@PodXCOM I saw UFO Extraterrestrials (No 1) I while ago in the bargain bin but gave a miss but No.2 looks a lot better. I've seen "what is XCOM?" but not the others.I mite buy Xcom if the reviews are good and I can get it cheap.I'm changing plans to a 3Gb so I mite check out the other youtubes later.
@Arch-Stanton Thanks, sorry for the long wait. I hope this game is what you are looking for, but I can't say the same thing for myself. Everything about this game seems bad. Did you see the two videos they made, explaining how the games works? one of them is called "XCOM E3 2011 Playthrough", and the other is called "what is XCOM?" I've seen them, but they still didn't make me like the game. But there is this recap up video called "Intermission: X-COM Revisited" and it's about 42 min long. It explain why the new game isn't X-COM. But I don't think you would want to see it all ;P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SH19sgisEk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqfH6E1YZNk
I like all the different elements this game is bringing to the table such as; Team gameplay, party customization, and deep story this is going to be an awesome game.
And I just found this now: http://www.ufo2extraterrestrials.com/
If you want a real X-COM, then go Pre-order Xenonauts: http://www.xenonauts.com/
What this game is going to have: -No Base Building. -No Base Control. -No Tanks to send into battle. -No Research (they have something called "Research points", which is just another way of saying "experience points"). -No Manufacturing. -No Random Missions. -No UFO to shoot down. -No more then two men/NPCs to command, but they can never die. -No Nations/City to protect. -No Micromanaging of any kind. -No real Strategy of any kind. -Nothing, and I mean *NOTHING* from the first 3 games to connect it to X-COM. -NO homage beyond ONE or TWO names.
Finally some honesty. No more of that we are making a first person shooter crap, calling us stupid to our face.
