush but also cheats and gets cheated on by his girlfriend. All this happens mainly in a group of four friends, with a few more characters who eventually start getting involved.
Though some of its imitators have abandoned random chance-to-miss, going back to XCOM has made me appreciate its diciness too. There's a gambler's thrill to the surprise hit against the odds, and the missed 90% shot at a viper who is about to crush a teammate that forces you to scramble for an alternate solution. 59ce067264
