Why XCOM’s Random Results Sometimes Aren’t (and You Should Play on Ironman)

TIME writes: "Let’s say you’re playing through a sequence of events in a scenario that leads to one of your soldiers being flanked by a sectoid (XCOM’s “gray-skinned, black-eyed” aliens) who fires and scores a one-shot kill. If you reload, then perform each move and action in XCOM exactly as you did before from that point in the scenario, you’ll get exactly the same results ... I don’t mean sometimes or mostly, but every time and precisely the same, from misses to hits, damage meted out or incurred, where your opponents go and what they do, and so forth." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown)
