Doesn't seem like theres much discussion about these games on this forum. DIshonored came out today, and XCOM is coming out tomorrow. Anyone picking these up?

Pre-ordered X-Com and probably going to pick up Dishonored during Steam Christmas sale.

Just bought Xcom watched some videos on it and it looks awesome. Heard it is pretty challenging which is always a good thing plus I love strategy games =). Might pick up Dishonored tomorrow haven't decided yet.

I pre-ordered XCOM a while ago. Looks fun.

XCOM looks pretty amazing. Would a person that has never played a turn based game, other than about 10 minutes of civ 5, enjoy this?

I have X-COM pre-loaded and ready to go for launch in an hour and a half, and will be picking up my pre-order of Dishonored tomorrow morning. They both look excellent but I haven't seen a new IP raved about as much as Dishonored in some time. I've had a feeling about it since I first saw gameplay and interviews and it's nice to know I was right for once. X-COM on the other hand looks to be an excellent take on the turn-based-strategy genre. The demo was excellent and I actually plugged in my controller for most of the time because it controls so well with one.

EDIT: Dishonored launches on Oct. 9th just like X-COM EU, I'm not sure where you heard it launched today.
