XCOM EU: Welcome to the base

XCOM EU: Welcome to the base

A bit late but here is the latest dev diary of XCOM: Enemy Unknown where Firaxis talks about the base, the place where the player will be elaborating offensive and defensive plans against the invading enemies. The game will be out on October 9th (12th in Europe).

Can't wait to customize my base. Should be one of the best turn based strategy games to come out in a long time.

I was a little worried about this game, if they will not destroy the original idea and gameplay of the first games, but it looks better and better.

About the game


What's up?

    GriftGFX The BF1 interface is literally the same thing. The only difference is you load a huge client to reach the UI instead of clicking on a bookmark. Guess which one is faster? (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And the like.. primary complaint that people had about Battlelog on PC was the plugin. It doesn't use a plugin anymore. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like being able to take stock of my favorites in a manner of seconds. And I don't need to load the client until I find a game I want to play. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea, really. It's much faster than loading a beast of a client just to look at a server browser or join a queue. Why would I want to waste time and resources before I actually need to *play*? (4 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Really? I was never a fan of launching the game through a web browser. The stats and everything else i was okay with. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Why do I want to load a huge game client just to check my favorites? Just to wait in queue? It doesn't make sense. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm scared of the new Battlefield UI. I think Battlelog works pretty great on PC and I'm worried that it'll have a negative impact on the population. (4 Hours ago)
