Agent roster management and sending agents on missions to level up sounds just like the mission system in Assassins Creed..
fuck this, Xcom is supposed to be fully strategic, the guy makes fun of the fact that people think its just a shooter, but here's the thing jackass, it is just another third-person shooter with the xCom title, it looks like fucking mass effect for christ sake, well done 2k on ruining an amazing opportunity
Imo its a pitty they dropped the fps view and went for 3d person view. But if they make it a solid game with all the basebuilding/research stuff I'll still get it.
this game is must to have.
crappy mass effect-like game if you ask me... I think a more polished X-Com would have been much better. The market is already full of first-third person shooters.. and very good ones, btw... , though x-com style is quite unique, they should have better secure that market's nest.
It reminds me of Mass Effect/Full Spectrum Warrior type gameplay. Seems pretty interesting. Now I want a new Full Spectrum Warrior, that game was great.
Edit: They just mentioned Full Spectrum Warrior in the video haha, glad they are on the same page as me.
I know a lot of people have been tired of FPS's but the FPS Xcom looked really good, this just looks like a generic third person shooter now. The Xcom FPS seemed like a good spin off with new aliens, new setting, new story, and new weapons and tactical decisions. Now this looks like a generic third person shooter where you shoot aliens, sadly i think i will be skipping this over now.
Ok, so.. I preferred the way the game looked the first time they showed it. Now it look kinda generic and just like lots of third person tactical games before it. Am I on my own?
I'm glad he mentioned Full Spectrum Warrior, because that's exactly what I thought of while watching the beginning of this demo. Looks interesting and I still haven't played the first XCOM..any thoughts from anyone on that game? Should I just start with this one and then play the first, since this is technically a prequel?
I'm seeing an awful lot of pausing of gameplay activity for a "real time" strategy game.
He may call it slow down but if you want to see slow down look to a game like Red Dead Redemption that gives you like a few extra seconds tops. This looks like pausing to me.
@Ravenlock_2112 They said there will be no base-building in this game:
Q: Is base-building and character progression still a part of the game?
Bihary: This isn’t a base-management game, it’s a battlefield management game, so we want the player to spend most of their mindshare and imagination on how they and their agents are going to engage on the battlefield.
@uglypinkmoose If you have PSN+, you can get it with many more games.
@uglypinkmoose that's not a reason not to play it if you adhere to the code har har har ...
@JPortman84 XCOM doesn't really have a story besides "stop the aliens".
@TrueGB yeah I agree, I have a feeling the player wont exactly need to use the pause-tactical menu thing though. Like mass effect I think people will just run in and shoot unless its a really high difficulty
