Someone from the Google spoke to him and acknowledged it too. They pushed out an update the next morning but 2 of his photos still came tagged the same so they've blocked the term "Gorilla" now.

XCom 2: E3 Demo
I cannot wait for this game <3
Some notes, this is a much more scripted demo than actual gameplay.
1. More bespoke lines, cinematic (matinees in UE4 speak)
2. Aliens don't spawn & shoot
3. Viper doesn't Pull & Squeeze in same turn

Omg how cool is extraction!? Sadly no mechs for Xcom this time :( but ti makes sense when your in concealment. Also overwatch doesn't all trigger at once. Huge improvement. Loving the new UI.

Story
Tagline
Games Designer & Programmer in love with the world and it's Insanity
Introduction
I'm a little bit crazy but I love adventure.

I'm a Designer & Programmer currently working at Climax. I love stories people are the best source for them but if they aren't around games, movies and books will suffice.

I like to round off my flighty side with a grounded level head and knowledge base, thanks Mom. Other skills, hobbies and pleasures include, sky-diving, drama, writing, comics, painting, parties, reading, and anything which can catch my intrest.

Programming 
  • C++ (preferred)
  • Python
  • C#
  • Java
  • Pascal
I really enjoy writing in order game-play, AI, and effects. I'm comfortable with Tech but get little joy outside of tech demos and toys.

Design
Much like programming I've been doing from a young age. Everything from devising childhood games, writing & running roleplaying modules for conventions, board-games, even wrote a whole world and role-playing system which attained minor populaity at Tuks University.

Smells of mildew, old fashioned 70s furnishing, coarse wool blanket over the duvet and below par amenities. Noisy plumbing. Room service was palatable. CRT television with poor sound and handful of channels, couldn't read news ticker. Only one socket visible for use. Was able to sleep the night but not much past that. I'm informed this used to be a flagship hotel prior to it's purchase decades ago. Kept on life support ever since.

Nice burgers slightly greasy chips. American style diner with friendly service staff and pleasant but not memorable atmosphere.

This amazing little tea shop is on the top floor. It's quiet with a wide selection and lovely atmosphere.
