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?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth not really. i'm thinking it's a real time sink, and i don't have room for one :) (5 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks are you on the fence about this game? It's not too expensive at $40 (6 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth which is by people who liked the game, if not they wouldn't have stuck with it. (7 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth user reviews are sorta problematic too as early reviews are affected by things like server problems the first hours or days, while late reviews are often from people with hundreds of hours played, (8 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks I bet it scores mid 9's. Metacritic user reviews so far are pretty funny in the negative column (11 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth in some ways it's the same with games that are buggy or lack content at launch. a revised review a few weeks or months later is one way. (12 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @Moonwalker: they're waiting to see if the online is broken or not? Which they probably should have done for hundreds of other games getting high 9's with non functional mp (19 minutes ago)
