XCOM, the bastardization of everything I love and hold dear in the fabled 90s game series, looks like it could be worth some attention.

Personally, I think it looks fantastic.

Looks weird.
But it also looks pretty decent.
I guess it's open environment as well?
Too bad it reminded of Destroy All Humans

The causes for hope? As promised when first revealed, there is some element of research and strategic planning to be had, with researchers and engineers working on new weapons and a choice of missions on offer that come and go in real-time, meaning the game's outcome will vary depending on which ones you choose and complete.

And the causes for concern? Well, the report makes it sound like your actual input on things like research is minimal, while the missions you can choose sound pre-programmed, and not the result of your active measures in combating the alien menace. Worse still is the suggestion that, at the time of the playthrough, while you had allies in the field with you as part of a promised "tactical" throwback to the original games, you couldn't actually issue any commands to them.

Why did they have to tack the X-Com name onto this? Looks interesting though.

It isn't X-COM, sorry =\\. They can put the name on it, but it doesn't hold true. I am a die hard though.

It looked more like Bioshock, only with crap graphics and above ground.


Marin, I am disappoint.
