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.

    asdfg You're welcome in the overwatch thread too. Just keep in mind Tinks is in there and he might have rabies, we have taken him to the vet yet, so be careful if he starts to get weird. :) (2 minutes ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg I know the feeling. Overwatch can be really frustrating if you have a bad team composition or you don't get anything done but when a team clicks and you win, especially close games, it's glorious (26 minutes ago)

    Sath @asdfg: ah well, not having a very good experience, decent at now lol (31 minutes ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg with depth in its gameplay with numerous different cool combos you could do with teammates (33 minutes ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @Sath: it gets easier with experience to know when to strike, keep track of the opposing teams heroes and what the possible outcomes of their abilities are. What you see as annoying I see as a game (33 minutes ago)
  • Sath
    Sath I think its pretty annoying how that happens, i dont like to "guess" if he was souped up or not since you cant tell. I am just saying what i experienced and its not just one time. (42 minutes ago)

    asdfg Or maybe 140 is for headshots, Grift needs to wake up. He's better at stats than me. :) (46 minutes ago)
