whaaaat ? it's a proper XCom game.

or are you talkign about the delay of that other Xcom game that shall remain unnamed and forgotten even if it's awesome, that has nothing to do with the new new xcom game this thread is about ?


This is a first person shooter, it is NOT a proper XCOM game.

This, is the original XCOM, and the best...



It's an RTS game..

You're wrong - as far as I know this is NOT an FPS game. The FPS X-COM is coming sooner, I forgot the name of the game. But this one is definitely a turn based (or not?) Strategy game

No the game for this thread is an RTS, there is a FPS coming out soon. Two different games.

Apparently it is a mix of RTS and turn based. I'm just praying that they don't ruin another game from my formative years. This one is at least looks more promising. I couldn't care less about an X-Com FPS (or the Syndicate one).

Just thinking I hope this is a massive hit and we then see a proper Syndicate game as well.

Heck no. The original XCom series was always turn based. I can't fathom playing an XCom in first person.

I don't care if it was turn based, RPG, racer, shooter, or sidescroller. I want the XCOM FPS shooter that has been shown more than this XCOM strategy game. Period.

love how lots of developers still stick to the every car is a Ford Crown Vic creed, even though Ford doesn't make Crown Vics anymore. love the car, but we could use more variety. i mean just look at the first screenshot we get. a Crown Vic, what do you know.

I'm a fan of the original series and I've found out about this game just now!

WOOT! The release is tomorrow!

Official website: http://www.xcom.com

There is a bunch of reviews here, but I've especially enjoyed this one.

Pre-loaded and ready to go, the demo was all I needed to get hyped about this game.

I'm definitely hyped for this but one of the reviews I read mentioned how much better it was with a controller than K/B. That just boggles my mind and has me waiting now. I want to hear from others how it plays on PC (with PC controls) before I purchase.

I read about this game and honestly was not very interested in it......never heard of the series. After playing the Demo I believe I may end up buying it. I like strategy games in general but never really played a turn-based game, but I think the mechanics work well together....feels like a game of chess where it is not physically skill based at all (like most FPS games) and instead you can take as much time as you want planning out what you are doing then take action.

Loving this game, am getting sick and tired of losing soldiers but I refuse to reload even though I am not on ironman. So many things to mange is awesome but also tough to keep up with. Started playing at 12:45 tonight and was like ok I'll just 1 or 2 missions, all the sudden it's 2:30 AM. This game is a must have IMO if you like any type of strategy.
